(a) 15.0km/sec.

(b) 21.1km/sec.

(c) 7.0km/sec

(d) 11.2km/sec

## Solution

Ans.1.(a)

Exp. Electromagnetic waves are propagated by oscillating electric and magnetic fields oscillating at right angles to each other. They are not deflected by electric or magnetic field. They can show interference or diffraction, are transverse waves, may be polarized and need no medium of propagation.

Ans.2.(c)

Exp. Zacharias Janssen was a Dutch spectacle-maker from Middelburg associated with the invention of the first Optical telescope. He is also credited for inventing the first truly compound microscope.

Ans.3.(b)

Exp. Super cooling is the process of chilling a liquid below its freezing point, without it becoming solid.

Ans.4.(b)

Exp. The sextant is an instrument used to measure angles. Mainly used at sea, the tool is so named because its arc is one sixth of a circle – 60 degrees.

Ans.5.(d)

Exp. Since, the projectile is fired at an angle, its velocity can be split into two components – horizontal(Vx) and vertical(Vy).

Vx=v∗cosϕ

Vy=v∗sinϕ

Gravity is the only force acting on it. And it is acting downwards,so only the vertical component of the velocity is affected by this and the horizontal component remains constant.

Ans.6.(d)

Exp. Ultrasonic waves cannot be polarised,ultrasonic wave is an example of sound

wave and it cannot be polarised.

Ans.7.(c)

Exp. The color of a star which varies from bluish white and yellow to orange and red is primarily due to its composition and effective temperature.

Ans.8.(b)

Exp. An anemometer is a device that is used to measure wind speed. There are many different types of anemometers suited for different environments.

Ans.9.(b)

Exp. Centripetal force is a real force that counteracts the centrifugal force and prevents the object from “flying out,” keeping it moving instead with a uniform speed along a circular path.

Ans.10.(d)

Exp. The escape velocity of earth is 11.2 km/sec.
