    On the 2014 paper the very last part of the last question, it says
    m1 will not be moving radially
    What does this mean?
    and what is the difference between moving horizontally and radially- are they the same?

    "not moving radially" means not moving along ANY radius of the circle (be it horizontal or whatever).

    The length of each half of the table represents the radius of the circle that is "created" when the table rotates. So you don't want the mass to be moving length-ways across the table, that's all.
