    I am almost certain this will come up but I hate those multiple choice questions when it says which is correct, A. i and ii B i only C. ii and iii etc
    I always know at least one of them is correct but it always pairs up with another one that I don't know .

    I wish nothing about Background radiation comes up

    In terms of background radiation they might ask you to give examples of it. For example, rocks emit a radioactive gas called Radon which contributes to the background radiation. Animals emit some radiation too. Cosmic rays i.e radiation from space can reach the earth too. Plants can absorb the radon gas from the rocks from the soil and emit radiation too. Does that help?

    I'm not good at open ended questions, what could I do to improve on this ?

    Do we need to know what a critical angle is ? I did an experiment on it in class

    Actually i'm not too sure it's in the course? I checked my how to pass book and it's not there, and it's not in the SQA course notes either? But it's on the BBC Bitesize website?

    Any recommendations? Should we learn it or not? I vaguely remember doing anything of critical angles/total internal reflection in class tbh???

    We also did it as an experiment but that was it. I think I'm just going to leave it out... I mean what are the chances of them asking a question about it ?

    Knowing my luck they probably will, haha

    I'm going to be at school for 9am tomorrow so any confusions I can quickly ask my teacher and post here if we are unsure of anything

    No you don't.

    3A = 720W
    13A = Above 720W

    Critical angles, total internal angles etc etc are NOT in the course. The only thing you need to know is how to identify the angle of incidence and refraction.

    Awwww thank you - i glanced over the topic and it looks quite difficult to understand. Glad it's not in the course

    I was taught that the rules were 3A<700W 13>700W... If we do have a question like that hopefully the values is the 700 range.

    Made a mistake, meant to say a 3A fuse is used for appliances rated up to 720W so 400W would use 3A etc etc

    In the course notes it states:
    3A fuse formost appliances rated up to 720W, 13A fuse forappliances rated over 720W

    I guess ur teacher said 700W, because it's closer to 700 maybe lol

    Yeah, I should probably use what it says in the course notes... Thanks Man !

    Do we need to know, what a perfect bounce of a ball looks like on a graph and how to interpret it in different ways ?

    Oh and when drawing graphs, do we join them up (dot to dot) or draw a line of best fit ?

    ? Perfect bounce?

    If you can do them dot to dot then yes, if not then best fit
