PHYSICS

1. A metre rule is found to balance at 48cm mark. When a body of mass 60kg is suspended at the 6cm mark, the balance point is found to be at the 30cm mark

i. Calculate the mass of the metre rule

ii. Calculate the distance of the balance point from the zero end, if the body were moved to the 13cm mark

2a. when is an object said to be moving with a uniform speed

b. If a motor car accelerates uniformly from rest at 5.0m/s2 until, it reaches a speed of 20m/s. it travels at this speed for 4.0s. The brakes are then applied and the car comes to rest with uniform retardation in a further 8.0s

i) Use your graph to determine how far the car travelled after the brakes are applied

ii) Total distance travelled by the car

3a. Define

i) Principle focus

ii) Radius of curvature of a concave mirror

bi) Draw a ray diagram to show how an image is formed by a concave mirror when an object is placed at its centre of curvature

ii) State two differences and one similarity between the characteristics of the image formed in b(i) above and that formed by a plane mirror

4a. By means of ray construction show how a concave mirror can be used to produce a magnified virtual image of an object placed perpendicularly on its principal axis

4b. A concave mirror of focal length 20cm forms an erect image four times the size of the objects placed in front of it. Calculate the distance of the image from mirror
