I said A, electrolytic reaction because B was worded as "stress corosion cracking" not "stress cracking corrosion"

It wasn't that hard really, lots of gimme questions like about the self lubricating bearings

yeh i picked A as well...but i'm a bit unsure, because cold rolling would create internal stresses...

For the two different types of multiplexing i did: a) Three way phone call
b) Bandwith through multiple computers
and yea... the fuckin pictorial picture ..... took up like the whole page, still pretty confident i got full or close to full marks for it.
I had trouble with the bicycle velocity ratio one though

Gah... I got like 125/150 or something stupid.

Some random answers off the top of my head

For the one with escalator with 115kg on it, answer was 414W I think.
I got 40 something mm for the extension of the cable in the last question.
Question about the current in the circuit with the lightbulb I got 2.5mA.

Any of these answers ring a bell with anyone else?

Yeah they sound like mine lol

if you look up stress corrosion cracking, it pretty much explains that it has to be b, not a, too bad i chose a as well, electrolytic wouldnt work, since thats explained as something to do with an external voltage supply or something like that. 9/10 :(

Yeh most are right, but how did u get 2.5mA, I somehow got 20mA

@ above, I used V=IR and plugged in whatever they told us. Though I may (likely) have used the wrong voltage value.

Only the middle one.
I got like 1008W for the escalator question, clearly fucked that up.
I got ~43mm for the extension
and I got 25mA, not 2.5mA. Maybe I screwed up the decimal. Got 0.025A --> 25mA, right?

Also, wtf. How did everyone find that test easy? That shit was insanely hard. Pretty much like the first Engineering paper I haven't fully completed (missed a few 1-2 markers because I didn't want to waste time).
Method of Sections question was just a no. Didn't even attempt that.
The drawings were absolutely screwed up, especially the bracket. Mine didn't work out properly as 1 side ended up higher than the other. The section was alright, but still didn't fully complete it. Might get like 3/5 for it.
Drawing the MICRO-STRUCTURE OF A LAMINATE?! WTF IS THAT?!
I'm just completely screwed up with this exam. I'll be lucky to get 60%.

i got 1008 W, its sq route of 20squared + 9squared to find displacement, then displacement times force, 1150N then divide by25 seconds to get power, i got 2.5mA and 43.23mm extension, hopefully thats right :S

Do u remember what the values were for the extension question?

Nah man it's just mgh/t as there was no friction

For the escalator, Power = W/t
W= change in PE + KE
So in this case W = PE
Hence Power = mgh/25 (25 seconds was the time.)

Weight was 115, height was 9, use 10 for g.

P = 115x9x10/25
=414

As for the Amps one I'm really not sure...

I think R was 800 ohms, 2 was what I used for V so,
2=Ix800
I = 2/800
=2.5x10-3 or 0.0025
x10-3 is milli, so 2.5mA I think...

damn, 9/10 for me too did anyone get .1388888 for VR of the bike?
No, but I got something close to that for the power loss of the battery or something? Might not been a battery.. i dont remember lol.. power loss of something.... whatever it was used for xD mighta been a bike, don't remember.

8M length... 111 for the modulus ... 0.5mm^2 and 300N I THINK.
