1.

A cylindrical tube, open at both ends, has a fundamental frequency, f, in the air. The tube is dipped vertically in water so that half of it is in water. The fundamental frequency of the air-column is now

• m1r1:m2r2

• m1 :m2

• r1 :r2

• 1:1

C.

r1 :r2

As their period of revolution is same, so its angular speed is also same. Centripetal acceleration is circular path,
a= ω2r

A liquid in a beaker has temperature θ(t) at time t and θ0 is temperature of surroundings, then according to Newton's law of cooling the correct graph between loge (θ – θ0) and t is

A.

According to Newton's law of cooling.

Hence the plot of ln(θ – θ0) vs t should be a straight line with negative slope.

A thin liquid film formed between a U-shaped wire and a light slider supports a weight of 1.5 x10–2N (see figure). The length of the slider is 30 cm and its weight negligible. The surface tension of the liquid film is

• 0.0125 Nm-1

• 0.1 Nm-1

• 0.05 Nm-1

• 0.025 Nm-1

D.

0.025 Nm-1

The force of surface tension acting on the slider balances the force due to the weight.

⇒F = 2Tl = w
⇒2T(0.3) = 1.5 x 10–2
⇒T = 2.5 x 10–2 N/m

The mass of a spaceship is 1000 kg. It is to be launched from the earth's surface out into free space. The value of 'g'and 'R'(radius of earth) are 10 m/s2 and 6400km respectively. The required energy for this work will be;

• 6.4 x1011 J

• 6.4 x108 J

• 6.4 x109 J

• 6.4 x109 J

D.

6.4 x109 J

Potential energy on the earth's surface is -mgR while in free space, it is zero. So, to free the spaceship minimum required energy is
E =mgR
= 103 x 10 x 6400 x 103 J
= 6.4 x 1010 J

This question has statement 1 and statement 2. Of the four choices given after the statements, choose the one that best describes the two statements.
If two springs S1 and S2 of force constants k1 and k2, respectively, are stretched by the same force, it is found that more work is done on spring S1 than on spring S2.

Statement 1: If stretched by the same amount, work done on S1, will be more than that on S2
Statement 2 : k1 < k2

• Statement 1 is false, Statement 2 is true

• Statement 1 is true, Statement 2 is false

• Statement 1 is true, Statement 2 is the correct explanation for statement 1

• Statement 1 is true, Statement 2 is true, Statement 2 is not the correct explanation for statement 1.

A.

Statement 1 is false, Statement 2 is true

As no relation between k1 and k2 is given in the question, that is why nothing can be predicted about the statement I. But as in Statment II. k1<k2
Then, for same force
