    Could someone please explain question 3 a part ii from this paper please https://60abffc9b401b1c0936e01291c15...%20Physics.pdf
    I just can't understand it
    Here is your desired thought process in terms of how AQA like to word questions:
    First clue - 'behaves like a spring' automatically F=Kx should spring to mind (see what I did there lol)

    Second clue - 'Hooke's law' > just reinforces my initial point about F=Kx.

    Now you're given the force (9.81 x 58) and you're also given X the spring constant K. Rearrange and there you have it sir

    Can any smart person inform me as to why an object feels weightless if it is on a planet rotating with a centripetal force equal to the object's weight?

    Well I definitely remember it having something to do with the flux through the secondary coil.

    Ah yes, it's coming back: A changing magnetic field is needed in the secondary coil because (by Faraday's law) the rate of change of flux linkage needs to be nonzero to induce an emf in the secondary coil. A direct current will produce a steady field so rate of change of flux linkage = 0 --> no induced emf, which is bad. Great, thanks!
    Hey Isaac,

    Can you explain the key points which need to be mentioned when answering how a transformer operates, please

    Thanks

    Not entirely sure but this may help

    F = mv^2/r F=mg

    mg = mv^2/r

    g = v^2/r

    - could you tell me what question you're talking about plez <3

    Mass of water = pv
    so 1000 x (2x10^-4) = 0.2 kg


    Speed = vol/area

    7.2x10^-4 / 2x10^-4 = 3.6m/s


    Momentum = 0.2 x 3.6
    =0.72


    IGNORE THIS

    Hey I think the hardest part of the question is getting round the kWh thing but that's just a unit of Energy (E = Pt). If you convert this unit to make it Kilowatt-seconds, you can just use your previous answer to work out the cost.

    Hope this helps.

    I don't think you're looking at the right part of the markscheme for that question

    But why does it happen when mv^2/r=mg? >:O

    Sorry I'm definitely the wrong person to ask I only know the cgp explanation (if you don't have the book I'd be happy to copy it out for you)
