2018 - November - Paper 1 - Question 3

3.1

Downwards.check

The only force acting on the object is the gravitational force/weight which acts downwards.check

Or

The only force acting is gravitational/weight.check

Or

Gravitational force/weight acts downwards.check

Or

The ball is in free fall.check

Or

(Gravitational) acceleration is downwards.check

light bulb Tip: when an object is in free fall, regardless of whether it is moving upward or downward in motion, the only force acting on the object is the force of gravity which acts downwards.

Option 1

Upwards as positive

v_{f}=v_{i}+a\Delta tcheck

0=7,5+(-9,8)\Delta tcheck

\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,77\mathrm{~s}check

Or

Downwards as positive

v_{f}=v_{i}+a\Delta tcheck

0=-7,5+(-9,8)\Delta tcheck

\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,77\mathrm{~s}check

light bulb Tips:

  • The velocity of the ball at the highest point in its motion, when it is thrown upwards is always zero.
  • Remember, that all velocities as well as accelerations are vector quantities and, therefore, require directions.

Option 1

Upwards as positive

At the highest point vf is zero:

\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{f}}^2=\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{i}}^2+2\mathrm{a}\Delta\mathrm{y}check

0=(7,5)^2+(2)(-9,8)\Delta ycheck

\Delta y=2,87(2,869)mcheck

This is higher than the height needed to reach point T (2,1 m) therefore the ball will pass point T.checkcheck

Or

Downwards as positive

At the highest point vf is zero:

\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{f}}^2=\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{i}}^2+2\mathrm{a}\Delta\mathrm{y}check

0=(-7,5)^2+(2)(-9,8)\Delta ycheck

\Delta y=-2,87(-2,869)mcheck

This is higher than the height needed to reach point T (2,1 m) therefore the ball will pass point T.checkcheck

light bulb Tips: 

  • When bulleted things are listed to be indicated on a graph, these must be shown as this is usually how the marks are allocated, and if any of the requirements are left out, you will lose marks.
  • Since the motion is free fall, the gradient of the line will be constant and equal to 9,8 m·s-2.

Option 2

Upwards as positive:

\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{f}}^2=\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{i}}^2+2\mathrm{a}\Delta\mathrm{y}

0=(7,5)^2+(2)(-9,8)\Delta y

\Delta y=2,87(2,869)m

\Delta\mathrm{y}=\left(\frac{\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{i}}+\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{f}}}{2}\right)\Delta\mathrm{t}

2,87=\frac{7,5+0}{2}\Delta t

\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,77\mathrm{~s}


Or

Downwards as positive:

v_{f}^2=v_{i}^2+2a\Delta y

0=(-7,5)^2+(2)(9,8)\Delta y

\Delta y=-2,87(-2,869)m

\Delta\mathrm{y}=\left(\frac{\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{i}}+\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{f}}}{2}\right)\Delta\mathrm{t}

-2,87=\frac{-7,5+0}{2}\Delta t

\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,77\mathrm{~s}


Or

Option 3

Upwards as positive:

F_{net}\Delta t=m\left(v_{f}-v_{i}\right)

mg\Delta t=m\left(v_{f}-v_{i}\right)

(-9,8)\Delta t=0-7,5

\therefore\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,76531\mathrm{~s}(0,77\mathrm{~s})


Or

Downwards as positive:

F_{net}\Delta t=m\left(v_{f}-v_{i}\right)

mg\Delta t=m\left(v_{f}-v_{i}\right)

(9,8)\Delta t=0-(-7,5)

\therefore\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,76531\mathrm{~s}(0,77\mathrm{~s})


Or

Option 4

Upwards as positive:

v_{f}=v_{i}+a\Delta t

-7,5=0+(-9,8)\Delta t

\therefore\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,76531\mathrm{~s}(0,77\mathrm{~s})


Or

Downwards as positive:

v_{f}=v_{i}+\Delta t

7,5=0+(9,8)\Delta t

\therefore\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,76531\mathrm{~s}(0,77\mathrm{~s})


Or

Option 5

Upwards as positive:

v_{f}^2=v_{i}^2+2a\Delta y

(7,5)^2=(0)^2+2(-9,8)\Delta y

\Delta y=-2,87m

\Delta y=v_{i}\Delta t+1/2a\Delta t^2

-2,87=(0)\Delta t+1/2(-9,8)(\Delta t)^2

\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,765\mathrm{~s}


Or

Downwards as positive:

v_{f}^2=v_{i}^2+2a\Delta y

(7,5)^2=(0)^2+2(9,8)\Delta y

\Delta y=2,87m

\Delta y=v_{i}\Delta t+1/2a\Delta t^2

2,87=(0)\Delta t+1/2(9,8)\Delta t^2

\Delta\mathrm{t}=0,765\mathrm{~s}
