    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?

    Yeah that's what I did and got 30000 ohms

    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?
    Yeah I think I fluffed that one up too, as I also got 50.2W as the overall power and then 58W as the work done by the resistors... I just kind of write a conclusion saying the numbers should be the same and therefore energy is conserved ahaha.

    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

    Okay thanks, I checked through 3 times, but it didn't seem to click until I left then exam. Damn my primitive brain!

    they asked for the ion, I did

    2x.6x10'-19 / (mass of protons neurons and electrons) is this wrong
    As they wanted the ion, and there were 2 more protons than electrons (and neutrons obvs dont have charge)

    I did what you did and got 3.2x10^-19

    Electricity

    1) 1.5X4.2=6.3

    2) p.d across 2 ohm resistor

    12-6.3=5.7V

    3) Current across 2 ohm resistor

    5.7/2= 2.85

    4) Current across R resistor

    4.2-2.85=1.35

    5) resistance of R resistor

    5.7/1.35=4.2

    6) total resistance of circuit

    Came out to about 2.85 3sf

    7) Power in internal resistance=26
    Power in 2 ohm=16
    Power in R= 7

    8) show energy is conserved

    Total power of circuit = 2.85X 4.2^2=50W

    Power of internal resistance + 2.0+ R = 26+17+7= 50W

    Therefore energy is conserved is how i showed my mine

    The figures are all rounded but I obviously was doing it to 3sf

    I got stuck by far on the first one :confused:

    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
    Did you do 18 x 1.6x10^-19 for the charge of the ion in the specific charge question?

    If you think about it like this; If there is an equal amount of protons and electrons the overall charge will be 0 as they cancel each other out. Similarly, if there is a difference of 2, then 18 of the electrons will cancel with 18 of the protons, leaving 2 left. You then multiply the charge of the proton by 2, as that's all the charge there is. Hope that made a tiny bit of sense? Usually wouldn't explain it like that but I went for something a little abstract :cool:

    2ms for X base

    and Y base 20V... I first did 10V but then realized the curve under the equilibrium so has to be double that to fit it in

    64V peak
    128V peak-to-peak
    45V for rms voltage
    10ms
    100Hz

    Wasn't sure about the "describe how you would use the oscilloscope" question, though. I just explained how I would set the axis... any ideas?

    It was all fine but I did the algebra wrong on the last question!! Kicking myself lol! should get 2/3 on it though

    Exactly what I got, did you reckon I'll get the 3 marks just by saying that?

    Yeh I has a time base of 2ms/division and 16V/division to get 2 complete cycles on the screen

    How many marks was the rms plotting question ? Didn't even do it !

    What'd you do for the first question

    & Also what'd you get for the final questions

    Thanks !

    I got exactly the same as you :yy:

    EDIT: Actually, I got the same time base but 16V div^-1 for the y-gain

    Ah well, just one mark I threw away a mark on the Oscilloscope question where they asked us to draw the d.c. one...I put a straight line on the peak voltage instead of the rms voltage for some reason :mad: Ah well, the rest was OKish
