question 58 - the one about killograms and newtons and it asked what is the scale of wieght - wat was the answer?
Kilograms. Mass is measured by newtons. Weight is gravity plus the mass.

and the textbook says......... mass=Kg, weight = newtons (i rememba is because weight is to do with earth, and newtons has to do with that)

I put velocity. Velocity is the speed of direction or something like that.
Yeah, but i think the question was what is the name of the change in speed and/or direction of an object. That would be acceleration.

The answer was temperature (red giants have lower temp)

The answer is Newtons i'm positive. force is measured in newtons and so weight is maeasured in newtons due to gravity. MAas= kg. If you measured your weight on a scale, it'd be alot. So mass = kg gg, weight = newtons gg.

That newtons/kg question, what exactly was the question?
I put kilograms.. I completely forgot about the weight thing. *Sigh*. Now I can be slightly worried for a month.

Yeah I was stumped by it. I thought there was some error or something that there was no indicator of the units. But then I was all oh. . . OH! Newtons :p

i'm pretty sure that acceleration was right...thats what i put, coz i remember our teacher specifically telling us that acceleration could be both a change in speed and a change in direction...thank god, coz i wouldn't have known otherwise.

Hark, I told you not to study too much. I mean you took 3 whole days off school plus the weekend to study for the school certificate. Me, I took Sunday to study and I think I did pretty good.

That reminds me...some of the supervisors at my exam were walking about bare foot in the hall. Talk about comfort :\
I remember some lady giving kinda like death stares or something and shaking her head a bit. I wander what she was thinking...this kid's going to fail, fail, fail, pass, fail.
haha, I noticed that aswell. I guess they were getting a little too comfortable eh? :rofl:

I didn't study full-stop. I think my marks will reflect that, though.
