Questions that I did; 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 & 12(a) & (c)

Physics, physics, physics. Not gonna lie , it had some tricky questions but this is one of those subjects where you just don’t know!

The experiments were grand, I loved the equilibrium question! And after that I needed to do the other 2 but I didn’t like the look of them, so I skipped them and decided I would come back to it.

The short questions were alright too, I always find there’s the odd 1 or 2 that is just sickening. I said I’d chance my arm at the particle physics question, did I get it right ? Probably not. Am I bothered ? Not at all!

I HATE fridges! Well those that don’t have food in them anyway. But when I saw the heat question I said I’d go for it because I don’t mind them really!

Good ol’ Marie made an appearance in question 9 and it’s a good thing she did. I love me some nuclear physics!

I tried the ‘comprehension’ yoke in question 11, but didn’t read it … was I supposed to ?? The questions were grand, ‘Richard of York gave battle in vain”, came in handy, thanks Junior Cert!

And well 12 wasn’t the worst. In saying that I could’ve made a complete mess of it and it could give the SEC a reason to make foundation physics a thing but sure it’s all water under the bridge!!

After all that I finished experiment questions 2 and 3, after a handy rummage through the log tables  to pick out useful formulae.

At least it’s over now , that’s all I’ll say. Chemistry, have a heart!!
