    *Brownian Motion (Smoke Cell)
    *Specific Heat Capacity (electric method)
    *Circular Motion types (Conical Pendulum)
    *SHM Experiments ?

    I think the only two we'll need to describe step by step is brownian motion and calculating shc of metal and liquid

    Does anybody have absolutely ANYTHING they can put up to revise from? I've read the book, made notes, done every past paper in existence, done every exam style question and exhausted my revision guide...
    anything?
    anyone?

    Damn okay =\ . The old spec for chemistry is very relevant to the new spec so I have like an extra 13 papers. However, for physics about 1 in every 2 questions is relevant so I can't even give myself a grade at the end of the paper xD .

    What are you using for revisiosn?
    I am using the textbook (Heinemann-it has some exam-style questions) along with the few past papers available. Plus my teacher has this exam wizard thing where he can find past questions that are relevant and he printed them off into a booklet with the markscheme at the back to practise.
    I've also been making mind maps and pages of notes to try and make the stuff go in my head.

    Good luck all on Thursday!

    after the horror of F324 chemistry today, im not that scared, there's far less content to learn in physics, i know most if not all the equations, constants and definitions so if just do ok on the calculation questions, i should be ok

    i don't do chemistry myself, but a few of my friends did and they all found it awful.

    did anyone re-sit G481 in january?

    Yeah, that paper was bad. But, I still think physics is going to be worse.....I just don't get it.

    Ask me a question, I probably won't know the answer. Lol.

    Wait....thats in the formula book isn't it? *Looks in formula book*

    Vmax = (2*pi*f)A

    Im seriously worried htat they might put a 8 marker experiment in !! experiments ive learnt are:

    Spec heat of solid and liquid
    Fusion (using ice cubes)
    Latent heat (using kettle)
    Demonstrate N2

    What else? Bi jesh said conical pendulum WTF do you do there lol? i know i have to do Brownian as well.

    Just a question.
    In class we have been taught Gravitational Potential. But after looking at the specification on OCR and checking the formula book, there is nothing published to do with this. Do I need to revise this or can I presume we got taught some irrelevant to this exam?

    Why have you learned experiments for specific latent heat (fusion/vaporisation) and what is N2?

    The specification states we need to know experiments that prove Brownian motion and then an experiment for determining the specific heat capacity of a solid/liquid.

    I've only learned what is on the specification, and there is nothing about Gravitational Potential (a quick wiki search says its energy per unit mass to move an object?) so I'd say you're safe not to know it.

    Okay.. I just did a past paper question, asked to work out the force using 2nd law. I got -61.1N. Would I lose the mark for having a negative force, as I took a different direction as positive?

    After getting that, I would give the magnitude of the force and then the direction just to be sure.

    Good luck for tomorrow everyone!
