at 6:41 of the video, am I being dumb or is the guy making a mistake?
(on the right-hand side you can see his working) if he's squaring the entire thing, shouldn't the 2 also be squared? : though the method seems wrong to me, it gives the correct answer..

Thank you sm in advance <3

I watched it as well and I don’t know if I’m being thick or if he did do it wrong? I don’t see why it wouldn’t be squared as well but maybe there’s something I’m forgetting? If the answer is right then I’d assume that it is the correct method and maybe just ask your teacher to explain?

Not gone through it carefully but he mentions a sqrt(2) multiplying d, squaring that would cancel one of the 2s on the denominator, leaving what he has as ok (9*2 rather than 9*4).

But not gone through carefully.

Good luck with the physics olympiad.
