    You seem pretty excited about the banter. Maybe calm yourself down a bit and you might emit a photon.
    is this on the spec?

    Can someone help with June 2013 section A question 3i?

    How is the formula produced on the mark scheme explained in words?
    Why is it Tf-3 for the coke and not 3-Tf?

    half of A level physics is just setting one equation equal to another in the formula book and rearranging. we'll be fine guys

    yea but during B+ decay a proton changes into a neutron. So the nucleon number stays the same but the number of protons decreases by one and neutron number increase by one

    If proton number changes then so will neutron number because neutrons = nucleon number - proton number

    Hey guys, I made a thread for Astrophysics discussion after tomorrows exam to prevent confusion as everyone will be talking about their optional topics!

    For 3ii https://089204f2d4bdbe672bf2453c0501...%20Physics.pdf is my method not acceptable?

    I done heat gained by ice= heat lost by glass and cola
    = 0.25(840)(8.41-3) + 0.2(4190)(8.41-3)
    =5669.68
    Then I divided it by the latent heat of fusion of ice to get 0.01697....? Is this fine? Their way is completely different and I didn't use the heat capacity of water at all

    Help!

    Where does the bold bit come from?

    Edit: I see what you've done.

    You haven't quite equated the thermal energy change correctly. The thermal energy change of the ice will be equal to it's latent heat plus the thermal heat in raising its temp to 3 degrees

    So because the beaker and the ice cooled to 3c, we need to assume the ice is now water at 3c?

    Yeah they mean that the lowest temperature it got to was 3 degrees (ignoring the surroundings) which is when the whole liquid mixture gets to thermal equilibrium. So yes, the water that was ice, is now liquid water at 3 degrees at that point.

    Same. Absolutely cannot wait until 11am tomorrow morning.

    I'm sort of in a lucky position in that I think I've already managed to meet my offer with my other A levels, which is good because I'm absolutely screwed for this exam.

    Off the top of my head the only one that isn't on there is P1 * V1 / T1 = P2 * V2 / T2

    That can be worked out from the ideal gas law anyway can't it?
