### Class 6 Science Motion and Measurement of Distances NCERT Textbook Questions and Answers

Question 1.
Give two example each of modes of transport used on land, water and air
On land – Buses and Trains
On water – Ships and Boats
On air – Helicopters and Aeroplanes.

Question 2.
Fill in the blanks:
i. One meter is 100 cm
ii. Five kilometre is 5000 m
iii. Motion of a child on a swing is Periodic motion
iv. Motion of the needle of a sewing machine is Periodic motion
v. Motion of wheel of a bicycle is Circular motion

Question 3.
Why can a pace or a footstep not be used as a standard unit of length?
The length of pace or a footsteps various from person to person. If the length of foot- steps will be the used as standard unit for measurement of length then two measured quantity will not be same, Hence footsteps or pace is not a constant quantity and cannot be used as a standard unit of length.

Question 4.
Arrange the following lengths in their increasing magnitude.
1 metre, 1 centimetre, 1 kilometre, 1 millimetre
1 millimetre > 1 cemtimetre > 1 metre > 1 kilometre.

Question 5.
The height of a person is 1.65m Express it into cm and mm 1.65 × 100 cm = 165 cm,
1.65m = 1.65 × 100 × 10 mm = 1650 mm

Question 6.
The distance between Radhas home and her school is 3250m. Express this distance into km
1 km = 1000 m
3250 m = 325/100 km = 3.25 km.

Question 7.
While measuring the length of a knitting needle the reading of the scale at one end is 3.0cm and at the other end is 33.1 cm. What is the length of the needle?
The actual count of the length of the needle start from 3.0 cm instead of 0 cm Thus, the actual length of the needle is (33.1 – 3.0) cm = 30.1 cm

Question 8.
Write the similarities and differences between the motion of a bicycle and a ceiling fan that has been switched on.
SIMILARITIES:

1. Both the ceiling fan and the wheels of a bicycle show cirular motion.
2. Both are fixed at point

DIFFERENCES

1. A bicycle shows rectilinear motion while a ceiling fan does not.

Question 9.
Why could you not use an elastic measuring tape to measure distance? What would be some of the problems you would meet in telling someone about a distance you measured with an elastic tape?
An elastic tape is flexible and can be stretched. Thus, each time it will give different readings for the same length measured, Therefore, it is impossible to measure accurate distance from an elastic measuring tape.

Question 10.
Give two example of periodic motion Two examples of periodic motion

1. Motion of a pendulum clock
2. Motion of a swing

Question 6.
Define rest and motion
The objects which do not change their positions with time are said to be at rest. The objects which change their positions with time are said to be in motion.

Question 7.
State two precautions to be observed while measuring length with the help of a metre scale
Two precautions are:

1. The initial point of distance must coincide with the zero reading of metre scale
2. The eye should be kept in line with the point of measurement

Question 8.
Give an example for circular motion
Motion of arms of watch

Question 9.
Why do we need standard unit for measurement?
We need standard unit for measurement to make our judgement more reliable and accurate for proper dealing measurement should be same for everybody Thus there should be uniformity in measurement. For the sake of uniformity we need a common set of units of measurement, which are called standard units now a days SI units are used in science and technology almost universally.
