    which paper?
    how are you feeling about this exam?
    any advice/tips?
    June 2014.

    Confident.

    Advice/tips - remember the three points for all wordy BF questions and, actually, for all the energy/speed/ideal gas wordy questions - there will always be at least 1.

    what are the "three points"?

    e is the base of the natural logarithm.

    1/e is about 0.37. So basically you can say that the time constant is the time taken for the current to fall to 37% of its initial value. e is just a special number that occurs in exponential relationships its about 2.718 to 4 sf.

    oh!
    Yes I do maths so I know all about e, i thought it was referring to the charge on an electron and just thought "what?!"

    with the graph, why is it everything to the right, i thought it was everything between R and D

    and for the proof, can someone quickly explain what happens between the two highlighted lines? I'm quite a confident mathematician but it's bugging me as I keep ending up with ln(-lambdaN0) and you can't take logs of a negative number...

    It's everything to the right as potential is from infinity to a point so its from D to infinity.

    can someone briefly run through the highlighted lines? I didn't think you could take logs of a negative -lambdaN0???

    I'm not entirely sure about the negative but i believe it's because -lamdaN0 is a constant so i just replaced it with C, took logs then put it back in at the end.

    You could consider it as ln| \lambda N_0 |, which is just an arbitrary constant, which they have called C

    Say you have gamma and the time taken for observers on Earth
    How do you calculate the time taken for observers on a spacecraft?

    Multiply it by gamma I think.

    Good luck for today everyone - I can usually hit an A* on these papers but OCR have a habit of screwing us over so who knows what will happen...
