CONCLUSION: Volume of a rectangular block by vernier calipers is ____________ cm3.
QUESTIONS:
The smallest measurement that can be observed by the instrument is defined as least count.
Bring the jaws A and C in contact with each other if the zero mark of the vernier does not coincide with
the zero mark of the main scale the vernier callipers is said to have an error.
Positive error:
Bring the two jaws A and C in contact with each other if the zero mark of the vernier scale stands to the
right of the zero mark of the main scale then error is called positive error.
Negative error:
If the zero mark of the vernier scale stands to the left of the zero mark of the main scale then error is
called negative error.
In order to increase the least count of the vernier one should increase the total number of division on
vernier scale.

CONCLUSION: The value of given resistance is _______ Ω.
QUESTIONS:
It is defined as a flow of electron passing through a cross section of conductor in one second.
(1) 1 Ohm: In given circuit if 1V potential difference is applied and current flowing through the circuit is
1A then it has 1ohm resistance.
(2) 1Volt: If the work done in passing unit positive charge from one end of conductor to another end is 1
joule then potential difference is 1 volt.
(3) 1 ampere: it is defined as a flow of one coulomb current passing through unit cross section of
conductor. It is measured in Ampere.
At constant temperature, the current flowing through circuit is directly proportion to applied voltage and
inversely proportional to the resistance.
In order to measure the current with ammeter, all current should pass through ammeter so it is
connected in series.
Voltmeter has infinite resistance, hence no current passing through it. In order to measure voltage it must
be connected in parallel with resistance.
In order to control the current and desired value of current, rheostat is connected with the circuit.

CONCLUSION: The SA/V ratio for intact cube is __________ cm−1 while for cut cube it is ________cm−1 .
QUESTIONS:
It is engineering functional system at the molecular scale by using advance techniques to make complete
high performance.
SA/V changes linearly as size of the object changes into particularly shape smaller the size higher the
SA/V ratio.
SA/V ratio changes as texture of surface changes rougher the surface higher the SA/V ratio.
Rusting, Burning, Decay, Surface tension and binding Strength.
SA/V ratio changes as shape of objects changes for same volume flatter and elongated shape has more
SA/V ratio.
The amount of surface area determines the degree of reactivity of material so if we increase SA/V ratio
then this additional surface area takes part in reactivity.
