About me

Hi!

Who am I? My name is Marcin and I am a Theoretical Physics Graduate from the University of Leeds. I share my energy between two passions which are science and music. Learning about how the physical world works has always intrigued me and I treat my studies of science as a craft that I hope to refine throughout my life and help you along the way!  

My mission is simple: to help you get the most out of your learning! 

Ask me anything! Do not hestitate to get in touch with any question and I am more than happy to chat about any work that you might need help with!

Do not get in touch if what you are looking for is to be spoon fed information without having your interest captured in the subject first!

Questions Marcin has answered

Bob lives 2km away from Alice and the school is 1km away from Bob. Alice sets off to meet Bob at 8am and she meets him at 8:15 and they carry on walking at the same pace. School starts at 8:20. Do they get to school on time? How early/late are they?

Many pupils struggle when maths questions that are given in a very wordy format. I feel these types of questions can be the most useful in testing mathematical concepts that the pupils have picked up in lessons and developing their problem solving skills.

This is a question which has a few ways of giving you the right answer and it requires some thought.

I will illustrate one possible way of answering the question:

- It takes Alice 15 minutes to walk 2km to meet Bob. Using this information and converting the units to seconds and meters, we get that she walks at a pace of 2.2m/s (1dp)

- When she picks up Bob, they both have to walk 1km to get to school. Since we know their walking speed is 2.2m/s we find that it takes 1000/2.2 = 454.5s to get to school.

- Converting 454.5 seconds to minutes gives us 7.6 minutes

- Since they only have 5 minutes to get to School from Bobs house and it takes them 7.6 minutes then they do not get to school on time.

- They are late by 2.6 minutes

What is the difference between a scalar and a vector? Give 3 examples of each.

A scalar is a quantity that has only magnitude (size)

E.G Distance, Speed, Temperature

A vector is a quantity that has magnitude and a direction.

E.G Displacement, Velocity, Change in Temperature.
