    am i the only idiot that does not feel ready at all?
    i don't think so..

    i get the majority of it, but the multiple choice just seems to be about manipulating equations.

    Haha! No! I feel so unprepared...

    I've got equations running around my head everywhere. :woo:

    question 1a Section B

    where do i find the Amplitude from? the ms says its 90, i can't see it though
    help please

    [EDIT] its in the question, sorry i hadn't read it properly... anxiety.

    Well, it was bad, but not as bad as it could have been.
    I liked parts of the SHM and gravitational. The last bit on transformers was a little...hmm. 6 marks for the energy loss was a bit :s
    I wrote about laminated core and circular design of the transformer to induce as much as possible.

    How did everyone else find it?

    It was quite a hard paper imo 0_0. Some of it were horrible like the Transformers question, I only filled up like 1/3 lines! >__>

    I couldn't do the kWH 20p question. I just couldn't do it!!

    I found the multiple choice ok, I had an educated guess for two of them.

    And, meh, I lost a few marks here and there. So what is it to get an A? 80 overall? I think I can make it >__>

    I think you may be me...

    What did everyone get for the very first quesiton about the length of the swing?
    I got 1.95m (3 sf) - and im praying that's right... :confused:

    I got 1.95
    took me forever, i kept dividing by g instead of multiplying!!!

    My prediction of epic fail materialised!

    I thought it was hard...

    Couldn't show the change in potential was 8GJ, dont think I did the centripetal acceleration right, missed out 2 parts on the last page due to running out of time

    OMG THANK GOD!

    Slightly happier now!!!

    And to the person above, I couldn't show it was 8Gj. I couldn't do centripetal acceleration too - what value of v did they want us to use? They didn't give anything!

    ahhh i found the transformers question annoying!!! and the 20kwh annoying. did literally all the rest to a reasonable amount. should be at least a C, possible more if grade boundaries get lowered

    I'm hoping for a C too really. I'm on a B and that would be great, but, I don't think so somehow...

    Yeh I got 1.95 too, but initally I had 190m. After about 5 mins, i looked back and saw 190m, and thought, wow thats a huge swing! lol

    I really dont understand what kWH is. It wasted so much of my time, and I still didnt get it. WHY cant it be just 20p per how much ******* kW of energy you use? Like 20p for every 20W u use would be so much easier. They have to use kWH with just confuses me >__>

    And the centripetal acceleration. I didnt get it in the exam, but I understand now.

    a = g= GM / r^2

    Oh and I got the 8GJ thing

    U just use the potential energy formula and the distance changed

    Id never have got that for a even if I sat there all day..

    And I did that for the potential and didnt get 8GJ

    Oh well
