1. Which of these letters correctly shows the centre of gravity of this shape?

CofG

2. Which of these graphs shows inceasing acceleration?

3. If a force acts at 90 degrees to a moving vehicle, it will make the vehicle

  • A). speed up
  • B). slow down
  • C). move in a curved path
  • D). stop

4. If there are no resultant forces acting on a system, it is said to be in

  • A). equilibrium
  • B). balance
  • C). stasis
  • D). stability

These questions are about a see-saw. When different children sit on the see-saw they find they have to move to different points to make the see-saw balance. What are the missing values needed to make the see saw balance?

  • B). odometers and manometers
  • C). odometers and barometers
  • D). barometers and decimeters

 

15. What is 'Brownian Motion'?

  • A) The vibrating of atoms
  • B) the collision of particles in a gas
  • C) The movement of substances across a pressure gradient
  • D) The random motion of large smoke or pollen particles

16. It is difficult to measure very high temperatures with a standard thermometer. Instead, a device using a pair of metals in contact is used, called a

  • A) manometer
  • B) thermocouple
  • C) thermistor
  • D) fixed point device

17. A kettle is filled with 1 kg of boiling water. It is turned on and the energy supplied is measured as the water is boiled away. The mass of water remaining can be measured after a certain amount of energy is supplied.

This experiment is used to find the

  • A) latent heat of vaporisation
  • B) specific heat capacity of water
  • C) fixed point for water
  • D) fixed point for fusion
