    Also what about the question about the washing machine where it gave you a circuit with a transistor and you had to explain how the heating element would switch off?
    I wrote that the thermistor detects when the temperature of the water reaches 40 degrees. Then the resistance of the thermistor increased which means the current was going to reduce. If the current reduced the voltage would reduce as well which would eventually be less than 2.0v and then the MOSFET transistor would not work anymore so current wouldn't flow

    I didn't know what to say about the relay switch because I couldn't remember anything about that...

    Can someone mark this answer please?

    Hmm I wrote that the resistance remains constant for that one.

    The resistance of the thermistor decreases so voltage decreases and then when this falls below 2.0v the MOSFET turns off. So the relay switches of the heater

    I got 5 ohms. But the question said use all the values in the table for some odd reason so i calculated the resistance four times and I got 5 ohms for all of them
    That was what I did

    What about the question that you had to put the forces on to the diagram?
    I got air resistance
    Weight (of the person)
    Force of friction (due to the rope thing)
    What did you all put?

    Yeah I think there were a couple of methods you could have used

    I just did air resistance upwards and weight downwards

    Not sure what the correct answer was. Do you remember how many marks it was worth?

    3. Two for the forces and one for the directions

    Done Weight down, Air resisitance up.

    Lmao hahah idk what I was thinking but for the top arrow I put friction, I think the stress got to me lol. I think I only lost a mark tho so its alright

    Are you talking about the thing on the building?
    I said that metals are positively charged so when there is a lightning storm, the negatively charged electrons from the lightning will be attracted to the positively charged metal pole because opposite charges attract therefore the lightning will not touch the building it will only touch the pole.

    That's what I wrote too, not exactly but pretty close. You'll definitely get 2 marks at least

    That's a really good answer, wish i thought of that in the exam. I wrote something really stupid haha
