1. The drawing shows three containers filled to the same height with the same fluid. In which container, if any, is the pressure at the bottom greatest? (a) Container A, because its bottom has the greatest surface area. (b) All three containers have the same pressure at the bottom. (c) Container A, because it has the greatest volume of fluid. (d) Container B, because it has the least volume of fluid. (e) Container C, because its bottom has the least surface area. 2. Three solid objects are floating in a liquid, as in the drawing. They have different weights and volumes, but have the same thickness (the dimension perpendicular to the page). Rank the objects according to their density, largest first. (a) A, B, C (b) A, C, B (c) B, A, C (d) B, C, A (e) C, A, B 3. The kinetic energy of an object attached to a horizontal ideal spring is denoted by KE and the elastic potential energy by PE. For the simple harmonic motion of this object the maximum kinetic energy and the maximum elastic potential energy during an oscillation cycle are KEmax and PEmax , respectively. In the absence of friction, air resistance, and any other nonconservative forces, which of the following equations applies to the object–spring system? A. KE+PE = constant B. KEmax = PEmax (a) A, but not B (b) B, but not A (c) A and B (d) Neither A nor B 4. The drawing shows three objects rotating about a vertical axis. The mass of each object is given in terms of m0 , and its perpendicular distance from the axis is specified in terms of r0. Rank the three objects according to their moments of inertia, largest to smallest. (a) A, B, C (b) A, C, B (c) B, A, C (d) B, C, A (e) C, A, B 5. The drawing illustrates an overhead view of a door and its axis of rotation. The axis is perpendicular to the page. There are four forces acting on the door, and they have the same magnitude. Rank the torque τ that each force produces, largest to smallest. (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) τ4 , τ3 , τ2 , τ1 τ3 , τ2 , τ1 and τ4 (a two-way...
