1) C
F=ma, so you have a force of 30N acting 'up' and a force of mg (the bodies weight) acting down from the body.
The body's weight can be calculated using 4x9.81(gravity)= 39.24N.
If you think as 'up' as positive and 'down' as negative then the Total forces will be 30N+(39.24N)= 9.24N. Then simply using F=ma, 9.24=4xa...(a as it is accelerating downwards)
so a = 9.24/4 =2.31 so a = 2.31.
Therefore C is the answer
2) C
 if you have to supercool something to create a superconductor, it makes sense increasing the temperature would reduce it's ability to conduct
3)C
4)D
only transverse waves can be polarised
5) A
wavelength=speed of light in a vacuum/frequency= 3x10^8/1.4x10^6= 214.286.
As its minimum distance, must mean in the first harmonic: so L=1/2 wavelength, 214.286/2= 107.14m, so 107m rounded.
6) A
7) B.....I THINK not 100% sure on this one. wavelength = c/f = 30/150= 0.2m and 50mm = 0.05m, so 0.05/0.2= 0.25, which is 1/4 of a wavelength i.e 90 degrees
8) D KE=1/2mv^2 or half times momentum squared, so, if they have the same momentum they have to have the same KE
9)D, the electrons in the metal cannot absorb enough energy to break free of their bonds.
10)D the wavelength of microwaves are too large, so therefore their frequency and consequently their energy isn't large enough to excite ionise the neutral atom
11) C to refract along a boundary, the incident ray has to go from a less dense to a more dense medium i.e. from the glass to the liquid (1.5>1.6), the equation to calculate the critical angle is 0c= sin^1 (n1/n2)= sin ^(1.5/1.6)= 69.6=70 degrees
12) B NOT 100% sure on this one. to calculate the particle's total energy you need to work out it's gravitational potential energy from the top of the wall and add it to the kinetic energy it gains from being thrown so E(total)= GPE+KE=mgh+1/2mv^2= 0.4x9.81x5+1/2x0.4x6^2= 19.62J+7.2J=26.82J. Then, when it is on the ground it has no gravitational potential energy so, its energy on the ground will come purely from the kinetic energy so again it will be KE=1/2mv^2=1/2 x 0.4 x 10^2=20J. So the energy lost will be 26.8220= 6.82=6.8J
13) D
I= emf/R+r=6/12+3=0.4A . E=power x time= current x voltage(emf as it is within the cell) x time (in seconds)= 0.4 x 6 x 60=144JLast edited by MiDuly; 06052016 at 19:46.

can you pls explain about superconductivity?

(Original post by MiDuly)
Superconductivity is when a material has no resistivity, and therefore no resistance, this is achieved by lowering the temperature of/around the material to below it's critical temperature, which is usually very low and below 10K (263degrees).The benefits of superconductivity are that a current can be set up in a material WITHOUT a P.d and can continue flowing forever

2) C. Copper has a positive resistance thermal coefficient. i.e. resistance increases with temperature. Hence it's ability to conduct current must fall.
3) C. Hydrogen atom: 10^{9} > atom < 10^{12} (Answer C fits these limits)
