I converted the Watts into KW and multiplied the numbers. I believe the answer was around 1.07p
I did the same thing as you and rounded to 1p. Glad I got the same I was very worried about that one as it just didn't seem like a sensible answer at the time! 😊

The test was pretty hard compared to all the past physics papers tbf. Fingers crossed grade boundaries will be low

If people have questions on the exam I would be happy to answer them
The question where we were given a cork and water.

I found the exam difficult, not too difficult; but it was way harder than the other two exams.

Induction of a current is when you move a coil through a magnet creating an alternating current that passes on charge in the coil. That's what I put anyway

Yes this paper wanted students to apply their knowledge about what they learnt in the book throughout the paper which is what made it a difficult paper really
I get that but I do think it was too different to what we had learnt so it would be very difficult to apply that knowledge through those questions

I got something like 3.45x10^14

The cork would have moved perpendicular to the direction of the wave. This is because water waves are transverse. Therefore if the wave travels towards the right/left the cork will move up and down only
