Pre-Mock Test (Section A)

Name: Time: 1 hours

1. (a) The golf club hits the stationary ball of mass 0.045 kg and applies an average force of 2700 N.

(i) Calculate the acceleration of the golf ball due to this force. (1)

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

(ii) The golf club applies the force for 0.0012 s. Show that the velocity of the ball as it leaves the club is about
70 m/s. (2)

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

(iii) Calculate the change of momentum of the ball during this 0.0012 s. (2)

(v) Add two arrows to the diagram below to show the direction and line of action of each of the forces named
above. Label the arrows 1 and 2.

2. The diagram shows an arrangement which can be used to test the strength of a fabric. A sample of the fabric
is placed between a fixed surface and a clamp. The clamp is attached to a pivoted beam. By adding sand to the
container a stretching force is applied by the clamp to the fabric.

(a) The force applied by the sand and container is 60 N. Calculate the moment of this force about the pivot. (2)
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
(b) Calculate the stretching force applied by the clamp to the fabric. (Assume that the weight of the beam and
clamp is negligible.) (2)
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
(c) State and explain how your answer to (b) would be affected if the weight of the beam was not negligible.
(2)
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
(d) Give two ways in which the stretching force applied to the fabric could be increased using the same amount
of sand. (2)
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
(e) A picture in the student’s textbook shows two fishermen using a pole to carry some fish.

Fisherman A and fisherman B feel different forces on their shoulders.


Use ideas about moments to explain why fisherman A feels the larger force. (3)

(f) Some cars have a pedestrian airbag for safety. If a pedestrian is hit and lands on the front of the car, the
airbag inflates. Use ideas about momentum to explain how this airbag can reduce injuries to pedestrians.

4. A teacher attaches a tape to a trolley. The tape passes through a ticker-timer which makes a dot on the tape
every 0.020 seconds. He sets the trolley in motion. Part of the tape from the experiment is shown below.

(a) (i) Count the number of spaces between dot A and dot B.

2 A student is investigating how the extension of a spring varies when she changes the force stretching it. The
photograph shows how she sets up her experiment. The student has a ruler marked in centimeters. Each mass is
marked ‘100 g’. The student writes the following plan:
