dont get how pV is constant in the graph???

A car of mass 1000kg is travelling at a velocity of 10ms-1. It accelerates for 15s, reaching a velocity of 24ms-1. Calculate:
a) The change in momentum of the car in a period of 10s
b) The average force acting on the car as it accelerates

I can get part b, i get 930N just putting numbers into equation F=m(v-u/t) but part a i cant get :L any help would be much appreciated
I saw that the answer is 1.4x10^4

Change in momentum = mv-mu

(1000*24)-(1000*10) = 1.4x10^4

Edit: I accept that this doesn't incorporate the time but that's my best idea

Well it seems unlikely that there'd be a mistake (I saw this with a pinch of salt as our textbook is littered with errors).

What? That makes no sense...

why does a liquid have a generally higher specific heat capacity than solid?
Because for a solid to change state into a liquid, only a few bonds need to be broken between the atoms (less energy is required). However, for a liquid to change state into a gas, all of the bonds need to be broken so that the atoms are completely unconnected from each other (more energy is required).

At least I think that is correct.

Edit: Regarding the question above, that is an error in the book according to my teacher when we went through it.
8. i don't see boyle's law or charles' law EXPERIMENT on the spec, do we really need to know the methods?
i can't even see charles' law written anywhere on the spec
9. "select and use x = A cos(2 π ft ) or x = A sin(2 π ft ) as solutions to the equation a = – (2 π f ) 2 x" From the spec. What do they mean??

I don't think so either. There won't be a question simply asking you to describe an experiment to demonstrate either of the laws, but they might have set up an apparatus and you may need to make comments using the knowledge of the law/ideal gases. For example, in January there was a question on the paper about how frequency and mass relate in a SHM experiment, which isn't on the spec but you have to apply what you know about SHM to answer it (if that makes any sense!)

You use the sin equation when displacement begins at equilibrium position (on time axis on a displacement against time graph). You use the cos equation when it begins at the point furthest from equilibrium (the amplitude).

I would agree with the other posters and say that the change in momentum in total = (1000*24)-(1000*10) = 14000 and, as that's the total over 15s, assuming uniform acceleration the change in momentum after 10s would be (10/15)*(14000) = 9333kgms^-1

The two experiments we have to be able to describe are the 'Brownian motion' one and the 'Electrical determination of the specific heat capacity of a solid or liquid'.
14. Bring on the exam hopefully ill get an A

How did you find it? I was pretty happy with it overall.

<br />what is yiur answer for the final ques
18. I got 1.5 x10^7...
19. Question four... the bane of the paper for me. Literally spent 20 minutes thinking it through and still didn't get it damm ):
