- 1.Whats is the definiton of Kinematics?
- A.
The branch of mechanics that studies the motion of a body or a system of bodies without consideration given to its mass or the forces acting on it.

- B.
The branch of mechanics that is concerned with the effects of forces on the motion of a body or system of bodies, especially of forces that do not originate within the system itself.

- C.
The study of the motion of a body or a system of bodies with consideration given to its mass or the forces acting on it.

- 6.An aeroplane’s wing is specially shaped so that it gets some of its lift due to Bernoulli’s principle. Why is this?
- A.
The air travels more underneath the wing than above it. This creates higher pressure above the wing than below and lift is created.

The air travels more over the top of the wing than beneath it. This creates higher pressure below the wing than above it and lift is created.

- C.
The air travels more over the top of the wing than beneath it. This creates lower pressure below the wing than above it and lift is created.

- D.
The air travels more underneath the wing than above it. This creates lower pressure above the wing than below it and lift is created.

- 9.What is velocity?
- A.
Velocity = change in displacement / time

Velocity = change in displacement / speed

- D.
Velocity = time / change in displacement

- 10.Why will a dimpled golf ball travel further than a smooth golf ball?
- A.
The smooth golf ball creates a larger area of turbulent air behind it which creates a larger area of high pressure so there will be less drag

- B.
The dimpled golf ball creates a smaller area of turbulent air behind it which creates a smaller area of low pressure so there will be less drag

- C.
The smooth golf ball creates a smaller area of turbulent air behind it which creates a smaller area of low pressure so there will be more drag

- D.
The dimpled golf ball creates a larger area of turbulent air behind it which creates a larger area of high pressure so there will be more drag

- B.
Displacement is the total distance travelled along the path of motion, distance is the distance between the start and end point only

- C.
Displacement is the distance between the start and end point only, distance is the distance between the start and end point only

- D.
