    Specific content-wise, I'm just gonna make notes on accelerators and particle detectors and learn those. Then I'm just gonna keep trying lots of past synoptic papers to practice. And maybe briefly read through my AS physics folder..?

    analogies can be quite confusing. Accelerators are easy, just learn the content even if you don't understand it.

    personally its all hard, but dunno why i find fission and fusion hard,i think its cos my teacher taught it in several lessons and was on about some deterium molecule or somin like that, all those processes and different isotopes of hydrogen - he overcomplicated it for sure
    should we go through the topics 1-7 or just concentrate on the hard ones in any order?

    Don't say you were taught the whole proton-proton chain :eek:

    yep edexcel
    then again my teacher gets carried away cos he knows too much advanced physics

    im sure proton-proton chain is in the nelson (NAS) book :confused:

    I agree with u completely. The accelerators are not that hard. But the analogies are really very confusing. Well, i'm planning to memorise all the analogies even though it is not that clear to me.

    Deuterium is an isotope of Hydrogen. Its nucleus consists of 1 proton and 2 neutrons. It is the essential of nuclear reactors.

    @sumitk87: you don't have to memorise it. The chain may be the topic asked in the exam but they will provide you with enough details and you don't have to recall the whole tedious process from your mind

    im planning to spend next => tuesday,wednesday,friday [evening],sunday,saturday all on phy6/c4.

    I haven't been taught bubble chamber stuff properly, i learnt e=mc^2 in particle physics, glad that is giving me an advantage over some people

    that was in particle phys? that would explain my *ahem* weak performance in PHY3

    i cant revise for phy6 and C4 until after history on the friday before

    What are the analogies for the accelerators???? :confused: Waht do u mean by it? cos im kinda lost.

    is it to do with the linac/cyclotron itself like how to draw it and stuff???

    do we need to know the diff between them?

    no analogies for the accelerators, just other ones

    for example with a spring system and capacitorsin series or parallel (capacitance and the spring constant), or decay of a capacitor by discharge through a resistor and redioactive decay,
