    Anyone else staying up late cause Astro was taught like ass?
    Sort of, I'm waking up at 5 instead so Yeah we both losing sleep

    oh hell no gas please
    I am hoping for nuclear reactor or stuff about nuclear energy, that will be nice
    I really hope gases doesnt come up or any experiment ones altho i think electon scattering is a good one and only a comparison of alpha and electron scattering has come up before so hopefully!

    Sorry mate but that's what i think, only one gases question ever. They've pretty much exhausted the nuclear topic in terms of 6 markers
    What sort of gases question are you thinking then?

    maybe kinetic theory of gases equation derivation?

    hoping for comparison of 2 methods of finding nuclear radius!

    That one was pretty much done before a few years back was it not? Can't really think of any others :/

    really? never seen it before. last one was pressure of a gas i believe

    But it uses kinetic theory to show the pressure of a gas do you not? Which derivation are you suggesting? Sorry, it's getting late and i'm a little confused!

    Actually is there any chance the six marker focus on thermal physics?
    e.g. Measurement of Specific Heat Capacity..

    So you hope they repeat June 2012? I mean I expect them to steal some questions from past papers but that's asking for a lot for them to get one that recent!

    sorry, talking about p=1/3Nmc^2 + assumptions.

    i get what you mean now actually, guess i'm trying to say it'd probably be the same except bit more mathematical

    like an isa type question?

    This exam is like a tale of two halves. Astro, I'm uber confident on, but Section A...ugrhh! Since it's my last exam I might just stay up all night for Nuclear & Thermal

    Ah yes, ok! See I hope that comes up but think it's a little unlikely because the other one was similar :/ Then again it was a few years back now so you never know! That would be quite a nice one to come up because it's always satisfying once you finish writing it out

    But I can't think of any other gas related ones which I'm guessing is why not many have come up!

    Search this thread. There's some good ones a few pages back

    yeah true, someone else was saying about a thermal physics question which could be likely, maybe an isa style experiment, which would not be good haha

    Its weird coz on one hand thermal has only come up once but they always stick to nuclear so Im just going to revise everything i guess got a long night ahead....
