Option D: E will increase by 8 times. 2 Option C: According to E = (1 / 2)kx0 , doubling m does not affect k or x0. So E does not change. It The total energy E of a mass-spring system is E =

2 is not advisable to use E = (1 / 2)mω 2 x0 here, because ω will also change as we vary m (recall that ω2 = k/m).

Ans: B

Sticking the chewing gum on the back of the mirror does not cause damping, but it changes the natural frequency of the mirror. As a result, resonance will occur (“mirror shakes a lot”) at a different speed.

Ans: A

hf = Φ + K max Φ is a constant, depending on the type of metal. When the frequency of the incident photons is increased, Kmax will increase. n hf power Constant intensity, I = = t area area The area illuminated remains unchanged, so the increase in f will be accompanied by a decrease in (n/t), i.e. the no. of incident photons per unit time will decrease. As a result, the rate of ejected electrons will decrease.

35.

Ans: A

In general, the x-rays of the continuous spectrum are produced when the bombarding electrons lose their energy as they impact the metal target. To decrease the cutoff wavelength, more energetic xray photons must be produced. In other words, the energy of the bombarding electrons must be increased, and the most direct method is to increase the electric p.d. used to accelerate the electrons.
