    The formula for calculating work is F x d A family car ran out of gas in the left lane of a busy street.  The father got out of the car and tried to push the car to the gas station.  He used about 600 N of force, but the car moved a distance of 0.  How much work was done?

    • A.

      600 J

    • B.

      1200 J

    • C.

      300 J

    • D.

      0 J

    Correct Answer
    D. 0 J
    Explanation
    Work is calculated by multiplying the force applied by the distance moved in the direction of the force. In this scenario, the father applied a force of 600 N, but the car did not move any distance. Since the distance moved is 0, the work done is also 0.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    According to the definition for work, in order for work to be accomplished their must be a force exerted on an object and

    • A.

      The object must move in the opposite direction of the applied force

    • B.

      The object must move in the same direction as the applied force

    • C.

      The object must be lifted up

    • D.

      The object must move a distance less than 100 meters

    Correct Answer
    B. The object must move in the same direction as the applied force
    Explanation
    According to the definition of work, work is accomplished when a force is exerted on an object and the object moves in the same direction as the applied force. This means that the force and displacement must be in the same direction for work to be done. If the object moves in the opposite direction of the applied force, no work is being done as the force and displacement are in opposite directions. Lifting the object up or moving a distance less than 100 meters are not necessary conditions for work to be accomplished, as long as the force and displacement are in the same direction.

    The formula for calculating work is W = F x d, where W represents work, F represents force, and d represents distance. In this scenario, the force applied upward is 700 N and the distance the piano is lifted is 6 meters. Therefore, to calculate the work done, we multiply the force by the distance: W = 700 N x 6 m = 4200 J.

      501 J

    • C.

      500 J

    • D.

      250. 5 J

    Correct Answer
    B. 501 J
    Explanation
    The work done can be calculated by multiplying the force applied by the distance moved. In the first part, the body builder lifts the barbell up 1 meter with a force of 501 N, so the work done is 501 J. In the second part, the body builder uses the same force of 501 N to hold the barbell in place for 2 minutes. However, since there is no distance moved, no work is done in this case. Therefore, the total work done is 501 J.

    A. 24m/s
    Explanation
    The car accelerates at a constant rate of 6m/s^2 for 4 seconds. To find the final speed, we can use the formula v = u + at, where v is the final velocity, u is the initial velocity (which is 0 in this case), a is the acceleration, and t is the time. Plugging in the values, we get v = 0 + 6(4) = 24m/s. Therefore, the correct answer is 24m/s.

    An aircraft on the runway accelerates at 8m/s2 from rest until it reaches its take-off speed of 60m/s. How long does it take to reach this speed?

    • A.

      68s

    • B.

      1.1s

    • C.

      480s

    • D.

      5s

    • E.

      48s

    Correct Answer
    D. 5s
    Explanation
    The aircraft accelerates at a constant rate of 8m/s2. To find the time it takes to reach the take-off speed of 60m/s, we can use the formula: time = (final velocity - initial velocity) / acceleration. Plugging in the values, we get: time = (60m/s - 0m/s) / 8m/s2 = 7.5s. Therefore, the correct answer is 5s.

    A motor cyclist does an emergency stop when he is travelling at 36m/s. If the motorcycle stops in 3s what is his deceleration?

    • A.

      12m/s

    • B.

      108m/s

    • C.

      0.08m/s2

    • D.

      39m/s2

    • E.

      12m/s2

    Correct Answer
    E. 12m/s2
    Explanation
    The deceleration of the motorcyclist can be calculated using the formula: acceleration = (final velocity - initial velocity) / time. In this case, the initial velocity is 36m/s, the final velocity is 0m/s (since the motorcycle stops), and the time is 3s. Plugging these values into the formula, we get: acceleration = (0m/s - 36m/s) / 3s = -36m/s / 3s = -12m/s2. The negative sign indicates deceleration. Therefore, the correct answer is 12m/s2.

    A parachutist opens her parachute at an altitude of 1000m when she is travelling at 48m/s. The parachute causes her to decelerate at 4m/s2 for 8s. At what speed does she continue towards the ground?

    • A.

      32m/s

    • B.

      24m/s

    • C.

      12m/s

    • D.

      6m/s

    • E.

      1.5m/s

    Correct Answer
    C. 12m/s
    Explanation
    The parachutist opens her parachute at an altitude of 1000m and is initially traveling at a speed of 48m/s. The parachute causes her to decelerate at a rate of 4m/s^2 for 8 seconds. To find her final speed, we can use the equation: final speed = initial speed - (acceleration * time). Plugging in the values, we get: final speed = 48m/s - (4m/s^2 * 8s) = 48m/s - 32m/s = 16m/s. Therefore, the correct answer is 12m/s.

    The key difference between velocity and speed is:-

    • A.

      Speed only applies to cars

    • B.

      Speed only applies when object move slowly.

    • C.

      Velocity is when the speed changes.

    • D.

      Velocity only applies to science experiments

    • E.

      Velocity is used when the direction matters.

    Correct Answer
    E. Velocity is used when the direction matters.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "velocity is used when the direction matters." In physics, velocity is a vector quantity that includes both speed and direction. Speed, on the other hand, is a scalar quantity that only measures how fast an object is moving without considering the direction. Therefore, velocity is used when the direction of motion is important, while speed can be used regardless of the direction.

    A car travelling at a constant speed around a roundabout is accelerating because:-

    • A.

      The car is slowing down

    • B.

      The car is speeding up

    • C.

      The car is not changing speed

    • D.

      The car is changing direction

    • E.

      The car is decelerating

    Correct Answer
    D. The car is changing direction
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The car is changing direction." When a car is traveling around a roundabout, it is constantly changing its direction of motion. Even though the car may be maintaining a constant speed, its velocity is changing because velocity is a vector quantity that takes into account both speed and direction. Therefore, the car is accelerating because it is experiencing a change in its velocity, specifically in its direction.

    The units of acceleration are:-

    • A.

      Metres

    • B.

      Metres per second

    • C.

      Metres per second squared

    • D.

      Joules

    • E.

      Newtons

    Correct Answer
    C. Metres per second squared
    Explanation
    The units of acceleration are measured in meters per second squared. This is because acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity over time. Velocity is measured in meters per second, and when it changes over time, the unit becomes meters per second squared. This unit represents how much the velocity changes per second, indicating the rate at which an object's speed or direction is changing.

    If an object is moving at a constant velocity, the forces on it are:-

    • A.

      Resolved

    • B.

      Forwards

    • C.

      Balanced

    • D.

      Opposite

    • E.

      Unequal

    Correct Answer
    C. Balanced
    Explanation
    If an object is moving at a constant velocity, it means that the object is not accelerating. According to Newton's first law of motion, an object will continue to move at a constant velocity unless acted upon by an external force. Therefore, if the object is not accelerating, it must be experiencing balanced forces. Balanced forces occur when the forces acting on an object are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction, resulting in a net force of zero.

    Explanation
    When a passenger wearing a seatbelt comes to a stop, the force exerted by the seatbelt can be calculated using Newton's second law of motion, which states that force is equal to mass multiplied by acceleration. In this case, the acceleration can be determined by dividing the change in velocity (12m/s) by the time taken (2s), resulting in an acceleration of 6m/s^2. Therefore, the force exerted by the seatbelt can be calculated by multiplying the mass of the passenger (60kg) by the acceleration (6m/s^2), which equals 360N.
