PAPER 3 SECTION A (Q1 : PLOTTING THE GRAPH)

SPM 2005

NAME :

CLASS :

1. A student carries out an experiment to study the relationship between the speed, v of a trolley with the distance of compression, e of a spring that pushes the trolley down a track.

A piece of ticker tape is fixed to the trolley which is placed on a non-friction track as shown in Diagram 1.1.

is placed on a non-friction track as shown in Diagram 1.1. Diagram 1.1 The trolley is

Diagram 1.1

The trolley is pushed back to compress the spring to a distance of compression, e equal to 2.0 cm. A section of the ticker tape which represents the movement of the trolley when it reached the end of the track, is taken. The actual size of the ticker tape is shown in Diagram 1.3.

The trolley is then released and it moves down the track with speed v. The speed, v when trolley reached the end of the track can be calculated by using the formula:

v =

0.2 cm s -1

where x is length for 10 ticks as shown in Diagram 1.2. One tick is equal to two consecutive dots.

- 1 where x is length for 10 ticks as shown in Diagram 1.2. One tick

Diagram 1.2

The above procedure is repeated by varying the values of e, 3.0 cm, 4.0 cm, 5.0 cm and 6.0 cm. The actual sizes of the sections of the ticker tape are shown in Diagram 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, and 1.7.
