Oh yes my apologies! new screenshot attached. However I've gone and already worked it out, reasoning why I was struggling with this was because I forgot it was a continue on from the previous question!! Friction should be 350N IIRC? (F = ma = 290*5 = 1450N UNBALANCED FORCE, 1800-1450 = 350N)

Which paper is that? You need more information to solve that (either the unbalanced force or a way of finding the unbalanced force), can you send the rest of the question please?

Ah perfect. Yep, I got 350N too

When drawing a graph, and it's a curve of best fit - should you draw a line back to the origin or just leave the curve as it is? (Specimen Q16b)

The m'th order is used in the formula ,
m=0 gives principle axis, m=1 (or m= -1) gives first bright line on screen etc,

for destructive interference

m=0 gives first angle etc...

remember is a function of !

thank you! I did past papers over the past week and went over theory quite well. Let's just hope the paper tomorrow isn't too bad. Good luck everyone!

I'm a 2-year resit, from Nat 5, so I can't give you crash higher advice although considering I got 28% in the exam last year, I might be able to help.

Do past papers, if you can't do a question read how to do it, make notes on types you can't do. Go over main points, that they may ask in form of a long answer knowledge question. Understand it.

If you don't have the time over the next week just keep doing past papers.

This website provides (http://mrmackenzie.co.uk/higher-revision/), past papers back to 1994. Fun fact, SQA love to reuse multiple choice questions, if you try the majority of those multiple choice questions and memorise the answers/what to do, I can assure you you will bank 15/25 at least in the Multiple Choice, from either knowing how to do the questions or the exact same ones coming up. This means you go into Paper 2 with 20% odd of your marks already in the bag, plus the assignment.

Hi what do magnetic and electric fields do to particles in particle accelerators? Which one deflects a particle and what happens to the other one

A moving charge produces a magnetic fields and magnetic fields deflect particles - in particle accelerators, like the synchrotron, they use electromagnets to keep the particle in a circular path, and in the cyclotron, they use magnets as well to keep them going in a circle after they've been accelerated across the "dee". Electric fields exist around any charged object, so a charged particle in an electric field would experience a force and this force could make the particle accelerate. That's all I think we need to know, it's just stuff I learnt from my How to Pass book, hope it helps

Some relationships:
for energy of charged particle accelerated in an Electric Field (potential difference is .) Final velocity will be

A magnetic Field cause charged particle to deflect (actually into a circular path ) where direction is given by Right-Hand-Rule:

Particle accelerators are Linear (like FERMIlab), cyclotron (aka bevatron) and synchrotron (like CERN)

Neutrons are unaffected by Electric or Magnetic fields- difficult to study.

Exam went really well! Fair MC paper and excellent paper 2. I'll try and upload MC if I can

Here's the MC paper with my answers and working. No guarantee that the answers are right although I did feel pretty confident about them. Interested to see if others got similar answers

I think 4 should be A and 10 should be E

Quite possibly. They were two I was unsure about

Other than that we got the same answers )
