    Well multiplied by the radius in order to get the torque so 3*11*cos(45)*0.125
    yeah that

    i couldnt show the kinetic energy as 2, so just used their value to find MoI

    how many squares did you count in the pv diagram

    Paper was decent except i stuggled with the photocell 6 marker for turning points


    Also sat down in exam and opened up to find astrophysics paper lol...had to be sent out for 30 minutes until they printed of the correct paper!
    Same thing happened to me, except I was supposed to be doing Astro and we got the Applied section instead. I think AQA must have messed up.

    I did a normal ray diagram with the converging lens being the eyepiece lens, the object between f and 2f and showed that the image formed was inverted, magnified and real. I also showed that the image was past 2f which would work with the values calculated.

    And I wrote that it was real, some people said it said that in the question but it said the OBJECT was real.
    Yeah i did that, kind of relieved. I thought maybe i read the question wrong

    You had to add 40 back on as there would still be background detected by the detector, I think you'll only drop 1 mark

    Agree, total GIFT of a six marker. Was dreading the astro 6 marker after last year

    last question was Dark energy. I think a lot of people wrote dark matter, but i dont think thats correct
    the penultimate quasar question was weird. I did intensity formula and tried using ratios and i got in the range of 10^-7 metres. Definetely wrong

    Holy **** that was such as easy 6 marker. The last question do you mean the weird quasar one or the VERY last one?

    I was about to draw the normal adjustment thing first but i couldn't remember how to do it and I had 10 minutes spare at the end to go back and I'm glad I did because i realised it wasn't the normal adjustment thing ahaha

    Well because it was rotating at constant speed you know the friction is equal to the force from the nozzle. So Ek=(friction force)*theta (work done against friction).

    I counted 292 little squares i think...basically each square = 1 Pa*m^3. I think i ****ed that part though. Ended up with Area*2000*(2pi/60)/4 because it was a 4 stroke engine (I don't know if it should be 2). Not sure if its correct but ended up with an efficiency of around 0.3

    It was omg I wrote 2 and a half pages got a bit carried away ahaha! And I got the very last (Dark energy i think) it was the quasar inverse square law one I didn't even know where to start!

    I know same the one last year was awful! Sad there were no binary stars though or life cycle of a star bc i love those ahaha
    I got the dark energy, it was that intensity one. I wrote I=I0/d^2 then I had no idea where to go from there :/

    I did! Thought it was v low considering water is about 4900
    SHC for water is around 4200.
    2100 is the right answer for ice !
