I got t equalled twelve too but everyone was telling me i was wrong and the answer was 5. Can you remember all the numbers in the question?
I got that too! used 3 pages of working and took 20 mins to do the whole question though!

You aren't wrong!
3. q8 for people that haven't done C4 yet!!Parallel velocities means that the gradient of the magnitude of the velocities are the same, so j/i=j/i for A and B's velocities. Do some rearranging, t^2 cancels, get t=12, use this in position vector to get 106

Quite a few people did, so we're all in the same boat here. I have a feeling it's right though!
I got that too! Such a relief! was a very challenging question!
5. Can someone explain the Q7 seven marker, the Q6 tension part and the Q3 angle part to me? Thanks
6. Yep me got t=5
Was pure chance i took it as 5

yh i tried finding horizontal and got error sqrt(1.5^2 - 9.8^2)
got error using x= sin-1(9.8/1.5) too
yeah probly cus usually the hypotenuse is bigger than than the opposite
8. unofficial mark scheme

1a. 0.4ms^-1 (3)
b. 15KG (3)

2a. p-4 i q+12 j (1)
b. p=14 q=-17 (4)
c. distance 17.9m (3)

3a. accel= 1.5ms^-2 (3)
b. velocty= 1.8ms^-1 (2)
c. angle =9 (4)

4a. V=12ms^1 (2)
b. resultant= 90.8ms^-1 (2)
c. bearing =008 (3)

5a. accel= 3.92 (5)
b. velcoity =2.50 (3)
c. max height = 1.12m (4)

6a. equation (2)
b. Tension= 43.8m (6)

7a. time= 1.76 (5)
b. distance =13.6m (2)
c. velocity to hit back of box =13.2 (7)

8. time=35 seconds (10)
distance =227m

Yay I got this so haps
10. Was T 12 or 5
If so how many marks would be lost using rong value of T but doing the rest right eg modulus
I think A1 mark M2 marks would be lost

I think t=12s for the last one but the rest looks fine

This is exactly what I did. Over the moon tbh as all the other aqa a2 exams I have done have gone shocking and I was dreading mechanics but I think its gone okay so hopefully that can boost my overallgrade

oh i dont know though as i said i didn't know what to do but someone else doing the exam did it and got an answer

How many marks would you say getting time = 12 using that method would be?
15. Can anyone remember this 10 mark question? I'll have a go at it
16. q8)
particle a:
v=u+at for i component
v=4+0.2t
particle b:
v=u+at for i component
v=6-0.2t
these velocities will be the same because travelling parallel to each other horizontally
4+0.2t=6-0.2t
0.4t=2
t=5 then sub it into the r=ut+1/2at^2 for each particle
i can't remember any other numbers but there was 32.5 and 46.25 something like that.
not sure if my answer is right but i got 80.6 in the end
17. i would've said it was a good paper if it wasn't for that last question LOL... general consensus for the last answer was 106m tho

2c0 was a displacement so wouldnt you also have to put an angle if you didnt leave it as I and J vectors

I'm sure 2c was displacement, not distance and 5c was 1.19 (to 3sf)

Full as long as you got the distance to be 106 m.
