Unformatted text preview: • Prepare the page with handwritten notes • In the exam: there is no new physics, no new approach to the questions. You just need to use your concepts. And these are: Energy, linear, angular momentum balance, Newtons laws (linear and for rotary motion), and Lorentz transformation. • Stay engaged, don’t give up, if you don’t know the answer continue with a new question/sub question. • Write down your working, use the phrases you have learned. • Some questions are simpler than others, therefore browse through all questions before you start. • Then read the question very carefully .
