FORMULAE You may find the following formulae useful charge = current × time potential difference = current × resistance electrical power = current × potential difference energy transferred = current × potential difference × time speed = distance time change in velocity time taken a= (v − u ) t Q=I×t V=I×R P=I×V E=I×V×t

acceleration =

force = mass × acceleration weight = mass × gravitational field strength momentum = mass × velocity force = change in momentum time

F=m×a W=m×g P=m×v F= (mv − mu ) t

work done = force × distance moved in the direction of the force power = work done time taken

E=F×d P= E t

gravitational potential energy = mass × gravitational field strength × vertical height GPE = m × g × h kinetic energy = ½ × mass × velocity2 KE = ½ × m × v2

Answer ALL questions Some questions must be answered with a cross in a box . If you change your mind about an answer, put a line through the box and then mark your new answer with a cross . Weight lifting 1 The picture shows a weight lifter.

(a) In one lift, he does 5040 J of work against gravity. (i) One lift takes 4 seconds. Complete the sentence by putting a cross ( ) in a box next to your answer. The power used to lift the weight is (1) A B 1260 W 2016 W

C 12600 W D 20160 W (ii) The weight he lifts has a mass of 240 kg. Gravitational Field Strength = 10 N/Kg The energy gained by the mass is equal to the work done when lifting it. Calculate the height he lifts this mass. (3)
