any two from universe expands to a limit/ flat universe (1) but never reaches that limit (1) density of universe = critical density (1) 2 (iii) curve: passes through P (1) curves over and back to time axis (1) 2 (iv) Universe not so old (no ecf from (iii)/ Universe will end in big crunch (no ecf from iii) / universe has finite lifetime (1) 1 [8] 16. (a) uniform intensity detected in all directions/ isotropic 1 (b) Hydrogen and helium in early stars and sun 1 Sun has greater proportion of helium than early stars/ H changed to He by fusion in sun. 1 Virtually no higher elements in first stars/ sun contains traces of higher elements (accept specific examples up to iron) 1 [4] PhysicsAndMathsTutor.com 4

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
