Note to Students
This is not an exam. It is a Competition. Some answers you may think you do not know, but they may be worked out by a process of elimination, looking for clues. If you feel it is difficult, it probably is. Top physicsts in the country will take this. Give it a go. It is an opportunity.
The key aim is that you should enjoy taking part and are encouraged to try out questions that make you think.
Calculators may be used. Paper and pencil may be needed to work out some answers.
Other competitions at GCSE, AS and the upper sixth form year are available at www.BPhO.org.uk. Free online resources can be found there.
