Test - Physics - 1 - Question 9

Energy is continuously created in the sun due to –

Detailed Solution for Test - Physics - 1 - Question 9

The central mass of the sun becomes increasingly hot and dense. eventually initiating thermonuclear fusion in its core. It is thought that almost all other stars form by this process. nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei join together, or "fuse", to form a single heavier nucleus. During this process, matter is not conserved because some of the mass of the fusing nuclei is converted to energy which is released.

Test - Physics - 1 - Question 10

When the barometer reading dips suddenly, it is an indication of –

Detailed Solution for Test - Physics - 1 - Question 10

Sudden and great fluctuations of the barometer at any time of the year indicate unsettled weather for several days, perhaps a fortnight. If the barometer falls two or threetenths of an inch in four hours, one can expect a gale of wind. If the surface of the mercury in the cistern of the barometer vibrates upon the approach of a storm, the gale can be expected to be severe.

Good conductor of electricity is –

Detailed Solution for Test - Physics - 1 - Question 11

Graphite has a tendency to behave very much like a metal because the carbon molecules arrange themselves into a lattice structure. The crystal lattice is the same orientation that metal forms, and it allows the free-movement of electrons, making it a good electrical conductor. The characteristics possesses by the graphite for conduction is far better than the dry air paper and kerosene and that's what makes it a good conductor.

Which one of the following instruments is used to study dispersion of light?

Detailed Solution for Test - Physics - 1 - Question 14

Dispersion occurs when different frequencies of light have different phase velocities, due either to material properties (material dispersion) or to the geometry of an optical waveguide (waveguide dispersion). A spectrometer (spectro-photometer, spectrograph or spectroscope) is an instrument used to measure properties alight over a specific portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, typically used in spectroscopic analysis to identify materials.

Test - Physics - 1 - Question 15

A falling drop of rain water ac-quires the spherical shape due to –

Detailed Solution for Test - Physics - 1 - Question 15

Raindrops start out as round high in the atmosphere as water collects on dust and smoke particles in clouds. But as raindrops fall, they lose their rounded shape. A raindrop falling through the atmosphere forms as a roughly spherical structure due to the surface tension of water. This surface tension is the "skin" of a body of water that makes the molecules stick together. The cause is the weak hydrogen bonds that occur between water molecules.
