Measurement

Chapter 1

1.) Which of the following is a derived quantity?

a) mass

b) time

c) area

a) 1L = 1cc

b) 1L = 10 cc

c) 1L = 100 cc

d) 1L = 1000 cc

Answer: d) 1L = 1000 cc

1.) Describe the graphical method to find the area of an irregularly shaped plane figure.

Answer: First draw the irregular figure whose are we have to find on graph paper with the help of pencil

i) Now , count the number of boxes which are full and inside the figure you have draw . Take it as F

ii) Now, count the number of boxes which are more than half and inside the outline of figure. Take it as M

iii) Now, count the number of boxes which are half and inside the outline of figure. Take it as H

XI.) Questions based on Higher Order Thinking Skills:

i.) Find the ratio of masses of spheres A and B.

Answer: Mass of A : Mass of B

volume of A ×density of A : volume of B ×density of B

[density of A = density of B]

therefore,  volume of A :Volume of B

4/3πrA3 :4/3πrB3. (rB=1/2rA)

rA3 : 1/8 rA

8 : 1

ii.) Find the ratio of volumes of spheres A and B.

Answer: volume of A : volume of B

4/3πrA3 :4/3πrB3. (rB=1/2rA)

rA3 : 1/8 rA

8 : 1

iii.) Find the ratio of masses of spheres A and C.

Answer: mass of A : mass of C

volume of A× density of A : volume of C × density of C

radius of A and C is same

therefore, volume of A = volume of C

density of A : density of C

2 density of C : density of C [density of A is equal to double of density of C]

therefore ratio is 2:1

XII.) Numerical problems:

1.) A circular disc has a radius 10 cm. Find the area of the disc in m2 (Use π = 3.14).

10cm= 0.1m

Area of disc = πr2 = 3.14×0.1×0.1 = 0.0314m2

2.) The dimension of a school playground is 800 m × 500 m. Find the area of the ground.

Answer: Length of ground = 800m

Breath of ground = 500m

Area of ground = length ×breadth = 800 ×500= 400000m2 = 4×10*5

3.) Two spheres of same size are made from copper and iron respectively. Find the ratio between their masses (Density of copper is 8,900 kg/m3 and iron is 7,800 kg/m3).

Answer: Volume of Copper Sphere = Volume of iron Sphere

Let, Vcu = VFe

Formula of mass = volume × density

M = V × d

Mass ratio is ,  Mcu = MFe

Vcu × 8,900 hg/m3  : VFe × 7,800 hg/m3

Vcu × 89  : VFe × 78

89  : 78

Ratio of mass of spheres of Copper and Iron is = 89 : 78.

4.) A liquid having a mass of 250 g fills a space of 1000 cc. Find the density of the liquid.

Answer: Mass of the liquid =   250 g

Volume of the liquid = 1000cc

= 250 g / 1000cc

= 0.25 g/cc

Density of the liquid  =  0.25g cc-1

5.) A sphere of radius 1cm is made from silver. If the mass of the sphere is 33g, find the density of silver (Take π = 3.14).

Its mass  = 33 g

Volume of the sphere =  4/3 πr3

= 4/3 × 3.14 × (1cm)3

= 4/3 × 3.14 × 13 cm3

Density of sphere (d) = Mass / Volume

= (33 / 3.14) × 3/4 × g.cm-3

Density of sphere = 7.88 g/cm3.
