The type of core should be laminated Soft iron is used because it is easily magnetized and
soft iron. increasing the magnetic field in the coil
Increasing of the thickness of the wire. The greater the thickness of the wire, the greater the
strength of the magnetic field of the electromagnet.

5. (a) (i) – During hot weather, resistance at termistor decrease ,potential difference across
- Potential difference across R will increase
- This will produce bigger base –current , and will increase the collector current
- Finally, electric relay will switch on the air conditioner.

4 marks
(ii) - During cold weather , resistance at termistor increase.
- Potential difference across thermistor will increase.
- Potential difference across R will decrease.
- This will produce smaller base-current and no current flow in collector circuit. Finally, electric
relay will swith off the air conditioner.

Safety valve needed To release extra steam so that the pressure

in the cooker does not reach a dangerous
stage
Thickness of the pot High To withstand high pressure
Specific heat capacity of Low Heats up quickly and food will be cooked
the pot faster
Specific heat capacity of High Heats up slowly and can be held with bare

12
the handle hands
S is chosen Reasons: It has safety valve, high thickness, low specific heat
capacity of the pot, high specific heat capacity of the handle.

7.
Characteristics Explanation Reason

Rate of vaporation Low Liquid volume will be decrease faster if rate

of vaporation high
Liquid B is chosen Reasons: Boiling point high, specific heat capacity average, rate of
vaporation low

8.
Characteristics Explanation Reason

Size and height Stem thin and long To increase accuracy

hydrometer stem
Bulb diameter Big Bouyant force high// Displace more liquid

Bulb A Bulb contains lead Hydrometer upright/ lowing gravity centre/

shot more stable
Hydrometer wall Glass wall No erode by acid

Hydrometer K is chosen Reasons: stem thin and long, diameter air bulb big, bulb contained
lead shot and stem glass walled

9.
Characteristic Suitable property Reason

String material Steel Lasting and does not break easily

Q is chosen Reason: Small diameter, high tension, high strength and its made of
steel.

10.

13
Characteristics Explanation Reason

Resitivity Low So that the current high// high heat energy

produced
Rate of corrosion Low Can’t easily rust

Substance R is chosen Reason: Low density, Freezing point average, resistivity low and
rate of corrosion low
