    Do we ever need to use that formula? Never seen it in a paper :/

    My teacher gave us this formula as well. Although like you say, there has never been a question asked on it, it would be very easy for them to make a question up that made use of the equation so it wouldn't hurt to learn it imo. It's not too difficult to remeber anyway.

    Not sure. I might just keep it in the back of my mind just in case. It was in the text book so it might be worth knowing.
    Sure I'll try and remember it - PHYA4 first though!

    I don't personally take that option, but do you have the CGP revision guide? It seems to do all options besides Applied physics!

    Doesn't seem to be many taking Astrophysics options on here? Our school must be a bit random!

    I don't know why we only offer astro, there are 4 classes running this year. I know the only person who taught medical left last year and there wasn't enough interest anyway (literally 2 people in the year) but they never mentioned other options.
