    As its a binary system you have to use this if you wish to do it using kepler's 3rd law (i.e adding the two masses together in the equation).
    Yh basically point c is the common centre of mass. so all the weight appears to act from there, hence why the planets orbit around that point. So consider at point C there is a large star of mass ( m1+m2) and then you use keplars law and centripetal force to work out m2(s2)

    Does it matter that I have used g=9.8 instead of g=9.81

    9.8 is fine, its 10 that they penalise people for using ;p

    I can't remember how many marks the graph sketching was, I think 1 mark. So you only lost 1 mark because the other parts of the question you will get error carried forward.
    Graph was 2 marks

    Why would the epe ke graph not start ay y=0 you ****ing retards ocr why, who is that dumb that they don't start a graph at 0.
    It's actually because the springs are always in tension.

    How much was it out of?
    I used M as M1 opposed to M1+M2, so im ****ed.
    Really, really panicking now as I've dropped so many bull-**** marks where I know what I'm doing and have a lapse in concentration.

    I don't see why they try so hard to trick us. Test me on knowledge not the ability to see through your tricks

    Do you mean 81 UMS? I'd be incredibly surprised if an A* is higher that 46 tbh

    Agree, on all the past papers I got 58+. This year I'll be lucky to scrape 100% ums. Consistently testing how well you can answer a paper, opposed to your knowledge of the spec, it's disgusting.

    for the SHC question did you have to put units or was it given ?
    For the fireman question i did 8.3gsin55 + his weight ( how many marks would that be)
    and for the internal energy i put that in an ideal gas internal energy is just kinetic energy and that kinetic energy is proportional to temperature hence IE is also proportional to temperature (would that be two marks)

    It's like this on every physics paper, most of the questions are tricks, they try to get you... It's a game.
    'Oooh yeah let's give it in celsius tgat'll do them... how about give them that as km instead of m, oh yeah baby, listen guys ive got a brilliant one for the specific heat capacity question...' - overheard at OCR main office.

    Yes. 90% is 81.

    What makes you believe 46 A*?

    If they filled that paper up with normal questions I'm positive I would have aced it. It's always enw questions you've never seen before and units they deliberately try to **** you over on. It's so stupid
