1. How did everyone find it
That 8 marker... 😂
2. I ****ed up ggwp
3. Anyone get 3mu/4 for the tantheta
And 3.5m or something like that for the last question.

You were supposed to add 4m to that

Ahhh at least i was on the right track lol
I found somwthing like 18m from R then took away 15m (R to Q) :s
I hope i get method marks haha i had like 3 pages of working for it.
6. Anyone get root 5ag for the 4 marker least value of mu.

Grade boundaries for an A* anyone?
65 last year. I think similar to 2015 maybe a higher ??

I got 3.58 of the distance from A but they wanted the distance from Q so i got 7.58

i got root 5ag, did you say tension at the top was greater than 0?
9. I got tan(theta)=(1-2u^2)/4u
10. I drew the ladder diagram incorrectly, would I get consequential for the part afterwards?
11. Some more of what i can remember. Put me out of misery guys haha
Tension 6g
Angle theta was 41.4 degrees
Radius 3. Something m idk. I just resolved horizbtally.

Least value of tension I just put T=0
Then u = root 5ag :/

Tried to simplify it down. Probably incorrectly.
Ive probably cancelled wrong or somethibg
I resolved vertically, horizontally moments about base. Lol idk

Differential equation i wasnt sure. The constant lambda cancels right?
V= Ue^gt

12.7m/s for somwthing
T=1.26s for force when due south.

Centre of mass angle like 16.1 degrees??
I just used the 15cm and the other cm.

i hope i havent dropped too many D:
Method marks will save me haha

I got tan(theta)=(1-2u^2)/4u
damn i left it as 1/4u -U/2
13. +1 Git this but others got something different. Hopefully we're right!

damn i left it as 1/4u -U/2
Yeh, i think they will allow that
15. (Original post by C0balt)

I got 7.5m for the last question, where P had moved 3.5m too btw

I got 7.58

awesome =)
18. Anyone get like 105° for centre of mass angle?
19. Centre of mass angle 16.7 or something? Last question 7.5 something? For tan I got -1/2u, don't know how
20. I got radius as 2.89?
