Yeah i thought it was pretty easy, no overly complicated questions. Was a bit dissapointed that there were'nt any E = MC^2 questions =/

It was ok. The early question asking something like what force is exerted in paralell to the 240N force shown utterly confused me and put me in a foul mood for a few more questions - but for the most part the questions were fairly simple and easy. Felt like there were a lot of three markers which were just given to you, so long as you knew how to work the formulae.

Here's hoping for an A.

Good paper strange there was no projectiles or momentum questions in the second half. Guess we can say what will defo be in next years paper now lol.

I'm praying for my B I think I did it, and I was just so happy there were alot of theory questions in it.

Most of the stuff I thought that was going to come up didn't but what the hell was that op amp questions about!

I thought it was a fair paper - mostly quite simple which was pleasant! So hopefully I will get the A I want.
What was the op amp question again?

The one with the two voltage dividers as inputs in to the differental op amp with the yellow and blue diodes attached to the output.

thought it went ok apparently got 19/20 for multiple choice but got confused by the irradiance question - never touched anything on i=p/a over the year and it wasnt in the formula sheet we had. took a guess as i = watts/metres squared so probably got wrong physics for that and got the differential op amp as being 2.1v and the diode is being blue so got that wrong

I got it wrong as well, I took a guess with the diode one, it was a fifty fifty chance.

I also did the same thing for the irradiance Q got half way though the paper, looked at the irradience Q later on and it had the unit down as Wm^-3 went "OMG THATS THE ANSWER!" went back and changed the multiple choice answer. Haha. I love when that happens.
