4.

a) W = 750 J

b) W = 2250 J

c) t = 2 sec

Explanation:

4.

The formula of power is given as:

P = W/t

where,

P = Power

W = Work Done

t = Time Taken

a)

Here,

P = 750 W

t = 1 sec

W = ?

Therefore,

750 W = W/1 sec

W = 750 J

b)

Here,

P = 750 W

t = 3 sec

W = ?

Therefore,

750 W = W/3 sec

W = (750 W)(3 sec)

W = 2250 J

c)

Here,

P = 750 W

t = ?

W = 1500 J

Therefore,

750 W = 1500 J/t

t = 1500 J/750 W

t = 2 sec

According to Kinetic Particle Theory, the molecules are tightly packed with each other, by strong inter-molecular forces and they can only vibrate at their position. While, molecules or particles in liquids have lesser attractive forces among them. They can move in layers and can take the shape of any container. This is the reason why solid has a definite shape and liquid has none.
