- 2.Which of the following statements about vectors and scalars is TRUE?
- A.
A vector is a large quantity and a scalar is a small quantity

- B.
A scalar quantity has a magnitude and a vector quantity does not

- C.
A vector quantity is described with a direction and a scalar is not

- D.

- A.
Accelerating

- B.
Accelerating at a greater rate than car B

- C.

- 6.A 2.0-kg box is attached by a string to a 5.0-kg box. A compressed spring is placed between them. The two boxes are initially at rest on a friction-free track. The string is cut and the spring applies an impulse to both boxes, setting them in motion. The 2.0-kg box is propelled backwards and moves 1.2 meters to the end of the track in 0.50 seconds. Determine the time it takes the 5.0-kg box to move 0.90 meters to the opposite end of the track.
- A.
2.32 s

- B.
3.6 s

- C.
0.45 s

- D.
0.94 s

- 7.A 945-kg car traveling rightward at 22.6 m/s slams on the brakes and skids to a stop (with locked wheels). If the coefficient of friction between tires and road is 0.972, determine the distance required to stop.
- A.
13.4 m

- B.
26.8 m

- C.
8.6 m

- D.
17.2 m

^{2}. The takeoff speed for this plane will be 65 m/s. Assuming this minimum acceleration, what is the minimum allowed length for the runway?- A.
704 m

- B.
436.5 m

- C.
032 m

- D.

47.9 m

- B.
123 m

- C.
78.2 m

- D.

- A.
0.5 m/s

- B.
0.33 m/s

- C.
0.67 m/s

- D.
1.0 m/s
