    It does not say we need to know the practicals on the specification though...

    Paper 2


    Up to you if you want to revise the practicals. I've been told that it is on the paper and so does the website.

    do you think there will be alot of particle physics on it ?

    My teacher said they might compensate for the lack of particles in this paper.

    what do you mean by that ?

    so does your teacher say that there is likey to be a lot of particle physics on this paper?

    quick question:

    would you have to draw the appartus and set up used for a practical ?

    If they ask you to then yes. they might for example ask you to draw a suitable circuit for a given electricity experiment

    Unfortunately, there aren't any Youtube videos on the set 2 specimen paper that I know of, but there's a channel called ' LAE Physics ' which I find quite helpful and he goes through some of the practical skills that used to be tested in coursework but are now tested in this evil exam.

    For example, heres a video he did on calculating uncertainties ---> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrGSDHSOM5E
    Hi I don't know weather it is too late for you or not. Maybe we can all revise tomorrow morning as it is in the afternoon. There is this video, I don't know weather it is this paper you are talking about, but this is the Paper 2 specimen paper.

    Enjoy this video, and good luck !
    I definitely know that I'll be needing it

    This link was so useful!! learnt so much from it. I just have 1 question, when would you us the actual uncertainty and when would you half it like on a ruler the uncertainty is 1mm but on some questions they use 0.05mm? Thankyouuuu

    Can someone explain how you would work out total resistance of a circuit if you are given 4 resistors in a square layout and then 1 extra to the side?

    How do you measure fringe spacing!!? Can someone please explain how you can calculate fringe spacing by measuring a large number of fringes.

    To minimise errors, measure the distance from the first bright fringe to the last bright fringe (this is a larger distance so reduces uncertainty) and then divide that by the number of spaces to get the distance between consecutive bright fringes.

    Got it thanks! Also can w=lambda * d / s be applied to Diffraction gratings ?
