Assignment #12 – Chapter 27 Problems

Chapter 27

1*, 4, 7, 8, 12, 15, 16, 20, 21, 28, 31, 36

Due Monday

For problem 1, modify it so that the sound appears to be traveling at 335 m/s and 355 m/s.  The numbers listed seem fishy though.

One source stated Usain Bolt’s top speed was 43.93 km/h ( 27.3 mph) in m/s is 12.2 m/s.

I used 12 m/s as an approximation for his max speed.

If you used the numbers listed in the book…… you would get a speed that seems unreasonable to me.

Test 5 Preparation

Know how to do these problems:

Chapter 24: 2, 14, 18, 25, 29, 31

Chapter 25: 8, 15 (try #16), 23, 28, 31, 37, 45

 

Other types of problems may show up on the test, but the list above will cover at least most (if not all) problems that will be on the test.
