Q1. What is Science? How many branches of Science are?
The world Science means to know. In other words, to consider, to observe, to calculate
the result and to done experiment on any substance in the universe is called science.
The observation, identification, description, experiment, investigation and theoretical
explanation of phenomena are called science. In short knowledge gained through
experience is called science.
The following natural phenomena’s give us the knowledge of science.
i. Colour in rainbow
ii. Dropping of an apple from tree
iii. Rusting of an iron
iv. Growing of plants
v. Motion of bodies
vi. Formation of the solar system
BRANCHES OF SCIENCE:
Basically, Science consists of two main branches.
i. Biological Science
ii. Physical Science
Q2. Define Physics. Write down the name of its branches.
The branch of Physical science in which we discuss interaction between
Matter and Energy is call PHYSICS. It is an experimental science, which mostly
depends upon “Experimental observation” as well as quantitative measurement.
BRANCHES OF PHYSICS:
In this branch, we study about the forces which are acting on matter as well as
the motion & rest of bodies.
In this branch, we study about the motion & rest of electric charge.
We study and observe the laws of electrostatic and magnetism, in
iv. SOLID STATE PHYSICS:
Study about crystalline solid in which atoms are arranged in three dimensions is
called solid State Physics.
v. ATOMIC PHYSICS:
Atomic Physics refers to study about structure, properties and behaviour of
vi. NUCLEAR PHYSICS:
In this branch we study about structure and properties of Nucleus as well as the
reaction between the Nuclei of atoms.
vii. PLASMA PHYSICS:
The branch, which belongs to highly, ionized atoms. When all electron escape
from an atom then it becomes highly ionized, the mixture of highly ionized
atom and electron is called plasma.
The study of bio-system of its structure according to physics method is known as
Study of Astronomical bodies and astronomical system is known as Astro-
Q3. Write name of Modern branches of physics.
Ans. The modern branches of Physics are as follows:
ii. Solid State Physics
v. Astro Physics
vi. Condense Matter Physics.
Q4. Write a note about the history of Physics?
Ans. HISTORY OF PHYSICS:
The history of Physics is as old as history of man Even the cave man was aware of the
production of fire by rubbing two stone together. The Chinese for the time
manufacture paper. Egyptian used to measure the flood level in the river Nile. The
people of Indus Valley were the pioneers of decimal system. The history of physics
about 5000 yrs old. History of Physics consists on three periods.
1 INITIAL PERIOD:
This period is called Greek Period which remained 9th century, the Greek are
accepted as pioneers in the development of physics as a systematic knowledge.
The names of famous scientists of this period are:
2 GOLDEN PERIOD:
This period from 9th century to 13th century. This period is called Muslim period
in which they rule as a scientist in whole world. Famous scientist’s were:
i. Jaber-Bin Hayyan
ii. Muhammad Bin Moosa Khawarzmi
iv. Yaqoob Al-Kundi
vi. Umer Khayyam
3 MODERN PERIOD:
This period is started from 13th century and still continued. This period was
initiated after the declination of Muslims. The other name of this era is
“European Period”. The famous scientists were:
i. Albert Einstein
ii. Michael Faraday
iii. Graham Bell
iv. Madam Marie Quire
v. Dr. Abdul Salaam
vi. Rutherford vii. Moseley
Q.5 Write a note on the importance of Physics.
Ans. IMPORTANCE OF PHYSICS:
i. Physics is the essential of daily life and technology as: Radio, Radar, artificial
satellite, Hydrostatic power station, Nuclear reactor, Diesel engine, firm reactor
and Computer etc. They belong to daily life as well technology. The electric
power used for domestic purposes is only due to change of magnetic flux.
ii. Laser used for treatment in medical field and Defence.
iii. Electroplating, Astronomy and Defence are working only due to Physics.
iv. Nuclear Physics is used to produce electric power on a large scale.
v. Automobile technology works on the base of thermodynamic Physics.
vi. Radar technology works on the principle of reflection and propagation.
In short, this period is totally at rest without Physics.
Q6. Write the contributions of Ibn-ul-Haitham?
Ans. i. He wrote the book named “Kitab-ul-Manazir”, about the branch of Physics
ii. He gave the laws of relfection and refraction.
iii. He explained the luminous, non-luminous transparent and transparent
iv. He described the different parts of eye.
v. According to Ibn-ul-Haitham, when light passes through a medium then it
takes minimum time to take its path. This is known as Fermate Principle.
vi. The nature of light is the form of energy according to him.
vii. He explained the refraction of light.
viii. He explained the image formed by concave mirror.
Q7. Write the contribution of Al-Beruni? Or In what way Al-Beruni was a versatile
Ans. i. He was the famous scientist of Golden age.
ii. He was a scholar, astronomer, physician, and mathematician.
iii. He wrote more than one hundred and fifty books on physics Mathematics,
iv. His famous book “Kitab-ul-Qanoon-ul-Masoodi” is considered as an
encyclopedia of Astronomy.
v. He discussed the measurement of earth, the shape of the earth, the movement
of sun and moon, the phases of the moon and the movement of then known
planets in his famous book Qanoon Al Masoodi.
vi. He gave the method of determining the longitude and altitude of place.
vii. He also determined the densities of the metals.
In the fight of above contribution, Al-Beruni is called Versatile Scientist.
Q8. What are the contributions of Yaqoob Kundi.
Ans. i. He was a famous Arab philosopher.
ii. He has 244 books at his credit.
iii. He gave the idea about specific gravity and Waves.
iv. He worked in the field of optics and explained the appearance of blue colour in
v. He explained the idea that gold cannot be made from other metals.
vi. He also explained music from scientific point of view by expressing the different
notes of music in terms of frequencies.
