How will you know if there is leakage in a LPG cylinder?
The smell of LPG is felt

Physics Kerala Syllabus 10th Standard Question 15.
Never switch on or switch off electricity when there is a leakage of LPG Why?
It is usually advised not to switch on or off any of the electric switches if you detect a gas leakage. It is because the fumes of gas are highly flammable and even smallest of sparks can ignite a huge fire.

Class 10 Kerala Syllabus Physics Solutions Question 16.
If there is a leakage of LPG does it rise up or come down in the atmosphere? Why?
Another reason why care should be taken during storage is that LPG vapor is heavier than air, so any leakage will sink to the ground and accumulate in low lying areas and may be difficult to disperse. LPG expands rapidly when its temperature rises

Class 10 Physics Chapter 7 Kerala Syllabus Question 17.
If there is leakage of LPG it is mandatory to open the doors and windows. Why?
Immediately open all the doors and windows to your house so that the gas can escape. Never open electrical fans or even an exhaust fan. Let the gas escape naturally. Once you do that, go outside the house and isolate the main electric supply. Be sure to evacuate yourself and others from the area.

Kerala Syllabus 10 Physics  Question 18.
What precautions are to be taken to avoid accidents due to LPG leakage? Discuss and record in the science diary.

  • Examine the rubber tube at regular intervals and ensure that it does not have a leakage.
  • Turn on the knob of stove only after the regulator is turned on.
  • Always buy LPG cylinders from authorized franchisees only
  • Check that the cylinder has been delivered with the company seal and safety cap intact, do not accept the cylinder if the seal is broken.
  • Please look for the due date of test, which is marked on the inner side of the cylinder stay plate and if this date is over, do not accept the cylinder
  • Disconnect LPG regulator and affix safety cap on the cylinder when your gas stove is not in use for prolonged period.
  • Always store the LPG cylinder in an upright position and away from other combustible and flammable materials.
  • Check for gas leaks regularly by applying soap solution on cylinder joints and Surakshapipes.

Textbook Page No. 153

Physics Class 10 Kerala Syllabus Question 19.
If a gas leak is suspected or if the fire spreads on a cylinder, what else could be done? Think it over.
If you are convinced that there is a gas leak, disconnect electricity from outside the home (switch off the main switches). Switch off the regulator and shift the cylinder to an empty space. Keep the windows and doors open. Request help from the Fire Force by calling in the toll-free number 108.

Well trained rescue operators can put out the fire by covering the top end of the cylinder with wet sack to prevent the contact with oxygen. If the fire is in flat or the top story, then one should not try to escape using lifts. Only staircase should be used. Cover the nose and the mouth with soft cloth to avoid the intake of smoke or gases.

Question 40.
Sslc Physics Chapter Wise Questions And Answers Kerala Syllabus
Observe the figure. Discuss and record how hot water is formed in the tank of solar heater.
Solar water heating (SWH) is the conversion of sunlight into heat for water heating using a solar thermal collector. A sun-facing collector heats a working fluid that passes into a storage system for later use. SWH are active (pumped) and passive (convection-driven). They use water only, or both water and a working fluid. They are heated directly or via light-concentrating mirrors. They operate independently or as hybrids with electric or gas heaters. In large- scale installations, mirrors may concentrate sunlight into a smaller collector.

Textbook Page .162

Question 41.
‘Ocean as a source of energy: its possibilities and limitations’ Prepare a seminar paper on this.
Hints: Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth’s surface and represent an enormous amount of energy. Although currently under-utilized, Ocean energy is mostly exploited by just a few technologies: Wave, Tidal, Current Energy and Ocean Thermal Energy.

  • Few limited sites/places where this wave, tidal or ocean thermal energy can be obtained.
  • The cost of construction of plants is very; high
  • The efficiency of producing energy is also low.

Question 42.
Why is it said that geothermal power plants are not possible in Kerala? Discuss and record.
There are some minor environmental is-sues associated with geothermal power. Geothermal power plants can in extreme cases cause earthquakes. There are heavy upfront costs associated with both geothermal power plants and geothermal heating/cooling systems. Very location-specific (most resources are simply not cost-competitive). Some countries have been blessed with great resources – Iceland and Philippines meet nearly one-third of their electricity demand with geothermal energy. If geothermal energy is transported long distances by the means of hot water (not electricity), significant energy losses has to be taken into account. Geothermal power is only sustainable (renewable) if the reservoirs are properly managed.

