Thanks for watching! Part 1 on the Nuclear Atom is here: https://youtu.be/8dfBUxRzWxU and a playlist of all of my revision videos is here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSygKZqfTjPC3hJ7nRSnnXTw3tI_o67dR Good luck in revision! : )

Would i subtract the mass after fusion/fission away from the mass before? or vise versa?

at 11:39 is the binding energy equal to the change in energy?

Practice Questions here: https://youtu.be/EqmNIsflGTY

Errr. What 20:11 , you haven’t actually answered the question. It states ‘suggest why…. for deuterium and helium’. You have compared the both. The question on asks for why the probability is less for both. Not to suggest why it is less for the other.

can you make video on Advanced Informatino for 2022 OCR A exams like predicted questinos

can you do practice questions for this topic?

i watched this video IN VR

My textbook says the formula for gravitational field strength is = Gm/r2

in ur rev video u mentioned it was minus Gm/r2

can u explain the minuses

Thank you for your amazing video! I got a small question would like to ask, why the greater electrostatic repulsive force means higher reaction probability? Thank you !

great video, for binding energy calculations in aqa they give u masses in terms of u and then u can just multiply by 931.5 to get the mass defect straight into energy in MeV which i find is much quicker for any aqa people out there! (all on data sheet)

Can the fast moving neutrons be used in nuclear fission . If not then why ?

This is a great video

Thanks, Can you do one for thermal physics please?

Atomic physics please

Thank you for this, is there a possibility you can do magnetic fields?

excited to use these videos at A-level 🙂

top notch stuff

Wow exactly what I needed after finishing nuclear physics in lesson thank you for your helpful lessons!
