    On the Jan 13 paper, once you've worked out the wavelength, how do you work out the path difference?

    Can someone explain to me what the graph means on page 204 in the Nelson Thornes book?

    Which curve corresponds to what? There are 3 of them.

    how do you do jan 12 question 7b? The wave travels to the right.
    Describe how the vertical displacement of the knot varies over the next complete cycle
    Well you have to look at the scenario in sections. The first part of it would be when the knot moves to the maximum displacement, which is 1/4 way into the cycle of the progressive way.
    The next section would be to explain the fact it goes back to to the equilibrium position after 1/2 a cycle.
    You would then say the knot is at maximum displacement below the equilibrium displacement after 3/4 of the cycle and finall after a full cycle returns back to the equilibrium position.
    (The equilibrium position is the middle dotted line)

    The middle peak refers the to the zero order beam which is the brightest and twice as big as the rest of the peaks, this is because it is the same as the incident beam of light therefore all of the incident light is displayed on the screen. The rest of the peaks are less intense as it had been diffracted more, but they all will have the same width but their peaks would decrease the further away from the zero order beam the less bright they will be.

    in the june 2012 paper, for question 5b) iv

    can you say that the energy stored is proportional to the square of extension? and still get the mark

    the answer only has, ''energy is proportional to extension''

    but I thought that the energy stored equation can be written both as (1/2)Fx and (1/2)Kx^2

    where F = force, and K = spring constant

    Please could some one help me. What are the three Newton's Laws of motion. I'm really confused; only thought there were two. Thanks in advance.

    1) object would stay at constant velocity if there are no resultant forces on it (all forces are in equilibrium)

    2) force is proportional to mass*acceleration

    3) for every force acting against an object, there will be an equal and opposite force

    I think thats it

    At half period or 1/2 period, it returns to its original position. (At full period or 1 period, it still returns to its original position as well but the question only asks for the movement within the half period). Basically, a half period is a movement of a point within the half wavelength. The reason why it is max positive at 1/4 period is because........1/2 period=same position. 1/2 divided by 2 is 1/4=max position. Hope this make sense. If not, ask again.
    Thankyou xo

    Hey, I am just doing this past paper right now I have almost finished all of them. For this question, you will just have to draw a diagram that looks like this.

    1) object would stay at constant velocity* if there are no resultant forces on it (all forces are in equilibrium)

    2) force is proportional to mass*acceleration

    3) for every force acting against an object, there will be an equal and opposite force

    I think thats it
    *or stationary
