QUESTION ONE: A Bicycle journey

A student cycles every day.

The speed-time graph below shows part of their journey on one day.


a) Calculate the acceleration of the student in section A of the graph above. Give an appropriate unit for your answer.

Acceleration = b) Explain whether the forces in section B of the graph on page 3 are balanced or unbalanced and how this results in the type of motion produced.

In your answer, you should:

• name the forces involved and describe their relative sizes (you may draw a labelled diagram in the box below to support your answer.)

• link the net force to the type of motion in section B.

| | c) Calculate the distance travelled in EACH section of the speed-time graph shown on page 3, and use the calculations to draw a distance-time graph for the student’s bike journey.

In your answer, you should:

• show all your working for the calculations

• clearly label the y-axis of the distance-time graph with the distance travelled

• draw an appropriate shape for each section of the student’s bike journey.

QUESTION TWO: Lifting an object
