For the describing acceleration from the graph question, the acceleration is ALWAYS increasing, because even though the force was decreasing, it was still a positive force. This meant that the RATE OF INCREASE of acceleration was decreasing, but the acceleration was still increasing
If there's a change in force there must be a change in acceleration, it might not be a negative acceleration. But it certainly decreases. Think it through, Force goes up and mass is constant so acceleration increases. If Force decreased and mass is constant the acceleration must decrease in value (still a positive value though)

42 the paper was not that difficult for the later questions but people would make mistakes because OCR cannot word questions properly
ok that's great I need low a or high b for an a overall! I hope =]

Boys read my lips... The exam was so easy literally, if any of you hardscopers don't get over 90% then you are all losers

Has anyone got the paper itself?
I'd really love to obtain the paper, I don;t remember my answers but I remember what I did to solve it. Can you let me know if you manage to obtain the paper.

Goodbye 3 marks
Goodbye A
Goodbye uni
lmao I did exactly this too :'-(

Actually wanna dissapear. Bye bye medicine

wow i have an offer for medicine too but physics does not form part of the offer. Me taking 5 A levels, if ihad took 3 A2's physics i defintely would have dropped far too difficult to an A in physics.

website says 39 for 72 UMS, where did you get that value from?

yeah the acceleration would have decreased when the force went down but still been positive

is there an unofficial mark scheme up anywhere yet?

He meant 90% but said 90 UMS.

Yup, object is still accelerating but the acceleration decreases, rate of increase of acceleration depends on the positive gradient. Rate of decrease of acceleraetion depends on the negative gradient to sum it up

Would I be right in saying that the grade boundaries for an A* for this paper will be 40-42? I think it was harder than last year...

No... I think he meant 39 for A and 42 marks for 90 ums.

my bad, forgot the paper was out of 90ums, 39 was the boundary for an A you're right

so 3 marks between 80% and 90%?? seems way too close, is that the usual case?

I do seem to remember getting 41 moles of helium. I think i either got 86 total or I added 41 to 40 for some reason.
Pretty sure the number of mules of the first tank was givin in the question 45moles I think it was
