# AQA Physics Unit 1 PHYA1 20th May 2013 watch

1. There was a question which involved two resistors in parallel and one was given to you as 2.0 ohms, and the other (after working out)
was either 4.2 ohms or 4.22 ohms. The next question was 'What is the total resistance of the circuit'.

Is the total resistance just 1/2 + 1/4.22 = 1/R(total) or was there another step involved?
2. Am I the only one that got 30 000 ohms for the very last question?
3. Can someone go over the marking points for the whole why do emitted electrons have varied Ek up to a maximum or whatever it was..
I think I got it but just want to check

What was the answer to 2A?
Do you mean the proton one?
A = Neutron
B = W+ boson
C = Positron
D = Electron Neutrino

A was a d quark, not a neutron.
6. I thought this was the easiest paper yet! I just didn't get the last question! I thought the answer is 3500 ohms but everyone I have spoken to is getting a range of different answers

Didn't you have to add the internal resistance of the cell to that value? Not sure - I can't remember the question exactly... Wasn't it about 2.85 ohms or something?

you dont include the internal resistance

That's what I did, but I included an unrounded 4.22, as it was recurring.
Whether that makes much of a difference I don't know

Oh and I added the 1.5 internal resistance to the value you get from the other 2

got 2.86 or something like that

For the line of dc voltage,how many line should I draw?I only drew one on 45V!I am not sure whether I have to draw a line on -45V
same! I drew a line at 45V too.

Yes you do!

Yeah that question for A I put a down quark.

I thought the reason it was maximum kinetic energy was because the ones further from the metal's surface would need to absorb higher frequency photons to escape so the ones with maximum KE are near surface. Surely decreasing frequency meant the ones in the metal deeper in would need more energy to escape and so their emission would be more frequent for higher frequencies?
I wrote that if you decreased the frequency of the photon, the kinetic energy of the photon would decrease up until you reach there threshold frequency, beyond which no electrons would be emitted. This is because photons consist of energy E=HF. Therefore its energy depends on its frequency.

Doubling the intensity would double the number of electrons released because double the amount of photons are striking the metal surface, and one photon releases one electron.

Who told you that?
17. I did the specific charge for the nucleus and not the ion

Will I lose 1 or 2 marks?

And also, on the Feynman diagram does it matter which lepton goes on which arrow on the RHS?

I wrote it as "d quark" do you think I'll still get the mark?

yeah, my bad - I meant to put d quark.... absent minded.

As for the total resistance - you do have to add the internal resistance.

No it doesn't matter which lepton goes on which arrow. If you did the nucleus instead of the ion you'll lose both marks.
