Problem 19P

Problem

Aflat puck (mass M) is revolved in a circle on a frictionless air hockey table top, and is held in this orbit by a massless cord which is connected to a dangling mass (mass m) through a central hole as shown in Fig. 5-46.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Geo. Ch. 6  Sedimentary rocks­ rocks formed near or at the surface of Earth by cementing together loose grained that have been produced by: 1. Physical or chemical weathering of pre­existing rocks 2. Precipitation of minerals from water 3. Growth of masses of shell­producing organisms  What is weathering The process of forming sediment  Also, the physical breakdown and chemical alteration of rock at Earth’s surface  Parent material: rock being weathered  Types of weathering:  Physical: without altering the chemical composition of the rocks  Chemical: chemical reactions occur that change he composition of the rock  Physical Weathering is the breaking of rocks into smaller pieces  How does this happen  Frost wedging­ expansion of water in cracks by freezing, wedging the rock apart  Unloading­ rocks expand and fracture in large sheet­like layers  Thermal expansion and contraction­ heating/cooling of a rock’s surface  Biological activity­ cracking and expansion of rocks  Chemical Weathering is when air and water chemically react with rock to alter its composition and mineral content. Includes dissolution, hydrolysis, and oxidation  Dissolution­ the dissociation of a mineral into its constituent ions as it dissolves in water  Hydrolysis­ water reacts with a mineral to form a new mineral with water as a part of the crystal structure  Oxidation­ the chemical reaction of a mineral with molecular oxygen  Factors affecting Rates of Weathering: 1. Surface area­ fractures in rock 2. Rock composition­ calcite dissolves in weekly acidic solutions 3. Climate­ chemical weathering most effective in warm, moist climates  Greater surface area= faster weathering because more of the rock is exposed  What happens with the rocks that have been weathered 1. Stay at surface, evolve and change into soils 2. Get buried and change into sedimentary rocks  Soil­ a combination of rock or sediment that has been modified by physical/chemical weathering; AND has reacted with organic matter from plants and animals remains and forms humus *Humus is the most important substrate in soil that supports the growth of plants  Sedimentary Rocks­ when weathered material becomes stuck together, the material is laid out into layers and buried  Five steps in forming sedimentary rocks: 1. Weathering­physical breakdown and chemical alteration of rock at Earth’s surface 2. Erosion­ soil and rock are removed from earth’s surface by wind, water flow, ice 3. Transportation 4. Deposition 5. Lithification­ the deposited material compacts into and entity  Four groups sedimentary rocks based on their origin: 1. Clastic sedimentary rocks *ex­ sandstone 2. Biochemical sedimentary rocks *ex­chert 3. Organic sedimentary rocks *ex­limestone 4. Chemical sedimentary rocks  Sediment structures are the places where the sediments/rocks were transported to and laid into layers *Examples­ Bedding planes, cross­bedding, ripple marks, and mud cracks Definitions: 1. Bed­ a single layer of sediment with a recognizable top and bottom 2. Bedding plane­ the boundary between two beds 3. Strata­ several beds together 4. Stratification­ the overall arrangement of sediment into a sequence of beds 5. Stratigraphic formation­ sequence of strata that is distinctive enough to be traced across a large area 6. Geologic map­ shows distributions of formations
