I've got this paper on Thursday. Anyone remember what was on 1P apart from those horrible 5 markers on putting a ball in a tube and convection currents?

Error in title- 12th of June instead of the 11th! You gave me a fright haha

No I don't remember, sorry.

Credit goes to "IGCSE Kid" for this:

From my Physics teacher:

Dear Separate Scientist,

I hope your Physics exam, paper 1, on May 15th went well. Below is a reminder of the topics that came up in each question in paper 1:

1 Electromagnetic spectrum, wave equation
2 Energy transfers, efficiency
3 Pressure
4 Radioactive decay, half life, dating techniques
5 Forces during falling, terminal velocity
6 Electrical power, series and parallel circuits, electrical safety (earthing)
7 Electric motor
8 Practical skills – investigation of evaporation rate
9 Convection currents, Brownian motion
10 Orbits, calculation of orbit speed, kinetic and gravitational potential energy
11 Nuclear reaction equation, nuclear fission, nuclear reactor parts
12 Current-voltage experiment for a lamp bulb, relationship between voltage and resistance of lamp filament

There was a high proportion of explain-type questions and very few calculations.

Paper 2 is on June 12th. It is bound to contain some of the topics in bold type in the specification and some not in bold type. I cannot predict accurately what will come up in paper 2 but the following topics have not been fully covered so far:

· Everything in bold on the specification
· Motion graphs
· Newton’s laws
· Hooke’s law
· Comets, galaxies and the Universe
· Electrical circuit calculations and Ohm’s law
· Thermistors and LDRs
· Reflection, refraction, critical angle and total internal reflection
· Sound and ultrasound waves
· Thermal energy transfer and insulation
· Energy resources
· Density
· Pressure in fluids
· Temperature and absolute zero
· Gas laws
· Magnetic field patterns
· Electrical generators and Fleming’s rules
· Uses of radioisotopes
· Rutherford’s nuclear model of the atom
· More practical skills

There may be a higher proportion of calculations.

Good luck on June 12th. May the force be with you!

Regards,
Dr Rogers
Head of Physics

Oh dear. I wish I had actually revised for this one. I completely made up the explanation on how transformers work.

Oh well, the past is in the past...

I thought there would be more calculations to balance out all of the long writing questions in paper one. :unimpressed:

sorry but im just curious - are you talking about paper 2P or paper 2PR?? D

I'm pretty sure I did 2P. What did you do?

ah, i did the 2PR paper, but then there was also a transformers question (5marks...) HAHA thought you might've did the same paper as I did ! :P

did you guys get anything on static electricity -_-

We did as well! I'm sure I did 2P... But to be honest, I don't know the difference between them. :

Our static electricity question was OK. Didn't really like the longer one asking you how to demonstrate two different charges in insulators because I was scared they'd want me to name some of the different kinds. I kept it vague, so hopefully it'll be fine.
