70 Physics Teacher Questions and Answers:

1 :: Tell me what are the skills required for physics teacher employee in order to success in his work?

Talking to others to convey information effectively, Understanding written sentences and paragraphs in work related documents, Understanding the implications of new information for both current and future problem-solving and decision-making, Teaching others how to do something, Communicating effectively in writing as appropriate for the needs of the audience.

2 :: Tell me what are the properties of fourth matter Plasma?

After Solid, liquid and gas there is one more matter that exists known as Plasma. Properties of Plasma are

☛ Plasma has neither a definite shape nor a definite volume
☛ Plasma often seen in ionized gases, and heating produces it and ionizing a gas
☛ Free electrical charges which are not bound to atoms or ions can cause plasma to be electrically conductive
☛ Some of the examples of plasma are lightning, stars, inside fluorescent lights and neon signs

3 :: Suppose I don't get the position, is it OK to ask for feedback?

Yes. In fact, I highly encourage you to take this action, for a number of reasons. First of all, you do want to know why you didn't get the job, and often the decision-maker will give you truthful insight. This is especially likely if you networked with her or him before you applied, or when you interviewed for the position you had especially good rapport). The reason you were not selected might have nothing to do with you (perhaps they had to hire someone else for timing or because they are the boss's brother-in-law). Or it might be that another candidate had a superior set of skills and experience. Alternatively, if it was a reason relating to your interview performance, you want to know this so you can remedy it for the future.

Your request for feedback also shows the interviewer that you are interested in their opinion, and, by extension, that you are still committed to the company. So in the course of asking for feedback, be gracious, thank them for their candor, and clearly indicate that you are still interested in working for this organization and hope to help them in a future capacity.

Finally, people respond positively to those who show they want to improve. After all, successful workers seek opportunities to develop skills and improve the circumstances and skills of their team. By sharing your desire to learn how you might have erred in the interview, you demonstrate this important attribute and you keep the door open for you to come back, perhaps for a different job, or perhaps for the same job should the successful candidate not work out.

☛ It moves at a constant velocity
☛ It has zero mass and rest energy
☛ When exposed (absorbed/emitted) to radiation it can be destroyed or created
☛ With the electron and another particle it will show particle like interaction
☛ It carries energy and momentum

8 :: Explain what is the speed of light in space?

In the space, light travels at a speed of 186,282 miles per second and sunlight takes about 8 min and 19 sec to reach the surface of the earth.

9 :: Tell me at the end of the interview when they ask "do you have any questions for us?", what should I ask?

Your response will depend on the position and the sector, but in all cases, when they ask you if you have any questions, you should definitely have some ready. The interviewer wants to see if you have done your homework about the organization and are committed to them specifically, so feel free to ask questions about current projects, products, or services that you read about in your research. For an academic job, make sure you ask questions about the department: how it interacts with others, or how interdisciplinary research is supported and fostered, for example.

10 :: Explain what do I do when I receive two equally good offers around the same time, but one is for a short-term job, such as a postdoc, and the other is for a longer-term duration, such as a permanent job in a company?

You will have to make a personal choice. Make sure you have all the information about each offer in order to make an informed decision. Carefully compare the offers analyze the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) associated with each position. What strengths will you be able to leverage and expand? What are the position's weaknesses, and can they be remedied? What opportunities will come your way to improve and learn skills, gain access to new networks, and collaborate with professionals? What threats might there be to your career? That is, could you lose time away from what you really want to do? Is it in a location that for one reason or another can't work for you? These questions apply to both short-term and permanent positions.

You might also choose to tell the interviewer that you have received other offers and that you are carefully weighing your options. However, if you do this, your interviewer might think you are employing a negotiation tactic.
