    0.8cm as in 8 mm??? that seems quite large or do you mean 0.8mm? if so i got 1mm which is close to that ?
    Your ruler can measure to 0.1 of a mm? I need one of those!

    That sounds about right
    I didn't spot that
    Might get some method marks for the formulae though

    but i was unsure because there was a faint circle surrounding the white spot which i thought would be the atom since the white spot at the centre implies nucleus and the atom is the circle surrounding that (from shells in chemistry) and that diameter was 08.cm? it sounds likes some people just measured the diameter of the white spot which was REALLY tiny so I fail to see how they worked it out from the image given as 2mm?! got the magnification as 3*10^7?? Anyone get similar?

    i got 3 *10^6

    If it wanted you to use 99 it would have said 99...........


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yeah pretty sure you had to use 100. Saying <100 includes numbers such as 1, i don't think you'll get any marks if you use 1,2,3 etc

    I'm not sure measuring it was the right way to go to be honest especially if it's that ambiguous

    It told you to measure it, and all of the past papers include measuring it so you get cmpixel-1 then work out the resolution

    Yes
    But it didn't say HOW MANY atoms


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    if u used any number from 90 to 99 , the answer u'll get will approximately be 3.0 * 10^6 , and this is what u get if u measure the diameter of an individual atom on the image.
    I am sure any body won't use one atom when the question says that the image contains just less than 100 atoms in the width

    Not if some people used 2mm and others used 8mm

    Then some people used different numbers of atoms and all sorts of things

    I know it's not 1, I'm just saying <100 could be anything sensible from 10-99 for all we know

    No. you were supposed to measure the image with a ruler, and divide that by the diameter of the atom.

    dont worry you probably did the right sum just added a 0 on somewhere, you'll get method marks

    Yeah, I hope I get a method mark -I have made so many silly mistakes though
    -only just finished in time,

    Did anyone else struggle for time?

    yes i struggled for time, had to make a few last minute guesses and made silly mistakes, hopefully the grade boundaries are low, but people seemed to find it easy.
