Science Term 2 Sample Paper 2022 (Unsolved)

Class 10 Science Term 2 Sample Paper 2022, (Science) exams are Students are taught thru NCERT books in some of the state board and CBSE Schools. As the chapter involves an end, there is an exercise provided to assist students to prepare for evaluation. Students need to clear up those exercises very well because the questions inside the very last asked from those.

Sometimes, students get stuck inside the exercises and are not able to clear up all of the questions. To assist students, solve all of the questions, and maintain their studies without a doubt, we have provided a step-by-step NCERT Sample Question Papers for the students for all classes. These answers will similarly help students in scoring better marks with the assist of properly illustrated Notes as a way to similarly assist the students and answer the questions right.

14. Rin was a very curious child, The wanted to establish a relationship between potential difference across to conductor and current flowering through it. For this he sets up an electric circuit comprising a nichrome wire, ammeter A, voltmeter V, plug key K and 5 cells of same voltage (let’s say 1.5 V each)


Description automatically generated

First, he used one cell as sources of current in the circuit and noted the reading of ammeter and voltmeter. Then he repeated the above steps using two, three, four and five cells, and noted the reading which are given in the table alongside:
