    Wasn't the polarisation question to explain what the scientist would discover about the wave FROM THE EARTHQUAKE based on the fact that it was polarised?

    On the 6 mark question, first law and second law should be the other way around. Also, bullet b's distance is not affected by its mass. It's because both accelerate towards the ground at the same rate from the same height, therefore, same time of travel, thus lower horizontal speed causes bullet to travel shorter distance in the given time.
    Thank you very much for your input, I will make changes to my original post.

    Thats means its different form the double slit one, like most people r explaining.
    what people are explaining is right

    The fact that it was a transverse wave was given in the question, so even i'm not sure where the 2 marks would have come from?
    I just put it will be a secondary seismic wave which travels through parallel planes

    Polarised so must be transverse?

    I put seismic s waves as well, that should be a mark

    For the phase difference I put

    "90 degrees out of phase"

    "270 degrees out of phase"

    Is this okay or will I not get the marks as I said "out of phase"

    When its finalised let me know which page its on so I can quote it in the op

    i think you would say that since it is transverse, you would limit the vibration to oscilliate in one direction perpendicular the wave travel (1 mark) hence the scientist could deduce where the earthquake will be directed at (1 mark)

    I think you will. I put that too?

    I've just about managed to finalise the mark scheme now, but as it says, I think I've given an extra mark to one of the questions somewhere. Again, any corrections are welcome and greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: I'm also still clueless as to what the second part of question 7 was, I think it was the intensity graph, but not too sure.

    EDIT^2: Its now complete, thank you .raiden. and HenryD for clearing that up.
    7a - sure wavelength will get the mark? I thought coherence was strictly: constant/fixed phase difference.. I just saw that on the mark scheme highlighted/underlined loadss of times.. I could be wrong just thought otherwise

    That would be fine I'd think.

    You'll have to state why polarisation means that it must be transverse and then say SSW I would think.

    i put that too because they both are out of phase since 90 and 270 are not a whole number multiple of 360 degrees

    I don't think they'd be so harsh it is correct in my eyes I just wanted to see your opinion?

    In that case I put the effect of the seismic wave can only be seen in one direction is a mark? Probably too vague I guess

    Look at figure 2 ... Thats what happens .. Not white central fringe .. or first order continuous spectra.

    EDIT: This is the last question on the paper.

    Fairly sure that that question was about monochromatic light? In which case same wavelength is the answer.

    it asked for monochromatic not coherent
