    Well done to both of you! We should hopefully be getting 1's for the final.

    Are you taking higher next year?

    Yeah the course looks great.

    My physics teacher says it is a really difficult course, but i guess if you put the work in from day one, study as per required, then you've got a decent chance of getting a good grade.

    2 days = 12 hour half life = 4 half lives

    So just half the number 4 times

    Hey guys :-) what did you put for the question that asked you to previously calculate the final speed of the falling tile, but the following question which asked why the calculated speed was different than the technicians? I put because the calculated speed was an average? Fail!!!

    I think I said something along the lines of some of the energy was used in other ways (eg. sound) but I don't really have much confidence in that answer.

    i put that the total energy used for calculation wouldn't be used for simply speed

    Yup, I'm doing Higher right now, is quite interesting really, lots of work though, once you master the techniques of the calculations and do them over and over again, it does get a bit easier.
    Hi, what is the contents of the standard grade results envelope?

    hopefully if the pass mark is lowered that much I'll scrape a 1 in either section, good luck everyone with the rest of your exams! thankfully I'm not sitting standard grade maths today but int 2 maths in a week or so

    One sheet which is a summary of your attainment.

    Another sheet which is a breakdown of the sections etc (like for French : Writing, Reading etc).

    Another sheet which is a letter from the SQA saying good luck etc.
