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.

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!

### #101054 pastpaper 2005 non calc 10b

Posted by Sammie on 03 May 2008 - 02:06 PM in Problem Questions

10a) express sin x = - root3 cosx in the form ksin(x-a) where k>0 and 0<=a>=2pie

I got::

sinx - root3 cosx = ksin(x-a)

hence

ksin(x-a) = k (sinxcosa - cosxsina) = ksinxcosa - kcosxsina = kcosasinx - ksinacosx

kcosa = 1 and ksina = root3

so

k = root (3 +1)

k = root 4

k = 2

tana = ksina/kcosa = root3/1 = root3

a = tan-1 (root3) = pie/3

since k = 2 and a = pie/3

sinx - root3cosx = 2sin(x-pie/3)

==> I'm pretty much 100% sure this part is right...

b) sketch y = 3+sinx - root3cosx

from part a

y = 3 + 2sin(x-pie/3)

and it all went sunnyside down from there...I'm pretty much hitting a brick wall with this thing I've had a look at the SQA answers but I have no idea where there getting the numbers from etc

thanks peepsies xo

### #101051 Past paper 2005 noncalc Q9

Posted by Sammie on 03 May 2008 - 01:03 PM in Problem Questions

"if cos 2x = 7/25 and 0<x<2pie find exact values of cosx and sinx"

I have this so far.

cos 2x= 7/25

since cos2x = 2cos^2x-1 then

2cos^2 x-1 = 7/25

2cos^2 x = 7/25 + 1 = 32/25

cos^2 x = 32/50

its going from there to the last step,how do I get rid of the square on the left hand side the SQa marking says cos x = 4/5 and sin x = 3/5 but I can't get it to come out right

thanks peepsies <3

I was meant to be going to see the Dykeenies at the end of the month, but their PR messed up with review tickets and she has none left now. Sob!

They weren't that good opening for McFly (I was at the Glasgow gig) but I saw them openiong for Fall Out Boy in August and in King Tuts and they were so much better with a small crowd.
