AQUINAS DIOCESAN GRAMMAR Q10. A rocket has a mass of 1000kg. (a) What is its weight on the grounds?(g = 10N/kg) W = mg = (1000)(10) = 10000N (b) At takeoff the rocket engine exerts an upward force of 15000N on the rocket. Calculate the resultant (unbalanced) force on the rocket?

AQUINAS DIOCESAN GRAMMAR (b) At takeoff the rocket engine exerts an upward force of 15000N on the rocket. Calculate the resultant (unbalanced) force on the rocket? 10000N 15000N Resultant (unbalanced) force = 15000 - 10000 = 5000 N upwards

AQUINAS DIOCESAN GRAMMAR Q11. A railway wagon, of mass 2000kg, moving at a speed of 5m/s along a horizontal track, comes gradually to rest in a distance of 100m. Calculate the following, showing your working clearly. (a) What is its kinetic energy? K.E. = ½ mv 2 =½ (2000)(5) 2 = 25000J (b) The work done against friction while the wagon stops? Work Done against friction = Energy Changed Energy Changed(change in KE) = initial KE – Final KE = 25000 – 0 = 25000J

AQUINAS DIOCESAN GRAMMAR (c) The magnitude of the average frictional force that stops the wagon. Work Done = Frictional Force x Distance 25000 = Frictional Force x 100 Frictional force = 25000  100 = 250N
