1. The diagram shows a cross-section through a rain-water puddle formed in a shallow hole in a road surface.

Over a period of time, air temperature, wind speed and win direction remains constant.

What happens to the rate of evaporation of water from the puddle?
2. In a vacuum flask, which methods of heat transfer are prevented by the vacuum?
3. Which of the following statements is true in relation to the transfer of energy?
4. The specific latent heat of vaporization of water is about 6.7 times than that of the specific latent heat of fusion of water. What is the ratio of the latent heat of vaporization of 6.7 kg of water compared to the latent heat of fusion of 1 kg of water?
5. A teacher has a large tank of water in which he wants to set up a convection current.

Which of the following arrangements would do this?
6. How can the sensitivity of a liquid-in-glass thermometer be increased?
7. Heat energy is supplied at the same rate to 100 g of paraffin and to 100 g of water in similar containers.

Why does the temperature of the paraffin rise more quickly?
