Units and Dimensions practice paper

Question 1 Write three physical quantities having dimensions $[ML^2T{-2}]$.                            (1)

Question 2 If $g$ is the acceleration due to gravity and $lambda$ is wavelength , then which physical quantity does $sqrt{lambda g}$ represents.                                                   (1)

Question 3 What are the dimensions of $a$ and $b$ in the relation if $F=a+bx$ where $F$ is force and $x$ is distance.                                        (1)

Question 4 What do you understand by absolute error?                          (1)

Question 5 State the principle of homogeneity of dimensions. Test the dimensional homogeneity of the following

$h=h_0 + v_0 t+frac{1}{2}gt^2$                                        (2)

Question 6 Show that the maximum fractional error in the product of two quantities is equal to the sum of fractional errors in the individual quantities.                                 (2)

Question 7 How is random error eliminated? What do you mean by

(i) relative error

(ii) percentage error

(iii) mean absolute error                                             (5)

Question 8 A planet moves around the sun in nearly circular orbit. Its period of revolution $T$ depends upon

(i) radius $r$ of the orbit

(ii) mass $M$ of the sun

(iii) the gravitational constant $G$

show dimensionally that $t^2propto r^3$

Question 9 A new system of units is proposed in which unit of mass is $alpha$ Kg, unit of length $beta$ m and unit of time is $gamma$ s. How much will 5 J measure in this new system. $[5J=alpha^{-1} beta^{-2} gamma^{2}$
