An inventor comes up with an idea
for a perpetual motion machine, as illustrated in
Fig. 9.34. It
contains a sealed chamber with mercury (Hg) in one half and water
2
(H O)
in the other. A cylinder is mounted
in the center and is free to rotate. He reasons that since me
rcury is much denser than water (
3
13.6 g/cm
to
3
1.00 g/cm
), the weight of the mercury displaced by half the cylinder is much greater than the water displaced
by the other half. Then, the buoyant force on the mercury side i
s greater than that on the water side
—
more
than thirteen times greater. The difference in forces and torques should cause the cylinder to rotate
—
perpetually. Would you invest any money in this invention? Why or why not?

0 cc of blood from a patient and deposit it into a small plastic container whose
interior is at atmospheric pressure. He inserts the needle end of a long tube into a vein where the average
gauge pressure is 30.0 mm Hg. This allows the internal pressure in
the vein to push the blood into the
collection container. The needle is 0.900 mm in diameter and 2.54 cm long. The long tube is wide and smooth
enough that we can assume its resistance is negligible, and that all the resistance to blood flow occurs in the
narrow needle. How long does it take him to collect the sample?
