    QFA
    Could you, or anyone present, please offer some M1 help? I am stuck on part b of what seems to be a fairly straightforward question:

    I've tried applying f=ma on each of the car and trailer individually, and the whole system, but I can't seem to get the answer in the book (3ms^-2). Please help, this should be easy! I have been using the tension, T, as 1650N (as the stated maximum given in the Q).

    if you do trailer independantly then won't it be 1800/600?

    Consider the trailer only. When it's decelerating, the tension will act in the other direction.

    wouldn't the 1650 add to the 150?

    Yeah, I agree with you (as much as I hate to say it ), I can't really understand why it's just a week.

    What was it on? :teeth:
    :lol: I mean if everyone forgets after the week is over, the poor sods only stay safe for a week :mmm:

    Chemistry to Nanochemistry in Medicine! Like drugs, the chemistry behind it, it was amazing.

    Like because we understand Fischers (spelt wrong) lock and key mechanism, we know we can try to disrupt that in order to stop an enzyme working, like CuSO4 in Catalase.

    So we use the principal to stop things like MRSA uses "complex chemical" to construct it's cell wall, and we use "an antibiotic" to create hydrogen bonds with it so it destroys the cell wall and can't reproduce but then it became resistant some strains (very rare, but they did so by using an ester linkage in the cell wall instead of using the NH so hydrogen bonds can't form and the two oxygens repel each other due to their electrons) so they swapped a CO for a CH2 so the mismatch wouldn't occur and that's stopped the new strain

    Then he talked about heparin, how to remove it, how to detect it etc went into self assembling molecules using water and hydrophobic tails and that

    I definitely want to do a degree in this now

    It was good because it was chemistry and detailed and technical but I still understood it!

    Anyone doing physics. (OCR A my exam board)

    Okay so my specification states that

    Electric current is a net flow of charged particles.

    This is obviously correct, but my teacher believes this wouldn't get the marks in an exam.

    He says we should say:

    Electric current is the rate of flow of charge.


    Both of these seem fine to me. The second definition seems better as it is more precise. However it isn't what is stated on the spec.

    Basically, if it said 'define electric current' or 'explain what is meant by electric current', what would your answer be? Small issues like this really get on my nerves.
