)
(2) Two systems are in thermal equilibrium. The two systems are at the same (
(A) pressure
(B) volume
(C) temperature
(D) internal energy
)

(3) For the ideal gas, isothermal process means (
(A) Temperature is constant.

3. Calculate the Following Problems: (2 problems, total 40 marks)
(1) (20 marks) A uniform rod of mass M and length L can pivot freely (Ignoring friction)
about a hinge attached to the case of a large machine shown in figure 1. The rod is held
horizontally and then released. At the moment of release, determine (I) the angular
acceleration of the rod, and (II) the linear acceleration of the tip of the rod. Assuming the
force of gravity acts at the center of mass of the rod. The moment of inertia of a uniform
1
rod pivoted about its end is I= ML2.

(2) (20 marks)
A ball of mass m=2.6 kg, starting from rest y1, falls a vertical distance h=0.55 m before
striking a vertical coiled spring, and it compresses an amount Y=0.15 m at the position of
y3 seen in figure 2. Determine the spring constant of the spring. Assume the spring has
negligible mass, and measure all distances from the point where the ball first touches the
uncompressed spring y2.
