    20/20 WHATTT WOOW, that's awesome !!!! One mark off an A, wow

    I got a b3 Soo happy with the result.
    That's really good and I knew you would get a B for sure at least because we worked so hard together lol. I swear I was on TSR the whole day everyday until the exam on the physics thread and I'm sure this year it will be the same. Well done! Do you know your assignment mark? X

    Sorry I threw mines away after the exam. Wish I had kept them they would have probably came in handy for advanced higher at one point. What's wrong that you can't understand the notes you have the now ? Maybe I can help in some way.

    Also scholar and the how to pass book are good, I would highly recommend them for revision.

    Oh great barrier reef, my higher physics exam is on my birthday! :eek:
    Lord, why me?
    *dies*
    Higher Chemistry was on my birthday this year. Due to breaking my wrist just before my highers, the exam was 3 hours and 45 minutes! :eek: Just remember, the exam is only 2 hours and a half so you can take the rest of the day off.

    That's nightmarish! Physics and chemistry make me want to rip my hair out... I should consider that it is only less than three hours, but I'm a wreck before and during exams. I just want to do well for myself... genuinely don't know how this will turn out.

    Hey guys. Hope everyone is well and they are enjoying the course. I would really appreciate if somebody could talk me through how to do question 4 (attached) - as I am struggling with Relativity and I have a NAB next week so want to get on top of calculations.Thanks everybody!

    Part (a) you have to use hubbles constant in the formula V=HoD. Remember that you use the distance from Earth as that's what it's asking for in the question and also remember to convert light years to metres.

    Part (b) simple DVT equation.

    Part (c) Time dilation formula where you have to calculate T and T' is calculated in part (b).

    Hope this helped, if you still don't understand anything don't hesitate to ask.

    Hey. Thanks for your help. I figured out the correct method to question 4a which is actually using the length contraction formula and rearranging it. For 4b I just used the normal D=Vt formula and for 4c i used the time dilation formula and got the correct answers

    Yeah for part a the length contraction equation seems right, I should have clicked on that. At Least I knew the right method for part b and c.
