    Thought it was a fairly good paper overall, although my class was split, with about 2/3 saying it was good/alright and the other 1/3 saying it was hard. For the pressure question I got something like 83000 Pa, any thoughts?

    I got about 170000 Pa??

    The pressure in the vacuum had to be lower than normal, and the normal pressure was 100000 Pa.

    i think you had to take that away from the 100kpa atmospheric pressure

    did anyone get 172 for the bullet velocity?

    Whoops i probably added instead of taking away then, didnt think about it having to be lower

    Yes, but I put 170 because 2 sf and stuff

    I'm kicking myself because i ran out of time and just needed 30 more seconds to write my answer to the 2nd last question where you had to show that intial KE was not equal to final KE for 2 marks (all i have to do was work out 1/2mu^2 and 1/2mv^2 to show they were different and KE was not coserved, I also skipped the whole Boltzmann factor Q

    How many marks do you think that double spread on the boltmann factor was?

    I think it was something like the weight of the masses = 1.96 N
    Area of nozzle = 1.13*10^(-4)
    Pressure = F/A
    Pressure ~= 17000
    100000 - 17000 = 83000 Pa

    anyone get something like (200*9.8)/0.000113... = ~1.7x10^7 for the pressure??

    And then for the precision bit after, (second area)/(first area) = 6.25???

    *edit* oh no it was 100g not 100kg.... of course... okay so like 17,345Pa??
    Then what are you supposed to do with the 100kPa atmospheric pressure?

    The masses were in grams so that would give a weight of 0.2*9.8 = 1.96
    See my post above for my reasoning, not sure if correct though.

    I didn't know you had to do a calculation for the precicion bit, I just tried to explain in words why a larger area readuced percentage error

    That one asking about the kinetic energy not being conserved in the collision... did everyone else get really big energy losses, like 14J before and 0.2J after?

    Oh, I see. Well I think it was out of 3 marks so not too many lost... Maybe got one for equating weight and pressure x area...

    I would say standard boundaries, around 46 or 47 for an A
