(a)The string is wrapped 5 times round the beaker and marked as shown
in Fig. 1
The string is held against a metre rule as shown in Fig.2.

Write down the length of the string between the marks.


length = ........................cm

(ii)

Calculate the circumference c of the beaker.


c = ........................cm

(iii) Suggest one source of error in this method of


determining the circumference.

(iv) Suggest one improvement to this method.

(b) A rule is placed beside the beaker, as shown in Figure.

(i)

Write down the depth d of the water in the beaker.


d = ...................... cm

(ii) Calculate the surface area A of the curved surface of the


beaker up to the water
level using the equation A = dc.

In an experiment to determine the volume of glass beads, a student
used two different methods.
Method 1

Figure 1 shows the end view of the apparatus


Figure 2 shows the side view of the same apparatus, drawn
actual size.
The student measured the combined diameters of some beads
and then calculated the
volume of one bead.
(a) (i) On Fig. 2, use your rule to measure the distance x, in cm.
..............................................................................................
.............
(ii) Calculate d, the average diameter in cm of one glass
bead. Show your working.
d = .......................cm
(iii) Calculate V, the volume of one glass bead using the
equation

V=

d3
6
V = ..............................

Method 2
The student used a displacement method to determine the
volume of a glass bead. Fig. 3

and Fig. 4 show how this was done.


(b) (i) Write down the values of the readings taken
2. __________

1. ________

(ii) Calculate the volume of 225 glass beads.

(c) Suggest which of the two methods will give the more
accurate result for the volume of a
glass bead. Give a reason for your answer.
Write down the following in standard form:
a 1000 kg
b 1000000 m
c 0.001 s
d 0.37 kg
Calculate the density of a steel door of mass 585 kg and dimensions
2.0 m0.75 m0.050 m.
Express the following in mm:
a 2.7 m
b 22.4 cm
c 0.33 m
d 5.6 104 nm.
