the greatest

3. When a hydrometer floats in a liquid, the buoyant force is equal to the
weight of the hydrometer
4. Buoyant force = ρ V g / depends on density of liquid.
5. The smaller the density of the liquid, the more liquid it displaces and the
deeper the hydrometer will sink.
(any 4 correct)

Suggestion Rationale
1. Balloon should be large size To create sufficient buoyant force
due to greater weight of
surrounding air displaced.
2. Balloon material is made of light The total weight of the balloon is
weight material like nylon less than the buoyant
force//reduce weight
3. Balloon material should also have a It will not disintegrate when
high melting point. exposed to hot air
4. The part of the balloon (the skirt) So that it doesn’t catch fire easily
near the burner must be fire
resistant /coated with fire resistant
5. The burner burns (liquefied) Warms up the air in the balloon
6. A large fan is needed initially To blow enough air into the

7. The basket must be made off light Prolong the collision time
and flexible/safe material (e.g. between basket and ground//
rattan or cane woven) reduce impulsive force when
basket hits the ground
8. There must be a line or rope from Prevents the balloon from being
the balloon to the ground swept away from the carnival
site. 10
9. Best times to launch the balloon are Cool air is denser, providing
early morning and late afternoon more buoyant force
when the air is cooler

10(a) Electric current is the rate of flow of charge. 1

(b) 1. The voltmeter in Figure 10.1(a) is parallel to the resistor while in Figure
10.2(a) the voltmeter is parallel to the battery.
2. The graph in 10.1(b) shows that potential difference is directly
proportional to current.
3. Obeys Ohm’s law
4. Graph in Figure 10.2(b) shows that the potential difference across the
cell decreases when the current flowing through it increases.// V
decreases linearly with I
5. Voltage drop is due to the internal resistance of the battery
(c) 1. The lighted candle / the heat from the candle causes the air molecules
(surrounding it) to be ionised.
2. The positive charges would be attracted to the negative plate and/or the
negative charges would be attracted to the positive plate
3. The flame of the candle would be dispersed (flattened) into top parts //
suitable diagram
4. More the flame is attracted to the negative plate //diagram
5. Positive charges are heavier than negative charges. 4
( any 4 correct)
1. The main body of the kettle is made up of high specific heat capacity
2. This is to make sure that the outer body does not heat up too fast.
3. The body of the kettle must be made from insulator-like materials
4. that reduces heat loss to the surroundings
5. The material should also have a low density
6. so that it is lighter to carry.
7. The handle must be made of insulators
8. So that it does not get heated. 8

11.(a) Image that cannot be formed on the sreen. 1
1. Concave surface gives inverted image
(a)(ii) 2 & 3. Sketch a ray diagram to show a diminished inverted real image
4. Convex surface give upright image
5 & 6. Sketch a ray diagram to shown diminished upright virtual image.
b) Mirror should be chosen base on:
1. Shape should be convex
2. Gives wider field of view and upright image.
3. Better weather resistance
4. So that mirror will not get blur under heat, light and rain.
5. Hight impact resistance
6. prevent damage due to strong force cause by accident or vandalism.
7. High reflectivity
8. Produce brighter image under dim light.
9. Mirror R is more appropriate,
10.because it is convex. It is made from excellent weather resistant material
and has good impact resistance and high reflectivity. It is more important to
have high [weather resistance than good impact resistance because it is 10
constantly having to resist while rarely experiencing impact.]

12.(a) Elastic potential energy 1

(a)(ii) 1. When the girl jumps on the trampoline bed, the force of the jump stretches
the springs.
2. As the springs are stretched, they store elastic potential energy.
3. At that point, the potential energy in the springs is converted to kinetic
energy, and the springs begin to restore themselves to their initial position.
4. The kinetic energy provided by the springs pushes the girl up into the air and
change to potential energy. 4

(b)(i) 1. High spring constant

2. Stiffer, more potential energy stored and converted to kinetic energy.The
kinetic energy provided pushes the competitors higher up in the air.

3. Steel frame
4. Stronger, can support the competitor

5. More coiled springs


6. Allows for higher bounces and more complicated stunts.

7. Trampoline Q
8. Q is chosen because it has the highest spring constant, it is made of steel 8
and has the most number of coiled spring.

1. Jump harder/ push harder
2. To increase reactive force/ to store more energy 2
