Instructor’s Solution Manual for Fundamentals of Physics, 6/E by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker James B. Whitenton Southern Polytechnic State University ii Preface This booklet includes the solutions relevant to the EXERCISES & PROBLEMS sections of the 6th edition of Fundamentals of Physics, by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker. We also include solutions to problems in the Problems Supplement. We have not included solutions or discussions which pertain to the QUESTIONS sections. I am very grateful for helpful input from J. Richard Christman, Meighan Dillon, Barbara Moore, and Jearl Walker regarding the development of this document. iii iv PREFACE Chapter 1 1. The metric preﬁxes (micro, pico, nano,...) are given for ready reference on the inside front coverof the textbook (see also Table 1-2). (a) Since 1km =1 103m and 1m =1 106µm, × × 1km=103m=(103m)(106µm/m)=109µm. 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 1cm=10 2m, − 1cm=10 2m=(10 2m)(106µm/m)=104µm. − − We conclude that the fraction of one centimeter equal to 1.0µm is 1.0 10 4. − × (c) Since 1yd =(3ft)(0.3048m/ft)=0.9144m, 1.0yd=(0.91m)(106µm/m)=9.1 105µm. × 2.

We multiply this by the perch2 rood conversion factor (1rood/40perch2) to obtain the answer: → A =14.5 roods. total (b) We convert our intermediate result in part (a): 2 16.5 ft A =(580 perch2) =1.58 105 ft2 . total 1 perch × (cid:18) (cid:19) Now, we use the feet meters conversiongiven in Appendix D to obtain → 2 1 m A = 1.58 105 ft2 =1.47 104 m2 . total × 3.281 ft × (cid:18) (cid:19) (cid:0) (cid:1) 7. The volume of ice is given by the product of the semicircular surface area and the thickness. The semicircle area is A=πr2/2, where r is the radius. Therefore, the volume is π V = r2z 2 where z is the ice thickness. Since there are 103 m in 1 km and 102 cm in 1 m, we have 103m 102cm r=(2000km) =2000 105 cm . 1km 1m × (cid:18) (cid:19)(cid:18) (cid:19) In these units, the thickness becomes 102cm z =(3000m) =3000 102cm . 1m × (cid:18) (cid:19) Therefore, V = π 2000 105cm 2 3000 102cm =1.9 1022cm3 . 2 × × × (cid:0) (cid:1) (cid:0) (cid:1) 8. The total volume V of the real house is that of a triangular prism (of height h = 3.0 m and base area A=20 12=240 m2) in addition to a rectangular box (height h =6.0 m and same base). Therefore, ′ × 1 h V = hA+hA= +h A=1800 m3 . ′ ′ 2 2 (cid:18) (cid:19) 3 (a) Each dimension is reduced by a factor of 1/12,and we ﬁnd 3 1 V = 1800 m3 1.0 m3 . doll 12 ≈ (cid:18) (cid:19) (cid:0) (cid:1) (b) In this case, each dimension (relative to the real house) is reduced by a factor of 1/144.

(b) Denoting the age of the universe as 1 u-day (or 86400 u-sec), then the time during which humans have existed is given by 106 =10 4 u-day , − 1010 which we may also express as 86400 u-sec 10−4 u-day =8.6 u-sec . 1 u-day (cid:18) (cid:19) (cid:0) (cid:1) 13. None of the clocks advance by exactly 24hin a 24-hperiod 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. Iftheclockreadingjumpsaroundfromone24-hperiodtoanother,itcannotbecorrectedsince itwouldimpossibletotellwhatthecorrectionshouldbe. Thefollowinggivesthecorrections(inseconds) that must be applied to the reading oneachclock for each24-hperiod. The entries were determined by subtracting the clock reading at the end of the interval from the clock reading at the beginning. CLOCK Sun. Mon. Tues. Wed. Thurs.

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 15s to 17s. For clock B it is the range from 5s to +10s, for clock E it is in the range from 70s to 2s. − − − 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 the worst, the ranking of the clocks is C, D, A, B, E. 14. The time on any of these clocks is a straight-line function of that on another, with slopes= 1 and 6 y-intercepts=0.

Since a change of longitude equal to 360 corresponds to a 24 hour change, then one expects to change ◦ longitude by 360 /24=15 before resetting one’s watch by 1.0 h. ◦ ◦ 17. The last day of the 20 centuries is longer than the ﬁrst day by (20century)(0.001s/century)=0.02s. The average day during the 20 centuries is (0+0.02)/2 = 0.01 s longer than the ﬁrst day. Since the increase occurs uniformly, the cumulative eﬀect T is T = (average increase in length of a day)(number of days) 0.01s 365.25day = (2000y) day y (cid:18) (cid:19)(cid:18) (cid:19) = 7305 s or roughly two hours. 18. We denote the pulsar rotation rate f (for frequency). 1 rotation f = 1.55780644887275 10 3s × − (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: 1rotation N = (604800s)=388238218.4 1.55780644887275 10 3s (cid:18) × − (cid:19) 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 1 rotation 1 106 = t × 1.55780644887275 10 3s (cid:18) × − (cid:19) which yields the result t = 1557.80644887275s (though students who do this calculation on their calculator might not obtain those last several digits).
