# 2016 Official AQA New Spec AS Level Physics Paper 2 - 9th June 2016 Watch

1. who got a parabolic curve thingy for the graph's line
2. 50 for an A maybe?
3. (Original post by GG1233)
I got that too! What should the answer have been?
I got it aswell!
4. The Moment question ranges between 0.725 and 0.760. My teacher did this problem and he told us this was the answer
5. (Original post by haes)
A lot of people around me said 2.7mm. I spent the whole night learning how to read a caliper so if I really did get it wrong I'll be really angry lol
Did you get 1.7?

Lower, much lower, Around 42, imo.

Did you get 1.7?
yes
8. That paper was so easy
They could have at least made it challenging
9. (Original post by 123chem)
Lower, much lower, Around 42, imo.
10. The answer was 5 since if the number of resistors was 4 the wattage will exceed 100W so it had to be 5 since the resistance will therefore decrease... only one mark will be lost for stating 4 though.

Lol, dont bother about 100 UMS, no one is getting it :P
12. (Original post by haes)
yes
I got that aswell and can't see why it's wrong
13. I got 0.62 in the moment question which is wrong but do you think I'll still get full marks for the following question about extension?
14. I thought the 1000kWh question was 1000000 / 36000 = 277 W = (ish) 300W, and not 1000000/365/24 ?
15. I lost my soul in that exam
16. (Original post by haes)
for the number of components did anyone get 4?
At first i somehow got somewhere in the thousands, but after a little recalculation i got 4 as well.
17. Content-wise the paper didn't seem really tasking save a few questions but I think majority of students aren't used to timing since it's the first official paper of it's nature excluding the spec papers.

I got that as well

I dont know if thats right but i put that aswell
I think it was lambda divided by 4. Because an alpha particle has 4 times the mass, so lambda = p/mv. Timesing mass by 4 makes lambda 4 times smaller.

If it had to be five rather than four then why couldn't there be an even greater number of resistors (i.e. 6 or 7 - this would surely cause total resistance to decrease even further??)
