3. Has anyone got any good ways of learning the Optics section from Unit 2? Having a hard time with it.
4. Good luck to anyone sitting the exam today.
5. How did people find it?

How did people find it?
I might scrape a U
7. Pretty good. I made a few stupid mistakes though.
8. What did people get for the question about which lens to choose out of the four choices?

What did people get for the question about which lens to choose out of the four choices?
I went diverging in order to make the virtual image, but was unsure about the focal length, so just guessed 100mm
10. Same

What did people get for the question about which lens to choose out of the four choices?
I put converging with focal length 150
12. I out diverging cause it was virtual, and 150mm.
But I got the wrong focal point because I was supposed to use -1/v as the image was virtual

13. How about that string 5 marker question? I got the concept wrong out I didn't find the gradient so ill probably get the equation right

14. For the five marker i used the formula

and got the answer to be around 6.37 x 10^something which was within the range.
15. I got like 6.2*10^-3 for 2 of the strings so it was in the range
16. Definitely my worst exam yet
17. For the lens one u=100mm v=-300mm(virtual so (-) ) and then used that in the equation i got 150mm and it was converging cause the focal length was positive
For the mass/length one i got that it was 6.(something)x10 to the -3 so it was in the range.
Did anybody else get these?
18. I got 6.25 x10-3 kgm-1 and a converging lens with focal length 150mm
19. Guys what did u get for the potential divider question?? And for the one about if the circuit in part b was a good representation?
20. Didn't like that paper. Started off easy and ended easy but all the stuff in between was like. WHAT. Haha.
