2. The conversion factors are: 1 gry 1/10 line= , 1 line 1/12 inch= and 1 point = 1/72 inch. The factors imply that

1 gry = (1/10)(1/12)(72 points) = 0.60 point. Thus, 1 gry2 = (0.60 point)2 = 0.36 point2, which means that 2 20.50 gry = 0.18 point . 3. The metric prefixes (micro, pico, nano, …) are given for ready reference on the inside front cover of the textbook (see also Table 1–2). (a) Since 1 km = 1 × 103 m and 1 m = 1 × 106 μm,

( ) ( )3 3 6 91km 10 m 10 m 10 m m 10 m.= = =μ μ The given measurement is 1.0 km (two significant figures), which implies our result should be written as 1.0 × 109 μm. (b) We calculate the number of microns in 1 centimeter. Since 1 cm = 10−2 m,

( ) ( )2 2 6 41cm = 10 m = 10 m 10 m m 10 m.− − =μ μ

We conclude that the fraction of one centimeter equal to 1.0 μm is 1.0 × 10−4. (c) Since 1 yd = (3 ft)(0.3048 m/ft) = 0.9144 m,

5. Given that 1 furlong 201.168 m= , 1 rod 5.0292 m= and 1chain 20.117 m= , we find the relevant conversion factors to be

1 rod1.0 furlong 201.168 m (201.168 m ) 40 rods, 5.0292 m

and 1 chain1.0 furlong 201.168 m (201.168 m ) 10 chains

20.117 m = = = .

Note the cancellation of m (meters), the unwanted unit. Using the given conversion
factors, we find
(a) the distance *d in rods* to be

6. We make use of Table 1-6. (a) We look at the first (“cahiz”) column: 1 fanega is equivalent to what amount of cahiz? We note from the already completed part of the table that 1 cahiz equals a dozen fanega. Thus, 1 fanega = 112 cahiz, or 8.33 × 10

−2 cahiz. Similarly, “1 cahiz = 48 cuartilla” (in the

already completed part) implies that 1 cuartilla = 148 cahiz, or 2.08 × 10 −2 cahiz.

Continuing in this way, the remaining entries in the first column are 6.94 × 10−3 and 33.47 10−× .

(b) In the second (“fanega”) column, we find 0.250, 8.33 × 10−2, and 4.17 × 10−2 for the last three entries. (c) In the third (“cuartilla”) column, we obtain 0.333 and 0.167 for the last two entries. (d) Finally, in the fourth (“almude”) column, we get 12 = 0.500 for the last entry. (e) Since the conversion table indicates that 1 almude is equivalent to 2 medios, our amount of 7.00 almudes must be equal to 14.0 medios. (f) Using the value (1 almude = 6.94 × 10−3 cahiz) found in part (a), we conclude that 7.00 almudes is equivalent to 4.86 × 10−2 cahiz. (g) Since each decimeter is 0.1 meter, then 55.501 cubic decimeters is equal to 0.055501 m3 or 55501 cm3. Thus, 7.00 almudes = 7.0012 fanega =

7.00 12 (55501 cm

3) = 3.24 × 104 cm3.
7. We use the conversion factors found in Appendix D.

9. The volume of ice is given by the product of the semicircular surface area and the
thickness. The area of the semicircle is *A* = π*r*2/2, where *r* is the radius. Therefore, the
volume is

10. Since a change of longitude equal to 360° corresponds to a 24 hour change, then one expects to change longitude by360 / 24 15° = ° before resetting one's watch by 1.0 h. 11. (a) Presuming that a French decimal day is equivalent to a regular day, then the ratio of weeks is simply 10/7 or (to 3 significant figures) 1.43. (b) In a regular day, there are 86400 seconds, but in the French system described in the problem, there would be 105 seconds. The ratio is therefore 0.864. 12. A day is equivalent to 86400 seconds and a meter is equivalent to a million micrometers, so

(d) From *tC* = 15 = (2/7)*tB* + (594/7), we get *tB* ≈ −245 s.
14. The metric prefixes (micro (μ), pico, nano, …) are given for ready reference on the
inside front cover of the textbook (also Table 1–2).

15. A week is 7 days, each of which has 24 hours, and an hour is equivalent to 3600
seconds. Thus, two weeks (a fortnight) is 1209600 s. By definition of the micro prefix,
this is roughly 1.21 × 1012 μs.
16. We denote the pulsar rotation rate *f* (for frequency).

