 # SSPO - Shine Senior Physics Olympiad Exam - 2023-2024

## SSPO - Shine Senior Physics Olympiad

Physics is the study of energy,matter,and there interactions. It plays an important role in the future progress of the humankind. It is important to study physics at school if you have the ambition to be at the front position of enhancing technologies and theories that explains our reality.

Shine Senior Physics Olympiad is designed by Graposs Connect for Shine Olympiad to promote scientific awareness and temperament among students and encourage them to embrace the scientific way of life.

Shine Senior Physics Olympiad are focused on preparing senior students for a career in scientific fields while strengthening foundational understanding.

##### Available for classes 11th and 12th.

#### Sample Questions

###### Q.1- A point charge +q is placed at a distance d from an isolated conducting plane. The field at a point P on the other side of the plane is:
• a. directed perpendicular to the plane and away from the plane.
• b. directed perpendicular to the plane but towards the plane.
• c. directed radially away from the point charge.
• d. directed radially towards the point charge.
###### Q.2- A positively charged particle is released from rest in an uniform electric field. The electric potential energy of the charge:
• a. remains a constant because the electric held is uniform.
• b. increases because the charge moves along the electric field.
• c. decreases because the charge moves along the electric field.
