Question 1

Question 3

Question 4
(a)
Arrangement for producing stationary waves in tube that is closed at one end.
How waves from loudspeaker produce stationary waves in tube:

The waves travel along the tube and are reflected at the closed end (end of tube). The incident and reflected waves are in opposite directions and so, interfere and stationary wave is formed if the tube length is equivalent to λ/4, 3λ/4, etc.

(b)
(i)
Motion of air particles in tube at 1. Point P    2. Point S

1.
No motion of air particle as P is a node (zero amplitude).

2.
Vibration (motion) of the air particles is backwards and forwards / maximum amplitude along length.

(ii)
Speed of sound in tube = 330ms-1 and frequency of waves from loudspeaker = 880Hz. Calculate length of tube:

L = 3λ/4
v = f λ.                        So, λ = 330 / 880 = 0.375m
L = ¾ x (0.375) = 0.28 (0.281)m



Question 5

Question 6
(a)
Hooke’s law states that the extension of a spring is proportional to the force/load applied to it.

(b)
Object M of mass 0.41kg attached to lower end of spring. Spring extends until M is at rest at R.
Spring constant, k = 25Nm-1. Show that extension is about 0.16m:
F = mg = kx
x = mg / k = 0.41x9.81 / 25 = 0.16m

(c)
Object pulled down a further 0.060m to S and then release. For M, just as it is released:
(i)
Forces acting on M:
Weight and (reaction) force from spring (which is equal to tension in spring)

(ii)
Acceleration of M:

F – weight = ma                                  or (25x0.06) = ma

F = (0.1609 + 0.06) x 25 = 5.52N       or (0.16+0.06) x 25 = 5.5N

a = (5.52 – (0.41x9.81)) / 0.41            or 1.5 / 0.41 and (5.5 – 4.02)
a = 3.7 (3.66)ms-2                                gives 3.6ms-2

(d)
Describe energy changes from time object is released to time it first returns to R:
The elastic potential energy / strain energy is converted to kinetic and gravitational potential energy. The stretching / extension reduces while the velocity of object M, along with its height from the ground increases.

  7. For Q7 d(ii) May I know why the answer is products must have KE? And, for Q2 (c)(i) 2. why the change of momentum of ball and wall is 0? Thank You

    1. The explanation for question 2 has been updated.

      For Q7,
      The total energy must be conserved. So, if the products are moving, their kinetic energy would account for the energy of the radiation being less than 13.8MeV. In this way, the total energy is 13.8MeV and the law of conservation of energy still applies.
