(i) Write down any three common properties of Longitudinal and Transverse waves.

Ans:   The common properties of Longitudinal and Transverse waves are:
            1.         Both the waves are mechanical waves.
            2.         Both the waves transport energy.
            3.         In both the waves, the particles oscillate about their mean positions.
            4.         Both the waves satisfy the equation v=fλ

(ix) Write down any three properties of electric field lines.

Ans.    Properties of Electric Field Lines:
         1.  The field lines are imaginary lines around a field charge with an arrow head indicating the direction of the force.
           2.  Field lines are always directed from positive charge towards negative charge.
           3.  The spacing between the field lines shows the strength of the electric field.

(x) Name any three uses of oscilloscope.

(xi) Name two factors, which can enhance the thermionic emission and also define thermionic emission.

Ans.    Thermionic Emission: When metals are heated, electrons are emitted from the surface of the metals. The process of emission of electrons from the surfaces of hot metals is called thermionic emission.

           The rate of thermionic emission depends upon the nature of the metal, its temperature, and the surface area of the metal. Increasing the temperature and surface area of the cathode, the rate of thermionic emission is increased.


(xii) What are radio Isotopes? Give two examples.

(xiii) How much of 1 gram sample of pure radioactive matter would be left undecayed after four half lives.

(xiv) The 14 – C : 12 – C ratio in the fossil bone is found to be 1/4 th that of the ratio in the bone of living animal. The half life of 14 – C is 5730 years. What is the approximate age of the fossil?

(xv) Can current flow in a circuit without a potential difference?
