    the arrow is the direction of thrust
    also it says the magnitude of thrust is 100N

    if you dont get that I can draw a diagram for you
    thanks very much! i finally got the right answer!

    oh ok, however if they asked us present it in the format i and j, would I then be penalised if I didn't underline the vectors?
    As far as Im aware they cant penalise you...but to be safe you can figure it out in bracket method then just stick the answer down in the format they asked for, but usually in a mark scheme it says accept bracket method (or alternative)

    Can I theoretically do them with Edexcel m1 and m2 knowledge? And do they have 3d vectors like with OCR MEI?
    Have you done all of the real Edexcel papers from 2001 onwards? The specification for M1 and M2 hasn't changed since then.

    Is my working out too OCD compared to some of your working out? :lol:

    Obviously, I won't do them like this in the real exam I.e free hand drawing but I'd rather
    perfect everything neatly drawn so I can get into a perfect pattern etc. :moon:

    Also, how are some of your working outs when you answer questions compared to mine? :hmmmm2:

    would there be tension when A and B are back to there original position, or if A and B reach a height of 2L? Also if A gets tension before B does after reaching its original position first, does it rebound?
    In regards to your questions.

    (Original post by KloppOClock)
    if A and B reach a height of 2L?
    1. The question states that u^{2}&lt;\frac{1}{2}gl. This inequality is here such that the particle with speed 2u does not collide with the pulley. Hence neither particle goes above a height l from their original position.

    (Original post by KloppOClock)
    Also if A gets tension before B does after reaching its original position first, does it rebound?
    2. Both particles must get tension at the same time as they are connected by a single string. Tension occurs will the length of the string is of definite length 2l with no slack. In reality there would be rebound but this does not have to be considered for the question.

    (Original post by KloppOClock)
    would there be tension when A and B are back to there original position
    3. There would be tension if, and only if both particles were in their original position.

    Hints for question
    Split the problem into the 3 parts:
    - When both A and B are going upwards.
    - When A is going upwards and B goes downwards.
    - When both A and B are going downwards.

    Hope this helps,

    I pretty much do the same but I make the diagrams as simplistic as possible while still ensuring all the information is there. But a slight difference may be that I:
    -represent vector quantities with solid lines and use a little arrow (or arrows!) - but more on that later.
    -represent solid surfaces with a solid line with stripes on the opposite side to the surface.
    -always represent an object with a single blob of ink.
    -use dashed lines for measurements.
    Just on arrows...
    -use single-headed arrows for forces.
    -use double-headed arrows for acceleration.
    -arrows halfway along the line for velocity.
    -use bracket endings on an arrow for displacement.

    But that is much overkill for one to do. But it makes the drawings only have about 4 lines.

    just from looking at it I would guess that you resolve the weight of P and apply F=ma to it

    just set the hypotenuse to equal a mass of "P" times G to get a weight. Put that into F=MA and the P should cancel out i think


    Edit: just checked the mark scheme, P's cancel out and final answer is 8.49N

    But doesn't the weight act vertically down?

    yes but your trying to find acceleration which isnt vertical.


    First resolve the force of P. Use a weight of P*G (mass times gravity). Then taje the horizontal component and sub that into F=MA

    Just marking the M1 Solomon Paper D that I did and I have a question about the mark scheme:

    Name:  Untitled.png

    Surely it would also depend upon the size of the stone as well? How can you say the tennis ball will have more wind resistance if they don't state the size or shape of the stone?


    Would I get any marks for my answer?

    "The minimum speed required would be different depending upon the mass of either object as the resultant force of 'F' in F=MA would change which would effect the acceleration as they have different masses, therefore more or less speed may be required."

    I would have just resolved 9.8 with the angle they gave, would it have been the same answer?

    Edit yeah same answer, its because the ball is acellerating vertically down due to gravity so you can resolve
