    Yeah and that can be displayed as I=k x 1/x2 then sub in K=Io/4pi and that makes the equation...

    I=(Io/4pi) (1/X2)
    which leads to I=Io/4pi(X)2
    Are you sure k isn't just equal to 1/4pi because Io is already in the equation here.... Not that it matters but if it was Io/4pi then you'd end up with Io squared on top

    No but I think we're up to date with the books now? so no-one knows what going to happen! haha But really the red lady will revive Jon Snow, quite obvious I think
    I dont watch the TV series i just assumed you knew that from the books haha,

    damn i really need to watch it sometime

    Astrophysicists, what are your guesses for the 6 marker? I hope it's something really nice like fusion occurring in stars lol

    what do you mean by fusion occurring in stars exactly?
    Hoping it's refracting vs reflecting telescopes for the six marker to be honest

    Please could someone explain how to do 4bii?
    1) calculate energy of copper

    2) calculate how much energy has been used to warm water to 100 degrees

    1) takeaway 2) would give you energy left

    Anyone still stuck on ideal gas derivative?
    Watch this amazing video by Bob Eagle and it'll be so so clear! Takes like 4 minutes. https://youtu.be/JOs8UQSWmos

    I'm thinking proof for the expansion of the universe
    What do you mean by this? Hubbles law compared to using 1a supernovae as standard cradles and using m-M=5logd/10?

    Can someone explain this question please

    The Treptow Giant Telescope in Berlin is the longest moveable refracting telescope on
    Earth. Some of its properties are summarised below:

    distance between the objective lens and eyepiece lens = 21 m
    angular magnification = 210
    objective lens diameter = 0.68 m

    1 (b) (i) Calculate the focal lengths of the eyepiece lens and objective lens of the Treptow Giant
    Telescope

    Yeah, it was on in 2010 I think. It's quite a nice easy one, keeping fingers crossed!

    Feel confident for this exam. Unit 5 is my strong point, and I've managed to get 120 UMS on every past paper under exam conditions. However, I was confident for the Unit 4 one and that went awfully, so I am a little on edge! I feel like the six markers could be horrible

    I'm also too worn out to revise, this is my 11th and final exam. Anyone in a similar situation?

    Sorry guys, i think i spammed the poll. It was my first time voting so i think it was my fault. I didn't even know that would happen. I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    How would you include the neutron ? Their binding energy is zero, its not a nucleus

    Can anyone please help me understand how the magnitude formula is used in real world? So if you have apparent magnitude and distance you can get absolute magnitude and compare it with other stars. Great. But how did you get apparent magnitude and distance in the first place? How does it fit with Wien's law, Stefan's law, spectral classes, intensity formul all that good stuff?

    Similar! 11th and not final exam :| Fortunately it's just M2 left on Monday after this so I can finally relax after tomorrow. I'm sure it'll go fine for you good luck!
