    And inertia, time period, data storage and resolution.

    Oh okay, I just don't see what they could ask about resolution and data storage?

    It's in normal mode I've just checked... maybe I just have a dodgy calculator
    Make sure you're using the inverse sin function, not 1/sin. The arcsin button will be the alternative function on the 'sin' button. eg on this calculator ( http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...L._SL1500_.jpg ) you'd press 'shift' and then 'sin' to get the arcsin function.

    Well, in the article it compares CROs to digital storage so I guess something about comparisons

    Yeah I definitely am doing that - thanks anyway but I think I'll just use my dad's calculator haha

    S=(u+v)t/2
    x=delta*L/d
    E=mv^2/2
    E=mgh

    It would depend on the question but I'd imagine resolution would just require estimating the resolution of the oscilloscope which would be something like 0.1 divisions in both axis.
    what do you mean by data?

    Rarely comes up but x is fringe separation, L is distance between slits and screen and d is slit separation. Applies to the double slit experiment

    Right so resolution is half a sub division??

    And just other people have been saying about data storage?:/

    Why half a sub division? Lots of people are saying half but I thought it was about 0.1?

    oh all of the g941 stuff on bits and that...doubt that'll come up tbh but that's just things like no. of alternatives= 2^number of bits. Although since they didn't both testing much G941 stuff in the G941 exam I guess they could decide that revising for that exam wasn't completely pointless and throw it in

    Isn't 0.1 of a division and half a sub division the same thing though? Aren't there 5 sub divisions in the division??

    Good luck with the exam guys! When you get to A2 it will all seem to be horrendously easy

    Just be careful of units, powers, and remember, read the question
    And tick the correct number of boxes when prompted!
    And for 'show that' questions make sure you state with the curly equals that it is roughly 'x' amount.

    These are all basic things that I'm sure you are good at, but people in my year still miss them out D:

    Oh I see where you got that from. The bold lines are just the lines that are always on oscilloscopes for some unknown reason. It's the small squares that are each a division, so I guess really you're right- the resolution is one of those squares so 1 division.
    I was thinking of the uncertainty being 0.1 because that's the thickness of the line!!! Sorry my bad

    Over the 3cm part there are 4x so x=3/4cm
