    Yeah I'm in the same boat. Self teaching and I can't find any good resources

    The part I dread most is the COP stuff, it's very hit and miss at the moment for me
    Same here, all of the engine stuff I don't get any of it. :sad: I can do rotational because I've done M2 and M3 luckily

    What resources are you using? I'm just using past papers and the specification :afraid: you got any that you can link to me please?

    umm guys, are the kinetic theory assumptions the same as the ideal gas assumptions?

    I haven't even revised yet. I'll get back to you if I find something cool. I'll likely do old spec questions for applied and study mark schemes

    There's no such thing as ideal gas assumptions only kinetic theory assumptions

    There most definitely are ideal gas assumptions. By definition there must be because no gas is ideal and so you have to assume a few things to then treat a gas as ideal. An example being there are no interactions between each gas molecule which is obviously far from the truth as there are van de waals forces between them and if you drop the assumption, you end up with the van der waals corrected ideal gas equation which is called the van der waals equation of state. You could argue that there are crossovers between kinetic theory assumptions and ideal gas assumptions which is true.

    But in effect they are the same since they have the same assumptions right ?

    Yeah that's my argument. Saying there is no such thing as an ideal gas assumption/s implies that you assume nothing to treat a gas as ideal.

    Can someone please help with qs 4c on section A ? How do we know that more time would be spent below 25 degrees?!
    Thanks

    lol with the applied physics part in section B I think I prefer section A
    Yeah I think Unit 5 would be a lot better without the silly optional topics.

    Look in the unit 4 park of the formula sheet - electric fields. W=QV.

    It's the same just different symbols. Work done and energy is the same. Remember energy is defined as the ability to do work. V is the potential difference. e is the charge, Q.

    Formula just changed to fit electrons in a field.
