  SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATIONS OF COMMON PHENOMENA

  • The filament of an electic bulb is made of tungsten because it has a high melting point and can be heated to a high temperature to emit light.
  • A sliced apple, when exposed to air, turns brown after some time as it contains iron which gets oxidized and gives the fruit a brownish colour.
  • A wick in a stove keeps burning continuously as kerosene rises in the wick due to capillary action.
  • The earth rotates on its axis from west to east. This rotation makes the sun and the stars appear to be moving across the sky from east to west.
  • Food is cooked quickly in a pressure cooker because the boiling point of water increases at high pressure. Food cooks faster at high temperature.
  • In mountainous regions, the atmospheric pressure is less than it is at sea level. Water, therefore, boils at a lower temperature (less than 100 C) and food takes more time to cook.
  • When ice floating in a glass of water melts, the level of water remains unchanged because as a solid, ice displaces an equal volume of water.
  • A man weight more at the poles than at the equator because the polar radius of the Earth is less than the equatorial radius. Hence the gravitational pull is more at the poles than at the equator.
  • Standing in double-decker buses, particularly on the upper floor, is not allowed because on tilting, the centre of gravity of the bus gets changed and it is likely to overturn.
  • The boiling point of seawater will be more than the boiling point of pure water because the former contains salt the other impurities.
  • An ordinary clock loses time in summer because the length of its pendulum increases, and therefore, its time period also increases. The pendulum takes more time to complete each oscilation and thus loses time.
  • Whenever there is water loss from the body, secretion of saliva is reduced resulting in dryness of the mouth and stimulating the sensation of thirst. Intake of fluid then helps in restoring the loss of the water.
  • A swimmer just out of the river feels cold particularly if it is windy, because of the evaporation of water from his body surface. The evaporation is more on a windy day.
  • Alcohol is sometimes rubbed on the body of a person suffering from fever. As soon as it is applied on the body, it evaporates taking away some heat from the body. Since evaporation has a cooling effect, the body temperature can be reduced by rubbing alcohol.
  • Soft iron is used as an electromagnet because it remains a magnet only while the current passes through the coil around it and loses its magnetism when the current is switched off.
  • The person jumping out of a moving train is carried forward in the direction of the train because the person himself is in motion sharing the velocity of the train and will continue in its state of uniform motion unless it exercises some force to prevent it (Newton’s first law of motion)
  • A lighting conductor is fixed to tall buildings to protect them from the destructive effects of the lightning.
  • An electric bulb makes a bang when it is broken because there is a vacuum inside the electric bulb; when the bulb is broken air rushes in at great speed from all sides to fill the vacuum. The rushing of air produces a noise generally referred to as the “bang”.
  • A small space is left between each set of two rails of railway line to allow for their expansion in summer.
  • A bad egg floats in water because the up-thrust produced on account of displaced water by the immersed portion of the bad egg is greater than the weight of the egg.

———————————————————————————   SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATIONS OF COMMON PHENOMENA

  • Moisture gathers on the outer surface of a glass tumbler containing cold water because the water vapours present in the air get cooled and appear as droplets of water on coming in contact with the cold surface of the glass tumbler.
  • The launching of Earth satellites should be from a place near the equator to take the fullest advantage of the Earth’s movements. The regions of the Earth closer to the equator are moving faster through space as compared to regions elsewhere. Thus at the equator, rockets would start off with a speed of nearly 1600 km/hour. Further, rockets are usually fired in the direction of the Earth’s rotation.
  • In deserts, day temperatures are very high and night temperatures are extremely low because the specific heat of sand is very low. It, therefore, absorbs the heat readily and its temperature rises by a large degree during the day. At night sand radiates the heat equally readily, making the temperature low.
  • If you are sweating, you will feel cooler on a hot day than on a cooler moist day because on a hot dry day the perspiration gets evaporated quickly producing more cooling effect.
  • The air escaping from a punctured tyre feel cold because the air escaping from a punctured tyre enters a region of low pressure from high pressure and thus suffers a fall in temperature.
  • White roof keeps the house cooler in summer than black roof because white roof reflects more and absorbs less heat rays whereas black roof absorbs more and reflects less heat rays.
  • It is hotter on a cloudy night than on a clear night because clouds prevent the heat radiated by the Earth from escaping into the sky.
  • Ice wrapped in a blanket does not melt away quickly because woolen blanket is a bad conductor of heat.
  • A rose appears red when day light falls on it because it absorbs all the constituent colours of white light except red, which it reflects to us.
  • Grass appears dark in blue light because it has the property of absorbing all other colours except its own colour. The blue rays falling on the grass are absorbed by it and hence it appears dark in colour.
  • A group of soldiers on a bridge are advised not to walk in steps because their movement causes the bridge to vibrate. It they walk in step the frequency of vibration may match the natural frequency of the bridge structure, thereby causing resonance. This resonance of frequency can cause the bridge to collapse.
  • When the wind is blowing at high speed, the roofs of the hutments are sometimes blown away. The pressure at the top falls much below the pressure below the roof. This difference in pressure across the roof causes it to be blown away.
  • Human breath is visible in winter but not in summer because in winter air is cold and so water vapours present in the human breath condense, making it visible.
  • Steam causes more severe burns than boiling water because steam at the same temperature has more latent heat which causes more severe burns than boiling water at the same temperature.
  • It is not advisable to wash a clinical thermometer with boiling water because the boiling point of water is much above the maximum provided in the clinical thermometer. As a result, pressure from undue expansion of mercury may break it.
  • We experience difficulty in breathing on mountains because the pressure of the air outside is less as compared to the pressure of air inside the lungs.
  • A perspiring man feels relief when air floats by his side because the flow of air increases the rate of evaporation of perspiration from the body.
  • A thick glass tumbler often cracks when very hot liquid is poured into it because the inner surface of the thick glass tumbler coming in contact with the hot liquid expands more in comparison with the outer surface which has relatively lower temperature. This unequal expansion of inner and outer surfaces causes the tumbler to crack.
  • When a gun is fired at a visible distance, the sound is heard a little after the smoke is seen because the velocity of light is much higher than that of sound.
