Move centre of compass along line from magnet
Judged parallel to OX in some sensible way
(e.g. use lined paper with a line along OX or
use ruler and set square, etc)
Tap compass to prevent sticking
Mark either end of needle as near as possible to
compass then mark A between
Look directly down on to compass so centre is
on line
N pole marked (RH end)
to direction approx.

temperature unit shown
way of taking an average
or there will be errors in readings, so way of
showing expected results without the errors

tick in box 1 and reason (e.g. difficult to measure temp to 1 oC)
or heat losses involved
or easy to measure mass to better than l g)
