17. A supersonic aircraft produces a shock wave that describes a 30o angle. What happens to the angle of the cone as the aircraft travels faster?
18. A 2.0-ohm resistor is connected in a series with a 20.0 -V battery and a three-branch parallel network with branches whose resistance are 8.0 ohms each. Ignoring the battery’s internal resistance, what is the current in the batter? Show your work.
19. Gas A is composed of diatomic molecules (two atoms to a molecule) of a pure element. Gas B is composed of monoatomic molecules (one atom to a molecule) of another pure element. Gas A has three times the mass of an equal volume of gas B at the same temperature and pressure. How do the atomic masses of elements A and B compare?
20. Consider a model steel bridge that is 1/100 the exact scale of the real bridge that is to be built.
1. If the model bridge weighs 50 N, what will the real bridge weigh?
2. If the model bridge does not appear to sag under its own weight, is this evidence the real bridge, built exactly to scale, will not appear to sag either?
21. Calculate the water pressure in the pipes at the bottom of a high-rise building that is fed by reservoir 60 m above the roof top.
22. The atmosphere does not ordinarily crush cans. However, it will crush a can after it has been heated, capped, and cooled. Explain why this happens. Be sure to use complete sentences

Directions:It is important that you provide answers in your own words. Please focus only on
information from the text/eBook to create your own solutions. Please do not use direct
information from an outside source (especially copying and pasting from an “answer” website).
Use of direct information from an outside source is against school policy. All answers will be
checked for plagiarism. Instances of plagiarismcan result in probation or possible dismissal
from the school.
Grading: Please be sure to follow all guidelines (number of sentences/showing all calculations)
and to provide the correct metric units of measure. All questions are 5 points. You MUST
For any math based questions you must show all your work and explain any numbers that are
not clearly understood by the problem. There is a formula sheet for you to use at the end of the
exam.
1. How is electric potential energy similar to gravitational potential energy? How is it
different? Where will an electron bound in an atom and have the largest electrical
potential energy?
Electric potential energy and gravitational potential energy are energies of position. This
means that they rely on the positioning of the charge or mass. Their difference is that
electric potential energy is depended on charge while gravitational potential energy,
mass. Relative to the nucleus, the electron that is farthest will have the largest electrical
potential energy

2. What is a transformer? Explain how a transformer works including specific details
on step up and step down transformers.
A transformer is a device that raises or lowers the voltage of alternative current. Due to
the magnetic flux formed when coils carrying alternating current at close to each other,
the number of turns on the primary or secondary windings determines the output voltage.
The Step up transformer has more secondary windings than the primary ones therefore
the voltage output is greater. The step down transformer has few turns in the secondary
winding and t...

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable. Brown University
