Miguel has devised a method to measure how long a bouncing ball is in contact with the surface
from which it bounces. The method consists of dropping the ball on to the scale pan of a top pan
balance as shown in the diagram above. The balance is calibrated in newtons and Miguel records
the maximum reading on the scale, the height from which the ball is dropped and the height to
which it bounces.
Miguel obtains the following information.
Height from which the ball is dropped = 0.80 m
Height to which the ball bounces
= 0.60 m
Maximum reading on the balance scale = 50.0 N
The mass of the ball is 0.20 kg and the acceleration due to gravity is taken to have a value of 10 m s −2 .
(a) Calculate
(i) the speed of the ball when it strikes the scale pan. [1] .....................................................................
.....................................................................
(ii) the speed of the ball when it leaves the scale pan. [1] .....................................................................

(iii) the total change in momentum of the ball between striking and leaving the scale pan. [2] .....................................................................

(c) 881180 Miguel now drops another ball from the same height on to the scale pan. This ball is the
same mass as the first ball but is made of a harder material. Sketch, using the same axes as
in (b) above, the shape of the graph Miguel might expect to get for this ball. [2] Turn over –6– N01/430/S(2) A3. This question is about using the radioactive decay law to determine the age of an ancient campsite.
(a) The radioactive isotope carbon 14 (C14) is continually being produced in the upper
atmosphere by the interaction of neutrons with nitrogen 14.
Complete the nuclear reaction equation below for the formation of C14.
14
7 (b) N + n = 14 C +
6 [1] Some of the carbon atoms in a living tree consist of the radioactive isotope C14. Due to the
continual taking in of carbon the amount of C14 in the living tree remains constant
throughout the life of the tree. When the tree dies the taking in of carbon ceases and the
amount of C14 in the tree decreases with time.
(i) Explain why the amount of C14 decreases with time. [1] .....................................................................
.....................................................................
(ii) The halflife of C14 is 5600 years and the activity of wood from a living tree is
16.8 disintegrations per minute per unit mass.
A piece of burnt wood (charcoal) found at an ancient settlement has an activity of
4.2 disintegrations per minute per unit mass. Estimate the age of the settlement.
