Section-A

Answer 1.

(i) (b) for measuring the inner diameter

 Explanation :

Inside jaws are used to measure the internal diameter of a hollow cylinder or pipe.

(ii) (c) x / n

 Explanation :

1 MSD = x cm

n VSD = (n – 1) MSD

∴ 1 VSD = ((n-1)/2) MSD

∴ L.C. = 1 MSD – 1 VSD

= 1 MSD –((n-1)/2) MSD

= n-(n-1)/n MSD

=1/n MSD

 1 MSD = x cm

L. C. = x/n cm

(iii) (b) 2 R

 Explanation :

Total time of motion on circular track
= 2 × 60 + 20 = 140 s.
Time period of revolution = 40 s. Therefore displacement in time = (3 × 40 = 120 s) = zero as athlete will
be reaching at the starting point.

(iv) (d) 1 m/s2
 Explanation :
Here, u = 72 km/h = 20 m/s a = (v2-u2)/2s =(0-(20)2)/2 x 200 = – 1 m/s Retardation = - a = 1 m/s2

(v) (d) mv

 Explanation :

Use momentum = mass × linear velocity shift to numerical section.

(vi) (c) impulse of force

 Explanation :

Since, impulse is calculated as the product of force and time the unit Ns is defining the quantity impulse.

(vii) (c) Hydraulic turbine

 Explanation :

Hydraulic turbine does not follow the principle of a hydraulic machine. It works on the speed of flow of
water.

(viii) (a) Vertically above its centre of gravity

 Explanation :

For stable equilibrium the centre of buoyancy should be vertically above its centre of gravity so that it does not sink.

(ix) (d) Photosynthetic plants

 Explanation :

The producers (photosynthetic plants) synthesize organic substances by the process of photosynthesis (i.e., they bind the simple compounds with the help of solar energy into the complex organic substances).

(x) (c) Hope’s experiment

 Explanation :

In 1805, the scientist T.C. Hope derived a simple arrangement, known as Hope’s apparatus for
demonstrating the anomalous expansion of water.

(xi) (c) 60°

 Explanation :

The situation is shown in figure.

(xii) (b) 30 cm

 Explanation :

Here, f = – 20 cm, m = – 2 ( image is real)

m = − v /u , v = – mu = 2u

Using, 1/u+1/v=1/f

we get, =1/u+1/2u=-1/20

or 3/2u=-1/20 or u = – 30 cm

(xiii) (b) 3.4 km

 Explanation :

Distance of thunder cloud
= Speed of sound × time
= 340 × 10
= 3400 m = 3.4 km

(xiv) (b) 4950 C

 Explanation :

Current =Electric charge/Time

0.55=Electric charge/[150×60] sec

Electric charge = 0.55 × 9000

= 4950 C

(xv) (b) Steel

 Explanation :

Preferred material for electromagnet that can be demagnetised easily alloy of aluminium, nickel and
cobalt give a substance called AlNiCo which has easy tempering properties and hence gets easily
demagnetised.

Answer 2.

  • (i) (a) Given : Size of particle = 5.2 μ Since 1 μ = 10–6 m ∴ Size of particle = 5.2 × 10–6 m.
  • (b) The frequency of oscillation of a second’s pendulum is 0.5 s–1. No, it does not depend on the amplitude of oscillation.

  • Also, Time period = 1/Frequency=1/4=0.25s.
  • (iii) Distance = 3 × Circumference of field
  • Given : r = 7 m
  • ∴ Distance = 3 × 2πr
  • = 3 × 2 ×22 x 7/7=132m.
  • Displacement = 0, because initial and final position of the athlete are the same.
  • (iv) When a carpet is hit with a stick, it sets the carpet in motion, whereas the dust particles embedded in it remain in the initial position of rest due to inertia. Thus, the dust particles are removed from the carpet.
  • (v) Given : Weight of body in air, W = 75.0 g
  • Weight of body in water, W1 = 70.5 g
  • Weight of body in liquid, W2 = 66.0 g
  • R.D. = (W-W2)/(W-W1)
  • ∴ Relative density of the liquid =(75 66) /(75-70.5)=9/4.5=2.
  • (vi) Both, the stone and the pencil will reach the ground simultaneously in vacuum since acceleration due to gravity is same on both.
  • (vii) Iron nail has a less area and volume, so it readily sinks into water, but in case of a ship, it has a large amount of void space filled with air which reduces the average density of the ship, making it much lighter. So it floats in water.

Answer 3.

  • (i) (a) When the object is placed between pole and principal focus of the concave mirror.

  • (b) Also, T = 1/f=1/480=0.00208 s.
  • (iv) (a) The potential difference between two points is said to be 1 volt (1V) if 1 joule of work is done in moving 1 coulomb of electric charge from one point to the other.
  • (b) A compass needle gets deflected when brought near a bar magnet because the bar magnet exerts a magnetic force on the compass needle which is itself a tiny pivoted magnet capable of moving in a horizontal plane.
  • (v) Given : Current, I = 0.25 A, Charge, Q = ?, Time, t = 10 minute = 10 × 60 s = 600 s
  • I = Q/l
  • 0.25= Q/600
  • ⇒ Q = 0.25 × 600
  • or Q = 150 C
  • Thus, the amount of electric charge that flows through the circuit is 150 C.

Answer 4.

(i) 

Contact force Non-contact force
1. The force caused between two bodies due to actual physical contact is called contact force. The force caused between two bodies separated by a distance is called as non-contact force.

  • s2 = ut + 1 / 2 at2
  • = 0 × 5 +1/2 x 5 x (5)2=62.5m
  • (c) Distance travelled in 5th second = Distance travelled in 5 s – Distance travelled in 4 s
  • = s2 – s1
  • = (62.5 – 40) m = 22.5 m
  • (iii) Given : u = 50 m/s, g = – 10 m/s2,v = 0
