The attached picture is from my revision guide. It was 3.2W so it would have been 0.0032kW. Also, 1075p would have been quite expensive for just a couple of minutes of electricity for the computer
The answer must be 10.8p then when rounded up.
2. That was the worst exam I have ever done. I was prepared for it as I had done A LOT of P1 revision but I understood nothing from the paper. I thought the questions could've been worded a lot clearly than they were and there was too much maths in it!!
3. (Original post by blizza15)
i also got that but my friends are saying its wrong and they are comparing their answers with mine (they both think they got everything right)!!!!!
lol are they cleverer than you? If they're not we could have got it right!
4. The answer had to be 1p, as you had to convert W into kW when using that formula.

What
6. (Original post by arniebob)
What
1). 32/1000 = 0.032kw <-- To convert w to kw you divide it by 1000
2). 0.032 * 24 * 14 = 10.752p
3) Rounded up to 1dp = 10.8p

I think that should be right, i don't know if i went wrong somewhere :/

It was 3.2W so it will be 0.0032kW

Oh, sorry then it is 1p. I thought it was 32w, couldn't remember the question
9. ..

Yeah thats what i got as well, confused me a little though, 1p haha

Did not like the first six marker at all! Really confusing as you would think shallow water would be less dense but no. Also they snuck in a cheeky blue shift question in there.
omg, I knew it was blue shift, but we only really ever know about red shift so I thought red shift, well damn
12. What question was asking about blue shift?!??? :0
13. (Original post by the pro)

they are not cleverer than me! i mean i got an a in my previous test whereas they both achieved low Bs
14. (Original post by roshna00)
I got 1075p lmao but i think it was supposed to be 1p
Spoiler:
Show

15. Hey guys,

Does anyone know what the answer was for the multiple choice graph question about the laptop and something about it being on for 2 minutes.

I think it was B
17. I put down C but I asked all my friends and they all seem to have gotten different answers.

It was either B or D because you had to add up the amount of joules as far as i remember and on the y axis it had something like 1500 joules on B or D

I think its B cuz majority of people put B
19. anyone doing additional science this year
