    About 4.8*10^17 s so around 15 billion years. I just did d/v because there was no point calculating the hubble constant. Are you allowed to do that?
    Can you explain this please?? I calculated the Hubble constant

    Highest cap was 67 lol june 2011

    I believe it was 1 mark for ticking the box then 2 marks explaining, I found the rest of the paper relatively easily apart from the odd few. How about you ?

    Yeah found it ok apart from the astro 6 marker, I stated the formula of how to calculate v but didn't do the calculation and I got a time period of just over 5 days

    There is no chill in this thread rn. I'm pretty sure they'll accept both electromagnetic and electrostatic

    I don't doubt that, I just don't appreciate it when someone tells me that I don't understand something when I do so I'm arguing my point 😉

    Ye the 6 marker was difficult, I believe I got the time period to be around 4 days ?

    The hubble constant is v/d anyway, so doing 1/H you just get d/v, which you might as well calculate from the data straight away.

    I got 4.9 * 10 ^17 , I think thats due to rounding the distance, will I lose marks?

    What did the AstroGuys get for the absolute magnitude? Was it -0.097 or a similar number?

    Yes I do, electricity requires a flow of electrons but this was alpha particles not electrons so there wasn't electricity! If it were electrons being deflected by the nuclei I'd agree with you as a magnetic field would be induced but in this case it wont

    electricity is flow of charge

    I got -8.7 * 10^-3
    So about an order of magnitude smaller.

    PHYA5D; Turning points was relatively standard, majority of the the section A everyone sat was good, the QWC was good, the paper as a whole was nice. I'm unsure on boundaries as there was one year the cap was 67 for 5D, aside from that it lies around 58-60, and this years was harder than last because last years was very easy but had great UMS. I'd probably say it's around 63 cap from previous papers. Thoughts?

    You're missing the point entirely. The electromagnetic force is in play, that has nothing to do with whether "electricity" was present.

    Electromagnetism is a field of physics, and may refer only to changing electric fields and induced magnetism.

    But the electromagnetic force is one of the four fundamental forces of nature, and is in play in this question.

    Depends on exactly what value you read from the graph, but a correct answer should have been very close to 0, either positive or negative.