*f *−= ×

(a) Multiplying *f* by the time-interval *t* = 7.00 days (which is equivalent to 604800 s, if
we ignore *significant figure* considerations for a moment), we obtain the number of
rotations:

which should now be rounded to 3.88 × 108 rotations since the time-interval was
specified in the problem to three significant figures.
(b) We note that the problem specifies the *exact* number of pulsar revolutions (one
million). In this case, our unknown is *t*, and an equation similar to the one we set up in
part (a) takes the form *N *= *ft*, or

*CHAPTER 1 *6

which yields the result *t* = 1557.80644887275 s (though students who do this calculation
on their calculator might not obtain those last several digits).
(c) Careful reading of the problem shows that the time-uncertainty *per revolution* is

173 10 s−± × . We therefore expect that as a result of one million revolutions, the uncertainty should be 17 6 11 ( 3 10 )(1 10 )= 3 10 s− −± × × ± × . 17. None of the clocks advance by exactly 24 h in a 24-h period but this is not the most important criterion for judging their quality for measuring time intervals. What is important is that the clock advance by the same amount in each 24-h period. The clock reading can then easily be adjusted to give the correct interval. If the clock reading jumps around from one 24-h period to another, it cannot be corrected since it would impossible to tell what the correction should be. The following gives the corrections (in seconds) that must be applied to the reading on each clock for each 24-h period. The entries were determined by subtracting the clock reading at the end of the interval from the clock reading at the beginning.

Clocks C and D are both good timekeepers in the sense that each is consistent in its daily drift (relative to WWF time); thus, C and D are easily made “perfect” with simple and predictable corrections. The correction for clock C is less than the correction for clock D, so we judge clock C to be the best and clock D to be the next best. The correction that must be applied to clock A is in the range from 15 s to 17s. For clock B it is the range from -5 s to +10 s, for clock E it is in the range from -70 s to -2 s. After C and D, A has the smallest range of correction, B has the next smallest range, and E has the greatest range. From best to worst, the ranking of the clocks is C, D, A, B, E. 18.

19. When the Sun first disappears while lying down, your line of sight to the top of the
Sun is tangent to the Earth’s surface at point *A* shown in the figure. As you stand,
elevating your eyes by a height *h*, the line of sight to the Sun is tangent to the Earth’s
surface at point *B*.

Let *d* be the distance from point *B* to your eyes. From the Pythagorean theorem, we have
2 2 2 2 2( ) 2*d r r h r rh h*+ = + = + +
or 2 22 ,*d rh h*= + where *r* is the radius of the Earth. Since *r h *, the second term can be
dropped, leading to 2 2*d rh*≈ . Now the angle between the two radii to the two tangent
points *A* and *B* is θ, which is also the angle through which the Sun moves about Earth
during the time interval *t* = 11.1 s. The value of θ can be obtained by using

*CHAPTER 1 *10

25. The volume of the section is (2500 m)(800 m)(2.0 m) = 4.0 × 106 m3. Letting “*d*”
stand for the thickness of the mud after it has (uniformly) distributed in the valley, then
its volume there would be (400 m)(400 m)*d*. Requiring these two volumes to be equal,
we can solve for *d*. Thus, *d* = 25 m. The volume of a small part of the mud over a patch
of area of 4.0 m2 is (4.0)*d* = 100 m3. Since each cubic meter corresponds to a mass of
1900 kg (stated in the problem), then the mass of that small part of the mud is

51.9 10 kg× . 26. (a) The volume of the cloud is (3000 m)π(1000 m)2 = 9.4 × 109 m3. Since each cubic meter of the cloud contains from 50 × 106 to 500 × 106 water drops, then we conclude that the entire cloud contains from 4.7 × 1018 to 4.7 × 1019 drops. Since the volume of each drop is 43 π(10 × 10

− 6 m)3 = 4.2 × 10−15 m3, then the total volume of water in a cloud

is from 32 10× to 42 10× m3.
(b) Using the fact that 3 3 3 31 L 1 10 cm 1 10 m−= × = × , the amount of water estimated in

(c) At 1000 kg for every cubic meter, the mass of water is from 62 10× to 72 10× kg.
The coincidence in numbers between the results of parts (b) and (c) of this problem is due
to the fact that each liter has a mass of one kilogram when water is at its normal density
(under standard conditions).
27. We introduce the notion of density, /*m V*ρ = , and convert to SI units: 1000 g = 1 kg,

The center-to-center distance between atoms is twice the radius, or 2.82 × 10−10 m. 28. If we estimate the “typical” large domestic cat mass as 10 kg, and the “typical” atom (in the cat) as 10 u ≈ 2 × 10−26 kg, then there are roughly (10 kg)/( 2 × 10−26 kg) ≈ 5 × 1026 atoms. This is close to being a factor of a thousand greater than Avogadro’s number. Thus this is roughly a kilomole of atoms. 29. The mass in kilograms is

30. To solve the problem, we note that the first derivative of the function with respect to
time gives the rate. Setting the rate to zero gives the time at which an extreme value of
the variable mass occurs; here that extreme value is a maximum.

36. Table 7 can be completed as follows: (a) It should be clear that the first column (under “wey”) is the reciprocal of the first row – so that 910 = 0.900,

3
40 ** = **7.50 × 10

−2, and so forth. Thus, 1 pottle = 1.56 × 10−3 wey and 1 gill = 8.32 × 10−6 wey are the last two entries in the first column. (b) In the second column (under “chaldron”), clearly we have 1 chaldron = 1 chaldron (that is, the entries along the “diagonal” in the table must be 1’s). To find out how many chaldron are equal to one bag, we note that 1 wey = 10/9 chaldron = 40/3 bag so that 112

chaldron = 1 bag. Thus, the next entry in that second column is 112 = 8.33 × 10 −2.

