Problems & Exercises
(a) 2.58 g
(b) The volume of your body increases by the volume of air you inhale. The average density of your body decreases when you take a deep breath, because the density of air is substantially smaller than the average density of the body before you took the deep breath.
(a) 0.163 m
(b) Equivalent to 19.4 gallons, which is reasonable
(a) 20.5 mm Hg
(b) The range of pressures in the eye is 12–24 mm Hg, so the result in part (a) is within that range
; or 251 atm
Now, using equation:
In other words, the work output equals the work input.
(b) If the system is not moving, friction would not play a role. With friction, we know there are losses, so that ; therefore, the work output is less than the work input. In other words, with friction, you need to push harder on the input piston than was calculated for the nonfriction case.
(a) 41.4 g
(a) 39.5 g
It is ethyl alcohol.
She indeed floats more in seawater.
(c) Yes, the cork will float because
The difference is
where = density of fluid. Therefore,
where is the weight of the fluid displaced.
Based on the values in table, the fluid is probably glycerin.
Alcohol forms the most stable bubble, since the absolute pressure inside is closest to atmospheric pressure.
This is near the value of for most organic liquids.
The ratio is negative because water is raised whereas mercury is lowered.
(b) , which is sufficient to trigger micturition reflex
(a) 13.6 m water
(b) 76.5 cm water
(a) 2.97 cm
(c) Work is done by the surface tension force through an effective distance to raise the column of water.
(c) 283 N
(a) 867 N
(b) This is too much force to exert with a hand pump.
(c) The assumed radius of the pump is too large; it would be nearly two inches in diameter—too large for a pump or even a primary cylinder. The pressure is reasonable for bicycle tires.
