Paper 3Section A ( 28 Marks)Answer all questions in this section1. A student sets up an experiment as shown in the diagram below to find out therelationship between the extension, x of a spring and the mass, m of the load.At the beginning of the experiment, no load is used. The length of the spring is l Theexperiment is repeated with different masses such as 0.2 kg, 0.4 kg, 0.6 kg, 0.8 kg and 1.0kg. The actual lengths of the spring are shown in the diagrams (I) to (VI).(a) Based on the procedure of the experiment, state the(1)manipulated variable[1M]………………………………………………………………………………………………(ii)responding variable[1M]………………………………………………………………………………………………(iii)fixed variable[1M]
