    what are the formulas we use for calculating max. velocity and acceleration? are there any other formulas that we should know?

    Have a look at the image I have attached. I've tried to explain it to you through diagrams
    shudnt the velocity be the cos wave and the acceleration be the sine wave?

    Good luck
    I feel that it's going to be easier than January's 6PH04 =)
    I'm going to revise astro now, it's probably the most difficult part in physics.

    best of luck!

    I explained it wrong. Trying to shorten it too much :P

    Please see the new diagram.

    Hope this makes sense to you.

    Whether you use sine or cosine depends on the wave you have, and that all depends on WHEN you start your clock on the SHM.

    Yes much better
    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

    We don't need to know how to devise an experiment to prove somethings in SHM do we?

    Doubt it. They will probs put an Excel question in there about SHM

    Excel question? Like a spreadsheet?

    They always seem to have at least one experiment. Lets hope it's the easy radiation one!

    Yup, spreadsheet kinda one. And they will probs give you a random equation too

    I hope it's on radiation or on thermal energy. That will definitly make me happy. :woo:

    Ohh like unit 1 was with the mechanics. So that'd probably be for heat etc.

    Yeah the thermal energy woule be nice as well, I need to go and learn the gas one's though

    I'll probs do what I do best: make up a random experiment and explain it well :awesome:
    Dunno if it will get me marks though :o:

    For which? I can make some key points for them if you want?

    Have you lot learnt about Charles' law (v is proporional to T) It doesn't appear in any of my revision guides (only pressure and Boyle's law)??

    I'll be fine, but thanks for offering :yep:

    I think I have. I learnt about it yesterday when I was thinking to myself 'Who the hell is Charles?!'. I kinda understand it. Going to school in a minute for some last minute revision (which I don't normally do )

    But not learnt it in class? Hmm then maybe that experiment won't come up

    Good luck
