Overall it was good. The bearing angle should be 3 digits there it should be 021. I forgot the 0 -_-

Damn I forgot the 0 too, is that -1 mark?

I thought it was alright, easier than the Jan12 past paper i did yesterday.

The first one went false, true, true, false right?
6. hi i made a silly mistake in q7 by not writing down G(9.8) in my formulas. i just forgot to, do you guys think i still might get the method marks?
thanks

That's what I put, reason for first was that the graph only shows speed so gives no indication of direction. And for the last one was just workings out showing it was 420m.

I thought the paper (Section B specifically) was a touch more difficult than the past papers I've done.

On the question that asked about the resultant from the floor, I use Pythagoras and got 60.1N (I think). Any idea if that's right?

I guess it ... One one guy in my class wrote 021. Lol

I didn't knw what they were asking.. But resultant force should be 0 cuz they told u that the block was in equailibrium . Therefore no resultant force.

I think i did the same, i had no idea so i guessed that you could use pythag with the friction and the normal reaction, think 60.1 was what i got too, not sure if thats how you do it though
