Q:

# The velocity required to place a vehicle in orbit round the moon is _______ that required to place it in orbit round the earth

 A) less than B) Greater than C) equal to D) greater than or equal to

Explanation:

This orbital velocity at the moon is less because orbital velocity = $rg$

where 'r ' is the orbital radius. i.e the distance of the body from the center of the earth and 'g' is the acceleration due to gravity on the body in question. In the case of the moon, both r and g are less than in the case of the earth.

Q:

Mirage is due to

 A) Magnetic disturbances in the atmosphere B) Equal heating of different parts of the atmosphere C) Unequal heating of different parts of the atmosphere D) Depletion of ozone layer in the atmosphere

Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Unequal heating of different parts of the atmosphere

Explanation:

Mirage is a naturally occurring optical phenomenon due to unequal heating of different parts of the atmosphere in which light rays bend to produce a displaced image of distant objects or the sky.

Q:

Speed regulation of synchronous motor is

 A) 1% B) 25% C) Zero D) 0.5%

Explanation:

Synchronous motor is a motor which runs at a constant speed irrespective of load attached to it. So the speed regulation of synchronous motor is ZERO.

Q:

Cryogenic Engines find applications in

 A) Frost - Free refrigerators B) Sub-marine propulsion C) Researches in superconductivity D) Rocket technology

Explanation:

Cryogenic Engines find applications in Rocket technology. A cryogenic rocket engine is a rocket engine that uses a cryogenic fuel or oxidizer, that is, its fuel or oxidizer are gases liquefied and stored at very low temperatures. Notably, these engines were one of the main factors of NASA's success in reaching the Moon by the Saturn V rocket.

Q:

Which sources produce alternating current (AC)?

 A) Solar power plants B) Hydro-electric generators C) Batteries D) All of the above

Explanation:

Alternating Current (AC) is the current in which flow of current is altered periodically whereas in DC current i.e, direct current the flow of current is only in one direction.

Some of the sources of AC current are :

1. Hydro-electric generators

2. Thermal power generators

3. Nuclear  power generators...

Q:

If velocity is constant then acceleration is what?

 A) constant B) increasing C) 0 D) infinite

Explanation:

If an object moves with some velocity that means the magnitude and direction of the object changes i.e, the object moves with some acceleration. Hence, if the object moves with constant velocity, no change in direction and magnitude of speed i.e, no acceleration = 0 acceleration.
