Part (a) earned 2 points in the alternate solution for use of the correct kinematics equation and a correct substitution of the distance d into that equation; no valid work is done

For example, if an incorrect answer to part (a) is correctly substituted into an otherwise correct solution to part (b), full credit will usually be awarded.. One exception to this

For correctly drawing and labeling T, the tension in the cord, or its components 1 point For correctly drawing and labeling Mg, the weight of the rod 1 point For correctly

If the student had brought down the first equation from part (d)(i) to (d)(iii), 1 point would have been received since that equation is a correct general expression, but the specific

One point was awarded in part (b) for calculating the slope from the best-fit line, but the student does not show the equation for calculating resistivity, and the answer is

One exception to this practice may occur in cases where the numerical answer to a later part should easily be recognized as wrong, for example, a speed faster than the speed of
