Do you have any revision note containing a list of all the definitions required for unit 2?

Yeah I think its enough. Go to physics maths tutor and they have flashcards for definitions. Most of the definitions are from electricity

How do we find radiation flux? I cannot ffind any formula in my book.....
And what about the 2nd part? We divide 4590J by 110JName:  IMG_20190516_044655-compressed.jpg.jpeg

The first part is easy. You're told to find Radiation Flux (A.K.A Intensity) and Intensity = Power / Area (Check the back of your book if you're using the Miles Hudson one)
Since you're given energy, you can use, Power = Energy / Time and find intensity afterwards (P.S. Time is 1 hours so 602 seconds)

2nd part states that, you need to find the efficiency which is, (Useful Energy Output / Total Energy Input) x 100 ---> Here that'd be, (110 J / 4590 J) * 100 = 2.4%

I've also found these 2 links:

(1) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltage_divider
(2) https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-a...oltage-divider

Let me know where you found the potential divider question so I could see the mark scheme and compare my answers. Cheers!

Thank you soo much for explaining all this cu i was a bit confused in intensity and radiation flux, but they are just the same thing. this past paper is january (IAL) 2017

Yeah i don’t understand the potential divider questions at all. What does a potential divider do? Can someone please explain in short? Or links to any videos?

Same, my concept is that potential divider changes the voltage in circuit like it can control the circuit. Cuz if you change voltage, the current changes so does resistance.

You can reduce the p.d to 0
It does not affect the current

13 c) u use the equation hf=work function +K.E
the mass in KE will be the mass of an electron (found in ur data booklet) andddd thats it?

same here, spent all of yesterday finding anything to explain it but basically it doesnt affect the current
so rheostats (variable resistors) alter the current
Potential dividers alters the voltage
just remember that i guess😂

You gotta use ratios.

R1 / R2 = R3 / R4

120 / 295 = 110 / R4 ----> R4 = 110 / (120/295) ---> R = 270 Ohms
