#### Question 4:

A 60 g bullet fired from a 5 kg gun leaves with a speed of 500 m/s. Find the speed (velocity) with which the gun recoils (jerks backwards).

Applying conservation of momentum, we can write here,

Momentum before the bullet leaves the gun =  Momentum after the bullet leaves the gun

Mass of the gun = 5 kg

Mass of the bullet = 60 g

The initial velocity of the gun = Initial velocity of the bullet = 0

The final velocity of the bullet = 500 m/s

The initial momentum of the system = Final momentum of the system

0 + 0 = 60 $×$ 10-3 kg $×$ 500 m/s + 5kg $×$ velocity of the gun

The velocity of the gun =

Hence, the recoil velocity of the gun is 6 m/s.

#### Question 5:

#### Question 6:

A gun of mass 3 kg fires a bullet of mass 30 g. The bullet takes 0.003 s to move through the barrel of the gun and acquires a velocity of 100 m/s. Calculate:
(a) the velocity with which the gun recoils.
​(b) the force exerted on gunman due to recoil of the gun

(a) Applying conservation of momentum, we can write here,

Momentum before bullet leaves the gun =  Momentum after bullet leaves the gun

Mass of the gun = 3 kg, Mass of the bullet = 30 g

The initial velocity of the gun = Initial velocity of the bullet = 0

The final velocity of the bullet = 100 m/s

The initial momentum of the system = Final momentum of the system

0 + 0 = 30 $×$ 10-3 kg $×$ 100 m/s + 3kg $×$ velocity of the gun

The velocity of the gun =

Hence, the recoil velocity of the gun is 1 m/s.

(b) Change in the momentum of the gun after the bullet leaves the barrel = 3 kg $×$ 1 m/s = 3 kg m/s

Time take by the bullet to leave the barrel = 0.003 s

Force exerted by the recoil of the gun on the gunman = Rate of change of momentum of the gun =

#### Question 7:

A liquid compound X of molecular mass 18 u can be obtained from a number of natural sources. All the animals and plants need liquid X for their survival. When an electric current is passed through 200 grams of pure liquid X under suitable conditions, then 178 grams of gas Y and 22 grams of gas Z are produced. Gas Y is produced at the positive electrode whereas gas Z is obtained at the negative electrode. Moreover, gas Y supports combustion whereas gas Z burns itself causing explosions.

(a) Valence electrons are electrons present in the outermost orbital of the atom, basically, only valence electrons participate in bond formation.
Valence electrons are present on outermost orbit.

(b) Electronic configuration of the element with atomic number 13 is 2, 8, 3. So, the number of valence electrons present in the given element is 3. The electronic configuration of the given element is as follows:

So, the valence shell will be M.

#### Question 9:

Describe some flight adaptations of the birds.

Some flight adaptations of birds are -

• Their forelimbs are modified into wings which help them to fly.
• Their wings are covered with feathers of different types which have their role in flight.
• Their feathers are highly modified scales which provide the bird with required warmth at high altitudes during flight.
• They possess long and hollow bones which are connected by air passages (reduces the weight of the body).
• They have very large breast bone with strong muscles which help them in flight.
• Their lungs have big air sacs to fill in lot of air to supply the bird with more oxygen.

#### Question 10:

What are the causes of 'water pollution'? Discuss how you can contribute in reducing water pollution.

a) Water pollution occurs due to a number of reasons such as:

#### Question 11:

Describe the structure of a nerve cell.

Nerve cells are also known as neurons. A neuron consists of 3 parts -

(i) Cell body − It contains a nucleus and cytoplasm.

(iii) Dendrites − These are short, branched parts arising from the cell body. They receive the nerve impulses.

#### Question 12:

How will you separate common salt, sand and iron fillings from their mixture?

We can use a magnet to separate the iron filings from the mixture of common salt, sand and iron filings. Sand and salt can be separated by adding them to water and allowing the salt to dissolve and the sand to settle. When the water is decanted(filtered), sand is left behind. By boiling the decanted water and letting it evaporate, salt can be obtained too.

#### Question 13:

Write about three main criteria which should be considered while selecting the crops for rotation?

Three main criteria which should be considered while selecting the crops for rotation are -

Nutritional requirement - The plants should be selected in such a way that there nutritional requirements are different. This helps in avoiding competition between the two for nutrition.

Root pattern - The plants should be selected in a manner where one is deep rooted while the other is short rooted. This allows maximum utilisation of nutrients and avoiding competition.

Crop maturation - There should be a difference in the time of maturity of the two plants. One should mature earlier than the other.

