Answer

Remarks

Major misconceptions: Ohm


and Newton are NOT base
units.

Major misconceptions: Free


Body diagram not drawn
properly, cannot set up
equation of motion to solve for
answer.

Major misconception: Could


not identify the Newtons 3rd
Law pair of forces.

If units are not indicated, subtract 1 mark overall for each mistake made.
If s.f. are not reported correctly (2 or 3 s.f.), subtract 1 mark overall.

Suggested Answer

1(a)

Scalar magnitude only


Vector magnitude and direction

1(b)

10 N (+5%) in the direction of


37 (+5%) (or 53 (+5%)) degrees from
vertical or 53 (or 37) degrees from
horizontal
Correct parallelogram OR tip to tail

3 (a)

Ball is falling towards the ground with


increasing velocity / speed /
constant acceleration

B1

3 (b)

The area above the AB graph is greater

Remarks

B1

Cannot identify the area under

than the area under the CD graph

a v-t graph can show the


distance travelled.

3 (c) (i)

| Vf-Vi | = |5.0 5.3| = 0.3 (accept 0.2) m/s

B1

Values are read wrongly.

3 (c) (ii)

Vf Vi = 5.0 (5.3) = 10.3 (accept 10.2)


m/s

B1

Values are read wrongly.

3 (c) (iii)

Change in velocity / time taken = 10.3 /

0.05 = 206 m s .
(accept 204, accept answers without units)

B1

Values are read wrongly. The


gradient of a v-t graph gives the
acceleration.

Draw the forces on the nail correctly


Draw the forces on the frame correctly

5 (a)

Mass measure of the amount of


substance in a body
Inertia Mass of a body is the property that
resists a change in the state of rest or
motion.
Gravitational Mass of a body is the
property of matter that creates and
responds to gravitational forces.

Weight force on the object due to gravity

W and N arrows are drawn correctly


N is drawn longer than W

-2

Cannot draw the forces at the


appropriate places and the length of
the arrows are not proportional to
the magnitude.

Cannot set up the equation of


motion (Fnet = ma).

Conceptual: Acceleration is
the gradient of a v-t graph.
Not reading off a v-t graph.

6(a)(iv)

After the speed increases, the air


resistance/drag increases because Fd=k.v,
where k is a constant.
The net force and hence net acceleration
decreases.

At a point where Fd=W, the parachutist


falls at a constant velocity

6(b)(i)

The parachute canopy is bigger, air


resistance increases and the parachutist
falls at a lower speed.

Need to understand that the a-t


graph is the gradient of the v-t
graph.
