i found it 50/50 like i struggled with the surfs question haha but got the mechanics stuff.
never even thought about practicing first principle so i just answered that with the differential
what did people get for the question if the particle was ever stationary i got no

i think i got no too if i remember correctly cos the discriminant was less than 0.

Yeah that was a really weird question, I got something like 4.3, their lower bound was 3 something so I assume upper bound would be higher? I really didn’t like that question

Did anyone get that the projectile doesn’t hit the wall? I got that it reaches a height of 6 something which is > 5m so it passes over...

I pretty sure the lower bound was like 0.3-ish so you probably got 0.43

I found the stationary points (square root +- 1/3) but couldn’t find the point of inflection, is that when the second derivative = 0?

Yh i did the same and said point of inflection is where second derivative gradient =0 which wasn't on the stationary points

I think I just used the highest point for the first rectangle and then kept going down, wbu?

Yeah I used the trapezium rule and ignored the first y value (so yeah I worked down).

I thought it asked to show that the acceleration was like 0.35 or something?
