Very short Answer Question.
- State the unit in which temperature is commonly measured.
Ans. There are three units which are commonly used to measure the temperature: Degree Celsius, Fahrenheit and Kelvin.
- What is the usual temperature range of a laboratory thermometer?
Ans. A common laboratory thermometer can measure temperature from 10°C to 110°C.
This is called the range of a laboratory thermometer.
- What are the three methods of transfer of heat?
Ans. The three methods of transfer of heat are:
- By conduction method of transfer of heat
- By convection method of transfer of heat
- By radiation method of transfer of heat
- When one end of an Iron rod is heated its other end also becomes hot soon. Name the process by which heat flows in the rod?
Ans. By conduction method.
- What is the other name of poor conductors of heat?
Ans. Bad conductors of heat or Insulators.
- Name the two types of breeze which blow in coastal areas
Ans. land breeze and sea breeze
- Which method of heat transfer does not require any medium?
Ans. Radiation method of heat transfer does not require any medium
- A person sitting in front of a room heater feels hot. Name the process by which heat is transferred.
Ans. By convection method of heat transfer.
