  1. S/n: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
  2. L(cm): 150.0, 120.0, 100.0, 80.0, 60.0, 40.0
  3. t(sec): 4.800, 4.100, 3.300, 2.600, 1.900, 1.200
  4. t^-1(Sec^-1): 0.208, 0.244, 0.303, 0.385, 0.526, 0.833
  5. t^2(sec^2): 23.40, 16.81, 10.89, 6.76, 3.61, 1.44
  6. L/t^2(m/s^2): 6.510, 7.139, 9.183, 11.83, 16.6, 27.7

Precautions for Physics Specimen:

  1. I ensured the experiment was not affected by air interference when determining the balance points
  2. I ensured the mass roll down freely as being influenced under gravity
  3. I ensured that the readings were taken without any error

DEFINITIONS IN PHYSICS YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • FORCE OF GRAVITY: The total gravitational force which acts on a body and so enables it,in turn to exert an equal force on its support
  • DISPLACEMENT: This Is defined as the distance moved in a specified direction
  • NEWTONIAN MECHANICS: This is defined as the rate of change of distance moved with time in a specified direction or rate of change of displacement
  • UNIFORM VELOCITY: A body moved with uniform velocity if its rate of change of distance moved with time in a specified direction is constant
  • ACCELERATION: This is defined as the rate of change of velocity with time
  • INERTIA: The tendency of a body to remain at rest or if moving, to continue its motion in a straight line
  • UNIFORM ACCELERATION: A body moved with uniform acceleration, if its rate of change of velocity with time in a specified direction is constant
  • DECELERATION: A decreasing velocity or slowing down is usually called retardation.

QUESTION 2

Readings:
S/n: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
D: 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40
D^2: 10000, 8100, 6400, 4900, 3600, 2500, 16
X1: 80.60, 70.20, 59.10, 47.80, 29.00, 20.35
X2: 18.30, 19.00, 20.00, 22.00, 7.60, 4.50, 1.0
L (X1-X2): 62.20, 51.20, 39.10, 24.70, 21.40, 15.85

PRECAUTIONS:

  1. I ensured parallax when reading the metre rule.
  2. I ensured that the intensity or source of light was maintained.

Expected Question:

An illuminated object is placed on the axis of a converging lens and a magnified image is obtained on the screen. If the distance of the image from the lens is 45cm and the magnification is 2, calculate the focal length of lens.

SOLUTION:

V=45.00cm
m=2
u=?
M=v/u=45/2 = 22.5cm
F=uv/v+u = 22.5*45.00/22.5+45.00 = 1012.5/67.5 = 15cm

QUESTION 3

Readings:
S/n: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
L1: 20, 40, 60, 80, 100
L2: 10, 15, 25, 35, 45
I1(A): 0.50, 0.40, 0.32, 0.22, 0.14
I2(A): 0.58, 0.53, 0.45, 0.41, 0.37
I1^-1: 0.20, 2.50, 3.13, 4.55, 7.143
I2^1: 1.724, 1.890, 2.22, 2.44, 2.70


PRECAUTIONS:

  1. I will ensure that the key is opened when no reading is taken to avoid battery wastage.
  2. I ensured tight connection -I ensured error due to parallax when taking reading from the ameter
  3. I will ensure that the circuit element are tightly connected to ensure accurate result

YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS:

Electromotive force is the potential difference between the terminals of a cell when no current is flowing in the circuit.

NOTE THAT ^ MEANS RAISE TO POWER.

  1. Eg: 2^4 Means 2 raise to power 4.
  2. L^-2 means L raise to power
  3. -2(minus two)
  4. -COMMA MEANS NEXT LINE. Eg: x: 4,2,3,4,5 means that you draw a table, then under x, you will get 4, under 4 is 2, under 2 is 3, under 3 is 4 and so on.
