    I thought the physics ones weren't stolen though
    They weren't, physics was unaffected AQA even said

    Can anyone explain what electron diffraction has got to do with unit 5?

    Its used to estimate the radius of the nucleus

    I won't go into that much detail coz i dont think the experiment part is that important but heres a few points that may be useful
    Its a more accuarate method in comparison to the alpha particles because electrons dont experience the snf so there is no electrostatic repulsion electrons display wave particle duality so they can be diffracted
    A moving electron has a de broglie wavelength at high speeds
    Electron scattering is easier to interpret
    Electrons five less recoil and greater resolution

    equations: Rsintheta=0.61*lambda

    E=hc/lambda

    its come up in the past as a 6 marker assessing its advantages and disadvantages

    I do OCR, but the paper was wayyyy to synoptic. You could've gotten away without revising at all which is really annoying. It was too much of a suggest/imply your knowledge for my liking

    Just to clear things up for those who weren't sure:
    Physics Unit 4 was NOT affected by the stolen van
    However Unit 5 IS, so we are getting the reserve paper today
    Thanks AQA :adore:

    I personally don't think the 6 marker will be on the gas law derivation. It may possible come up as maybe a 3/4 marker but not the 6. It just doesn't have the right appeal to it, it's more formulas than quality of written communication.

    For a 6 marker could they mark you down if you used bullet points or do you have to write in paragraphs? I've always been told to write in paragraphs :/
