    when the force is removed, shouldnt that make the body go downward? so 4gsin30-fmax=4a?

    also question 5c, i first found the final velocity of the object at s=30/5, and then that was my initial velocity for the length of time that i would be above 30/5 metres. used 2u/g to get a different answer, 2.32. do i get any marks for that?

    lastly, 3c, the angle R makes with j. so i took the angle R made with -ve J. so i got tan inverse 12/4 which gave me 76 to the nearest degree. wrong too?

    you should have subtracted 76 from 180 at the end so that the answer is 104

    but they asked for the angle it made with j. 76 is also the angle it makes with j. anyhow, do u think i get any marks for that at all?

    when they ask for the angle from j, they're basically asking you to find the bearing(from north)
    i dont know if you'd get any marks, for that you'll have to wait until the official markscheme is out but i guess they wouldnt go as far as give u nothing on this question

    no

    we the force is removed it will continue moving up the plane, but it will be decelerating.

    It will come to rest and then begin to slide back down the plane.

    Once the force is removed, it doesn't immediately stop and move in the opposite direction, that is like saying when you throw a ball, the second it leaves your hand it, instead of moving away from you, it immediately moves towards you and smacks you in the face.

    In 8c, when weight is the only force acting on the body, should friction be working AGAINST this accelerating force?

    No one will know until the boundaries are released.

    Apart from the last question, I thought it was very easy, so I am expecting fairly high boundaries.
