Many thanks for your query.
One of the activities depends on measurements that students take themselves, so doesn't have answers - but the rest are supplied on p4.

Hi, I am a parent using the papers for my son to revise. Would it be possible at all to have answers sheets too? :)

Many thanks for your comments. 2cii) Pressure = force/area. Each tyre suppports 1/4 weight of car ie 1250 N. 5000 N/m2 = 1250 N /area. Area = 1250/5000. Area = 0.25 m2
