a.

3s

b.

32s

c.

23s

d.

400s

Answer

a.

Distance between boy and cliff is 300 m, and he shouted for help but its voice back as echo. So distance travel by voice is 2 ⨯ 300

And the sound travels with speed 200 m/s

200=Distancetravelbysoundtime

time=distancetravelbysound200

time=2×(300200)=3s

Question

Thumb is placed on bicycle outlet. If air is pushed in what change will occur to pressure and volume?

A student stops the air coming out from bicycle pump

A student stops the air coming out from bicycle pump

A student places his thumb firmly on the outlet of a bicycle pump, to stop the air coming out is shown in figure.

Choices

Choice (4) Response
a.

Pressure increases, volume remains the same

b.

Pressure decreases, volume decreases

c.

Pressure increases, volume decreases

d.

Pressure decreases, volume remains the same

Answer

c.

Explanation

In figure we can see that a student places his thumb on the outlet of a bicycle pump, to stop the air coming out. And direction of the motion of pump increases the pressure and there is no space to coming out to the air, therefore volume will decrease.
