    Anyone get something around 80,000 for the resistance in the first question?

    Hopefully if a few contribute then we can get a rough marks scheme going.

    Right, ok, I must have misread it. If I showed all my working, would I get 1/3?

    Yeah, I put mv/N then realised it was velocity, so V would have to be -vsomething.

    The time constant was 27.something, since V = 0.2V0.

    I worked out the energy of the capacitor by the area under the graph - is this valid?

    I got 2.28 by subtracting 1/2QV from 1/2QV and 2.25 by doing area so idk (idk the number but jt was slightly different, idk why they give different value)

    What did you get for time constant, C0balt?
    28.100%sure

    For my multiple choice:

    No it was not that. You had to use ln0.2 not ln0.8
    I'm pretty sure it was ln(1/0.2) so ln5? -ln0.2 also works

    (0.2)(V)=(V)e^(-t/RC) and work from there

    what was the answer to the momentum of the alpha particle:
    I remember getting the KE as 1.00 x10^something then the speed was like 7.something x 10^ something then cant remember whether I stupidly divided or correctly multiplied by the mass to find momentum.

    Also what did your graphs look like for the one about field strength?

    Yes!
    Was the question to find an expression got V?

    Ah well, damn, I misread it and got 200 (2sf).

    Can I get 1/3 for that?

    In the grade boundaries for last years paper it says
    PHYA4 PHYSICS A UNIT 4 75 54 49 45 41 37 33
    PHYA4/1 PHYSICS A UNIT 4 - OTQ 25 19(A) 12
    PHYA4/2 PHYSICS A UNIT 4 - WRITTEN 50 30(A) 21
    Does that mean that you have to get both 19/25 in section A and 30/50 in section B to get an A?

    No, just 49/75 overall. I'm not really sure why they publish a separate boundary for the multiple choice and written.
