    How did it go everyone? Was it better than last year's?

    Anyone else get this for the separation of variables question? (I think it was Q6b)Attachment 557305
    There is an unnoficial mark scheme up just in case you hadn't seen btw.
    Yeah that's correct.

    How many marks would i lose :s (7 marker)
    I've got my friction on the wall the wrong way up hence
    2u^2 +1 /4u not 1-2u^2/4
    I got that but I had my friction the right way round haha I'm not sure where I went wrong

    correct answer is \frac{1-2\mu^2}{4\mu}

    It would be alright if u left it as 2 separate fractions righy

    I'd say every so slightly better than last years, due to the last questions of last year's paper haha.. Nice energy question at the end on a slope with two strings & friction

    If you remember any questions I could have a go at a few.

    Last year's was a bit easier apart from the last question. This year's had more difficulty overall but grade boundaries likely higher.

    I got the same as you for the tan question, but everyone else seem to have got different

    Yeah I think we got that wrong
    What about the other questions?

    Q6 seems wrong, you had 1/lambda
    But the circular motion seems familiar

    I did 😊 Quadratic equation gave 2 solns as 4 and 7.58. 4 was the initial displacement from Q so I THINK 7.58 is correct

    Thank God, that's what I got as well! Was a bit nervous because everyone from my college got different answers for that last one!

    Actually much preferred 2015s last question, that was really easy.

    Didn't like this year's last question since all the stupid extension stuff meant that I got nonreal roots like 5 times and even when I did get real roots I still had the wrong expression for the extension (x-6 instead of x-5) so got it wrong.
    Was fundamentally easy nonetheless.

    Coming from someone who did the paper last year, the last question was definitely not easy under exam conditions. It was very messy! I haven't seen this years, although it sounds like a long energy question. These aren't too bad as long as you remember that EPE is (lambda*e^2)/(2l) and not (lambda*e)/(2l) or (lambda*e^2)/(l). I think that's where mistakes can creep in. Do you end up with a quadratic or something after equating energies? There was one like that a few year ago about a rollercoaster car I think.

    Last years question was simple resolving vertically and horizontally and taking moments, then a bit of algebra to get the result, I don't really know what one what find hard about that.
    This paper's Q wasn't bad either, but the mistakes come in with the sheer number of different places you could slip up.
    Yeah you end up with a quadratic.

    Did people get v = \dfrac{1}{\lambda}\left[g-(g-\lambda u)e^{-\lambda t}\right] or equivalent for 6)b)?
