SOLUTIONS
S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Barograph was invented in 1844 by the Frenchman Lucien Vidi (1805–1866).

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Power is the ratio of two scalar quatities, and is thus scalar quatities.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Pascal is not unit of Moment of Inertia. Moment of inertia may be expressed in units of kilogram metre squared (kg. m2) in SI units.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Atmospheric pressure is measured by Barometer.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Electric motors operating at low voltage tend to burn out because they draw more current which is inversely proportional to the voltage.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. The Pascal is SI unit of pressure.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. The absorption of ink by blotting paper involves Capillary action phenomenon.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Georges Claude invented Neon Lamp.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Strong nuclear force is the strongest force. It is present inside the atom responsible for binding the protons and neutrons and also inside the proton and neutron in binding up the quarks.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Heavy water is basically used as a moderator in nuclear reactors to slow down the neutrons so that they are captured and become effective to bring about the fission reaction
