    7. a) v = root(gl/2)
    b) 5l/6
    I think your answer to 7(b) is correct. Several other people in my school got that as well. Can you explain how you did that please?

    Two elastic string, both attached to a particle of 2 kg in the middle. AB (end of string) = 1.5m.

    a) find speed when it has fallen 1m from rest
    b) prove [email protected] + [email protected] = 5

    my answers (not sure which bits of questions they are)...

    1. 2.4
    2. 45a/112, 1/8
    3. pi (oh dear lol), 5.44
    4. 2a,
    5. 7/rt15, couldn't do the show that
    6. 2<t<5, 39, 6.98
    7. rt(gl/2), 5l/6

    most seem the same as others on the thread which is good. Just quations 2 and 3 and the show that. Thought that show that was horrible anyone want to show me how to do it? Also how did you get k=2/7?

    I had something like [email protected] - [email protected] = 0.15

    It took me 5 mins to work out I had to multiply through by [email protected]

    You were given the centre of mass of the whole object. You knew the centre of mass of the bowl from the previous question. Then you just drew out the table.

    Sum of (mass x y) = sum of masses x y-bar

    You think it took you a long time?

    I gave up on it and only went back to it after I couldn't do Q7b. Then it hit me, what if I write [email protected] as [email protected]/[email protected], aha!

    Can anyone describe how they got 5l/6 for Q7b? I got completely lost there.
