(a) The lighter body
(b) The heavier body
(c) Both have equal K.E.
(d) Data given is incomplete

Q.11. The temperature at the bottom of a high water fall is higher than that at the top because
(a) by itself heat flows from higher to lower temperature
(b) the difference in height causes a difference in pressure
(c) thermal energy is transformed into mechanical energy
(d) mechanical energy is transformed into thermal energy.

Q.12. A bullet is fired and gets embedded in block kept on table. If table is frictionless, then
(a) kinetic energy gets conserved
(b) potential energy gets conserved
(c) momentum gets conserved
(d) both (a) and (c)

(a) increase
(b) decrease
(c) remains the same
(d) equal to the K.E
