Q:

# In very cold countries alcohol is used as a thermometric liquid because

 A) alcohol is a poor conductor of heat B) alcohol can be coloured for its level to be seen easily C) its freezing point is very low D) it will not stick to the glass tube

Answer:   C) its freezing point is very low

Explanation:

Alcohol has a freezing point as low as  $\inline -117^{o}C$. So it won't freeze even in very cold countries.

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

Explanation:

Time does not depend on mass, else

$\inline \fn_jvn T \prec \sqrt{\left ( 1 +\frac{k^{2}}{R^{2}} \right )}$

$\inline \fn_jvn \frac{k^{2}}{R^{2}}$  => is least for 'sphere' and

hence least time is taken by sphere.

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

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.

Q:

What is the maximum velocity with which a body of mass 'm' must enter a vertical loop of radius 'R'so that it can complete the loop ?

A) $\inline \fn_jvn \sqrt{2gR}$   B) gR   C)  $\inline \fn_jvn \sqrt{5gR}$  D)  $\inline \fn_jvn \sqrt{2g/R}$

 A) A B) B C) C D) D

Explanation:

To complete the vertical loop, the minimum speed required at the lowest point  = $\inline \fn_jvn \sqrt{5gR}$ .
