## SECTION C(Answer any one question)

(11)
(a) Specific latent heat of vapourisation : Amount of heat energy needed
when 1 kg substance of liquid state changes to gaseous state at
constant temperature. (1)

## • Under rotating fan, rate of evaporation increases. (1)

• Evaporation is endothermic process where heat energy is absorbed(1)
• Therefore, body’s temperature drops and fell cool (2)

OR
• Water molecules on the surfae layer evaporate(1)
• Specific latent heat of vapourasation is absorbed, heat loss (1)
• Average kinetic energy of the water’s molecules decreases (1)
• Temperature of an object depends on average kinetic energy (1)
• Therefore, temperature drops and feel cool (1)

Q = Pt =ml

## l = Pt/m = (100x2.6x60)/0.05 (1)

(ii) Use formula, Q = mcΔθ
Q = Pt

c = Pt/mΔθ

c = (100x1.2x60)/(0.05x140) (1)
= 1028.6 Jkg-1OC-1 (with correct unit) (1)

(d)
• Number of fin blade : Must have enough number of fin blade, increases
the rate of heat dissipation (1/1)
• Size of fan : Big size fan, produces stronger wind, increases rate of heat
dissipation (1/1)
• Boiling point : cooling liquid has high boiling point, it will not become hot
quickly (1/1)

• Sepcific heat capacity : Cooling liquid has smaller value of specific heat
capacity, conduct heat faster (1/1)
• Most suitable car radiator is R (1) because it has enough number of fin
blade, big size fan, high boiling point and moderate value of specific heat
capacity. (1)

to the current flowing in it (1)

## Resistance is defined ratio between potential difference and electric

current (1)

(b)
Material T is suitable to be used as heating element because
• Small diameter (2)
• High melting point, it is not molten easily (2)
• High resistance (2)

(c)
• Cross-sectional diameter of the wire : Diameter increases,
resistance decreases (2)
• Length of the wire : length increases, resistance increases (2)
• Type of material used to make the wire : different materials,
different resistance (2)
• Temperature : normally, when temperature increases, resistance
increases (2)
