Question

If the condition of the patient is very bad due to dehydration the patient is put on a
(A) Blood drip.
(B) Glucose drip.
(C) Water drip.
(D) None of the above.

Answer

Answer: B
Patients are given glucose by drip (during dehydration) instead of food because the drip directly deposits the glucose into the bloodstream and hence the body parts get the glucose in a matter of minutes, but if its given through food the glucose's energy would reach the body parts only after the digestion process and this will take a longer time. Hence to provide the patient with instant energy drip is chosen over food.

So, the correct answer is 'Glucose drip'.

A proton is kept at rest. A positively charged particle is released from rest at a distance \(d\) in its field. Consider two experiments; one in which the charged particle is a proton and in another a positron. In the same time \(t\), the work done on the two moving charged particles is
(A) Same as the same force law is involved in the two experiments
(B) Less for the case of a positron, as the positron moves away more rapidly and the force on it weakens
(C) More for the case of a positron, as the positron moves away a larger distance
(D) Same as the work done by charged particle on the stationary proton
