  2. 2. SECTION – I<br />Single Correct Answer Type<br />In each of the statements given below, four alternatives are given. In some cases, more than one alternative is correct. Select the correct alternative(s) in each case and write down the corresponding letter(s)(a),(b),(c) or (d) in your answer book. For each part marks will be awarded only if all the correct alternatives are selected and written:<br />
  3. 3. 01<br />Problem<br />Four physical quantities are listed in column Their values are listed in column II in a random order. Column I Column II <br />Thermal energy of air molecules at room temperature. 0.02 e V<br />Binding energy of heavy nuclei per nucleon. 2 e V <br />X-ray photon energy. 1 k e V <br />Photon energy of visible light 7 Me V<br />
  4. 4. Problem<br />02<br />The correct matching of columnsI and II is given by:<br />(a)– (e), (b)-(h), (c)-(g), (d)-(f)<br />(a)-(e), (b)-(g), (c)-(f), (d)-(h)<br />(a)-(f), (b)-(e), (c)- (g), (d)-(h)<br />(a)-(f), (b)-(h), (c)-(e), (d)-(g)<br />
  5. 5. Problem<br />03<br />A particle is acted upon by a force of constant magnitude which is always perpendicular to the velocity of the particle. The motion of the particle takes place in a plane in a plane. It follows that: <br />its velocity is constant<br />its acceleration is constant<br />its kinetic energy is constants <br />it moves in a circular is path<br />
  6. 6. Problem<br />04<br />A particle executes simple harmonic motion with a frequency, f. The frequency with which its kinetic energy oscillates is : <br />f/2<br />f<br />2f<br />4f<br />
  7. 7. Problem<br />05<br />A charge q is placed at the centre of the line joining two equal charge Q. The system of the three charges will be in equilibrium if q is equal to.<br />a.<br />b.<br />c.<br />d. <br />
  8. 8. Problem<br />06<br />A parallel plate capacitor is charged and the charging battery is then disconnected. If the plates of the capacitor are moved farther apart disconnected. If the plates of the capacitor are moved farther apart by means of insulating handles:<br />he charge on the capacitor increases<br />The voltage across the plates increases<br />The capacitance increases<br />The electrostatic energy stored in the capacitor increases<br />
  9. 9. Problem<br />07<br />Photoelectric effect supports quantum nature of light because: <br />There is a minimum frequency of light below which no photoelectrons are emitted.<br />The maximum kinetic energy of photoelectrons depends only on the frequency of light and not on its intensity <br />Evan when the metal surface is faintly illuminated, the Photoelectrons leave the surface immediately<br />Electric charge of the photoelectrons is quantized <br />
  10. 10. Problem<br />08<br />During a negative beta decay: <br />An atomic electron is ejected<br />An electron which is already present within the nucleus is ejected<br />A neutron in the nucleus decays emitting an electron<br />A part of the binding energy of the nucleus is converted into an electron <br />
  11. 11. Problem<br />09<br />During a nuclear fusion reaction: <br />A heavy nucleus breaks into two fragments by itself.<br />A light nucleus bombarded by thermal neutrons breaks up.<br />A heavy nucleus bombarded by thermal neutrons breaks up.<br />Two light nuclei combine to give a heaver nucleus and possibly other products<br />
