We can easily boil water in a paper cup. Why?

Answer

When water in a paper cup is heated, the heat is easily conducted through the paper to the water. Due to it, the temperature attained by paper cup is not sufficient for the paper to be charred.

A wire of length L and radius a rigidlyl fixed at one end. On stretching the other end of the wire with a force F, the increase in its length is L, if another wire of same material but of length 2 L and radius 2 a is stretched with a force 2 F, the increase in its length will be
(A) L//4
(B) L
(C) L//2
(D) 2 L
when a thermometer is taken from the melting ice to a warm liquid, the mercury level rises to \(\frac{{{2}}}{{{5}}}{t}{h}\) of the distance between the lower and the upper fixed points. Find the temperature of liquid in \(.^{{\circ}}{C}\) and K.
For an ideal liquid
(A) the bulk modulus is infinite
(B) the bulk modulus is zero
(C) the shear modulus is infinite
(D) the shear modululs is zero.
The pressure exerted by an ideal gas is \({P}=\frac{{{1}}}{{{3}}}\frac{{{M}}}{{{V}}}{C}^{{{2}}}\), where the symbols have their usual meaning. Using standard gas equation, PV = RT, we find that \({C}^{{{2}}}=\frac{{{3}{R}{T}}}{{{M}}}{\quad\text{or}\quad}{C}^{{{2}}}\infty{T}\). Average kinetic energy of translation of one mole of gas \(=\frac{{{1}}}{{{2}}}{M}{C}^{{{2}}}=\frac{{{3}{R}{T}}}{{{2}}}\) with the help of the passage given above, choose the most appropriate alternative for each of the following quetions :
Average thermal energy of one mole of helium at this temperature is (Given gas constant for 1 gram mole \(={8.31}{J}\text{mole}^{{-{1}}}{K}^{{-{1}}}\).
(A) \({3.74}\times{10}^{{{3}}}{J}\)
(B) \({3.74}\times{10}^{{-{3}}}{J}\)
(C) \({3.47}\times{10}^{{{6}}}{J}\)
(D) \({3.47}\times{10}^{{-{6}}}{J}\)
Assetion : Specific heat of a gas at constant pressure is greater than its specific heat at constant volume.
This is because at constant pressure, some heat is spent in expansion of the gas.
(A) If, both Assertion and reason are ture and the Reason is the correct explanation of the Assertion.
(B) If both, Assertion and reason are true but Reason is not a correct expationation of the Assertion.

(D) If Both, Assertion and reason are false.
