    I haven't done the question, just looked at it. I will do it later on today and let you know what I have done.

    Hey guys I don't understand question 3b june 14 R: https://8a40d6c38bafca75cc407741c0f3...%20Edexcel.pdf

    The examiners report says that the inequality is: tension <= frictional force + weight force down plane. But surely if tension is less that the two forces, it will keep on sliding down the plane?
    The frictional force is variable, up until fr=frmax. So it's at equilibrium where the component of the weight plus the frictional force equals the tension.

    With vertical elastic strings, how do I determine the direction of the acceleration? If the particle is pulled down from its equilibrium position, is the acceleration then downwards? And vice versa, if it is pulled up from its equilibrium position is the acceleration upwards?

    x (dot dot) = -w^2x

    Acceleration is always in the opposite direction to displacement, that's the condition for SHM.

    Does anyone else think the international papers are much harder than the normal ones?

    Definitely, they're good for preparation though

    Yeah the moments is potentially what could finish me, when the weight has two component moments about the axis...

    Oh do people take two moments. Hm i just extend the line of weight and find the perpendicular distance.

    I posted a solution to this yesterday let me find the post

    there u go

    on the first line of working the cos30 is cut out for some reason but it should say cos30 after the brackets
