    ADDITIONALMATHEMATICSPR0JECTwoRKIIzoLSIntroduction rone of the mathematical concepts which we must be familiar with is logarithms'Before the days of scientific calculators, logarithms were used to multiply or divideextreme numbers using mathematical tables. For these calculations, ten was the mostcommon base to usel Logarithm to the base of ten is also called the commontogarithm" other bases su-ch as fi,vo, five and eight can also be used' The ancientBabylonians had used bases up to 60.Logarithms have many applications in various fields of studies. In the eafly 17th..rr"tury it was rapidly uOopi.O by navigators, scientists, engineers and astronomers toperform computations more easily.

    PART 1a) Write a history on logarithm.b) Find and explain the applications of logarithrn inJwo different fields of study"Explanation bf each application should include the following :

    i) The field of studY chosen.iii Examples of proLlem solving related to the flreld of sfudy.


    PART 2The volume , V" incm3, of a solid sphere and its diameter, D, in cm, are related by theequation V -- mDn, where m and n are constants'You can find the value of m and of n by conducting the activities below'

    a i) Choose six different spheres with diameters between 1 cm to 8 cm'Measure the diameters of the six spheres using a pair ofvernier callipers.Find the volume of each sphere without using the formula of volume.(You can use the apparatus in the science lab to help you)Tabulate the values of the diameter, D, in cm, and its correspondingvolume, V, incm3.

    b Find the value of m andof n using logarithms with any two sets of valuesobtained in the table above.Selangor Education DePartment

    (A)PART 3In our daily life, the relation between two variables is not always in a linear form. Forexample, the relation between the volume, V, and the diameter, D, inPattZ above"Plot i/against D using suitable scales.When the graph V against D is drawn, the value of tn and Of n arc not easilydetermined from the graph. If the non-linear relation is changed to a linear form, aline of best fit can be drawn and the values of the constants and other information eanbe obtained easily.a) Reduce the equation V : mD'to a linear form.b) Using the data from Part 2, plotthe graph and draw the line of best fit.c) Fromthe graph, find

    i) the value of m and of n, thus express Zin terms of D,ii) the volume of the sphere when the diameter is 5 cm, andiii) the radius of the sphere when the volume is 180 cm3.

    FIIRTHER EXPLORATIONa) Compare the equation obtained in Part 3 (B) c (i) with the formuia of volume

    of sphere. Hence, find the value of zc.b) Suggest another method to find the value of zu.

    calculate the price index that involves some of the items mentioned above.(i) In order to calculate the price index of all the items above, we have to consider the

    average monthly expenses of any previous year as the base year.Select the appropriate year as the base year. \

    (ii) Hence, complete Table 2 below:
