  1. Remember me

  2. The Questions really help but I need explanations on quest 30,31,36&38

  3. Blessed Michael

    I Appreciate
    But Will All These Come Out.

  4. Is this real jamb question

  5. but the unit is not in cm is in meter read it carefully

  6. No 12 is wrong. The option with the correct answer is B 4*10^3m/s. For my claims let me solve it

    Mass =500g= 0.5kg
    Extension =20cm=0.2m
    Velocity =40m/s^2

    Using this formula
    If half cancel half we will have
    Fe ===mv2
    With this formula you will arrive at option B

  7. physics Number one is A. 35mm… it is 35.0 if the unit is in cm

  8. Thanks alot
