73.3 or 73.6 please do the calc again it was ->>>>>3ms and 10 down so arctan 10/3
Yeah I know it was arctan 10/3 - which is 73.3, I just wrote it wrong when I posted

You have to minus the displacement when t=2 as the question asked distance travelled between 2-3 (in the third second).

How many marks do you think I'd get for putting in the wrong limits? 3 and 4 (it was 5 marks)
I would think that you would probably lose one or two A1 marks for it, assuming your method was correct (I would think it might be M1A1 for getting the correct integral, M1 for subbing in values and solving).

It was out of 6 I think so I'd say 2 or 3 marks lost.

suvat

horizontal: s=lambda
vertixcal: s=-lamda

Fill in the other knowns, find t in terms of lambda using the horizontal (t=1/3 lambda) and then solve substituting this into s=ut+1/2 at^2 with the vertical values
Hmmm I did this, must have made a slip somewhere. Thank you

For question 7 I made an arithmetic error and subsequently got the wrong value for the speed of B meaning I used the wrong value in part b and c, how many marks would i likely loose for this.

Very true, could be either depending on how anal they are. Probably would be fine though actually
