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

## 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.

## Scalar magnitude only

Vector magnitude and direction

## 10 N (+5%) in the direction of

37 (+5%) (or 53 (+5%)) degrees from
vertical or 53 (or 37) degrees from
horizontal

## 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

Forces & direction labeled correctly
5.8 N to 6.0 N
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.

## Make the statement: ma = N W

N = ma + mg

## 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.
