    because it asks for the fraction of the atoms that WILL have decayed, so 7/8 will have decayed, i think anyway :yep:

    No problem

    Tell me what you think of it and if I need to change anything
    others seem ok.
    How much are you expecting?

    Erm hopefully at least 60/80 .... maximum i think i could get would be 67/80 but not too sure, how about you?

    I'm looking at like 57/80. Can I manage to get a B with this mark?

    In the last question, I didn't notice that 35 mm could be used as displacement so I started using energy considerations until the very end where I read the paragraph on the previous page and saw the 70 mm thing. Here's what I did, is it right?

    PE at maximum displacement = KE at zero displacement

    \dfrac{1}{2}kx^2 = \dfrac{1}{2}mv^2

    a=w^2x => F=kx => F = kx = mw^2x

    k=mw^2

    \dfrac{1}{2}kx^2 = \dfrac{1}{2}mv^2 => \dfrac{1}{2}mw^2x^2=\dfrac{1}{2}  mv^2

    w^2x.x=v^2

    ax=v^2

    V being max. speed, a=0.89 and x=35 mm

    v=\sqrt{0.89*0.035}
    v=0.176

    As to Jays prediction, you might get an A with that mark, but who knows you may get better.

    A few bits I'm not sure about:

    On the question asking about explaining why movement of stars relative to background stars is observed, would these three points be correct?
    - This is parallax; objects further away appear to move more slowly
    - The background stars are so far away that they appear not to be moving at all
    - As a result the background stars' motion can be considered negligible and so are used as a reference point for nearby stars.

    On the question about explaining how a radioisotope's activity in the body can be detected, would it count to say that it is a tracer and it emits radioactive radiation which can be detected by a Geiger counter?

    Overall I think I could get about 70/80 for this paper.
