5.Herapathite (iodo sulphate of quinine) is used in the production of _____

a) Achromatic prism

b) Polaroid

c) Biprism

d) Solar cell

Ans: b) Polaroid

Explanation –  Herapathite, or iodoquinine sulfate, is a chemical compound whose crystals are dichroic and thus can be used for polarizing light. …(refer for same https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herapat…) first line..

6.A diffraction pattern is obtained by making blue light incident on a narrow slit . If blue light is replaced by red light, then the diffraction bands _______

a) Disappear

b) Become broader

c) Become narrower

d) Remain same

Ans:- b) becomes broader

7.Two droplets coalesce in a single drop. In this process _______

a) Energy is liberated

b) Energy is absorbed

c) Energy does not change

d) Some mass is converted into energy

Ans : – a) Energy is liberated

Explanation. In textbook at end of chapter 6th  in summary section 9th point there is clearly mentioned that.. If number of liquid droplets are merged to form a single drop then its surface area decreases, surface energy decreases, temperature of liquid increases and energy is liberated… hope u got your answer…

8.In hydrogen atom, electron jumps from the 3rd orbit to 1st orbit. The change in angular momentum is ______________

a) 1.05 * 10-34 Js

b) 2.11 * 10-34 Js

c) 3.16 * 10-34 Js

d) 4.22 * 10-34 Js

Ans : b) 2.11 * 10-34 Js

Explanation .. as for nth orbit , angular momentum = nh/2π so for 1st orbit it will be = (1)h/2π—- n value is 1 for 3rd orbit it will be =(3)h/2π. So change ofangular momentum from 3rd orbit to 1st orbit will be = [(3h/2π)-(h/2π)] =2h/2π =h/π =[(6.63 * 10-34 )/3.142] = 2.11 * 10-34 Js

9.A fixed volume of iron is drawn into wire of length ‘L’ the extension ‘x’ produced in the wire by a constant force ‘F’ is proportional to _____________

a) 1/L2

b) 1/L

c) L2

d) L

Ans : c) L2

Explanation:  Y= FL/Al


l=FL2/Y (AL)

l=F L2/YV… as volume=A*L as elongation x could be= l

x=F L2/VY…so by all constants we get F, V, Y x directly to L2

so answer c is correct…

10.Two tuning forks have frequencies 450Hz and 454hz resp. on sounding these forks together, the time interval between two successive maximum intensities will be _____

a) 1\4s

b) 1/2s

c) 1s

d) 4s

Ans: a) 1/4s

Explanation u know that theory says that the time interval between two successive maxima of sound is always = [1/(n1-n2)] =[1/(454-450)] =1/4s

Q.3. Define.

a) Threshold Frequency-

The Minimum frequency of incident radiation for which photo-electrons are emitted from photo-sensitive material is called threshold frequency.

b) Photo-Electric Work Function-

The Minimum energy required to free the electron from an atom of a given surface is called as photo-electric work function.

Q4. Distinguish Between Step-Up and Step-Down Transformer?


Step-Up Transformer

  1. In Step-Up Transformer Input Voltage is low while while the Output Voltage is high.
  2. Step-Up Transformer’s Primary windings are made up of thick insulated copper wire.
  3. Step-up transformer is used to increase the output voltage.
  4. Rating of output voltage is 10000 volts.
  5. Applications of Step-up tansformer are X-ray machines, microwaves.

Step-down Transformer

  1. In step-down transformer Output voltage is low while the input voltage is high.
  2. Step-down Transformer’s Secondary windings are made up of thick insulated copper wire.
  3. Step-down transformer is used to reduce the output voltage.

Q5. Write a note on Sky Wave Propagation?

Ans. When antenna transmits the radio-waves through sky, to reach the receiving antenna after reflection in the ionosphere region this wave propagation is called as sky wake propagation.

In Sky wave propagation, the maximum angle made by transmitted radio waves with horizontal, above which the radio waves are no longer reflected back by ionosphere is called angle of radiation.

Q6.Obtain the relation between the magnitude of linear acceleration and angular acceleration in circular motion?.


Q7. Deduce Boyle’s Law using the expression for pressure exerted by the gas.

Q8. State any two postulate’s of Bohr’s Theory of Hydrogen Atom?

Ans. i) The electron in a hydrogen atom revolves in circular orbit around the nucleus which is at te centre of orbit.

ii) The electron revolves around the nucleus in orbits of which electron’s angular momentum in the orbit is quantized.

Q9. State the factors on which resolving power of microscope depends. How it can be increased?

Ans Resolving power of a micro- scope depends on mode of illumination in which-

(a) wavelength of light (λ)

(b) the semi-vertical angle of the cone of light from the object to the objective i.e Numerical Aperture(NA).

And to increase the resolving power of microscope you have to increase its numerical aperture(NA) and decrease the wavelength(λ) of light being illuminated.
