Class 10 Physics 2019 (Local) Paper

Section A

Q1. MCQs


(i) Distinguish between longitudinal and transverse waves with suitable examples.

(ii) What is the difference between loudness and intensity of sound? Derive a relationship between these two.

(iii) What is meant by the principle focus of (A) convex lens (B) a concave lens? Illustrate your answer with ray diagrams.

(iv) Show that potential difference can be described as energy transferred per unit charge between the two points.

(v) Explain the energy dissipation in resistance. What is Joule’s law?

(vi) State and explain the rule by which the direction of the lines of force of the magnetic field around a current-carrying conductor can be determined.

Ans:   The required rule is stated below:
            Grasp a wire with your right hand such that your thumb is pointed in the direction of current. Then curling fingers of your hand will point in the direction of the magnetic field.”

Explanation:  The above rule is used to find the direction of magnetic field around a current-carrying conductor. But we should know the direction of current in the conductor.

(vii) Write down some benefits of using digital electronics over analogue electronics.

Ans.    Digital devices have the following benefits over analog devices:

  • Digital devices are more reliable, flexible, and portable as compared to analogue devices.
  • Digital signals are easier to transmit and are more secure than analogue signals.
  • Digital circuits are less affected by noise.
  • Digital systems interface well with computers and are easy to control with software.
  • Information storage in digital form is easy.   

(viii) Name different information storage devices and describe their uses.

Excluded from Syllabus

(ix) Write Alpha decay process for Pa. Identify the parent and daughter nuclei in this decay.

(x) Find the time period (Te and Tm) of a pendulum of 1 m length, placed on earth and moon.

(xi) What are units of loudness? Why do we use a logarithmic scale to describe the range of the sound intensities we hear?

Ans:   The unit of loudness is bel, it is a very large unit of the intensity level of a sound. Generally, a smaller unit called decibel is used. Decibel is abbreviated as (dB) and 1 bel is equal to 10 dB.

We use a logarithmic scale to describe the range of the sound intensities because the range is so wide.

(xii) When an object is placed beyond 2F in front of a converging lens, then at what position its image is formed? Whether the image is real and inverted or virtual and erect, magnified or diminished. Draw a ray diagram to show its image formation.

(xiii) An electric field rod attracts pieces of paper. After a while these pieces fly away. Why?

Ans:   Initially due to electrostatic induction the pieces of paper get charged and attracted by the electric field rod but after some time the temporarily charged pieces of paper get neutralized due to which these pieces fly away.

(xiv) By applying a potential difference of 10 V across a conductor, a current of 1.5 A passes through it. How much energy would be obtained from the current in 2 minutes?

(xv) Demonstrate by an experiment that a magnetic field is produced around a straight current-carrying conductor.

Ans.    Take a straight conductor wire and pass it vertically through a cardboard. Now connect the two ends of the conductor wire with the terminals of the battery so that current flows through the circuit in the clockwise direction. The lines of force of the magnetic field produced around the wire would be in the form of concentric circles. If we place a compass needle at different points in the region of magnetic field, it will align along the direction of magnetic field. Also if we sprinkle some iron filings on the cardboard around the wire, they will align themselves in concentric circles in the clockwise direction.

(xiii) How does electrostatic induction differ from charging by friction?

Ans.    In electrostatic induction a neutral object is charged with the help of a charged object whereas in charging by friction both the objects being charged are neutral.
