What was the answer for the second question - the gap fill one about speed = ... velocity x time? I put average but I'm not sure

I put instantaneous no clue what's right though

What did everyone put for the P6 tick boxes on killing living cells??


Posted from TSR Mobile
I did...
- cancer
- sterilises equipment

Can't remember the third one I ticked

I put instantaneous but apparently ​it's average. Average seems right too.

I kinda put tracers

How many marks will I lose if I put food, tracers & cancer?

"Instantaneous speed is an average over a really short period of time"

Would 9.7 seconds be enough to be considered instantaneous?

His actual time was 9.69 as it was his world record in 2008 that was used
I put 9 so would I get the mark for that?

It was worth two marks, so only 1.

I can't confirm anything sadly, but to be honest it kind of seems alright when reading that. The thing is, it depended on that equation - I've never seen 'average velocity' only 'instantaneous velocity' hence why I put it.

They'd accept a range, since the graph ended in the third mini box (9.7) on the graph they'd probably accept +- 0.1 (or at least in maths) so probably not, unless you stated rounded to nearest whole number/drew a line to confirm 9 I think.

Was there a 3 in front of one of the elements in the decay question? :eek:

On the right hand side, it looked like this:

3n0 and a 1 underneath the 0 or was it a 1 and a 0 underneath? Something like that, but yes there was a 3 there.

These are what I put, can anyone give an approximate mark (or correct them! :rolleyes:)

P4 6 maker:

At the start all of the forces are stationary (weight and gravity are constants)
When he runs, he begins to accelerate and build up momentum
Air resistance is not a greater force after a bit, his resultant force is to go forward (driving force) from the build up of forces
When continuing to run, he builds up more acceleration and momentum (work done)
This results in a greater K.E and when he jumps he transfers the energy to go higher/further
KE = work done, KE turns to GPE and then he begins to fall


P5:

Filament lamp wire is smaller so there are more collisions with the free moving ions
This results in a greater resistance and the temperature rises
This causes the filament lamp to glow
Connecting wires are bigger so there are less collisions with the free moving ions
This results in less resistance and the temperature isn't as great
This means that the wires don't glow
I think I put something else too (anyone got an idea? ), but my answer filled the last line only.


P6:

I agree that there are risks as radioactive waste emits ionising radiation
Ionising radiation can kill/damage cells and cause mutations and cancer if people are close to the power station
However, power stations are built away from most people and disposed of correctly
Low level waste - (e.g medical gloves? :confused:) - disposed on dumps/landfill sites - has a long half life, low activity - but public could still be affected
Intermediate level waste (e.g surgical equipment? :confused:) - disposed of by putting it in cement and steel contains - shorter half life, more activity - away from public as it's underground
High level waste (forgot to put an example...) - short half life, high activity - put in glass (vitrification), cooled to reduce heat and put underground in containers - away from people
Overall, there are risks but the benefits (no CO2, more energy) outweighs the risks of radioactive waste.
In the filament lamp, the filament wire has a high resistance therefore when electrons pass through it, it causes the positive stationary ions inside it to vibrate leading to an increased level of kinetic energy and heat - this causes it to glow. The filament wire is also made of metal and therefore is a conductor with free charges to move so the electrons can transfer energy to it and make it glow. The wires itself have a very low resistance, so low that it is normally ignored and therefore the electrons would not make it vibrate as much as something with high resistance. The wiring is also surrounded by plastic which is an insulator and has few free charges to move and therefore doesn't conduct electricity. This means that it will not glow when the charge passes through it

(Or atleast that's what i put )

Ah sugar yes! I forgot about the conductor/insulator part but to be honest I probably wouldn't have thought of it in the exam. I was wondering whether or not to mention the little resistance in wires so they're usually ignored though.

That's why I put it also! I'd only heard of instantaneous speed and my physics teacher specifically referred to it as that so I put it.

oops completely forgot to look at the 3. oh well, it was like 2 marks right?

Yup - in a previous exam paper they award marks for:

Getting the bottom part of the equation right (1)
Getting the top part of the equation right (1)

So along as you got 40 I think it was on the bottom (Te) then you'd get 1 mark.

Ah oh well, the rest of the paper went well so I guess it's okay
