Power supply

State the method to control the manipulated variable

(v) The apparatus is set up as shown in the diagram.

The ticker-timer is switched on and a trolley (of 1 kg) is pulled using

a rubber band. The extension of the rubber band is ensured to be of 1
the same length

State the method to measure the responding variable

Acceleration of the trolley is calculated using the ticker-tape.
a = ( v-u ) / t 1

Repeat the experiment at least 4 times with the values

Procedure 2 and Procedure 3 are repeated using 2, 3, 4 and 5 trolleys.

(Note : Based on SPM standard , at least five manipulated values 1

No 4. Making the right inference
The distance between two spherical dippers affects the distance
between two constructive/destructive interference. 1
The distance between two constructive/destructive interferente
decrease when the distance between 2 spherical dippers.
To investigate the relationship between the distance between 2
spherical dippers and the distance beteen 2 constructive
/destructive interference.
ii Mv : The distance between 2 spherical dippers
Rv : the distance between 2 constructive /destructive
Fv: Depth of the water// speed of the motor// the perpendicular
distance between the 2 spherical dippers and the place where
the interference pattern is observed.

State a functional arrangement of apparatus

v State how the MV is controlled

- Two spherical dippers are attached to the water
- The distance between spherical dippers on the screen
are adjusted to a = 5.0cm
State how RV is measured
-The distance between 2 constructive /destructive interference
on the screen , x is measured with the ruler and recorded.

State how repeated the experiment

-Repeat the previous step by increasing the distance between 2
spherical dippers. a =6cm,7cm,8cm and 9cm.