#### Question 14:

(a) State the principle of flotation.
(b) A floating boat displaces water weighing 6000 newtons.
(i) What is the buoyant force on the boat?
​ (ii) What is the weight of the boat?

(a) According to the principle of floatation, an object will float in a liquid if the weight of an object is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by it.

(b) Weight of the displaced liquid = 6000 N

(i) As we know that, when a body is immersed in a liquid it feels an upward buoyant force which is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by the body. So, the buoyant force on the boat = weight of the liquid displaced by the boat = 6000 N.

(ii) As the boat is floating, so according to the law of floatation the weight of the boat must be equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by it. Hence, the weight of the boat is also 6000 N.

#### Question 15:

The following data was obtained for a body of mass 1 kg dropped from a height of 5 metres:

 Distance above ground Velocity 5 m 0 m/s 3.2 m 6 m/s 0 m 10 m/s
Show by calculations that the above data verifies the law of conservation of energy (Neglect air resistance). (g = 10 m/s2).

Law of conservation of energy says if there are no external forces working on the object then at any point of time the total energy of the object remains conserved.

Mass of the body = 1 kg

Case I:

Velocity of the body at height 5 m = 0 m/s

The potential energy at the height of 5 meters = mgh = 1 kg$×$ 10 ms-2 $×$ 5 m = 50 J

Kinetic energy at a height of 5 meters = 0

The total energy of the body at a height of 5  meters = 50 J +0 = 50 J

Case II:

The velocity of the body at the height of 3.2 meters = 6 m/s

The potential energy at the height of 3.2 meters = mgh = 1 kg$×$ 10 ms-2 $×$ 3.2 m = 32 J

Kinetic energy at a height of 5 meters =

The total energy of the body at a height of 3.2 meters = 32 J + 18 J = 50 J

Case III:

The velocity of the body at the bottom = 10 m/s

The potential energy at the bottom = mgh = 1 kg$×$ 10 ms-2 $×$ 0 m = 0

Kinetic energy at the bottom =

The total energy of the body at the bottom = 0 J + 50 J = 50 J

Hence, we can see through all the three cases that the total energy of the body was conserved throughout the motion.

#### Question 16:

(a) State and explain the law of conservation of energy with an example.
​(b) Explain how, the total energy a swinging pendulum at any instant of time remains conserved. Illustrate your answer with the help of a labelled diagram.

(a) The law of conservation of energy states that energy can neither be created nor be destroyed, but it can be transformed from one form to another. Example: When a body is thrown upward with some velocity, the total energy throughout the motion remains conserved. As the body moves upward, the kinetic energy of the body gradually gets converted into potential energy of the body and when the body falls back to the ground the potential energy of the body gets converted back into its kinetic energy and the body return back with the same velocity it was thrown upward.

(b) A swinging pendulum is a perfect example to show the conservation of energy. The total energy of the bob of the pendulum is the sum of the potential energy and kinetic energy. Initially, the bob of the pendulum is at the mean position (B). When the bob is drawn to one side (Extreme position A), and raised to a little height, it gains some potential energy.

This is the energy transferred by work done by the hand. At the extreme position, the bob has only P.E. When it's left at the extreme position, it moves down. Then the P.E. decreases and K.E. increases. At the lowest (mean) position, the bob only has the K.E.

But as soon as it moves further to mean position, its K.E. decreases, and P.E. increases. At the extreme positions A and C, all energy is in the form of potential energy and therefore it tends to move down. At all other intermediate positions, the energy of the pendulum is partly potential and partly kinetic. But, the total energy of the pendulum remains conserved.

#### Question 17:

#### Question 18:

With the help of a labelled diagram show
(a) Nitrogen cycle in nature
​(b) Describe briefly any two processes involved in the cycling of N2 in the environment.

(a) Nitrogen-cycle is a biogeochemical cycle. It describes the transformation of atmospheric nitrogen to simpler molecules in soil and water that get converted to more complex molecules and eventually are converted back to the simple nitrogen molecule in the atmosphere. The given figure shows the nitrogen cycle. (b) Two processes involved in the cycling of N2 in the environment are -

1. Nitrogen fixation: N NO3 − or NH4

It is the process wherein atmospheric nitrogen is converted into water-soluble nitrates. This step is performed by organisms like RhizobiumAzotobacter and blue-green algae.

1. Nitrification: NH3 NO2 − NO3 −

It is the process in which ammonia is first converted into nitrites and then into nitrates. This step is performed by nitrifying bacteria like Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter.

#### Question 19:

(b) Name an animal which navigates and finds food by echolocation.
(c) Which of the two produces ultrasonic waves: porpoise or whale?

