Question:

If experimental data doesn’t produce a straight trend line it doesn’t mean there isn’t a relationship. The use of software packages can allow quick and accurate testing of data to different trend lines so that a suitable relationship can be found if it exists.

Answer:

(a).As you can see in the graph the given data of pressure Vs altitude shows an exponential variation.

(b).The appropriate trend line is shown in dotted lines on the graph.

(c). Trend line equation is given by

Question:

Probability can be used so that companies can decide on reasonable waiting times.

The waiting times for a bus are normally distributed with a standard deviation of 0.3 minutes. 80% of people waiting for a bus have to wait no more than 5 minutes. Calculate the mean average waiting time for one of these buses. (3)

Answer:

Table 01: Cumulative probability for Z values

According to the above table

Z value corresponding to 0.8 cumulative probability is:

Let

be the mean average waiting time for a buses

Then

The angular displacement

in radians of a rotating disc is given by

where t is the time in seconds. Calculate:

a) The angular velocity of the disc after 1.5 seconds stating the units. (3)

b) The angular acceleration of the disc after 1.5 seconds stating the units. (3)

c) The first time when the angular velocity is zero. (2)

Answer:

Angular displacement

is given by function of

by following equation

(a).Then Angular velocity

, is given by

Angular velocity of the disc after 1.5s

(b).Then Angular acceleration

, is given by

Angular acceleration of the disc after 1.5s

(c).When angular velocity becomes zero for the first time where
