Question

An externally focusing telescope was used to sight a stadia rod. The length intercepted on the stadia rod is 1.55. If the line of sight is inclined at an angle of 95°15' with the vertical, determine the following:

A.) Horizontal Distance from the telescope to the rod (m)

B.) Vertical Distance from the telescope to the rod (m)

Answer #1

A uniform rod AB of length 7.2 m and mass M = 3.8 kg is hinged
at A and held in equilibrium by a light cord. A load W = 22 N hangs
from the rod at a distance d so that the tension in the cord is 80
N .
Part A) Determine the vertical force on the rod exerted by the
hinge.
Part B)Determine the horizontal force on the rod exerted by the
hinge.
Part C) Determine d...

The figure below shows a person fishing with a fishing rod that
makes an angle of 20.0° above the horizontal. The distance from the
person's hand to the tip of the rod is
L = 2.04 m.
A fish is on the line, and it pulls the line with a force of
F = 121 N
at an angle 37.0° below the horizontal. What is the magnitude of
the torque (in N · m) exerted by the fish about an...

A cylindrical rod of mass 0.82 kg and length 1.88 m is free to
rotate about a pivot fixed at one end. A ball with a mass of 3.2 kg
is attached to the other end of the rod. The rod-and ball system is
held in a horizontal position by a vertical force that acts 1.41 m
from the pivot. The force is then removed, and the rod-and-ball
swings down.
(a) What was the vertical force used to hold the...

A total station is used to determine elevation and distance from
Point M to Point N. You set the prism and the center of the
telescope to the same height. The slope distance is 1807.34' and
the vertical angle is +02.12'15". What is the horizontal distance
from Point M o Point N and what is the change in elevation between
the points M and N?

A rigid rod of mass 5.30 kg and length of 1.50 m rotates in a
vertical (x,y) plane about a frictionless pivot through its center.
Particles m_1 (mass=6.30 kg) and m_2 (mass=2.20 kg) are attached at
the ends of the rod. Determine the size of the angular acceleration
of the system when the rod makes an angle of 42.1° with the
horizontal.

A rod with length L and mass M hangs vertically on a
frictionless, horizontal axel passing through its center. A ball of
mass m traveling horizontally at speed v0 hits and
sticks to the very bottom tip of the rod. To what maximum angle,
measured from vertical, does the rod, with the attached ball,
rotate? Answer in terms m, M, v0, L, and g.

A uniform metal rod, with a mass of 3.0 kg and a length of 1.1 m
, is attached to a wall by a hinge at its base. A horizontal wire
bolted to the wall 0.55 mabove the base of the rod holds the rod at
an angle of 30 ? above the horizontal. The wire is attached to the
top of the rod.
(a) Find the tension in the wire
T = ________ N
(b) Find the hortizonal component...

A cylindrical rod of mass 0.82 kg and length 1.88 m is free to
rotate about a pivot fixed at one end. A ball (mass 3.2 kg) is
attached to the other end of the rod. The rod-and- ball system is
held in a horizontal position by a vertical force that acts 1.41 m
from the pivot. The force is then removed, and the rod-and-ball
swings down.
(a) (4 points) What was the vertical force used to hold the
system...

A uniform rod of mass mr = 173 g and length L = 1... A uniform
rod of mass mr = 173 g and length L = 100.0 cm is attached to the
wall with a pin as shown. Cords are attached to the rod at the r1 =
10.0 cm and r2 = 90.0 cm mark, passed over pulleys, and masses of
m1 = 246 g and m2 = 127 g are attached. Your TA asks you to
determine...

The telescope at a small observatory has objective and eyepiece
focal lengths respectively of 18.2 m and 12 cm. If this telescope
is used to view a 2000 m diameter lunar crater on the surface of
the moon 3.77 108 m from the surface of the Earth, determine the
following.
(a) angular magnification of the telescope
(b) size of the first image ____ m
(c) length of the barrel of the telescope _____ m
(d) angle subtended at the unaided...
