GCE O Level Oct/Nov 2011 Physics 5058, Chemistry 5072, Combined Science 5116 Written Papers Suggested Answers & Solutions

(9)
Tuition given in the topic of Little Miss Loi the Science Tutor (archived) from the tuition centre desk of Little Miss Loi at 3:43 pm (Singapore time)

Hello everyone and sorry that I haven’t been online for awhile (and that’s a looong while …)

Anyway, my sister told me to use her ‘plane‘ to ‘airdrop’ some Science solutions (another one of her funny ideas again -_-) but someone has apparently took off with it and dropped the following:

Latest version:

  • Physics 5058 1.1: Q2(a): Added “but the total amount remains constant” to the statement for the principle of conservation of energy. Minus 1 mark if that’s left out!
  • Chemistry 5072 1.1: Q2(d): Corrected “… chlorine gas will be produced at the cathode …” to cathode as kindly pointed out by this student. Thanks!
LINKS REMOVED FOR LEGAL REASONS :'(

Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi the Tutor from the tuition centre desk of Miss Loi at 3:43 pm (Singapore time)

The day began with an innocent attempt at a prophetic tweet.

Miss's Loi AMaths Paper 2 tweet

Only for it to be shot down soon after.

And so in a bright sunny binary day of 1/11/11, Captain Loi and her crew of sexy air stewardesses took off from The Temple to fly Jφss Sticks Airways Flight JS296 among the clouds once more – looking down at a million faces that seemed to bask in the (resigned) relief of the afternoon sun …

No More AMaths Tweet

… following which the latch was pulled and the package released …

Latest version:

  • 1.1: Changed all the “Factor Theorem” to “Factor Formula” in Q10 which Miss Loi had written mistakenly in her haste 😛

As usual, please leave a comment should you spot any mistake in the solution.

For those who might be feeling a bit down after this year’s “more-challenging-than-usual” A-Maths papers, be comforted to know that the evil bell curve should be working in your favour (instead of against you) this time.

AMaths Moderation Tweet

Hope you can take heart from the following Singlish-ridden quote which Miss Loi has always said to downcast students in times of need (while patting their backs simultaneously) …

If everyone says difficult and you say die then it’s ok.
But if everyone says easy and you say die then you REALLY DIEEEEEE!

Let the burning of Math books begin! But please don’t accidentally burn your books from other subjects 😛

Good Luck for the Rest of Your Papers!!!

On a dark rainy Halloween afternoon, a black-draped Jφss Sticks Airways Flight JS296 flew amongst the dark rain clouds, her crew stood in a sombre moment’s of silence to reflect on a prophecy that came true (but of course maybe not so true for others …)

Latest version:

  • 1.1: To stem the horde of AMaths students who go “Miss Loi! Your gradient for Q9(d) is waaaaaaaaay off! My dy/dx says 3.2!”, the tangent has been ‘keeeeeewed‘ (bent) to a gradient of 3.2 to prevent any widespread panic. But seriously, read this.
