Answers to 5117/ 5118 2014 O level Combined Science (Biology) MCQ Paper 1

Dear students, we are sorry for not uploading the 5117/ 5118 2014 O level Combined Science (Biology) answers/ solutions earlier. We have been trying to answer an overwhelming number of questions from students wanting an explanation to our previous solutions. All solutions/ answers are provided by teachers of Penciltutor School and the Singapore MOE or UCLES bears no responsibility for these suggested solutions/ answers. As usual, if you find any errors in our solutions or if you need an explanation, kindly send an email to admin@penciltutor.com.

Questions regarding Physics 5116 Q20 answer

Student says:
"ans is D cuz larger current to strengthen the demagnetisation process or make the steel bar more nt magnet as alternating current(more will be btr to demagnetise) whereas C is decreasing the current means weakening the demagnetising process as the alternative current drops"

Penciltutor explains:
"the answer is C as demagnetization of a ferromagnetic material (such as steel) occurs due to successive hysteresis loops. The area of this hysteresis loop is proportional to the energy that is transformed to thermal energy. The formula which deals with the magnetic field inside a solenoid is B = μnΙ, where B is the magnetic field; μ is the magnetic permeability of steel; n is the number of loops per unit length and I is the current in amperes. Since B is directly proportional to I, to decrease the magnetic field (in successive hysteresis loops), the current must be decreased too. You will learn more about this in A level physics!"

Feel free to drop us an email if you do not agree with any of our answers or if you need any clarifications.
