With the aid of a diagram explain how you would magnetize a steel bar so as to obtain a south pole at marked end of the bar by
Which of the above method produced a stronger magnet? Give a reason.
Main scale reading: 10.0 cm
Vernier scale reading: 0.02 cm (Alignment of scale lines)
Vernier Callipers reading = Main scale reading + Vernier scale reading: = 10.0 cm + 0.02 cm = 10.02 cm
Example
This vernier callipers has a zero error of +0.13cm
Correction of the Positive Error
Example
This vernier callipers has a negative error of -0.02 cm
Correction of the Negative Error
Exercise
The figure below shows a vernier callipers
State the correct reading of the scale if the instrument has a zero error of –0.02cm.
Example
Sleeve scale reading: 2.5 mm
Thimble scale reading: 0.38 mm
Micrometer reading: 2.88 mm
It occurs if the zero mark of the thimble scale does not coincide with the horizontal(centre) line of the sleeve scale when the micrometer is closed without an object.

Find the moment of the force about the pivot in the figure below
Moment of a force = force × perpendicular distance
∴ moment of force about pivot=20N×0.4m = 8Nm
Examples
Exercise
A half meter rule is suspended vertically from a pivot at the 0cm mark. It is maintained in the vertical position by four horizontal forces acting in the directions shown in the figure below.
The 10.0N force acts through the 15cm mark, 4.0N force through the 20cm mark and 5.0N force through the 40cm mark. Calculate F which acts through the 30 cm mark.
Exercise
A uniform metal rod of length 80cm and mass 3.2kg is supported horizontally by two vertical spring’s balances C and D balance C is also from one end while balance D is 30cm from the other end. Find the reading on each balance.
Example
Two vertical equal and opposite forces act on a meter rule at 20cm and 90cm marks respectively. If each of the forces has a magnitude of 4.0N, calculate their moment on the meter rule about the 40cm mark.
solution
Total moment = one of the force,F x perpendicular distance between the forces,d
=4.0N×(0.9-0.2)m
=4.0N ×0.7
=2.8Nm

Aim: To show that sound requires a material medium to travel. (I.e.sound does not travel in vacuum)
Apparatus
Procedure
Conclusion
The above observations show that the sound cannot travel through a vacuum. It needs a material medium for propagation.
Example
