## Using Exam pro items to support successful outcomes

Learners will be able to test their progress against learning outcomes using questions taken from past AQA GCSE questions.

### Q1 Foundation

AQA-PH1FP-QP-Jun12 Q1 The appliances shown on the next slide transfer electrical energy to other types of energy.

The vacuum cleaner is designed to transfer electrical energy to kinetic energy.

a)Name the three other appliances which are also designed to transfer electrical energy to kinetic energy.

Q1 cont. b) Which two of the following statements are true?

•A Appliances only transfer part of the energy usefully.

•B The energy transferred by appliances will be destroyed.

•C The energy transferred by appliances makes the surroundings warmer.

•D The energy output from an appliance is bigger than the energy input.

Q2 Foundation Exampro QM94R505

The diagram shows what happens to each 100 joules of energy from crude oil when it is used as petrol in a car.

The widths of the arrows show exactly how much energy is transferred in each particular way.

(a) Complete the diagram by adding the correct energy value alongside each arrow. (3)

(b) Calculate how efficient the car engine is at transferring the energy

from petrol

into useful movement.

(2)

(c) Two students are discussing the diagram.

The first says that

none

of the energy released from the crude oil is really lost.

The other says that

all

of the energy released from the crude oil is really lost.

What do you think?

(b)

evidence of or

20%/0.2 gains 1 mark

but

25%/0.25

or

figure consistent with B in part (a)

gains 2 marks 2

(c)

ideas that

“lost” energy is (also) transferred (in ways we don’t want) total amount of energy (before and after any transfer) remains the same energy becomes (progressively) more spread out/less easy to transfer again this applies to

all

the energy/even to the energy usefully transferred

## Q3 higher

AQA-PH1HP-QP-Jan12 Q 6 The table on the next slide gives data about two types of low energy bulb.

(a) Both types of bulb produce the same useful power output.

(a) (i) Calculate the useful power output of the CFL.

Use the correct equation from the Physics Equations Sheet.

Useful power output = ................................................. W

6 (b) Sketch and label a Sankey diagram for the CFL

(2 marks)

6 (c) LED bulbs are expensive. This is because of the large number of individual electronic LED chips needed to produce sufficient light from each bulb.

6 (c) (i) Use the data in the table to evaluate the cost effectiveness of an LED bulb compared to a CFL.

(2 marks)

6 (c) (ii) Scientists are developing brighter and more efficient LED chips than those currently used in LED bulbs.

Suggest one benefit of developing brighter and more efficient LED chips.
