1. Which of the following shown in the figure will cause current flow in the wire loop?

2. Under which of the following conditions would it be appropriate to neglect the gravitational force on a charge in a magnetic field?


A child playing with two magnets places them close together and holds them in place to keep them from moving, as shown in the figure. Magnet A has a larger magnetic field and a larger mass than magnet B. What will happen when the magnets are released and free to move?


A charge +Q is positioned close to a bar magnet as shown in the figure. If the charge is experiencing a force into the page, which way must the charge be moving?


You were absent when your AP Physics 2 class performed a lens lab. When you return to school, the teacher says to get the data from a friend and complete the assignment of calculating the focal length of the lens used in the lab. Your friend hands you the graph shown in the figure where do and di are the object and image distances. Which of the following is equal to the focal length of the lens?

6. A scientist is using an electron microscope to study the structure of viruses ranging in size from 20 to 300 nm. The scientist must adjust the accelerating potential of the microscope to create an electron of the proper speed and wavelength to produce a detailed image of the virus. Which of the following graphs best depicts the relationship between accelerating voltage and the wavelength of the electrons?


A photon of wavelength λ collides with a stationary electron glancing off at an angle of θ, while the electron moves off with an angle of φ measured from the original path of the photon as shown in the figure. Which of the following statements correctly states the effect on the wavelength of the scattered photon and why?


A mass is fixed to the top of a Styrofoam block that floats in a container of water. The mass is large enough to make the water line flush with the top of the Styrofoam as shown in the figure. What will happen if the Styrofoam is inverted so that the mass is now suspended under the block?


Three beakers of different sizes are filled with water as shown. Each beaker has a rubber stopper of the identical size and shape fitted to a drain hole in the side. Which correctly ranks the force applied to the stoppers by the water?

10. A person can stand outside on a cold day for hours without ill effect, but falling into a cold lake can kill a person in a matter of minutes. Which of the following is the primary reason for this phenomenon?
