(a) Flat trajectory
(b) Curve trajectory
(c) Straight trajectory
(d) High trajectory

Q10. A device which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy is- 
(a) Dynamo
(b) Transformer
(c) Electric motor 
(d) Inductor


S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. The water level remains the same when the ice cube melts. A floating object displaces an amount of water equal to its own weight. Since water expands when it freezes, one ounce of frozen water has a larger volume than one ounce of liquid water.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. The Orbital Motion Interactive is simulates the elliptical motion of a satellite around a central body. In this type of motion axis of the rotation does not pass through the object.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Spin and Orbital motion are the two kinds of Rotatory motion.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. The rate of change of momentum of an object is directly proportional to the resultant force applied and is in the direction of the resultant force. The resultant force is equal to the rate of change of momentum.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Scottish inventor and veterinary surgeon John Boyd Dunlop developed the pneumatic (air-filled) rubber tire. He was one of the founders of the rubber company that bore his name, Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Company. In 1888, Dunlop patented his pneumatic tyre.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. When net torque is zero, angular momentum will be constant.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Newton's first law of motion is also known as the law of inertia.Newton's First Law of Motion states, "A body at rest will remain at rest, and a body in motion will remain in motion unless it is acted upon by an external force."

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. The gravitational constant, symbolized G , is a physical constant that appears in the equation for Newton's law of gravitation. This is different from ‘g’ which is denotes the acceleration due to gravity.

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. In a projectile motion, a large angle with the horizontal produces high trajectory.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Electric motor is a device which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Electric motors involve rotating coils of wire which are driven by the magnetic force exerted by a magnetic field or an electric current.
