    I didn't see a thread made for the exam tomorrow, so I thought I'd make one.

    The experiment to find acceleration due to gravity could come. Also force/extension, stress/strain graphs. May to find energy changes in a pendulum also.

    Paper was not bad. Missed 2 parts in the young modulus question.

    I don't think we should discuss the exam until like 6 hours later or something.

    Was the points 90.06?
    Was the angle of arrival of the skier 54?
    What was the Youngs Modulus of the wire?
    What was the mass of air in the first question?

    I don't think that discussing the exam paper rn would be better. Some people in other countries wouldn't have started their exams. You can discuss it after a maximum period of 6 hours, just like the OP said.

    Different time zones have different papers. So it's really not a problem.

    Also are any of you doing unit 2?

    I'm doing unit 1, 2, & 3 in May. No they don't. The same paper is offered in all time zones. IAL and AL may differ of course. But the IAL paper provided is the same world-wide. That's how you decide the world-prize winner and the rank of the country for a particular subject.

    Alright I think we're good to discuss the paper. I got the points as 90.6 so I rounded it to 91. The distance I got was around 137 metres

    The young modulas experiment was a little tricky to understand but I did manage to solve everything, whether it was right or not, I am not sure.

    I don't remember the exact value but I believe it was in the powers of 11. So (Value) x10^11
    What was your value?

    I actually skipped the question about the angle of the skier because I didn't understand it that well at first and I had other stuff to solve so instead I solved everything else and the time eventually ran out then, but it's fine, it was only 4 marks and I think I generally solved the entire paper really well. I might even get the full UMS hopefully
