No because when the resultant force was in terminal velocity it was a parallel line to the axis. The line was a reflection to the line on the graph above
Wasn't the first one velocity though?

even so the velocity is proportional to the resultant force because as the velocity decreases drag is increasing therefore the resultant for is decreasing

Yes but acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. If you differentiate a parabola you get a straight line.

I can see what you are saying don't get my wrong, I was just wondering if it would be a curve or a straight line. It really depends on the exact equation of the line (which I thought would be a parabola), for this reason I would bet that both would be accepted.

its not created yet
I found one on here literally 2 hours after I finished the exam but then looked for it now and can't find it 😣

yh i see what you mean aswell the questions were too vague i know
6. Is teachercol going to make one?

Anyway good luck on G484 and G485!

How is your Physics revision coming along?
8. 58/59 for a B 70 for an A, you guys are bunch of normies.

Drag is proportional to velocity squared so I think it would be a curved decrease.

So are you saying you think the graph would have been a straight line?

Yes, that is what I'm thinking however it is hard to get the exact equation of the line in the velocity graph so you don't know for sure.

If the velocity graph was a parabola (which it appeared to be to me) then it would be a straight line.

yes - I've done the paper. I'll type up my answers this eve.
Pretty straightforward I thought. My students liked the paper - especially compared to the breadth paper!

Awesome, thanks!

not too bad tbh but i could've been more consistent

idk previous ms allowed like 5 different stuff for factors affecting drag for some other papers. i put down top 2 which came into my head ahah
they usually allow viscosity of air but then realised both objects fall through the same fluid so knowing the pricks that are OCR probably wont be allowed lol.
(i put speed and frontal area exposed to air)

For the crane question with 4 wires? I think it increased
YM is constant.
17. Ok so i got the relationship between x and v wrong. I put v=2x . Would i get ecf and get 3/3 on part 2 ? Thanks in advance

probably not, that was the whole point of the question
19. How many makrs do u reckon i'd get? 0/3?
20. Hopefully i'll get atleast 1 mark, i caluclated the stoppijg distance correcrtly
