1. Name any four regions of electromagnetic spectrum (other than visible light) in increasing
order of wavelength.
2. i) If a monochromatic beam of light undergoes minimum deviation through an equilateral prism,
how does the beam pass through the prism w.r.t its base?
ii) If white light is passed in the same way as in (i) above, what change is expected in the emergent beam?
3. Write five common properties of electromagnetic waves.
4. Name the electromagnetic radiation which has the highest penetrating power. How can this radiation can be
detected.
5. Name two electromagnetic waves which have a frequency higher than that of violet light. State one use of
each.
6. A glass slab is placed over a page on which the word VIBGYOR is printed with each letter in its
corresponding colour. i) Will the image of all the letters be in the same place? ii) If not, state which
letter will be raised to the maximum. Give a reason for your answer.

16. When yellow paint and blue paint are mixed we get green colour. When yellow light and blue light are
mixed, white light is obtained. Give reasons.
17. A green shirt is observed in blue light. What colour it will appear to be and why?
18. Explain why in day light an object appear red when seen through a red glass and black when seen through a
blue glass ?
19. Write the names of a pair of colours which combine to give white light. What is the name given to such a
pair of colours ?
20. A flag is made up of three strips of cloth of yellow, white and cyan colours. Name the colour of a particular
light in which this flag will appear to be of a single colour.
21. (i) White light is passed through a yellow filter. What colour is (colours are) seen on a screen plated at the
end ?
(ii) If the light emerging from the yellow filter is then passed through a red filter, what will be seen on the
screen placed at the end ?
22. What will be the colour of an object which appears green in white light and black in red light?
23. Give the approximate range of wavelengths in vacuum associated with UV rays and visible light.
24. A TV station transmits waves of frequency 200 MHz. Calculate the wavelength of the waves if their speed in
air is 3.0 × 108 m s-1.
25. Why are infrared radiations preferred over ordinary visible light for taking photograph in fog ?
26. (i) What will be the colour of a blue flower when it is seen in magenta coloured light?
(ii) Name another secondary colour of light in which the flower will show the same colour as it shows in the
magenta coloured light.
27. (i) A particular type of high energy invisible electromagnetic rays help us to study the structure of crystals.
Name these rays and give another important use of these rays.
(ii) How does the speed of light in glass change on increasing the wavelength of light?
28. A room has window pans made of a special glass which can reflect green light, transmit red light, scatter
blue light and absorb all the other colours of light. The room is illuminated with white light from inside.
What colour will thewindow pane appear when seen from
(i) inside the room,
(ii) outside the room ?
