# M1 OCR (Not MEI) Exam - 9/06/2015 watch

1. (Original post by MsFahima)
Check the opening post please.. is there any other important tips I should add? Thanks!
I would definitely talk about these:

Taut/inextensible string means that tension is constant throughout the string.
ALWAYS remember to work in components (horizontal/vertical) (parallel/perpendicular) NEVER just start randomly adding forces together
Draw out the entire diagram, writing down everything you know
Don't make any assumptions!

I'll let you know if I think of any more And I didn't realise that you were putting links to all of the answers, that's a really good idea!!

Thanks! I'll add that to the opening post. They are some good points.

ah I see. So I shouldn't assume it will be the same as the previous part.

The next question is 4iia.
For the part above that I worked out the speed of L after the collision to be 1ms^-1.

It then says M collides with N. From looking at the mark scheme it changes back to using 2ms^-1. Why is that?
If you could explain that part it would be appreciated.

Thanks
(a) Find the total momentum of M and N in the direction of M’s motion before this collisiontakes place

Pay attention to the question! The direction of motion is always considered positive!

But isn't M going to the right now?
Because the collision of L and M has made it change direction?

If it was considering M as it was before surely they wouldn't collide?
5. Can anyone help me with the last part about the contact forces please as I don't understand the mark scheme

Yeah, M is going towards the right, but now its asking you to consider the motion AFTER the collision!
You can see this by the statement:

(ii) M then collides with N

Just think of the question in chronological order!

What paper is it?

EDIT: Basically, you have to get the resultant of the forces acting on the particle. So when P is in motion, the resultant of Fr and R would be the contact force acting on it. And when the particle is stationary, the only component is mg. And you have to find the angle at which it is from the plane. That's what I've understood from the mark scheme.

oh ffs, I read the question wrong. It says M's speed remains at 2ms^-1. That makes sense now
Thanks

How do I do 5iii?

I did it using SUVAT, because we can find the u, and know a and t.
Just consider the segment from t=4 to t=7, first.

s= ?
u= 0.9(42) = 14.4
v=
a= 7.2
t= 3

then you can work that out from there, right? Just solve for s, then add it onto the total displacement for t=0 to t=4.

My initial guess would be that it's just 0.6gsin30. If that's right, I'd be happy to explain it! Could you let me know the answer if it isn't, btw

ah I see. I'll probably be back later. Thanks for the help

Hmmm, that's weird..

So, I get that the mark scheme has found the vertical component (weight) and the fact that it's 60 degrees from the slope, but how does that answer the question they asked? Contact forces are always perpendicular to the surface, right?? I'm confused haha

No problem!

Yeah, that's what I though but I guess they're asking for the magnitude. And there isn't any videos explaining it as well ...

Ok, I'm going to work through the problem and perhaps I'll come back with an explanation in about 5 mins *fingers crossed*

Sure! I did the first part.. it was fine. I'm not sure about that second part.. Tell me if you figure it out!

Are you guys doing C3/C4?

I am. You?

Yup. How is revision going for them?
