    Hi, just curious as to what you're basing your grade boundary predictions on? As it's a new specification I've not been able to find any indicators of what sort of grade boundaries would be imposed on the exam. Thanks

    Fair enough. Would be pleased if they are the actual grade boundaries. Fingers crossed eh?!

    I didn't read about the diameter being 5 (lol), will I lose many marks for that density question? I still made every point about measurements etc.

    Also forgot to do velocity negative, any ideas on how many id lose for that? cheers

    So did I but it's wrong, because momentum's a vector you have to take into account the direction and as the hydrogen atom bounced off the other atom and went back the way it came you had to make that part of the momentum negative

    I'm hoping I got ~43/70 marks. Bring on the depth, I'm really hoping I can perform in that exam.

    I think you would take the first direction as negative since it is mv-mu so you would probs want the u to be negative, then again it doesn't necessarily matter which is negative; as long as one was positive and the other one was negative it's correct.

    For the one about the speed of the atom or whatever; couldn't you just find impulse on the smaller atom and this has to equal that which acts on the larger one to find out the answer. (I know that you use this to derive m1u1+m2u2=m1v1+m2v2 btw). Still got 78.2 ms^-1

    Yes - but I'm not allowed by the exam board to post them.
    Do you happen to have the OCR b to do an unofficial mark scheme?

    as low as possible please!! Think I only got about 45 ://// Did it matter which direction we put the tension in the string for the one with the weight and tension one and how many marks would we get for the I = nAve if we just used the wrong n? Thanks

    I worked out momentum and then used the formula for kinetic energy and got 79, not 78. All of my friends got 79 too so I think maybe it's that

    Why do that? That's so much extra hassle
