While traveling along the road at velocity 20 m s -1, a car driver suddenly sees the road ahead blocked at the distance 62 m from the car. He applies the brakes as fast as he can. Once the brakes are applied, the car still moves fastly. He applies the brakes again more strongly until it stops before the road block. Graph in Figure 1 shows the motion of the car.

Figure (a) shows two identical plasticine spherical balls before being released from the same height. Figure (b) shows the state of the plasticine balls when the hit the wood and the sponge. It was observed that the plasticine stopped more quickly when it hit the wood.

Figure (b) (a) (i) What does the word momentum mean? [1 mark] (ii) Observe Figure (a) and Figure (b). Compare the shape of the plasticine balls, the surface of the wood, the surface of the sponge before and when the plasticine balls hit the surfaces. Relate the changes in shapes of the plasticine balls and the surfaces to deduce a relevant physics concept. [5 marks] (b) Explain the changes in energy that occur from the moment the plasticine ball is released until it reaches the position in Figure (b). [4 marks]

(c) An earth-monitoring satellite falls into the earth’s atmosphere at a high velocity and reaches a high temperature. This is caused by the earth’s gravitational force and air resistance. Using the appropriate physics concepts, suggest and explain suitable designs or ways to protect the satellite and its equipment: (i) from extreme heat, (ii) from breaking up on landing.
