    There's only one thing I need to do for tomorrow now and that is to memorise all the area and volume formulas for the weird shapes.
    I have learnt all the log rules and trig identities so all I have to do is as many questions as possible so that I do not screw up like I did in the physics...

    The log rules like adding subtracting and squaring are easy, it's changing the base that is tricky. But I realised yesterday it is on the formula sheet

    WOW that's impressive
    what did you get in them?

    i sorted it now
    majority i got above 60, half my mistakes were just dumb
    they are just more long winded
    not too bad, but then again im retaking so yh xD

    I realised that on Saturday and spent about 10 minutes smiling because I did not have to learn it... But yeah the log rules are easy. I just sometimes mess up the application

    Guys
    You have to learn the geometric formula proofs
    two of them
    1) the sum
    2) the infinity

    Still struggling with volume questions.. its not that I don't understand It, it's just that I never know which formulae's to use :[[[
    Can anyone help me get around this?
    You don't know which formula to use for the volume of a cuboid, a cylinder or a prism?

    Well for starters I don't have them memorized. every question I try and do has a different shape so I don't know which formula to use.. Is it always either volume of a cuboid, cylinder or prism that will come up? If so can you tell me the formulaes of them? And also I get a bit stuck on area aswell.. is it always just adding all the surface areas to get the total area, or area of cross section x length.. ugh I just don't know

    The 4 that you can't really work out in the exam and are GCSE are:

    pyramid

    V= 1/3 x base area x height
    S.a. = area of base + area of other sides


    Cone

    V= 1/3πr^2h
    Curved s.a = πr x l (slant height)


    Cylinder

    V= πr^2h
    S.a. = 2πr^2 + 2πrh


    Sphere

    V= 4/3 πr^3
    S.a. = 4πr^2

    Ooh
    I know how to do it
    But if it isn't on the textbook or in the specification, then it's fine
