17. Fig. 2.1 shows a rock of mass 2 kg that is falling from the top of a cliff into the river below.

(a) Fig. 6.2 is the speed-time graph for the motion of the rock.

(i) State the maximum speed of the rock. . m/s [1]
(ii) Use your answer to (i) to calculate the kinetic energy of the rock as it hits the water.
State the formula that you use and show your working.
Formula used:

... J [2]

(b) An observer on the top of the cliff measured the time between when he saw the rock hit
the water and when he heard the sound of the splash. This time was 0.25 s. The speed of
sound in air is 330m/s.

Calculate the height of the cliff. State the formula that you use and show your working.

19. The strength of phone cases can be tested by dropping the phones onto different surfaces
from a height of 2 m.

A phone of mass 80 g is dropped onto a concrete path. The case breaks when it hits the
concrete. When an identical mobile phone is dropped onto a soft carpet from the same height,
the case does not break.
(i) State the momentum that each of these phones have AFTER it has landed on the surface.
(ii) As a phone was about to hit the concrete path, its momentum was 1.2 kg m/s. It took 0.03
seconds to stop.
The force it experienced as it hit is given by the formula:
force = change in momentum / time taken to stop

Calculate this force.
Show your working.

(iii) The phones that hit the concrete and the soft carpet had the same change in momentum.
Suggest why the phone dropped onto the soft carpet did not break.

20. A student is doing an experiment with a spring to which a weight hanger is attached.
This is shown in Fig. 2.1.

A 200 g mass is attached to the weight hanger. When the mass is pulled down and then
released, it oscillates (bounces up and down). This is shown in Fig. 2.2.

. Using a stopclock, the student finds the time in seconds taken for 20 oscillations.
. He records the results in Fig. 2.3.
. He increases the mass to 300 g and finds the new time.
. The student repeats the experiment using 400 g and 500 g masses.
