Q.18. Answer any four questions out of five on the basis of your understanding of the following paragraph & related concepts. The most remarkable concept that Dalton’s atomic theory proposed was that of atomic mass. According to him, each element had a characteristic atomic mass. The theory could not explain the law of constant proportion so well that scientists were prompted to measure the atomic mass of an atom. Since determining the mass of an individual atom was a relatively difficult task, relative atomic masses were determined using the law of chemical combination and the compounds formed. Let us take the example of a compound carbon monoxide (CO) formed by carbon & oxygen. It was observed experimentally that 3 g of carbon combines with 4g of oxygen to form CO. In other words, carbon combines with 4/3 times its mass of oxygen. Suppose we define the atomic mass unit (earlier abbreviated as amu but according to latest recommendations as u) as equal to mass of one carbon atom, then we would assign carbon an atomic mass of 1.0 u & oxygen an atomic mass of 1:33 u. However it is more convenient to have these numbers as whole numbers or as near to a whole number as possible. While searching for various atomic mass scientists initially took 1/16 of the mass of an atom & naturally occurring oxygen as the unit.

(a) What is the most remarkable concept of Dalton’s atomic theory?

(b) Why was the concept of relative atomic mass introduced?

(c) Why was initially 1/16 of the mass of oxygen taken as the unit?

(d) What is now the standard reference for measuring atomic mass?

(e) What is 1 atomic mass unit?

Q.19. Whenever an object moves near the surface of earth with no other object pushing or pulling it, it is accelerated. This acceleration is caused due to force of gravity and is called acceleration due to gravity. For an object of mass ‘m’ moving freely near the earth’s surface,


(I) The value of acceleration due to gravity of a body due to earth during free fall is

(A) 9.8 cm/s2
(B) 98 cm/s2
(C) 980 cm/s2
(D) 980 m/s2

(II) Acceleration due to gravity ‘g’ on the surface of earth and universal gravitational constant ‘G’ are correlated as:

(III) If two stones, one of mass 100g and another of mass 2 kg are allowed to fall from the top of a high tower simultaneously. Then

(a) stone of mass 2 kg will reach the ground first.
(b) stone of mass 100 g will reach the ground first.

Q.20. It is our common experience that different persons complete a given work in different times. A person doing a given work in less time is said to be stronger but another person doing the same work in longer time is said to be weaker. Again different machines transfer energy at different rates. A more powerful vehicle would complete a journey in a shorter time than a less powerful vehicle. Thus, we define a term ‘power’ which is a measure of the rate of doing work.

(I) Power (P) and work (W) are correlated as

(II) A man is holding a weight of 1 kg at a height of 1m for 30 sec. How much power is delivery by him?

(A) 9.8/30 W (B) 9.8×30 W (C) 9.8 W (D) zero

(III) A person A does 500 J of work in 10 minutes and another person B does 600 J of work in 20 minutes. Let the power delivered by A and B be p1 and p2 respectively. Then,

(A) p1 = p2
(B) p1 > p2
(C) p1 < p2
(D) p1 and p2 are undefined.

(IV) 1 Horse power is

(A) 1000W (B) 1000 kW (C) 3.6 x106 W (D) 746 W
