Stars And The Solar System
The distance between the earth and the sun is approximately

a) 1.6 x 105 light years.
b) 1.6 x 103 light years.
c) 1.6 x 10-2 light year.
d) 1.6 x 10-5 light year.



Answer
Solution
Correct Answer Is : 1.6 x 10-5 light year.
Solution Is : 1 Light Year = 9.46 x 10 12 km The distance between Earth & Sun = 1.5 x 10 8 km = (1.5 x 10 8 km ) / (9.46 x 10 12 km / 1 Light Year) = 1.6 x 10 -5 Light Year
The distance between the earth and the sun is approximately 150,000,000 km. The time taken by the light ray emitted by the sun to reach the earth is

a) 7 minutes 20 seconds.
b) 8 minutes 20 seconds.
c) 9 minutes 20 seconds.
d) 9



Answer
Correct Answer Is : 8 minutes 20 seconds.
Solution Is :
The speed of the artificial satellites used for long distance communication is so adjusted that they complete

a) One revolution around the earth in 24 hours.
b) Two revolution around the earth in 24 hours.
c) Three revolution around the earth in 24 hours.
d) Four revolution around the earth in 24 hours.



Answer
Solution
Correct Answer Is : One revolution around the earth in 24 hours.
Solution Is : The speed of the artificial satellites used for long distance communication is so adjusted that the satellite appears to be stationary with respect to the transmitting station on the ground. Therefore, it should revolve only once around the earth in 24 hours.
On a full moon day, the

a) Moon lies in between the Earth and the Sun.
b) Earth lies in between the moon and the Sun.
c) Sun lies in between the Earth and the moon.
d) Sun lies at the top of moon and earth.



Answer
Solution
Correct Answer Is : Earth lies in between the moon and the Sun.
Solution Is : Moon does not has light of its own and reflects the light of the Sun falling on it. On a full moon day, the Earth, the moon and the Sun lie in a straight line. When Earth lies in between the Sun and the moon, light rays falling on the moon surface reach to the Earth after reflection. This condition is responsible for the complete visibility of moon on a full moon day.

a) Moon.
b) Triton.
c) Titan.
d) EDUSAT.



Answer
Solution
Correct Answer Is : EDUSAT.
Solution Is : For communication we use the artificial satellite, EDUSAT. Artificial satellites are closer to Earth than the Moon. Moreover, they neither have equatorial orbit nor polar orbit, which makes a satellite useful for different purposes.
Pole star does not change its position

a) It lies 450 north of the axis of the earth.
b) It lies on the axis of rotation of the earth.
c) It lies on 30
d) It lies close to the moon.



Answer
Solution
Correct Answer Is : It lies on the axis of rotation of the earth.
Solution Is : The pole star is situated directly above the geographic north-pole of the earth`s axis. Thus, its position relative to the earth does not change and hence, it appears stationary.
