A student investigates the oscillation of a horizontal rod hanging at the end of a vertical string. The diagram shows the view from above. vertical string
rod scale The student starts the rod oscillating and measures the largest displacement for each cycle of the oscillation on the scale and the time at which it occurs. The student begins to take measurements a few seconds after releasing the rod. The graph shows the variation of displacement x with time t since the release of the rod. The uncertainty for t is negligible.
18.0 16.0 14.0 12.0 x / cm
10.0 8.0 6.0 4.0 2.0 0.0
20 25 t/s
On the graph above, draw the line of best fit for the data.
(This question continues on the following page)
(Question 1 continued) (b)
Calculate the percentage uncertainty for the displacement when t = 40 s.
A student measures the refractive index of the glass of a microscope slide. He uses a travelling microscope to determine the position x1 of a mark on a sheet of paper. He then places the slide over the mark and finds the position x2 of the image of the mark when viewed through the slide. Finally, he uses the microscope to determine the position x3 of the top of the slide.
x3 x2 x1
image of mark mark
sheet of paper
The table shows the average results of a large number of repeated measurements. Average position of mark / mm
The refractive index of the glass from which the slide is made is given by
x3 − x1 . x3 − x2 Determine (i)
the refractive index of the glass to the correct number of significant figures, ignoring any uncertainty.
After correcting the adjustment of the travelling microscope, the student repeats the experiment using a glass block 10 times thicker than the original microscope slide. Explain the change, if any, to the calculated result for the refractive index and its uncertainty.
Two protons are moving with the same velocity in a particle accelerator. protons Observer X is at rest relative to the accelerator. Observer Y is at rest relative to the protons. Explain the nature of the force between the protons as observed by observer X and observer Y.
An observer on Earth watches a rocket A. The spacetime diagram shows part of the motion of A in the reference frame of the Earth observer. Three flashing light beacons, X, Y and Z, are used to guide rocket A. The flash events are shown on the spacetime diagram. The diagram shows the axes for the reference frames of Earth and of rocket A. The Earth observer is at the origin.

X 0 0
x / km 1

(Option A, question 6 continued) (a)
For the reference frame of the Earth observer, calculate the speed of rocket A in terms of the speed of light c.
A block of ice is placed on the slope beside the solid cylinder and both are released at the same time. The block of ice is the same mass as the solid cylinder and slides without friction. At any given point on the slope, the speed of the block of ice is greater than the speed of the solid cylinder. Outline why, using the answer to (b)(i).
