    "describe an experiment that demonstrates Brownian Motion"
    "describe an electrical experiment to determine the specific heat capacity of a solid/liquid"

    CAN ANYONE FIND REVISION NOTES AND A LIST OF DEFINITIONS FOR THIS EXAM

    Good Luck All x

    doubt they'l ask your first question in the Jan exam, as they asked that question in last exam.

    Being so recent, it isn't available to students, however our teacher says he has access to it and will be uploading it to the school site. Try asking your teacher.

    In response to your 2nd question, yeh it seems pretty straightforward and a high mark easily obtainable with revision.

    Once uploaded to your school site, can you get it and upload onto megaupload or something?

    Yeh a high mark is attainable with plenty of revision... its puzzled me why unit 4 is an A2 exam since the start of the yr... Electrons, Waves and Photons is a much harder exam (not that this is straightforward, some content is difficult to grasp) dont ya think? must be that u wudnt be able to finish unit 2 an 5 in a yr most probs! But we'll see in jan hopefully we get a nice paper!!

    I hate thermal physics and ideal gases.

    Other than that I think Im alright, though I particularly dislike questions that ask about impulses of forces and you need to calculate the impulse by counting squares, I never ever seem to get the correct number

    I dont like counting squares neither :P seriously wastes time. Ideal Gases is fine, just the thermal physics chapter and the bit on resonance and damping. Gonna have to re read about those, brownian motion, kinetic model, pressure............... FUN TIMES AHEAD!

    can't you just work out the area under the graph i.e 2 triangles etc instead

    I try that, and it doesnt work

    An example, in an end of unit test, I used triangles, and so did my friend (at AS he got something like 295/300 so I trust his judgement :P) and we both got an answer out by about 0.1 and we both got it wrong.

    I just cant get into my revision, how is everyone else doing it and what past papers have you got? I downloaded some legacy zip files and there is no actual paper like the Newtonian World, something like Fields, Forces and Energy and they don't contain all questions.

    Its annoying

    OCR removed all their legacy papers! Fools! If you do chemistry or biology as well (OCR as well), do you know where I can get the legacy papers and if they're similar to the spec?

    I absolutely hate this module and the mechanics module, have to do this both in jan grrr, nailed the electro/waves ones 128/150 but these two "easier" modules are doing my head in, i honestly can't do it aaahhhh, anyone got any exceptionally good notes/condensed list or something to help me get going?

    Im doing Chemistry on OCR aswell

    Luckily, I dont have any A2 modules this jan, but Im retaking F322 (Last June) since I got a C and could have done better :/
