    What did you guys get for all of question 4,5,7,8,5,2 and 3. Basically all lol

    hey! i think for the first question there was like a describe changes in blood flow or something?? it was a 2 mark and i remember mentioning 18 dm3 and some other stuff as u had to use figures from the graph

    I presume the question where you stated 18 dm3 was the question where they asked 'how do you know lactic acid was produced'. They gave two bar graphs, one showing glucose concentration one showing lactic acid concentration, if that question was 2 marks then yes you should use figures- I'm not sure i did though , i just stated that lactic acid was produced/ had increased at the end of the run.
