Notes for some specific questions:




2 – Ans: C. For ans A, Tcos30 is the vertical component of tension T and cannot be equated to the horizontal force H.  B is incorrect since H is horizontal and the correct equation relating T and H would be Tsin30 = H where Tsin30 is the horizontal component of T. Ans C is correct since 2 vertical forces are being equated. As for ans D, W which is vertical is equated to Tsin30, which represents the horizontal component of T. So, it is incorrect.


3 - Ans: B. {Detailed explanations for this question is available as Solution 507 at Physics 9702 Doubts | Help Page 98 - http://physics-ref.blogspot.com/2015/03/physics-9702-doubts-help-page-98.html}

9 – Ans: D. The question asks what is MEANT by mass and weight of an object. For mass, only “the property that resists its acceleration” tell us what mass means. “Its momentum divided by its velocity” do not tell us what mass means. The same goes for weight. Weight is the pull of the Earth on it.




10 – Ans: B Gravitational force does not alter when the spacecraft is launched


11 - Ans: C. {Detailed explanations for this question is available as Solution 160 at Physics 9702 Doubts | Help Page 27 - http://physics-ref.blogspot.com/2014/11/physics-9702-doubts-help-page-27.html}



12 – Ans: D. When a body is moving through air to the left, there will be a drag force acting on it to the right, as well as its weight.



14 – Ans: D. Increase in force = 2(120cos(55)) – 2(100(cos(65)) = 53N




15 – Ans: B. {Detailed explanations for this question is available as Solution 208 at Physics 9702 Doubts | Help Page 33 - http://physics-ref.blogspot.com/2014/12/physics-9702-doubts-help-page-33.html}




16 – Ans: B. Internal energy of a system is the random energy of the atoms of the system. It is the sum of the potential and kinetic energies due to the random motion of the atoms. Internal energy is a property of the system itself. So, it cannot be “the amount of heat supplied to the system”.
