# NECO Physics Practical Questions and Answers 2022/2023 (Complete Solution)

NECO Physics Practical Questions and Answers 2022. Many NECO candidates find it difficult to answer the NECO Practical Physics correctly due to not understanding the questions. I will show you the best way to answer NECO Physics Practical questions and make a good NECO result in your Physics examination.

You need to understand the NECO Physics Practical marking scheme before attempting any question so as to present your answers in such a way that it will look attractive to the examiner to earn you big marks.

Bear in mind that every single procedure is awarded marks. So, ensure you do not skip any step while reporting and presenting your practical results. And do not forget to remember that the units are very important.

The Physics Practical question paper will consist of three areas and general Physics questions namely:

1. Optics
2. Electricity
3. Mechanics

You will be expected to carry out an experiment, take readings and tabulate your values, plot graph, state precautions taken during the experiment, and report observation.

What you will see will not be far from the NECO Physics Specimen given to your school.

Note: Ensure you avoid parallax error while taking your readings to get accurate results and do not forget to choose lines of best fit while plotting the graph. It is not compulsory that all the points will enter the line.

(i)I ensured tight connections on all terminals

(ii) I avoided error due to parallax on the ammeter

(3bi)Period refers to the amount of time it takes a wave to complete one full cycle of oscillation or vibration. Frequency, on the contrary, refers to the number of complete cycles or oscillations occur per second. Period is a quantity related to time, whereas frequency is related to rate. Period simply refers to the time for something to occur periodically, whereas frequency means how often that happens.

1. Thermodynamics, science of the relationship between heat, work, temperature, and energy. In broad terms, thermodynamics deals with the transfer of energy from one place to another and from one form to another.

2. THERMODYNAMIC SYSTEM: A system is defined as a region in space containing a quantity of matter whose behaviour is being investigated. This quantity of matter is separated from its surroundings by boundary, such as the walls of a vessel.
