    Formula unit mass of Na2S2O3 = (2 × Na atomic mass) + (2 × S atomic mass) + (3 × O atomic mass)
    = (2 × 23) + (2 × 32) + (3 × 16)
    = 1584 u.
  12. Give Reasons:-
    (a) When a ball dropped from a height, its speed continuously increased.
    (b) When we stop pedaling a bicycle, its speed slows down.
    (c) When a tree is shaken vigorously, its fruits and leaves fall down.
    (a) When a ball is droped from a height. Its speed continuously increased due to force of gravity (acceleration due to gravity increase on coming downwards).
    (b) When we stop pedaling a bicycle, its speed slows down due to air resistance and force of friction between type of bicycle and surface of road. So retardation force is created which stop the bicycle.
    (c) When tree is shaken. It moves to and slightly but its fruits and leave tends to remain at rest due to their inertia and hence detached from the tree and fall down.
  13. Cattle farming. poultry and fish farming are included in animal husbandry. What is the need of animal husbandry.
    Management of cattle farming is known as animal husbandry. It includes various tasks such as giving food to cattles, animals, shelter, breeding, health, disease control and proper economic utilization. Animal farming includes cow, buffalo, goat, sheep, camel, poultry, and fisheries. Due to increasing population, demand for milk, eggs, meat etc is also increased. Now farmers take up animal husbandry on commercial basis so it needs scientific management practices. cattle farming is done for milk and agricultural work. By poultry we increase meat an eggs production. fisheries is a cheap source of protein food.
  14. (a) Meristematic cell contains dense or abundant cytoplasm a single large nucleus but no vacuole.
    (b) In sclerenchyma tissue intercellular space is absent in between the cells.
    (c) In xerophytic plants, epidermis is covered with cutin.
    Give Reason:-
    Ans. (a) Cells of meristems divide continuously and help in increasing the length and girth of the plants, so they have abundant cytoplasm and prominent nucleus, thin cell wall but no vacuoles. Vacuole is like a bag which store or liquid substances. Meristematic cells do not have stared food in them.
    (b) In sclerenchyma tissue intercellular space is absent in between the cells because these cells are dead and cell walls are thicked due to deposition of lignin which acts as cement.
    (c) In xerophyte plants, epidermis is covered with cutin. Cutin is a layer which resists transport of water through it. Desert have a little water. Cutin protects cells form dryness and also check transpiration from leaves.
  15. A bike is moving with a velocity of 90 Km/hr. After applying break it stop in 5 sec. Calculate the force applied by breaks. Mass of motorcycle and rides is 200 Kg.
    Mass of motorcycle and rider m = 200 Kg
    Initial velocity u = 90 Km/h-1 {tex} = 90 \times \frac{5}{{18}}{/tex}
    Final Velocity of motor cycle v = 0
    Time (t) = 5s
    Acceleration {tex}a = \frac{{u – v}}{t}{/tex}
    Force F = ma
    {tex}F = \frac{{200 \times (0 – 25)}}{5} = – 1000N{/tex}
  16. With the help of a labelled diagram show nitrogen cycle in nature. Name two molecules essential to life which contain nitrogen. Explain any two processes involved in the cycling of nitrogen in the environment.
    Various steps of nitrogen cycle are :

    Two molecules essential to life which contain nitrogen are:
    (i) Nucleic acids
    (ii) Some vitamins.
    Two processes involved in the cycling of nitrogen in the environment are:
    1. Nitrogen fixing bacteria are formed in the roots of legumes. These bacteria fix atmospheric nitrogen in the form of nitrates and nitrites which can then be used by plants.
    2. Fixation of nitrogen by lightning-During lightning, the high temperatures and pressures created in the air convert nitrogen into oxides of nitrogen. These oxides dissolve in water to give nituie and nitrogen acids and fall on land along with rain. These are then utilised by various like forms.
  17. (a) Name three diseases against which immunisation vaccines are available.
    (b) State in brief the principle of immunisation.
    (c) Why do we not need to immune many infants in our country (below the age of 5) against Hepatitis A?
    (a) 1. Polio.
    2. Measles
    3. Tetanus
    (b) When the immune system first seen an infections microbe, it responds against this and then remembers it specifically. The next time when that particular microbe or its close relatives enter the body, the immune system responds more vigorously. This eliminates the infection more quickly than the first time around. This is the principle of immunisation.
    (c) Because they have already been exposed to hepatitis. A virus through contaminated water and gone immune to it.
  18. What is:
    (a) Wave Length
    (b) Frequency
    (c) Amplitude.
    Write its S.I. units. Derive the relationship between speed, wavelength and frequency.
    (a) Wave Length: The distance between two consecutive compressions (C) or two consecutive rare factions (R) is called wavelength. The wave length is represented by {tex}\lambda{/tex} (Lambda). Its S.I. unit is meter (m).
    (b) Frequency: The number of oscillations per unit time is called frequency of the sound wave. It is represented by v (nu). Its S.I. unit is hertz (Hz).
    (c) Amplitude: The maximum displacement of the particles of the medium from their original undisturbed position, When a wave passes through a medium is called amplitude. It is represented by the letter A. The SI unit of amplitude of sound wave is the unit of density.
    Relationship between speed, wavelength and frequency
    Distance travelled m/s is speed
    V = {tex}\frac{{{\text{Distance travelled by one complete wave}}}}{{{\text{Time taken to complete one wave}}}}{/tex}
    {tex}{\text{ = }}\frac{\lambda }{{Ts}}{/tex}
    {tex}V = \frac{\lambda }{T} = \lambda v\;\left( {\frac{1}{T} = v} \right){/tex}
    V = λv
    Wave speed = wave length × frequency
  19. (a) What is the physical state of water at:

    (iii)A bullet of mass 10 g travelling horizontally with a velocity of 150 ms-1 strikes a stationary wooden block and comes to rest in 0.03 S.
    Calculate the distance of penetration of the bullet into the block.
    (i) When a man jumps out of a boat to the bank of the river, he applies a force in the forward direction. Due to the reaction of this boat moves backward (i.e. away from the bank).
    (ii) When we walk on the ground, our foot pushes the ground backward (action) and in return the ground pushes our foot forward (reaction).
    The forward reaction enerted by the ground on our foot makes us walk forward.
    (iii) Mass of bullet m = 10 g = {tex}\frac{{10}}{{1000}}{/tex} kg= 0.01 kg
    Initial velocity, u = 150 ms-1
    Final velocity, v = 0
    Time taken = 0.03 sec
    Then, acceleration.
    {tex}a = \frac{{v – u}}{t} = \frac{{(0 – 150)}}{{0.03}} = – 500\,m{s^{ – 2}}{/tex}
    By third law of motion, v2 – u2 = 2as
    {tex}s = \frac{{{v^2} – {u^2}}}{{2a}}{/tex} {tex}= \frac{{{{(0)}^2} – {{(150)}^2}}}{{2 \times ( – 5000)}} = \frac{{ – 150 \times 150}}{{ – 2 \times 5000}}{/tex}
    = 2.25 m
