    you in yr 12? I'd say trig functions like inverse trig functions and addition rule, double angle formula, (but these are given in the formula booklet under the C3 section), C3 differentiation has never come up so I don't think we'll need to know it.
    yes well year 13 im from northern ireland i assume its the same ix only seen 2 past paper questions on it so ill just hope it doesnt come up i suppose

    I hate to say it, but don't forget Sod's Law - if you don't revise something, it'll come up. My school told the Sociology people they weren't going to teach a topic because it never comes up, and of course it did in the exam - none of them could answer it. Having said that, the questions I have seen with C3 knowledge in there have actually been more than one way to do them, and there's always one way that doesn't require the extra knowledge

    How difficult is M3 compared with M2? I found M2 quite difficult at first, but I feel quite confident after doing some past papers & solomon papers. I'm wondering if I should do M3 as it is optional for me to do it next year

    From what I understand it is quite a step up, but I haven't studied it myself, sorry! Someone in school did it and definitely noticed the difference in difficulty, but if you put the work in it's certainly doable

    Can anyone tell me if this is correct?
    When question say:
    Scenario 1:

    • Given that A and B collide again
    • There is a further collision

    Then you need to do this:
    Work out new speed of B = let it equal X
    Speed of a from previous part = let It equal Y
    This mean that you need to to X > Y

    Scenario 2:

    • Given.. P is reversed by collision
    • Find Range of values of e

    Then you need to do this:
    V1 < 0
    Leaving answer in the forn
    X < e < 1

    For the second one if they've already told you that it will be reversed by the collision couldn't you just put this into your diagram to begin with and then use when V1>0? I'm not too sure how to explain it really :-/

    Just as a note, e can also be equal to 1.

    Hey guys,

    When you're suspending a mass with a string or just suspended it at a point and it is in equilibrium, can you take moments from absolutely anywhere and expect it to equal zero or is there a specific place?

    I see on mark schemes that you need to take moments from certain points but I don't understand why they're picking those points.

    Thanks in advance

    Edit: this is for M3 but I think it applies for M2 as well.

    Yes, if it's in equilibrium the (vector) sum of moments about any point is zero.

    Sometimes you pick a point to take moments about because it eliminates unknown forces - e.g. say you have an unknown force F, if you take moments about the point of application of F then its moment is zero (zero perp. distance from pivot) so you eliminate it.

    that would ne a nightmare. yea i think ill look over the trif identities chapter in a c3 on wednesday to just get me and idea how to use them if the come up. hopefully they dont and its a very basic straight forward paper
