15.0 cm, 20 cm , 25 cm , 30 cm and 35.0 cm.
(vi) Tabulate the data

## (vii) Plot the graph R against l

Questions No. 21
(a) The heating effect of a conductor is affected by magnitude of
the current.
(b) The larger the current, the higher the temperature of the water
which is being heated
(c) (i)
To investigate the effect of current on heating
(ii) MV : current ,I
RV : temperature ,
CV : volume of water
(iii) Beaker, ammeter, immersion heater, thermometer,
connecting wire, rheostat and stop watch
(iv) Draws a labeled and functional diagram of the set up of
the apparatus.
3
(v) Pour 200cm of water into the beaker and measure its
temperature.
Switch on the circuit and adjust the rheostat until the
reading of ammeter is 1.0 A.
The stop watch is started.
The final temperature is recorded after 2 minutes.
Step repeated by adjusting the rheostat so that the
ammeter readings are 2.0 A, 3.0 A, 4.0 A and 5.0 A.
