UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE INTERNATIONAL EXAMINATIONS General Certificate of Education Advanced Subsidiary Level and Advanced Level *5669961664* PHYSICS 9702/36 Advanced Practical Skills 2 October/November 2010 2 hours Candidates answer on the Question Paper. Additional Materials: As listed in the Confidential Instructions. READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST Write your Centre number, candidate number and name on all the work you hand in. Write in dark blue or black pen. You may use a soft pencil for any diagrams, graphs or rough working. Do not use staples, paper clips, highlighters, glue or correction fluid. DO NOT WRITE IN ANY BARCODES. Answer both questions. You will be allowed to work with the apparatus for a maximum of one hour for each question. You are expected to record all your observations as soon as these observations are made, and to plan the presentation of the records so that it is not necessary to make a fair copy of them. You may lose marks if you do not show your working or if you do not use appropriate units. Additional answer paper and graph paper should be used only if it becomes necessary to do so. You are reminded of the need for good English and clear presentation in your answers. At the end of the examination, fasten all your work securely together. All questions in this paper carry equal marks. For Examiner’s Use 1 2 Total This document consists of 10 printed pages and 2 blank pages.

Examiner’s Use 1 In this experiment, you will investigate the equilibrium position of a flat board. (a) The board is suspended from a nail as in Fig. 1.1. Check that the board can swing freely. retort stand nail held in boss board holes l h1 h2 bench Fig. 1.1 (b) Measure the heights h1 and h2 of the two lower corners of the board above the bench. If necessary, add a small amount of Blu-Tack to the top edge of the board so that the two heights are the same (i.e. so that the lower edge of the board is parallel to the bench). (c) Measure and record the length l of the lower edge of the board. l = ................................. cm © UCLES 2010 9702/36/O/N/10 3 For (d) Using the wire hook, attach the 150 g mass to the top hole in the board, as shown Examiner’s in Fig. 1.2. Use metre rule d set square θ h1 h2 bench Fig. 1.2 The distance d is measured from the top edge of the board to the hole with the hook in it. The angle is the angle between the lower edge of the board and the horizontal. (e) (i) Measure and record h1 and h2. You may find it useful to use a set square as shown in Fig. 1.2. h1 = ................................. cm h2 = ................................. cm (ii) Using your answer from (c), calculate (in degrees) using the relationship h1 – h2 sin = . l = ................................. ° (iii) Measure and record d. d = ................................. © UCLES 2010 9702/36/O/N/10 [Turn over 4 For (f) Increase d by moving the hook and 150 g mass to a lower hole in the board, and Examiner’s repeat (e) until you have five sets of readings of h1, h2 and d. Use 1 Include in your table values for and . tan 1 (g) (i) Plot a graph of on the y-axis against d on the x-axis. tan (ii) Draw the straight line of best fit.

Examiner’s Use 2 In this experiment, you will investigate the frictional force between strips of paper. (a) You have been provided with three strips of paper, one of which is shaped, and a wire hook. Attach the wire hook to the end of the shaped strip by folding and glueing, as shown in Fig. 2.1. Glue together the other two strips over a 4 cm length at one end and clamp this glued end to the bench. Position the strips as shown in Fig. 2.1. clamp shaped strip hook 4 cm strips glued here bench paper folded over and glued Fig. 2.1 (b) (i) You have also been provided with two rubber pencil erasers. Measure the length and width of the larger eraser and use these to calculate the area A of the largest face as shown in Fig. 2.2. A Fig. 2.2 length = ................................. width = ................................. A = ................................. (ii) Justify the number of significant figures that you have given for your value of A. .................................................................................................................................... .................................................................................................................................... .................................................................................................................................... © UCLES 2010 9702/36/O/N/10 9 For (c) (i) Place the larger rubber pencil eraser on top of the paper strips and balance Examiner’s the 500 g mass on top of the eraser, as shown in Fig. 2.3. Use (ii) Attach the newton-meter to the hook and lay it horizontally on the bench as shown in Fig. 2.3. Check that it reads zero (adjust the zero if necessary). 500 g mass newton-meter hook eraser Fig. 2.3 (d) (i) Pull the newton-meter until the middle paper strip starts to slide. Take measurements to determine the average force F that just makes the strip slide. Show your working. F = ................................. (ii) By considering the measurements that you took in (i), estimate the uncertainty in your value of F. uncertainty = ................................. N © UCLES 2010 9702/36/O/N/10 [Turn over 10 For (e) Repeat (b)(i), (c) and (d)(i) but using the smaller piece of rubber eraser. Examiner’s Use length = ................................. width = ................................. A = ................................. F = ................................. (f) It is suggested that F remains constant when A is changed. Using your answer in (d)(ii), explain whether your results support the suggested relationship. ........................................................................................................................................... ........................................................................................................................................... ........................................................................................................................................... ........................................................................................................................................... ........................................................................................................................................... © UCLES 2010 9702/36/O/N/10 11 For (g) (i) Describe four sources of uncertainty or limitations of the procedure in this experiment.
