The density of water is maximum at …………… °C and is …………… kg/m3 (a) 0, 1 (b) 0, 1000 (c) 4, 1 (d) 4, 1000



(d) 4, 1000

Reason — Due to anomalous expansion of water, when cooled it first contracts in volume but below 4°C, it starts expanding and continues to do so till the temperature reaches 0°C, the point at which it freezes into ice. Thus, The density of water is maximum at 4°C and is 1000 kg/m3.

A weather forecasting plastic balloon of volume 15 m3 contains hydrogen of density 0.09 kg m-3. The volume of an equipment carried by the balloon is negligible compared to it’s own volume. The mass of the empty balloon alone is 7.15 kg. The balloon is floating in air of density 1.3 kg m-3. Calculate : (i) the mass of hydrogen in the balloon, (ii) the mass of hydrogen and balloon, (iii) the total mass of hydrogen, balloon and equipment if the mass of equipment is x kg, (iv) the mass of air displaced by balloon and (v) the mass of equipment using the law of floatation.
