Does anyone have the unofficial mark scheme for the Edexcel AS Maths Statistics and Mechanics Paper 2 22/05/2019?
Thanks

For the Venn Diagrams, I got
X=0
and Y and Z as 0.02 and 0.13 (I forgot which way around, sorry about that )

For distribution I wasn't sure whether to put binomial or uniform.

Stats hypothesis one-tailed test I got X>= 9, and the two mistakes as H1 should be > not >= and that they tried to find P(X=8) not P(X>=8).

Time taken for the pulley I got 1.0 something - possibly 1.02-1.04.

I'm not 100% confident but would like to see what others got!
Cheers

For mechanics question 2, after Q hits the ground what acceleration does P move at?
0
#5
Yes I said the two mistakes were the wrong signs for H1 (should be >).
I also said that she didn't find the critical reigon in order to calculate whether H0 should be discounted.

It doesn't accelerate so you have to work out its final speed after its been accelerated by Q, then use the velocity and remaining distance to calculate that time, adding it to the time whilst its accelerating.

For part two of the pulley question,

The answer was 1.04 seconds , acceleration wasnt constant, so you had to take a=4.2 for only 0.4 m (because the particle that causes the acceleration does it because it pulls particle P downwards for 0.4m where the string is now untaut)

Just to confirm, who else got my value?

Yeah, i got the same. You also had to find the speed of the particle after 0.4m to use that speed as the initial speed for the remaining 1.1

Yhea I like this as well 👌

The one with v=12+4t-t^2 the acceleration was at t=6 and the gradient of the graph is acceleration so differentiate and get - 11 ms^2

I also got -11ms. For the distance S, I integrated the equation for V between limits 3 and 0 and got 45M, what about you?

the question specified first 2 mistakes which implies there were more
i spotted 3, the 2 u said and that fact that they didnt let X be a RANDOM VARIABLE
it has to be one to be able to binomial distribute something
it came before the the P(X=8) mistake

I got -8 ? Coz -2(6)+4 = -8 ? . Is that wrong ?

Yes, -8 is the correct answer

But you had to write the magnitude of it, therefore 8 ms^-2

some kind of stratified sampling

did anything come up on chapter 1 of stats like the census stuff
