    did you do it up to the end of the graph?
    I can't remember, what was the question? Were you supposed to do it for the whole graph or up to a certain value?

    This exam wasn't easy, remember all the state school people who aren't too good at physics who did it. Some people at my school looked very confused from the start.

    I assume everyone at independent schools is good at physics with all that extra contact time they get.....

    The exam in January is a resit exam because most centres do this exam in June. Therefore, the January exam will be harder for the candidates that choose to resit. Although, this sometimes isn't the case and it may even be easier. But most of the time it isn't.

    You talking about the graph? I'm on about the 6marker
    My mistake
    (Original post by NedStark)
    Possibly but I think that's specifically for that mystery liquid. Ball A didn't have an deceleration with oil, so I don't think B should either.
    That's because Ball A goes directly into the oil, it is placed on top with an initial velocity of 0. Ball B enters with a velocity which would likely be greater than its terminal velocity in the oil.

    That's a pretty big assumption - I go to a state school and i'm not bad at physics, and there's lots of people who are very good too..

    for the question asking you to find the work done to stretch the wire, I counted all the large squares to find the area underneath the line , do you think I would get some marks for this?

    I know it was stupid of me, when I should've divided the area into triangles of rectangles and added up the areas

    i done it the AQA way, where by they count the whole number of sqaures seperately, and then all other partial squares as ONE varying from 3/4 of a square to 1/16 of a square as long as it shows a part of a square you add it as one, then you add up all the partial squares and divide by 2 giving you an approx value for whole squares, add that to your original no. of squares and times that by area of one square.

    just like in question 4)e)i) january 2012 paper, take a look at the mark scheme and look how they did ithttp://www.tomred.org/uploads/7/7/8/...s_jan_2012.pdf

    Go back and read the question, it tells you it is transverse and it told you it was a SEISMIC wave.

    It didn't tell you it was a secondary seismic wave (s wave) so that would have been what the question was asking for.
    Which question r u on about, mate. Their was a question on polarisation.
