1. Could anyone do the moments question??
2. (Original post by ss2012)
But the change of length will have an impact on the strain because strain is l/x and E is stress/strain

Posted from TSR Mobile
When length doubles, then the force required to extend it x metres is halved, so i don't think the stress/strain graph would change - this would make sense since all copper materials have the same YM regardless of their length

Strain will not change as extension is proportional to length therefore Youngs modulus will not change

How do you do the moments question?
I remember doing 0.15*x = 0.32*(50-x), then solving it

What did people say about the forces of graph.

For the first point I said about the drag force being greater than the weight force which means it deaccelerates.

And for the second point I put about the weight and drag forces being equal which makes constant velocity.

anyone say anything like this?
I pretty much said this too
5. What did everyone get for the Youngs Modulus value?

Around 1.875x10^11?

dv by dt is the change in velocity over the change in time which is equal to the gradient, so that would be right?..
Well i got 50ms^-2 which seems wrong to me so i dunno but i definitely did dv/dt
8. I hated this exam so much.

9. how did you guys work out the acceleration for the trolley question?

Oh god, I did 1/2b*h, from a to the end of the graph as I thought the area under the V/T graph represented the DE-acceleration. So it was w/e it was at point a , the area under there. So I did that wrong, great, I must of failed that paper hard; really hard.

When working out the density for the first question, wasn't it simply the mass divded by 0.w/e it was-0.w/e it was? I was told by other students that they multiplied it by a million to make it M^3 but it said cm^3 so I assumed it was simply correct to just put a decimal point infront...?

God, that was a nightmare compared to jan 2013, I was getting A's in my past papers but I seriously think I got an E on that.

You might have done this for a different section of the graph? Either way, you could be entitled to method marks for using dv/dt

Yeah I drew the tangent and got around 14 acceleration
Lets hope that's right, since I got the exact same answer!
13. Can i get clarification that the force constant is the same as the spring constant and therefore was k. SO in that question where it asked you to define force constant, F/x = k would be ok?

Same all of my mocks are As but my hopes for a decent grade are destroyed

I used F = kx, then substituted F into a = F/m
But now I can't remember anything else I did
16. i liked that paper, i answered every question pretty confidently, but i'll hold my breathe till results day

Sorry to hear that I'm fairly sure i messed up the density question somehow so i can't help you with that

I remember using this for A and B, then finding the resultant (2.8N i think?), then using F=ma, 2.8 =0.8xa so a=3.5ms^-2, but again, i don't know if it's right
19. Did anyone else find that paper really hard or was it just me...

I'm in the exact same position
