Hi, Jodie!

"A piece of plasticine is dropped from a certain height and falls on the pan of a string balance.Explain qualitatively the change in the reading of the balance."

To do that qualitatively, you need only, in this case, to calculate the shock load of the falling piece of plasticine.

How to Calculate a Shock Load?

"Shock load is a term used to describe an intense, sudden force impacting a fixed object. Typically, these loads move at fast speeds and thereby carry very large amounts of force. Shock loads mainly apply to objects unexpectedly falling on stationary objects, such as a lift jack. Knowing how much force from shock load your object can sustain is vital with regards to safety. With a few simple measurements, you can calculate shock load by plugging the variables into a standard formula":

And you can find the details here:
Linear Impact deflections and stresses (gravity loads)

Jodie isn't required to say anything ...
just to pass the upcoming physics test
with flying colors!
