1. Who is ready to ace Physics
2. (Original post by homeland.lsw)
What part of P3 exactly
Transformers and Fleming's left hand rule. Which way does the current pass through ? Really don't like Physics

I hate the final calculation parts of the Lenses section.
Spoiler:
Show
I am literally only starting P3 now. The worst thing is P3 is the hardest (but also the best) part of the entire spec, and I really wanna do well.

Flemings left hand rule?
ThuMb - Movement (of wire or whatever)
First finger - Field (direction of magnetic field)
SeCond finger- Direction of Current

And transformers?
Step up, increases the pd from the first coil to the second coil
Step down, decreases the pd from the first coil to the second coil

There is a soft iron core in the centre (as it is magnetic)

An alternating current is passed through the primary coils, it produces a magnetic field that continuously changes direction. The soft iron core increases the strength of the magnetic field. The secondary coil cuts through the changing magnetic field, inducing an alternating potential difference across the ends of the coil.

Like magnification?

Like magnification?
Yep.
7. (Original post by ||TheUnknown||)
Yep.
it's just IMAGE height over OBJECT height

and to calculate POWER (IN DIOPTRES) it's 1 over the FOCAL LENGTH (which is in metres)
8. Worst exams I've ever done in my life BY FAR.
Anyone else?

Ohhhhh yes. Awful.
11. At least we're all in the same boat: if we found it hard, it's likely that the grade boundaries will be VERY low indeed

Agreed!!!._.
17. P2 was some sort of fresh hell.
18. so true
19. Both of them were as bad as each other
