How long was the time taken to produce the above strip?
2. A car, with an initial speed of $3 \, \text{m s}^{-1} $ accelerates at a rate of $0 \, \text{m s}^{-2}$ for 10 seconds. What is the speed of the car after the 10 seconds?
3. A steel ball is released just below the surface of thick oil in a cylinder.

During the first few centimetres of travel, what is the acceleration of the ball?
4. A ball is thrown vertically upwards. It lands on the top of a cliff after attaining a maximum height of 100 m in 7 s. What is the height of the cliff if the ball reaches the top of the cliff after 9 s? What is the height of the cliff? $ \left( g = 10 \, \text{m s}^{ - 2} \right)$
