WAEC 2020 PHYSICS Practical Questions And Answers


(i) I ensured that the meter rule balances horizontally before readings are taken in order to avoid experimental error.
(ii) I ensured that parallax error was avoided when taking the readings on The meter rule by viewing its calibration vertically.

(1bi) Moment of a force can be defined as the product of the force and its perpendicular distance from its point of action.
Moment of a force = force * Perpendicular distance of its line of action from the point
Moment = F * L
The S.I unit is Newton-meter(Nm).
It is a vector quantity

From the principle of moment:
Sum of clockwise moment = Sum of anti-clockwise moment

60 * x=m * y
60 * 25 = m * 30
Divide both sides by 30
60 * 25/30 = m *30/30
m=60 * 25/30
m=2 * 25

E = 3.00V

R(ohms) | I(A) | V(v)
1.0 0.40 0.65
2.0 0.35 0.58
4.0 0.28 0.50
6.0 0.22 0.45
8.0 0.18 0.40

(i) I avoided error due to parallax when reading the ammeter and voltmeter.
(ii) I ensured tight connections.

(i) It increases current supplied.
(ii) It makes up for any defect in any of the cells.

(i) Resistivity of the wire or coil.
(ii) Length of the material
