    I cant remember exactly what I wrote. Something like: Increase in angle theta would result in a lower horizontal force because Tcos(theta) would reduce hence low/no resultant force horizontally on the pole so little/no acceleration of the pole horizontally... And I wrote some jack sh*t about the vertical getting larger as angle increases Tsin(theta) ..
    I hope that this is correct cuz my answer was similar!

    I agree.It was easier than Jan. for me.But many found it harder so I think Boundary will be at 52-53

    Since most of the people found it slightly challenging there is a small possibility of them setting a lower grade boundary.

    i got 7 ms-2
    I got -7.21:-) its negative cause of the direction of acceleration which is downwards

    For steel I said steel has high tensile strength..etc. Is that okay?
    I was so freaked out during the exam. I was so stressed and all my classmates found the paper hard. I'm so scared, I'm so scared of a B
    that's not right bro... steel is a stiff material hence resists changes to both its size and shape

    I found it easier than Jan. 2016.I left the spider question and the area under the graph(Work) and forgot to convert cm into m so I think I've lost 8 marks.Even with Mistakes I think I can afford to lose 25 marks total to get a 55.I think I'll get maybe a 57 when I strict checked my paper.The gb might be lower because many people around me found the paper to be hard/er than jan. 16 and didn't do so well.
    Where we had to convert cm to metres?

    I do think its messed up, but however it doesnt have alot of hard questions it has low density of hard questions but they are so hard , others are easy and free marks i hope.
