# How did you do in M2?! watch

1. (Original post by hajira)
heehee
wat was the distance it was travelling down the slope?
my mind has blanked out to the answer to that last bit..im gona work it out like i did in exam!
8....
2. how many marks do we loss if we get the CoM (a) wrong, is that any E.C.F for part (b)?
3. (Original post by topdude)
i think the only marks i lost was the 6c 1, where it goes prove theres only a horizontal force, and maybe the COM one, where i got 31/11 (althou i think that its right)
31/11 is wrong mate. sorry to tell you. the answer was a nice round 3.
you should get some method marks though

i think CoM (a) was 5 marks. depends on what you did wrong (ie if you took as a lamina, prob lose accuracy marks). and for part (b) there will definetly be follow through marks

n wat was the angle?

n wat was the angle?

HENCE my method of 8sin30x3xg
lol

heheh..it might b a good idea to ignore me, im jus not thinkin rite now am i

that paper was easy
we all did fine
im jus annoyed at that arithmetic mistake

o well time to go to bed

ps: never b an idealist!
8. sadly i took it as lamina, but the following method marks r the same~ so i lost perhaps 1-2 marks there!?
9. btw for 3b) where it asked for acceleration, i got -36i +8j but i also found magnitude in case. it was odd that they didnt specify....

yeah, i think max losing =2marks
i too made a silly mistake (read higher up this thread). i accidentally used mass of B=3 instead of 2. (for 5b ). dont worry. if we lose only 2 marks (or 1) we might still get 100
11. this M2 paper is fair~ i guess 70/75 will be full mark rt? (taking account into UMS)
12. To sum up then
1)a)35 [3]
b)14.6 [4]
2a)31/11 [5]-- however sum people got 3 which is right?
b)15/77 [3]-- and using three they got 1/7 which is right
3a)c=4 [6]
b) -36i + 8j [3]
4a) 1.8m[5]
b)6.75[5]
5a) 2/3 [7]
b) proof [7]
6a) i got 1018.4 and no1 has added here [4]
b) i got 770ish and agen no1 has added here [6]
c) proof [2]
7a)117.6J[2]
b) 10N[5]
c) 0.393[3]
d) 5.4 [5]

i have no idea. i hope so. i did 1 stupid mistake. everything else so far seems to be correct
i would guess about 72 would be full marks.....but that is just a random guess. not sure how edexcel measure what is 100

3b) -36i + 8j [3]

7d) 5.4 [5]
I disagree with the above:

2a) 3cm
b) 1/7

3b) They wanted accelleration, so i'm guessing not the vector... so: 36.9ms-2

7d) 5.93ms-1 5.39 ms-1

agree with all except 7d) it was 5.39ms-1

For 3b i wasnt sure wht they wanted so i put both the vector and the magnitude for the acceleration..so i'll get the mark for either
i cant remmber 7b and i made the same mistake for q3 took it as a square and a triangle ...how much do u reckon i wud gt by follow thru?

for q3, it was worth 5, so i think you might get about 3 for method...

acceleration is a vector .
20. (Original post by Mathemagician)
acceleration is a vector .
true
i left both...wasnt sure
