WAEC Physics Practical questions to expect. Many WAEC candidates find it difficult to answer the WAEC Physics practical correctly due to not understanding the questions. We are going to be releasing the most Common Repeated Waec Physics Practical Specimen Questions which are likely to come out.

In this article, we are going to publish most physics specimens practical questions you are to expect during your exam day with instructions for the upcoming WAEC examinations for all Waec candidates who are writing.


Study the diagrams above and use them as guides in carrying out the following instructions

(i) Using the spring balance provided, determine the weight of object of mass M = 50.0g in air Record this weight as W1

(ii)Determine the weight of the object when it iv completely immersed in water contained in a ;beaker at shown in the diagram above Record the weight W2

(iii) Determine the weight of the object when it Is completely immersed in the liquid labelled L Record the weight as W3

        (iv)  Evaluate U= (W1-W2) and V= (W1 – W3)

(v)Repeat the procedure with the objects of masses M= 1OOg, 15O g, 200 g and 250 g

(vi)      In each case, evaluate U= (W1-W2) and V= (W1 – W3)

  1. Tabulate your readings
  2. Plot a graph with V on the vertical axis and U on the horizontal axis
  3. Determine the slopes, of the graph
  4. State two precautions taken to ensure accurate results

(b)    (i) State Archimedes’ principle
(ii) A piece of brass of mass 20.0g is hung on a spring balance from a rigid support and completely immersed in kerosene of density 8.0 x 102 kgm \ Determine the reading on the spring balance.
