Vx = I/nqA
and
Vy = 2[I/nqA] = 2Vx
so doesn't that mean that for every 1 part of Vx we have half a part of Vy? So that 2 parts of Vx gives 1 part of Vy so the ratio is still C, 2:1?? Argh!
I've done this question a few times now and ended up with the same answer, but the question is from an official exam paper in the UK so I don't believe there's been a mistake.
FYI, here's what the mark scheme says:
How can it still be B?
Homework Statement
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
Current is I = nqvA so drift velocity V is: V = I/nqA
Drift velocity for x is: Vx = I/nqA
Drift velocity for y is: Vy = 2I/nqA
So the ratio of Vx : Vy should be 2:1 since Vy is equal to 2 lots of Vx?? (but correct answer is B)

I know I = nqvA
When the pd is applied the surface that is 8cm long, the cross sectional area is 32cm (8x4) but when the pd is applied across the 4cm side, the cross sectional area is now 16cm (4x4) so I has decreased by a...

Slightly confused here.
Since this is a displacement-time graph, is it correct to say that at X, since the displacement is zero that it can't be a point of compression because that would imply the air molecules are...

Since resistance of the NTC falls we can say that the total resistance of the circuit has decreased so there is now more current in the circuit, so it's definitely answer B or D.
And since X's resistance has fallen, PD...

I can see straight away that the waves are 90 degrees out of phase so pie/2.
But how is X ahead of Y? It looks like Y is ahead of X by pie/2.
Here's a diagram I've drawn based on what I've read so far.
So the object is actually at 'object 1' but due to refraction the observer ( and because the brain judges the image location to be where where light rays appear to originate from) deems the object to be at 'object 2'.
Is that correct?

Ah, in that case if X has a stiffer spring, 2K, then its extension (x) will only be half, so we'd have (0.5)(2K)(0.5x) so the energy stored is the same for both??
Homework Statement
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
EPE is (0.5)kx^2
Let Y have spring constant of K then X has spring constant of 2K
So EPE of Y is (0.50kx^2 which is E
So EPE of X must be (0.5)2kx^2 which is kx^2 which is 2E? But correct answer is E/2??
But max vertical displacement occurs when time spent in air is t/2 (compared to horizontal time) and when v=0, if you take a look at this video you can see the guy did the same thing; he's working out vertical displacement using v=0 which is the same as total air time divided by 2?

So (i) was easy enough and I got a time of 0.67 seconds.
For (ii), since the horizontal time is 0.67 seconds this means the TOTAL time spent in air is also 0.67 seconds, so to calculate max height we split this time in half...
