APPARATUS :you are provided with cells, a potentiometre, an ammeter, a batteries, volt Meyer, a bulb, a key and jockey, jambadmission.com.ng for answers and  other necessary materials      
a) Draw the Diagram.               
i) measure and records the E. M. F. of the battery.              
ii) set -up a circuit as show in the diagram above               
iii) close the key K and use jockey to make a firm contact at J on the potentiometer wire such that P J=x =10cm.                    
iv) take and record the volt meter reading and corresponding value on the ammeter.                                   
v) repeat the procedure for other values of x=20,30,40,50,and 60cm.        
vi) Evaluate log V and log I.      
vii) Tabulate your readings.    
viii) plot a graph of log I on the vertical axis and log lolthe horizontal axis.            
ix)  Determine the slop s, of the graph.                                  
x) Determine the intercept C, on the vertical axis.                 
xi) State the precautions taken to ensure accurate result.                       
bi) How is the brightness the bulb affected as X increases and a reason.                                                                                                          
bii) List two electrical devices whose action do not support or obey ohm’s law.
QUESTION 2:                                                                                                
Aim :Effect of dissolved substances on the boiling point of water. 
Apparatus :Beaker (0-500cm3),water (distiller) measuringfree waec answers at jambadmission.com.ng cylinder (6x)                                                                                                                 Thermometer (0-200 degree centigrade), stirrer tripod stand with guard  stop watch /clock, Table salt (10g x5)                                       
Draw the diagram.                                                                                       Procedure :
i) fill the beaker half -full with (200cm 3)water heat steadily until it boils for 3min                                                                    
ii) Record the temperature of the boiling water ,Bo.                              
iii) And log of the common salt and stir to form a solution while visit jambadmission.com.ng heating until another boiling point Bi is attained.                                   
iv) Read and record Bi.                                                                               
v) Evaluate x=Bi-Bo .                                                                                   
vi) Use the same mixture repeat the procedure four more times by adding of salt each time to give cumulative mass M of salt 20,30,40,and 50.                                                                                          
vii) In each case allow the mixture to boil steadily for at least 2min, then read and record the boiling point Bi.                                    
viii) Tabulate your readings.
ix) Plot a graph of Mi on the vertical axis and X on the horizontal axis.                                                                                                              
x) Determine the slop of the graph.
