ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS
* An asterisk indicates an item new to this edition. Q1.1 Density varies with temperature and pressure. It would be necessary to measure both mass and volume very accurately in order to use the density of water as a standard. (a) 0.3 millimeters (b) 50 microseconds (c) 7.2 kilograms The answer is yes for (a), (c), and (f ). You cannot add or subtract a number of apples and a number of jokes. The answer is no for (b), (d), and (e). Consider the gauge of a sausage, 4 kg 2 m, or the volume of a cube, (2 m)3. Thus we have (a) yes (b) no (c) yes (d) no (e) no (f ) yes

Q1.4

No: A dimensionally correct equation need not be true. Example: 1 chimpanzee = 2 chimpanzee is dimensionally correct. Yes: If an equation is not dimensionally correct, it cannot be correct. The meterstick measurement, (a), and (b) can all be 4.31 cm. The meterstick measurement and (c) can both be 4.24 cm. Only (d) does not overlap. Thus (a) (b) and (c) all agree with the meterstick measurement. 41 41 (1 L 1.3 )(1 qt 1 L)(1 gal 4 qt) (10 1.3) gal 8 gallons, answer (c)

This value is intermediate V 1.08 10 21 m 3 between the tabulated densities of aluminum and iron. Typical rocks have densities around 2 000 to 3 000 kg m3. The average density of the Earth is signicantly higher, so higher-density material must be down below the surface.

## Matter and Model-Building

From the gure, we may see that the spacing between diagonal planes is half the distance between diagonally adjacent atoms on a at plane. This diagonal distance may be obtained from the Pythagorean theorem, Ldiag = L2 + L2 . Thus, since the atoms are separated by a distance 1 2 L = 0.200 nm, the diagonal planes are separated by L + L2 = 0.141 nm . 2

Dimensional Analysis This is incorrect since the units of [ ax ] are m 2 s 2 , while the units of [ v ] are m s .

## = L2 , so this must be area (c).

Expression (ii) has dimension L, so it is (a). Expression (iii) has dimension L ( L2 ) = L3, so it is (b). Thus, (a) = ii; (b) = iii; (c) = i .

(150 ft ) 3.281 ft 3.281 ft Finalize: Our calculated result agrees reasonably well with our initial estimate and has the proper units of m 2. Unit conversion is a common technique that is applied to many problems. P1.12 (a) V = ( 40.0 m ) ( 20.0 m ) (12.0 m ) = 9.60 10 3 m 3 V = 9.60 10 3 m 3 ( 3.28 ft 1 m ) = 3.39 10 5 ft 3

The area of the four walls is (3.6 + 3.8 + 3.6 + 3.8)m (2.5 m) = 37 m2. Each sheet in the book has area (0.21 m) (0.28 m) = 0.059 m2. The number of sheets required for wallpaper is 37 m2 0.059 m2 = 629 sheets = 629 sheets(2 pages 1 sheet) = 1260 pages.

From Table 14.1, the density of lead is 1.13 10 4 kg m 3 , so we should expect our calculated value to be close to this number. This density value tells us that lead is about 11 times denser than water, which agrees with our experience that lead sinks. Density is dened as mass per volume, in =

Our result is indeed close to the expected value. Since the last reported signicant digit is not certain, the difference in the two values is probably due to measurement uncertainty and should not be a concern. One important common-sense check on density values is that objects which sink in water must have a density greater than 1 g cm 3, and objects that oat must be less dense than water.

The sphere of lower density has larger radius. The fraction Fe is the factor of change between the densities, a number greater than 1. Its cube root Al is a number much closer to 1.

## Estimates and Order-of-Magnitude Calculations

Model the room as a rectangular solid with dimensions 4 m by 4 m by 3 m, and each ping-pong ball as a sphere of diameter 0.038 m. The volume of the room is 4 4 3 = 48 m 3, while the volume of one ball is 4 0.038 m = 2.87 10 5 m 3. 3 2 48 Therefore, one can t about ~ 10 6 ping-pong balls in the room. 2.87 10 5 As an aside, the actual number is smaller than this because there will be a lot of space in the room that cannot be covered by balls. In fact, even in the best arrangement, the so-called best packing fraction is 1 2 = 0.74 so that at least 26% of the space will be empty. Therefore, the 6 above estimate reduces to 1.67 10 6 0.740 ~ 10 6 .

Assume the tub measures 1.3 m by 0.5 m by 0.3 m. One-half of its volume is then V = ( 0.5) (1.3 m ) ( 0.5 m ) ( 0.3 m ) = 0.10 m 3. The mass of this volume of water is mwater = waterV = (1 000 kg m 3 ) ( 0.10 m 3 ) = 100 kg ~ 10 2 kg . Pennies are now mostly zinc, but consider copper pennies lling 50% of the volume of the tub. The mass of copper required is mcopper = copperV = (8 920 kg m 3 ) ( 0.10 m 3 ) = 892 kg ~ 10 3 kg .

The equation 2 x 4 3 x 3 + 5 x 70 = 0 is quartic, so we do not attempt to solve it with algebra.

We see that the equation y = 0 has two roots, one around x = 2.2 and the other near x = +2.7. To home in on the rst of these solutions we compute in sequence: When x = 2.2, y = 2.20. The root must be between x = 2.2 and x = 3. When x = 2.3, y = 11.0 . The root is between x = 2.2 and x = 2.3. When x = 2.23, y = 1.58 . The root is between x = 2.20 and x = 2.23. When x = 2.22, y = 0.301. The root is between x = 2.20 and 2.22. When x = 2.215, y = 0.331. The root is between x = 2.215 and 2.22. We could next try x = 2.218, but we already know to three-digit precision that the root is x = 2.22. *P1.37 tan We require sin = 3 cos , or sin = 3 , or tan = 3. cos For tan 1 ( 3) = arc tan ( 3) , your calculator may return 71.6, but this angle is not between 0 and 360 as the problem 0 requires. The tangent function is negative in the second quadrant (between 90 and 180) and in the fourth quadrant (from 270 to 360). The solutions to the equation are then 360 71.6 = 288 and 180 71.6 = 108 .

The angle between these two radii has its sides perpendicular, right side to right side and left side to left side, to the 35 angle between the original and nal tangential directions of travel. A most useful theorem from R geometry then identies these angles as equal: = 35. The whole circumference of a 360 circle of the same radius is 2 R.
