# AQA Physics A Unit 5 - 19 June 2014 watch

1. Couldn't find a new one for it so thought I should create one for people who are doing it this year.

how's everyone finding it?

and what optional unit are you doing? I'm doing Medical Physics

kerboodle notes for each optional unit
2. Hi there,

While you're waiting for an answer, did you know we have 300,000 study resources that could answer your question in TSR's Learn together section?

We have everything from Teacher Marked Essays to Mindmaps and Quizzes to help you with your work. Take a look around.

If you're stuck on how to get started, try creating some resources. It's free to do and can help breakdown tough topics into manageable chunks. Get creating now.

Thanks!

Not sure what all of this is about? Head here to find out more.

what optional module are you doing?
5. (Original post by Qari)
what optional module are you doing?
advanced mechanics and thermal dynamics (C)
6. (Original post by Goods)
advanced mechanics and thermal dynamics (C)
I didn't even know about that one
is it writing based or mathematics based?

Its about engines heat pumps and rotational mechanics, its mainly maths but the written parts are really quite hard.

i take it you prefer Maths over thr Writing?

I'm doing option C too, do we need to know how heat pumps and fridges work?

10. Turning Points in Physics (D)

I find the calculations are all relatively straight forward with the exception of special relativity (I sometimes get proper and observed length and time mixed up) and the 6 markers are horrrrrrrrible.

Section A is ridiculously easy though.

I mess up on the.thermal stuff in section.A
Optional unit.is all memorising.imo.

I hate 6 markers in both unit 4 & 5
12. Thank god we have an official thread for it. I'm doing Medical Physics btw

Everyone i think it's best if we pool our revision resources together and i'll start with my folder, if you could all contribute and then we could help each other out, that would be great.

haha that's what I was thinking when I started the thread that we need one where we can all talk. There's a Unit 4 one as well
Thanks

Do you have the kerboodle notes? or shall I send you them?

And not everyone is doing medical physics.
For Unit 5 I just read from Nelson Thorne Book due to it not being that big

If you could send the kerboodle notes that would be fantastic bro Yea unfortunately i don't have any other unit notes but if i do find some i'll send them this way.

Heya Did you have the answers to those summary questions? I've been looking everywhere for them.

I find the 6 mark questions pretty awful... I think Im a little more confident with med physics than I am with the nuclear/thermal stuff, but then again I'm not very confident at all.

only answers are the ones on page 15-16 of sheet 5.

I'm not confident with either but I'd choose section a over med

I might have something for you all, it's the exam style questions for the chapters 9-10. Might be useful to some of you, i may need help in a few days aswell about how to go around answering them so heads up.
