Answer the questions below.
For each item, select an option. When finished, click the "Done" button.
1. What are placed in the two holes of the solid metal?
A thermometer and a temperature probe
A thermometer and an immersion heater
Two immersion heaters

2. Before any heating what should you do with the metal?
Take the mass
Cool it down
Test the resonance

3. Why is an insulating material used?
To stop us burning ourselves
To make it a fair test
To reduce energy transfer to the surroundings

4. What should the potential difference be?
5V
10V
15V

5. Why would we measure potential difference and current?
To calculate power
To calculate resistance
To calculate energy

6. How is energy calculated?
E = V/I
E = V x R
E = P x t

7. Which measurement of temperature is used?
Lowest temperature – Highest temperature
Highest temperature - Lowest temperature
Highest temperature reached

8. What would you do if the experiment was carried out in a liquid?
Halve the voltage
Use a date logger and temperature probe
Measure mass of liquid instead of volume

9. What is the unit of measurement for specific heat capacity?
J/Kg Celcius
Kg J Celcius
Kg/J Celcius

10. If the hole in which you place the thermometer in a metal block is too big, what would you do?
Nothing it will not affect results
Use a temperature probe instead
Add some water to the whole to reduce the insulating effects of air
