# Edexcel AS/A2 Mathematics M1 - 8th June 2016 - Official Thread watch

1. I'll be posting model answers tomorrow
2. Does anyone know what 3 & 7a were worth? I got 7a completely wrong and I got the acceleration of 3 but didn't get the right speed.
3. (Original post by G4slyness)
It was I = M(V - U)
M was 0.4, V = +/-3.5 and U = -/+4 (depending on which direction you defined as positive)

I = 0.4 (3.5 - -4) or 0.4 (-3.5 - 4)
= 0.4 * 7.5 or 0.4 * -7.5
= 3 Ns
I got V wrong because I accidentally missed out g after rearranging to get a.

Otherwise, my working out was correct. How many marks do you reckon I'd lose?
4. If i used 0.5 for the mass for the acceleration instead of 1.5 would i get working
I wrote R=1.5g +0.5*0.5

would i get a mark for showing the correct method?

They were both worth 7 marks
6. ****ed up on the first question I said the i component was equal..

I'll recon for just the acceleration right that will not be about 2 marks max
8. So i messed up on the Train question and that vector question. I used triangles for the vector question and got 5√2/2 (i + j). I dont know how many marks id get for that out of 7? The actual answer was 5/2 (i+j)
9. If u don't take direction into account for the impulse question, you make the mistake of getting 0.2 and not 3, but I think u will only lose 1 mark for that.

Cheers absolute legends. How many marks for 0.2 you think?
if you showed all your working you should get 5/7. You'll drop an M1 for incorrect equation and A1 for wrong answer
11. I got d=1.6 and M=66. I dont see how thats wrong
12. I put southwest for the Direction for 8b?? surely this is right
13. in dont get how the coff of friction was 0.73, I got 0.96
14. Same I was thinking about whether to put 45 degrees or south west

I accidentally did one of the questions in pencil :/, marks or no?
Yes you will.

Cheers mate, any suggestion on the boundaries, im thinking 59-61ish?
if so i could be in line for 100ums

I got that too, did anyone else?
So did I

18. Any suggestions on the the A boundary?
19. I have no idea what question 7a) was asking but I drawn a graph with know calculate degree from the vector( ~26 , ~64 and ~90) with root 5 from (-i,2j), and I gusee the F2 is 4.3 something

yaaaaaas
