    Differentiation Question Help

    The only way I can see how to do it without integration is taking the average velocity and then multiplying by the time. But this would only give you an approximation.

    Differentiation Question Help

    I think they want you to use integration hence they have specified an initial condition for the body's displacement- indicating that the constant is zero. Also note that the acceleration is not uniform as the velocity function forms a parabola- so we can't use shape formulas like area of a...

    Ranks - Thoughts?

    I'd just rest up and psychologically prepare yourself for the rest of the year. In my opinion having a good mindset will help you achieve a much better result than hours and hours of studying. In the summer holidays I did some light study for both 3U and 2U but really focused on other aspects...

    branches of engineering - which to choose?!

    Thanks very much for the detailed response- I’m still very keen to follow aerospace as a career path but will keep in mind that like most things in life, it is very much crystallised. I will just see where it takes me and be prepared for anything. Final question- would you still follow the same...

    branches of engineering - which to choose?!

    In an ideal world I would love to work to Boeing or NASA- but I would just be happy working anywhere in the industry. I’m thinking the creation of the Australian Space Agency will boost domestic employment levels in the near future as well

    Study and Time Management

    I completely agree with this. I approached it the other way- although my degree requires only 95 I put my heart and soul into the HSC. And although I’m expecting 99.5+ it really isn’t worth it...
