b). How long was the ball in the air? (3 marks)
c). What is the horizontal distance X travelled? (2 marks)
During a snooker competition, a 200 grams ball A moving with velocity V! as show in the diagram above, collides head-on with an identical ball B that was at rest. After the collision, ball A remains at rest while ball B moves on with a velocity of 4m/s.
a). With what speed was ball A moving before the collision? (1 marks)
b). What is the momentum of the ball B after the collision? (2 marks)
c). What is the momentum of ball A after the collision? (1mark)
d). What are the directions of the forces exerted by balls on each other? (2marks)
e). Which of the three laws of motion (Newton’s Laws) is being applied in part a). above? (1 mark)
A boy can carry a 2kg box and walk one meter to the right. Then he raises it by 1m and places it on a shelf.
a). Explain why the boy cannot do any work in carrying the box horizontally. (2 marks)
b). Calculate the work the boy does in raising the box vertically and placing it on the shelf. (2 marks)
c). If the boy takes one minute to raise the box vertically, what is the power used in raising the box?
d). What form of energy does the box have as a result of being raised and placed on the shelf? (1mark)
a) How many changes in phase are involved in working out the total amount of heat required to raise the temperature of ice at -15°C to steam at 115°C? (1 mark)
b) In a hot climate, the inhabitants often wear while coloured clothes. Explain why they do that? (1 mark)

e) You bought two cooking pots with same masses and volumes. One is made of copper which has a specific heat capacity of 400J/kg°C and the other is made of aluminum whose specific heat capacity is 900J/kg°C . If the same amount of heat is applied to both cooking pots with equal amount of rice and water in them, in which of the pots will rice cook faster? (1 mark)
