# AQA MM1B - Mechanics 1 -Tuesday 21st June 2016 Watch

1. (Original post by littleover13)
so did anyone else get 4 killometers for question 8? i got my mechanics teacher to check it and he said it was right. glad i got that one in the bag, easiest 10 marks in my life. dam the momentum question, who knew a ball could weigh 4 tonnes. feel sorry for people who got 106m for question 8, people forgot to square it. luckily i got my teacher to check this too, what a legend.
Hah

I did it exactly the same, but my answer came out to the 168N. I think I've pressed my calculator wrongly
How many marks will I drop? (((

Same I got 164N TO 3SF (around your answer) ... ffs this damn calculator doesn't do its job

Ano123 posted the numbers. Here it is:
A has an initial velocity 8i+4j and acceleration -0.2i+0.1j, started at origin.
B has an initial velocity 6i+9j and acceleration 0.2i-0.1j and started at position vector 40i+50j.
Find the distance between A and B when their velocities are parallel.
U legend i was trying to find this for a long time.

I got T = 12 for the 10 marker but around ~ 46.5 for the final distance
I also got T=12 but I subbed it into my position equations and did pythagoras between i and j differences to get about 105m

Attachment 554069 Question 7 well most of it
You can't do 16/1.7 because 1.7 was the time taken for the ball to hit the front edge, you had to rework out the time taken to be 1.9 as it would take longer to go further then do 16/1.9 etc

Ayy, I'm the legend.
And I know I am.

Hi can u tell me how were the marks allocated for question 7 for parts A b and C
8. Can someone post the solution to question 1 of the paper please

I hope you are joking... If not you are weak at math

Can someone post the solution to question 1 of the paper please
Part A=

momentum before collision= momentum after collision
therefore:
(3x6)-(2x8) = 5v (since the move together as 1 particle we can add their mass together)
therefore V=0.4 ms-1

Part B= (5x0.4)=(5+mass)x0.1
therefore mass of the stationary particle= 15kg

hope that helps
11. 4km? I doubt it it's supposed to be an air display.

12. For all those people crying about the last question, I too got it wrong as I used T=25 instead of T=5, but one thing it said in the question was that they are both on the SAME horizontal plane throughout their motion(same vertical distance apart), so if you're working out when they're parallel you don't have to piss around with all that gradient **** that you learn in C4, you simply have to work out when the vertical components for velocity are equal to one another (when t=5) and sub T=5 into your distance equation for both plane A and B and take them away from one another to get the distance between them, I might be wrong but the big misconception is that people failed to realise it stated that the planes stayed on their horizontal planes through
13. This is what I did

Thats a really nice layout u got there. too bad i had no clue what to do in the exam :/

you know, t wasn't 5..

Lower. About 53/54 if not lower. I found June 14 the same or easier in comparison.
Yeah me too actually, June 2014 was like 53 and that wasn't too challenging compared to a couple today
17. Hey guys, for the airplane question, I made an error and got the wrong value of wind speed in part 1. However I got the rest of the questions right (in terms of method), but will I get the error carried forward? It was 2 marks for the first question. For the last question, if I got the wrong value of T, but made the correct substitutions into R equations and correctly calculated displacement (again in terms of method), how many marks can I lose, providing working out is all there. Thanks in advanced.
18. The reason the football has to be modeled as a particle is not because of air resistance. This is because in the question they already tell you there's no air resistance, so whether or not the ball is a particle would therefore not cause air resistance.

I think the reason is because if the ball had size you would have to factor in the radius of the ball because the ball's edge would hit the box before the centre of mass arrived.
On top of this if the ball had size it it could rotate, this would have a gyroscopic effect and may affect the trajectory of its path.
If the ball had size there would be multiple answers for how long it takes the ball to hit the rim, because either side of the ball hitting the rim would give multiple answers.

Thanks XD. My working looked like shite in the exam lol
