    Can someone help me with this question: Question 9 http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...1-QP-JAN13.PDF thanks
    There is a formula for it. x(n+1) = yn, where x is the pendulum with the shorter time period. In this case:
    1.90(n+1) = 1.95n
    1.90n + 1.90 = 1.95n
    0.05n = 1.90 therefore n = 1.9÷0.05 = 38 oscillations.

    Just to clarify. Is no work done when a charge moves perpendicular to a uniform electric field? Is work only done when the charge moves parallel to the field lines?

    Thanks Does this formula apply for all situations regardless of the time difference between oscillations?

    Gravitational field strength is a vector quantity, given by g = GM/r2

    Make the two field strengths equal and find the distance:

    let x be the distance of equal field strength from M

    GM/x2 = 4GM/(d-x)2
    4x2 = (d-x)2
    4x2 = d2 -2xd +x2
    3x2 + 2xd - d2 = 0
    d = 1/3, d = -1 (using quadratic formula)

    but d > 0, so d = 1/3 only

    the distance is d/3 from the planet of mass M

    so the answer is y/d = 1/3
    Cheers i understand it now thanks.

    Sure, here it is Question 6 btw
    I've asked a friend and we both got the same answer (from P to Q). I dont know what the hell this Mark shcme is saying. The field doesnt even go in that direction

    Does anyone know why last year's grade boundaries were so low? 59/75 was 120/120 UMS.

    moving perpendicular to a field uses no work as its an equipotential line however moving in any other direction uses work i believe.

    I really have no idea. Maybe a lot of students didnt do as well. Hopoefully it's like that for us!!!

    I hope so, we have to do Medical as our option unit, my only hope for an A* is a strong mark in Unit 4

    There was a printing error in one of the questions; the capacitor one.

    Yeah I don't really understand it either Is it P to Q or Q to P? I thought it would've been Q to P using the left hand rule?

    Are we meant to round numbers for further calculations? I tend to use exact values but often get a different answer from the mark scheme but I just assumed it's better to keep the accuracy.

    That makes sense, damn, looks like an A* might be out of reach. Thanks for explaining +1

    Sorry Q to P is right.

    I honestly don't know which one to do first...
