Q:

# Water kept in an earthen pot is less cool on rainy days than in summer because during the rainy days

 A) the pores in the pot are closed B) rain water stops oozing out from the pores C) the water that oozes out does not evaporate quickely because of the large percent age of moisture in the air D) surface of the pot becomes damp

Answer:   C) the water that oozes out does not evaporate quickely because of the large percent age of moisture in the air

Explanation:

To evaporate the water that oozes out, heat is required. Part of this heat is taken from the water inside which therefore become cool. Therefore (C) is correct. Here evaporation is less, so cooling too is less.

Q:

Two metallic plate of equal thickness and coefficient thermal conductivity K1 and K2 put together face to face. A common plate is constructed. What is equivalent K?

 A) K1k2/k1+k2 B) 2k1k2/k1+k2 C) K1+k2/k1k2 D) None

Explanation:

We know that,

The equivalent K =  $\fn_jvn \small \frac{L1+L2}{\frac{L1}{K1}+\frac{L2}{K2}}$

where L1 & L2 are plate1 & Plate2 thicknesses, K1 & K2 are coefficient thermal conductivity of plate1 & Plate2 respectively.

But here L1 = L2 = L (say)

Then K = L+L/(L/K1 + L/K2)  =  $\fn_jvn \small \frac{2K1K2}{K1+K2}$

Q:

"The Law of Kepler" is related with which among the following ?

 A) Planetary Motion B) Law of Conservation of energy C) Law of Gravitation D) None

Explanation:

Kepler's laws of planetary motion are three scientific laws describing the motion of planets around the Sun.

• Kepler’s three laws of planetary motion can be stated as follows:

(1) All planets move about the Sun in elliptical orbits, having the Sun as one of the foci.

(2) A radius vector joining any planet to the Sun sweeps out equal areas in equal lengths of time.

(3) The squares of the sidereal periods (of revolution) of the planets are directly proportional to the cubes of their mean distances from the Sun.
