    For 6.b) I got 19.2N
    The string's total length is stretched to 1m, so T=(16/0.4)*(1-0.6)=24N. Then sint = 0.8 so F=19.2
    There are two components of T acting on the particle, so it's 2Tsint = F

    I did the same thing with the hemispherical shell. Used 2πa^3/3 for mass. 6 mark question. I think max 3 lost for this. And maybe 1 for the next one.
    If your mass was wrong for the hemi wouldn't you lose a lot more marks I thought? Because I did the same thing and am now kind of panicking as i don't know whether i've done enough to make sure i can get a good mark for this paper...

    I had the correct working out and stuff but wrong values for hemi which lead to the wrong value for x bar and theta. idk how many marks i'd have lost or gained.

    How many marks was Q6 part c?
    6 marks. I forgot to take away the EPE when finding the velocity. How many marks do you think I lost?

    Does anyone know if we get given error carried through marks. I did the correct method for part 7c but my value for w was wrong

    I somehow got l= 1/5 in the second question, have no idea how I did that, and think I used w instead of w squared to find v in the last question. Other than that fairly happy!

    Grade boundaries will be high with this one.

    Just realised that Q4 I forgot the base.....

    I use 11X = 2(4.5a) + 9(2a)(actually have to be 16/9, forgot calculate for the BASE !!)
    X = 27a/11 (actually have to be 25/11

    so my part b) theta = arctan (11/27) = 22.2 deg. (actually have to be 23.7)

    1) How many marks in this question?
    2) How many marks I will lose.. as part b depends on a T_T
    3) What do you guys think about the grade boundary for a*? probably 70/75 ?

    For question 4, the centre of masses one with hollow cylinder and hemisphere etc, if I got part a wrong but did correct working for b will I still lose all 3 marks for b?

    Majority of the time yes, they won't penalise you for the same mistake twice. So you should get marks for the method, but not necessarily the mark for the final answer.

    Did the cylinder not have a base?I'm pretty sure it did.How may marks should I expect to lose for this error?

    It had a base but no top.
