Bell Ringer Sept 4/5 • Consider the graph at the right. The object whose motion is represented by this graph is ... (include all that are true): • moving in the positive direction. • moving with a constant velocity. • moving with a negative velocity. • slowing down. • changing directions. • speeding up. • moving with a positive acceleration. • moving with a constant acceleration.
Bell Ringer Sept 6/7 • A car (A) moves to the left with speed 40km/h (with respect to the road). Another car (B) moves to the right with speed 60km/h(also with respect to the road). Find the relative velocity of B with respect to A. • After 5s a car is moving 20km/h. It uniformly accelerates to 60km/h in 15s. If the car were to continue to accelerate at the same rate how fast would it be going after a total time of 1 min. Use a graph to estimate the value.
An ice cube melts at a constant rate. For every increases of 3degress in the room temperature ice will melt 6ml of water. Use a graph to determine the how much ice has melted if the room temperature has increased a total of 13degress.

Oct 1/2 At a railway station, two trains slowly collide in order to “couple” (join together). If one train of mass 12000kg is moving at 0.75m/s and the other of mass 3000kg is stationary, calculate the velocity of the two as they move away.
Oct 3/4 • Ball A travelling with speed V in the direction shown makes a glancing collision with stationary ball B of the same mass. After the collision the balls move off with speeds Va and Vb in the directions show on board. Which one of the following is true? Explain. • A) Vacosα = Vbcosβ • B) Va sin α = Vbsingβ • C) V = Vacosα + Vbcosβ • D) V = Va + Vb
Answer: A • Since momentum is a vector quantity, direction is also conserved i.e. momentum in the +x to –x direction = 0. Vacosα = Vbcosβ
