b. Diffusion takes place in haphazard and random way.
c. SI unit of pressure is Pascal.
d. A gas is highly incompressible fluid.
e. Solids and liquids can be identified from their characteristic melting and boiling points.


Q3: Zig-zag movement of the solute particle in a solution is known as 
(a) Linear motion
(b) Circular motion
(c) Brownian motion
(d) Curved motion.

Q4: Gases can be liquified by

(c) ratio of mass and temperature
(d) product of mass and temperature

Q6: Which of the following is not matter
(a) Blood
(b) Humidity
(c) Electron
(d) Moon rock

Q7: Which is more effective in cooling?
(a) Ice at 0° C
(b) Water at 0° C
(c) Water at 100° C
(d) Ice at 100° C

Q8: 0° C temperature is equal to

(d) 300 K

Q9: The process involving the change of state from solid to gas is called
(a) melting
(b) boiling
(c) sublimation

  2. Hey unknown the si unit of pressure is pascal for ur kind information

  3. Ur questions are brilliant and I solve all correctly

  4. Excellent for IIT
    Thank u!!!

  5. how humidity is not a matter?

    1. Beoz... humidity is not a factor of evaporation

  6. Give some more about the chapter paper
