(b) Velocity and frequency

(c) Wavelength and frequency

(d) Wavelength and velocity

Q5. The atmosphere exerts enormous pressure on us. But, we do not feel it because

(a) Our blood exerts a pressure slightly more than that of the atmosphere.

(b) We are used to it.

(c) Our bones are very strong and can withstand the pressure.

(d) The surface are of our head is very small.

Q6. Assertion (A) : With the increase of temperature, the viscosity of glycerin increases.

Reason (R) : Rise of temperature increases kinetic energy of molecules.


(a) Both (A) and (R) are true, and (R) is the correct explanation of (A). 

(b) Both (A) and (R) are true, but (R) is not the correct explanation of (A).

(c) (A) is true, but (R) is false.

(d) (A) is false, but (R) is true.

Q7. Food gets cooked faster in a pressure cooker because-

(a) Water starts boiling at a lower temperature due to high pressure

(b) Water starts boiling at a higher temperature due to high pressure

(c) Water boils only at 100° C but the heat content is higher at high pressure

(d) Convection currents are set inside the cooker

Q8. In cold countries, alcohol is preferred to mercury as a thermometric liquid because:

(a) Alcohol has a lower freezing point

(b) Alcohol is a better conductor of heat

(c) Alcohol is cheaper than mercury

(d) The world production of alcohol is greater than that of mercury

Q9. Pure water freezes at what temperature? 

(a) 47 F

(b) 32 F

(c)  0 F

(d) 19 F

Q10. CT Scan is done by using-

(a) Infra-red Rays

(b) Ultrasonic Waves 

(c) Visible Light 

(d) X-Rays



Exp. When the water is heated, its density decreases. The density of the water at 100°C is at the lowest, so the body will sink. Water density is maximum at 4°C, so the body will float.


Exp. It is easier to swim in sea water than in a river because, the sea water contains salt which increases the density of water and also increases its upthrust so, the chances of sinking get reduced and one can easily swim in such water.


Exp. The sunlight takes about 500 second or 8 minutes (apx) to reach to the earth.


Exp. When light passes from air to glass or one medium to another, then the frequency of the light remains constant but wavelength and velocity are changed.


Exp.The atmosphere exerts enormous pressure on us but we do not feel it, because our blood exerts pressure slightly more than that of the atmosphere. We feel this pressure in water because the pressure underwater is greater than our normal blood pressure.


Exp. The temperature dependence of liquid (Glycerin etc) viscosity is the phenomenon by which liquid viscosity tends to decrease as its temperature increases. The increase in temperature causes the kinetic or thermal energy to increase and the molecules become more movable.


Exp. Food can be cooked faster in a pressure cooker since the boiling point of water increases with pressure. As the water boils, the steam produced cannot evaporate so the pressure inside the cooker increases. At higher elevations, atmospheric pressure is lower and therefore water boils at lower temperature.


Exp. There are lots of reasons for using alcohol than mercury as thermometric liquids. Some alcohol has a very low freezing point of about-112°C and therefore is suitable to record very low temperature.


Exp.Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, 0 degrees Celsius, 273.15 Kelvin.


Exp.CT scan or computed tomography are special x-rays tests that produce cross-sectional images of the body using x-rays and a computer.
