in equilibrium by vertical strings attached to the ends A and B, the tension in the string
attached to A is T. When instead the rod is held in equilibrium in a horizontal position by means of a smooth pivot at a distance I from A and a vertical string attached to B, the tension in the string is ’I‘.
Show that 5T :2 2W. When instead the end B of the rod rests on rough horizontal ground and the rod is held in
equilibrium at an angle 6 to the horizontal by means of a string that is perpendicular to the
rod and attached to A, the tension in the string is éT. Calculate 9 and ﬁnd the smallest value
of coefficient of friction between the rod and the ground that will prevent slipping. Three collinear, nontouching particles A, B and C have masses o, b and c, respectively,
and are at rest on a smooth horizontal surface. The particle A is given an initial velocity it
towards B . These particles collide, giving B a velocity 12 towards C. These two particles then
collide, giving C a velocity w. The coefﬁcient of restitution is e in both collisions. Determine an expression for v, and show that 2

where 0 g t < 27r. (i) Show that the particle passes through the origin exactly twice. (ii) Determine the times when the velocity of the particle is perpendicular to its displace»
ment. (iii) Show that, when the particle is not at the origin, its velocity is never parallel to its
displacement. (iv) Determine the maximum distance of the particle from the origin, and sketch the path
of the particle. 0405 505 7 Section C: Probability and Statistics 12 The probability that a hobbit smokes a pipe is 0.7 and the probability that a hobbit
wears a hat is 0.4. The probability that a hobbit smokes a pipe but does not wear a
hat is p. Determine the range of values of p consistent with this information. (b) The probability that a wizard wears a hat is 0.7 ; the probability that a wizard wears a
cloak is 0.8 ; and the probability that a wizard wears a ring is 0.4 . The probability that
a wizard does not wear a hat, does not wear a cloak and does not wear a ring is 0.05.
The probability that a wizard wears a hat, a cloak and also a ring is 0.1 . Determine
the probability that a wizard wears exactly two of a hat, a cloak, and a ring. The probability that a wizard wears a hat but not a ring, given that he wears a cloak,
is q. Determine the range of values of q consistent with this information. 13 The random variable X has mean a and standard deviation 0'. The distribution of X is
symmetrical about a and satisﬁes: P(X<n+0)==a and P(X<u+%a):b,
where a and b are ﬁxed numbers. Do not assume that X is Normally distributed. (a) Determine expressions (in terms of a and b) for P(lrw%a<X<n+a) and P(X<n+%aX,>,n~—%0). (b) My local supermarket sells cartons of skimmed milk and cartons of full~fat milk: 60%
of the cartons it sells contain skimmed milk, and the rest contain fullfat milk. The volume of skimmed milk in a carton is modelled by X ml, with p = 500 and a = 10.
The volume of full fat milk in a carton is modelled by X ml, with n = 495 and a = 10. (i) Today, I bought one carton of milk, chosen at random, from this supermarket. When
I get home, I ﬁnd that it contains less than 505 ml. Determine an expression (in terms
of a and b) for the probability that this carton of milk contains more than 500 ml. (ii) Over the years, I have bought a very large number of cartons of milk, all chosen at
random, from this supermarket. 70% of the cartons I have bought have contained at
most 505 ml of milk. Of all the cartons that have contained at least 495 ml of milk, one
third of them have contained fullfat milk. Use this information to estimate the values of a and b. 9465 s05 [Turn over .. , M A. .. ,ww, 8 14 The random variable X can take the value X = — l, and also any value in the range 0 g X < 00.
