Speed of sound in air is 340ms -1. A shot is fired and the echo is heard 2 s after the shot was fired. How far is the reflecting surface? A 340m . B 680m . C 170m . D 85m . E 34m . 5. The oscillation of a pendulum is simple harmonic when the amplitude is small compared to its length. This is because: A a long pendulum loses less energy . B the restoring force is proportional to displacement at small angles . C friction of the pivot is smaller when the pendulum is long . D a long pendulum is more massive. E it has a higher length to mass ratio.
3 6. A coil of wire stores energy in the form of A charge . B potential difference . C magnetic field . D A and B . E A and C . 7.
