    Haha thanks, I was just tossing in whatever I thought might get me the marks.

    Any ideas on the water turbine question where it asked us why the energy supplied was lower?
    I put water harder to push than air so more energy is used and heat energy I s lost in the generator coil through resistance in the wires. You?

    What was the finger one? Was it width or area?? I put 10^-4 because I thought it was area:/

    1. The water carries on moving. Therefore doesn't transfer all of it's KE.

    2. Mass of the turbines is a lot less so their speed may not be large enough for the same KE.

    3. Absolute guess but part of the water may be reflected off some turbine blades and this slows down the water ahah, I just thought I'd throw another in there.
    Good points there, I was stuck on this question for a few minutes.

    I wrote that the flow of the water was turbulent rather than laminar so the turbines weren't able to generate enough rotation, hence less energy.

    The water might have dissipated its energy by collisions with the surroundings such as the seabed and the rocks; all of it was not directed towards the turbines.

    I wasn't the most confident person on this question haha

    I put energy may be lost through sound and collision,and wind may be low - reducing speed?

    And for the flute question, she had to extend the flute right? And what did people put for the first 2 parts of that question??

    Yeah.

    1) somet like 260 cus it was 1.32 m and 340 m s^-1, giving lambda equals 257.5757 or something along these lines.

    2) ANANANA

    3 times fundamental frequency, therefore 3 nodes, all equally spaced. Antinode at each end.

    Yeah, I think so. First 2 parts I think it was 258Hz? or something. And then you draw 3 half wavelengths in the tube

    I meant frequency not lambda

    Oh got that but forgot to label the nodes etc. Was the finger area or width??

    You get 0 marks for drawing it, just the position of nodes and antinodes. Well that is how it was on a past paper. I drew it just to make it easier to write where each thing was positioned.

    Cross-sectional area.

    I sat there and worked it out for me and it came closer to 10^-4 than 10^-6 and I have relatively skinny fingers hahaha.

    Yeah, that's fine lol, my drawing wasn't very neat anyway. I labelled them like you said too

    I did everything there exactly as you put it; but I have a doubt, when I drew the standing wave I didn't get it to fit to the length of the pipe; only like 3/4ths of the pipe, will I lose a mark? I just drew it too short and realized my mistake. At the bottom I put another wave just in case.

    Edit: oh I read your later post, I didn't know that you didn't get any marks for drawing it haha never mind.

    Would it be valid to say something along the lines of currents in the water having different velocities and counteracting each other, so the resultant force on the turbine is less?

    On the precious past paper it was open at one end not the other but I think the marking points were:

    A at one end N at other
    ANA...alternating
    Correct pattern equally spaced.

    So ours will be practically the same just A at both ends.

    I can't quite remember what the question said...I think it was bringing the note down after the flute heated up? If so I put extend...mainly because I play the flute and that's what you have to do to make the note lower - literally had to go home and test it out straight away - then I based my explanation round that. I can't even remember what the first two parts where (blocking the memory since physics isn't my strongest subject :') )

    I considered writing this, but I'm not sure. It dead say the exact velocity of the waves at the top, so they may accept it or may reject it; we don't know. But don't worry.

    Yeah the question specifically said "subject to the conditions stated above", which implies there's only one velocity - the one given, so I think they'll reject the "different velocities" answer.
