Question 8 8. An adjustable nozzle is attached to a garden hose and the water is turned on. The nozzle can adjust so that the opening through which the water leaves gets smaller or bigger. As the opening is made smaller, the water leaves the hose more vigorously. This phenomenon is best described by which of the following principles?

Question 9 9. Which of the following scientists conducted an experiment that showed that the atom is mostly empty space with a small, dense, positively charged center?

Question 10 10. A truck driver with a mass of 85 kg is inside a truck traveling 10 m/s. Upon seeing a dog crossing the road, the truck driver slams on the brakes. The truck comes to a stop in 2.0 seconds. If the truck driver was wearing their seatbelt, what was the average force on the truck driver by the seatbelt during the 2.0 second interval?

Question 11 11. Hockey puck A is sliding along ice in the +x-direction with a speed of v, as shown in the figure. After colliding with an identical hockey puck B, which is initially at rest, hockey puck A moves in the +y-direction. Find the x component of B's velocity after the collision.
