(a) Record in Table 2.1 at time t = 0 s the temperature θ shown in Fig. 2.2.

(b) The students remove the thermometer from the water, starting the stopclock at the same

time. Table 2.1 shows the temperature of the thermometer bulb at 30 s intervals. The

experiment is repeated using thermometer B which has cotton wool wrapped around

the thermometer bulb.

AB is a resistance wire. The students place the sliding contact C on the resistance wire AB

at a distance x = 0.100 m from A. They switch on and measure the p.d. V across the wire

between A and C. They also measure the current I in the wire. The value of I is 0.38 A.

They repeat the procedure several times using different values of x. The readings are shown

in Table 3.1. The current I is 0.38 A for each value of x.

(e) A variable that may be difficult to control in this experiment is the heating effect of the

current, which affects the resistance of the wire. Suggest how you would minimise the

heating effect.

He uses a pivot on a bench as shown in Fig. 5.1. Use

pivot bench

Fig. 5.1

First, the student balances the metre rule, without loads, on the pivot. He finds that it does

not balance at the 50.0 cm mark, as he expects, but it balances at the 49.7 cm mark.

Load Q is a metal cylinder with diameter a little larger than the width of the metre rule, so

that it covers the markings on the rule. Load Q is placed carefully on the balanced metre rule

with its centre at the 84.2 cm mark. The rule does not slip on the pivot.

(a) Draw on Fig. 5.1 the metre rule with load Q on it. [2]

(b) Explain, using a labelled diagram, how the student would ensure that the metre rule

reading at the centre of Q is 84.2 cm.

[2]

(c) Calculate the distance between the pivot and the centre of load Q.
