Last day to win £100 of Amazon vouchers - don't miss out! Take our quick survey to enter 24-10-2016
1. Unofficial marks anyone?
2. Would you get any marks for doing moments about B and finding R in terms of F? I got the right answer for F but didn't substitute it back into R afterwards.
3. Attachment 551936551938 Question 7

58 for A
Dont get cheeky beta
5. I have been cursed by question 1 in FP2 and now M2!

So annoying looked at a past paper mark scheme and said M0A0A0 for wrong limits.

How many marks was the question when you had to find e and say is the collided again ?
the second last one was 3 marks then the colliding or not was 2 marks, think i lost them marks for stupid mistakes
7. (Original post by Siddhart1998)
Is it 2.56 or 1.8????
Cuz it seems to be split.
2.56

Did the question again from memory.

How many marks would you lose for finding R in terms of F? I got F right but I forgot to sub F into R. Was the question worth 6 marks?
Not sure how many you'd lose but you had to take moments about A to get P in terms of d,g and theta, which is what is asked for

1. a) acceleration = 4
b) distance = 23/3 (but I was silly and integrated between 3 and 4 so this is wrong)
2. a) R= 80g
P= 500g
b) Distance = 53.1 m
3. c= 10/3
4. a) Distance of centre of mass = 0.830 m
b) Angle made = 114 degrees
5. a) Reaction= (5g/4)(1-d(cos^2(theta)))
Frictional force= (5g/4)d(sin(theta))(cos(theta))
b) d= 169/66
6. a) lambda = 30/7
b) velocity = sqrt(109) = 10.44
c) direction of travel: 73.3 degrees below the horizontal
7. a) velocity of A after collision = 21/10
velocity of B after collision = 3/20
b) e = 1/14
c) No collision (I put that B was moving slower than A but apparently they were moving at the same speed)
don't necessarily trust these though!!! I'm just some guy who did the exam, not qualified in any way!! feel free to correct/mock me
YASSSSSSSS

Thanks for this! Looks like I didn't do too bad despite finishing M2 last week hahaha

I also got the speed of A and B to be the same for 7c

2.56

That's what I got too
11. Does anyone know how many marks question 1 and question 6 were?
12. (Original post by zandneger)
Not sure how many you'd lose but you had to take moments about A to get P in terms of d,g and theta, which is what is asked for
No you had to find R and F in terms of d,g and theta. They didn't ask you to take moments about A I'm pretty sure. I took moments about B correctly.

Attachment 551936551938 Question 7
I got the same, can someone confirm this is correct?
15. (Original post by Dex30)
what actually was question 2 again cos i got 2P = 4900 nd therefore P as 2450?
3P=12.5R+12.5(800gsintheta)
- P=12.5R
The mass of the cyclist was 80kg not 800kg

This is it, however the second equation was P = 12.5R - 12.5(80gsintheta) because the cyclist was moving down the hill.

So you get

3P = 12.5R + 12.5(40g)
P = 12.5R - 12.5(40g)
2P = 25(40g) = 1000g
P = 500g = 4900N
16. Same
17. (Original post by somevirtualguy)
Can't believe I messed up 1b!!!

How many marks would I get for correctly integrating v to find x in terms of t, and working out x when t=3

No trolls plz

Edit: Also how many marks lost for saying d=169/66 (rounds to 2.56) rather than giving to 3sf?
Bump
18. Anyone think this enough for an A*? M2: 75/75. M3: 68/75. FP2: 66/75?

Anyone think this enough for an A*? M2: 75/75. M3: 68/75. FP2: 66/75?
I'd say yes, FP2 likely to be around 67/68 for an A*, M3 probably about 69/70 because a lot found it easy, so that 100UMS should give you a decent shout

1).
a). q=-8, p=2, r=11
b). 11/3m

2).
P=4900w
R=784N
b). d=53.1m

3).
c=10/3

4).
x=0.83m below
angle= 114 degrees

5).
d= 2.56m

6). lambda= 30/7 (4.29)
speed= 10.4m
angle= 73.6 degrees to the vector i (horizontal)

7). A= 3u/20 (left)
B= 21u/10 (right)
e=1/14
no collision as B after wall moves at the same speed as A, hence never meet
I got EXACTLY THIS YES BOY
