    The diameter was 3m I'm sure

    The 6 marker this year was a joke. So i expected there to be a really hard relativity question following.. There was none and te maths was standard.. Although it being unstructured could cause a few problems. Nevertheless it is by far the easiest TP paper yet
    A number of people will be caught out by the potential differences,as both were quite involved,as was the relatvity question, although I do know a couple of people who guessed because it always falls to 75%

    Either:
    Random motion
    Negligible time of collisions with container wall
    Same rms velocity throughout
    No interactions between the molecules
    Particles have negligible size
    It's said moving so elastic collisions and random motion

    I meant for the radius of the star, what did everyone get?

    Oh I can't remember exactly it was pretty small in comparison to the radius of the sun, that's all I remember

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

    is ' obeys newtonian mechanics ' an answer?

    Yeah it was approx 1.5 times radius of the earth

    Yeah I put no interaction between the particles (which means the same as elastic collisions) and also Brownian motion

    For the motion question I said

    Molecules are moving randomly

    Molecules are moving in all directions in the x y z planes

    It should if it's about the molecules motions

    Something like 2 orders of magnitude less than the sun's radius. It wasn't exactly 2 orders less but I had it *10^6 rather than *10^8.

    No there is a subtle difference I believe haha

    Brownian motion refers to a different phenomenon, I think.

    We can argue this all day haha but yeah I agree with your last paragraph. However electrostatic force is a type of electromagnetic force but all electromagnetic forces aren't electrostatic forces as it's not always a static field. Do u get what I'm trying to say now?
    That's agreeing with me :lol:

    I hope I didn't seem particularly angry or anything haha.

    AQA may in fact not allow "electromagnetic" but that would be ****ing stupid

    9.5*10 ^6 ring any bells?

    Nope it refers to motion of gas particles in an ideal gas

    I think I may have put electromagnetic repulsion instead of force because I was thinking of the alpha particles being repelled by the nucleus so I wrote repulsion by accident instead of force -.- would that still be valid for a mark? :/
