# 2016 Official AQA New Spec AS Level Physics Paper 1 - 24th of May 2016 watch

1. (Original post by Psraim)
Thanks a lot, don't know why my teacher didn't give it. Also, do you have the markscheme for it? And the second paper too, perhaps?

Thank you so much, I really needed those papers.
3. Can anyone help me on the physics spec 1 paper question 0 3 . 2

The MS says Path difference = 2 (d2 – d1) = 2 (distance moved by movabletube)Distance moved by movable tube = 0.10 m.

I don't get why they divide the path difference AGAIN by 2.....???
4. Hope these exams are nicer than the specimen papers, haha.
5. Don't understand Q 1.2 on the first paper of the second set of specimen papers... mark scheme says "Total energy = 2keV + 2 × 511 keV = 1024 keV" but I have no idea where this comes from? Think I'm being stupid...

EDIT: Never mind, understand now.
6. Anyone else finding the second set of specimen papers really hard too?
7. I just did the first paper from the second set, I got 34 :,( Am I retarded or is this the case with everyone?

They are quite hard, especially compared to last years. Have you done the 2015 papers, I think they show what you're actually capable of
9. I've done them but I can barely see any similarities

It is stupidly hard... can't even figure out some of the answers from looking at the markscheme. Anyone understand 4.1? Looks like an easy question but I can't get my head around it.
11. Yea, I don't get where any of those numbers are coming from for question 4.1

Where the hell does 245000N come from... don't even understand
13. Exactly!

Resultant force = ma =11000 x 2.9 = 31900N
Resultant force = thrust - air resistance so air resistance = 230000 - 31900
= 198100

Apologies, I forgot to mention that the mark scheme answers for 4.1 and 4.2 are incorrect (which shows how much effort really goes into these specimen papers :/).

This was the mark scheme my college gave us for 4.1 and 4.2

Was it a part of the actual document or separate?
18. These papers are an absolute joke in my opinion. Just did Paper 1 on the second set of specimen papers and was lost throughout... The question about moments was impossible and also the one about working out time taken for p to fall. Just look at the mark scheme for those 2 questions it would be virtually impossible for me to even get a mark on those questions.

Yeah I think they are harder then the first set 😫
20. Oh, thanks
