ANSWERS

**Ans.1.(c)**

**Exp.** Hyetometer is the instrument used to measure rainfall.

**Ans.2.(a)**

**Exp.** Max Planck was a German theoretical physicist, considered to be the initial founder of quantum theory, and one of the most important physicists of the 20th Century.

**Ans.3.(c)**

**Exp.** In physics, spin is the velocity of rotation of something around a particular axis.

**Ans.4.(b)**

**Exp.**If an object, on a free fall from a certain height, reaches the ground in 1 second, its velocity on the impact with the ground 9.8 m/s.

**Ans.5.(a)**

**Exp.** The angle between centripetal acceleration and tangential acceleration is 90°.

**Ans.6.(c)**

**Exp.** A rectifier is an electrical device composed of one or more diodes that converts alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC).

**Ans.7.(d)**

**Exp.** The Nobel Prize in Physics 1930 was awarded to Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman “for his work on the scattering of light and for the discovery of the effect named after him.

**Ans.8.(b)**

**Exp.** The Siemens (symbol S) is the derived unit of electric conductance.

**Ans.9.(c)**

**Exp.** Universal Standard time, as originally proposed by Scottish-Canadian Sir Sandford Fleming in 1879, divided the world into twenty-four time zones, each one covering 15 degrees of longitude.

**Ans.10.(d)**

**Exp**. Kirchhoff’s First Law states that the total current entering a junction is equal to the total current leaving the junction. In other words, the algebraic sum of currents at a junction is zero.
