PHYSICS PAPER 1
8.30 am - 11.00 am (2% hours)
This paper must be answered in English
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
(1)



There are TWO sections, A and B, in this Paper. You are advised to finish Section A in about 60 minutes.

(2)

Section A consists of multiple-choice questions in this question paper, while Section B contains conventional questions printed separately in Question-Answer Book B.

(3)

Answers to Section A should be marked on the Multiple-choice Answer Sheet while answers to Section B should be written in the spaces provided in Question-Answer Book B. The Answer Sheet for Section A and the Question-Answer Book for Section B will be collected separately at the end of the examination.

(4)

The diagrams in this paper are NOT necessarily drawn to scale.

(5)

The last two pages of this question paper contain a list of data, formulae and relationships which you may find useful.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SECTION A (MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS)
(1)

Read carefully the instructions on the Answer Sheet. After the announcement of the start of the examination, you should first stick a barcode label and insert the information required in the spaces provided. No extra time will be given for sticking on the barcode label after the 'Time is up' announcement.

(2)

When told to open this book, you should check that all the questions are there. Look for the words 'END OF SECTION A' after the last question.

(3)

All questions carry equal marks.

(4)

ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS. You are advised to use an HB pencil to mark all the answers on the Answer Sheet, so that wrong marks can be completely erased with a rubber. You must mark the answers clearly; otherwise you will lose marks if the answers cannot be captured.

(5)

You should mark only ONE answer for each question. If you mark more than one answer, you will receive NO MARKS for that question.

(6)

No marks will be deducted for wrong answers.

Two metal blocks X and Y of the same mass and of initial temperatures 40°C and 30°C respectively are in good thermal contact as shown. The specific heat capacity of X is greater than that of Y. Which statement is correct when a steady state is reached? Assume no heat loss to the surroundings.

BlockX

The temperature of block X is higher than that of block Y.
Their temperature becomes the same and is lower than 35°C.
Their temperature becomes the same and is higher than 35°C. Their temperature becomes the same and is equal to 35°C.

When a patient's arm is wiped by a piece of cotton soaked with alcohol, the wiped area will feel cool as that patch of alcohol on the skin evaporates. Which statement explains this phenomenon? A.
B.
C.
D.

*3.

Block Y

The evaporation of alcohol absorbs heat from the patient's arm. The alcohol on the skin releases latent heat to the surrounding air. The motion of all the molecules in the patch of alcohol slows down. Air molecules remove heat from the patch of alcohol by conduction.
