    What are the grade boundaries like for unit 2? What do you all think they will be for this exam?

    Did anyone get the weight of the ball to be 0.44N (or thereabouts). I was confused by this question at first until I saw the formula for the volume of a sphere.

    Overall I thought it was a harder than average paper, so the grade boundaries will be lower-normal.
    Yep, 0.44N to 2dp! Grade boundaries I reckon could be 46-48/70 for A as it was a bit tougher than some of the others for sure!

    I got 0.44 at first (that is correct), but then I changed it as a I though it was too low, I got 44 haha, how many marks do you think I will loose for all correct working but wrong answer?

    Hoping that everyone failed so grade boundaries are very low! Otherwise i'm screwed

    It depends, it was out of 4, so I would say at least 2 and if were being optimistic 3

    The graph was wider and lower in intensity:

    intensity is the energy of photons: E= hc/wavelength therespre increasing wavelength decreases energy which decreases intesity.

    Thats what my teacher told me.

    First question

    Can anyone confirm: 6100N, about 9 degrees, and like 22% for the efficiency???

    Not an entirely nice exam. I'm guessing 60/70 for 120 UMS, as for the past 3 years it's always been 61 or below for 120 UMS?

    I honestly think I'd be lucky to get a C, my maths was all over the shot.

    Yes

    22.2% i got for effiencity and the same as you for the rest.

    I got 6082N (rounds to 6100N). Something like 9.5 degrees, and yes, about 22-24% for efficiency (can't remember exactly).

    How about the graph everyone? I drew the maxima more spaced out, but did you have to do something with the intensity? Thanks!

    Yes (9.5) and yes!!
    I also got 0.44N

    Useful power was Ep/55 seconds

    So that/320000 x100= 24 or whatever

    Think I got this one wrong! I knew that they were spread out, so got that mark.. but I think the intensity should have been lower..

    6100N
    9.5degrees
    Acceleration
    Ep
    Power efficiency 20.4


    Question2:
    0.55s
    245m ish as square route of 2y/g
    S=Vt so if V is lower S is lower acceleration is equal for both across same distance therefore same vertical downwards time however lower horizontal velocity in b means lower distance as S=Vt


    Question3:
    volume of sphere equation density over volume value is 0.44n weight
    The ball in oil including newtons first and second law terminal velocity resultant forces and gravity vs drag to create curve of velocity followed by horizontal etc(6 marks)
    Then graph- straight line until it goes in then curve to decreasing gradient until gradient=0 and stays constant


    Question4:
    Hookes law
    Gradient for k (1100 N/m ish
    Area under- 1/2F x delta l can't remember value
    Straight line parallel to first one intersecting x axis
    plasticity definition (look it up)
    Work is less as area under graph is less energy absorbed as heat and in permanent extension


    Question5:


    Two conditions for TIR? Higher than critical angle, and moving from a higher n to lower n.


    Speed of light = 1.7*10^8


    Angle =30 degrees


    Critical angle = 51 degrees


    What happens to the ray of light? Undergoes TIR since angle of incidence = 52 degrees > critical angle


    Draw light reflecting off thanks to flf


    Question6: Progressive wave one
    1/2pi and 3/2 pi
    Describe motion of B (up then down then down then up)
    Transverse so seismic Secondary wave oscillations perpendicular to energy transfer, many oscillation planes turned to one therefore must transverse
    Define frequency
    Wavelength c=wavelength x frequency therefore answer forgotten values


    Question7:
    Definition of monochromatic
    Fringes larger intensity equal
    Forgot
    White light fringes vs monochromatic fringes red outside fringes blue light inside white central colours diffract at different angles therefore overlapping etC

    It was 1.0J as it was to 1 significant figure But hopefully they'll accept anything around that.

    Indeed, it counted each square as 1 rather than whatever it was for each square stupid mistake, thanks anyway
