# EDEXCEL A2 Physics EXAM Unit 4 Physics On The Move 20th June 2016 (NOT I-A-L) Watch

1. (Original post by KINGYusuf)
The people who got 33% worked out the maximum distance, so the lowest to the highest, so the distance was twice what was necessary I think?

But the minimum distance that was necessary was 0.7mm
The question asked for the maximum percentage decrease so wouldn't you use the maximum change in distance?
The question asked for the maximum percentage decrease so wouldn't you use the maximum change in distance?
No because the normal charge is when the distance is at 3.5mm and your finding the maximum decrease from this

You had to find the charge difference when the plates were at 3.5mm and 4.2mm, not 2.8mm and 4.2mm
No, doing 2.8 and 4.2 gives you a larger percentage so surely that must be MAXIMUM percentage decrease???
4. Yeah the question asked you to find out the maximum decrease in % so you had to use Cmin (4.2mm) and compare it to the capacitance at 3.5mm, the correct answer was 16.6%

You can prove it now by calculating the percentage difference between 1/4.2 and 1/3.5 as k is a constant

Answers for the Linac 1 and 2 markers?
I said for the two marker: get longer as speed increases each times electrons are accelleraated across gap by electric field. Time spent in tubes must be constant as frequency of A.C constant. So by V=d/t tubes must be longer.
And tubes stay same size as KE converted to mass. Speed of electrons increases by less/ speed constant
6. All in all I thought it was a nice paper, and physics is my worst subject

I see, it got 33% but I believe you are right.

No, because at 2.8mm the charge has increased, youre trying to find the charge difference from 3.5mm as this is the normal, baseline charge that is required

I got 80% too! doesn't seem like many people got the same though
I have got 20% instead, I though 0.7mm is the maximum you can splite so 80% will be left

But probably both won't be correct as many ppl in the post arguing 16.7 and 33

the distance allowed between the plate is 3.5mm + or - 0.7mm. So the plate at one point can be at 4.2mm and still be in range, but from the it can go to 2.8mm and still be in range. so the maximum decrease that the plate can sustain within the range give would be 4.2mm-2.8mm rather than 3.5mm-2.8mm. but either way sounds like a suitable answer, the question was too vague.

But what about if the distance goes from 2.8 to 4.2, in this case there has been a decrease in capacitance and so a decrease in charge I doubt you use the baseline

It doesn't matter too much, we should get a few marks for using equations and its only one question out of the whole paper

You seem very certain. You sure you're not just backing your answer for the sake of it? I went for 16% and then changed my mind and doubled up for 33%. Tbh, the question was poorly worded and i doubt we'll know the real solution until the official markscheme comes out.
Either way, paper was very nice this year. Could be high grade boundaries though. Similar to last year?

I got 16.7% for the percentage charge decrease question.

20.4m for the radius of the path of the bike.
2.09ms^-1 for speed of bike.

Some multiple choice answers I remember:

1. Something to do with magnetic field causing circular motion
Area under graph = change in momentum
1/root(6)
Half charge on one of particles
Anti-up Down
0.024N
same for all

Because the question said "The distance between the plates is 3.5mm" therefore you use that

It also said 0.7mm from that position. Not sure on exact phrasing but it definitely implied either way. This is the problem with poorly worded questions. I definitely agree with what you're saying and I'm not backing my answer over yours. Very much a lottery with this one
17. What did people write for 12 d with the hydrogen ion?

i think the grade boundaries will be similar to last year. last year it was 62 for an A, so i don't think it would be less than 62 for an A this year.

What did people write for 12 d with the hydrogen ion?
I put that it had no momentum? Only reason there'd be no track is if it didn't move or it decayed but I don't think protons decay, so I just went with 0 velocity
20. What did you guys put for the question about the values on the speedometer?
