Sources Of Energy 

CBSE Class 10 - Science - Chapter 14 - Sources Of Energy - Study Points (#eduvictors)(#cbsenotes)

Study Points

Energy:  
Whenever a body is capable of doing work, the body is said to possess energy. Thus energy is defined as the ability of a body to do work and the amount of energy possessed by a body is equal to the amount of work it can do when its energy is released.

Energy comes in different forms and one form can be converted to another. For example, if we drop a plate from a height, the potential energy of the plate is converted mostly to sound energy when it hits the ground.

A good source of energy should be:

i) Safe and convenient to use, e.g., nuclear energy can be used only by highly trained engineers with the help of nuclear power plants. It cannot be used for our household purposed.

ii) Easy to transport, e.g., coal, petrol, diesel, LPG etc. Have to be transported from the places of their production to the consumers.

iii) Easy to store, e.g., huge storage tanks are required to store petrol, diesel, LPG etc.

Magnification Chart For Mirrors

Class 10 - Physics - Light and Reflection - Magnification Chart For Mirrors (#cbseNotes)


Q: What is Magnification?

Answer: The ratio of height of image to the height of an object is known as magnification of an image and is denoted as m.

           Image height         h'     -v
    m = -------------------- = ---- = ----
           Object height        h       u
 


The +ve value of magnification represents virtual image of an object.

The -ve value of magnification represents real image of an object.


Q: Using magnification formula, prove that image formed by a plane mirror is at the same distance as object but behind the mirror. It is given that in plane mirror, object height and image height are equal.

Q1: Two metallic wires A and B of same material are connected in parallel. Wire A has length l and radius r and wire B has length 2l and radius 2r. Compare the ratio of the total resistance of parallel combination and the resistance of wire A.

Answer:
Wire A:
Length = l
Radius = r
Area   = πr²
R₁   = ρ  x l /(πr²)

Wire B:
Length = 2l
Radius = 2r
Area = π(2r)² = 4πr²
R₂   = ρ  x 2l /(4πr²) = ρ  x l /(2πr²)

Let Rₚ = effective resistance of parallel combination
1/Rₚ = 1/R₁ + 1/R₂

1/Rₚ = (πr²)/ρl + (2πr²)/ρl

Rₚ = ρl/(3πr²)

CBSE Class 10 Science - CH 14 - Sources Of Energy


Fossil Fuels Energy vs Solar Energy

Fossil Fuels Energy Solar Energy
1. Fossil energy can be used day or night. Can be used in day time. We need to store its energy to use it at night.
2. The stock of fossil energy is limited. e.g. coals will last for next 200 years. Sun’s energy is unlimited.
3. Fossil energy is non-renewable. It takes millions of year to produce fossil fuel. Solar energy is renewable source of energy.
4. Give pollution. Pollution Less
5. Fossil fuels release energy when they are burnt in air. Solar radiation carry packets of energy due to fusion reaction in the sun.

Electricity - Important Points To Remember 

CBSE Class 10 - Physics - Electricity - Important Points To Remember (#cbsenotes)

CBSE Class 10 - Physics 

Electric current is defined as the amount of charge flowing through a particular cross section area in a unit time.


The SI unit of electric current is ampere.


A stream of electrons moving through a conductor constitutes an electric current. In a conventional current, the direction of current is taken opposite to the direction of flow of electrons i.e. flow of positive charges from +ve terminal to -ve terminal.


1 A is the flow of 6.25 × 10¹⁸ electrons per second, or 1 coulomb per second.
