Write your answers in the answer book provided. For Section A, there is no need to start each question on a fresh page. Some questions contain parts marked with an asterisk (*). In answering these parts, candidates are required to give paragraph-length answers. In cach of these parts, one mark is allocated to assess candidates’ ability in effective communication Take g = 10ms* Unleds otherwise specified, numerical answers should be either exact or correct to three significant figures. Unless otherwise specified, all the cells are assumed to have negligible internal resistance. ‘The last page of this question paper contains a list of physics formulae which you may find useful.
