    It was immediately after the ostrich one!

    Something along the lines of, if the dinosaur was half of the size of the ostrich, what was its mass

    Bude you have no idea this paper is infamous now :rofl: .

    Thing is, they weren't even hard questions :lol: The ostrich just threw people :lol:

    It's pretty weird to open a mechanics exam paper on to the first page and be greeted by a picture of an ostrich

    Lol if you had to model the ostrich as a particle :lol:

    My mechanics knowledge is pretty bad thank god I won't be using it too much at university

    The first question was just to work out the kinetic energy of the ostrich which I actually got wrong somehow, I'm blaming it on the ostrich.

    Mechanics is great though, don't you do much?

    We do some in Physics, pretty much none in Maths unless you count kinematics.

    If you asked me about coefficient of restitution, I wouldn't be able to tell you what it is. Mechanics in Physics was mainly about net forces, resolving vectors, and we did some motion is fields; projectile motion, Kepler's 3rd Law etc.

    It seems quite fun, but I really like the other bit of physics we're doing - especially the derivations of equations.

    Coefficient of restitution is basically a coefficient for how bouncy a collision between two things is (1=elastic collision, if it's 0 they would just both stop).

    Mechanics is fun but I'm beginning to like stats too.

    I like it, no messing around. Doubt it though, I love Clannad too much, it's almost unhealthy.

    Maybe you should watch AnoHana at some point then - I heard it's a better tear jerker than Clannad! And it's only 12 episodes. :lol:
