    Cosine rule in the formula booklet?
    i got 97.2, you guys sure your not mistaking it for a different answer?

    forgot to work on time on question 1 :unimpressed:, 2 marks off?

    (also what was the question on the contact force asking?)
    It was just asking you to isolate P as a single component and then calculate the contact force exerted on it by the plane. So you just had to use R and F (which I think you establish in the part of the q before this) and then use pythagorus.

    You are wrong, put one of the forces due north, and the other with 97.18 and resolve to get the resultant and it won't be 6N.
    dude, the answer is 97.18

    you have two forces acting on a particle, top to tail them, work out angle in-between them using cosine rule seeing as you know a 3 sides

    To be honest man, it was like a 2 mark question for that part, from the amount of working you needed to do, thats a slight hint that you may have over complicated it. who knows, maybe its right, my gut tells me that 97.2 was right though. we'll just have to see

    it was more than 2, i think 3. I've done it in a slightly unconventional way that's all.

    if you put one due north and the angle between this 4n force and the other as 97.18 degrees and then use cosine rule. you will find the reultant to be six my friend

    The answer cannot be 97.18 as it does not work if you resolve the forces to get the resultant force. Put one of the 4N forces vertical and the other at 97.18, resolve and you will get a vertical as 4-4sin7.18= about 3.5, and horizontal (which is correct either way) as 4cos7.18 which is about 3.96N. Are you therefore saying 3.5^2 + 3.96^2 equals 36? (6^2)
    Do the maths, it doesn't work! The answer is 100% 82.8.

    Tricky in places, probably slightly harder than normal.

    It was harder than the average M1 exam. Haven't seen any marks I've dropped yet though

    Was alright, harder than usual. I'm guessing about 54-55 for an A?
