    Um, yes, I timesd by 2, its even in the markscheme that you provided :P I just moved the 2 from the front to the back. No difference :P

    And yes, you just resolve the two tensions, and then add them together. It's fine

    And, yes, I'll help you with vectors to the best I can

    here is the vectors question ...i don't get the c) part how and why or what to do? when giving the exam for first time a new vector question comes up i am able to do the simple postion vector of A & B , when they collide the time and its relative position vector but after that where the tricky part is .....i just don't know how to go on with it as in what to do??? i get clueless!!!

    srry for making it so long but i felt as if iam ryt now in the examination hall and i am stuck where no one is there to help me but me {clueless me} !!!aggghh i will stop right here but i hope all of u understood my misery with vectors!! hope u all would change that for tomorrow!!

    Q2
    There is no q2. But Ill assume that you mean the stuff in Red.

    So what dont you understand about it? First of all, you have to keep you head when doing these questions. When I do these questions I have the X and Y axis in my head.

    At t=0, A is at 7i -10j, so I plot it in my head, 7 across and 10 down from the origin just like you would with normal coordinates. Plotted and saved. Now it says, when t=3, it changes speed. So you need to know what point it is at.

    So you know that the speed of this thing is (-5i + 8j) m/s . So after 1 second, it will ave gone left 5 and up 8.

    So if you imagine this in your head, and then right it down, it will be:

    (7i - 10j) the original point + (-5i + 8j) x3 (for 3 seconds)

    This will give you the point it is at, at 3 seconds.

    And then you do the same with the rest, but you have unknowns such as U and V. You need make sure everything is clear, ie, U is the X axis component and V is the Y, in this question.

    ok here's part c)

    distance= speed x time.

    when t=3, the position vector is going to be 7i - 10j + 3(-5i + 8j)= -8i + 14j.

    so now... after 4s, it is at origin, therefore -8i + 14j + (ui + vj)=0

    from here, equate the i and j parts and get u and v

    ok??

    as for part d)

    for it to be south of A, it must have the same i position.

    therefore, 7i... + 3(-5i + ...) + t(ui + ...)= 7i

    from above you know that u=2, so this gives you 7.5s

    thus, total time is 3 + 7.5= 10.5s
