# AQA Physics GCSE P2 & P3 [OFFICIAL THREAD] watch

1. (Original post by MrTechGamer)
Yessssss
2. (Original post by MrTechGamer)
if that was asked in the exam probaly around half of all students o wouldve answered wrong.
Absolutely agree with you! There is always one definition question. Last year it was half life.

If anyone needs help with any topics then let me know, teaching someone helps me too!
Can you help me by explaining fully thermistors in p3 I don't understand it at all
4. P3 6 marker prediciton
Describe and/or Explain how an experiment is set up to find the Total Internal Reflection. Explain your findings

Motor effect!!!! ANYBODY!!!!!!!!
The current running through the coil around the iron core produces an alternating magnetic field. This interacts with the permanent magnetic field, and produces a resultant force.

Would i be correct in saying the following:

Through an increase in impact time, there will be a decrease in impact force, due to the momentum and kinetic energy having to travel over a further distance, thus getting lost in the process. We can also see through the equation wd/d=f=impact force (wd=work done), through the increase in distance, the impact force will decrease. Alongside this, through the equation f=ma, and a=(v-u)/t, we can see that an increase of (impact) time, this will decrease the (de)acceleration, and in turn decrease the impact force. Therefore, an increase in impact time will result in a decrease in impact force.

Would this be correct?

I only do P2 I'm afraid, sorry I should have said!

• But the resistance decreases as the temperature increases.

• Hot conditions = Reistance falls / lowest

• Cold Conditions= Resistance goes up / highest

• Thermistors are used in Thermostats and Temperture Detectors in car engines!

This is the information in P2,I have no idea if it is relevant to P3.

Hope it helps!

No because you are too right and your answer radiates A-level giberish . P.s just joking thats a very good answer , that would definitley get u 6 marks.

Sorry I meant to write P2.
But thank you that helped quite a bit.

Can someone help me with thermostats.
This for P2? What information do you need?
11. (Original post by MrTechGamer)
New rumours are spreading that AQA P3 paper will be very easy , because in previous years there have been harder papers.Maybe even nice than the C2 and C3 papers .
I swear to god that better be the case
12. (Original post by Blueyy__)
p3 i think 6 marker will be X-ray(and/or CT scan)/Ultrasound comparison or +/- OR center of mass
That would be awesome it's basically a comprehension

No for p3, sorry my autocorrect got it wrong I meant transformers

Does that mean that P2 is going to be like the biology paper? Impossible 😂
15. Am I the only one who thinks P3 is easier than P2?

Thanks a lot. Hydrogen isn't produced by the way😃
I didn't write it anyway haha it t.thompson22 is who to thank
17. Guys, definition of an elastic object. Go
18. (Original post by science_geeks)
Motor effect!!!! ANYBODY!!!!!!!!
The motor effect is when a wire carrying a current is placed in a magnetic field and experiences a force as a result. As the current flows through the opposite sides of the coil in opposite directions, opposite forces act on each side of the coil- 1 up and 1 down which leads to the coil rotating.

Guys, definition of an elastic object. Go
An object that stores elastic potential energy when squashed or stretched
20. more scared about p2 than p3 tbh
