on the june 2011 paper Q5a how are you supposed to work out the force is downwards? Obviously you use the left hand rule but i can't find where in the question it gives you the information you need. You're given the direction of the current but it just says the magnetic field is perpendicular to it, it doesn't give you its direction. I guessed and went with upwards but it's downwards. Any ideas?
yes they do, they give you the circuit, so you can find out the conventional current, and they give you the field direction, all you gotta do is stick your fingers the right way up

It does give you the direction of the magnetic field, take a closer look at the diagram.

Do we need to know that Americium-241 is the source in smoke detectors? O.o
i think so
they sometimes ask you for a common medical tracer like iodine-131

Right the random nature of radioactive decay means you cannot 'predict' when a nucleus will decay or which nucleus will decay. Isn't predict the wrong word, you can still predict but you'll probably predict wrong?

yeh thanks just seen it- i mistook those little arrows to be showing the current direction (which you can work out anyway so i don't know why i didn't think this was strange).

Thanks!

The question tells you the particle is describing circular motion so the force has to be towards the centre. So you have current and force just use your hand to find field direction.

It is, why do you think it isn't?

6bii part 1
can someone explain to me the reason of that method of calculation to achieve the answer.
Power = Intensity x Area

Area = 4 x pi x r^2
Intensity = 1400

Substitute and multiply.

An ultrasound transducer emits pulses of ultrasound into the patient/body.
The pulses of ultrasound are reflected at the boundary of tissue.
The intensity of the reflected signal depends on the acoustic impedance at the boundary.
The delay time of the ultrasound is used to determine the depth of tissue.

That is what I remember from mark schemes. If it asks about B-scans its the same thing other than it involves using different angles and directions.

I just don't understand magnetic fields 😢 someone help me, what do we need to know about magnetic fields and what are we expected to apply?

It is, why do you think it isn't?
Part d.ii, it says the lamp has a p.d. of 11.8V and you later have to calculate the current in the secondary circuit; surely this implies a constant e.m.f.?
