During thunderstorm you are travelling in a car. To protect yourself from the lightning you will have to 

A) remain in the car B) get out of the car and lie flat in the ground
C) abandon the car and take shelter under a nearby tree D) touch the nearest electric pole

Answer:   A) remain in the car

Explanation:

The Whole car  - the body and inside - can be considered to be a hallow conductor. During the thunderstorm the body - i.e, the outside- gets a charge but there will be no charge inside. so the inside is safe.

Q:

A disk and a sphere of same radius but different masses roll on two inclined planes of the same altitude and length. Which one of the two objects gets to the bottom of the plane first ?

A) Depends on their masses B) Sphere
C) Disk D) Both reach at the same time
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Sphere

Explanation:

Time does not depend on mass, else

Q:

A potentiometer wire is 100 cm long and a constant potential difference is maintained across it. Two cells are connected in series first to support one another and then in opposite direction. The balance points are obtained at 50 cm and 10 cm from the positive end of the wire in the two cases. The ratio of the emf's is :

A) 3:4 B) 5:4
C) 5:1 D) 3:2
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 3:2

Explanation:

In series : E1 + E2 = K(50)

In parallel : E1 - E2 = K(10)

E1 + E2 / E1 - E2 = 5/1

=> E1/E2 = 3/2

The emf's are in the ratio of 3:2.
