Answer all questions in this section

1. A student carries out an experiment to investigate the relationship between the increase in
temperature, Δθ, of water and the mass, m, of the water. The initial temperature, θO, of the
basin of water was measured with a thermometer as shown in Diagram 1.1.

A mass, m = 0.20 kg of the water taken from the basin was placed in a polystyrene cup and
heated for 1 minute as shown in Diagram 1.2. The final temperature, θ, of the water is read
on the thermometer. Diagram 1.3 shows the meniscus of the mercury column in the
thermometer.
