You can talk about english whenever you want..

You can talk about an exam immediately after you ahve finished (for GCSE) as long as it is not of the exam board of Edexcel. For other qualifications there are other exam boards that you have to wait for.

Even if it is Edexcel you are now allowed to talk about it. What exam board are you?
i think i am edexcel (stupid edexcel... so annoying)
but thanks!! x

You need to divide your answer by 2 as the answer you're getting is the distance to the crack and back

Distance = Speed x Time

Speed = 6000 m/s
Time = 5 x 0.000005s = 0.000025

However, the 0.000025 is the distance there AND BACK. Therefore to get just the distance to the crack, you must divide by 2.

Time= 0.000025/2 = 0.0000125
Speed = 6000

0.0000125 x 6000 = 0.075m

Hey guys Just wanted to say Hi, have posted infrequently on this thread.

Am trying to do some Business revision, but it is so mind-numbingly boring that I defer to this thread.

And...

ENGLISH IS OVER

That's okay, we all make mistakes anyway - don't be put off my the grammar nazi''s

Just to let you know if your replying to someone (like you just did to me) press the quote button in the bottom right hand corner of the post- it ensures when you reply they can see you have. If you've been quoted it appears in the top of the screen in a box under 'who quoted me'
