Question 5
Question
10 kg of the isotope tritium, which has a halflife of 12.3 years, is produced at a reactor. Which of the following values, in kg, is closest to the mass of tritium that will remain after 30 years?
Question 6
Question
A thin lens with focal length f is to be used as a magnifying glass. Which of the following statements regarding this situation is true?
Answer

A converging lens must be used, and the object be placed at a distance greater than 2 from the lens

A diverging lens must be used, and the object be placed between f and 2f from the lens

A converging lens must be used and the object be placed at a distance less than f from the lens

A diverging lens must be used and the object be placed at any point other than the focal point
Question 7
Question
In general. doubling the amplitude of a wave:
Answer

doubles the frequency

halves the period

quadruples the energy

doubles the speed
Question 8
Question

Answer

8 m/s

16 m/s

24 m/s

30 m/s
Question 9
Question
Check all that are true for an ideal stationary fluid.
Answer

The density increases linearly with depth

Only the fluid at the surface is in mechanical equilibrium

The fluid below the surface has a propensity toward the mechanical equilibrium

The pressure increases linearly with depth
Question 10
Question
A woman floats comfortably in a sitting position in a body of water. Her entire torso (above the belly button) is above the surface of the water. What does this situation tell you about the water?
Answer

It's not possible

The water has a dissolve addictive (such as salt) which makes it much more dense than fresh water

The temperature of the water is significantly higher than normal

The woman is wearing a hat made of buoyant material
