1. for Q 7 the formula for transformers is;
Vp/Vs = Np/Ns (Vp=voltage of primary, Vs= " of secondary, Np = no. of turns on primary, Ns = " 2ndry)

put in the values you know

250/Vs = 1500/Ns
you're give that for the secondary transformer, current = 10A, and power = 500W
use the formula P = IV, reaarange to V=P/I
find the voltage, put it back in the formula at the start and solve it to find the Ns.

iso got any idea how to solve that box plot one?

i know the 'box' represents 50% of where all the values lie. Therefore, 1/4 of members did between 800-850 steps whilst 3/4 did 850-1100. But what i do from there

Oh my gosh! You are amazing! I never understood anything like that before, but it clicks. I figures out the P=IV bit, but I didn't understand the rest. Thank you sooo much!

NUMBER 19:

Remember, uniform bar, weight acts in centre.

Moments clockwise = moments anticlockwise

(1.5)(1000) = (4.5)(100) + 1.5w

Solve to get 700.
Thank you!

I kept doing: (1.5)(1000) = (4.5)(100) + 4.5w

5. AHHHHH. how do you manage to do bmat in the crazy short times?? its impossible? i mean is it just me being a slow coach or what?

Don't worry. I go over the time too.
Although, the first time I was on msn...
I needed 7 extra minutes on the second one I did on unit two.
What scores are you getting?
I got 4. something on my first go and 6.2 on my second... Getting there. :P:

If we finish unit one or unit three early, will we be able to go back to unit two. Or is that out of the question?

nope. You sit one at a time. 1 hour over...section 1 over, 30 mins over...section 2 over. Not allowed to return to other sections!

i haven't a clue. could someone explain how to do it ?

Darn! It's like a real exam. Thanks for letting me know.

10. I do okay..when i go at my pace. so i dont know whether to go slow and be more sure of getting them right but have to guess lots at the end, or speed up and take less care? sooooo any speeding up tips people? mainly section 2.

I keep trying and failing epicly.

The chance is between the median and upper quartile, so that's a quarter of the 30 people.

I'd have assumed it was:

(7.5/30)*(6.5/29)*(5.5/28)

but that's not the correct answer

why is it 1.5w?
13. (Original post by Aiex)
why is it 1.5w?

Bar is 6m long, weight acts 3m from each end.

Pivot is 1.5m from left end, so weight acts 1.5m from the pivot.
14. (Original post by Aiex)
why is it 1.5w?

The center off mass is the center of the plank i.e 3 meters.

so the force W is 1.5 meters from the pivot.

Moment = force * distance form pivot.

aah i see, thanks DaveJ and Jjkkll
16. box plot question: (1/4)^3=1/64
upper quart minus median is 1/4 of data.you multiply as these 3 people are independent of each other.

upper quart minus median is 1/4 of data.
is that a general rule, or did you have to work that out somehow?
my stats sucks

Hmmm... I thought you would have to find one quarter of 30. Can you explain why you don't have to do that?

Darn! I just worked it out too! :P

General, cos upper quartile is 3/4 of way through data, and median is half way through data. 3/4 minus 1/2 = 1/4
