    Wait... i got like 1.44s on the last question

    views on that?
    The quadratic retrieved two values 1.34 and 7.67 me thinks

    i got 7/0.4= 17.5
    wasnt it like (0, something, 17.5)

    what if you usedf v=u+at is that wrong? to get 3.5s

    1.34 or 1.44 cant remember....but it could only be one time so you use the -b+the root

    7.67 seems a little long tho

    i think

    Except you don't know v? I think that's where u may have slipped. We do know s though

    (btw i got it wrong so maybe lost 2-3 marks :P)

    Last Question:
    Only force acting down was gravity, where a = -gsin15
    The inital velocity is 8 and the inital displacement is 13.
    Hence v = -gtsin15 + 8
    And s = -0.5gt²sin15 + 8t + 13
    Set s = 0 to get t = -1.34025 or t = 7.64833
    As t must be positive, the time is 7.65 seconds.

    was the sledge being pushed up or down the slope?

    thing is isnt v=0 as it goes down the slope so it must come to rest?

    How did you answer that vector equation?
    I think I did r-p-q-weight=ma
    Weight being vector (0,-4,0) :/

    What direction did you put.

    i added all the forces and got (0,0,7) so magnitude = 7newtons=ma

    i did that but i used v=u+at to find the time would that be wrong? because v=0 u=8 a=2.5 and t=? so rearrange and i got -3.2s so 3.2 s
    well firstly the accelaration and velocity would be in different directions so at least one must be negative...
    and also that equation wouldnt work out how long it took to the bottom it would work outhow long it would take to reach v=0 at the top of the slope not at the bottom of the slope...

    NONONO there was definitely a negative in the quadratic somewhere

    yeah weight was defo that vector.

    aff em all together and divide by 0.4

    Why is weight not (0,0,4)?

    first we addd all the forces to get the resultant. as vectors have direction and mag you just add. then =ma

    Yeah but mg in this case is 0.4x(0,0,10), no?

    I don't get why they are added together....I thought cuz r had the biggest magnitude, you take them all away from r. I think I've screwed that question up aswell T.T

    True. Am not sure tbh. I normally always take it in the j direction but could be wrong
