Explanation:

## A voltmeter is a device used to measure the potential difference “Between Two

Points”. In order to measure the potential between two points, we have NO WAY
around except to connect it in Parallel.

## A voltmeter is a device of having high resistance. So, if we connect it in Series, it

would hinder the current flow in the circuit hence Open Circuit results. That’s why
we do not connect it in Series.

point in the fluid by an amount equal to the external pressure. This is known as
A. Pascal's principle C. Torricelli's Theorem
B. Archimedes principle D. Bernoulli's Theorem

Explanation:

## Pascal’s principle, also called Pascal’s law, in fluid (gas or liquid)

mechanics, statement that, in a fluid at rest in a closed container,
a pressure change in one part is transmitted without loss to every portion of the
fluid and to the walls of the container. The principle was first enunciated by the
French scientist Blaise Pascal.
Archimedes' principle states that the upward buoyant force that is exerted
on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to
the weight of the fluid that the body displaces and acts in the upward direction at
the center of mass of the displaced fluid.
Torricelli's law, also known as Torricelli's theorem, is a theorem in fluid
dynamics relating the speed of fluid flowing out of an orifice to the height of fluid
above the opening.
Bernoulli, the theorem states, in effect, that the total mechanical
energy of the flowing fluid, comprising the energy associated with fluid pressure,
the gravitational potential energy of elevation, and the kinetic energy of fluid
motion, remains constant.

A linear particle accelerator is a type of particle accelerator that
accelerates charged subatomic particles or ions to a high speed by subjecting
them to a series of oscillating electric potentials along a linear beamline.
A Cyclotron is an apparatus in which charged atomic and subatomic
particles are accelerated by an alternating electric field while following an
outward spiral or circular path in a magnetic field.
A Van de Graaff generator is an electrostatic generator which uses a
moving belt to accumulate electric charge on a hollow metal globe on the top of
an insulated column, creating very high electric potentials.

23. A device used to measure atmospheric pressure is called
A. Manometer C. Pycnometer
B. Barometer D. Hydrometer

Explanation:

## A barometer is a scientific instrument used to measure air pressure.

Pressure tendency can forecast short term changes in the weather.
A Manometer is a device to measure pressures.
A gas pycnometer is a laboratory device used for measuring the density—
or, more accurately, the volume—of solids, be they regularly shaped, porous or
non-porous, monolithic, powdered, granular or in some way comminuted,
employing some method of gas displacement and the volume: pressure
relationship known as Boyle's Law.
A hydrometer is an instrument used for measuring the relative density of
liquids based on the concept of buoyancy

The force of cohesion is defined as the force of attraction between
molecules of the same substance.
The force of adhesion is defined as the force of attraction between different
substances, such as glass and water.
Capillary Action is due to both the cohesive forces between liquid
molecules and adhesive forces of liquid molecules.

Explanation:

## The wavelength in a longitudinal wave is the distance between two consecutive

points that are in phase. The wavelength in a longitudinal wave refers to thedistance
between two consecutive compressions or between two consecutive rarefactions.
Amplitude. The amplitude is the maximum displacement from equilibrium.
