    Was it just me who struggled massively with this? I feel so disappointed.

    For 1b wasn't it 15??
    No i did that as well

    Was suppose to be between t=2 and t=3

    Whereas we did between t=0 and t=3

    Never seen a question worded like that before

    No, don't worry! That was seriously scary, I skipped nearly all the questions at first.

    That paper was easy but I think I messed up completly, I think I exhausted my brain before the exam, and that cost me.. Anyone know the marks for the questions so I can calculate how many marks I lost....

    My answers:
    Q1) Acceleration: 4 ms^-2 (p = 2, q = -8)
    Distance = 11/3 m

    Q2) R = 784
    P = 4900
    d = 58.1 m

    Q3) c = 10/3

    Q4) Distance below AD = 0.830
    Couldn't work out the angle

    Q5) R = 5g - something cos^2theta
    F = something * dg*costheta*sintheta

    d = ~1.94

    Q6) lambda = 30/7
    v = 10.4 ms^-1
    73.3 degrees below horizontal

    Q7) e = 1/14
    No collision because they're moving the same speed in the same direction


    q2 d was 53.1 no? i did it both ways with work energy and normal suvat finding the acc by r3esolving and what not and got the same distance so i think 53.1 is right unless i read 53 as 58

    Yeah I messed it up Hopefully only 1 or 2 marks lost as I just redid it with the equation I wrote down and got 53.1.

    1. Quadratic was and and distance covered in the third second was

    2. Value for resistance was and the power of the vehicle was and the distance was

    3. Value for c was but I'm pretty sure this was wrong because alot of others got

    4. Distance of centre of mass from AD was and the angle was

    5. Distance to the centre of mass of the rod from A was but fairly sure this was wrong too. For the vertical component at A I got something like and for the horizontal component was something like . Again, these are probably wrong lol.

    6. Value for lambda was . The angle was below the horizontal. Feel like the angle was wrong though. Speed was .

    7. The speeds of A and B after the collision were and , and the value of e was . A and B did not collide after B collided with the wall, because although they were going in the same direction, they had equal speeds and so would never meet.Those were my answers

    d had to be less than 4 lol

    These look familiar - think I got almost exactly these, hope they're right 😭

    So for the last question I wrote out part a) and part b) and got part b wrong (as my e value was not 0<e\<1). I did part a) and b) again on the next page with part c), but forgot to cross out my incorrect answer on the page before. Will i get zero marks as there are two solutions? Or will the examiner ignore the incorrect first attempt and award marks as normal?
    I think they have to mark all the attempts you make, so you won't get zero. It's written in some of the mark schemes that students can answer the question more than once and as long as nothing's crossed out, the examiner has to mark all of it. So if you can't decide between two ways of answering a question, just write out both ways and you should get full marks if one of them is right

    Unofficial Markscheme:

    These were mine (didnt see someone else posted)

    -----------------

    I saved my answers

    4
    23/3 distance

    4900 and 784 for P and R
    53.1 distance after engine switched off

    10/3 for value of c

    1.04 for distance from AD.
    161°

    Didnt save the long expressions, take moments at A and resolve vert and horiz. Yiu generate P from m(A) and you sub that back in to R(up) and R(-->
    d=2.56 (I changed this last minute, made a mistake) --moments question

    4.3 for speed? 163° bearing

    Speed of A 3/20u (left)
    Speed of B 21/20u (right)
    e=1/14
    They do not collide as rebound velocity is 3/20u

    i got 10.4 for speed and 73.6 degrees below horizontal
