    is it 100% certain that good old AQA is gonna give those people credits who did a horizontal line form about 0 ? 3 marks for a line lol
    Yes. They asked a question and that was the only correct answer.

    2b) the first bit is right

    the 2nd mark is for
    a positive test charge will have to do work against the field to reach a point in this field from infinity (or something to that effect.)

    also wondering why 2) e) is 1560, cant remember if i got that or nah

    For 3B, I said the capacitor will not fully discharge, so not all the energy stored will be used, will this get a mark??
    Hopefully, that was one of the reasons I gave too.

    Could've sworn the answer to the couple question was B, the torque of a couple = Fs and B and I were constant

    It was I'm pretty sure. B was the 0.5x0.5 one.

    Can someone remember/verify this please? cheers

    (1) 4.4*10TOTHE POWER OF SOMETHING electrons? (not halved answer)

    (2) Was the 4 coils A (the one with the larger side?)

    (3) was the last ques power heat loss something?

    (4) was the mass on the scale definitely -322g? (many others have said 0 for some reason)

    And finally for damping
    Which box did you have to tick 1st or second? the ques wording was confusing me

    Additonal ques, why would the height not reach 1.4 in real life ?
    1) work done against air resistance
    2) thermal energy lost as heat by the motor?

    I put A because the longer side would experience more force tand the top side would experience no force as it is parallel to to B not sure tho

    1. yes, 2. no, 3. last multiple choice question? no, 4 yes

    Damping was I believe the second box?

    For the emf induced dont you multiply it by the number of turns? Because I got 4.8

    Anyone did emf divide by square root 2?
    YES. did you get 0.13A?

    for the raising height of 1.4m thing, in practice it wouldnt go as high because energy is lost due to air resistance of the air, plus the heating effect of the current??

    Other possible points for 1)a):

    Forced oscillations:
    When a periodic force (PF) is applied to a natural oscillator (NO) (Which has a natural frequency).
    If PF has frequency much lower than NO, then NO oscillates with roughly same amplitude as periodic force. Small/no phase difference.
    If PF has frequency much higher than NO, then NO oscillates with small amplitude. Variable phase difference and amplitude. Max amplitude when PF is pi/2 radians out of phase with NO and minimum amplitude when PF is in phase with NO.

    Also in resonance, oscillations may be violent.

    It was -322, it's been on other past papers ☺️
    Ignore that I read it wrong lol

    Can someone explain why Q20 in section A was -322g and not zero?

    At lowest in MC i got 20/25 and around 30-34ish on written (4 marks lost damping, 3 graph, 1 area under graph, 3 angle :/ , few more in written not sure if i lost 2 at potential ) would 50 be a B ?
