    I believe we will be getting the R paper because I just heard that the AQA Biology students got an R paper
    Does that to change anything?

    Do we need to know how to fully derive pV = 1/3 N m (Crms)^2?

    All it means is we'll have a different paper from the one that was originally intended for us....

    We shouldn't see a difference apart from the letter R on the paper's code. Don't know why everyone seems to think it's such a big thing!

    Always get stuck on these sorts of questions, can someone give me a hand please

    EDIT - just realised I can equate kinetic energy and eV

    I've got pretty much the whole unit (section A and B, astro) left to revise (I'm a moron). I've so far found that the CGP revision book (not the one linked in the OP but I think it's exactly the same?) isn't great at all for A2 physics - it doesn't go into much depth and I've found that I don't really understand stuff (and I can't answer questions) when I've used it (it was brilliant for AS though!)

    I really need an in-depth revision resource so I can get everything done ASAP so I can do some past papers. I've been looking at the online revision guide linked in the OP and I did use it for some of unit 4, but since it's a free resource I'm not really sure. So I was just wondering if anyone that's used it could give me some advice - is it useful and really accurate, and could I use it as my main source of revision? If I go through the whole guide can I expect to know all the content?

    Any other revision resources or tips would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    I have. There was one question during past papers that it was useful for. Definitely something you'll regret not learning if it does come up!

    I think its because they've quickly had to remake an exam. Usually they have exams prepared much in advance and checked frequently. I guess the perception is that the paper may be harder/abnormal as it hasn't been as thoroughly looked over and assessed to be suitable?

    I remember Edexcel for maths, I think two years ago, had some dilemma and made a crazy hard paper, with crazy low grade boundaries.

    Just found a question on a past paper asking to use the answer from the question above (find Hubble constant) to estimate the age of the Universe??? How?? Pretty sure I haven't been taught this at all!

    I believe you have to convert hubbles constant into it's SI units and then do 1/hubbles constant... not too sure though but it popped up somewhere in the cgp book

    combine s=d/t with v=hd for the speed of light
    Requires some annoying unit conversions

    This is true. Although I've always assumed that the second paper must be created at the same time as the first?

    There's a chance a question will be wrong and you'll end up with lower boundaries whether it's an original or R paper. I suppose if the second hasn't been looked through as thoroughly it may have more chance of a mistake.

    I highly doubt they 'rush' to get this second paper ready... if it was a 3rd paper i'd see why everyone was worried but given that they always have a 2nd, reserve paper I don't see the fuss.

    All the same, we shouldn't really see a difference on the day just might end up lucky with boundaries

    So if a twin was going on a journey the twin who went on the rocket to a distant planet would be older since they have accelerated and de- accelerated hence are not in an inertial frame of reference?
