Warm-Up Exercise for lecture 14

Physics 105, Fall 2009

Enter your 3-digit class identification number:

Enter the last 4 digits of your BYU ID:

Did you complete the reading assignment? (Typically this means at least 20-30 minutes looking over the assigned sections of the book.)
☐ yes ☐ no

In order to apply the most torque to a screw, you should:
☐ use a wrench with a long handle
☐ use a wrench with a short handle
☐ there would be no difference

Two people sit on a seesaw. They sit in positions such that the seesaw is balanced in a horizontal position. True/False: The two people must weigh the same amount.
☐ true
☐ false

If an object is in equilibrium:
☐ the net force on it must be zero
☐ the net torque on it must be zero
☐ both of the above
☐ neither of the above

Ralph noticed that both torque and work are obtained by multiplying a force times a distance. He wants to know: how are they different? Do they have the same units? What can you tell Ralph to help him out?

The comments in the next next two boxes go into a big, mostly anonymous text file that I skim through before the morning lecture, using the comments to help me plan class discussion. ("Mostly anonymous", because I can track down who made what comment, but it takes some effort on my part to do so.) Therefore, if you really want to make sure I see your question/comment and answer it individually, you should send it to me via email and not through this form.

Which part of today's assignment was particularly hard or confusing? What would you like to spend extra time on in class?
