x is directly proportional to

Show the horizontal line to the y-axis, x = 1.0 m

Show the vertical line to the x-axis, = 1.6 x 10-3 Hz-1

(a)(iii)

- 5 marks
- 4 marks
- 3 marks
- 2 marks
- 1 marks

= 1.6 x 10-3 Hz-1

f = 625 Hz (with correct unit)

Draw a sufficient large triangle (8 cm x 10 cm)

Substitute correctly ( according to the candidates graph)


4.5 0
7.2 103 0

State the correct value of the gradient with unit


m = 625 m Hz (with correct unit)

v =Kfx
= K (gradient)

(iii)

State a suitable inference


The rise in temperature depends on the heat absorbed
State a relevant hypothesis
The higher the heat absorbed, the higher the rise in temperature
State the aim of experiment
To investigate the relationship between the heat absorbed and the rise in
temperature
State the manipulated variable and the responding variable
Manipulated : heat absorbed
Responding : rise in temperature
State ONE variable that kept constant
Volume/density of water/time of heating
Complete list of apparatus and materials
Thermometer, immersion heater,water,powersupply,beaker

Arrangement of apparatus :

Thermometer

(iv)
Water

State the method of controlling the manipulated variable


1. The set-up of the apparatus is as shown in figure above.
2.The immersion heater with power, P of 20 W is used to heat up
the water for 3 minutes.

(v)

(vi)

State the method of measuring the responding variable


3. The temperature, T is measured using thermometer. The rise of
temperature is calculated using formula
= final temperature initial temperature and recorded.

Repeat the experiment at least 4 times


4. The experiment is repeated by using P =40, 60, 800 and 100 W

(a)

State a suitable inference


Current induced/produced depends on the number of turns of coil

(b)

State a relevant hypothesis


The greater the number of turns of coil, the greater the current induced

(c) (i) State the aim of experiment


To investigate the relationship between the number of turns of coil and
current induced

State the manipulated variable and the responding variable


Manipulated variable: the number of turns of coil on solenoid, n
Responding variable :magnitude of current induced, I
