lol, real Physics is really maths. The old HSC Physics course was like 95% calculations.

i like the electron one, the mix of parallel plates with projectile motion, was a good question, made you think

Yeah. If this is an indication for the future, next year's people can expect more calculations. I like it.

Me too, maths calculations is what makes physics sexy.

Knowing how to apply the equations is sexier.

I hated that one! lol. Made it all up, just sticking it into equations. Hopefully I might scrape 1/3 :)

That was the weirdest projectile motion question I've ever seen.

I got an answer though but I'm not sure if I'm right...


I hope I am.

for electron one i used f=qvbsin0. and subed in a value for B. wont get al marks but wil get part marks. didnt even think of doing a projectile equation. edit jus realised i had to find v in the parallel plates. would of had to use projectile equation. fuck

That seems way too long I got something multiplied by 10-8.
Same here. SWEET. I like the high level of maths in the physics. It makes you think and apply different equations.

Yeah that was good, but was a 9.8 or was it the force from the previous question?

I mean was the acceleration in the projectile question 9.8?

That was horrible, so much for only 15% or 25% calculations. Very disappointing.
