Problems: All answers must have work, significant figures and correct units. CIRCLE YOUR FINAL ANSWERS FOR EACH PART.
1. A small ferret comes to help Roxie with the rock that is blocking her den. They push with a total force of 90 N moving the boulder
a distance of 5m. How much work do they do? (2 pt)
2. How much power does a crane lifting 250 N a distance of 150 m up in 30.0 seconds need to generate? (3 pt)
3. I pull a crate (there he goes with the “crate” obsession again…) with a rope along the floor at a constant speed. If I pull with a force
of 260 N while the rope makes an angle of 60.0º with the flat surface of the floor, what distance would I need to cover in order to
generate 1.0 kW (1,000 watts) in 5.0 seconds? (3 pt)
4. Suppose that a car with a miracle engine is 100% efficient with the work it does. This implies that about 150 million joules of work
per gallon of gasoline is done. If the air drag and overall frictional forces on this car traveling at its optimal, constant cruising speed
on the highway is 2.0 x 102 N (a very reasonable estimate), what is the upper limit in distance per gallon that such a car could cover
at that constant speed? [Hint: Once at the optimal cruising speed, the only force the car engine would have to exert would be
enough to overcome all forms of friction. And the energy released by the fuel would all go to doing work.] What does this tell you
about fuel efficiency of “normal” gasoline engines at the present time? [Recall: 1 mile = 1.609 km] (3 pt)
