50V  battery is supplying current of 10 amp when connected to a resistor. If the efficiency of battery at this current is 25%. Then internal resistance of battery is :


50 = 10[R + r]

The correct answer is: 3.75Ω


A cell of emf E having an internal resistance ‘r’  is connected to an external resistance R. The potential difference ‘V’ across the resistance R varies with R as shown by the curve :


The correct answer is: B


n’  identical light bulbs, each designed to draw P power from a certain voltage supply are joined in series and that combination is connected across that supply. The power consumed by one bulb will be :


For series combination, the total power is:
1/Pt = 1/P1 + 1/P2 +.........+1/Pn
= 1/P + 1/P +..............+ upto n
= n/P
Therefore, Pt = P/n


A copper sphere of 10cm  diameter is lowered into a water filled hemispherical copper vessel of 20cm  diameter so that the sphere and the vessel becomes concentric. Electrical conductivity of water of  σ = 10-3(Ωm)-1. The electrical resistance between the sphere and the vessel is :


The arrangement is shown in figure. Consider the hemispherical shell of radius r and thickness dr as shown.

The correct answer is: 1591.6Ω


When a galvanometer is shunted with a 4Ω resistance, the deflection is reduced to one-fifth. If the galvanometer is further shunted with a 2Ω wire, the further reduction (find the ratio of decrease in current to the previous current) in the deflection will be (the main current remains the same).


Case I

Case II

so decrease in current to previous current

The correct answer is: (8/13) of the deflection when shunted with 4Ω only


In the circuit shown, the value of R in ohm that will result in no current through the 30V battery, is:]


Potential drop across R = Potential drop across AB

The correct answer is: 30Ω


In the shown wire frame, each side of a square (the smallest square) has a resistance R. The equivalent resistance of the circuit between the points A and B is :



Hence equivalent resistance between A  and B  is 2R.

The correct answer is: 2R


Two long coaxial and conducting cylinders of radius a and b are separated by a material of conductivity σ and a constant potential difference V  is maintained between them, by a battery. Then the current, per unit length of the cylinder flowing from one cylinder the other is:


 where is the linear charge density on the inner cylinder

Current per unit length will be :


A cylindrical solid of length and radius a  is having varying resistivity given by  ρ = ρ0x  where ρ0 is a positive constant and x is measured from left end of solid. The cell shown in the figure is having emf V and negligible internal resistance. The electric field as a function of x is best described by :


Consider an elemental part of solid at a distance  x  from left end of width dx.
Resistance of this elemental part is,

Current through cylinder is, 
Potential drop across element is,  


In a practical wheat stone bridge circuit as shown, when one more resistance of 100Ω is connected is parallel with unknown resistance x, then ratio ℓ1/ℓ2 become 2, ℓ1 is balance length. AB is a uniform wire. Then value of x  must be :


∵  wheat stone bridge is in balanced condition

The correct answer is: 100Ω
