    Hello guys,

    how was the exam? Hard..? Easy...? Do you have any answers?

    Thanks

    PS: Are we allowed to talk about the exam now? If not then which time are we allowed to talk about it?

    For AQA I believe we are allowed to talk about the exam as soon as it is over.
    I thought it was alright - nothing outrageously difficult or trick questions (that I noticed anyway). I'm bound to have made some silly mistakes but I'm quite happy with how it went.

    c)angle=53.5
    Q5)c) radius=0.32m
    Q6)a)500V
    b)2156 m not sure about this

    I got for the first 3 Questions:

    1) r = t^4 + 4cos2t +4

    2)

    a) KE = 432 J
    b) i) Proved that KE = 667 J
    b) ii) 14.9 ms-1
    b) iii) The stone is a particle and no air resistance.

    3)

    a) v = (e^1/2t -8) i + (2t -6) j
    b) i) speed = (e^3/2 -8) i = -3.52 ms-1
    b) ii) Direction of travel = in i-drection, West.
    c) a = (1/2e^3/2) i = 2.24 ms-2 (Just realised that wrong -.-)
    d) 15.7 N (So thats as well wrong :/)

    These are my first 3 answers did you get same? any different?

    Yeah I got 11cm for the centre of mass. I'm recognising a lot of these numbers but can't properly remember what I got for each question without seeing the question itself.

    The one about the train took me a while for some reason, even though it was actually quite a standard question in the end. Perhaps I just didn't like all those big numbers!

    11cm for the centre of mass, 5.3m for the very last question, not sure I can remember much else! Overall I thought it was a pretty good exam, really, although long.
