    CH#7 Properties of Matter Exercise Short Questions  Answers of Mcqs Q.No Answer Q.No Answer i a vi c ii c vii b iii b viii c iv d ix d v a x a 7.2: How kinetic molecular model of matter is helpful in differentiating different states of matter? Ans. According to kinetic molecular model of matter, matter is made up of particles called molecules. Matter in which molecules are closely packed is called  solids. Matter in which molecules are loosely packed is   called  liquids. Matter in which molecules are much farther apart is called  gases. 7.3: Does there exist a fourth state of matter? What is that? Ans.  Plasma is called fourth state of matter in which a gas occurs in its ionic state. Positive ions & electrons get separated in the presence of electric or magnetic fields . 7.4: What is meant by density? What is its SI unit? Ans. Density of a substance is defined as it mass per unit volume. Its formula is    . Its SI unit is kgm -3 . 7.5: Can we use a hydrometer to measure density of milk? Ans. Lactometer is specially designed hydrometer used in dairies to give a rapid measurement of density of milk, giving an indication of its quality. 7.6: Define the term pressure?  Ans. Pressure is the normally force acting per unit area. Its formula is      . Its SI unit is Nm -2  or pascal (Pa). 7.7: Show that atmosphere exerts pressure? Ans. Take an empty can with a lid & pour some water into it. Place it over flame. After some time, steam starts coming out, expelling air from the can. Remove the can from the flame. Close the can firmly by its cap. Now place the can under the tap water. It is observed that the can gets crushed because pressure exerted by the atmosphere. As cold water is poured over the can, steam inside it condenses to water , creating a very low  pressure. Outside the can, large atmospheric pressure acts on it, crushing it. This experiment shows atmosphere exerts pressure in all directions . 7.8: It is easy to fill air in the balloon but it is very difficult to remove air from a glass bottle. Why? Ans. It is easy to fill air in the balloon but it is very difficult to remove air from a glass  bottle because pressure inside the bottle is less than atmospheric pressure. 7.9: What is barometer? Ans. The instrument which measure atmospheric pressure is called barometer. One of the simple barometer is called the mercury barometer. 7.10: Why water is not suitable to be used in barometers? Ans: Mercury is 13.6 times denser than water. At sea level, vertical height of water column would be 0.76m x 13.6=10.34m. Thus a glass tube more than 10m long is required to make a water barometer which is not possible. Hence water is not suitable to  be used in barometers. 7.11: What makes a sucker pressed on a smooth wall sticks to it? Ans.   The sucker is dish shaped, when pressed against a smooth surface the air is forced from beneath the sucker. The rubber makes an air tight seal and the air pressure outside is greater than the air pressure beneath the sucker, thus forcing the rubber sucker to 'stick'. 7.12: Why does atmospheric pressure varies with height? Ans. Air is mixture of gases .The density of air in atmosphere is not uniform. It decreases continuously as we go up. The air becomes thinner & thinner as we go up. Hence the atmospheric pressure decreases as we go up. 7.13: What does it mean when the atmospheric pressure at a place fall suddenly?  Ans. A sudden fall in atmospheric pressure often followed by a storm, rain & typhoon to occur in few hours time. 7.14: What changes are expected in weather if a barometer reading shows a sudden increase? Ans. A rapid increase in atmospheric pressure means that it will soon be followed by a decrease in atmospheric pressure indicating poor weather ahead. 7.15: State Pascal’s law?   Ans. Liquids transmit pressure equally in all directions. This is called Pascal’s law.   7.16: Explain the working of hydraulic press? Ans.   Hydraulic press is a machine which works on Pascal’s law. It consists of two cylinder of different cross sectional areas. They are fitted with pistons of cross sectional areas a & A. The object to be compressed I placed over the piston of large cross sectional area A. The force F 1  is applied on the piston of small cross sectional area a. The pressure P produced by small piston is transmitted equally to large piston & a force F 2. > F 1  acts on A  . 7.17: What is meant by elasticity? Ans. The property of a body to restore its srcinal size & shape as the deforming force ceases to act is called elasticity. 7.18 : State Archimedes principle? Ans. When an object is totally or partially immersed in a liquid, an upthrust acts on it equal to the weight of the liquid it displaces.  7.19:What is upthrust? Explain the principle of floatation? Ans. A floating object displaces a fluid having weight equal to the weight of object. 7.20: Explain how a submarine moves up the water surface & down into water? Ans. It works on the principle of floatation. It floats over water when weight of water equal to its volume is greater than its weight. It has system of tanks which can be filled with & emptied from seawater. When these tanks are filled with seawater, the weight of submarine increases. A soon as its weight becomes greater than the upthrust, it dives into water & remains under water. To come up on the surface, the tanks are emptied from seawater. 7.21: Why does a piece of stone sink in water but a ship with huge weight floats?  Ans. A huge steel ship like an aircraft carrier can float instead of sink like a stone  because it can displace enough water to compensate for its weight & because air inside ship makes its density actually less than water around it. 7.22: What is Hooke ’s law? What is meant by elastic limit?   Ans. Within the elastic limit, stress is directly proportional to corresponding strain. Elastic limit is a limit within which a body recovers its srcinal length, volume or shape after the deforming force is removed.
