Question 137

Question

MCQ▾

Sodium-24 has half-life of 15 hours. If there are 1600g of Na-24 initially, how will it take for 1400g of Na-24 to decay?

Choices

Choice (4)

a.

45 hrs

b.

50 hrs

c.

1 day

d.

40 hrs

Answer

a.

Explanation

For finding half-life the formula is

In () =-kt

Here,

K =

K = constant and = half life

K =

In () =-kt

In ()

In

t =

t = 45 hrs

(OR)

3 half-lives for sample to decay from 1600g to 200g

i.e..

45hours for 1400g of sodium-24 to decay

Question 138

Question

MCQ▾

The circuit shown contains three lamps and 4 switches

3 Lamps and 4 Switches

Which switches must be closed to light up lamp 1 and lamp 3?

Choices

Choice (4)

a.

switch 1,2, 3 and 4 only

b.

switch 5 only

c.

switch 1, switch 2 and switch 5 only

d.

switch 1 and switch 2 only

Answer

c.

Explanation

  • The given circuit is a parallel circuit. In a parallel circuit the current passes in a closed path.
  • If there is any breakage the current does not flows through it.
  • From the circuit, the switch 1, switch 2 and switch 5 must be closed to light the lamp 3.
