Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

It was 20.4 for radius, but for the percentage it was to 2 sig figs 16.7 = 17%
I got 16.7 too, but people were saying 33%?

I got 16.7% for the percentage charge decrease question.

20.4m for the radius of the path of the bike.
2.09ms^-1 for speed of bike.

Some multiple choice answers I remember:

1. Something to do with magnetic field causing circular motion
Area under graph = change in momentum
1/root(6)
Half charge on one of particles
Anti-up Down
0.024N
It was the maximum decrease so I rounded down to 16.6%... Not sure if that's right though

I got 20.5m for the radius of the track

I got 1/6 for the ratio

Apart from that I think we got the same?
3. For the question where you had to show the particle does pass the speed of light, did you had to draw a line of the best fit and show it levelled off. If you just read off the max velocity and said its less than c would you get the mark

I got slightly under spacing value too, but what does this mean for diffraction?
Close to the spacing of the atom, so maximum diffraction

5. Was last year's paper easier?

Last year's boundaries:

A* - 67
A - 62
B - 57
C - 53

62 - A*
57 - A
52 - B

Any predictions? I think this years had some tricky Q's

I got 7.6m or something for the radius? How did yous do it?
Yeah I got that too, but it was wrong. We calculated the force of the hypotenuse rather the horizontal
7. How many of you took the difference of the 2 charges. Divided it by the maximum charge and multiplied it by 100. I got 80 %

Lol I just wrote it will diffract as it's less than the spacing. Idk haha

I got 33 how did you work it out?

I did that method but got 33%???
11. For the percentage one, what I did was get 2.8 and 4.2mm (to the best I can remember) for the two values of d between plates, used the given formula to obtain C for both of these values, then used the other relevant equations to get 66% difference? Can someone tell me where I've gone wrong?
12. The people who got 33% worked out the maximum distance, so the lowest to the highest, so the distance was twice what was necessary I think?

But the minimum distance that was necessary was 0.7mm
13. For conservation of charge. Charge before and after 0 because hydrogen becomes positively charged?

same

I found the capacitance when the silicon plate or probe or whatever was 2.5 mm away, and then found the charge stored at that capacitance. I then found the charge stored when the probe was 2.5 + 0.77 mm away using he same method, found the difference and divided that by the charge at 2.5 mm

I'm not overly sure but it said the maximum percentage decrease. To would out the percentage decrease wouldn't you find the difference between the biggest and largest value of the C. Then divide by the largest and times by 100%
17. You had to find the charge difference when the plates were at 3.5mm and 4.2mm, not 2.8mm and 4.2mm

I got 80% too! doesn't seem like many people got the same though
19. Answers for the Linac 1 and 2 markers?

I have no clue there is a real mix of answers for that question
