Learning Outcome 4: The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.

Assessment Standard 4.1: We know this when the learner solves problems involving time, including relating time, distance and speed;

Learning Outcome 5: The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.

Assessment Standard 5.5: We know this when the learner organises (including grouping where appropriate) and records data using tallies, tables and stem-and-leaf displays;

Assessment Standard 5.8: We know this when the learner draws a variety of graphs by hand/technology to display and interpret data (grouped and ungrouped);

Assessment Standard 5.9: We know this when the learner critically reads and interprets data presented in a variety of ways to draw conclusions and make predictions sensitive.

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
