Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Kaleidoscope
A: A cylinder with mirrors containing loose colored objects such as beads, pebbles, and bits of glass
B: A cylinder with mirrors
C: A cylinder containing loose colored objects such as beads, pebbles, and bits of glass
D: None of the above
A kaleidoscope is a cylinder instrument consisting of mirrors and loose-colored objects such as beads, pebbles, and bits of glass. The viewer can see the colorful patterns created when the end of the kaleidoscope is lightened due to repeated reflections formed by the mirrors.
Hence, option A is correct.
1 pascal is equal to ..Nm^-2
Pascal is the unit of pressure. Pressure is the force applies on unit area. Therefore,
1 pascal =1 Nm-2
Hence,1 pascal is equal to 1 Nm-2.
Which object is vibrating when the following sounds
are produced?a) the sound of a sitar b) the sound of a table c) the sound of a tuning fork d) the buzzing of a bee or mosquito e) the sound of a flute?
When a vibrating tuning fork is placed on a table, then a large sound is heard because the entire system begins vibrating and forces surrounding air particles into vibration motion.
The tendency of one object to force another adjoining or interconnected object into vibration motion is referred to as a forced vibration.
Therefore, option B is correct.
Differentiate between luminous and non uminous objects
The differences between luminous and non-luminous objects are,
|Luminous Objects||Non-luminous Objects|
Luminous objects are objects that can emit
light energy on theirown.
Non-luminous things are those that cannot
emit light energyon their own.
|These things can produce a light sense.||These things do not produce a bright sense.|
Because they emit light on their own,
the bright objects are visible.
Because of the bright things, non-luminous
objects are seen.
|Two examples are the sun and the candle.||Two examples are the moon and planets.|
Hence, the differences between luminous and non-luminous objects are tabulated above.
Lightning occurs because of
B: electric discharge
D: shaking of earth
Lightning is a natural discharge of the static built up in the clouds during a storm.
This effect occurs due to the separation of the positive and negative ions during a storm.
Hence, option B is correct.
