3. Write the types of stress.
- normal stress
- tangential stress or shearing stress
- hydrolic stress
4. Why rain drops are spherical in shape?
sol- This is due to surface tension and the tendency of water molecules to bind together.
5. What is the difference between isothermal and adiabatic process?
|It is defined as one of the thermodynamic processes which occur at a constant temperature.
|It is defined as one of the thermodynamic processes which occur without any heat transfer between the system and the surrounding
|It contains the transfer of heat.
|It does not contain the transfer of heat.
|Pressure vs volume
|The pressure is more in comparison to volume.
|The pressure is less in comparison to volume.
|The temperature remains constant in such a process.
|Temperature changes due to variations in the internal system in such a process.
|To maintain the temperature, heat can be added or released to the system.
|No need to add or release the heat, constant temperature maintenance is not required here.
|Rate of transformation
The transformation is slow in such a process.
|The transformation is fast in such a process.
6. Give an example of periodic motion which is not oscillatory
sol- Motion of planets around sun.
7. Define transverse wave motion.
sol- Transverse waves cause the medium to move perpendicular to the direction of the wave. Longitudinal waves cause the medium to move parallel to the direction of the wave.

11. a)What is a simple pendulum ?
sol- A simple pendulum can be described as a device where its point mass is attached to a light inextensible string and suspended from a fixed support.
b) Write an expression for time period of a simple pendulum.
sol- T = 2π √R/2g.
c) What is the effective length of a second pendulum?
sol- The pendulum whose time period is 2 sec is called second pendulum. its effective length is 1 meter
12. Obtain an expression for work done during an isothermal process.
13. i) Define the terms :-
a) specific heat capacity
sol- The specific heat capacity is defined as the quantity of heat (J) absorbed per unit mass (kg) of the material when its temperature increases 1 K (or 1 °C), and its units are J/(kg K) or J/(kg °C).
b) Latent heat capacity :-
sol- The latent heat is normally expressed as the amount of heat (in units of joules or calories) per mole or unit mass of the substance undergoing a change of state.
ii) Write principle of calorimetry.
sol- The principle of calorimetry (or principle of mixtures) states that for an insulated system, heat energy lost by the hot body is equal to the heat energy gained by the cold body. Note: Heat transfer occurs until both the bodies attain the same temperature(t).
14. A transverse harmonic wave on a string is described by
