[T] A mechanic uses a 12-in. wrench to turn a bolt. The wrench makes a 30 ° angle with the horizontal. If the mechanic applies a vertical force of 10 lb on the wrench handle, what is the magnitude of the torque at point P (see the following figure)? Express the answer in foot-pounds rounded to two decimal places.

This figure is the image of an open-end wrench. The lower portion of the wrench is at point P. The wrench has a length of “12 I n.” The angle the wrench makes with a horizontal line from P is 30 degrees. At the top of the wrench is a downward vertical vector labeled “10 l b.”

[T] Consider r ( t ) = cos t , sin t , 2 t the position vector of a particle at time t [ 0 , 30 ] , where the components of r are expressed in centimeters and time in seconds. Let O P be the position vector of the particle after 1 sec.

  1. Determine unit vector B ( t ) (called the binormal unit vector ) that has the direction of cross product vector v ( t ) × a ( t ) , where v ( t ) and a ( t ) are the instantaneous velocity vector and, respectively, the acceleration vector of the particle after t seconds.
  2. Use a CAS to visualize vectors v ( 1 ) , a ( 1 ) , and B ( 1 ) as vectors starting at point P along with the path of the particle.

This figure is the first octant of the 3-dimensional coordinate system. There is a curve sketched that is increasing. On the curve is a point labeled “P.” At P there is a tangent vector to the curve labeled “v(1).” Also from P there is a vector towards the inside of the curve labeled “a(1).” Finally, there is a vector from P labeled “B(1)” pointing towards the z-axis.

A solar panel is mounted on the roof of a house. The panel may be regarded as positioned at the points of coordinates (in meters) A ( 8 , 0 , 0 ) , B ( 8 , 18 , 0 ) , C ( 0 , 18 , 8 ) , and D ( 0 , 0 , 8 ) (see the following figure).

This figure shows a rectangular set of solar panels on a roof. The corners are labeled “A, B, C, D.” Also there is a vector drawn from A to D. There is another vector along the bottom of the rectangle from A to B.
  1. Find vector n = A B × A D perpendicular to the surface of the solar panels. Express the answer using standard unit vectors.
  2. Assume unit vector s = 1 3 i + 1 3 j + 1 3 k points toward the Sun at a particular time of the day and the flow of solar energy is F = 900 s (in watts per square meter [ W/m 2 ]). Find the predicted amount of electrical power the panel can produce, which is given by the dot product of vectors F and n (expressed in watts).
  3. Determine the angle of elevation of the Sun above the solar panel. Express the answer in degrees rounded to the nearest whole number. ( Hint : The angle between vectors n and s and the angle of elevation are complementary.)
