If it had to be five rather than four then why couldn't there be an even greater number of resistors (i.e. 6 or 7 - this would surely cause total resistance to decrease even further??)
Look mate... I have put 4 as the answer as-well but i got a thought after the exam telling me it was 5...it seems to make sense but if you can justify it being 4 ill be more than happy!

Their was a question with a graph of G against temperature and you had to work out alpha, what did you get and how?
Find the gradient and then substitute any point in the equation, rearrange for alpha.
3. who got a parabolic curve thingy for the graph's line????????

I was doing simultaenous equations at first then i realised, wasted so much time though iverall

Nah g
Did you get 2.7mm then? If so how did you do it?
6. For the solar pannel one, yousee the value was 1000kwh in a year.so wat i did was For one hour you therefore had to divide this by the no. of hours in a year. Then divide this by 3600 to get per second
7. Why was figure 6 better than figure 5
8. i thiught that exam was pretty good but i did physics this morning because of a reschedule, before aqa told my school about that question 9 thing to cross out and i spent about 8 mins trying to do that question, just guessed in the end but theyll just ignore it anyway

guys why did we choose physics
What I think everyday

As their were 2 lines before the 0
11. Anyone know why figure 6 was better than 5
12. For the mass of a fuel decreasing, did people put A- less friction. I simply thought M1 mechanics here.

What was the answers for Q2 with the zero error
I got 0.51

Yes and for same reasons

Yh I'm thinking this is the right method

I was thinking that with the reaction force decreasing but the max acceleration would also increase as this is when the motive power is max and drag is zero i.e. when the car has just started its journey. So since m is lower but F is constant F/m decreases maybe?

Most ******** questions of the day: "How high would a golf ball go if you hit it on the moon?", "How big is a solar panel on mars if you want to make 100W power?"
The golf ball was easy, just use suvat and replace a=9.81 with a=1.6

did you get 3?

I got around 277 but to be completely honest i had no idea what i was doing haha
I got same but rounded to 300 because of sf
