Question 1
The main reason for winding the coil of a moving coil meter
on an aluminium former is:
(A) the coil requires a stiff support
(B) aluminium is made in Australia
(C) the coil is brought quickly to rest by ‘eddy’ current damping ←
(D) aluminium makes the meter more sensitive

Question 2
In an experiment, a bar magnet is dropped through a long
plastic tube. The experiment is repeated using a copper tube
of the same length and diameter. Which is correct?
(A) The magnet will take the same time to hit the floor in both cases.
(B) The magnet will come to rest in the middle of the copper tube.
(C) The magnet will take longer to fall through the copper tube. ←
(D) The magnet will take longer to fall through the plastic tube.

Question 3
A current of 5.0 A flows in a wire that is placed in a magnetic field of 0.5 T.
The wire is 0.7 m long and is at an angle of to the field.
How much force acts on the wire?
(A) 0 N
(B) 0.9 N
(C) 1.5 N ←
(D) 1.8 N

Question 4
Why do some electrical appliances in the home need a
transformer instead of operating directly from mains power?
(A) They require a voltage lower than the mains voltage. ←
(B) They require a source of energy that is DC rather than AC.
(C) They require an alternating current at a frequency other than 50 Hz.
(D) They consume less energy than a similar device without a transformer.

Question 5
A transformer which has 60 turns in the primary coil is used
to convert an input of 3 V into an output of 12 V.
Which description best fits this transformer?

Question 6
Coil A of 20 turns and coil B of 100 turns are both moved in a
uniform magnetic field so that they cut magnetic flux at the
same rate. The ratio of the electromotive force induced
across coil A to that in coil B is:
(A) 1:5 ←
(B) 1:1
(C) 5:1
(D) 10:1

Question 7
A strong bar magnet is dropped through a coil of many turns.
A centre-zero galvanometer is connected to the coil. As the
magnet approaches, passes through, then leaves the coil, the
pointer of the galvanometer:
(A) deflects to the right, then returns to zero
(B) deflects to the left
(C) deflects to the right, returns to zero and then deflects to the left ←
(D) deflects to the right

Question 8

generator?
(A) The magnetic field in a generator points in the opposite
direction to the one in a motor.
(B) Current flows in different directions for each device.
(C) Motors and generators are rotated about different axes.
(D) The coils of a motor are turned by electromagnetic
force, but the coils of a generator are not. ←

(A) An induced clockwise current sets up a north pole.
(B) An induced clockwise current sets up a south pole.
(C) An induced anticlockwise current sets up a north pole. ←
(D) An induced anticlockwise current sets up a south pole.

Question 11
Why is a motor more likely to burn out when it jams rather
than when it is running normally?
(A) The large back emf when it jams produces an increase in current.
(B) The motor coil has more resistance when it jams.
(C) Eddy currents in the coil when it jams cause the coil to overheat.
