Target SSC CGL | 10,000+ Questions | Physics Questions For SSC CGL : Day 17

Dear aspirants,

This is the new year with new goals, new experiences and lots of exams to be scheduled soon. SSC CGL has recently released the exam dates so now it is time to gear up your preparations and try hard to get the success. ADDA247 never fails to deliver something new and fruitful for you all. This time also we are providing you the best study plan as well as a study material. We are here going to prepare your General Science section for the SSC CGL. In this article, we are providing you the details that how we are going to help you to clear the examination this year. We ADDA247 is going to provide you daily tests for all the subjects. The topic-wise quiz will be done from January till April. This will help you to get a deeper knowledge of all the topics and will prepare you thoroughly.

(a) Interference
(b) Diffraction
(c) Polarisation
(d) Total internal reflection

Q4. Tube light is filled with

(a) distance from earth
(b) temperature
(c) luminosity
(d) distance from the sum

Q6. Sound travels in the form of
(a) transverse waves
(b) longitudinal waves
(c) stationary waves
(d) none of the above

Q7. The mirror used by a dentist to examine the teeth of patients is
(a) Concave
(b) Convex
(c) Plane
(d) Cylindrical

Q8. Sound above what level (in decibel) is considered hazardous noise pollution?
(a) 30 dB
(b) 40 dB
(c) 60 dB
(d) 80 dB

Q9. Dispersion process forms spectrum due to white light falling on a prism. The light wave with shortest wavelength
(a) Refracts the most
(b) Does not change the path
(c) Refracts the least
(d) Is reflected by the side of the prism

Q10.In a three pin plug, the longest pin should be connected to
(a) ground terminal
(b) live terminal
(c) neutral terminal
(d) any terminal

Sol. Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a device for producing stimulated radiation. In stimulated radiation, an incoming photon of a specific frequency can interact with an excited atomic electron causing creation of a new photon identical in all respect to the incident photon.
As a result, two similar waves (original incident wave and the newly formed one) constructively interfere, leading to a more intense wave.
S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Infrared is used in the remote control of a television. It has wavelength greater than visible light (>800nm) which is invisible to human eye but can be felt as heat.
S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Diffraction occurs when as wave encounters an obstacle or a slit. Diffraction is the bending of light as it passes around the edge of an object. The amount of bending depends on the relative size of the wavelength of light to the size of the opening/slit.
S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Tube light is filled with mercuric oxide and argon gas where mercuric oxide is used to emit UV light while argon gas is used to provide an inert atmosphere within the tube.
S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. The colour of the star is an indication of its temperature according to Wein’s displacement law λ × T = B
Where λ = Wavelength
T = Temperature and
B = Constant whose value is

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Sound travels in the form of longitudinal waves. These waves travel in the form of compressions and rarefactions.
S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. The mirror by a dentists to examine the teeth of patients is concave as concave mirror given upright and magnified image of the object. While, image formed by a convex mirror is upright but diminished. On the other hand, image formed by plane mirror is of the same size as the object.
S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. A sound’s loudness is measured in decibels (dB). Normal conversation is 60dB, a lawn mower is about 90dB are harmful, depending on how long and how often one is exposed to them.
S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. The light wave with shortest wavelength i.e. violet refracts the most.
S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. In a three pin plug longest pin should be connected to ground terminal. Ground pin is the largest to supply the additional voltage that can give electric shock. And being the longest it can touch before live and neutral terminal.

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.
