    Hi i was wondering if someone could help me on some MC questions? Its questions 2, 21, 22 and 24 from Jan2011
    for Q2 i got B but the correct answer is A
    for Q21 I got D but the correct answer is B
    and i couldn't do 22 or 24
    thanks in advance

    Q2. As your answer is double the correct one, you've most likely not converted the diameter - which is what they gave in the question - into the radius

    I'm not great with magnetic fields, but 22 I can manage,

    Q22. Magnetic flux is BA. B is given in the question, A is the area the wings cover in 10 seconds. As it's going 150m/s, in 10 seconds it's travelled 1500m. The wingspan is 60 so A = 1500 x 60 = 90000. BA = 0.9 or 9 x 10^-1, D.

    Thank you so much! Im terrible at magnetic fields! i just can't get my head round it

    Would anyone mind explaining the difference between Flemmings LHR and RHR?? Can I use the LHR in both situations and get the right answer??

    I think you use the RHR when you want to find the direction of the induced emf, as (from lenz law) it acts in the opposite direction to the motion of the conductor

    But you use the LHR to find direction of the force on a conductor using conventional current (that's +ve to -ve)

    Thanks, so in the RHR is the current flow also + to -?

    Yup - fingers all symbolise the same thing - just different orientation! This time it's the current that's induced rather than a force being produced as with the LHR.

    Anyone fancy explaining why the Kinetic Energy curve is a parabola and not a bell-shaped curve? I know it's like that in the books etc, I just wanna know why ;p

    Ek=0.5mv2
    Ek∝v2

    v=2πf root(A2-x2)
    v2=4π2f2(A2-x2)
    v2∝-x2

    Ek∝-x2

    Constants change it's y intercept I think

    Personally predicting SHM or circular motion. You?

    Highly unlikely to be capacitance as that came up last year. Simple harmonic motion does seem very likely, as they haven't actually ever had a six marker on it yet, but that could be because it always comes up in the EMPA.

    Well my ISA was on Capacitors this year haha

    Wrt SHM, do you mean experiments then?

    Not a clue mate, would love Kepplers law if it hasn't come up before

    Kepler's third law came up last year as a "proof" question about Satellite orbits. Not to say it won't come up again but who knows.

    I think SHM is most likely - even though the EMPA was on it, it could easily be that as it hasn't been asked yet and there's so much theory on it.

    what sort of theory do you think is likely to come up about SHM?

    Are we expected to derive the equations in the written paper for SHM
