    Hi guys i posted my maths related questions in the maths forum, these are my physics ones. If anyone could help me out it would be much appreciated.

    https://www.undergraduate.study.cam....paper_2016.pdf

    Question 14:

    Worked out tension in rope as 54N. Unsure as to why the answer is double.

    Actual Answer: H

    Question 52:

    So i equated the change in momentum of the spacecraft and the momentum of the fuel. By rearranging and solving i got the mass of fuel as 4000/19 kg, which i approximated as 200kg, which is E.

    However i also put 4000/19 into my calculator and the answer was 210kg which was F. I am not meant to be using calculators for this section and so i was wondering if i have gone wrong somewhere.

    Actual Answer: E


    Thanks in advance.

    14 is asking about the coupling supporting the pulley.

    if you ignore the acceleration and look at it as a static problem first, you can see that there's 50N tension in the left rope and 50N tension in the right rope... so the coupling has to take 100N before you even start increasing the tension by accelerating the mass.

    dunno if you're misreading the question or just not familiar with thinking about pulley systems tbh.

    Im just struggling to picture the direction of the tension in each branch.

    Does this diagram show the tension forces correctly? I dont know if im making it more complicated than it is.


    UPDATE: DONT WORRY IM A SPECIAL KIND OF SPECIAL I KNOW WHAT U ARE ON ABOUT😅

    Just in case, you had not had an explanation for the answer for Q52.



    Assume that the spacecraft is moving to the right relative to the earth, so the fuel is ejected to the left relative to the spacecraft.

    As the fuel is ejected to the left at 1425 m/s relative to the spacecraft, the fuel is moving at (7425 – 1425 =) 6000 m/s to the right relative to the earth.

    mi is the mass of spacecraft

    Δm is the mass of fuel ejected

    vi is the initial velocity of the spacecraft relative to earth (+7425 m/s)

    vf is the final velocity of the spacecraft relative to earth (+7500 m/s)

    uf is the final velocity of the spacecraft relative to earth (+6000 m/s)

    Initial linear momentum = mivi

    Final linear momentum = (mi – Δm)vf + Δm uf

    mivi = (mi – Δm)vf + Δm uf

    Δm vf – Δm uf = mivfmivi

    Δm = 200 kg

    You can also use the relative change in the speed of the spacecraft and the relative speed of fuel ejected to solve the problem in an elegant way.

    I did the change in momentum of the rocket equals the change in momentum of the fuel and solve for the mass of the fuel, which gave me the correct answer.

    Integrate with respect to y to get the area enclosed by the curve and y axis.

    Remember to make x=0 to find ur limits for the integration.

    Haha I did that paper two but couldn't finish the whole thing within the time limit so got about 73% but I continued doing it and ended up getting all of them correct according to the answer key- yea we got the same sort of working for the last Q

    For the section two i got 15/24 in timed conditions, completely ballsed up section 1 tho, ran out of time.

    So tomorrow im gonna goas fast as Usain

    I redone both the specimen paper and last years first paper and somehow got over 90% on both I had to go through them very quickly
