    Hello, I was looking over Higher Physics Revised Higher and Old Higher past papers and seemingly I'm not scoring well in any of them. In multiple choice type of questions, particles & waves and electricity I have a good understanding and seem to score fairly well in them topics/questions.

    However the topic 'Our Dynamic Universe' which is majority of exam- is really tough for me and I clearly don't have a good understanding- I've got the how to pass book but the examples for each question is limited therefore can any of you guys please recommend me a website that gives good information alongside examples for that unit.

    Especially the topic projectiles, knowing what is 'u' and 'v' and 's' and is 'a' positive or negative also the horizontal and vertical split diagram- I'm struggling to understand what is what for both of them.
    Please help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey! For future reference, put your questions about higher physics on the official higher physics forum you will get much responses! I used to make my own one and like not get many responses! 😀

    This website http://smarshallsay.weebly.com/cfe-higher.html is really good as it gives you summary notes for all the units which are, I think, much better than the class notes.

    U is the initial speed
    V is the final speed
    S is the displacement/distance
    a is acceleration and 9.8m/s^2 is negative
