# A level physics paper 5

#### Samara_100

Hey, can anyone suggest how to write question 1 in paper 5 of physics. The experiment.

#### vedette

is it edexel or cie?

First of all it really depends on what you are asked but it's the same format that's
applied to every question.you need to know what you're trying to plan an experiment for.but these are the basics though:
1.draw your diagram of the set up
2.identify the dependent and independent variable
3.identify the variable that must be controlled or kept constant
4. describe how you would measure the independent variable and how you can carry out the experiment to measure the dependent variable
5.write what you are plotting against what(you must state that a graph should be plotted) i.e the independent against the dependent variable.use the equation to derive this.
6.least i forget make sure you draw a table of values of what should be measured.
7.state how you can determine if there is a relationship between the two variable i.e if the graph is linear graph there is a relationship between the variables. draw how the graph would look like(just a small sketch!)
8.use the equation given to show how you can determine any value that they ask you in the question
9. state the precautions to be taken when carrying out the experiment
NOTE: Avoid command statements e.g Use a ruler to measure the length

Thanks so much, it was helpful, and also I wanted to know how long can we write biology section B answers, I mean will it be one to two page long answers or just point to point short answers.

you are welcome . are you talking about biology paper 5?

well basically write as many points as you can depending on the number of marks.i advise you write more than the required number of marks so if some are wrong the others could be correct.you answer point to point because it's very possible you write something not up to a page and it contains all the needed points and it's also possible you write up to two pages and there are only two points mentioned.The important thing they want to see is the points not the long explanations

Oh ok, thanks, so are u giving A2 exams this October November session, too

#### vedette

yes.i'm writing both my AS and A2

#### vedette

thank you. are you writing yours this oct/nov too

#### Samara_100

thank you. are you writing yours this oct/nov too
Yeah. Do we need to label points on argand diagram, suppose I drew a point A on argand diagram, do I also need to write it's co-ordinates beside it like (1,i) or just drawing the point is enough.

are you talking about ligands?

#### Samara_100

are you talking about ligands?
No, argand diagram in complex number, Math Paper 3

oh sorry. i don't offer Math

yeah
