    Hi,

    My practical exam (Quantitative practical -practical, questions and graph) is coming up for the title 'Investigating the balance of a metal rod'

    I am confused on what to revise for it. Can anyone tell me what topics I should revise to be ready for it?

    Year 12 - (AS Physics OCR)

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Thanks for that! Do you think you can guess what the experiment would like in terms of setting up? Just a rough idea.

    You don't get a clamp or weights, you just balance it on a little wooden pivot on your desk

    Hello Dusky Mauve! So what are you measuring when you are balancing it? Because later I would have to do a table and plot a graph right?
