For college physics! Please do not take a picture of submission only type it out as it is sometimes difficult for me to read. Thanks!

In your own words, explain mechanical waves and related properties. Also give examples.

One end of a cord is fixed and a small 0.550-kg object is attached to the other end, where it swings in a section of a vertical circle of radius 3.00 m, as shown in the figure below. When θ = 17.0°, the speed of the object is 9.00 m/s. An object is swinging to the right and upward from the end of a cord attached to a horizontal surface. The cord makes an angle θ with the vertical. An arrow labeled vector v points in the direction of motion.

A car of mass 500 kg is going towards east at 20.0 m/s. It hits a slow moving truck (moving at speed 10.0 m/s also going towards east) of mass 2000 kg from back. (a) If after the collision the truck is moving at 15.0 m/s towards east, what is the velocity of the car? (b) If the collision between the car and the truck is perfectly elastic, find their velocities after the collision. (c) Find the percentage loss of kinetic energy of the vehicles due to the collision in both cases.

The question I have to solve is that when two people A
and B run in the opposite direction at the same speed 0.6c, do they
agree with the referee that says the result is draw.

I want to approach this question in a different way so I set that A
looks back to B when he runs to the goal and feels like B is
running at 0.88c. Then does A think B is slower than A because the
relative speed is 0.88c-0.6c=0.22c? Or am I wrong to think this
way? I already found other methods such as time dilation so please
focus on the first method. Thank you.

A flat sheet of chrystalline quartz has a thickness of 2.48 cm. It is on top of a flat sheet of fused quartz that has a thickness of 1.50 cm. Light strikes the chrystalline quartz perpendicularly and travels through it and then through the fused quartz. In the time it takes the light to travel through the two sheets, how far (in cm) would it have traveled in a vacuum?

I am doing an experiment recording the speed of sound. I am using an open-ended cardboard tube that is 76.2cm (30") and the temperature in my room is 75 degrees or 23.89 celsius.

What is my speed of sound (using the speed of sound expression with explanation please)?

Given the length of my tube, what are my first five wavelengths that my tube should resonate (using the standing sound wave formula)?

What are my five wavenumbers (*k)* of the above
(reciprocal).

What *should *my first five resonance
frequencies (predicted) be? If i understand this correctly, I do
this using the theoretical speed of sound calculated above together
with the five resonance wavelengths also determined above.

The average thermal energy of a particle is ~ k_{B}T
where k_{B} is Boltzmann’s constant and T is the
temperature in degrees Kelvin. At room temperature, k_{B}T
= 25 meV = 4.1 x 10-21 J = 4.1 pN – nm =0.6 kcal/mole (eV =
electron volts; J = Joules, N = Newtons; kcal = kilocalories).

a. A typical molecular motor uses 100 to 1000 ATP molecules per second. Calculate how much energy is dissipated in the motor (in Watts, or J/s). Call this power quantity M.

b. Nuclear vibrations occur on the time scale of
10^{-13} sec. Compute the scale of power input to a
molecular motor from random collisions with surrounding water and
call it R, assuming that the collisions transfer about
k_{B}T of energy each. Estimate the ratio R/M.

c. How does your estimate differ if you assume that water
molecules require a diffusion time given by Δx^{2}/D to
transfer k_{B}T of energy to the motor, where Δx is the
average distance between water molecules in solution?

“High voltage” power lines are often seen suspended high above the ground. Two of these power lines are suspended above a physics professor who is out for a walk. The power line on the left carries a current out of the page; the power line on the right carries a current into the page.

a) What is the direction of the magnetic field produced by the two currents at the location of the physics professor? He is on the ground halfway between the two wires. Draw a diagram illustrating your reasoning. Hint: Determine the direction of the magnetic field produced by each current separately, then add them together.

b) The physics professor has been shuffling his feet on the ground as he walks to the right which has made him become negatively charged. Determine the direction of the magnetic force (if any) exerted by the magnetic field on him. Explain your reasoning.

c) Does the power line on the left exert a force on the power line on the right? Explain your reasoning. If you think it does, determine its direction.
