    yeah i got 14.1 for the raindrops, but my friend got like 170+!!!! i was like.........erm.......yeah i don't know.......lol.
    Wasnt that question two part? One was before impact and one was the initial speeds of the individual droplets. What did you get for the initial vels of the new droplets? I just found 80% of the KE and subtracted it from the KE from the previous part. Since the masses and vels were all equal I did:
    New KE (ie after the 80% loss) = 1/2mv². Then I just solved it liked that and divided the final answer by 10 since there were ten droplets. Is this what you did or did I just mess it up

    you messed up, because mass is divided equally too.

    Don't worry, you're not alone :winks

    i didnt know what "coalesce" meant in the collision question, i had a wild guess with it and later found out i got it wrong. oh well.

    oh and i forgot what 'retardation' meant as well, only ever came up once before in a class while ago. naturally, i got that wrong too.

    wasn't my favourite paper compared to the past papers i've been doing. didnt get onto the final question either, i ran out of time :mad:

    other than that i found the questions nice. rigid object question i can't remember exactly but (i) i think was 105N, (ii) 98N, 98N, 36.9 degrees.

    water drop question i remember working out using potential energy for the first part to get the v, 14.1ms^-1 sounds familiar part ii was dodgy, but i think i ended up with somethin 6.xx.

    dont think OCR publish their examiners' reports. If you were retaking the paper, then compare with last time you did, I guess the boundry should be almost the same. The Jan 2005 paper was a hard paper too.

    I think they do. My teacher has told us what the boundaries were for each of the past papers we have done. They also have a copy of the board mark scheme.

    I found the rigid object question hard, and am almost definite that I got it wrong! I'm pretty sure it was question 6 though and that the power one was question 4...

    I'm comforted by the fact that I think I just need to pass the paper to get an A overall.

    did any1 remember what they got for the rigid objects in equilibrium question about the car park barrier? i got seventy something degrees.. but every1 else seemed to get around 20 degrees

    i got the angles in the last q as 81.1 and 31.1 i think..

    i think i got two hundred and something kilajoules for the energy question cos it was gain in gpe - loss in k.e

    can't remember much else
