__Question 655: [Pressure]__
Graph shows how pressure exerted by
a liquid varies with depth below the surface.

What is density of the liquid?

A 600 kgm

^{–3}B 760 kgm^{–3}C 5900 kgm^{–3}D 7500 kgm^{–3}**Reference:**

*Past Exam Paper – November 2003 Paper 1 Q19*

__Solution 655:__**Answer: B.**

Pressure P = hρg

Density ρ = P / hg = (P/h) / g

From the graph (consider points
(0.4, 3000) and (0, 0)),

Graph = (3000 – 0) / (0.4 – 0) =
7500

Density = 7500 / 9.81 = 760 kgm

^{2}R. When R = 0, P = 0}
(ii) Power in Q = 0 / tends to zero
as R = infinity

{As the total resistance
in the circuit increases, the current decreases. I = V / R. So, if R =
infinite, current I = 0}

*Past Exam Paper – June 2004 Paper 1 Q21 & November 2007 Paper 1 Q17 & June 2011 Paper 12 Q21*

__Solution 657:__**Answer: C.**

Mass of 1 atom of P and Q are M

_{P}and M_{Q}respectively.
Number of atoms per unit volume of P
and Q are N

_{P}and N_{Q}respectively.
Total mass per unit volume = MN

Density = total mass / volume

_{P}N_{P}
Density of Q = M

_{Q}N_{Q}
The density of P is greater than
that of Q.

(ii)

EITHER a scale diagram is drawn

OR use of cosine formula v

^{2}= 250^{2}+ 36^{2}– (2×250×36×cos 45°)
OR resolving v = [(36 cos 45°)

^{2}+ (250 – 36 sin 45°)^{2}]^{1/2}
{I recommend using
calculation to solve this question as the answer obtained will be more accurate
(+ it has not been imposed to use vector diagram here).

From the laws of angles,
the angle between the wind direction and the aircraft motion is 45°. The
direction if the wind is from north-west, so the wind will always be at 45° to both
the vertical and the horizontal.

From the cosine formula,

v

^{2}= 250^{2}+ 36^{2}– (2×250×36×cos 45°)
Resultant velocity v = 226
ms

^{-1}}
{Alternatively, this can
be solved by resolving the perpendicular components of the vectors involved and
then finding the resultant vector.

The motion of the aircraft
is shown to be vertically up, so it has no horizontal component.

Horizontal component of
wind (to the right) = 36 cos 45°

Vertical component of win
(down) = 36 sin45°

Resultant vertical component
of velocity = 250 – 36sin45°

Resultant horizontal
component of velocity = 36cos45°

Resultant velocity vector v
= [(36 cos 45°)

^{2}+ (250 – 36 sin 45°)^{2}]^{1/2}}
Resultant velocity = 226 m s

__Question 659: [Matter > Phases of matter]__
Student writes some statements about
solids, liquids and gases.

1 Solids are rigid because the
molecules in a solid vibrate.

2 Liquids flow because the molecules
in a liquid are closer than in a gas.

3 Gases are less dense than liquids
because the molecules in a gas move randomly.

Which statements are correct?

A 1 only

B 1 and 3 only

C 2 and 3 only

D none of the above

**Reference:**

*Past Exam Paper – November 2010 Paper 11 Q20 & Paper 13 Q22*

__Solution 659:__**Answer: D.**

None of the above statements are
correct.

Solids are rigid because the atoms /
molecules in the solids are closely packed together and are held together by
strong forces of attraction.

Both liquids and gases (fluids) can
flow. The reason for the flow is not because the molecules in a liquid are closer
than in a gas.

Gases are less dense than liquids
because the molecules in a liquid are closer to each other. So, in an equal
volume of a gas and a liquid, the amount of molecules (matter) in a liquid is
greater.
