5. A cylindrical vessel of height 500 mm has an orifice (small hole) at its bottom. The orifice is initially
closed and water is filled in it upto height H. Now the top is completely sealed with a cap and the
orifice at the bottom is opened. Some water comes out from the orifice and the water level in the
vessel becomes steady with height of water column being 200 mm. Find the fall in height (in mm) of
water level due to opening of the orifice.

9. A silver sphere of radius 1 cm and work function 4.7 eV is suspended from an insulating thread in
free-space. It is under continuous illumination of 200 nm wavelength light. As photoelectrons are
emitted, the sphere gets charged and acquires a potential. The maximum number of photoelectrons
emitted from the sphere is A 10

10. A student performed the experiment of determination of focal length of a concave mirror by u v
method using an optical bench of length 1.5 meter. The focal length of the mirror used is 24 cm. The
maximum error in the location of the image can be 0.2 cm. The 5 sets of (u, v) values recorded by
the student (in cm) are: (42, 56), (48, 48), (60, 40), (66, 33), (78, 39). Find the data set(s) that cannot
come from experiment and is (are) incorrectly recorded.

detector is also placed in front of the wall at the same distance from it. Find the minimum distance
between the source and the detector for which the detector detects a maximum of sound. Speed of
sound air = 360 m/s.

13. A metal rod AB of length 10x has its one end A in ice at 0C and the other end B in water at 100C. If
a point P on the rod is maintained at 400C, then it is found that equal amounts of water and ice
evaporate and melt per unit time. The latent heat of evaporation of water is 540 cal/g and latent heat
