Do you guys have any predictions for the physics 6 markers? It probably won't be Herschel and Ritter because that came up last year, didn't it?
Generating Electricity the one with slip rings and carbon brushes.

I actually predicted correctly on Nitrogen Cycle for Biology and Liquid Paraffin for Chemistry

what do you mean 'Generating Electricity the one with slip rings and carbon brushes'? Could you explain please

In industry, electricity is generated by spinning a coil of wire in a magnetic field.The carbon brushes act as contacts with the slip rings, so that the current can always flow from the coil to an external circuit. Its basically just moving a magnet with coils on through a magnetic field to make electricity - you'll probably have to revise how to change the current too eg. spinning it faster, more coils = bigger current

Oh so electromagnetic induction ?

I thought that was p2? Why would p2 come into p1?

I think its about electromagnetic induction which is P1

Oh yh sorry I was thinking about something completely different haha

Have you finished the syllabus? What are your marks/grades on the past papers?
"edexcel only?"

bit inclusive.

But the carbon stuff thats been predicted we've never learn that, have you?

What carbon stuff? The carbon rods?

Oh no I didn't know about that haha

18. i didn't think this was on the spec?

If ur talking about the carbon brush and slip rings, I didn't know about that as well and won't bother learning it haha.

20. electromagnetic induction came up on last years paper
evidence: explain how this current is induced in the coil in the model.
