= 3% (b) From (a), the percentage error of a short time interval (e.g. 10 s) measured by a stop-watch is very large. Since the time intervals of 110-m hurdles are very short in the Olympic Games, stopwatches are not used to avoid large

(a) From 1 January 2009 to 10 January 2009, the watch runs slower than the actual time by 9 minutes. Therefore, when the actual time is 2:00 pm on 10 January 2009, the time shown on the watch should be 1:51 pm on 10 January 2009. (b) Percentage error 9 = 100% 9 24 60 = 6.94 102%

(a) The distance travelled by the ball will be longer if it takes a curved path. (b) No matter which path the ball takes, its displacement remains the same.

Therefore, its displacement was zero and its average velocity was also zero. 4 5 D (a) Average speed 100 = 10.3 m s1 = 9.69 (b) Yes. This is because the magnitude of the displacement is equal to the distance in this case. 6 (a) Two cars move with the same speed, e.g. 50 km h1, but in opposite directions.

## Since ZX = ZY = 1 m, = = 60. Therefore, XY = ZX = ZY = 1 m The magnitude of the displacement of the ball is 1 m.

(b) A man runs around a 400-m playground. When we calculate his average speed, we can take 400 m as the distance and his average speed is nonzero. But since his displacement is zero (he returns to his starting point), his
