    and about a tube through the centre of the earth and dropping a ball down it?

    and radioactive dating?

    and any maths?


    was teddy hall ur second choice then? did u have a look round?
    Got the question about dropping a ball through the centre of the earth, he one about radioactive dating and also a maths one - calculus related.
    Had an interview at St Edmund Hall and the interviewers were very friendly. Didn't get to look round it and was pretty happy to get allocated my first choice St. Annes.

    What are you doing for the geological survey? How did you manage to get something like that?

    It's the N. Ireland branch, I met the big chief at a presentation for top a-level results and got chatting to him, I followed that up with an e-mail and he offered me the work. I think it's mainly field work sampling soil, sediment and water.

    heat is absorbed from inside fridge by collant and heat is then lost out back of fridge but if room is insulated then the heat stays in the room so temp stays same.

    Wouldn't the motor create additional heat?

    Obviously not that stupid if your still explaining the answer a week after the interview. Gets you thinking which was the main idea of the interview.
