(a)

Description of

a magnetic field
:

A magnetic field is a r
e
gion in which
a force is felt from a magnet or an
electric cu
r
rent.

Explanation of how field varies
:

The magnetic field strength of a bar
can be shown by the proximity of
lines of force
.

Where the lines are close
t
o
gether,
the magnetic field is strong. Where
the lines are far apart, the magnetic
field is weak.

Explanation of effect on compass
needle
:

The magnetic fields of the two bar
magnets are of equal strength
where the compass is located. This
results in equal

forces on the co
m-
pass needle. The forces are also in
opposite dire
c
tions so the net force
on the needle is zero, and the ne
e-
dle points northward as drawn b
e-
cause of Earth’s magnetic field.

TWO of:

in (a)

a magnetic
field

strength of the
magnetic field
around a bar
magnet

appropriate fo
r-
mula for finding
the current, mo
d-
ifies it, and su

but does not
substitute the
correct unit for
power.

TWO of:

ns
how the strength
of a magnetic
field varies, with
the field stron
g-
est
near

the
poles and wea
k-
er t

ma
g
net

in (a)
,

states that
the needle mai
n-
tains its shown
position
because

the mag
netic
fo
r
ces are equal
and opposite

in (b)
,

formulae relate

the

attempt to

.

in (a) connects
the equal
strengths and
opposite dire
c-
tions of
the two
magnetic field
s

with a zer

e
dle
, and
hence the co
m-
pass needle

:

P = VI

that
bulbs in s

Comparison of brightness
:

The bulbs in each eye are di
m
mer
than the bulb in the body.

Explanation on comparison
:

Each bulb requires 6.0 V to light up
t
o its full brightness. The bulb in the
body has 6.0V across it b
e
cause it
is connected in parallel with the
battery, so it lights up to full brigh
t-
ness.

The bulbs in the eyes are co
n
nec
t-
ed in series with the battery. Each
bulb has only 3.0 V across it (i.
e.
their equal share of the 6V), and
will light up to half the brigh
t
ness of
the bulb in the body

(a
s
suming their
resistance is co
n
stant).

half the current to that of the body
light. Brightness is determined by
power. As
P=V.I and V = ½ and I =
½, for each eye light then P = ¼ of
the power of the body light.

(b
)

(iii)

Calculation of current from battery
:

Total resistance of bulbs in the
eyes = 4

+ 4

= 8

V =IR, so I

=
V
/
R

= 6/8

= 0.75 A

Calculation of power
:

P

=
V x I

= 6.0 x 0.75

= 4.5 W

Drawing of charge distribution
:

Ball shows positive charges on the
left side (close to the neg
a
tively
charged rod) and negative charges
on the opp
o
site side (away
from the
charged rod).

Explanation of attraction
:

Positive charges are induced at the
end of the ball closer to the rod.
Since opposite charges attract, the
ball now moves towards the rod.

u-
ation
by e
x
plai

ing th

of the ball to the

in (b

unde

of
how principles

e
late to the sit
u-
ation by

e
x

in (c)

late to the sit
u-
ation
by e
x
plai
n-
ing by giving a

partial expla
n
a-
tion of the m
o
tion
of the ball.

TWO of:

in (a)
,

connects
the greater a
t-
tractive force
with the smaller
distance of the
opposite charges
and so there is a
net a
t
tractive
force on the ball
to explain the a
t-
tra
c
tion of the
ball to the rod

in
(b)
,

connects
the transfer of
charge to the ball
with the then like
charges on the
rod and ball to
explain the r
e-
pulsion of the
ball from the rod

in (c)
,

e
x
plains
that earthing r
e-
moves the e
x-
cess charges
from the ball
making the ball
u
n
charged, and
then co
nsiders
the
charge distr
i-
butions, the di
s-
tances i
n
volved
,

and the forces
acting on the ball
to explain the
motion of the
ball.

(b)

Drawing of charge distribution
:

Ball

show
s

negative charge
.

Explanation of repulsion
:

W
hen the ball touches the rod,
some ne
gative charges are tran
s-
ferred to the ball.

This action means that the ball now
has excess negative charges.

Since like charges repel, the ball
is
repel
led

away from the rod.

(c)

Drawing of charge distribution
:

Ball now has no excess charge, OR
the sa
me as in Diagram 5 (showing
separation).

Description and explanation of m
o-
tion
:

The negative charges are tran
s-
ferred from the ball to the girl when
she touches it. The ball is then u
n-
charged and no force of repulsion
acts on it, so it is now attracted
back

to the neg
a
tively charged rod.
