    1) A sphere has a radius 1.500m Find its volume in cm^3. Find its surface area in m^2 and in mm^2?

    r= 1.5 metres
    = 150 cm
    = 1500 mm
    Volume=(4/3)pi r 3= 14137167 cm3
    Surface area=4pi r 2= 28.2743 m2
    = 28274333.88 mm2

    2) A truncated right circular cone has dimensions:
    upper base diameter =1.50cm
    lower base diameter = 4.00cm
    height = 6.00cm
    Find its volume in cm^3, m^3, mm^3

    To find the volume of the truncated cone
    Volume=(1/3)pi r1 2 (h1+h2)-(1/3)pi r2 2 h2=

    r1= lower base radius 2 cm
    or 0.02 m
    or 20 mm

    r2= upper base radius 0.75 cm
    or 0.0075 m
    or 7.5 mm

    h1= height of truncated cone 6 cm
    or 0.06 m
    or 60 mm

    h2= height by which the cone has been truncated

    h2/(h1+h2)=r2/r1
    or h2/(6+h2)=0.75/2= 0.375
    or h2= 3.6 cm
    or 0.036 m
    or 36 mm

    Putting these values into the equation
    Volume= 38.09181092 cm3
    0.000038092 m3
    38091.81 mm2

    Velocity-acceleration
    3) a person walks 5km in 1.5hr. What is the speed in mi/hr, m/s, and ft/s?

    1 Km= 1000 metres

    1 mile= 1760 yards
    = 5280 feet
    = 1609.34 metres

    1 Km= 0.6214 miles
    = 3281 feet

    Speed=Distance/time=

    Distance= 5 Km Time= 1.5 hrs = 5400 seconds
    = 3.107 miles
    = 16405 feet

    Speed= 2.07 mi/hr
    = 0.93 m/s
    = 3.04 ft/s
    4) A car can accelerate from rest to 60 mi/hr in 7 s. Express this acceleration in the following units(assume constant acceleration)
    ft/s^2
    km/hr/s
    m/s^2

    acceleration= change in velocity/change in time
    change in velocity= 60-0= 60 mi/hr
    = 96.56 Km/hr 1 mile= 1.6093 Km
    = 26.82 m/s 1 mile= 1609.34 m 1 hr= 3600 s
    = 88 ft/s 1 mile= 5280 ft
    change in time= 7 s

    acceleration= 12.57 ft/s2
    = 13.79 Km/hr/s
    = 3.83 m/s2

    5)A turntable accelerates from rest to 33 rpm in 0.6s. Express this acceleration in rev/s^2 and rad/s^2.

    1 rpm= 2pi radians
    = 6.283 radians

    change in angular velocity ,w = 33 revolutions
    = 207.339 radians

    change in time= 0.6 s

    acceleration= 55.00 rev/s2
    = 345.57 rad/s2

    6)A subway train starts from rest at a station, accelerates uniformly at a rate of 2.0 m/s^2 for 15 s,
    cruises at constant speed from 30 s, and then decelerates uniformly coming to rest
    at the next station after a total trip time of 54 s. How far apart are the stations? Express your answers in m, km and mi.

    s= ut+ 1/2 a t 2
    s= distance travelled
    u= initial velocity
    t= time
    a= acceleration
    There are three phases
    1)When the train is accelerating
    u= 0
    a= 2 m/s2
    t= 15 s
    s= ut+ 1/2 a t 2= 225 metres

    2)When the train is moving at constant speed for 30 seconds
    After the train has accelerated for 15 seconds the velocity is
    v=u+at= 30 m/s

    s=vt= 900 metres

    3)When the train is decelerating

    u= 30 m/s
    v= 0 m/s
    t= 9 s =54-(15+30); 15 seconds for part 1 and 30 seconds for part 2

    v=u+at
    a=(v-u)/t= -3.33 m/s2
    s= ut+ 1/2 a t 2= 135.14 metres

    Total distance= distance travelled in parts 1,2,3= 1260.14 m
    = 1.26014 Km
    = 0.783050996 mi

    7)An electrically powered grindstone wheel rotates at 2,000 rpm for 50 s and the power is then switched off.
    the wheel comes to rest 40.0 s later. Calculate: The angular deceleration in rad/s ^2 and rev/min/s.

    Determine the total angular distance traveled over the 90 s time interval, expressed in both radians and revolutions?
    1 rev=2pie rad; rev/rad=[.1592]; rad/rev=[2pie=6.283

    change in angular velocity= 2000 rpm
    = 12566 radians/minute
    = 209.4333333 radians/second

    change in time= 40 s

    angular decelarion=change in angular velocity/change in time=
    5.2358 rad/s2
    = 50 rev/m/s = 0.833333333 rev/s^2

    During first phase for 50 seconds
    angular distance=w t= 1666.67 revolutions

    During second phase for 40 seconds
    angular distance=w t-1/2*angular deceleration*t^2
    = 666.6666667 revolutions

    Total= 2333.33 revolutions
    = 14660.33 radians
