V_{resultant}^{2}= V_{north}^{2}+V_{west}^{2}V_{resultant}^{2}= 4.8^{2}+2.0^{2}V_{resultant}^{2}= 23.04+4.0 V_{resultant}^{2}= 27.04Vtanq = V_{resultant}= 5.2m/s_{north}/V_{west}tanq = 4.8/2 tanq = 2.4 q = tan^{-1}2.4 q = 67.4^{o}V32.a. F_{resultant}= 5.2m/s at a bearing of 292.6^{o}_{avg}= DP/t F_{avg}= m(v-u)/t m = 0.05kg u = 0m/s v = 2.0m/s t = 0.060s F_{avg}= 0.05(2.0-0)/0.06Fb. 33.a. V_{avg}= 1.67N_{meter}= [R_{1}/(R_{1}+R_{2})]xV_{supply}V_{meter}= [6/(6+6)]x10VThis answer is obvious because the voltage splits up evenly across the 6W resistors. b. Calculate the resistance of the 3W and 6W parallel network. 1/R_{meter}= 5V_{p}= 1/R_{1}+ 1/R_{2}1/R_{p}= 1/6 +1/3 1/R_{p}= 3/6 R_{p}= 6/3 = 2W The circuit can therefore be reduced to that below. Where the 2W resistor represents the parallel network. The voltmeter reading can now be calculated. V_{meter}= [R_{p}/(R_{1}+R_{p})]xV_{supply}V_{meter}= [2/(6+2)]x10VThis problem can also be solved using ohm's law. 34. Each half of the loop has a resistance of 15W. These half loops are like two resistors of equal value in parallel. Using this analysis allows R_{meter}= 2.5V_{p}to be calculated. R_{p}= R/N R_{p}= 15/2R35.a. This is an example of a_{p}= 7.5Wnuclear fission reaction. b. The total mass of the reactants is greater than the mass of the products. This "missing mass" also called the mass defect is converted into energy. The energy released can be calculated using E = mc^{2}, where m is the missing mass value in kilograms. 36. To increase the current in the circuit, as the supply frequency is increased, the voltage across the resistor must increase. 37.a.Ewill produce the highest energy/frequency radiation. b. DE = E_{4}to E_{0}_{4}- E_{0}DE = hf f = DE/h f = (E_{4}- E_{0})/h f = [-0.864x10^{-19}-(-21.76x10^{-19})]/6.63x10^{-34}f = 20.896x10^{-19}/6.63x10^{-34}f = 3.15x10^{15}Hz## END OF QUESTION PAPER
