The dominant form of drag experienced by vehicles (bikes, cars,planes, etc.) at operating speeds is called form drag. Itincreases quadratically with velocity (essentially because theamount of air you run into increase with v and so does the amount of force you must exert on each small volume of air). Thus
\(\displaystyle{F}_{{{d}{r}{u}{g}}}={C}_{{d}}{A}{v}^{{2}}\)
where A is the cross-sectional area of the vehicle and \(\displaystyle{C}_{{d}}\) is called the coefficient of drag.
Part A:
Consider a vehicle moving with constant velocity \(\displaystyle\vec{{{v}}}\). Find the power dissipated by form drag.
Express your answer in terms of \(\displaystyle{C}_{{d}},{A},\) and speed v.
Part B:
A certain car has an engine that provides a maximum power \(\displaystyle{P}_{{0}}\). Suppose that the maximum speed of thee car, \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}\), is limited by a drag force proportional to the square of the speed (as in the previous part). The car engine is now modified, so that the new power \(\displaystyle{P}_{{1}}\) is 10 percent greater than the original power (\(\displaystyle{P}_{{1}}={110}\%{P}_{{0}}\)).
Assume the following:
The top speed is limited by air drag.
The magnitude of the force of air drag at these speeds is proportional to the square of the speed.
By what percentage, \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{v}_{{1}}-{v}_{{0}}}}{{{v}_{{0}}}}}\), is the top speed of the car increased?
Express the percent increase in top speed numerically to two significant figures.

The unstable nucleus uranium-236 can be regarded as auniformly charged sphere of charge Q=+92e and radius \(\displaystyle{R}={7.4}\times{10}^{{-{15}}}\) m. In nuclear fission, this can divide into twosmaller nuclei, each of 1/2 the charge and 1/2 the voume of theoriginal uranium-236 nucleus. This is one of the reactionsthat occurred n the nuclear weapon that exploded over Hiroshima, Japan in August 1945.
A. Find the radii of the two "daughter" nuclei of charge+46e.
B. In a simple model for the fission process, immediatelyafter the uranium-236 nucleus has undergone fission the "daughter"nuclei are at rest and just touching. Calculate the kineticenergy that each of the "daughter" nuclei will have when they arevery far apart.
C. In this model the sum of the kinetic energies of the two"daughter" nuclei is the energy released by the fission of oneuranium-236 nucleus. Calculate the energy released by thefission of 10.0 kg of uranium-236. The atomic mass ofuranium-236 is 236 u, where 1 u = 1 atomic mass unit \(\displaystyle={1.66}\times{10}^{{-{27}}}\) kg. Express your answer both in joules and in kilotonsof TNT (1 kiloton of TNT releases 4.18 x 10^12 J when itexplodes).

In the figure below, the rolling axle, 1.43 m long, is pushed along horizontal rails at a constant speed v = 3.36 m/s.

A resistor R = 0.325 ohm is connected to the rails at points a and b, directly opposite each other. (The wheels make good electrical contact with the rails, and so the axle, rails, and R form a closed-loop circuit. The only significant resistance in the circuit is R.)
