      P(linear momentum)

    • C.

      J(angular momentum)

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. J(angular momentum)
    Explanation
    Angular momentum (J) is the correct answer because it is the product of moment of inertia (I) and angular velocity (ω). Angular momentum is a vector quantity that represents the rotational motion of an object. It depends on the distribution of mass around an axis of rotation (moment of inertia) and how fast the object is rotating (angular velocity). The formula for angular momentum is J = Iω. Linear momentum (p) and energy are not directly related to the product of moment of inertia and angular velocity.

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Rotational Kinetic Energy
    Explanation
    The given expression, I×ω^2, represents the rotational kinetic energy. This is because I represents the moment of inertia, which is a measure of an object's resistance to rotational motion, and ω represents the angular velocity, which is the rate at which an object rotates. When these two values are multiplied and squared, it gives the rotational kinetic energy of the object. Therefore, the correct answer is rotational kinetic energy.

      Rotational energy

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Rotational energy
    Explanation
    Rotational energy refers to the energy possessed by an object due to its rotation. It is dependent on both torque and angle, as torque is the force that causes rotational motion and angle represents the amount of rotation. Therefore, the product of torque and angle directly contributes to the amount of rotational energy an object possesses. The other options, such as watt (a unit of power), angular acceleration (rate of change of angular velocity), and none, are not directly related to rotational energy.

    • C.

      Angular velocity

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Torque=Rotational Force
    Explanation
    The equation Moment of Inertia multiplied by Angular Acceleration equals Torque. Torque is the rotational force applied to an object, causing it to rotate around an axis. The Moment of Inertia represents an object's resistance to changes in its rotational motion. Angular Acceleration measures how quickly an object's angular velocity changes over time. Therefore, Torque is directly related to the Moment of Inertia and Angular Acceleration, making it the correct answer.

    Correct Answer
    C. Voltage drop
    Explanation
    Voltage drop is the correct answer because it is the term used to describe the decrease in electric potential across a component or circuit element. When current flows through a resistor, for example, there is a drop in voltage due to the resistance encountered. This drop in voltage is essential for the proper functioning of electrical circuits and can be calculated using Ohm's law.

    At what temperature Thermionic Emission occurs

    • A.

      500◦C

    • B.

      1000◦C

    • C.

      2000◦C

    • D.

      3000◦C

    Correct Answer
    B. 1000◦C
    Explanation
    Thermionic emission refers to the process of electrons being emitted from a heated surface. At higher temperatures, more electrons gain enough energy to overcome the work function of the material and escape into the surrounding space. The given answer of 1000◦C suggests that this is the temperature at which a significant number of electrons are emitted through thermionic emission. At temperatures below 1000◦C, the number of emitted electrons would be lower, while at temperatures above 1000◦C, the emission would be even more pronounced.
