What Do You Know About Physics? - Quiz

Physics is an integral part of science which reveals the relationship and interaction between the energy and matter. How well do you know physics? Here's a short quiz.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    3D shapes can be formed form the combination of 2D shapes

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Maybe

    • D.

      I'm not sure

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    3D shapes can indeed be formed from the combination of 2D shapes. This is because 3D shapes are made up of multiple 2D surfaces or faces. For example, a cube is formed by combining six square faces. Similarly, a cylinder is formed by combining a circle and a rectangle. Therefore, the statement "3D shapes can be formed from the combination of 2D shapes" is correct.

    According to Greek translation, "Physics" means

    • A.

      Wisdom of Worlds

    • B.

      Art of Science

    • C.

      Space View

    • D.

      Knowledge of Nature

    Correct Answer
    D. Knowledge of Nature
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Knowledge of Nature." This is because the Greek translation of "Physics" is "φυσική" (physikē), which refers to the study of nature and natural phenomena. It encompasses the understanding of the fundamental principles and laws that govern the physical world and its components.

    Someone who studies Physics is called?

    • A.

      Physician

    • B.

      Physiologist

    • C.

      Psychics

    • D.

      Physicist

    Correct Answer
    D. Physicist
    Explanation
    A person who studies Physics is called a physicist. Physics is the branch of science that deals with the study of matter, energy, and their interactions. A physicist is someone who conducts research, experiments, and theoretical studies to understand the fundamental principles and laws governing the universe. They apply mathematical and scientific methods to analyze and explain natural phenomena, such as motion, electricity, magnetism, and quantum mechanics. Physicists play a crucial role in advancing our understanding of the physical world and developing new technologies and innovations.

    The following are fathers of physics except

    • A.

      Newton

    • B.

      Socrates

    • C.

      Galileo

    • D.

      Einstein

    Correct Answer
    B. Socrates
    Explanation
    Socrates is not considered a father of physics because he was a philosopher, not a physicist. Newton, Galileo, and Einstein are all renowned physicists who made significant contributions to the field of physics. Newton formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation, Galileo made important discoveries in the field of mechanics and astronomy, and Einstein developed the theory of relativity. Socrates, on the other hand, focused more on philosophy and ethics rather than scientific inquiry.

    Which of these is a branch of physics?

    • A.

      Biomechanics

    • B.

      Hematology

    • C.

      Ichthyology

    • D.

      Cosmology

    Correct Answer
    D. Cosmology
    Explanation
    Cosmology is the study of the origin, evolution, and structure of the universe. It focuses on understanding the fundamental laws of physics that govern the universe as a whole, including topics such as the Big Bang theory, dark matter, and dark energy. Biomechanics, hematology, and ichthyology are not branches of physics. Biomechanics is the study of the mechanical principles of living organisms, hematology is the study of blood and blood disorders, and ichthyology is the study of fish.

    Which of these is a term in physics?

    • A.

      Neuro

    • B.

      Organism

    • C.

      Inertia

    • D.

      Culture

    Correct Answer
    C. Inertia
    Explanation
    Inertia is a term in physics that refers to the tendency of an object to resist changes in its motion. It is a property of matter and is related to the mass of an object. Inertia is responsible for objects continuing to move in a straight line or staying at rest unless acted upon by an external force. It is a fundamental concept in Newton's laws of motion and is used to explain various phenomena in physics, such as the behavior of objects in motion and the conservation of momentum.

    A certified physicist can apply for the following jobs except

    • A.

      Applications Engineer

    • B.

      Environment Scientist

    • C.

      IT consultant

    • D.

      Web Developer

    Correct Answer
    B. Environment Scientist
    Explanation
    A certified physicist can apply for the jobs of Applications Engineer, IT consultant, and Web Developer as these roles require technical knowledge and problem-solving skills, which a physicist possesses. However, an Environment Scientist role typically requires specialized knowledge in environmental science and may not align directly with the expertise of a physicist. Therefore, a certified physicist may not be eligible for the job of an Environment Scientist.

    What is the Physics term for "Power"?

    • A.

      Dynamo

    • B.

      Kinetic

    • C.

      Dunamis

    • D.

      Thermo

    Correct Answer
    C. Dunamis
    Explanation
    Dunamis is the correct answer because it is the Greek word for "power" and is often used in physics to refer to the rate at which work is done or energy is transferred. It represents the ability to do work or the amount of energy per unit time.

    What does "AM" refers to?

    • A.

      Amplitude Movement

    • B.

      Amplitude Motion

    • C.

      Amplitude Modulation

    • D.

      Amplitude Momentum

    Correct Answer
    C. Amplitude Modulation
    Explanation
    "AM" refers to Amplitude Modulation, which is a method used in telecommunications to transmit information by varying the amplitude of a carrier wave. In this technique, the strength or height of the carrier wave is modified in proportion to the waveform being transmitted. This allows the transmission of audio signals, such as voice or music, through radio waves.
