3. A metal wire is heated while the potential difference across it remains constant.

The resistance of the wire increases because





4. Electrons are accelerated across a potential difference of 75 kV in an X-ray tube.

How much work is done on a single electron?





5. An electron pulse in an X-ray tube produces an average current of 3.0 mA for 0.5 s.

How much charge is transferred by this pulse?





6. A standing wave is created when two progressive waves travelling in opposite directions combine.

Select the line of the table which correctly indicates the phase difference between the progressive waves at X and the phase difference between the progressive waves at Y

8. The type of electromagnetic radiation used for mobile telephone transmissions is





9. Select the current-potential difference (I-V) graph that shows resistance increasing with increasing potential difference.





10. A student carries out an experiment to determine the resistivity of a wire of crosssectional area A. He measures the resistance R of the wire for different lengths l.

When plotted, which of the following graphs would give a gradient that could be used to calculate resistivity?
