Is anyone finding that the answers for paper 2 are wrong? I don't know if i'm being stupid but I cannot get the answers for question 2 or question 4. If you have managed to get the right answer could you please share the solution

Physics A? Are they multiple choice questions? Make it clearer or post a pic of the questions !

What question don't you get? 1.2? Any particular one in 2 or 4????

and essentially 2.2 and 2.3 and the whole of 4 because the first answer is used in the other questions.

For 2.2, make use of the capacitance formula that depends on the geometry of the setup to compute the capacitance when the insulator is pulled out:

Then use the definition of capacitance to compute the p.d:

For 2.3, the energy stored by the capacitor is “defined” by the following formula:

....the whole of 4 ....

**tasha1898**)....the whole of 4 ....

For 4.1:

Compute the number of moles of sodium-24 using

Then use Avogadro constant to find the number of atoms in 15 cm

^{3}:

For 4.2, you need to find the decay constant first but note that you need to convert the half-life in hours to seconds:

Then use the number in 4.1 in the formula:

*A = λ N*

For 4.3, compute the total activity in the flask say

*A*

_{T}after 3.5 h.

is from 4.2

Then use the following ratio:

For 15 cm

^{3}, the activity is 3600 Bq. If the activity is

*A*

_{T}, then what is the volume?

For 4.4, the estimated mass of the liquid = 5.2 – 1.5 = 3.7 kg.

If the liquid is water, the density of water is 1 g/cm

^{3}, so the volume of the liquid is 3700 cm

^{3}.

See the MS for the deduction. They should make senses. If they don’t make sense, you can always post your query.

thanks! i used those and i was still getting it wrong but it was just a number error. question 4 is wrong though according to my teacher so no worries i guess

Could you explain why question 4 is incorrect? Thanks.

the calculation they give on the mark scheme actually comes out as 7.5*10^12 not 10^10 so they have made a mistake i think, the numbers are right it's just the order of magnitude

I think that the answer is correct. The method suggested by the MS indeed gives 7.5E12 because it lacks the terms 15/1500, not that the question is wrong.
