    What did you write for the GPS question?

    The GPS question (I think it was Q24, last part) asked for you to predict how the system could be used elsewhere. What did you suggest? I suggested it can be used to monitor bird migration patterns over the world. Hahahaha.

    Please explain the BCS theory.

    BCS Theory basically explains how Cooper pairs form within the lattice structure of a certain material. The first thing you need to know (which a lot of people forget to take into consideration when trying to understand BCS Theory) is that electrons are WAY smaller and lighter than the positive...

    explain ferrous and non ferrous

    Iron tends to rust quicker than other metals so it has a disadvantage there. It can be magnetised so you can use it in electromagnets so there's an advantage. That's the main ones I can think of now. If I find any more I'll post them up...

    good aim to use?

    From "Practical Physics for Senior Students HSC" (© Nelson Australia Pty Ltd.) Purpose: To use analysis of data collected on the period of a simple pendulum of different known lengths to calculate a value for the acceleration due to gravity. Cheers, Shanku

    Hi, Some people say to use 9.8m/s as acceleration due to gravity as it is more accurate while others say to use 10m/s as it is easier to work with. For the HSC, which one should I use? Would I get marks deducted (well technically they don't "deduct" marks... they just don't give you any) if I...

    Is this some kind of scam?

    Oh jeez, just deny the sale and put it back on eBay hoping for a more legit buyer.

    2009ers: Year 12 Jerseys

    Re: Year 12 Jerseys My last name is Roy so I'll probably get "ROYal flush" since I'm a playing card freak. I hope people don't take it as me being a plumber or something. That would be gay. I would have to throw a card at them from 20m away for them to understand that they're wrong. Then I'd...

    Are teachers meant to make MX1 so hard?

    What? Some people in my class get 90+ consistently. The highest I got in MX1 is 80% and the highest I got in 2U is 86%. Yeah, it's friggin' hard but you're meant to be studying for it a few weeks before the test - not the night before.

    Classes and Gender

    I'm not the only guy in the class but I'm the only guy the teachers pick on. A group of people talk, people sleep in class, it's all fine. I say one word... "Shanku! Stop talking!":mad: Where's the justice? There is no justice, I tell ya! None at all! :hammer:

    what does the hsc actually measure.

    I think the HSC measures how well you have grasped concepts rather than procedures. This is especially evident in subjects such as Physics. There's no set procedure you have to follow like "do this for step one, then do this, then this...". You have to decide for yourself where each formula...

    Eng Adv study guides?

    My HSC is going to be next year. They're changing the syllabus? Dang! I can't scab notes off my sister! I hope the textbook writers make a good new one.

    "HSC Revise In A Month"

    What would you do if you won in excess of $10 million?

    First, I would buy a kebab. Then, while consuming the said kebab, I will decide on what to spend the rest of the money on. Perhaps another kebab? Chilli sauce this time.

    Re: Year 12 Jerseys I'll probably get something random like: "My IQ is:" (there will be "09" under it so yeah...) You could also do "Projected UAI:"... same effect... "Kick Me" I wish I could get this smiley on my jersey: :jaw:
