Q:

# Solids have definite shapes.This is because

 A) the forces of cohesion of the molecules within are very much less in them B) the forces of cohesion are very large C) the forces of adhesion are large D) the forces of adhesion are less

Answer:   B) the forces of cohesion are very large

Explanation:

Cohesion refers to attraction between molecules of the same kind while adhesion refers to attraction between different kinds of molecules

Q:

Sound travels fastest in

 A) Vacuum B) Air C) Glass D) Water

Explanation:

Sound is a mechanical vibration and needs a medium for propagation. The higher the density of the medium, the faster the sound travels. So, sound cannot travel through vacuum.

As the sound travels faster in solids than liquids and gases, sound travels faster in the glass than Air and water.

Q:

In which layer is the pressure the highest?

 A) Ionosphere B) Stratosphere C) Troposphere D) Inner core

Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Inner core

Explanation:

"Pressure" is the ratio of mass to area. So, for any given area, the one with more mass pressing on it will experience a higher pressure.

As you go more deeply into the atmosphere OR earth itself, you are putting more and more mass over you. For the same unit area therefore, the pressure, (mass/area) increases.

Hence, the lowest layer will always have the highest pressure i.e, inner core.

Q:

A periscope works by the principle of

 A) Total internal reflection B) Refraction C) Diffraction D) Reflection & Refraction

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Total internal reflection

Explanation:

A periscope is an optical instrument that uses a system of prisms, lenses, or mirrors to reflect images through a tube.

Light from a distant object strikes the top mirror and is then reflected at an angle of 90 degrees down the periscope tube. At the bottom of the periscope, the light strikes another mirror and is then reflected into the viewer’s eye.

Hence, A periscope works by the principle of Total internal reflection.

Q:

Sound following a flash of lightning is called

 A) Stoning B) Bolting C) Thunder D) Cloud clash

Explanation:

The Sound Following the flash of lighting is because of Thunder.

Lightning is seen earlier than thunder because light travels much faster than sound.

The roar of thunder is the result of a shock wave produced when lightning super-heats the air through which it passes, causing that air to expand very rapidly. This rapid expansion of air creates a shock wave that travels outward at close to the speed of sound.

Q:

What is needed for steering control on a PWC?

PWC refers to Personal Water Crafts.

To control steering on a PWC, the most needed requirement is to have power in which will allows the one using it to control the engine for it to stop or for it to move. Without power, the person using it could be out of balance or fail to start the engine. This is the basic requirement because even though it is shut off or the engine is off, the PWC is still on and it could still move without proper knowledge of the engine.

Q:

Which of the following is the largest unit of information?

 A) 1 TB B) 1 GB C) 1 MB D) 1 KB

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1 TB

Explanation:

1 TB  >  1 GB  >  1 MB  >  1 KB

1 Tb (Tera Byte) = 1024 GB

1 GB (Giga Byte) = 1024 MB

1 MB (Mega Byte) = 1024 KB

1 KB (Kilo Byte) = 1024 Bytes

1 Byte = 8 Bit

Hence, largest unit of information is TB (Tera Byte) and smallest unit of information is Bit.

Q:

An object that has kinetic energy must be

 A) At an elevated position B) Falling C) At rest D) Moving

Explanation:

In physics, we know that the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion. It is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity.

Hence, An object that has kinetic energy must be in motion i.e, moving.

Q:

What is the main function of an ignition safety switch?

An ignition safety switch is a safety device can shut off the engine if the operator falls off the PWC or out of the powerboat, or is otherwise thrown from the proper operating position.

How it works:

It allows the engine of the vehicle to shut off or to be turned off immediately as it is to prevent further complications to happen as this is being used when an emergency is launched

Where it is used:

Most powerboats and PWCs come equipped by the manufacturer with an emergency engine cut-off switch.
