    I absolutely hate this module and the mechanics module, have to do this both in jan grrr, nailed the electro/waves ones 128/150 but these two "easier" modules are doing my head in, i honestly can't do it aaahhhh, anyone got any exceptionally good notes/condensed list or something to help me get going?
    Im doing Mechanics and Newtonian aswell. I have got 2 Ds on mechanics so far, so Im hoping 2rd time lucky :P

    I got 128 UMS aswell on Electrons, Waves and Photons. We are just too cool!

    Haha we must be, so far in the mechanics i got 63/90 first time a C, and second time 52/90 a D, so not looking good for me probs get an E now ffs

    Im doing Chemistry on OCR aswell

    Luckily, I dont have any A2 modules this jan, but Im retaking F322 (Last June) since I got a C and could have done better :/
    I'm retaking the F322 too! I was 5 marks off an A
    Trying to make it an A overall for AS
    Any legacy papers available??

    Anyone have a copy of the Newtonian World paper from june? cnt find it anywhere... its driving me crazy!!

    I have a paper copy of both the paper and the markscheme for the june 2010 paper. I am trying to get hold of a scanner to scan it up on to this. I will do this within a couple of days. :wizard:

    Quick Question:

    F = - (GMm)/ r^2

    In the CGP book it says:

    "The negative sign shows that the vector F is in the oppposite direction to r (displacement of m from M)."

    I don't get this, can someone explain?

    Thanks.

    in most equations/questions on the paper it works without the negative sign, however the sign is there to show its direction is in the opposite direction of the radius, ie the length between the masses goes ----> that way and the force is measured for <----- that direction. Ofc you know vectors have magnitude and a direction, therefore the negative sign provides the direction, most exam questions will ask for the magnitude as far as i have seen then again i havent started physics revision yet so this could all be wrong if it is im sorry :P

    Anyone else think that thermal physics may be one of the dullest topics in the world?

    is thermal physics the E=ml E=mc/\temp etc? Because then yes, yes it is!! especially will hate it if a draw an experiment of the latent heat/evaporation/fusion thing comes up, as there's so many components and steps to it i will never be able to write it all out to get the marks, thats to say if i get the right experiment in my head

    Lets use an example of the earth and moon.

    So we could choose the earth as M and moon as m or the other way around, it makes no difference

    If we chose the earth as M, then r is the distance from the earth to the moon (the radius). Because r is a vector, it has direction and magnitude. The direction is towards the moon.

    Force is also a vector quantity

    So when we put everything into the equation, we will get the force in the direction towards the moon. So, if you want the direction of the force towards the earth, you must put a minus (-) sign infront.

    But for the newtonian world exam you can just forget the minus sign as the gravitational force from the moon on the earth=earth to moon. And in our exam you would never take distances as negative because they always say magnitude in the exam

    Hope it helps, and good luck with the exam

    The Jan 2010 paper had a question of drawing the experiment for it, I got 2 marks out of 8 as I forgot to put loads of stuff in, I hated that question :P

    Yeh i had that test as a mock, i got an E in it, which wasnt good, as i got a B in the previous mock lol. I got 3/8 on that question and literally filled out the double page spread because i read the whole experiment literally 20mins before the test, yet failed to state clearly the key points instead i wrote everything i could remember down, i learnt then that in those type of questions, just bang down the key parts measurements and there units, no sentence waffley stuff, and just sort of bullet point the experiment and state the equation and rearrange it, and for the improvements bit, read the question because how the question is structured can heavily affect the answer you supposed to put down

    Lucky you peeps. I do WJEC GRRR anyways does this module include waves and quantum physics? if so,then I might lurk around =p
    EDIT: NVM JUST READ THE SPEC. it's 482 <_< oh well anyways still ask me on any physics related question.
