    I put the same the same and half, what did people put for the pd across the variable resistor and the combined resistances of the variable resistor and resistor?
    Pd was 7.5V and 4500 ohms I think.

    if you decreased the variable resistors value then pd across the 900ohm resistor would decrease i put
    Yeah I got a decrease in pd too. If you take the circuit as a potential divider then a smaller resistance across the parallel combination means a smaller pd across the parallel combination which in turn means a smaller pd across the 900 ohm since pd is equal in both branches.

    Just finished - what did people get for the question about the two wires in series where we had to circle the answers?
    I got the same, less than and half

    i think it was hard and easy in a way. all the questions had come up in a similar way b4 but they were all hard previous questions. basically we had a paper full of questions 7s

    The exam was unnecessarily tricky. A massive 8 marks (a grade) for a practical question. This is physics, not chemistry . They just had to ask that awkward question.
    And what's up with the hinge in the moments question?? I never knew a hinge pulled a plank downwards...
    General the motion questions were ok I guess, but the electricity was annoying.

    I agree completely! I put the wrong diagram for the practical question. I put an electricity circuit by mistake. It won't do me any good. also the electricity was annoying and also I failed on the one with the zip line.

    It was a rubbish paper . Let's hope for really low grade boundaries.
    Yep, they were being really cheeky asking for the resistance and temperature practical. They just knew it was what everyone DID NOT want. Like how the hell would you cool it down past 20C?? Put ice in it? Stick it in a freezer? I said 'add cold water'. And then there was ensuring accuracy. How. And then analysis of results? What, just draw a graph and note any trends? I have no idea what they were thinking when they designed that question.
    I don't even care if I'm ranting, that question simply earns my complete disapproval. :mad:
    On the plus side, I loved the grasshopper question and the other two (rectilinear) motion questions were nice(ish).

    I think I put down something like 120 - 50 or something

    What do you reckon the boundaries will be?

    ye it was 200sin angle which have you the vertical force of the F part. which meant that the vertical force downwards had to qual 20sin angle. cqant remember the force of the hinge though that i wrote

    If you can remember any of the questions I can give the answers to them? They might not be 100% correct necessarily, but I'm pretty sure I know which I got right and which I probably got wrong.

    Sine? I thought cosine..
    Ohhhhhhh but then again I did cos50 and it's great that sin(90-x)=cosx and cos(90-x)=sinx. It means we're both right!

    Hmmm... I'm not too familiar with PH1 boundaries. If I had to guess, I'd say that considering the Jan 2014 paper was hard, but this paper was probably harder, maybe 58 for an A if we're lucky? I mean, if it was THAT hard.

    I put 0.4Fsin(40)=0.9(22)+1.8(12)

    therefore, F=(41.4)/0.4sin(40)
    F=77.12N

    Is that wrong? Thought I resolved the vector correctly?!?!?!?!?!?!

    No way I got 58
