**MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS I**

**Q.1. A bimetallic strip is made of aluminium and steel (α _{Al} >α_{steel}). On heating, the strip will**(d)

(a) Remain straight.

(b) Get twisted.

(c) Will bend with aluminium on concave side.

(d) Will bend with steel on concave side.

Ans.

On heating, the metallic strip with higher coefficient of linear expansion (∝_{A}_{l}) will expand more.

According to the question, ∝_{AI} > ∝_{steel}, so aluminum will expand more. So, it should have larger radius of curvature. Hence, aluminium will be on convex side. The metal of smaller ∝ (i.e., steel) bends on inner side, i.e., concave side.

**Q.2. A uniform metallic rod rotates about its perpendicular bisector with constant angular speed. If it is heated uniformly to raise its temperature slightly(a) Its speed of rotation increases.(b) Its speed of rotation decreases.(c) Its speed of rotation remains same.(d) Its speed increases because its moment of inertia increases.Ans.** (b)

When the rod is heated uniformly to raise its temperature slightly, it expands. So, moment of inertia of the rod will increase.

Moment of inertia of a uniform rod about its perpendicular bisector

Moment of inertia of a uniform rod about its perpendicular bisector,

ΔT = Increase in the temperature of the rod.

∴ Changed length, L' = L(1 + αΔT) ...(i)

∴ New moment of inertia of rod,

[Using (i)]

∴ I' = I[ 1 + 2αΔT ] (∵ α^{2}(ΔT)^{2} is very small)

If the temperature increases, moment of inertia will increase.

No external torque is acting on the system, so angular momentum should be conserved.

L = Angular momentum = Iω = constant

⇒ I'ω' = Iω

where, I = initial M.I. of rod before heating

ω = Initial angular velocity

I' = Final M.I. after heating

ω' = Final angular velocity after heating

Due to expansion of the rod I' > I.

⇒

⇒ ω' < ω

So, angular velocity (speed of rotation) decreases.**Q.3. The graph between two temperature scales A and B is shown in Figure. Between upper fixed point and lower fixed point there are 150 equal division on scale A and 100 on scale B.The relationship for conversion between the two scales is given by**

**(a) (b) (c) (d) Ans. **(b)

It is clear from graph in t

Hence formula

Or

(a) Buoyancy will be less in water at 0°C than that in water at 4°C.

(b) Buoyancy will be more in water at 0°C than that in water at 4°C.

(c) Buoyancy in water at 0°C will be same as that in water at 4°C.

(d) Buoyancy may be more or less in water at 4°C depending on the radius of the sphere.

Ans.

Liquids generally increase in volume with increasing temperature but in case of water, it expands on heating if its temperature is greater than 4°C. The density of water reaches a maximum value of 1.000 g/cm

This behaviour of water in the range from 0°C to 4°C is called anomalous expansion.

Let volume of the sphere be V and ρ be its density, then we can write buoyant force at 0°C.

(ρ

Buoyancy at 4°C

⇒

⇒

Hence, buoyancy will be less in water at 0°C than that in water at 4°C.

(a) Increases as its effective length increases even though its centre of mass still remains at the centre of the bob.

(b) Decreases as its effective length increases even though its centre of mass still remains at the centre of the bob.

(c) Increases as its effective length increases due to shifting of centre of mass below the centre of the bob.

(d) Decreases as its effective length remains same but the centre of mass shifts above the centre of the bob.

Ans.

A pendulum clock keeps proper time at temperature θ

Let T = at temperature θ_{0} and

at temperature θ.

Therefore change (loss or gain) in time per unit time lapsed is

Fractional change in time period

So, as the temperature increases, length of pendulum increases and hence time period of pendulum increases. Due to increment in its time period, a pendulum clock becomes slow in summer and will lose time.**Q.6. Heat is associated with(a) Kinetic energy of random motion of molecules.(b) Kinetic energy of orderly motion of molecules.(c) Total kinetic energy of random and orderly motion of molecules.(d) Kinetic energy of random motion in some cases and kinetic energy of orderly motion in other.Ans.** (a)

We know that as the temperature increases vibration of molecules about their mean position increases. Hence the Kinetic energy associated with random motion of molecule increases.

