Answer 4.
No weight, as the body is experiencing the force due to gravity.

Answer 5.
Relative density of gold = 19.3
Relative density of gold = \(\frac { Densityofgold }{ Densityofwater }\)
∴ Density of gold = Relative density of gold × Density of water
= 19.3 × 103 kg/m3
= 19300 kg/m3

Answer 6.
The density of water is more than oil. Hence the buoyant force exerted by water on the object is more than by oil. Therefore among two identical pieces, one piece will float in water and the other sinks in oil.
Oil will float on water as its density is less than water. Therefore, oil will form the topmost layer.

  2. Valency of X is 1.
  3. CX4 and NaX

Answer 8.
At 273 K or 0°C, ice will have more cooling than water because it can absorb more heat than water due to its latent heat of fusion. Water at the same temperature does not hold the latent heat of fusion, that is the hidden heat which is present in ice and thus it cannot absorb heat more than ice and will have less cooling effect.

  • Boiling test of water: Pure water has fixed boiling point of 100 degree Celsius. If a liquid boils at this temperature, then it is water.
  • On boiling a sample of water all the water should evaporate and nothing is left behind, no salt or residue.
  • pH test and freezing point: The pH of water is 7, freezing point of water is 0 degree Celsius. If a liquid freezes at 0 degrees, then it is water.

Answer 9.

  • Nuclear membrane: It is a membrane made up of double layer of lipid and it is also called as the envelope that protects the nucleus in the cell.
  • Mitochondria: It is called the powerhouse of the cell as it stores energy in the form of ATP. It regulates the metabolism.
  • Ribosomes: It helps in making of proteins in the cell. Protein is needed for many cell functions such as repairing, damage or directing the chemical processes.

Answer 10.

  1. Earthworm: Annelids, as their body is segmented.

Answer 11.
CBSE Sample Papers for Class 9 Science Paper 7 Q.11

Answer 12.

  1. Atomic mass unit: A unit of mass used to express atomic and molecular weights, equal to one twelfth of the mass of an atom of carbon-12 isotope.
  2. Molecular mass: Molecular mass of a compound is the mass of of its one molecule. This is measured in atomic mass unit (amu). 1 atomic mass unit is the one twelfth of the mass of an atom of C-12 isotope. When the mass of a molecule is divided by the mass of one twelfth of the mass of an atom of C-12 isotope, its relative mass is obtained.
    • Molar mass: This is also known as molecular weight. It is the mass of a substance for a given amount. The S.I. unit for the molar mass is g mol-1. This gives the amount of the atoms/molecules/ions present in one mole of a substance.
    • Diatomic molecule of compound: A molecule of a compund with two atoms, e.g. MgO, NaCl.
    • Triatomic molecule of compound: A molecule of a compound with three atoms, e.g. CO2, H2O.

Answer 13.

  1. While moving in a bus our body is in the state of motion. On jumping out of a moving bus our feet touches the ground and came to rest, while the upper part of our body stays in motion and moves forward due to inertia of motion and hence we can fall in forward direction.
  2. While catching a fast moving cricket ball, a fielder on the ground gradually pulls his hands backwards with the moving ball. This is done so as to increase the time during which the high velocity of the moving ball decreases to zero. Thus, the acceleration of the ball is decreased and so the impact of catching the fast moving ball is reduced.
  3. A karate player applies the blow with a large velocity in a very short interval of time on the ice slab, which therefore exerts a large amount of force on it and suddenly breaks the ice slab.

Answer 14.
Frequency of the signals = 400 MHz
= 400 × 106 Hz
Velocity of the waves = 3 × 108 m/s
Wavelength of the radio waves = ?
We know, Speed = Wavelength × Frequency
CBSE Sample Papers for Class 9 Science Paper 7 Q.14

Answer 15.
Power is the rate of doing work i.e. the amount of work done per unit time.
S.I. unit: Watt
If a bulb is rated 15 watts, it means it consumes 15 joules per second.
Therefore, power = \(\frac { Energy }{ Time }\)
So, Energy = Power × Time
Therefore energy consumed by the bulb is 15 × (10 × 60) seconds
= 15 × 600
= 9000 Joules

Answer 16.
(i) OA – uniform acceleration, AB – zero acceleration/constant velocity.
(ii) 20 ms-1 : zero/body comes to rest.

Answer 17.

  1. Vaccine is a chemical/drug given in advance to an individual to give immunity to the body against certain diseases.
    Two vaccines given to children are:

    • BCG – for tuberculosis prevention
    • Polio drops – for polio prevention
  2. Penicillin is an antibiotic that blocks the bacterial processes to build the cell wall. Due to this drug, the bacteria is unable to make a protective cell wall and dies easily. It is used to cure the diseases and infections caused by bacteria.

Answer 18.
Crop variety improvement methods came to the rescue of the farmers, facing repeated crop failures in the following ways:

  1. Improved quality of crops are obtained in higher yield.
  2. The cost of production is reduced & there is uniform maturity of crops which makes harvesting process easier & reduces loss during harvesting.
  3. Crops with desirable agronomic characteristics are obtained having wider adability to the climatic conditions.
  4. Soil fertility is maintained and there is no or minimum weeds.

Three factors for which farmers can do crop variety improvement are:

  1. Develop biotic and abiotic resistance
  2. Wider adaptability
  3. Early and uniform maturity

Most common method is Hybridisation, which involves crossing between two varieties having genes for the desired characteristics and bringing them together into a new variety called the hybrid.

Answer 19.
‘Energy possessed by an object by virtue of its position or configuration. ’ (To be explained in candidate’s own words.)
Example: Stretched string of bow/ a stone lifted to a certain height (or any other appropriate example).
S.I. unit – Joule
Potential Energy, PE. = mgh
As the object falls, m = 20 kg g = 10 m/s2 h = 10 m
∴ P.E = mgh
= 20 kg × 10 m/s2 × 10 m
P.E = 2000 J
Its P. E. gets converted to K. E.
Kinetic energy just before it touches = 2000 J

Answer 20.

Answer 22.
Cylinder A with the minimum least count will be used to find the volume of a cube with very small dimensions.

Answer 23.
The raisins soaked in B will have absorbed more water as the temperature of water is higher and as the osmosis process will be more in B than in A, since the temperature of water in A is less.

Answer 24.
In all the three cases the result obtained will be incorrect. This is because the water in the overflow can should be filled upto the outlet brim.

Answer 25.
Cockroach has a hard exoskeleton that serves many functions, including protection from water loss and physical injury and internally aids in muscle attachment, which results in tremendous leverage and strength. It also undergoes hibernation during unfavourable conditions.

Answer 26.
The commonly used adulterants in food are:

  • Black pepper: dry seeds of papaya
  • Honey: jaggery
  • Red chilli powder: red brick powder
  • Mustard seed: argemone seeds

Answer 27.
The bottle with glycerine would be heavier because its mass is greater than water. The density of a substance is directly proportional to the mass of the body. The density of glycerine is 1.26 g/cc and that of water is 1 g/cc.
