2006 Edition Reference Tables for Physical Setting/Physics
.
Base your answers to questions 51 through 53 on the information below. A student produced various elongations of a spring by applying a series of forces to the spring. The graph below represents the relationship between the applied force and the elongation of the spring.
51. Determine the spring constant of the spring. [1]
52–53. Calculate the energy stored in the spring when the elongation is 0.30 meter. [Show all work, including the equation and substitution with units.] [2]
54–55. Calculate the time required for a 6000.newton net force to stop a 1200.kilogram car initially traveling at 10. meters per second. [Show all work, including the equation and substitution with units.] [2]
56–57. A toy rocket is launched twice into the air from level ground and returns to level ground. The rocket is first launched with initial speed v at an angle of 45° above the horizontal. It is launched the second time with the same initial speed, but with the launch angle increased to 60.° above the horizontal. Describe how both the total horizontal distance the rocket travels and the time in the air are affected by the increase in launch angle. [Neglect friction.] [2]
58–59 Calculate the magnitude of the average gravitational force between Earth and the Moon. [Show all work, including the equation and substitution with units.] [2]

Base your answers to questions 81 through 85 on the information below.
Two experiments running simultaneously at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Ill., have observed a new particle called the cascade baryon. It is one of the most massive examples yet of a baryon—a class of particles made of three quarks held together by the strong nuclear force—and the first to contain one quark from each of the three known families, or generations, of these elementary particles. Protons and neutrons are made of up and down quarks, the two firstgeneration quarks. Strange and charm quarks constitute the second generation, while the top and bottom varieties make up the third. Physicists had long conjectured that a down quark could combine with a strange and a bottom quark to form the threegeneration cascade baryon.On June 13, the scientists running Dzero, one of two detectors at Fermilab’s Tevatron accelerator, announced that they had detected characteristic showers of particles from the decay of cascade baryons. The baryons formed in protonantiproton collisions and lived no more than a trillionth of a second. A week later, physicists at CDF, the Tevatron’s other detector, reported their own sighting of the baryon…
