The general equation for the induced emf is:

Due to the nature of the sinusoidal variation in emf (when ), its peak value is:

As , and flux linkage is equivalent to :

Dividing both sides by omega gives the max flux linkage equal to:

What do you mean by the sinusoidal variation of emf?, is sinwt=1 after one full cycle?

Is anyone revising AS stuff?

I hope they don't bring any AS in the exam

The emf varies as a sine wave. At its peak, is at a maximum (ie: it equals 1). This gives the largest possible value of .

The emf is cyclical in nature - it peaks in regular intervals, so there will always be the same amount of time elapsing between peaks.

They sometimes questions about hookes laws and spring extension

It's a uniform electric field so the potential varies linearly.

Cheers, you're a god really. I was confused because I didn't know if it was Delta V or just V, but was doing it in exam conditions so wasnt able to check.
So E would be 2/0.6 as you've said, but would the potential then be 2 at the midpoint?

I can't seem to get the right answer for this one,

I tried using the F = QQ/4piEoR^2 but it doesnt work, why?

Yeah the potential would be 2.0V midway between the two as the field is uniform so the same change in potential is observed over equal distances.

In that question it's asking for the gravitational force of attraction. In other words, you'd use:

Yet again just me failing to read the question

I did the same with another part where I used diameter instead of radius, it's going to affect me

Hopefully all these mistakes is because of the burnout of revising every day, and in the exam i'll do better with a fresh mind lol

Yeah, just read the question twice before attempting it - it takes longer but is more effective

They will do - PHYA4 is a synoptic unit, which means previous content will be tested in it. It's usually only in a very small way (2 marks maybe).

Personally I think it's really harsh. Other A levels don't test anything from AS.

They do, actually! Chemistry requires ongoing knowledge to be able to do the A2 stuff, and they do occasionally put in questions that are purely AS based. Maths is obviously constantly building on AS stuff, and apparently biology is absolutely awful for it - because of the essay questions and some other bits, you basically need to know the entire of AS. Almost all subjects do it I think, these are just the ones I know a bit about

Sorry yeah when I said other subjects I basically meant the only others I do :P besides obviously maths, history and computing are totally separate -,-

Physics 2 stuff is okay. Physics 1 is where my worry lies. I can't remember anything aside from debroglie wavelength

Lol there's not much else I'd assume they could ask you about particle stuff?

15. How would you answer question 9 on the multiple choice part of the jan 2013 paper

17. Thanks! Do you have these model answer cards for every multiple choice question?

True. Maybe they could put it in the energy mass part of unit 5 though. :s

Nope lol, unfortunately not. When people ask questions on the thread I just quickly grab a pen and paper and post my workings sorry!

I swear that's illegal.

(It's not, but you know what I mean )

I think the stress/strain topic is worth revising along with waves from last year as they seem to come up in SHM questions in the past.
