Sol.John Logie Baird was a Scottish engineer, innovator, one of the inventors of the mechanical television, demonstrating the first working television system on 26 January 1926.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol.An electroscope is an early scientific instrument that is used to detect the presence and magnitude of electric charge on a body. It was the first electrical measuring instrument. The first electroscope, a pivoted needle called the versorium, was invented by British physician William Gilbert around 1600.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Wavelength of red colour is largest and violet colour has the shortest wavelength.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Glass is sometimes called a super cooled liquid because it does not form a crystalline structure, but instead forms an amorphous solid that allows molecules in the material to continue to move.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. In a streamline flow, velocity at every point in the fluid remains same.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Postage Meter was invented by Arthur Pitney.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Igor Sikorsky, a Russian is recognized as father of modern helicopters.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol.The water level remains the same when the ice cube melts. A floating object displaces an amount of water equal to its own weight. Since water expands when it freezes, one ounce of frozen water has a larger volume than one ounce of liquidwater.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol.A scalar quantity is a one dimensional measurement of a quantity, like temperature, or weight, it has only magnitude and no direction.
