    How come they continued the graph below horizontal axis and to the left of the vertical axis?

    It wasn't Big V, it was small v that the voltmeter was measuring. Because the voltmeter was across the battery

    doesn't really make a difference the comparison should still be the same, iv just represent the IR as V that's the lost volts I think...

    That's for when the voltmeter is measuring the load resistor, when the load resistor is very small pd is small and current is big, and if resistance is big then pd is big and current is small

    E=V+v , V is pd of the load resistor and v is pd of internal resistance

    I can remember the exact value that i got for the critical angle, but it was around 47 or 48... did anyone get the same?

    If you look at the pictures I had in my original post you'll see why I think it's C I saw a very similar question in the textbook
    the picture is different .. it starts below the axis
    anyway .. when the mark scheme comes out we shall see who is right
    i hope we get the grades we want

    What do people think the grade boundaries will be like and the overall perception of the paper in general as a unit 2 paper? (Not in comparison to unit 1, though I am relieved because I did find it better and more accessible/relevant )

    I think it would be higher than unit 1 ( like all previous years) should be around 55ish for an A I guess

    Guys my father is a professor of Engineering and Modern Physics in the University of C******e and he told me that the line has a negative gradient. I hope he is not wrong because the guys from C******e will fire him!!!
    Could you ask him about the very last question? :awesome:

    Thanks. I am petrified for my physics AS, I have absolutely no idea how I've done as I sat everything for the first time in this exam season and I don't even know how my coursework went.

    what did you write for how ultrasound travels in the metal
    the particles in the metal oscillate parallel to the direction of the wave's propagation
    since ultrasound is a longitudinal wave

    Ultrasounds is a longitudinal wave, so molecules in metal vibrate parallel to direction of wave propagation in a series of compressions and rarefactions.
