1.

A student knows that some metals are better heat conductors than others.

He investigates rods made of aluminium, brass, copper, iron, lead and zinc.

The diagram shows the equipment which he uses to test three of the rods.

rod

cork

lid

tank

He fits the rods into corks and puts the corks into holes in the lid.

He covers each rod above its cork with wax which is solid at room temperature.

The student pours hot water into the tank and puts the lid on.

After 20 seconds, he measures the length of the melted wax on each rod.

(a) Measure the length of melted wax above the cork in the following diagram.

(ii) The student repeats the investigation for the other three rods.

Give two other features of this second investigation which should be the same as

those in the first to make a fair comparison of all six metals.

Do not list any feature already referred to in (c)(i).

(d) The students friend says that it is more reliable to take several readings rather than

just one.

This is correct because any anomalous (or unexpected) readings are then easier to

identify.

between the normal and the ray in the glass as r.

Use a protractor to measure angle i and angle r to the nearest degree in each

case.

(iii) The student uses his measurements correctly to calculate the refractive index of

the glass. He gives 1.509869215 as his answer.

Refractive index is a ratio and so has no units.

The footprints became fossilised after the dinosaur had walked on mud or wet sand.

(a) Two factors which will affect the depth of the footprints are the weight of the dinosaur

and the area of its feet.

The greater the weight of the dinosaur and the smaller the area of its feet the deeper

the footprints will be.

Suggest another factor and explain how it will affect the depth of the footprints.
