    Yeah; he set the tension at A as Tn, and so the tension at C will be 2Tn, since it is double the tension at A.
    Ok for June 2012
    It says : Given that themagnitude of the reaction of the support at P on the rod is twice the magnitude of thereaction of the support at Q on the rod
    But this cannot be P=2Q as it would give an answer of 29.4
    But if 2P=Q it would give the right answer of 14.7
    So why is it not P=2Q

    well stats is boring af
    Would you say it's easier?

    P does equal 2Q. You're asked to find the reaction at Q, which is 14.7 using P = 2Q.

    I suspect that you are finding the reaction at P for your answer.

    compared to M1, a lot easier.

    Generally the difficulty of modules go:

    Decision<Stats<Core<Further Pure<Mechanics

    well thats for as level, core and further probably get a lot more difficult at a2

    Does anyone know?
    Hope I'm not missing a trick here... but surely you just suvat and work out that because a =-9.8 it must reach max height before t=2

    How good is the teacher that will be teaching Mechanics? With a good teacher, Mechanics is not hard. You need to be able to understand what is going on, but you only need to know about half a dozen things.

    Anyone reckon the exam could be harder than this (Gold paper 1)? https://2802a3b1a650824d2586fd3336bd...%20Edexcel.pdf

    I know it's a gold paper but I didn't really find it that difficult...

    nah. I hope the exam only has seven questions instead of eight though.

    trouble is it's unrealistic with 3 vector questions.
    Lift questions can be a bit tricky sometimes, if you don't think through your forces carefully.
    Otherwise for dynamics/statics just make sure you include all the forces and don't leave anything out of your equations

    I think when it's 8 questions, it's always a vector question that comes up twice. One simple one and one rather long one...

    vectors questions are pretty much always the same i think. but id still rather have 7 questions so i can have more time to check answers

    That's true. To be honest, it's the dynamics and statics I find easiest in M1. With vectors, I have to think more...
    I like finding the coefficient of friction because at least I know if I done it correctly or not
