16 of 46
what are 3 magnetic materials?
nickel,cobalt and steel
17 of 46
how is a permenant magnet created?
by heating a metal attracted to a magnet then when it has cooled the domains line up.
18 of 46
how is a temporary magnet made?
a metal is attracted to a magnet then the domains line up and it is a temporary magnet.
19 of 46
how can you vary the strength of a electro magnet?
the more volts used the more powerful the magnet.
20 of 46
how is a magnet destroyed?
heated,hit or placed near other magnets
21 of 46
if the PH scale was 3 is it acisic or an alkali?
22 of 46
if the universal indicator made it green what would it be?
23 of 46
what colour would a strong alkali be?
dark blue
24 of 46
how does sound travel?
vibrating particles
25 of 46
why cant sound travel through a vaccum?
because there is no particles
26 of 46
which state does sound travel fastest through?
a solid
27 of 46
why does lightning come before thunder?
because light travels faster than sound
28 of 46
list three ways of heat transfer
convection conduction and radiation
29 of 46
list the common food groups
carbohydrates,protein,fruit+veg,fats,dairy and sugar, vitamins and minerals, fibre
30 of 46
give an example of a carbohydrate
31 of 46
give an example of a protein
32 of 46
give an example of dairy
33 of 46
What is the role of enzymes?
Breaks down the food
34 of 46
How does breathing occur?
Air enters mouth, down the trachea, through the bronchi and then bronchi-holes and ends up in the alveoli
35 of 46
How does oxygen get into the blood?
The oxygen diffuses across into the blood
36 of 46
How are fossils formed?
A dead organism falls to the ground and covered by sediment, compressed under pressure and heat, bone degrades away and filled with cement-like stuff.
37 of 46

Metamorphic, Igneous, Sedimentary
39 of 46
How is metamorphic rock made?
Sedimentary rock under pressure and heat
40 of 46
How is igneous rock made?
Molten rocks cools to form crystals in rock
41 of 46
What are volcanoes?
A large mound of earth with magma inside chambers
42 of 46
How is a sound's volume linked to the wave amplitude?
The wave is taller if the sound is louder
43 of 46
How is the sound's pitch related to the wave length?
The closer the peaks, the higher the pitch
44 of 46
How does an ear hear sound?
The vibrations are picked up by the ear drum.
