In this diagram the names for three symbols have been replaced with the letters X, Y and Z. List the names for these three symbols respectively.

End of Question 2

Question 3.
Recall the term used to explain the measure of how much a load restricts and reduces the flow of current in a circuit.

End of Question 3

Question 4.

A water pump can be used as an analogy of an electrical circuit. Clarify what the valve and water wheel represent respectively.

End of Question 4

Question 6.
Explain what would happen with an increase in resistance in an electric circuit.

End of Question 6

Question 7.

Consider this diagram showing an electric circuit. Predict what would happen if one of the 3-volt globes were to burn out.

End of Question 7

Question 8.

Consider this diagram showing an electrical circuit. Predict what would happen if one of the 6-volt globes were to burn out.

End of Question 8

Question 9.
The lights on a Christmas tree are arranged in a particular order. Often when one globe fails, the remainder of the lights do not light up. Recall how lights in such a circuit are arranged.

End of Question 9

Question 10.
Identify which of the following equations is not an expression of Ohm's Law, in which V = voltage, R = resistance and I = current?

End of Question 10

Question 11.
Explain what occurs when the voltage in an electrical circuit doubles.

End of Question 11

Question 12.

This diagram shows a series circuits with two identical light bulbs. Calculate the resistance of each light globe.

End of Question 12

Question 13.

This diagram shows the magnetic field from loops of wire around an iron core. Identify which of the following would not have any effect on the strength of the electromagnet produced.

End of Question 13

Question 14.

This diagram shows the operation of an electric bell. In this circuit, identify when the current will flow.

End of Question 14

Question 15.


This diagram shows how a current can be produced in a coil of wire. The arrow on the wire shows the direction the current flows as the north pole of the magnet moves closer to the coil of wire. Explain when this direction will remain the same.

End of Question 15

Question 16.

This diagram shows the steps in the path of electricity from a power station to a house. Identify why transformers are used.

End of Question 16

Question 17.

There are two main kinds of waves, as shown in this diagram. List the order of the missing words from P to S.

End of Question 17

Question 18.

This diagram shows the sensitivity of the eyes to various colours. Identify the colour that has a wavelength of about 570 nanometres

End of Question 18

Question 19.

This diagram shows the behaviour of different types of radio waves. Identify the types of radio waves that can 'bounce off' space satellites.

End of Question 19

Question 20.

This table shows the maximum number of two-way conversations that can be had using different methods of transmission. Identify which of the following statements is true.

End of Question 20
