Q1)a) 'Define Electromotive force'

They didn't specify in the specification that we were required to define it, does this mean they assume you should know this from AS.

Not that I should't know it, Is it not just a bit cheeky?

they did that with F214 as well asking to define 'Kilowatt-hour' WTF

Lol I got this one wrong ... first question OORAH!

But yeah, this exam is synoptic, you had to know all of AS stuff too.

But yes, I do play the piano and flute (this has nothing to do with Physics so I will stop rambling - although wait Music is all to do with Physics - scrap that this is to do with the exam I took today)

And yes - THIS is how my brain functions.

Well the specification is synoptic! However to be on the safe side I did write down last years definition and that it was equal to the rate of change of magnetic flux linkage when induced. (Hopefully covering all eventualities!)

I panicked and wrote something like "Force giving energy to each unit charge, causing a current to flow. -Rate of change of fluc linkage" in some vague attempt to clamber aboard some marks >.< I think I failed.

He should have really put coupling gel.

I'm guessing that coupling medium will be ok aswell though if that's what you put.
Its not always a gel, it can be an oil.

Guys does anyone know what the angle was please?

Also what are we asking for from OCR? A fixed percentage increase for centres who didn't get extra time?

I did not know that...I got taught that it was coupling gel.

I guess you do learn something new every day :P

All i can say is wow...*slow clap* OCR you really have outdone yourself this year.
First you violate biology by basing the paper on ecology and asking questions that werent specified in the syllabus. :rolleyes:
THEN
You decided to whip out some uncool rate questions in chemistry F325 and just magic tang say no more. :gunfire:
BUT NO-
You had't finished. You decided to put a mistake in G484.
A mistake which probably confused a lot of people and made them turnt the page and never look back OR people ust happened to be lucky and get extra time therefore probably gaining more marks. :upyours:

Its ok. Revenge will come soon on results day. We'll show you, all us scientists will! :own3d:

you.****bags.....
:awesome:

lol convenient that i had retaken the electrons paper so knew that definition :P
i also find it hilarious that the people who were doing psychology at the same time we were doing physics were given 5 minutes for disrupting them as well XD (due to the inevitable ocr error)

I just tried to cover every eventuality on most questions!

I think I got the angle one wrong as I spent ages trying to work out why my answer was ridiculous then realised my calculator was still in radians (idiot me much?!) so I redid it but still don't think I got it right! (I got the 70 something one as I used mass instead of weight (yet again idiot me!)

However the rest of it was okish?
Althouh I was missing the appearance of quarks/ fusion/ life cycle of stars/ X rays/ MRI scans as I love all of those questions!

Exactly! I was eagerly awaiting some questions on X-ray:mad:

I think they left those topics out because they were covered in the Jan paper

what were the two mistakes?
There was only one as far as I'm aware. In question 3 c (the one about the flow of electrons between two parallel plates) it gave the measurement in 'cm' in the written bit, but 'm' on the diagram. You could only use 'm' to prove it, however some candidates attempted to prove it using 'cm' and thus the question may be removed from the paper before marking (although as far as I'm aware OCR haven't released a statement as to what they are going to do yet - particularly as some centres were given differing amounts of extra time while some centres not at all)

Whats all this talk about there being a mistake in one of the questions?! i did the ocr physics A fields and particles exam - the one where you define EMF at the start

I did that at first with the angle and was like..... AWH FACEPALM soon as I saw that dreaded little "R" which to me actually means "Well done nobcheese, you forgot what you're doing again", got it eventually though, and remembered weight which is shocking for me as I always seem to do that.

I'm just GUTTED quarks and MRI didn't come up, I spent AGES on MRI and I just love quantum physics >.<
