but this paper is easier than any paper before？i think？

**cottonsocks0_0**)but this paper is easier than any paper before？i think？

And it's Unit 4. Max it has been before for 120 UMS is 63.. Maybe 64 for this paper but I wouldn't be surprised if it was lower

I definitely got at least 8 wrong.. I'm gonna throw (or take out) another 6 for the sake of it and say I got 61 ish.. Hard to tell because people are still debating about the max emf question, the sine wave etc. Also, I put 2.6 radians (which is 150 degrees) instead of 5PI/6 so unsure if I will lose a mark for that even though i am technically correct..

Pshh I prob lost 6marks on section A. I defo got q5 all right and q1 (even tho im still seeing people saying 1500 for a part in q1...). So I think I got 60. I actually have a chance of getting a*. Unit ****ing 5 will judge it

there was a multiple choice question about moving a negative ion in a electric field?

**saba146**)there was a multiple choice question about moving a negative ion in a electric field?

Was it that if the ion is on the line PQ no potential (answer D iirc) or something like that?

Thankfully, Unit 5 is much easier and less complex, just a lot to memorise.. Lack of past papers as well so

was this the one regarding line PQ and which statement is correct?

LOL I'm going to post and edit that unofficial mark scheme and update that! 1500Hz in SHM, you crazy!? :P and 60 is a very respectable score so well done, this is the hardest A level unit in my opinion. I got a D back in Jan but hard work pays off..

it was rev/min not seconds

25 rev/sec so 1500 rev/min

i got 3.7 and did the same as you for the tension! i hope thats right

i used the mass of the earth and the radius of the earth which was given in the formula book to find the radius of the moon

1)t root2, 2)460 and current its greater that 0.26, 3)path of electron was A the arrow pointing upwards, 4)

10) R earth/Rmoon=14

11)which one is incorrect: when spring is compressed &suspended,it has minimum PE 12) which one is incorrect: change of momentum=zero 13)moving horizontally,Blv …

1a)define shm:

acceleration is proportinal to displacement, and acceleration acts toward equilibrium (2)

acceleration was

frequency of pendulum = 0.503 3s.f (3)

time for oscilations to be in phase again = 38 (3)

2) voltage = 30,000 (1)

b) (3) i think this was the capacity was increase from X to Y. find the energy stored? wasnt this the time taken for the spark to be produced?

yes, i think it was similar:

b) i think this was the capacity was increase from X to Y.time taken for the spark to be produced after the last discharge?

then Q=CV, then Q/Current = time was ~ 3.46s????（3.46 days……rate is ？A a day）

you had to work out the charge stored and then use the current they gave you to find the time??

c) time taken for discharge will increase because time constant increases (2)

d) flash is brighter because more energy stored (2)

field is parallel to velocity

particle is stationary

b) prove momentum is proportional to radius= mv^2/r = BQv , mv = BQr --> mv = kr

c)time taken for partile to go through 1 dee = ~6.8x10^-8

d)show the time taken is independent of radius = 2pim/bq (3)

kinetic energy im MEV = 2.44 (3)

The six marker was

1. gravity always attractive

2. electric attractive/repulsive

3. both follow inverse square for Force

4. both follow inverse for potential

5. gravity uses mass

6. electric uses charge

7. only electric fields can be shielded

8. only electric fields depend on medium between charges

9. gradient of potential vs distance graph gives field strength

10. potential definition for both revolves around bringing a mass/charge from infinity to a certain point in a field and is zero at infinity

angle for max emf = 60 degrees -- this is at 90 degrees to the plane as emf = BANw sin(wt) therefore max emf is when sin(wt) =1, there for wt (which is the angle) = 90, 90-30 = 60 degreed

angle for max flux linkage = 5pi/6 = 2.62 radians -- this is at 0 degrees = 180 degrees, and N(PHI) = BAN cos(THETA), so max is when cos(THETA) = 1 so theta = 180, 180-39 = 150 degrees = 5pi/6

**The H**)Yeah and I also got 3.7

Mass of the earth is 81 x mass of the moon

Gravitational field strength on the earth = 9.8

Gravitational field strength on the moon = 1.8

g = GM/r^2.

9.8 = 81GM/re^2

1.8 = GM/rm^2

Re-arrange and you get re^2/rm^2 = ~14.89

Erm yeah I agree, never suggested otherwise I was on about the mark scheme on this thread showing the answer to Q 5 at the start of Q 1 which was a mistake.
