1. If both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.
2. If both assertion and reason are true, but reason is not the correct explanation of the assertion.
3. If the assertion is true, but the reason is false.
4. If the assertion is false, but the reason is true.

1. Assertion : Radiation is a form of heat transfer which takes place only in vacuum.

Reason : The thermal energy is transferred from one part of a substance to another part without the actual movement of the atoms or molecules.

Ans : Both assertion and reason are true, but reason is not the correct explanation of the assertion.

2. Assertion : A system can be converted from one state to another state.

Reason : It takes place when the temperature of the system is constant.

Ans : Both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.

1. What are the applications of conduction in our daily life?

Conduction in daily life :

• We cook food in vessels made up of metals. When the vessel is heated, heat is transferred from the metal to the food.
• When we iron dresses heat is transferred from the iron to the cloth.

2. What are the effects of heat?

• Expansion.
• Increase in temperature.
• Change in state.

3. Name three types of heat transfer.

• Conduction
• Convection

4. What is conduction?

Conduction is the process of heat transfer in solids from the region of higher temperature to the region of lower temperature without the actual movement of molecules.

5. Write a note on convection.

The form of heat transfer from places of high temperature to places of low temperature by the actual movement of liquid or gas molecules is called convection.

6. Define specific heat capacity.

• The amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kg of a substance by 1°C or 1K.
• It is denoted by the symbol C.

7. Define one calorie.

• One calorie is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1 gm of water through 1°C.
• 1 Calorie = 4.186 J

1. With the help of a neat diagram explain the working of a calorimeter.

• A calorimeter is a device used to measure the amount of heat gained or lost by a substance.
• It consists of a vessel made up of metals like copper or aluminium which are good conductors of heat and electricity.
• The metallic vessel is kept in an insulating jacket to prevent heat loss to the environment.
• There are two holes in it. Through one hole a thermometer is inserted to measure the temperature of the contents.
• A stirrer is inserted through another hole for stirring the content in the vessel.
• The vessel is filled with liquid which is heated by passing current through the heating element.
• Using this device we can measure the heat capacity of water. 2. Write a note on thermostat.

• A thermostat is a device which maintains the temperature of a place or an object constant.
• Thermostats used in any device or system that gets heated or cools down to a pre-set temperature.
• It turns an appliance or a circuit on or off when a particular temperature is reached.
• Sometimes, a thermostat functions both as the sensor and the controller of a thermal system.
• Examples for thermostat include, building heater, central heater in a room, air conditioner, water heater, oven and refrigerators.

3. Explain the working of thermos flask. • A thermos flask has double walls, which are evacuated.
• It is silvered on the inside.
• The vacuum between the two walls prevents heat being transferred from the inside to the outside by conduction and convection.
• With very little air between the walls, there is almost no transfer of heat from the inner wall to the outer wall or vice versa.
• Conduction can only occur at the points where the two walls meet, at the top of the bottle and through an insulated support at the bottom.
• The silvered walls reflect radiated heat back to the liquid in the bottle
