2. Which of the following summarises the change in wave characteristics when going from ultraviolet to infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum?





3. Electrical power is transferred in a motor as shown.

What is the efficiency of the motor?





4. A ray of monochromatic light passes into a glass block as shown.

The refractive index of the glass for this light is





5. An electron is accelerated from rest through a potential difference of 5.0 kV.

The kinetic energy gained by the electron is





6. A particular sound is investigated by connecting a microphone to an oscilloscope. The diagram shows the trace of a sound wave on the oscilloscope. The screen of the oscilloscope has a grid on it. On the x-axis 1 division represents 5 ms.

The frequency of the sound wave is





7. Two coherent sources emit waves of wavelength λ which are in phase. The two points meet at a point, having travelled slightly different distances. The waves now have a phase difference of 180°.

Which of the following could be the path difference at this point?





8. The potential difference between points A and B is





9. Ultrasound is used to investigate the blood in an artery in a human body by detecting a Doppler shift. This Doppler shift is used to measure the





10. The effect of diffraction is more noticeable, in everyday life, with sound than with light. This is because
