I got like 10.5 I counted about 1367 small squares
I got 11 for the area underneath the graph as an estimate. So I think a range should be expected?

For the last pressure question did anyone get 1.5 x 10^7?
yup

I got 11 but counted big squares then 1/2 big squares then 1/4 big squares. do you reckon I'll be in the accepted range?

Yeah I imagine they'll accept anything from like 9-11 Ns

Guys, i feel like crying... I thought I was so ready for this exam until I saw the first question . At least it wasn't as bad as F324.

There will deffo be a range for that obscure shape

for the volume used in the calculation, did you use the volume of both parts of the container (sorry i can't remember what the parts are called) or just the bigger part?

gosh i'm so sorry i know this is really vague :P hope you get what i mean

to work out the acceleration of the spacecraft do (mass of xenon)x(speed of xenon)/(mass of spacecraft - mass of xenon)

Rocket xenon ions question - I put second law but for the calculation itself I just put **** loads of things down in the hope of some method marks. It was do to with momentum and impulse right? Ofc with newtons second law.

The intricacies of this exam was my downfall.
Now a B for physics looks far off even if I ace the 4th unit - This was supposed to be my best unit!
I did the same, I wrote Newton's 2nd Law but I did the calculation by dimensional analysis to get the answer's units as ms^-2.

Yes! I nearly forgot to add the volumes... that's comforting!

I think this was what OCR tried to do, by putting the most challenging question 1st for throw people off. I'm sure you did fine

How did the acceleration change if the engine was left running?

Yeah that was my dilemma... I'd used 2nd Law and 3rd Law!

I went for 3rd Law after deliberating it. Rocket physics is a common example of it. Not sure though.
Ohh i went for the conservation of momentum thing but thinking about it yeah newtons 3rd law is probably right

didnt they ask for the change in velocity on this question? i got 11/180 as the change in velocity 11Ns for area under graph

I said it would increase because the mass of the spacecraft will be decreasing because the ions are being emitted

I was in the process of unit analysis too but I stopped myself each time I tried thinking I would be missing stuff, I did think things would cancel but I just sort of thought "meh" and did the other stuff I was missing :/
