    I doubt they will throw in modulus etc but trig /calculus wise probs
    What do you think could they possibly throw in?
    I'm in year 12 so haven't done C3 or C4 yet - I've just learnt how to differentiate and integrate cos and sin and how to use the natural log for separation of variables

    They can technically throw anything in from C3 and C4 according to the syllabus:
    "A knowledge of the topics and associated formulae from ModulesCore 1 – Core 4, and Mechanics 1 is required.
    Candidates may use relevant formulae included in the formulaebooklet without proof."

    Erm I doubt it never really seem definitions in any mechanics papers but you should be able to understand all the principles and apply them

    Like the last part of the last question last year? It's ridiculous how you could only get 2 marks for all the workings after having resolved/taken moments. -_-

    AQA seem to do that a lot, first few marks are at a min per mark or less, then the final one or two take 4x longer than normal.

    Can some one help me with this question please ?
    I've done part a) but for the solutions for b) I don't get why "the centre of mass must be vertically below C" That's what the book states

    Can someone confident with moments tell me their technique, my teacher has taught me a variety of methods and I'm getting them confused, mainly for your generic ladder question. I mainly don't understand which way to resolve the forces, been taught in the direction of the line, perpendicular to line, vertical, horizontal, and now I'm getting muddled.

    If the centre of mass was not vertically below C, AF would not be horizontal
