Physics – Important Questions Bank for Meghalaya Board (MBOSE) HSSLC 2016 Examination

We had mentioned some tips for cracking the HSSLC Meghalaya Board (MBOSE) exam here: HSC Study Tips to Crack HSC Exams.

We had also shared Important Questions Bank for HSSLC Meghalaya Board (MBOSE) Examination 2016 and students have really appreciated it and showered us with love last year.

Today, we are posting the Physics – Important Questions Bank for HSSLC Meghalaya Board (MBOSE) 2016 Examination to make life easy for all you HSSLC students.

Without making you wait any further, please find the questions below:

PHYSICS

All questions are compulsory.

Use the following values of physical constants wherever necessary :

Planck’s constant, h = 6.63 X 10 -34 J-s

Permittivity of free space, ƹ o = 8.86 X 10 –12 C2 N-1 m-2

Permeability of free space, µ o = 4 π x 10-7 T M A -1
