    It was in kg

    Although saying that - it would be 1g if it was x10^-3, which doesn't sound too far off an estimate for a raindrop?

    Yeah I did it but half guessed it as was running out of time. I just worked out the length of v and then compared it with f as it said the v was basically f in the question before, which I found the v was 5% larger so I think it was right :/

    Did anyone else find all the Graphene questions really difficult?
    The mass? Yes!

    The graphene question was actually the easiest imo... :/ everyone in my school was saying it's difficult
    Other than proving the first bit, which I was off by a factor of 10, I knew how to do the rest. It's a semi conductor so in PC's, motherboards as they need to switch between 0 and 1 constantly. Since a really small layer could hold 1 N it could be used in ships or stuff used to transport really heavy stuff. I got the other calculations very easily, although they weren't something I thought a PHYSICS exam would have. Seemed more Maths...

    I wasn't referring to myself, nor did I mean to classify people as smart or dumb. All I meant was even people that have 10 A*'s are GCSE's, constantly achieving top results in all the tests, found it really difficult.

    What did everyone think about the graphite masses one where you have to convert it to m3 and work out the mass?

    You mean to work out the density and compare it? (m^3)

    I've done most past papers, this one was easily the hardest by a long way! It was really frustrating that there were no questions regarding young's modulus or about the ductility of metal (non-directional bonding, free electrons).

    Can anyone tell me what they put for the lens questions, did you work out the value for V or use a different formula? Thanks!

    Also if anyone has any ideas, how far can the grade boundaries be pushed down, since last year it was 46 for an A.

    How did you guys work out the first part of the graphene question where you have to show that the mass of a single layer of graphene = something x 10^-6
