    What do we use as g?

    I found a question where the markscheme says 9.81 but I thought we were to use 9.8 unless told otherwise?
    The value on the data and formulae sheet is 9.81, so I think you're supposed to use 9.81, unless told otherwise.

    I know a lot of people who found both sets of those specimen papers easy and when we did them in class I got 65 marks for paper 1 and 63 marks for paper 2. So I don't mind if they put out a paper of similar difficulty
    now that we've established you are a genius, would you consider doing an unofficial mark scheme?
    I know people who did okay on both papers but you have to admit they are harder than previous years... if you cant see that maybe your not as smart as u think lols

    hi, it's pretty ridiculous on 2.3 when you get a unit of (kgm^2s^-3) that you should know it's power in Watts. Sure, I got it with the help of google but there is 0 chance I'd get it in an exam. There is so many tricks in these papers that, for the first year, it's going to be hell. Let's pray for low grade boundaries! Sadly boys, we are Guinea pigs, good luck on Tuesday!

    hi, for question 3.2, why is the distance of the shelf not 0.5 m but in fact 0.25m?

    The centre of mass of the shelf is at the middle of the shelf, and the middle of the shelf is 0.25m away from the hinge.

    You just need to know the SI units: m,kg,s,A,K. Once you know those you can work everything else out:

    \text{Joules} = \frac{1}{2}mv^2 \rightarrow J = kg m^2 s^{-2}


     \text{and\ Power} = \frac{\text{Energy}}{\text{Time}  } \rightarrow P = kg m^2 s^{-3}

    hey guys are we really not assessed on anything about practicals in paper 1? as in, i don't need to know how to do the required practicals but i need to know just section 1? (but also is there any resource that simply describes all the practicals??)

    You need to know the entire specification of content for the 1st exam tomorrow.

    You don't need to know details of how to complete the required practicals, or the practical skills regarding uncertainty/calculations/errors until the other exam.

    Oscilloscopes... are we required to know how they work?
    I dont remember seeing it on the spec but it's in the text book so i would learn it to be on the safe side... but remember it will be for waves not AC electricity.
