#### Solutions

S1.Ans.(d)
Sol. Speed is the distance travelled by object in a certain interval of time.Speed is not dependent on direction hence it is a scalar quantity. While Displacement, Momentum and Torque has both magnitude and direction, so they are vector quantity.

S2.Ans.(b)
Sol. Newton’s first law is other name of Galileo’s law of Falling bodies.According to Law of Fall “The distance travelled by falling body is directly proportional to the square of the time it takes to fall”. This latter claim states that a body in motion will continue its motion so long as no factor disturbs that motion. This principle is called the principle of inertia which is basis of Newton’s first law.

S3.Ans.(a)
Sol. A pyrometer is a type of remote-sensing thermometer used to measure the temperature of a surface and inside metallurgical furnaces.

S4.Ans.(d)
Sol. In a qualitative way, a property of matter by which it remains at rest or in uniform motion in the same straight line unless acted upon by some external force is called Inertia. In other words, the tendency of undisturbed objects to stay at rest or to keep moving with the same velocity is called Inertia.

S5.Ans.(c)
Sol. The time taken by a pendulum to complete one oscillation is called its Time Period.
S6.Ans.(c)
Sol. If the mass of an object is 60 kgs, 100N will be its weight on the moon.

S7.Ans.(a)
Sol. The convex mirror produces an upright image of any object and offers a wide viewing area as compared to the plane mirror. The usage of this type of mirror can be perceived on the car rear-view mirror, side-view mirror and even the motorcycles.

S8.Ans.(a)
Sol. If the speed of an object moving along a straight line is constant, its motion is said to be uniform motion.

S9.Ans.(d)
Sol. The strength of a force is usually expressed by its Magnitude.

S10.Ans.(a)
Sol. Concave mirrors are used to provide a magnified and inverted image in rear view mirror.
