Can someone explain when to use -9.8 as g or 9.8
It depends on the direction of motion.
I generally use positive 9.8 when an object is moving downwards with gravity as gravity acts towards Earth. I then take -9.8 for objects moving upwards.

Really it shouldn't matter as long as you always take upwards forces/ movement to be positive and downwards forces/ movement to be negative. Or vice versa: the key is to be consistent.

4. Anyone got study tips on achieving the top marks??
5. can someone explain how to do queston 4c in june 2014 paper

Same, I've been looking for one too. I've resorted to scouring the Edexcel Solomon papers and picking out relevant questions.

Ah thanks man but how do you know that angle is a and not the angle on the other corner since a was th angle from a to b and he travelled back the same path?
