    This seems like the best answer I have seen so far for warranting the full 5 marks. I dont even remember seeing that is was in for one minute. Therefore I got your answer before you multiplied by 60.

    (Also I used 0.118m)
    If you use c=f*wavelength you already get frequency as in waves per second so I'm not sure you have to?

    I know, Christ its like you actually had to use your brain for an exam. At least you might get a grade in your media studies exam.
    What are you talking about. Can you not throw your toys out of your pram and not target someone for stating their opinion? Smh people these days.

    Would you still get the mark if you said beta plus instead of e+?
    Think so at least I hope so because I put that as well.

    I still dunno if its nodes or antinodes and why.
    Basically the points where the chocolate was melted occured at anti-nodes I believe. So you know anti-nodes occur at maxima and minima. Hence the distance between the two melted points on the sides (not the centre) gave one wavelength?

    This distance was 12 cm (hence 0.12 m) since it was a 'life-sized' chocolate bar and you work your way from there to get frequency.
    I still don't see how that is 5 marks.

    I agree with this!

    I forgot this bit so probably lost 2. Looks fine.
    Champ, does the quote above make sense to you? It might mean you don't have to multiply by 60?

    For the chocolate the in the microwave,
    The calculation of the frequency is using
    F=speed of light/wavelength
    I put nodes for the three dots of MELTED chocolate which is wrong it is ANTINODES.

    But even if you got that wrong the wavelength needed to calculate the frequency will still be the same.
    Distance between a node and a node is 6cm
    Distance between an antinode and antinode is 6cm. They are both half a wavelength anyway??
    So 0.12m is the wavelength.
    Gets you 2.5x10^9 Hz.

    Hmm? I thought antinodes were always maxima.

    Antinodes are points which vary between the maximum and minimum displacement of a stationary wave

    Look at a sine graph. measure from first to last for 1 full wavelength, as first to second is only a half.

    If you are not already aware, the markscheme is currently being edited here:

    Anyone can leave suggestions, so feel free to leave them. Thanks. Please don't post anything stupid or unnecessary.

    Oh right. I understand. I put antinodes but after the exam I was then convinced it was nodes.

    Cheers.

    for one of the last questions if you put beta instead of a positron would you get the mark

    I wish
    It's based on what percentage of people they want to get an A so they put the grade boundaries so like 15% of the people that sat it get As