(a) (i) Echolocation is a method used by few animals like bats, porpoises and dolphins to locate the objects by hearing the echoes of their ultrasonic squeaks.

(ii) When ultrasound waves are used to create the images of the heart of our body, the technique used is known as the echocardiography.

(iii) The technique of obtaining the pictures of internal organs of the body by using echoes of ultrasound pulses is called ultrasonography.

(b) A bat navigates and finds food by echolocation.

(c) A porpoise produces ultrasonic waves.

#### Question 20:

(a) What is Brownian motion? Draw a diagram to show the movement of a particle (like a pollen grain) during Brownian motion.
​(b) In a beam of sunlight entering a room, we can sometimes see dust particles moving in a haphazard way in the air. Why do these dust particles move?

(a) If we see a colloidal solution through a strong ultramicroscope, then we observe that the colloidal particles are in a state of continuous zig-zag motion. This type of motion is known as Brownian motion named after British botanist, Robert Brown. (b) When a beam of light enters a room, the dust particles can be seen moving in a haphazard manner because they are constantly hit by the fast-moving particles of air. Those tiny dust particles scatter the light ray, that's why we are able to their random motion in the air.

#### Question 21:

Three different atoms of oxygen are represented as:
${}_{8}{}^{16}\mathrm{O},{}_{8}{}^{17}\mathrm{O}$ and ​${}_{8}{}^{18}\mathrm{O}$
(a) What do the subscripts (lower figures) and superscripts (upper figures) represent?
(b) What factor is responsible for the change in the superscripts 16, 17 and 18, though the element is the same?
(c) What is the usual name for such atoms of an element?
(d) Give the nuclear composition of ${}_{8}{}^{18}\mathrm{O}$​.

(a) Subscripts represent the atomic number while superscripts represent the atomic mass of the atom.

(b) The number of neutrons is different for all the three given atoms, so the value of atomic mass is different too. That's why superscripts are different though the element is the same.

(c) The atoms which have the same atomic number but a different mass number are known as isotopes.

(d) Nuclear composition of ${}_{8}{}^{18}\mathrm{O}$:
Number of electrons = 8
Number of protons = 8
Number of neutrons = Atomic mass - Number of protons
Number of neutrons = 18 - 8
Number of neutrons = 10

#### Question 22:

Bromine and air take about 15 minutes to diffuse completely but bromine diffuses into a vacuum very rapidly. Why is this so?

When bromine diffuses in the air, the bromine particles bump into the already present air particles due to which diffusion is slow but in a vacuum, there are no air particles in the way of bromine particles, therefore bromine particles can diffuse fast.

#### Question 23:

Government has recently taken series of steps to minimise cigarette smoking and tobacco chewing by people as these are injurious to health.
(a) List at least three steps taken by government to aware people about harmful effects of cigarette smoking and tobacco chewing.
(b) What is passive smoking?
​(c) List at least one chronic disease that occurs due to continuous use of tobacco.

(a) Three steps to minimise the use of cigarette smoking and tobacco chewing are -

• Restricting the age of buying these products to 18 years
• Advertisement in television regarding the side effects of use of these products.
• Printing warnings such as "Smoking is injurious to health" and certain images on packets of such products.
(b) The involuntary inhalation of smoke by one person from another person's cigarettes, cigars, or pipes is called as passive smoking.
(c) Continuous use of tobacco can lead to cancer of mouth.

#### Question 24:

An element X forms the following compounds with hydrogen, carbon and oxygen:
H2X, CX2, XO2, XO3
​State the three valencies of element X which are illustrated by these compounds.

Valency of X in H2X = $-$2
Valency of X in CX2 = $-$2
Valency of X in XO2  = +4
Valency of X in XO3 = +6

Hence, element X is showing three different valencies which are $-$2, +4 and +6.

#### Question 25:

What will happen if
(a) ligament gets over stretched?
(b) heparin is absent in blood?
​(c) striated muscles contract rapidly for longer duration?

(a) Ligaments belong to the group of connective tissues which connect bones to other bones at joints. It is made up of strong band of fibers and overstretching of ligaments can cause small breaks in the fiber or twisting and tearing of them. This can lead to severe pain and difficulty in performing daily chores.

(b) Heparin is an anticoagulant which is found in blood. It prevents the blood from clotting. If it is absent in blood, then the blood would coagulate inside the blood vessels.

(c) Rapid contraction of striated muscles for longer duration will cause fatigue of these muscles due to production of lactic acid.

#### Question 26:

A ball hits a wall horizontally at 6.0 m s−1. It rebounds horizontally at 4.4  m s−1​. The ball is in contact with the wall for 0.040 s. What is the acceleration of the ball?
