    So what did everyone get for the Vector and Scalar question?
    What I got:

    Vectors: Velocity, Momentum, Weight
    Scalars: Speed, Mass
    (Original post by BP_Tranquility)
    I did the same as you
    I wasn't too sure on momentum but then I thought about how momentum can be positive or negative, which indicated direction, so I then concluded it was a vector (wasn't completely certain though )...
    Yay I chose those too

    Weight is a vector right? Phew

    Yeah it's a force which has a direction too - so vector

    That's fairly impressive doing 6 AS levels

    No idea which modules I'll be doing ...Is it possible to do (apart from the mandatory modules) to do only mechanics as your options, or do you have to do statistics and decision modules as well?
    Nope,,you can do purely mechanics modules -- but if you are doing FM with only Mechanics modules, you will struggle when you get to M5

    Brilliant- might just do mechanics then

    What's M5 about?

    Im not sure what its about...but i have heard from several people that it is by far the hardest module....in terms of content and understanding ..

    What was the missing circuit thing?



    It was 180m if I remember correctly
    The missing circuit was a diode because it only allowed current in one direction

    It was that power is the same for output and input. So it was the VI=VI equation at the front.

    Yeah it was: it asked you to use a calculation in the answer. I was going to use the coil equation, but there was no info given on the primary coil turns - but it did give the current. So I used the equation VpIp=VsIs to work out the current at the second coil

    230/5 = Primary/z

    So Primary coils over 46 = turns on second coil

    If that was what they wanted you to do, they wouldn't have given you the current through the primary coil (although this calculation may also be accepted)

    Just looked through the specification now and M5 is all about inertia, kinetic energy, angular momentum, pendulum, motion of particles with varying mass, vectors etc.

    If it's that difficult, I might have to switch to statistics...But to do a statistics module in further maths, you have to have done S1 I assume in normal maths, so instead of doing Mechanics 1 to 4, I'll only be able to do Mechanics 1 to 3, and Statistics 1 and 2...

    Might have confused myself there, oh well, only time will tell :cool:

    In maths there's 4 core units and 2 additional ones?
    Isn't it the same in further? In that case you have 5...not 4..additional units?

    There's only one compulsory module in further maths (FP1).

    I'm pretty sure it asked how you would construct it, so they were probably looking for the number of turns :cool:

    In the old past papers, by "construct", they meant which transformer would have more turns in the coil of wire... :dontknow:
