WAEC Physics Practical Questions and Answers 2022
QUESTION 1:
(a) You are provided with a uniform metre rule, a knife-edge, masses, and other necessary apparatus.
(i) Suspend the metre rule horizontally on the knife edge. Read and record the point of balance G of the metre rule. Keep the knife-edge at this point throughout the experiment.

(ii) Using the thread provided, suspend the object labeled W at the 15 cm of the metre rule.
(iii) Suspend a mass M = 20 g on the other side of G Adjust the position of the mass until the metre rule balances horizontally again.
(iv) Read and record the position Y of the mass M on the metre rule.
(v) Determine and record the distance L between the mass and G. Also determine and record the distance D between W and G.

(vi) Repeat the procedure for four other values of M = 40g, 60g, 80g, and 100g. In each case, ensure that W is kept constant at the 15 cm mark and the knife-edge at G.

(viii) Plot a graph of M on the vertical axis against L¬¹ on the horizontal axis.
(ix) Determine the slope s, of the graph.
Evaluate s/D
(x) State two precautions taken to obtain accurate results.
(b) (i) State the principles of moments.
(ii) Define centre of gravity.
