    Oscilloscopes... are we required to know how they work?
    (Original post by AlexTheGreat!)
    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.
    It's been taken off the AS spec and moved to the A-level spec, so we don't need to know about it for these exams.

    AC current and how it actually works is in A2, but I think it can still be asked in reference to progressive waves

    When my physics teacher showed us a simulation of waves passing through a large slit, it showed the waves largely passing straight through, however it also showed some diffraction on the edge of the wave front, where the wave had diffracted around the slit.
    Thank you! Best of luck with the exam tomorrow

    Have you not heard? AQA have just announced on their Twitter feed that they are making alterations to their a level physics course as they believe it is to simplistic, I for one whole heartedly agree with this and I'm already counting down the days I till the release on August 29th

    I actually haven't heard it! Woah
    Did they say they thought the content of the spec in its current state is simplistic?

    I know we have a fun year ahead of us! Yes pretty much, don't you feel some parts are slightly too basic for A level? Especially unit 1

    What's the matter, revision getting to your tiny little head? Stop trying to confuse people, and do something useful with your time.

    Ha revision?! One had finished their reviosn before xmas, clearly you need to spend more time revising instead of looking for arguments across student rooms. Deplorable behaviour.
    Get a life....get swift cover
