    ah you must have done pretty well then, i thought it was a little tricky in some places. what did you put for the question about not using electric scales after drinking lots of water?

    Why are people posting about momentum questions and components in a cirucit, unless they're talking about foundation tier? Also what did you put for the maximum speed the person can travel and what equation did you use?

    I heard the grade boundaries will be low because that exam was hard because of the lack of equations and the large quantity of written answers.

    I put for the water one it conducts electricity , I wasn't sure about that one but I think I did better than my friend who put 'it makes you want to pee' :') I'm also confused about the maximum speed question, anybody do it?

    Lack of equations? There were atleast 4 questions on the equations but you had to find out which one to use yourself(with the equation sheet provided)

    I found it really hard! Annoyed as I was expecting it to be good. For the water one I wrote that water creates lower resistance so he'd be more likely to get electrocuted.

    Compared to previous tests - if you read the specimen paper half the marks are from equations.
    On this there was 10 marks.

    How did you come to that answer, what equation did you use?

    The kinetic energy equation, I think it's wrong though, as I ended up rearranging the equation to be like v = square root of (2Ek/m)

    I used the kinetic energy equation aswell but I didn't square root it.

    I think you had to otherwise the answer would have been v squared

    I had to laugh when I saw your name is grammar and you used more than one '!' in a row. No hate though, just made me laugh
