  • On paper B, question 1:Label these diagrams to say whether forces are balanced or unbalanced. A bike stopped at a traffic light is marked 'unbalanced'... think this answer is wrong? The bike isn't moving, is stationary and therefore forces are balanced? Would love another perspective!

    • Hi Ellencunningham7,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this one. I'll get this updated right away!

    • Hi there Ellencunningham7,
      Thank you for spotting this mistake! Our lovely teacher and design teams have solved the issue and have emailed the corrected resource to you! It will also be updated on the website very soon - I hope you find it useful!

    • A car driving AT A CONSTANT SPEED also has balanced forces. They are only unbalanced if the car is accelerating or braking.

      A parachute falling AT A CONSTANT SPEED also has balanced forces. They are only unbalanced if it is accelerating or slowing down, neither of which is happening in the picture shown.
      In other words, all four pictures show BALANCED forces!

    • Good morning Glebe_5H,
      Thanks for your comment. Our team are looking into this as we speak. We'll be in touch shortly :)

    • Hello,

      A skydiver also has balanced forces (except for the first few seconds after jumping). Air resistance and gravity balance and they fall at a constant speed. Two examples I can think of with unbalanced forces are a rocket being launched or a ball bouncing.

      In question two, the air resistance should be in the opposite direction from the movement of the object. In the case of the aeroplane, this should be backwards, not upwards. The arrow could point horizontally into the nose or out of the tail. If it points upwards, as in your answer, it suggests the aeroplane is falling out of the sky.

    • Good morning Glebe_5H,
      Thank you for taking the time to get in touch. I can see that this resource has been checked before so I will be sure to ask our design team to double check this very carefully. Enjoy the rest of your day!

      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble accessing the files. I have just managed to open them successfully on my computer. Please may I suggest trying a different browser and also do you have a zip opening software such as winRAR? Let me know how you get on :)
