Diagram 4.1 shows an electromagnetic lifting machine used to lift scrap metal. Diagram 4.

2 shows the observation of the machine when the current flows through the machine is increased.

Base on the information and observation above: (a) State one suitable inference. (b) State one suitable hypothesis. (c) With the use of apparatus such as copper wire, soft-iron core and other apparatus describe an experiment framework to investigate the hypothesis stated in 4(b).

Hypothesis : If the current increases. D. strength of electromagnet will also increase. Responding : Number of pins attracted by the solenoid.C power supply. Aim : To investigate the relationship between the current and the strength of electromagnet. Variables : Manipulated : Current. petri dish. pins. Apparatus and Materials : Soft-iron core.C power supply Switch Ammeter Petri dish .Inference : Strength of magnetic field of an electromagnet is affected by current flow. insulated copper wire. ammeter. rheostat. Constant : number of turns of solenoid. *(retort stand with clamp) Diagram : D. switch and retort stand.
