28. Explain why:
(i) A body with large reflectivity is a power emitter.
(ii) A brass tumbler feels much colder than a wooden tray on a chilly day.
(iii) An optical pyrometer (for measuring high temperatures) calibrated for an ideal
black body radiation gives too low a value for the temperature of a red hot piece in
the open, but gives a correct value for the temperature  when the same piece is in
the furnace.
(iv) The earth without its atmosphere would be inhospitably cold.
(v) Heating systems based on circulation of steam are more efficient in warming a
building than those based on circulation of hot water.     (5)
OR
Two identical springs each of force constant K are connected in (a) series (b) parallel, so
that they support a mass m. Find the ratio of the time periods of the mass in the two
systems.            (5)

29. Obtain an expression for the apparent frequency of a note by an observer when
(a) source alone is in motion towards the observer.
(b) source alone is in motion away from the observer.
(c) observer alone is in motion towards the source.
(d) observer alone is in motion away from the source.
(e) when the source and observer are moving towards each other.    (5)
OR
