1. (Original post by OrangePenguin)
ICan anyone remember how many marks the last question was worth. There was the question which said show it bounces back up to 2.5m and there was another which said work out the x distance displaces. I think one was 5 and 1 was three but can't remember which way round
yeah the show that it bounces back to 2.5 was the 5 marker, the show the x distance was a 3 marker
2. Thanks
3. Well, my entire class failed this paper... We found it to be horrific, which suggests that perhaps it is our teacher's fault, partly at least.. I suppose we'll be retaking next year!.. Oh well.. Anyone else know theirs was a disaster/any words of comfort?
4. I used suvat for most of question 2. I won't lose marks as long as my answers are correct right?

My whole class found this horrific too! Hopefully everyone did so the grade boundaries will be super low haha
6. Haha at least we're not alone! I agree but alas I doubt they'll go into single figures 😉

You won't lose marks. The mark scheme often have the marks outlined for energy and suvat methods.
8. does anyone remember the first 3 parts of question 2?

Thanks, I was just panicking that the question might've said 'using work energy methods...' and I didn't read that bit, I know they do that sometimes.

I thought μ is constant
12. (Original post by mathsexam2013)
by nice i mean the answer was to 1 decimal place
also do u remember any of the answers to qs4 such as the velocity of q
I think I got the Initial velocity of Q to be 5ms^-1 to the right, after working out the Final velocity of P was -4ms^-1 (4ms^-1 to the left)
13. I'm pretty sure I got the velocity of q to be 7 for the first part

It's constant but unknown. Friction is not necessarily FMax as although the system is in equilibrium, it's not on the point of sliding.

Does anyone remember what the masses of the two objects and the velocities which were given in the question (of 4) were please as i want to try to see if i can get the correct answers
P was going 6ms-1 to the left, Q was going 5ms-1 to the right if memory serves me right. P had mass 4kg and Q, 5kg I think, but I'm not sure.

6ms =>
P(4kg) -----------Q(5kg)
-------------------<=3ms

That's all they gave us
17. I'm dreaming of low grade boundaries :/ Anyone help me figure out how many marks I got based on this being what I got wrong:

everything correct up to u>=tan(theta) ----- I put u=tan(theta) (should only lose 1 but maybe 2) (was out of 3)
Got COM perimeter question entirely wrong (was out of 3 marks)
Got P=+/- 4ms but didn't know why it was -4ms (will only lose 1, maybe 2 if they're really mean)
I said block would move when it didn't (defo lost the 2 marks)
And therefore from previous part, missed out 1 force in KE equation to find distance P had travelled down slope, so got x wrong :/ (i think that was a 5 mark part correct me if I'm wrong)

To me that's a loss of 2+3+1+2+4= 12 marks lost worst case scenario
or 1+3+1+2+1 = 8 marks lost best case scenario i think!

So I got between 60-64 / 72 .... Really wanted >85 UMS :/ The dream was 90 UMS but can give up on that.
18. Just wanted to see how every one found the M2 exam this wednesday...
I thought it was so hard!

SUVAT only works for constant acceleration though

Mine was a complete disaster!!! I didn't finish a single question!!! Ull be fine if u can retake next year, just do all the past papers,it works for me...sadly I can't do it next year!! I need to get 100 ums in c3 and c4 to get an A now!!
