(a) Remains same
(b) Becomes half
(c) Becomes twice
(d) Becomes one fourth

Solutions:

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Pascal is not unit of Moment of Inertia. Moment of inertia may be expressed in units of kilogram metre squared (kg. m2) in SI units.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol.Atmospheric pressure is measured by Barometer.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Hyetometer is the instrument used to measure rainfall.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol.Max Planck was a German theoretical physicist, considered to be the initial founder of quantum theory, and one of the most important physicists of the 20th Century.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol.If an object, on a free fall from a certain height, reaches the ground in 1 second, its velocity on the impact with the ground 9.8 m/s.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol.Spin and Orbital motion are the two kinds of Rotatory motion.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol.The moment arm or lever arm is the perpendicular distance between the line of action of the force and the center of moments. Moment Arm is the perpendicular distance between point of application of force and axis of rotation.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Longsec is not the unit of distance.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol.Robert Hutchings Goddard (October 5, 1882 – August 10, 1945) was an American engineer, professor, physicist, and inventor who is credited with creating and building the world’s first liquid-fueled rocket.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol.Weight of a person at a height of 2R from the centre of the earth, where R is the radius of the earth became one-fourth.
