Unsure about the answer given to g) - I was expecting "the strong nuclear force keeps the protons together in the nucleus" or "the binding energy" or similar, though I may be wrong. Thank you for sharing the resource there is lots of useful material here and I will certainly be making use of it with my Y10.
