    -i+j=0 ??
    then can you rearrange to get j=i

    thanks
    Well the i and j components have equal magnitude but opposite direction (assuming you are taking east and north as the positive directions in usual fashion)

    Thank you,
    What other scenarios can they give other than north west?

    Thanks

    Hey, how much does it matter that I used a method that the mark scheme doesn't mention? I get the correct answer but I have used a different SUVAT equation than specified in the mark scheme.

    Since the exam is in 9 hours can you please answer this quickly?

    Hey, quick question - how many significant figures do we leave are answers to

    AND, do we leave it as a fraction if we can

    Never fractions, right? I.e. if the answers 5/7 I'd like it as 0.714?

    Well i dont think it really matters, as in the mark scheme it allows both

    Whenever a numerical value of g is required, take g = 9.8 ms^-2 and give your answer to either two or three S.F.
    So if you are not using g it is fine to leave the answer as a fraction.

    As long as you use a suvat equation with the correct signs (+ or -) and get the right answer then it will be fine. Doesn't have to be the one stated in the mark scheme and obviously examiners get a much more detailed MS.

    yh you might need to apply them especially when working with vector triangles.

    Its helpful for say a triangle of forces question makes it easy to solve. Just go over it shouldnt take long, its basic C2 stuff (cosine/ sine rule)

    What about if, with the questions with like tan(theta) = 3/4, i just put in cos(arctan(3/4) instead of the value of theta or precalculating it??
