Section B


(i) The sun is one hundred and fifty million kilometers away from the earth. Write this:
a.      As an ordinary whole number b. In scientific notation

Excluded from Syllabus for Annual Exam 2021

(ii)  Your hair grows at the rate of 1 mm per day. Find their growth rate in nms-1.

(iii)  Can a body moving at a constant speed have an acceleration?

Ans:   Yes, when a body is moving with constant speed, it can have acceleration if its direction is changing.
For example, if the body is moving along a circle with constant speed, it will have acceleration due to the change of direction at every instant.

(iv)  Find the retardation produced when a car moving at a velocity of 30 ms-1 slows down uniformly to 15 ms-1 in 5s.

(v)  Why is it dangerous to travel on the roof of a bus?

Ans.  When a bus suddenly takes a turn, stops, or suddenly speeds up, the passengers on the roof of the bus cannot maintain their balance due to inertia. Therefore, they may fall on either side and may get hurt.

(vi)  A force acting on a body of mass 5kg produces an acceleration of 10 ms-2. What acceleration will the same force produce in a body of mass 8kg?

(vii)  In a right angled triangle length of base is 14 cm and its perpendicular is 3 cm. Find: a. Length of hypotenuse b.  sinθ    c.  cosθ

Excluded from Syllabus for Annual Exam 2021

(viii)  Differentiate between torque and couple.

Ans.    Torque:
The turning effect of a force is called torque or moment of the force. The torque of a force is equal to the product of force and moment arm of the force.
A couple is formed by two parallel forces of the same magnitude but acting in opposite directions along different lines of action.

(xi)  Why does the value of ‘g’ vary from place to place?

Ans.   The value of ‘g’ depends on the distance of a body from the centre of the earth. As the earth is not a perfect sphere and its radius is not the same everywhere, therefore, the value of ‘g’ is different at different places.

(x)  Which form of energy is most preferred and why?

(xi)  What is meant by the term power? Write its SI unit.

(xii)  A barge, 40 m long and 8 meters broad whose sides are vertical, floats partially loaded in water. If 125000 N of cargo is added, how many meters will it sink?

(xiii)  Explain how does a submarine move up the water surface and down into water?

Ans:  Submarines have a system of tanks that can be filled with water and can be emptied from the seawater when required. When the tanks are filled with water, the weight of the submarine becomes greater than upthrust. So, it goes underwater. To let it come up to the surface, the tanks are emptied from seawater.

(xiv)  Define latent heat of vaporization.

Attempt any TWO questions. All questions carry equal marks.

Q3.  a.  Prove graphically S = vit+½ at2 (04)

Q3.  b.  Write a note on rolling friction. (04)

Ans.  When a body rolls over a surface, the friction produced is called rolling friction. When a wheel is pushed to move, the force of friction between the wheel and the ground at the point of contact provides the reaction force, which acts opposite to the direction of the applied force. As the body rolls without interlocking of the ups and downs between the two surfaces, therefore the rolling friction is extremely small than the sliding friction. The rolling friction is about 100 times less than sliding friction.

Q3.  c.  A body has a weight of 20 N. How much force is required to move it vertically upwards with an acceleration of 2 ms-2? (02)

Q4.  a. Derive formula for speed of artificial satellite. (05)

Q4.  b. Write detailed note on work. (05)

Work is said to be done when a force acts on a body and moves it through some distance in the direction of the force. Work is therefore equal to the product of force and distance. It is given by
Work done = Force x displacement
W = FS

Sometimes the force makes an angle ‘θ’ with the direction of motion, then the work done is given by:
                                                                        W = (F Cosθ) S
Where F Cosθ is the components of force along which the body moves and covers the distance S.

The SI unit of work is ‘Joule’. It is defined as the work done when a force of one Newton acts on a body and moves it through a distance of one meter in the direction of the force. 

Q5.  a. Derive formula for pressure in any liquid. (04)

Ans. Consider a surface of area A in a liquid at a depth ‘h’ as shown by the shaded region in the figure. The length of the cylinder of liquid over this surface will be h. The force acting on this surface will be the weight w of the liquid above this surface. If ρ is the density of the liquid and m is the mass of liquid above the surface, then
Mass of the liquid cylinder m = volume x density
= (A x h) x ρ
Force acting on area A F = w = mg
F = A h ρ g
As Pressure P = F / A
P = A h ρ g / A
Therefore, Liquid pressure at depth h = P = ρ g h

The above formula gives the pressure at a depth h in a liquid of density ρ. It shows that the pressure in a liquid increase with depth.

Q5.  b. What is meant by specific heat capacity? Explain. (04)

Ans.  How much heat a body can absorb depends on many factors. Here we define a quantity called heat capacity of a body as “Heat capacity of a body is the quantity of thermal energy absorbed by it for one kelvin (1 K) increase in its temperature”.

Thus, if the temperature of a body increases through DT on adding DQ amount of heat, then its heat capacity will be ∆Q/∆T. Putting the value of DQ, we get    
Heat capacity =   ∆Q/∆T =   mc∆T / ∆T
Heat capacity = mc           
The above equation shows that the heat capacity of a body is equal to the product of its mass and its specific heat capacity. For example, the heat capacity of 5 kg of water is (5 kg x 4200 Jkg-1K-1= 21000 JK). That is 5kg of water needs 21000 joules of heat for every 1 K rise in its temperature. Thus, the larger is the quantity of a substance, the larger will be its heat capacity. 

Q5.  c.  Convert 100 °F temperature into Celsius scale. (02)
