    For part c I resolved up and down to get 2T + T = W + kW which is T = (W + kW)/3 which obviously meant that the last part came out a bit strange but that equation isn't technically wrong so why is it invalid?

    Attachment 541301541303


    For the last part, I did 3H + H = 4H x 2 = 8H which is 8(u^2/2g) which is 4T^2g 39.2T^2 again I don't see how my method didn't work as the facts are all technically true, no?

    (I understand the mark scheme methods, I just want to understand why mine didn't get me the right answer)

    For part c of the first question. The addition of the weight offsets the tensions so one is no longer twice the tension of the other so the equation is incorrect.

    Ah of course, that makes sense now! Thanks! Do you know why the other one went wrong?

    Also, have you done FP2?

    For the second question the ball starts at height 3H and thus does not travel that distance vertically so that is wrong also. It effectively travels 5H before hitting the ground. H up and 4H down.

    I have not done FP2 but my modules this year are C1,C2,S1,D1,FP1,M1,M2,M3,M4. So I know some FP2.

    For part c on the first question surely just sub in 2cos(pi/10) and show the result is 0.

    For part d on that question you deduce the value of a to be root3 and then sub it in to your area in terms of a that you found in part c.
