Centrifugation is a separation process which uses the action of centrifugal force to promote accelerated settling of particles in a solid-liquid mixture.

The washing machine consists of centrifuge for this purpose. A centrifuge is a piece of equipment that puts an object in rotation around a fixed axis, applying a force perpendicular to the axis of spin that can be very strong.

Q:

Nuclear sizes are expressed in a unit named

A) Fermi B) Angstrom
C) Newton D) Tesla
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Fermi

Explanation:

Nuclear sizes are expressed in a unit called "Fermi" which is a unit of length equal to 10−15 metre (one femtometre), used in nuclear physics. It is similar to the diameter of a proton.

Q:

Two electric bulbs marked 25W – 220V and 100W – 220V are connected in series to a 440Vsupply. Which of the bulbs will fuse?

A) 25 W B) Both
C) 100 W D) Neither
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 25 W

Explanation:

Resistances of both the bulbs are

 

R1=V^2/P1 = 220^2/25

 

R2 = V^2/P2 = 220^2/100

 

Hence  R1gt ; R2

 

When connected in series, the voltages divide in them in the ratio of their resistances. The voltage of 440 V devides in such a way that voltage across 25 w bulb will be more than 220 V. Hence 25 w bulb will fuse.

Q:

It is more difficult to walk on ice than on a concrete road because 

A) there is very little friction between the ice and feet pressing it B) ice is soft when compared to concrete
C) there is more friction between the ice and feer D) None of these
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) there is very little friction between the ice and feet pressing it

Explanation:

It is the friction between the feet and the ground that helps us to walk. Without this friction we would slip and fall
