How did you find it?

I had trouble with question 6 - the last 2 parts.
Question 7 was a bit strange. You could find the coefficient when it was resting, or you could of done -0.1gsin15 - F = 0.1(-3) when it was moving, I think

Definitely the hardest M1 paper of all the past papers. Even the first question was horrible. The cartesian equation one, was impossible. What did you think of the integration one?

Did you get a negative mass for the first question? I think I must have done it wrong because I got -400kg and I doubt that is possible.

I didn't have enough time to finish it; I'm ill, and didn't have the right frame of mind, so I'm hoping they will lower the grade boundary, but I doubt that too.

Mine wasn't negative - you can't get a negative weight. Mine was some large like 3000kg, I'm pretty sure this is right

Yeah, I knew you couldn't get a negative mass, but I didn't know how else to do it. I used the conservation of momentum. Perhaps my calculation was wrong. Stupid give-away marks that I lost.

It was awful! I couldn't do question 5 and ended up with sines and cosines everywhere!

Ok, pretend unloaded was 1000kg. One is unloaded and one has Xkg.
They both approach at 2m/s and loaded one goes to rest and unloaded goes 6m/s

So it'll be

2(1000) - 2(1000 + x) = -6(1000) + 0 because it's at rest
Then solve to find x, quite simple.

So as a rough guess, how many marks did you guys think you lost?

One other thing, I am so pissed off that none of the invidulators told me that graph paper was provided. The bloody question didn't even say 'use graph paper' or did it?

I'm not happy

You didn't need to use graph paper, as it just said sketch.

But we were provided with graph paper.

Anyone bored/enthusiastic enough to write a short overview of the answers (if they can remember) so we can see how we did?

ehh, who wants to go through one question at a time??

i think question 1 the mass was 3000kg like someone said earlier.

i can't remember question two though...

i had trouble with Q5, i think it was. where you had to find the coefficient.

did anyone alse get a= -4ms^2?

then 0.98sin15 + friction = 0.1 x -4

or something like that o_O

I got final mu=0.1.. something

I think I got 2000kg...

Question 2 was the two forces and the resultant (the right angles triangle)...
You know if you got the first bit correct because you have to prove it...
I think the second part was 6 (by pythagoris)

oh wait yeah i think you're right, 1) was 2000kg

i got the same for 2) aswell so that's good.

what was Q3?

that went badly. i had problems with the graph question for some reason... and missed out the second part. Also question 6, the one with the train, i couldn't pove the last bit... i've got mass of engine, 64000kg, anyone got that? The rest was ok i think, though i probably made a lot of mistakes.

Can you guys tell me how bad you did so we can sort of see how bad everyone did!!

Just hope that the grade boundaries will be low