Similarly, 1 pottle = 1.74 × 10−3 chaldron and 1 gill = 9.24 × 10−6 chaldron. (c) In the third column (under “bag”), we have 1 chaldron = 12.0 bag, 1 bag = 1 bag, 1 pottle = 2.08 × 10−2 bag, and 1 gill = 1.11 × 10−4 bag. (d) In the fourth column (under “pottle”), we find 1 chaldron = 576 pottle, 1 bag = 48 pottle, 1 pottle = 1 pottle, and 1 gill = 5.32 × 10−3 pottle. (e) In the last column (under “gill”), we obtain 1 chaldron = 1.08 × 105 gill, 1 bag = 9.02 × 103 gill, 1 pottle = 188 gill, and, of course, 1 gill = 1 gill. (f) Using the information from part (c), 1.5 chaldron = (1.5)(12.0) = 18.0 bag. And since each bag is 0.1091 m3 we conclude 1.5 chaldron = (18.0)(0.1091) = 1.96 m3. 37. The volume of one unit is 1 cm3 = 1 × 10−6 m3, so the volume of a mole of them is 6.02 × 1023 cm3 = 6.02 × 1017 m3. The cube root of this number gives the edge length:

39. This problem compares the U.K gallon with U.S. gallon, two non-SI units for volume.
The interpretation of the type of gallons, whether U.K. or U.S., affects the amount of
gasoline one calculates for traveling a given distance.
If the fuel consumption rate is *R * (in miles/gallon), then the amount of gasoline (in
gallons) needed for a trip of distance *d* (in miles) would be

Since the car was manufactured in the U.K., the fuel consumption rate is calibrated based on U.K. gallon, and the correct interpretation should be “40 miles per U.K. gallon.” In U.K., one would think of gallon as U.K. gallon; however, in the U.S., the word “gallon” would naturally be interpreted as U.S. gallon. Note also that since 1 U.K. gallon 4.5460900 L= and 1 U.S. gallon 3.7854118 L= , the relationship between the two is

40. Equation 1-9 gives (to very high precision!) the conversion from atomic mass units to kilograms. Since this problem deals with the ratio of total mass (1.0 kg) divided by the mass of one atom (1.0 u, but converted to kilograms), then the computation reduces to simply taking the reciprocal of the number given in Eq. 1-9 and rounding off appropriately. Thus, the answer is 6.0 × 1026. 41. Using the (exact) conversion 1 in = 2.54 cm = 0.0254 m, we find that

53. The objective of this problem is to convert the Earth-Sun distance to parsecs and
light-years. To relate parsec (pc) to AU, we note that when θ is measured in radians, it is
equal to the arc length *s* divided by the radius *R*. For a very large radius circle and small
value of θ, the arc may be approximated as the straight line-segment of length 1 AU.

**1.The speed (assumed constant) is *v* = (90 km/h)(1000 m/km) ⁄ (3600 s/h) = 25 m/s.
Thus, in 0.50 s, the car travels a distance *d* = *vt* = (25 m/s)(0.50 s) ≈ 13 m.

(c) The graphs are shown below (with meters and seconds understood). The first consists of two (solid) line segments, the first having a slope of 1.22 and the second having a slope of 3.05. The slope of the dashed line represents the average velocity (in both graphs). The second graph also consists of two (solid) line segments, having the same slopes as before — the main difference (compared to the first graph) being that the stage involving higher-speed motion lasts much longer.

3. Since the trip consists of two parts, let the displacements during first and second
parts of the motion be Δ*x*1 and Δ*x*2, and the corresponding time intervals be Δ*t*1 and Δ*t*2,
respectively. Now, because the problem is one-dimensional and both displacements
are in the same direction, the total displacement is Δ*x* = Δ*x*1 + Δ*x*2, and the total time
for the trip is Δ*t* = Δ*t*1 + Δ*t*2. Using the definition of average velocity given in Eq. 2-2,
we have

To find the average speed, we note that during a time Δ*t* if the velocity remains a
positive constant, then the speed is equal to the magnitude of velocity, and the
distance is equal to the magnitude of displacement, with | |*d x v t*= Δ = Δ .

The total displacement is Δ*x* = Δ*x*1 + Δ*x*2 = 40 km + 40 km = 80 km, and the total time

4. Average speed, as opposed to average velocity, relates to the total distance, as
opposed to the net displacement. The distance *D* up the hill is, of course, the same as
the distance down the hill, and since the speed is constant (during each stage of the
motion) we have speed = *D*/*t*. Thus, the average speed is

which, after canceling *D* and plugging in *v*up = 40 km/h and *v*down = 60 km/h, yields 48
km/h for the average speed.
5. Using *x* = 3*t* – 4*t*2 + *t*3 with SI units understood is efficient (and is the approach we
