The Problem Solving Assessment will be conducted for all students of class IX in Jan – Feb 2013 and the details are available in a separate circular. The `Problem Solving Assessment’ (CBSE-PSA) will be counted towards FA-4 which is 10% of total assessments of Class IX. This assessment will also be carried forward towards the FA-4 in Class X. This score will be reflected in one Language (English or Hindi), Mathematics, Science and Social Science w.e.f the session 2012-2013 for Class IX and 2013 – 14 for Class X. The same score will be reflected in FA-4 for class IX and Class X. The students will have the option to improve their PSA Score in Class X, as they can sit for the test with Class IX students of the Session 2013-2014 in January – February 2014. The best scores will be reflected in the final certificate in case of those applying for improvement. The schools which have already planned their time table and other details regarding FA-4 will take the best scores of FA-3 and FA-4 to count towards the total 10%, now available for FA-3 and FA-4 taken together.

=mgh (PE) + o (KE) = mgh After the body has fallen freely through a distance x (say), K.E.= mgh, P.E.=mg (h-x) Total energy = K.E. + P.E., mgh+mg (h-x)=mgh When it reaches the ground K.E. =½m 2gh= mgh P.E.=0, Total Energy = K.E. + P.E. =mgh Thus the total mechanical energy, which is the sum of K.E. and P.E. is always equal to mgh. Ans. 15 Sound Navigation And Ranging: A Transmitter producing ultrasonic waves is fitted at the bottom of a ship or a boat. The ultrasound waves emitted by the transmitter go to the bottom of the sea and get reflected from the bottom. These are received back by a detector also fitted at the bottom. Knowing the time elapsing between sending and receiving back of the ultrasonic waves and the speed of these waves in water, the depth of sea can be calculated. L.A. Que. 16 i) State the method of determining the valency of an element if its atomic number is given. ii) Determine the valency of the following elements, the atomic numbers of which are given in parenthesis:- Chlorine (17)- Sulphur (16)- Aluminium(13) Que. 17 (i) List three characteristics which help us to distinguish amphibian to pisces. (ii) Classify the following living organisms as cold blooded and warm blooded animals: Shark, Lizard, Sparrow, Rohu. Que. 18 (a) Explain, with the help of an example the difference between the terms. Thrust and pressure. Which one of the two has same SI unit as that of Force? (b) Consider a wooden block of mass 5 Kg and dimensions 40 cm X 20cm X 10 cm with its faces 20cmX10cm and 40cmX20cm kept on the table, in turn. In which case will the pressure exerted by the box on the table be more? Justify your answer by doing mathematical calculations. ANSWER KEY Ans. 16 (i) The number of electrons gained, lost or shared to make the octet of electrons (in the outermost shell), gives us directly the combining capacity of the element, that is, the valency. (2) (i) Chlorine = atomic no. 17, electronic configuration = 2,8,7 valency = -1 (1) Sulphur = atomic no. 16 electronic configuration = 2,8,6valency = -2 (1) Aluminium = atomic no. 13 electronic configuration = 2,8,3 valency = +3 (1) Ans. 17 (1) Amphibians lack scales, have mucous glands, have a three chambered heart (1+1+1) (ii) Cold blooded – Shark Rohu, Lizard (½+½+½) Warm blooded – sparrow (½) Ans. 18 (a) Pressing the flat end of a ball point pen against the hand with some force and pressing the pointed tip of the same pen against the hand with the same force. Pressing on pointed tip produces greater pain because the area on which same force acts decreases and the effect of this force increases. The total force acting on an area is called Thrust whereas the force acting per unit area is called pressure.-Thrust has the same SI Unit of Newton as Force. (b) The pressure exerted will be more when the block with its face. 20cmX 10 cm is kept on the table. This is equal to 2450 Nmˉ². When the block is kept on the table with its face 40 cmX20cm, the pressure is equal to 612.5 Nmˉ².
