1. Could anyone please explain question 6c on the June 2011 paper? I'm confused as to why the mark schemes putting the lines where it is

Posted from TSR Mobile
2. For filament bulbs, if the pd is decreased, does the resistance decrease and the power increase? Also what happens to the current in this case and the temperature?
3. What will we be asked about oscilloscopes?

6. c i). It had double the internal resistance so the gradient will be doubled (and pass through the same y-intercept as the EMF is unchanged).

6. c ii). It has no internal resistance so the gradient is 0. Hence, it's just a horizontal line.

Think about it. V=IR. what happens to r when you decrease pd? P=V^2/R, what happens to power r is decreased?

I just feel like its gonna be another one on circuits, something on a filament lamp hasn't come up before
could do although I'm thinking they will do something different they have used almost all the components

I can't really think about anything other than last years..

I think that resistance does decreases as pd decreases, but not sure what happens to current, does that also decrease? and if so does temperature decrease?
9. Does any one have any idea what the 6/8 marker question will be on? I always lose my marks there

Thanks so much! I'm just finding annoying little questions which I should know the answer to and just don't! It's really frustrating! On the same paper, how would you go about working out 7bi?

I=V/R so decreasing the pd decreases the current. But the resistance increases.
12. This might sound really stupid but in experiments where you have to change temperature, how would you do this, because wouldn't the components get wet? On one of them it said to heat the thermistor in a beaker of water, so would you heat it first then take it out and do the experiment? I dont really get how it would work.

work out the voltage of z which is 6v. 10-6 is 4v. so, 4/3 is the current at y. EG, I=V/R, I=4/3 = 1.33A.

just say you'll use a water bath, look at the mark schemes to help you on certain questions

Brilliant mate, thank you!

Use a water bath WITH THERMOMETER! Make sure you add something like stir the water before taking measurement to ensure temperature is equal throughout water. Ignore the water-electricity=bad things.

Ok that makes sense. Thanks

Ok thanks, I think I'm just making things more complicated

no problem

Do you have the mark scheme for this paper, by any chance?
