I am studying Edexcel M2 by myself and find there is a lack of support material in the form of, for example, the very useful Heinemann Solutionbank DVDs which show the working to the exercises. There is no Solutionbank for this module, but I am usijg the Heinemann books.

Can anywhere tell me where I might find a decent amount of worked examples, espcially for the harder two final chapters on collisions and statics of rigid bodies?

Many thanks.

I found the examples in the textbook to be satisfactory. Are you unable to do the exercises in the chapters, or do you just want more examples?

I can't do some of the tougher exercises. As I can't do them and am working alone, I am a) stuck, and b) can't find out how to do them. I need worked answers.

I have just paid to sign up to TeachNetUK which at a quick glance looks helpful, but any other suggestions would be most welcome.

MEI resources is AMAZING

Not cheap though, unless you can sweet talk your school into getting it.

Thanks Kolya. I HAVE asked on this forum, but got only one reply to one question, and none at all to the other.
If you link to the unanswered questions then I'll have a look tonight for you.

I'm afraid I don't know how to create a link, Kolya, but one question is:

Edexcel M2 Work energy and power question

I'm on the Heinemann book, page 80, Qu 7 (b) How is the answer of 1.5 metres reached, please?

And the other is:

M2 Heinemann Review Ex

Page 85, Qu. 9. How does one show that: 6 tan^2 A - 30 tan A + 5 = 0? Thanks in advance.

Thank you in advance!

I doubt Kolya (or the older members on this board) will have a copy of the M2 book lying around - type out the whole question. Regarding worked examples, you could have a go at a solomon paper and then look at the mark scheme I guess but I think you'd benefit more from leaving papers till nearer the exam (unless if it's in January).

And to create a link; just write the address of the website.

e.g. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=728883 links to this thread.

Thank you Swayum. I'm afraid the Qu I refer to in #12 requires a diagram.
