Question 1

Nuclear power stations don't burn fossil fuels, so don't contribute to global warming.
  • True
  • False

Question 2

Ben buys an oven. The inside and outside surfaces of the oven are light coloured and shiny. Explain why.
  • light, shiny surfaces are good insulators
  • light, shiny surfaces are good reflectors
  • light, shiny surfaces increase ultraviolet radiation

Question 3

Why, on average, do wind turbines operate at maximum power output for only 30% of the time?
  • Because wind power is unreliable as the amount of wind at any given time is unpredictable, so they will not always be running at maximum efficiency.
  • Many of them are made poorly.
  • If they operated at 100%, they would break.

Question 4

Solids are difficult to compress because their particles are packed together tightly. This is due to...
  • strong forces of attraction
  • ionic bonds
  • large nucleuses

Question 5

Gases will spread to fill their container because...
  • because of weak forces of attraction and particles being spread far apart
  • the particles have lots of energy
  • the particles don't have many electrons so are able to move freely

Question 6

Hannah puts uncooked biscuits into an oven. What type of electromagnetic radiation makes biscuits turn brown?
  • ultraviolet
  • infra red
  • ultrasound

Question 7

What does a frequency of 440 Hz mean?
  • The sound wave compresses 440 times in a second
  • The sound wave compresses 440 times in an hour
  • The sound wave compresses 440 times in a minute
  • The sound wave moves at 440 miles per hour

Question 8

It is incredibly likely that a nuclear power station could have a nuclear disaster.
  • True
  • False

Question 9

Which of the following is NOT a disadvantage of replacing an old fridge with a new fridge?
  • Cost
  • More energy efficient
  • Disposing of the old fridge is time consuming
  • Fridge goes to a landfill

Question 10

A copper block is placed into an emmersion heater. Energy is transferred through the copper block. What is the name of the process by which this energy is transferred?
  • Conduction
  • Convection
  • Radiation

Question 11

A student has a table of continuous data. Suggest what type of graph the student should use.
  • Line graph
  • Bar chart
  • Box plot
  • Histogram
