Short Answer type questions

Question 7
Name two good conductors of heat?
Iron, Aluminium, Silver

Question 8
What is the lowest point of an ordinary laboratory thermometer?
Answer 0 degree celsius and -10 degree celsius.

Question 9
Why is the bulb of the thermometer made of thin glass?

As glass is a poor conductor of heat, the wall of the bulb is kept thin so that transfer of heat between the Mercury and its surrounding can take place easily.

Question 10
How is temperature different from thermal energy?


Thermal energy is the sum of energy possessed by all the moving molecules of the substance, while temperature tells how hot or cold a substance is. It is the measure of how fast or slow the molecules are moving.
Temperature indicates the level of thermal energy but it does not tell how much energy is present in the substance.

Question 11
How do we read a laboratory thermometer?


A laboratory thermometer does not have a construction. It has to be read while it is in contact with the material whose temperature is being measured. For example, to record the temperature of warm water, the temperature has to be read while the thermometer is immersed in warm water.

Question 12
How does the fur of the polar bear help it to live in the Arctic region?


Air is a good heat insulator. Polar Bears that live in the cold Arctic region have thick layers of fur. The fur traps air and forms an excellent heat insulating layer. The layer of trapped air keeps the animals comfortably warm even when the atmospheric temperature drops below -20 degree Celsius.

Question 13
Why does cold water kept in an open container become warm on a hot summer afternoon?


Cold water kept in an open container acquires heat from the warmer surrounding air on a hot summer afternoon. As a result cold water will become as warm as the air around it due to transfer of thermal energy.

Question 14
How do woolen garments keep us warm?


Woollen fibre curls and forms air pockets. The air trapped by a woolen garments is made warm by the heat from the body. This keeps the body warm. Moreover, wool is a poor conductor of heat. It does not let the warmth of the body to escape and also prevents cold air from reaching the body. This is how woolen garments keep the body warm in winter.

Question 15
Answer the following in one word each:
(a) The SI unit of heat-
(b) The SI unit of Temperature-
(c) The instrument used to measure the temperature-
(d) The transfer of heat from hotter part to a colder part of an object due to vibration of a particles-
(e) The material that do not conduct heat-


a. Joule
b. Kelvin (K)
c. Thermometer
d. Conduction
e. Insulators

Question 16
Convert the given temperature to degree Celsius.
(a) 150 degree F
(b) 48 degree F

Question 17
Convert the given temperature to degree fahrenheit.
(a) 150 degree C
(b) 32 degree C

Question 41
A liquid having a temperature of 48 degree Celsius and placed on a table acquires a stable temperature of 36 degree Celsius. What is the room temperature and what season could it be?
Question 42
Explain the construction and working of a thermos flask with the help of a labelled diagram?
How does a thermos flask maintain the temperature of liquid kept in it?


(a)A thermos flask is used to maintain the temperature of liquids kept in it. It keeps hot liquids hot or cold liquids cold for a longer time.
(b)The glass is made up of a double wall glass vessel with vacuum between the walls.
(c)Glass being a poor conductor of heat, reducing the transfer of heat from inside the flask as well as outside of it.
(d)Heat that could be transferred through radiation is reduced by silvering the walls of the vacuum flask. This reflects the heat rays either trying to enter the flask from outside or leaving the flask from inside.
