    got given the textbook today and did some chapter 1 stuff - tbh it is basically m2 but with core 4 integration but I like how mechanics always
    builds upon previous knowledge from the other modules. Always hear mixed opinions on M3, so bit anxious to see how the rest of the module is!

    Chapter 1 is a nice and easy intro to M3
    Having finished the module last week I think the trickiest questions are those about SHM involving springs and strings, however none of the chapters are extremely difficult.
    That being said, I would say that M3 is a fair jump up from M2 but it's a lot more interesting IMO.

    I think there are also some quite difficult ones in there on circular motion (particularly the projectile-type ones) and toppling/tilting/equilibrium problems in the centre of mass chapter

    True, the projectile ones can be a little tricky actually

    Ah no worries. I don't think there are worked solutions anywhere for it unfortunately.
    Are you stuck on a particular question or do you just want solutions for all of them?
