# AQA Physics AS exam 24th MAY and 9th JUNE 2016 (Thread) watch

Do we need to know how to calculate the Ionisation energy!?

I cant find it on the 2016 spec anywhere.
In terms of energy levels yes we do

So just hf=E1-E2??

No, paper 2 is.

I think you're mixing up OCR and AQA - AQA's multiple choice questions are on the second paper.

Guys does anyone have a list of all the experiments you need to know for the new spec for AS physics (AQA)Thanks
My textbook says mentions that these are the ones required
nvestigating the vibrations of a stretched string
Investigating interference using young's double slit experiment
Measuring the accelerations of a falling object
Measuring the young's modulus of a wire
Measuring the resistivity of the material of a wire
Measuring the emf and the internal resistance of a cell or a battery

woops sorry, forgot my exam board for a second there

that and the definition of ionisation energy, I saw it as a potential question

What would you say about the vibrations of a stretched string experiment and the measuring the emf and internal resistance of a cell/battery experiment?
9. Do we need to know the experiments for the paper tomorrow? I thought it only came up on paper 2...

You're right, it's just for paper 2 we need to know experiments, and multiple choice as well.

And tomorrow's exam is just more or less the entire course... Can't say I'm feeling ecstatic about it to be honest - good luck for tomorrow!

Pretty much yeah.. Good luck.
13. why are the specimen papers so difficult ?
anyone agree with me ?

Yeeeees I agree
For Specimen Paper 1, can anybody explain WHY question 1.2 is the Strong Nuclear Force? My physics teacher couldn't; I'm a bit unsure as to what I would put if I have to justify my answer. Thanks in advance

I think it is because 2 hadrons are interactiing with one another, and the hadrons only interact via the strong nuclear force.

can someone else please confirm my statement though^^^ ?
16. Is the content the same on both papers? Or are the modules split between them?

Ahh thank you so much! That sounds right haha ^-^

As far as I know, both AS Papers will test all of the topics/modules, so:

Measurements and Their Errors
Waves
Mechanics and Materials
Electricity

The only difference between paper 1 and 2 is that paper 2 will have a multiple choice section and will also test the required practicals

That's not the actual reason, the reason is that strange particles are created in pairs via the strong nuclear force. They decay through the weak interaction.

Thank you sooo much
