Well for now I'll transcribe the paper, http://imgur.com/a/sWBSn#9 has figures

1(a) Which quantities are vectors and scalars? 
Vector - velocity, displacement
Scalar - speed, distance

(b) A tennis ball is thrown vertically downwards and bounces on the ground, the ball leaves the hand with initial speed 1.5m/s at a height 0.65m above the ground. The ball rebounds and is caught when travelling upwards with a speed of 1.0m/s

(i) Show the speed of the ball is about 4m/s just before it strikes the ground 
(ii) Sketch a velocity-time graph for the verticle motion of the tennis ball

(c) In a game of tennis, a ball is hit horizontally at a height of 1.2m and travels a horizontal distance of 5.0m before reaching the ground. The ball is at rest when hit. Calculate the initial horizontal velocity given to the ball when it was hit

Two waves traveling on opposite directions, with same amplitude and frequency, they have nodes and anti nodes. Nodes are formed when the two waves destructively interfere, they are 180° out of phase and cause a total displacement of zero, anti nodes consecutively interfere, in phase with each other, giving the maximum displacement (positive or negative) from the equilibrium position

For 1c I got 20.2 because I multiplied it by 2 due to s = (u+v)/2*t, and the question saying the ball was hit from rest

Everyone else is saying 10.1 though

for the definition I was stupid and wrote that ' in a system of equilibrium the sum of the clockwise moments = the sum of the anticlockwise moments' but after that I said it is the force x perpendicular distance. would I get any marks?

I'd say at least 1, if you mentioned force x perpendicular that is 2 marks I think

That's the principle of moments. You may get a mark for saying it is force * perp distance, but you are pretty much giving two answers, depends on the examiner.

ugh i know im so stupid, he probably won't even read it coz he thinks its wrong

(Original post by sam/)
I got an answer of 10, I think you had to use v² = u² + 2as, as you are told that the ball is hit from rest (u = 0 m/s), the distance the ball travels (s = 5 m), and acceleration (due to gravity) is always 9.81m/s².
But isn't that the vertical velocity?

for question 1b proving it was bout 4ms-1 I did some kind of suvat but ended up with something like 3.57, which I rounded to 4. would I get any marks coz its not what everyone else had?

Probably not, if you're lucky you may get a method mark, but they'll definitely need 3.87 for one mark

1(b)(ii) Would I get 1 mark for a straight line from X-Y?

3(b) Horizontal driving force makes a constant acceleration. I said that the Driving force should increase at a constant rate for a constant velocity as force is proportional to acceleration. How many marks would I get out of 3?

4(a) Is Young Modulus and Stiffness constant correct?

4(c) For this I did the line up parallel to the limit of proportionality and then a straight line to 0. Would I get 2 marks?

4(e) For this I found out the volume of the copper and then the mass. Would I get 1 mark for the volume working out?

7(a) I put the fringe spacing the same width but the intensity after the central fringe a bit less and the rest the same as that. Would I get 2 marks?

7(b)(ii) For this I said that it puts the white light into one slit of diffraction along with the double slits being an equal distance from the single slit so they are coherent. Would I get 1 mark?

7(c)(ii) Is saying the central maximum is wider correct because green light has a higher

7(c)(ii) Is saying that there is wider maxima because green light has a wider wavelength correct?

7(c)(iii) For this I said use different slit separations where it is measured with a vernier. I said take at least 8 slit separations. The single slit is not needed I said. I said measure the distance from slit to screen with a ruler with mm marking to increase accuracy and the same for fringe spacing. Then I said find wavelength with ws/D. Would I get 3 marks?

Breaking stress is different for each material, I'm sure it's one of the answers.
And graph is from X to -4, then at tA it starts at 4 at the top and goes down to Y, straight lines.
2b iv) 3.3 j
3aII) 440N
Name of the point is Yield point 4bi
4C is a line straight from 0.10 on the curve to something on the x axis greater than Q but less than 0.1
5a) wavelength decreases, freq constant, speed decreases
5ci) Total internal reflection
7bi) same frequency and constant phase relationship or difference
7cii) bigger fringe spacing so fringes are more spread out or dark fringes are wide.

Np 4bi is not the yield point. It is the elastic limit.

Sir, read the question, it says it's already past elastic limit. It is beyond where the behaviour of the material becomes changed irreversibly.

Can someone 100% confirm what the light intensity pattern should be.
Also, looking at the diagram alpha=8.93 and theta = 53/54, without a doubt.

Elastic limit is defined as the point beyond that the material changes irreversibly.. If it were the yield point we would see a sudden increase in strain for a constant load. This doesnt happen

I wouldn't say without a doubt, that question rekt, I got 8.91 and 53.5
And yes I think I read the question wrong it is Elastic limit fk me
I think they want the normal one, big peak with high intensity in the middle and gets smaller either side. It's either that or peaks have same intensity which never came on before.
