a) Coolness of ice is not felt.
b) The melting point is lowered.
c) Melting point is raised and ice does not melt.

The Brainliest Answer!

This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
1) d
2)  a travel thru all

3} b no change in water level

4} KE = 1/2 p² / m    p = momentum = (2 m KE)^1/2    higher mass higher p

5]  the velocity is more when it is nearer to sun than when it is farther away.
     Because earth sweeps the same area in the same time.

6}  potential energy above surface of earth = m g height
           = 1 kg * 9.8 m/s² * height = 1 Joule          height = 1/9.8 m = 1/980 cm

7} Time period T = 1/200 sec. It means that the wave oscillated 1/T times
     in a second. frequency = 200 hertz

8)  potential energy due to volume and Pressure.

9) d.    When the temperature is -10 degrees, ice is solid. We need to wait till
         temp outiside raises to 0 deg. Add salt and then melting point of ice is
         lowered from 0 to -10 deg, and so ice melts at the atmospheric temperature
         of -10 deg.

10)  d  - for evaporation spirit takes heat from palm and so the palm cools
