Q1.       What is Science?  How many branches of Science are?

Ans.     SCIENCE:

The world Science means to know. In other words, to consider, to observe, to calculate the result and to done experiment on any substance in the universe is called science.


The observation, identification, description, experiment, investigation and theoretical explanation of phenomena are called science. In short knowledge gained through experience is called science.

The following natural phenomena’s give us the knowledge of science.

i.          Colour in rainbow

ii.          Dropping of an apple from tree

iii.         Rusting of an iron

convert basic units into practical units and vice versa. This difficulty was removed in

MKSA (meter-kilogram-second-ampere) system, in which ampere was adopted as a

fundamental electrical unit. This MKSA system had been internationally adopted and

called S.I. System.

Such relation between two physical quantities in which one is increased other is also

increased, and similarly when one is decreased, the other is decreased, is called Directly

Proportional. The Graph of such relation is always in straight line. Graph of Directly


Example: V  a T

This equation shows the relation of directly proportional between Volume and

Absolute Temperature.


If one physical quantity is increasing, then the other is decreasing , and if one were

decreasing, the other would be increasing then this relation is termed INVERSLY



If volume and pressure are two physical quantities. Then the relation between them is

V  a 1/P

Graph of Inversely Proportional:

The graph of inversely proportional relation between two physical quantities is always

forms a curve shape.


To change the symbol of inversely or directly proportional between two physical

quantities. We must use a symbol (K), which is called Proportional Constant.


V a T           V  =   KT

Where  a is a symbol of directly proportional

in this case K is proportional constant.

Q15.     What is a Graph?

Ans. It the way of showing the nature of relation between two physical quantities either it is

straight or in curve path.

origin to upward direction and negative

from origin to downward.

vi.         The value x-axis is always negative from origin

to left side and positive from origin to right.

vii.        All positive and negative value constructed on graph in small points. Then these

points are joined with each other and get the graph.

Ans. There are three types of errors, which are as follows:

i.          Personal Error.

ii.          Systematic Error.

iii.         Random Error.

i           PERSONAL ERROR:

This error occurs when the instruments are used improperly.


If difference between actual and experimental reading is due to the fault of the

measuring instrument then it is called Systematic Error.

iii.        RANDOM ERROR:

If difference between actual and experimental reading is due to change in physical

state then it is called Random Error.

Q20.     What is meant by Correction?


If difference between actual and experiment reading is more and more minimized,

then it is called Correctness. This can be done only when we use the instrument

properly and remove their fault, stop the change of physical state.
