    Maybe you can tell us the question and someone would be able to tell you how to iterpret the graph in relation to the question? A desc of the graph could be good too.

    10. a) Is the point the greyhound line crosses the x-axis as 0 is when the hare crosses the line.

    b) Do you use the formula a = (v-u) / t in SG physics? If so, try and use that formula to find the acceleration.

    Part a)

    Read the question carefully so you understand what is happening.

    It tells you that the greyhounds are released AFTER the hare crosses the start line. So the hare starts FIRST.

    It also tells you that the graph represents the motion when they CROSS THE START LINE.

    Therefore the hair starts at 0 seconds, as it is the graph of when the hare starts.

    IF you look closely, you can see that 0.5s later, the greyhounds start. Because each box represents 0.5seconds.

    Part b)

    We know that acceleration = v - u / t

    From the graph, we notice that the greyhound starts with a sloped line. This sloped line represents an increase in speed, so it represents the acceleration.

    V= Final speed, which if you look at the end of the sloped line, is 13m/s. ( as it becomes a straight line, this means the speed is now constant, so this is the final speed for our acceleration )

    u=Initial speed, which we can see from the graph is 0

    t= time, which is 6.5s, as if u look, from the start to the end of the sloped line, it is 6.5s

    So therefore.

    a= 13-0/6.5

    acceleration = 2m/s/s

    Part c)

    The question tells us that the hare crosses the finish line 20s after starting.

    to work out distance, we us d=vt.

    distance = ?

    v = speed , which we know is constantly 12m/s

    t= time, which we know is 20s

    so use d=vt

    d = 12 x 20
    d=240m.

    Hope that helps

    Part c)ii)

    You need to know how far the greyhound has travelled until 20s.



    To do this, work out the area under the greyhounds graph.

    So first work out the triangle, which is 13 x 6.5 / 2 = 42.25m



    Then work out the rest of the area.


    The difference from the start of the rectangle to the 20 is 13 seconds, therefore;

    13 x 13 = 169.

    169 + 42.25 = 211.25

    Hare - hound

    = 240 - 211.25
    = 28.75 / 29m



    Hopefully this helps..

    Please someone correct me if im wrong, i cant quite remember if this is right!

    You need to know how far the greyhound has travelled.

    To do this, work out the area under the greyhounds graph.

    So first work out the triangle, which is 13 x 6.5 / 2 = 42.25m

    The hare finishes 20s after it starts. The hound we shall messure of 19.5s. You must notice that the hound doesn't actually go anywhere for 0.5s. So after 20s it has ONLY MOVED for 19.5s. As it was stationary for the first 0.5s.

    We have already worked out the first 6.5s, so we take that away from our total journey time of 19.5s, and that gives us 14 seconds for the rest of the graph.


    Then work out the rest of the area.

    14 x 3 = 182.


    182 + 42.5 = 224.5

    Hare - hound

    = 240 - 224.5

    = 15.5m


    Basically, your working out the area under the graph , up until 20 seconds. So if your looking at the graph you will automatically notice that the time from where the graph starts ( 0.5 ) to where we are finishing ( 20 s ) the time is 19.5s


    Hopefully this is right... :O
    Thanks very much for answering much appreciated, the past papers don't tell you the working so its quite hard if you do not know what to do , but i have checked and your last answer is incorrect the answer states

    (cii) 28.75m or 29 m

    so i dont know if you can tell me how to get there

    Check it now.

    Because the picture was quite shady, i read from 6 to 20 instead of 7 to 20 !

    Look at it now
