What did everyone think of the paper? I wasn't sure about the ice rink question or the 14000N rope question when the car has a weight of 12000N ( can't remember the exact numbers)
Thanks

Easiest paper I have done in my life, I will get 100% raw marks, as per usual.

Ikr! What did you get for current? Calculation. .

The rope has 12000N

Whilst the car has 14000N.

For the car and rope one I said it wouldn't snap because weight is a vertical force, the only thing which would affect the tension of the rope would be a horizontal force like the drag of the car.

5.83 or 7.83 I think.

I wrote it will snap because as the velocity is constant, the car is pulling the truck back by its drag by 14000N. Thus the truck will have exert a equal but opposite force and thus the truck will have 14000N to opposite direction. The rope will break as tension is applied because it has a force of 12000N.

It wad 7.7.... round it up to 7 8

This will mean that tension will applied to the rope and will split as it has less force then both the directions of the car (drag) and truck.

Dunno I guessed that one.

I'm not sure, I asked my teacher about it and told him my answer and he said I was correct? I could be wrong though.

If the velocity is constant and all forces are in balance then surely the rope can't snap? It will only snap if there's a resultant force, no?

The rope will not snap. It will be able to tow the car. I had a 5.83 answer somewhere.

5.8? For what. .

It was 7.8

I can't remember if the question was how long did it take for the acceleration to take. It was something like 20-13/something. What was the current question?

It was rearranging the acceleration formula

T= 20-13 × (... I forgot.

Current =power/voltage

It was 7.8

20-13/T = 1.2 right?

Yep. 1.2 = 20-13/T so 1.2 x t = 20-13. 20-13/1.2 = T. T = 5.83

I don't remember doing that or getting that answer.

Most people rearranged the acceleration formula (v-u/t) to make t the object.

T= v-u × A

Posted from TSR Mobile

A = v-u/T. You can't just do A x v-u because v-u isn't dividing - it is being divided. Therefore, its reciprocal is not to just multiply it out.
The numbers were 1.2 = 20-13/T. Using your method T would = 8.4. Insert it into the first equation (A = v-u/t). 1.2=7/8.4. It doesn't work.