Textbook Page .164

Question 43.
What are the different methods by which energy is produced from the nucleus?
Nuclear fusion, nuclear fission.

Question 44.
Even if the matter converted is very small, the energy produced is very large. What is the reason?
According to Einstein’s equation E = mc2. The amount of energy produced is high, even though the transformed mass is very less. Here’ represents the converted mass, c is the speed of light (3 x 108 m/s) and E is the amount of energy obtained.

Question 45.
What is the reason for an uncontrolled fission reation ending in an explosion?
Nuclear fission is the process in which the nuclei of greater atomic mass are split into lighter nuclei using neutrons. The mass of nucleus produced in such a process is less than of its parent nuclei. Thus there will be loss of matter in fission process. The mass lost during fission converts into energy. The two or three neutrons produced during the process, bombards with other nucleus and fission process continue rapidly and ends in big explosion.

a. Highest – Hydrogen
Lowest – Cowdung (Dried)
b. Energy released when 1kg LPG bums = 54000 kJ.
Dried cow-dung is to be burnt to obtain the same amount of heat \(\frac { 54000 }{ 6000 }\) = 9 kg
c. Biogas, because it is a renewable energy. Comparatively high calorific value.

Extended Activities

Question 1.
Find out the scope of hydrogen as a fuel with a high calorific value and prepare an essay.
The amount of heat liberated by the complete combustion of 1kg of fuel is its calorific value. Hydrogen has high calorific value and also possess high combustion rate too. Hydrogen does not create much atmospheric pollution like other gases. Therefore seek method to combust it in moderate rates and use fuel cells.

Question 2.
Visit a hydroelectric power station and
try to understand different stages of the production of electricity. Make use of this principle and find out the scope of mini hydroelectric power project.
There are only some primary expenses to build a hydrogen-electric power station. Hydroelectric power stations must be constructed only in areas of heavy rainfall and good streamflow. If these required conditions are satisfied, the production of electricity from such power station is very profitable one.

Question 3.
Visit a biogas plant and explore the possibility of establishing a community biogas plant in your region.
Generally, the biomass required to construct a biogas plant may not be available from a single house and it is not profitable to construct separate biogas for each house. We know that the social cleanliness is equally important as personal cleanliness, due to several reasons, like.economic advantages, it is necessary to run a social biogas plant. And it will be useful to more people.

Question 4.
Write a short play to make the public aware of the need for making use of solar energy.
Sun is the major source of energy available in earth, during photosynthesis the light energy is converted into chemical energy and is stored in plant cells. Since this plant reaches in animals as food, the stored energy reaches in animals too. The remainings of the animals hurried in earth transforms under high pressure and temperature and becomes fuels. Write drama using these hints.

Question 5.
Solar energy has an incredible future in the field of transportation. We are in its infant stage. Write an essay on the topic “Prospects of solar energy”.
Solar energy is the ultimate energy source. All energy sources are related and connected with solar energy in one or the other way. Expand these points and complete the essay.

Question 6.

Energy source Advantages Disadvantages
Solar energy Fuel profit High temperature
Solar power plant low pollution rate It is difficult con­struct a plant ca­nnot be used all the time
petrol It provides more energy in the useful manner More expense creates more po­llution. It gets ov­er very soon.
coal It provides more energy in the useful form More expense creates more po­llution. It gets ov­er very soon
Biogas It can be renewed less environmental pollution More expense space limitation

Question 7.
A nuclear reactor is about to be established in Kerala. What is your reaction to this proposal? Justify.
Kerala is a highly populated state in India. Therefore there are not much vacant places available for the construction a nuclear reactors here. Since the radiations given out from such power plant are very harmful to human life, it may cause unpredictable effects. I strongly disagree with this opinion.

Question 8.
A man pointing at a car running on petrol says. “This car is running on solar energy”. Write down your responses about this matter.
We use fossil fuels like petrol or diesel in cars. The plants which lived millions of year ago have also used solar energy for photosynthesis to make food. Humans and animals grew up by taking these plants and fruits. Then this humans and animals are burned in earth after their death and became fossil fuels. Fuels are formed out of them. This fuel is being used in cars so the ultimate source of energy here is the solar energy itself. The vehicles connected with solar panels uses solar energy in the direct form.
