So I have a written exam tomorrow, based on a practical exam we did a couple of weeks ago, but I have pretty much zero knowledge on what the exam's about

Just wanted to know what it involves i.e. working out uncertainties etc. or is it just questions based on the practical like what does the gradient indicate? :confused:

BTW, mods please don't delete, I'm not discussing the actual exam, I just want to know what it's about - so exam help :rolleyes:

Please help.

Hm wasn't exactly the one I did, but I'd imagine the papers are the same or very similar
The first few questions are specifically about the experiment you did, you'll probably be asked to measure uncertainties and then find overall inaccuracies etc.
The second part is a second experiment that is based around the one that you did, they might just change one bit slightly (thickness of wire instead of length maybe?) then you'll probably have to complete a table and a graph, find the gradient and averages etc. Probably have to compare your results to the new results to find out which are more reliable too
Then the final part is one question where you pretty much have to apply the experiment you did to a random situation that you're given. You have to describe an experiment that they could do to find out the information they want. For this bit things like 'repeat measurements' and safety points uuuusually gain marks...

I really hope I've described the right exam! If I haven't I'm really sorry!
