QUESTION 4 PAPER 2 IMPULSIVE FORCE

Diagram 1.1

Diagram 1.2

Diagrams show two identical eggs with 100g mass were threw from 0.5m height to difference
surface. The time was taken 3.5 s for Diagram 1.1 and 5 s for Diagram 1.2 until its touch the
surface.
a) i.

What is meant by impulsive force?


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------(1 mark)

ii.

Compare the impact force for both diagrams


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------(1 mark)

iii.

Find the force exerted on the egg of Diagram 1.1


[(100g/1000kg) 0.5m] / 3.5s
= 0.014 N
(2 marks)

b) By using appropriate physics concepts, suggest and explain suitable methods of reducing
impulsive force in high jump sport.
