CONCEPTUALISATION

The ability to reason by identifying and analysing common characteristics or variables and synthesis the common characteristic or relation with variables to create a physics concept.

CONCEPTUALISATION
CRITERIA
- list common characteristics

correctly - classify or explain common characteristic or variables correctly - relate characteristic and variables to create concept correctly with identical justification.

Question (Paper 2 Section B


Diagram 1 Diagram 2

Diagram 1 shows : Daniel is drinking with a straw Diagram 2 shows : An empty syringe is dipped in water and the syringe piston is pulled up. From the diagrams state the identical characteristics ,explain the phenomenon and name the science concept involved

Suggested answer

Diagram 2 Diagram 1 water flows/ gets into the straw Diagram 2 water flows into the syringe When air molecule are sucked up, air pressure inside the straw decreases. The external pressure (atmospheric pressure ) which is higher pushes the water into the mouth / the straw. When the piston is pulled up , air pressure inside the straw decreases . External pressure (atmospheric) which is higher pushes the water into the syringe. Physics concept : atmospheric pressure

Diagram 1

Question : Compare the diagrams below and relate the relationship between their focal 5 marks lengths and the curvature of mirrors
Curved mirror J Curved mirror K

Diagram 1.1

Diagram 1.2

SPM 2004

Suggested answer
Mirror K is more curve / K is more concave. Distance of F from P of mirror J is further than mirror K. Reflected rays from both mirrors pass through F, focal point. Incident rays passing through C from both mirrors are reflected along CP, radius of curvature. Curvature increases, focal length decreases.
