On SHC so you might want to see answer
Can anyone explain June 2012 4b to me,

So hhow do you do it :P
Right let's see if I remember this:
Mass= 600kg
Angle=40 degrees
1. Resolve horizontal and vertical forces
Rcos40=600g
600gsin40 =centripetal force

600gsin40 =mv^2/r
And from there it should be EZPZ

Actually, you're right it does seem more like a Mechanics question

Would the centripetal force not be 600gtan(40)? As the component which is the centripetal force is Rsin(40) and we know that R=600g/cos(40)

That might be it actually

Can someone explain specific heat capacity to me? Like what would a high specific capacity mean? Thanks
Specific Heat Capacity is the energy needed to increase the temperature of a substance. Water has a high SHC so needs a relatively high amount of energy to increase it's temperature. Oil has a low SHC so needs less energy to increase its temperature by the same amount.

It's quite a weird concept to get your head around, but basically some things heat up quicker than others.

Simple harmonic motion is Kinetic energy and potential energy,

What form(s) does the potential energy take?

If it is a mass-spring system, along with G.P.E. you would also consider the elastic potential energy of the spring.

Yeah, went through it again, it is 600gtan(40)
Thankss

Quizlet.com for a website with 'packs' of flashcards. Also similar but different revision methods for definitions/ descriptions; 'scatter' is good, 'space race' for picking your speed up. Useful for not wasting too much time on one answer qs

Did it again + got 22.1ms[sup]-1[sup] to 3sf.
How are you doing it?

Can anyone explain June 2012 4b to me,
(i) A-B: Increase temp. therefore increase in Kinetic energy of particles, with little/no change in potential energies as seperation between molecules is unchanged

B-C: Opposite pretty much.... so increase in PE, and NO change in KE

(ii) As you can see in the two positive grad. lines the second one has a smaller grad. compared to the first one.... therefore cos E=mc(delta T) & so C=E/m(DELTA T)
hence for the first one (cos the gradient is greater) the c will be smaller as they are inversely proportional
so.. specific heat capacity in liquid state is GREATER than c in solid state.

I got 600v2=600gtan(40)*50
So then v2=50gtan(40)

Finally v=(411.578....)1/2= 20.3 ms-1 (3.S.F.)

I'm so stupid, I forgot the tan(40)
Yeah. You're right

I don't get why it's tan. I've done a diagram.

I thought so at first but the only thing is that R is put in terms of mg.
Rcos 40 = mg ---> R= mg/cos40

Sub that into Rsin40 and you get mgsin40/cos40 ---> mgtan40

Ok I get it now. But don't you think this is beyond the spec? I didn't know that sin/cos = tan, and it's not on the formula sheet.

It was an extension question to be honest.
I don't know, does OCR assume everyone taking A2 Physics has taken AS Maths?

they are not allowed to. they have to assume no students take maths a level hence there is no calculus involved.
