(Section - A)

Q.1. A diver is able to cut through water in a swimming pool. Which property of matter does this observation show ?
Ans. Particles of water are held together by forces of attraction. It is these forces of attraction, which the diver cuts through water in the swimming pool.

Q.2. The property to flow is unique to fluids. Which one of the following statements is correct?
(a) Only gases behave like fluids 
(b) Gases and solids behave like fluids
(c) Gases and liquids behave like fluids
(d) Only liquids are fluids

Ans. (c)
Liquids and gases are called fluids because of their ability to flow. The fluidity in both of these states as the molecules are free to move due to lesser force of attraction between the particles. On the contrary; the constituent particles in solids have fixed positions and can only oscillate about their mean positions so does not flow.

Q.3. A man raises a weight of 1 kg to a height of 1 m and holds it there for 30 s. How much work has he performed ?
(a) 9.8 J
(b) 9.8 x 30 J
(c) 9.8 x 31 J
(d) zero
(a) Here m = 1 kg and h = 1 m
∴ Work done W = F s = (mg).h = 1 x 9.8 x 1 = 9.8 J

Q.4. Question number 4 is based on the paragraph given below. Study this paragraph and answer the questions that follow.
When two or more non-reacting gases are kept side by side, they have the tendency to mix with one another to form a homogeneous mixture. This can occur also if two gases have different densities. The heavier gas can move up or a lighter gas can move down against the action of gravity. It shows that gas particles move at random with large intermolecular spaces.
This mixing of gases is known as diffusion. According to Graham's law of diffusion, the rate of diffusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its density or molar mass. Thus, gas having lower molecular mass will diffuse fast

Q.17. What do you mean by the term ‘pitch of a sound ?
Draw a diagram depicting low pitched sound and high pitched sound. What is the main difference between the two ?
Establish a relation between wavelength, frequency and speed of sound in a medium.

Ans. Pitch is that characteristic of sound which enables us to distinguish between a shrill sound (sound of higher pitch) from a grave or a hoarse sound (sound of lower pitch).
The diagrams have been shown in the following figure.
Sample Question Paper - 5 Class 9 Notes | EduRev
High pitched sound has high frequency but low pitched sound has low frequency.
The speed of sound is defined as the distance which a point on a wave travels in a unit time.
As distance covered by wave in one time period is called the wavelength, hence
Sample Question Paper - 5 Class 9 Notes | EduRev
But 1/T = number of vibrations completed per unit time = v = frequency
∴  Sample Question Paper - 5 Class 9 Notes | EduRev
or  Speed of sound (v) = frequency (v) x wavelength (λ)

(ii) Organic farming is a system of farming without the use of chemicals such as fertilisers and pesticides etc., and with a maximum input of organic manures with healthy cropping systems.
There are two ways to treat an infectious disease. They are as follows :
(i) Reduce the effect of disease : The principle involved is that the effect of disease is lessened without killing the infectious agent which is done either by taking medicines and antibiotics as well as taking appropriate rest so that the body heals.
(ii) Kill the microorganisms of infectious agents : The infectious agents like bacteria, viruses, fungi, helminths and protozoan’s have some essential biochemical life processes which are peculiar to this group. These processes may be pathways for respiration or synthesis of new substances. Drugs are available which block these processes and kill the infectious agents. Antibiotics are chemicals produced by microbes which kill or prevent the growth of other microbe by blocking life processes without harming human cells.

Q.24. Using following data draw time - displacement graph for a moving object:
Sample Question Paper - 5 Class 9 Notes | EduRev
Use this graph to find average velocity for first 4 s, for next 4 s and for last 6 s.
A ball is gently dropped fro m a height of 20 m. If its velocity increases uniformly at the rate of 10 ms-2 with what velocity will it strike the ground? After what time will it strike the ground?

Ans. The graph is as shown:
Sample Question Paper - 5 Class 9 Notes | EduRev
Average velocity for first 4 s = slope of the part OA of the graph = 4/4 = 1 m s-1 
Average velocity for next 4 s = 0 (graph is a straight line)
Average velocity for the last 6 s = (0 - 6)/ (16 - 10) = - 1 m s-1
Given: Initial velocity of ball u = 0
Final velocity of ball, v =?
Distance through which the ball falls, S = 20 m
Acceleration, a = 10 m s-2 
Time of fall, t = ?
We know
v2 - u2 = 2aS
or v2 - 0 = 2 x 10 x 20 = 400
or v = 20 m s-1 
Now, using v = u + at, we have
20 = 0 + 10 x t
or t = 2 s

(iii) Why is 'G' called a universal constant ?
Ans. (i) Let mass of first body be m1
Let mass of second body be m2
Force on 1st body = Force on 2nd body
GMm1/R2 = GMm2/R2
G and G cancel. M and M cancel R2 and R2 cancel
This leaves
m1 = m2
Hence proved.
(ii) g. = GM/R2

(b) What are isotopes ? Write the three isotopes of hydrogen atom. Write any two applications of an isotope.
(a) Mass number of X = 19
Atomic number of X = 9
Therefore number of protons = Number of electrons = 9
Number of neutrons = Mass number - Atomic number
= 19 - 9 = 10
The electronic distribution in X is 2, 7.
It will gain one electron to complete its octet.
Therefore, valency of X = 1
(b) Isotopes are defined as the atoms of the same element having the same atomic number but different mass numbers.

(i) Most of the space inside the atom is empty because most of the α-particles passed through the gold foil without getting deflected.
(ii) Very few particles were deflected from their path, indicating that the positive charge of the atom occupies very little space.
(iii) A very small fraction of α-particles was deflected by 180º, indicating that all the positive charge and mass of the gold atom were concentrated in a very small volume within the atom.
