Solution

Ans.1.(a)

Exp. A ball rolling along the ground gradually slows down and finally comes to rest is due to friction.

Ans.2.(b)

Exp. The angle between the Normal and the incident ray is called the angle of incidence.

Ans.3.(d)

Exp. James Dewar was inventor of the thermos flask.

Ans.4.(a)

Exp. friction was caused due to the roughness of the two surfaces in contact with each other.

Ans.5.(d)

Exp. During sunrise and sunset, the rays have to travel a larger part of the atmosphere because they are very close to the horizon. Therefore, light other than red is mostly scattered away. Most of the red light, which is the least scattered, enters our eyes. Hence, the sun and the sky appear red.

Ans.Exp.Sol. At hill stations, the boiling point of water will be less than that at sea level due to change in atmospheric pressure.

Ans.7.(b)

Exp. The component used for tuning a radio is basically a variable capacitor.

Ans.8.(b)

Exp. 0°K is equivalent to – 273°C.

Ans.9.(b)

Exp. Postage Meter was invented by Arthur Pitney.

Ans.10.(b)

Exp. Igor Sikorsky, a Russian is recognized as father of modern helicopters.