(a) 2π R α ∆T

(b) π R

(c) 4π R

(d) 4π R

Ans.

Coefficient of linear expansion is α

Coefficient of cubical expansion = 3α = γ

verifies option (d).

(a) Plate will cool fastest and cube the slowest

(b) Sphere will cool fastest and cube the slowest

(c) Plate will cool fastest and sphere the slowest

(d) Cube will cool fastest and plate the slowest

Ans.

loss of heat on cooling is directly proportional to the following factors

(i) temperature difference between body and surrounding

(ii) surface area exposed to surrounding

(iii) material of object

We know that surface area of sphere is minimum and of circular plate is maximum. So sphere cool slowest and circular plate fastest.

**MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS II**

**Q.9. Mark the correct options:(a) A system X is in thermal equilibrium with Y but not with Z. System Y and Z may be in thermal equilibrium with each other.(b) A system X is in thermal equilibrium with Y but not with Z. Systems Y and Z are not in thermal equilibrium with each other.(c) A system X is neither in thermal equilibrium with Y nor with Z. The systems Y and Z must be in thermal equilibrium with each other.(d) A system X is neither in thermal equilibrium with Y nor with Z. The system Y and Z may be in thermal equilibrium with each other.Ans. **(b, d)

Two bodies are said to be in thermal equilibrium with each other, when no heat flows from one body to the other. That is when both the bodies are at the same temperature.

According to the problem,

(b) If two systems X and Y are in thermal equilibrium, i.e., T

i.e., T

then clearly, T

Hence, y and z are not in thermal equilibrium.

(d) If X is not in thermal equilibrium with Y, i.e, T

Then we cannot say about equilibrium of Y and Z, they may or may not be in equilibrium.

(a) Both size gulab jamuns will get heated in the same time.

(b) Smaller gulab jamuns are heated before bigger ones.

(c) Smaller pizzas are heated before bigger ones.

(d) Bigger pizzas are heated before smaller ones.

Ans.

Between these four which has the least surface area will be heated first because of less heat radiation. So, smaller gulab jamuns are having least surface area, hence they will be heated first.

Similarly, smaller pizzas are heated before bigger ones because they are of small surface areas.

**Which of the following is correct?(a) The region AB represents ice and water in thermal equilibrium.(b) At B water starts boiling.(c) At C all the water gets converted into steam.(d) C to D represents water and steam in equilibrium at boiling point.Ans.** (a, d)

During phase change process, temperature of the system remains constant.

(a) In region AB, a phase change takes place, heat is supplied and ice melts but temperature of the system is 0°C. it remains constant during process. The heat supplied is used to break bonding between molecules.

(b) In region CD, again a phase change takes place from a liquid to a vapour state during which temperature remains constant. It shows water and steam are in equilibrium at boiling point.

(a) The rate of cooling is constant till milk attains the temperature of the surrounding.

(b) The temperature of milk falls off exponentially with time .

(c) While cooling, there is a flow of heat from milk to the surrounding as well as from surrounding to the milk but the net flow of heat is from milk to the surrounding and that is why it cools.

(d) All three phenomenon, conduction, convection and radiation are responsible for the loss of heat from milk to the surroundings.

Ans.

**VERY SHORT ANSWER TYPE QUESTIONS**

**Q.1. Is the bulb of a thermometer made of diathermic or adiabatic wall?****Ans. **The bulb of a thermometer is made up of diathermic wall because diathermic walls allow exchange of heat energy between two systems but adiabatic walls do not. So it receives heat from the body to measure the temperature of body.**Q.2. A student records the initial length l, change in temperature ∆T and change in length ∆l of a rod as follows:**

S.No. | l(m) | ΔT(C) | Δl(m) |

1. | 2 | 10 | 4 x 10^{-4} |

2. | 1 | 10 | 4 x 10^{-4} |

3. | 2 | 20 | 2 x 10^{-4} |

4. | 3 | 10 | 6 x 10^{-4} |

**If the first observation is correct, what can you say about observations 2, 3 and 4.****Ans. **If the first observation is correct, hence from the 1st observation we get the coefficient of linear expansion

For 2nd observation, Δl = αlΔT

= 2 x 10^{-5} x 1 x 10

= 2 x 10^{-4} m ≠ 4 x 10^{-4} m

which is incorrect.

