May/June 2006

1 hour

Candidates answer on the Question Paper.

No Additional Materials are required.

READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST

Write your Centre number, candidate number and name on all the work you hand in. Write in dark blue or black pen in the spaces provided on the Question Paper. Do not use staples, paper clips, highlighters, glue or correction fluid. Answer all questions.

You may use a soft pencil for any diagrams, graphs or rough working. You may lose marks if you do not show your working or if you do not use appropriate units. At the end of the examination, fasten all your work securely together. The number of marks is given in brackets [ ] at the end of each question or part question.

(c) The ball is dropped from rest through a height of 4.5 m. (i)

Assuming air resistance to be negligible, calculate the final speed of the ball.

speed = …………………………… m s–1 [2]

(ii)

The ball has mass 15 g and radius 1.2 cm.

The numerical value of the constant c in the equation in (b) is equal to 3.2 × 10–4 when measured using the SI system of units.

Show quantitatively whether the assumption made in (i) is justified.
