AQA Physics AS exam 24th MAY and 9th JUNE 2016 (Thread) watch

1. That paper was hard af.

Was hoping for a lot more mechanics as ive completed M1,2,3 but almost nothing came up.

Hopefully the boundaries are really low
2. I failed. Were the 3 melted parts nodes or antinodes?

I chose D for lift and C for bungee...not sure if its right 😔

Antinodes bro thats why they melted due to the vibration
So the frequency was 2.5x10^9 Hz

Melted parts were antinodes.

I said D for bungee rope and B for the lift...
7. I don't understand the frequency chocolate question... did you have to measure the line? I had no idea you had to do that and was really confused. :/

Wasnt D the one that experienced a lot of plastic deformation?
It wouldnt be suitable for a lift cos it would just stretch

I put C for bungee tho, but apparently some people are saying D is also a valid answer

I chose those but the other way around

What did you get for the frequency of the chocolate bar radiation? 2.5x10^9?
11. I think so, 12cm

I measured the distance between the two antinodes, and then multiplied by 2 to get the wavelength...
Then used the wave speed equation to calculate frequency.

I got 11.8 cm

I measured the length across all three antinodes, which resulted in a length of 11.8cm. That is 0.118m wavelength
Frequency = Speed of light in a vacuo (3x10^8)/Wavelength (0.118)
So f = 2.5x10^9

I got that as well...
16. (Original post by NYB)
I got that as well...
Great did u get 25% as the percentage change?

No. I got 605% but I am not sure.
18. Just came home, all i have to do know is wait for the next physics paper. The test was pretty hard but i answered most of the we questions. One thing though, how do u calculate the stopping potential using energy? U are not given coulombs.. So is there some other formula i havent noticed?
19. I failed. Were the centres nodes?

Divide the energy by the charge of an electron (1.6x10^-19) to get voltage
As voltage = energy/charge as in the formula sheet
