2. Which of the following is a derived SI unit?

3. A student is asked to solve the following problem: An object is thrown upwards with a speed of 25 ms–1 . How high will it be when the speed is 12 ms–1 ? Which equation will allow the problem to be solved in a single calculation?

4. When beer is being brewed it can contain bubbles of gas rising through it as well as solid particles, such as grain particles, falling through it. Which row of the table correctly shows the forces on a rising gas bubble and a falling solid particle? F = viscous drag, U = upthrust, W = weight
