    guys, chapter 3 example 2b, that's fp3 right? what else do i need from fp3 for m4? I aint doing fp3...
    Look in the formula booklet under FP3!

    The only other thing I can think of is resolving vectors (2D collisions with lines at angles).

    Just checked the spec, we only gotta know that the from the example shown.
    https://qualifications.pearson.com/c...hs_Issue_3.pdf pg 73.

    btw would anyone know if there is a solution bank for the old m4 book? and where can i find it?
    thanks

    There isnt one and the old book is riddled with mistakes so good luck!

    Has anyone done Q3 on the M4 Mock Paper? I keep getting the negative of what I'm supposed to get in the show that... :confused:

    Your diagram is incorrect as you have assumed that it rebounds backwards but in fact it does not. I believe the equations should look like
    x+y=u\cos(30)
    y-x=eu\cos(30)
    Due to this assumption the tan function yields the negative version of the answer. The angle theta is 90 degress round from where you have it and measured from the horizontal.

    Couldn't the converse be argued though, that if you assume it doesn't rebound backwards it could?

    How do you know for sure it doesn't rebound backwards? :confused:

    edit: Also if the angle is greater than 120 degrees which would be the condition for the ball to not rebound backwards, the tangent function would need to be negative as tangent of an angle greater than 120 and less than 180 would be negative which isn't possible with the show that unless e>5/3?

    The issue is you have measured the wrong angle primarily. The assumption that it travels backwards is not the most important bit. You have measured theta from the negative direction of the velocity and not the positive end. I will post a diagram.

    Note how theta has been measured. The angle is measured as of the velocity carried on past the collision. So it is easier to assume that it does not rebound.

    I admit to an appalling diagram XD but it gives a representation right? Please just ask if I have not been clear.

    I'm on 2004 atm. Relative motion is still :confused: sometimes but getting there

    Good luck
