    I don't think so (did it in my head so you might very well be right), no, did you get R_p = 8g?
    on my sheet i wrote R=3g+4g+1g=13g addition skills competent

    xD Your method is fine, then. Just a silly arithmetic slip. :yep:

    that cost me 3 marks in a C2 paper we did in class, i though that when i was solving for y one of the brackets was (13-10)² i got that as 2² >.>
    that was 2 marks and the other question i just didn't write the answer >.> cost me 1 mark, overall i got 71/75 which i thought wan't bad, i guess i can post the things on here(note: we did the paper in 2 separate lesson so the order of me doing the questions is a bit weird)

    you can help me this time xD

    Explain briefly the significance of modelling the parcel as a particle.

    is one that air resistance is a factor?

    No air resistance
    modelling as a particle allows you to say the distance of the parcel from a a given point is exactly (....) metres

    ok thanks also if the question says non-uniform plank do i put the mass of the plank right at the centre of it?

    A nice page from Edexcel's textbook just to quickly read over. Don't think you need to memorize all this

    Not sure if your exam board has all these terms too

    No, that's what "non-uniform" means, that the mass isn't at the centre, you'll need to label the distance of the centre of mass from one end as 'x' and find it.

    okay in that case could you help draw this diagram for me then? i can't seem to get it right.

    A non-uniform plank AB has length 5d and mass 8m. It's in equilibrium in a horizontal position resting on supports at the points P and Q where AP=2d and AQ=4d. A parcel of mass 6m is placed on the plank at B. The plank is on the point of tilting about Q. By modelling the plank as a rod and the parcel as a particle, calculate the distance of the centre of mass of the plank from A.

    Think about what it means for something to be tilting about Q. What does that imply about the reaction force at P?

    thanks a bunch


    itt just means that reaction force at P=0

    Yes, that's correct. So you should be able to find R_q fairly easily by resolving vertically.

    so when Rp=0 does that mean that when i take moments about A i ignore Rp since it's 0 and use 8mgx+30mgd=14mg

    Yes, but it's not =14mg, you forgot to multiply by the distance of Q from A.
