1. Can anyone do this momentum/impulse question?

The mark scheme shows:

33/5mu = 2m(-v--4u)

I don't get how they've got both the 4u and the v as negative since the question States P is moving due east?

I can't make sense of it

when its parallel to i, the sum of the J components will be 0.

look at how you work out its current position r=r0+vt

then set the J component of the right hand side of that equation to 0, solve for t
I dont understand what you do sorry. What do you o with the v
3. Can anyone help me with this question on vectors

Question 3, if I find W first then use it to calculate R, will I still get full marks, because the mark scheme says not.
Zacken
Is this true? :/ I assume you'd want to calculate W to find R ...
5. In our working out do we need to show the steps to solve quadratic equations or can we just our calculator to get the answer for it

Okay tell me which part you dont understand out of these steps...

r= (5-3t)i + (t-3)j

When moving parallel, it has to be moving directly right or left, for example, (5i 0j)

so the j component must equal zero

t-3 = 0
t=3 when moving parallel

Uhhhhh, I just spent like 10 minutes trying to see how you can do it without doing part ii first and I just checked the mark scheme... It doesn't say anywhere that you can't find W first?????????

Use the formula - velocity = speed x direction x (1/magnitude of direction) then use r=ro + vt

Best to show how you got the answer (whether that be by factorisation, completing the square or quadratic formula).

No, lol, of course you'd get the marks...

You'll get the marks if you find W first.

part a) suvat
s=h
A=-9.8
t=5
u=20

partb)
Find V using suvat for the first ball
You can now work out 3/4 v for the second ball
Do suvat with v=3/4V, u=w, a=9.8, s= height found from part a
thanks

Yeah, the OP claimed that the mark scheme would not allow you to find W first before finding R :P
16. What happens when it says 'when C is at the point of tilting'??

the reaction at the other support (not c) is zero

Yeah P is moving due east but it can be convinced to move due west with enough force from Q right..

They set west as the positive direction, you can set east as positivw direction and you'd get the same answer
