    It should be 3.6J because the equation is Ek = 1/2 * mass * speed^2

    I don't remember the distance q, what was it?
    Damn it!! i forgot to half it

    I put B, because it accelerated then levelled off, so i thought that showed terminal velocity... idk for sure though
    Would have to reach 0 though

    Wow I wasn't taught that. Thanks anyway. How did people get 3.6 and 7.2?
    kinetic energy= 1/2 x mass x velocity squared
    So its 1/2 x 0.05 x 12^2= 3.6 J

    Ek= Ep

    Ep= mass x gravitational field strength x height
    3.6= 0.05 x 10 x height
    u needed to find the height so

    Height= 3.6/(0.05x10)
    = 7.2m

    Hope that makes sense

    on P2 can anyone explain the graph for the rocket?
    People are saying either B or C but I just can't understand why it isn't A.
    The question said choose the graph that shows how velocity changes as the rocket falls until just after it hits the ground. surely when it hits the ground velocity would have to be 0, because it's no longer moving, and graph A was the only one that finished at the x axis - 0 ????
    This is what I was confused about! I put B (I think) because as the rocket falls, it acts like the parachutist that we learn about so the speed starts off low and it gets faster and faster bc it accelerates, until terminal velocity is reached and only B and C showed terminal velocity if I remember correctly. But I do understand where you're coming from as only A got to 0, but it showed a constantly decreasing speed when I feel it should have been increasing.

    I think the mass was 0.05 and the speed was 12.
    Yeah you're provabaly right, seen so many numbers today I can't remember them all aha

    If i got the wrong answer for one part and used the same wrong answer in the next part will I still get the marks??

    hmm, that's a good point...
    Wait, what shape was graph A?

    You'll probably get error carried forward, if you did the right method for the second part

    Yeah that's what most people got, I put 0.6 but I'm 99% I got that one wrong so I'm pretty jealous of your likely success right now
    Peak. I'm kicking myself right now cause I thought I wa being clever by change 0.05 to 50 when it should've stayed as 0.05.

    I put B too because it showed that the velocity increased rapidly and then levelled out to reach terminal velocity on the graph

    that's what ive done too- im fairly certain that u only get penalised once for the wrong answer, so im p sure u will be fine so long as u used the right method

    Wait, what shape was graph A?
    Graph A was just a straight, diagonal line
    I was unsure about all the options honestly because I didn't think it would fall at a constant velocity (which is what A showed) but none of the others hit the ground at 0 so I'm completely baffled by it

    That's a relief because I was aiming to not lose more than 15 marks

    I'm kicking myself right now because I forgot to square the velocity like that's probably the most stupid mistake to possibly make 😫

    so worried i hope it's around 46 or 47 for an A*, does anyone have a good idea of what the boundary could be?
