    There wasn't actually any evidence that people who stole the van took the papers, there has been no leaks ect..

    However AQA said they will not take the risk, hence they are giving us replacement papers

    AQA’s A-level physics paper was not one of those in the stolen van, the spokesman said.

    Anyone doing Applied have any predictions for the 6 marker? Something completely different maybe? :/

    He was talking about PHYA4 not PHYA5, the spokesman. These are the papers that were stolen.

    I'm thinking it may be fridges, momentum or engine.

    Can somebody check these definitions please?

    Activity - the activity of a radioactive isotope is the amount of atoms that decay in one second

    Decay Constant - the decay constant of a radioactive isotope is the probability that one atom of the isotope will decay in one second

    Half life - the half life of a radioactive isotope is the time taken for the initial mass of the isotope to half.

    Do we need to remember all the stuff about the stages of hydrogen burning & all that?

    forhalf life definition its not the mass that halves its the number of radioactive atoms that halve.

    If you learnt to read you will notice that it mentions the previous unit 4 paper and its error, and then at the end of the article it claims this was not a re-written paper. The paper we are doing IS DIFFERENT!

    Would anybody be kind enough to tell me why in june 13 paper the mark scheme doesn't take account of the mass of the positrons?

    The mass of them is so small that they can be assumed to be negligible

    But do they not have the same mass as the electrons?

    so there is a chance that the papers MIGHT be easier?
