    Why are different frequencies used for Sector (3.5MHz) and B (20MHz) scans?

    Also, the polarity of P and Q? I got P as positive and Q as negative? Correct or nah?

    I put that too but P is negative turns out since it said "circuit" hence positive charges come out of the positive terminal. If it was just a wire it'd be P but nah

    I don't completely remember what P and Q were, but the current travels in a clockwise direction.

    Yeah I thought it was a normal wire so positive charges build up at P but guess it's a circuit so positive charges go to negative (P).

    3.5 is used cause it has less interaction with bodily tissue so is used as sector scans imaging e.g. Babies in a mothers womb. Lower energy sound waves interact less with tissue so can "reach" further into the body, but as a result has lower resolution.

    20 is used in situations where less penetration is required eg eye scans or other small areas of the body. The higher energy sound waves interact more and thus give a higher resolution image. B (brightness) indicates the size/thickness of a particular layer.

    Re: Physics Exam Thoughts

    What did people say for 5, the MCQ about undoped silicon? Pretty sure the answer must have been D, the one that says equal numbers of positive holes and electrons move in opposite directions, but I said A, that more electrons move than positive holes, because there are both free electrons and valence electrons moving in undoped silicon

    That question confused me a bit. I went with D... but I don't think there should even be any holes (or at least not too many) in undoped silicon? Since it isn't doped with Boron for example to create a p-type semiconductor?

    There will still be holes in undoped semiconductors as long as an electron jumps from the valence to conduction band. The absence of that electron always leaves a hole behind in the valence band. I think once it's been doped, for example with a group 3 element then the majority of charge carriers will be holes over electrons.

    It should be D because electrons and holes exist in pairs, so there are equal amounts of electrons and holes.

    Oh, true. Thanks.

    Yeah, I agree with this.

    Say 2 electrons get excited from VB —> CB, so you have 2 free electrons in CB, 2 holes in VB, but only way those holes will move is if an electron moves into it, so you would have 2 electrons moving in VB also :/

    For it only being Q5 tho, I think they would want D, I don’t know how I feel about that.

    Free electrons and positive holes exist in pairs. But holes can only move by the movement of valence electrons, not free electrons

    Yeah that means both free electrons and valence electrons exist so there is more

    Re: Physics Exam Thoughts

    paper is out now. Think I'm looking at anything between 80-85 raw depending on how its marked. Is that enough to get a B6? For the proj motion question (29b) I did it all right but I thought that the 10ms-1 was horizontal (idk how I misread it that bad) so my answer was off but my process was right, will I lose 1 or 2 marks?

    Probably lost 1 mark out of 3 I guess since the rest was okay. Also 80-85 would be enough for a b6 I'm just guessing b6 cutoff might be 78-80.

    I guarantee you, as long as you put in e=mc2 somewhere in the exam, yous will have nothing to worry about.
