    Do you have to get a certain number of questions right on the multiple choice to get a good grade overall?
    Nope, its total mark that counts

    Idk I feel like ours was easier but maybe I just liked the paper as a personal preference

    Yeah parts were quite nasty but it all depends on what you like as an individual

    I found June 2014 much much harder than this paper... Yet, the boundaries don't seem to imply that.

    Well it's the same thing since the area of a triangle is 1/2 height(charge) x width (voltage) which is exactly as the formula E=1/2 QV on the formulae sheet you would have otherwise used.
    Did you remember to multiply 2.2 by 10^-6 ?
    Shouldn't have needed to, the answer was in micro joules IIRC.

    Thank you! I do really badly on the multiple choice but am better at section B and better at unit 5 so I'm hoping it all works out 😅

    it is Y to X because the magnitude was -2F
    That's not how magnitude works....

    Did anyone get the question where you had to show that the energy of the alpha particle was the total energy x some fraction, no one I've talked to at college has got it.

    what do people think the A and A* boundary will be, given how straight-forward this paper was?

    will it be higher than june 2014?

    Only got to the part where E(alpha) = E - E(nucleus) = E - 0.5NV^2 and subbed in V^2. So hopefully 2 method marks

    Dies anyone remember the voltage values for the change in energy stirred between the 2 in question 1

    does that not seem a bit low, given the paper wasn't too bad?

    No one I know got that algebra one for the Ek, was so hard. Didn't need it for the next part anyway.

    Heeey, how did you guys calculate the additional voltage (if that was the question) from the graph in question 1??

    majority would have dropped 4 marks straight away on that rearrangement question .
