    But on the question it specifies that it is perpendicular?
    Yes, so the point on the path that you are thinking of is not the one you want.

    Options:

    Draw a couple of triangles with the same angle in them, using the perpendicular idea then use trig.

    Write down 2 column vectors for the velocities, with an unknown (downwards) component for the one you want and say that the dot product is 0.

    Use the equation of the path and use perpendicular gradients: m1 x m2 = - 1

    Thank you, using the dot product worked for me. I guess I was visualising it in a different way

    Can all questions be solved using moments and resolving up/down ? Or is it necessary to sometimes use triangle of forces?
    The way i have been taught it is possible to solve without triangle of forces - i have never come across a question where i have had to do that

    Anyone can help me with a few questions???

    1. A ball is dropped from 0 velocity and after falling for 1s under gravity meets another equal ball which is moving upwards at 7ms-1
    a. Calculate the velocity of each ball immediately after the impact given that the coefficient of restitution is 0.25.

    the angle(a) is represented by tan a = 0.5

    AB weighs 400N. The weight (circle) weights 200N. The apparatus remains in equlibirum. AB is modelled as a road and BC as light inextensible cable.
    Find the tension in AB.

    2 eqns, solve simultaneously.
    1. conservation of momentum
    eg 7m - 9.8m = mv1 + mv2
    2. 0.25 = v2-v1/(16.8)
    Then solve

    I hope you find this very useful as a directory for resources and a help desk for any questions about M2 homework, the exam and last minute tips! There are some extremely able people on here, who will be very happy to help - use this to your advantage!

    Exam Date
    Friday 17th June 2016 pm - 90mins

    Exam Info/Guidance
    M2 is a step up from M1 - although some of the topics are the same, it is more complicated and it's easy to make small mistakes that can cost you marks that you may not be able to afford to lose.
    The topics are listed as follows:
    Kinematics
    Centres of Mass
    Work, Energy and Power
    Collisions
    Statics of rigid bodies

    Resources
    Exam solutions videos for M2
    Edexcel A-level Maths section
    Various M2 resources
    MyMaths
    MrBartonMaths Applied Module stuff

    Hopefully this thread has enough resources to help you gain top marks, and enough questions to last a lifetime. If you ever (unlikely) or think you will run out of questions, buy some really old textbooks off Amazon for 1p and you will hopefully never run out of questions.


    Good Luck!

    how to do june 2005, question 7b?
    The gain in K.E + work done against friction = Loss in P.E
    (I have written it in these terms, because if you think about it, the KE has not gained as much as it would do on a smooth surface, so that difference must be the work done against friction)
    The number crunching is now straightforward.
    K.E = 1/2mv^2 = 0.5*3*5^2 = 37.5
    P.E = 12g from part a)
    Work done = F*d = 8F
    so 12g - 37.5 = 8F (rearranging above)
    F = 10N

    Getting really confused with this question, any help would be sick!

    When in the mark scheme it says Dist of G from DC, I get a positive answer meaning that G must be below DC. Yet I dont I dont understand why doubling it results in O from DC? Surely thats double the required distance??

    Not sure I like the mark scheme
    if you consider the vertical components of the centres of mass of the 3 shapes you get:
    Square + rest of triangle = Whole triangle
    16 * y component of O + (32 * 6.43) = 48 * 6
    Note 6.43 comes from tan 25 in mark scheme
    Then rearrange to find y comp of ) = 5.14
    So centre is 0.86 from DC

    Thanks, that's a much better method
