    i just put the equation, then said that if the frequency was less than the fringe spacing decreases so you would see a small peak either side of the main peak
    i said something similar, that you would see more waves between A and B because the width was smaller and cause higher frequency theres more between A and B?
    dunno what you mean by frequency less so fridge space is less, do you mean frequency is higher?

    we got given refractive index an you needed to use n=C/Cs I believe
    i did that but it then asked for the new wavelength . it gave us another wavelength .

    yeah i just used like ratios to find that like for in the core and for in air, is that what you did? can't remember my answer though

    It's just: n=lambda/lamda(substance)

    great , i think the wavelength they gave us was something point something times ten to the minus 9 and my new wavelength was something point something times ten to the minus 7

    wasn't it 1300nm which is 1300 x10 9m

    by n do you mean the refractive index , i dont understand where in the spec it says that sorry i must have it wrong then . do you think my answer will still be right .,

    Would the final speed of the empty lorry be higher as its driving force will be constant, therefore as m has decreased a would increase. As its the same time period a = v/t would therefore meaning it had a greater final speed?

    i dont know i thought nm meant nano metres and so was x10-9

    yeah I'm certain mine to the minus 7 too. can't even remember what the other questions were.. what were the questions after the 6 marker cause I'm sure there were some more on the same question

    Thats what I meant, i knew what i typed looked wrong for some reason - forgot the minus sign.

    i put that but im not sure if its right . loads of people are saying the terminal velocity is the same as the water lorry

    Yes, you can use n=c/c(substance) and n=lambda/lambda(substance) - basically ratios. I can't remember what the refractive index was exactly but I'll use 1.42 as an example. The answer was 1300x10^-9 / 1.42 = 9.1x10^-7 or something very similar

    nanometres is x10^-9 !! not 9

    I said the speeds at the end were equal but the leaking lorry accelerated faster therefore covering more distance in the same time period as the other lorry.

    yeah but a fat man in a car cant reach the same speed as a skinny guy in a car if their resultant forces are the same can they ?

    anyone want to sign a petition to get the grade boundries lowerd drastically so 50% is an A, seems a reasonable thing to do....
    Uhh no..
    1. why would the AQA give a **** if 300 students said that it should be lowered? They put the grade boundaries at a level that accurately reflects skill level of the student.
    2. The grade boundaries will probably be low anyway as it was slightly harder than previous years.
