hello mam home science topic help
Mercalli scale will measure the intensity of earthquake and Richter scale is used to measure magnitude of earthquake.
allmost all of them were moderate for science student.... but following unacademy made them very easy and 100 percent answerable..... without unacademy might be 1 or 2 would not be correct.... but due to unacademy....i am unable to mark them 99 percent correct......so thanks a lot sir
15/15 Thank you sir
The Mercalli intensity scale is a seismic scale used for measuring the intensity of an earthquake
thanks Dr.sir please add questions on blood.very general but important we must know all.
1. Q226. Human beings can hear the sounds having a frequency of; a. 20- 2000 hertz b. 20- 20000 hertz c. 200- 2000 hertz d. 2- 20000 hertz

3. 0227. Ultrasonography, a common medical diagnostic procedure produces sound with a frequency of; a. Greater than 20000 hertz. b.Greater than 2000 hertz C. d. Less than 20 hertz

4. Answer: a Explanation: Ultra sound here means more than the upper limit of human ear.

5. Q228. Which type of motion produces sound? a. Linear motion b. Non-uniform motion c. Vibration d Circular motion

7. Q229. Consider the following statements? 1. Loudness of a sound depends on the amplitude of the 2. Pitch of a sound depends on the frequency of the vibrating Choose the correct statement/ statements. vibrating source. source a. 1only 2 only c. Both 1 and 2 d. None of the above

9. Q230. What do you understand by electroplating? a. The process of depositing a layer of any desired metal on b. The process of depositing a layer of any desired non-metal c. The process of depositing a layer of positive charge on any d. The process of depositing a layer of negative charge on any another material by means of electricity on another material by means of electricity. material by means of electricity material by means of electricity.

10. Answer: a Explanation: self-explanatory Electroplating is a very useful process. It is widely used in industry for coating metal objects with a thin layer of a different metal. The layer of metal deposited has some desired property, which the metal of the object lacks. For example, chromium plating is done on many objects such as car parts, bath taps, kitchen gas burners, bicycle handlebars, wheel rims and many others. Chromium has a shiny appearance. It does not corrode. lt resists scratches. However, chromium is expensive and it may not be economical to make the whole object out of chromium. So the object is made from a cheaper metal and only a coating of chromium over it is deposited