For 3rd observation, Δl = αlΔT

= 2 x 10^{-5} x 2 x 20

= 8 x 10^{-4} m ≠ 2 x 10^{-4} m

which is incorrect.

For 4th observation, ∆l = ∝l∆T

= 2 x 10^{-5} x 3 x 10 = 6 x 10^{-4} m [i.e., observed value is correct] **Q.3. Why does a metal bar appear hotter than a wooden bar at the same temperature? Equivalently it also appears cooler than wooden bar if they are both colder than room temperature.Ans. **Kirchhoffs Law:

The ratio of emissive power to absorptive power is same for all surfaces at the same temperature and is equal to the emissive power of a perfectly black body at that temperature.

Thus if a

But for a perfectly black body a

If emissive and absorptive powers are considered for a particular wavelength λ,

Now since (E

This in turn implies that a good absorber is a good emitter (or radiator).

The conductivities of metals are very high compared to wood. Due to difference in conductivity, if one touch the hot metal with a finger, heat from the surrounding flows faster to the finger from metals and so one feels the heat.

Similarly, when one touches a cold metal the heat from the finger flows away to the surroundings faster. So we can say that a good radiator can be a good absorber.

Ans.

Constant for all scales

Let T be the value of temperature having same value of Celsius and Fahrenheit scale, i.e. F = C = T

⇒

⇒mT = -40°C = -40°F

Ans.

So copper base supply quick and larger heat from burner to food in utensil.

**SHORT ANSWER TYPE QUESTIONS**

**Q.1. Find out the increase in moment of inertia I of a uniform rod (coefficient of linear expansion α) about its perpendicular bisector when its temperature is slightly increased by ∆T.****Ans. **Moment of inertia of a uniform rod of mass M and length l about its perpendicular bisector

Increase in length of the rod when temperature is increased by Δt, is given by

L' = L(1 + αΔT)

∴ New moment of inertia of the rod

∴ As change in length Δl is very small, therefore neglecting (Δl)^{2}

(∵ α^{2}(ΔT)^{2} is very small) we get

I' = I[1 + 2αΔT]

∴ Increase in moment of inertia

= I' - I = I[1 + 2αΔT] - I = 2αIΔT**Q.2. During summers in India, one of the common practice to keep cool is to make ice balls of crushed ice, dip it in flavoured sugar syrup and sip it. For this a stick is inserted into crushed ice and is squeezed in the palm to make it into the ball. Equivalently in winter, in those areas where it snows, people make snow balls and throw around. Explain the formation of ball out of crushed ice or snow in the light of P–T diagram of water.Ans.** Refer to the P.T diagram of water and double headed arrow. Increasing pressure at 0°C and 1 atm takes ice into liquid state and decreasing pressure in liquid state at 0°C and 1 atm takes water to ice state.

When crushed ice is squeezed, some of it melts, filling up gap between ice flakes. Upon releasing pressure, this water freezes binding all ice flakes making the ball more stable.**Q.3. 100 g of water is supercooled to –10°C. At this point, due to some disturbance mechanised or otherwise some of it suddenly freezes to ice. What will be the temperature of the resultant mixture and how much mass would freeze?[S _{w} = 1cal/g/°C and L^{w}_{fusion} = 80cal/g]Ans. **According to the problem, mass of water (m) = 100 g

Change in temperature ΔT = 0 - (-10) = 10°C

Specific heat of water(S

Latent heat of fusion of water L

Amount of heat required to change the temperature of 100 g of water at -10°C to 0°C,

Q = mS

= 100 x 1 x [0 -(-10)] = 1000 cal

Let m gram of ice be melted.

∴ Q = mL

or

As small mass of ice is melted, thus the temperature of the resultant mixture will remain 0°C which contains 12.5 g of ice and 87.5 g of water.

Ans.
