Sorry about that - they should have been rectified now.
How did you come by these?

JK, yeah thanks! Judging by this paper and last couple of years, they are getting easier and easier...

I'm doing these exams for my sins - my mocks went a lot better than I'd expected, but then last year's papers were quite nice. I wonder what AQA have in store for us...

Looking forward to all the physics exams, with the exception of questions on waves.


How's everyone doing with content - how much do you have left, if any?

Just AC electricity I think.

(Going off on a tangent, does anyone know why it is always written ac instead of AC? It really irritates me for some reason )

Proving Young's Double Slit equation. Other than that, everything else is okay, I think. You?

Waves is the worst topic in unit 2 in my opinion too. Diffraction gratings, why you do dis to me?!

Haha, I've had to learn it all myself. I wasn't going to wait until one week before the exam - would be too risky, haha.

What's your favourite topic?

Hi Guys!
Guys I got a few question with the January 2013 paper

http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...1-QP-JAN13.PDF <- Paper

http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...W-MS-JAN13.PDF <- Mark scheme

Can someone explain 4Aiii) Where do they get the 1.63 x 10^-19 in the MS ... it seems as if I'm missing something quite simple out but can't figure out what :/

6B) the table ... How did they get 2V for C-D

Thanks

Haven't got time to do 6B with you right now but you are right about 4aiii . youre missing something very simple. The energies given in the diagram are in eV. You must convert to J to do your calculation. 1J=ev * (1.6x10^19)
