    Can someone please explain this?
    I dont understand why induced EMF is at greatest when the rotation at B is parralel to the field lines? Because this means its not cutting any at this point?

    Emf is proportional to the change in flux and when the cool is parallel a change in flux has taken place from BAN when the coil was perpendicular to 0 when it is parallel. This change causes an emf to be induced.

    Can someone explain why potential is negative? and how many and which satellite equations do we need to know? cheeeeeeerss
    potential isn't negative is a scalar quantity

    It is negative actually, because to accelerate something towards Earth (attraction), we get work out of the system rather than having to put work into a system

    Can I ask, if momentum is a vector, how come when it rebounds momentum becomes 2mv?

    An elastic collision will cause a colliding object to change from momentum = mv to momentum = -mv, since velocity is reversing and all is conserved. It doesn't change to 2mv, but the total overall momentum change over the collision is 2mv

    Cheers! But how come the velocities don't cancel?

    do we always take the direction positive which the momentum acts ? (i.e. he football ques with the impulse graph)

    Does a step down transformer have less turns on the secondary than the primary?

    Step down has more on the primary less on the secondary

    Visa versa for step up

    Yep number of turns is proportional to velocity

    I just remember it as step up - voltage up, turns up

    Step down- Voltage down, number of turns down.
