(a) Fall to the floor

(b) Remain stationary

(c) Continue to follow the motion of the satellite

(d) Move tangentially away

Q10. “Curie” is the unit of –

## Solution

Ans.1.(d)

Exp. Acceleration due to gravity on a planet decreases with increase in altitude from surface of the planet.

Ans.2.(b)

Exp. An anemometer is a device used for measuring the speed of wind.

Ans.3.(a)

Exp. Rakesh Sharma was the first Indian to travel in Space. He was born on 13th January 1949 in Punjab, India. He flew to the Salyut 7 Space Station.

Ans.4.(b)

Exp. According to the equation of continuity Av = constant. Where A =cross-sectional area and v=velocity with which the fluid flows. It means that if any liquid is flowing in streamline flow in a pipe of non-uniform cross-section area, then rate of flow of liquid across any cross-section remains constant.

Ans.5.(c)

Exp. A body which is in equilibrium is either moving at constant velocity in a straight line, or it is not moving.

Ans.6.(c)

Exp. The viscosity of an ideal ﬂuid is Zero.

Ans.7.(c)

Exp. A parachute descends slowly because it has a larger surfaace area and air resistance is more.

Ans.8.(b)

Exp. Concave mirror is used as Shaving mirror.

Ans.9.(c)

Exp. The spoon dropped by an astronaut in a satellite will continue to follow the motion of the satellite.

Ans.10.(a)

Exp. The Curie (symbol Ci) is a non-SI unit of radioactivity.
