Question 8

Question
When adding or subtracting measured quantities, how do we find the uncertainty?
Answer
  • Add the absolute uncertainty of each
  • Add the percentage uncertainty of each

Question 15

Question
How do you combine parallel vectors?
Answer
  • Add/subtract them

  • The contact force of water
  • The opposite of gravity

Question 18

Question

Answer
  • The force on an object due to gravity
  • Gravity
  • The mass of an object

Question 19

Question
What is the pulling force exerted by a string, chain, cable or similar object?
Answer
  • Tension
  • Normal reaction force
  • Weight
  • Upthrust

Question 20

Question
What is friction
Answer
  • A force resisting the parallel movement of two surfaces in contact
  • A force that slows down objects
  • A force which prevents objects from sliding

Question 21

Question
Which of these are fundamental forces?
Answer
  • Strong Nuclear
  • Weak Nuclear
  • Gravitational
  • Electromagnetic

Question 22

Question
In which direction does weight act?
Answer
  • Vertically downwards
  • Perpendicularly downwards to the object
  • Parallel to the surface

Question 23

Question
In which direction does the normal reaction force act?
Answer
  • Vertically upwards
  • Perpendicular to the surface producing it
  • Perpendicular to the object
  • Parallel to the object

Question 24

Question
If an object is in equilibrium it is static
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 25

Question
What does equilibrium mean?
Answer
  • There are no forces acting on a body
  • There is no resultant force
  • A body is completely still
  • A body is balanced

Question 26

Question
What is a moment?
Answer
  • The turning effect of a single force
  • force x distance
  • force x perpendicular distance
  • weight x distance
  • force/distance
  • A pair of forces that are equal and opposite
  • The forces on an object

Question 27

Question
What is the principle of moments?
Answer
  • The sum of the clockwise moments of an object = the sum of the anticlockwise moments of an object
  • If an object is in equilibrium: the sum of clockwise moments = the sum of anticlockwise moments
  • The sum of anticlockwise moments on an object can never fully equal the sum of clockwise moments on an object
