# AQA Physics Unit 1 PHYA1 20th May 2013 watch

1. (Original post by Ryejd)
you are correct. I've seen this in many past papers

the mass of electrons is negligable, you never include it
Yeah I was almost certain about that. I've dropped enough marks on electricity as it is, Lord knows I can't afford any stupid mistakes.
2. What was your answer to the last question, was it 74000 ohms?

3. What did everyone put to show that the circuit conserved energy?
I put that the overall power of the circuit was 50.2W or something like that and then i took away all of the work done by the resistors and got a negative answer?
4. (Original post by lebron_23)
As did I. Not entirely sure what the other poster means, but I did the sameas you. Charge was +3.2x10^6. We could, of course, be wrong..

Electricity was killer though.. Probably dropped most of the marks available there

Any idea if there will be a mark scheme up for this, similar to how they do it for maths?
Sounds like you and I are in exactly the same boat, I reckon at best I've got 8/21 on the electricity part, hoping that I didn't drop more than 3 or 4 on the rest and can scrape an A!

What happens when intensity's constant and frequency decreases? I put rate of emission decreases until fmin.

That's what wave theory would say, but if the frequency were to remain above the threshold frequency, surely the emission of electrons wouldn't be affected at all? I mean, the only thing that ever changes anything is the intensity, and it only changes the rate of emission at that.

Posted from TSR Mobile
I got that.
7. I've just realised that I made a pretty silly mistake and mistook the ion for a negative one and put a minus sign in front of the specific charge Will I lose marks for this?

Um, no, (6/10000+x)*5000=0.75, so x = 30000 Ohms
9. My answers to the numerical questions, in order of how they were in the paper, not guaranteed to be right but just.. yeah yolo

1. 20 protons
2. 28 neutrons
3. 18 electrons
4. 3.2 x 10^-19
5. 4.2 x 10^6
6. 1.8
7. 4.4
8. 128
9. 64
10. 45 v
11. 100 HZ
12. 6.3
13. 5.7
14. 2.85
15. 1.35
16. 4.2
17. 2.9
18. 26.46 W
19. 16.245 W
20. 7.695 W
21. 50.4 W
22. 6.7 x 10^-5
23. 0.33
24. 3 x 10^4 ohms

also 16V as the division for Y, and 2ms for the time base per division

they asked for the ion, I did

2x.6x10'-19 / (mass of protons neurons and electrons) is this wrong
11. Anybody know of an unofficial mark scheme going up? )

Yeah, exact same situation here. I really really hope that I didn't do anything stupid in the rest of the paper. Thinking I may have lost a mark on the 6 marker as I only gave one similarity, and then lost at least 15 on the electricity.

I'm anxious to know what people put for the question regarding internal resistance. Question 6 I believe it was.
13. I changed 2 of my charge calculations from + to -! Would I lose marks for this? I'm an idiot I know!

Probably 2 marks if you carried that negative to the next part, I almost did exactly that, but I found out when I checked for the second time

15. For the last one, was it 6-1.5V, so the variable resistor had 4.5 V over it, then you divided that by the current to get the resistance?

16. I got stuck by far on the first one

after numerous crossing out... I went for 18 x 1.6x10^-19 because when the atom is neutral you don't do 0/mass

And it was only 1 mark, so I just thought it had to be that :/

So confused though still
17. I got 4.0x10^6Ckg^-1. I made a mistake in the previous post.
18. I got 83 kilo ohms for the last one which seems wrong...

1. 20
2. 28
3. 18
4. 3.2 x 10^-19
5. 4.2 x 10^6
6. 1.8
7. 4.4
8. 128
9. 64
10. 45
11. 100
12. 6.3
13. 5.7
14. 2.85
15. 1.35

16. 4.2
17. 2.9
18. 26.46
19. 16.245
20. 7.695
21. 50.4
22. 6.7 x 10^-5
23. 0.33
24. 3 x 10^4
That's identical to what I got. But I'm a little concerned about those ones *points to answers highlighted in bold*
20. We could do an unofficial mark scheme if anyone has access to the paper... :P
