Sol.A cathode ray is a beam of electrons and electrons have mass and charge both.
Sol. Neutron was discovered by James Chadwick. Sir James Chadwick was a British physicist who was awarded the 1935 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the neutron in 1932.
Sol. The discovery of neutron became very late because it does not carry any charge.
Sol. The three main parts of a atom is protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons – have a positive charge, located in the nucleus, Protons and neutrons have nearly the same mass while electrons are much less massive. Neutrons- Have a negative charge, located in the nucleus.
Sol. The amount of solar radiation reaching a given area.
Sol. The property of elements which is always a whole number is its atomic number i.e. the number of protons and electrons.
Sol.A neutrino is a subatomic particle that is very similar to an electron, but has no electrical charge and a very small mass, which might even be zero.
Sol. The electromagnetic spectrum includes, from longest wavelength to shortest: radio waves, microwaves, infrared, optical, ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma-rays.
Sol. The Rydberg constant, has the value 109,678 cm−1 for hydrogen.
Sol. Light is said to have a dual character. Such studies on light were made by Einstein in 1905. Louis de Broglie, in 1924 extended the idea of photons to material particles such as electron and he proposed that matter also has a dual character-as wave and as particle.

In the last month i.e. in May daily we will provide you with a test of the previous years’ question papers, this will increase your confidence of solving the real exam and will make you familiar with the real-time exam.
