    I thought I didn't round but got 20.5m, did you use exact values in your calc?
    Yeah I always try to in physics

    No no no, no no no. It was D. All my teachers said D
    That's most likely because you told your teachers that option D was just newtons when there were other units too

    Question 3 was obviously D, Newtons aren't mass, can't believe you all got that wrong lol. My teacher said it was D too lol
    My teacher also said this, spot on mate.

    No no no I told them Nm-1s2

    If your teachers think that MeV is a unit of mass, and not energy, then they need to go back to school

    He's just messing with us. Your telling me MeV is a unit of mass???

    He's definitely just messing but there's the working for anyone that doesn't get it

    For the question to do with that capitactor charge question.

    If I did everything right but wrote down mm = x10^-6 instead of x10^-3 how many marks would I get? :erm:

    MeV is mass in terms of energy so just mass n00b

    V isn't constant, in fact, V is reduced when the tire is not inflated properly. It would overestimate the speed, but not because the frequency of emf pulses is greater, rather because of the calibration of the device.
    Yes the speed does change, but at any given speed the frequency of rotation is higher than what the device would be expecting for that speed.

    or to put it another way the angular frequency at the surface of the tyre is going to be greater

    You said the frequency of the EMF pulse is greater, it isn't. If the biker was going at some speed the tyres were de-inflated, the frequency would remain the same btu the velocity would be reduced, and the speedometer wouldn't notice the difference. Your point is correct, but to say the frequency is increased you have to assume that the velocity of the biker is constant.

    What was the question? guys? Forgot

    For the students calculation of kinetic energy, I wrote near relativstic speeds particles gain mass so the electrons mass will be higher than the stated value in the back of the paper. That's why he's wrong.
    for the glider one I got 0.5ms for B.
    the collision is inelastic as KE not conserved
    For the voltage required to accelerate the electron i got 4500000

    Also, what was the light gate one, I didn't really know what I was talking about.

    I think the question asking for "max decrease" implies that you can either increase or decrease from the starting point. If you use 2.8mm to find your starting point, you're already at the max so you can't increase further, therefore 3.5mm must be the 'starting point'.
    You are correct if the question implicitly says starting from the initial position
    but the question as I remembered, was
    it says it can be the allowed difference of silicon from its position is 0.7 mm
    meaning +/- 0.7 mm from the position is all possible i.e Maximum possible d is 3.5+0.7 minimum possible d is 3.5-0.7
    hence Dmax=4.2 mm
    Dmin=2.8 mm
    Question ask the maximum possible allowed percentage decrease
    so as maximum possible d is 4.2
    minimum possible d is 2.8
    the maximum possible allowed decrease is from 4.2 mm
    to 2.8 mm as
    it could be at 4.2 but is at 2.8
    hence max percentage decrease is 33.3%

    nevertheless I actually do understand your point , it is valid and logical from your prospective but

    but this does not mean that you start from 3.5
