Physics is the science of matter and motion. Given below are the 5 practical oriented basic physics MCQs with their answers.


In certain experimental setting air-friction is made zero. A feather and a hammer is dropped from the same certain height. Which of following statement is correct:

  1. Feather will reach ground first
  2. Hammer will reach first on ground
  3. Both will reach at same time
  4. Both will stay in air

Correct answer: 3. Both will reach at same time

Without air resistance all objects fall at same speed

Jack is passing near a well while a coin accidently slips and drops in well. The sound of coin is heard after 1 second. The depth of well is:

  1. 4.9 m
  2. 9.8 m
  3. 19.6 m
  4. Can’t predict from given data

Correct answer: 1. 4.9 m


The resistance of a 180 m long Tungsten wire having cross-section area 0.3 mm2 is:

  1. 1.56*10-05
  2. 2.88*10-05
  3. 3.29*10-05
  4. 4.54*10-05

Correct answer: 3. 3.29*10-05

Solution: R = ( ρ.l)/a = (5.60*10-8. 180 m) / 0.3 mm2 = 3.29 *10-05
