Q9. If the door of a refrigerator is opened while connected to supply, the room gets:
(c) No effect
(d) Nothing could be said as the temperature is not given
Q10. Heat is transmitted from higher to lower temperature through actual mass motion of the molecules in:
(d) All the above three
Sol. A cricket player while taking a catch lowers his hands to stop the momentum of the ball slowly.
Sol. When a body is taken from the earth to the moon its weight decreases as the value of gravity on the surface of the moon is 1/6th as that of the earth’
Sol. Heat energy is actually made up partly of kinetic energy and partly of potential energy.
Sol. The unit of power is joules per second or J/s.
Sol. Solids, liquids and gases all expand on being heated as result density (= mass/volume) decreases.
Sol. If you leave the door open, heat is merely recycled from the room into the refrigerator, then back into the room. A net room temperature increase would result from the heat of the motor that would be constantly running to move energy around in a circle.
Sol. The transfer of energy between an object and its environment, due to fluid motion. The average temperature is a reference for evaluating properties related to convective heat transfer.
