8. Velocity is related to acceleration and distance by the following expression: v 2 = 2ax p . Find the power p that makes this equation dimensionally consistent. 12. The time T required for one complete oscillation of a mass m on a spring of force constant k is

T = 2

m . k

An electronic advertising sign repeats a message every 7 seconds, day and night, for a week. How many times did the message appear on the sign? 26. The Star of Africa The Star of Africa, a diamond in the royal scepter of the British crown jewels, has a mass of 530.2 carats, where 1 carat = 0.20 g. Given that 1 kg has an approximate weight of 2.21 lb, what is the weight of this diamond in pounds? 29. BIO Woodpecker Impact When red-headed woodpeckers (Melanerpes erythrocephalus) strike the trunk of a tree, they can experience an acceleration ten times greater than the acceleration of gravity, or about 98.1 m/s2. What is this acceleration in ft/s2? 32. Suppose 1.0 cubic meter of oil is spilled into the ocean. Find the area of the resulting slick, assuming that it is one molecule thick, and that each molecule occupies a cube 0.50 m on a side. 45. Ten and Ten When Coast Guard pararescue jumpers leap from a helicopter to save a person in the water, they like to jump when the helicopter is flying "ten and ten," which means it is 10 feet above the water and moving forward with a speed of 10 knots. What is

"ten and ten" in SI units? (A knot is one nautical mile per hour, where a nautical mile is 1.852 km.) 47. BIO Human Nerve Fibers Type A nerve fiber in humans can conduct nerve impulses at speed up to 140 m/s . (a) How fast are the nerve impulses in miles per hour? (b) How far (in meters) can the impulses travel in 5.0 ms? 50. Acceleration is related to velocity and time by the following expression: a = v p t q . Find the powers p and q that make this equation dimensionally consistent.
