    Not really I just wanted someone to make sure that I was correct


    Thanks (y)
    what do you think the 6 marker will be on this year?

    what do you think the 6 marker will be on this year?

    Part of me thinks it could be mentioning about the categorizing of particles.... as in describing hadrons and leptons and further classification.


    However I think it is going to be something more like using a thermistor to measure resistance.


    What do you think ?

    i would be feel more confident if it was on particles,

    however , i think that it will be on electricity as last year it was on classification of particles

    Didn't that come up last year??

    i found this playlist very useful for the electricity section of unit 1

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...VpClPe1AKom9Cm

    here is the particle physics playlist

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...uOG4EkVKjPzFnc

    hope that helps

    Im hoping the 6 marker will be particles, but as that came up last year i'm thinking it will be on electricity. I tend to struggle on the 6 markers on electricity, does anyone have tips or some model answers I can look at?
    thanks

    I am sure you know some of this anyway but...

    I would advise to answer in bullet points ( as I do ) and it helps you to stop repeaating yourself...


    Also make sure you know how to do experiments involving resistance.... and think of different 6 markers on different circuits.


    By the way I did the EMPA for this and they mentioned a traveling microscope, of which I didn't know about but the questions about it were not to bad. However I do think it would be a good idea to look at the spec and see what you could ask.

    Hello everyone,


    I thought it would be worth mentioning I am putting up a youtube video which covers all of the spec ( as in going from the spec requirements.... so kind of skim through the key points on what they could ask you )




    Enjoy ... and good luck for everyone

    https://www.wellswayschool.com/uploa...sics_Notes.pdf These revision notes are all i have used and past papers have been going well so far .

    Also anyone have resources other than past papers or something like the solomen papers in maths.

    Guys I was doing Jan 2011 past paper and I'm wondering if there's a mistake here

    For IV) when they convert from MeV to Joules they times it by 1.6x10^-13 but not 1.6x10^-19 ?

    That's because the value is in MeV (notice the M), which is x10^6 (Million). To go from eV to Joules you multiply it by 1.6x10^-19, but to go from MeV to Joules you must factor in the million multiplication and take it away giving you 1.6x10^-13 instead.

    Could you just go over some key things I need to say for the Circuit 6 markers, im fine on oscilloscopes and anything on the particles.

    If you look closely from line one to line two, it went from 1.63x10^-13 to line two 1.63x10^-3, and that's when they take account into the factor of 10^6 of MeV

    Lol ok i just realised it was a misprint, in line two they used 10^-3 but in line three they used 10^-13 again

    Oh you are correct. That is indeed a mistake. They must have mistyped it.

    Though if you are going from eV to Joules it's 1.63x10^-19 and going from MeV to Joules is 1.63x10^-13.

    please let us know when you have uploaded the video going though the specification points.

    Thanks for your help
