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

1. (Original post by 5soslovatoswift)
ahhhhh I see- I put D first too but crossed it out as I thought there would be a really large permanent extension? still have no clue though tbh
It was quite confusing. I changed my answer twice. But if you think about it the graph for D was one for a polymeric material, things like rubber, which are used for bungee cords.

oh yeah that's a point
3. What did you do for the resistance 3 marker?

whats the overall consensus of the paper? also, i see so many people get 2.3V across the R3 or whatever. I got that at first, then changed it because the current splits when resistors are in parrallel. So i divided by 0.33A instead to get around 4.6V.
. I did the same im sure its right because current is equal in series but not in parrallel.
5. Anyone got an unofficial mark scheme yet?
6. Did anyone put C and B?

hey, what did you get for the one marker when it asked what the current was in one of the branches at that junction?

I put A and D, as an elevator wire cannot stretch. And D because a bungee wire cannot plastically deform, and must stretch easily
9. What are the hardest questions we can get asked in AQA P1 tomorrow?

Wrong thread, this is AS physics.

Oh **** sorry
12. Is anyone making a markscheme?
13. Anyone know when we might get an unofficial markscheme?
14. for that one marker with the junction in the circuit , shouldnt the current have been 0.33 through the resistor in that branch cos 0.66 divided by two is 0.33

any guess for the mark range of 100ums？

I'm afraid there's no such thing as UMS with new spec A levels - there would be no point, if everyone sits the linear exams then the examiners can just set the grade boundaries for that year. The new target will then be 100% raw marks - which I doubt many people (if any) could achieve.

I've been editing the original one, here's what I have so far.
18. D doesnt stretch easy, it has a steep gradient at first meaning u will never stretch it, also it never returns to its original length..... Meaning it would be an awful rope of bungee jumping. A snaps way to quick and cannot support the greatest stress, B supported the greatest stress ( Force/Area) Even excluding where it goes past its elastic limit, A would just break instantly if it got to 3/4 of the stress B did. Therefore B for elevator and C for bungee.

i can't remember that one what did you get for the resistance of the WP. wire? I thought that was really tough, never been asked anything like that before

Just in case some of you dont know, here s the link ppl were suggesting markscheme, but it is now a mess
