QUESTION: 2

### In a screw gauge, 5 complete rotations of the screw cause it to move a linear distance of 0.25 cm. There are 100 circular scale divisions. The thickness of a wire measured by this screw gauge gives a reading of 4 main scale divisions and 30 circular scale divisions. Assuming negligible zero error, the thickness of the wire is:

Solution:

Given,
5 complete rotations of screw = 0.25cm
So 1 rotation of screw = 0.05
Hence, 1 main scale division = 0.05 cm
and 1 circular scale = 0.05/100 division = 5 × 10−4 cm.
Now Reading is 4 main scale and 30 circular scale divisions
So , thickness  = 4 × 0.05 + 30 × 5 × 10−4
= 0.2150 cm.

QUESTION: 3

### The B-H curve for a ferromagnet is shown in the figure. The ferromagnet is placed inside a long solenoid with 1000 turns/ cm. The current that should be passed in the solenoid to demagnetise the ferromagnet completely is:

QUESTION: 8

An ideal capacitor of capacitance 0.2 µF is charged to a potential difference of 10 V. The charging battery is then disconnected. The capacitor is then connected to an ideal inductor of self-inductance 0.5 mH. The current at a time when the potential difference across the capacitor is 5 V, is:

Solution:

Qo = 0.2 × 10 µC = 2µC

Vo = 10V
Ei of capacitor = 1/2 × 0.2 µf × (10v)2
= 10µJ
= Ef of capacitor = 1/2 × 0.2µf × (5v)2
= 2.5 µj
⇒ Einductor  = 7.5 µJ = 1/2 Li2
⇒ 7.5 × 10−6 = 1/2 × 0.5 × 10−3 × i2
⇒ 30 × 10−3 = i2
⇒ i = √3/10 = 0.17 A

QUESTION: 23

A solution containing active cobalt 60/27 Co having activity of 0.8 µCi and decay constant λ is injected in an animal's body. If 1 cm3 of blood is drawn from the animal's body after 10 hrs of injection, the activity found was 300 decays per minute. What is the volume of blood that is flowing in the body? (1 Ci = 3.7 x 1010 decays per second and at t = 10 hrs e –λt = 0.84)

Solution:

(dn/dt) = −λNo
0.8 µ Ci = −λNo
N1 = No(0.84)
v → N1
v cm3 → N1/v

v = 3.7/5 × 0.84 × 0.84 × 104 cm3
= 0.5 × 104 cm3 = 5 × 103cm3 = 5 lit

QUESTION: 24

In a meter bridge, as shown in the figure, it is given that resistance Y =12.5 Ω and that the balance is obtained at a distance 39.5 cm from end A (by Jockey J). After interchanging the resistances X and Y, a new balance point is found at a distance I2 from end A. What are the values of X and l2

Solution:

For balanced wheat stone bridge
x(100 − l1) = y × l1
So x(100 − 39.5) = 12.5(39.5)
x = 8.16 Ω
If x and y inter changed
y(100 − l2) = xl2
12.5(100 − l2) = 8.16 l2
get l2 = 60.5 cm

N2O5 decomposes to NO2 and O2 and follows first order kinetics. After 50 minutes, the pressure inside the vessel increases from 50 mmHg to 87.5 mmHg. The pressure of the gaseous mixture after 100 minute at constant temperature will be:

Solution:

2N2O5 → 4NO2 + O2
p − 2x - 4x - x
pt = p − 2x + 4x + x
pt = p + 3x

at  t = 0,   pt = p = 50 mmHg
at  t = 50 mm,   pt = 87.5 mmHg
p + 3x = 87.5
p = 87.5 − 3x
50 = 87.5 − 3x
12.5 = x

p − 2x = 50 − 2(12.5) = 25

Since K will remain same

50 = 50 × 4 − 8y
50 = 200 − 8y
8y = 150
y =  18.75
pt = p + 3y
= 50 + 3 (18.73) = 106.25 mmHg

S3 = 0.8 × 10−8
S3 = 8 × 10−9
S = 2 × 10−3
Solubility = W/V
∴ Solubility of PbCl2 in gL−1 = 2 × 10−3 × 278
= 556 × 10−3gL−1
0.556 gL−1
0.556/0.1 = 1/x

QUESTION: 60

The increasing order of nitration of the following compounds is:

Solution:

Nitration is electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction. Methoxy and amino groups are strongly activating groups.  Methyl group is weakly activating group.
Since among methyl and methoxy group, methoxy group is more reactive than methyl group, (c) is more reactive than (d).
Even-though amino group is strongly activating group, it gets protonated in presence of acid to form anilinium ion which is strongly deactivating. Hence, (a) is less reactive than (c) and (d).
Note:
The activating groups increases the electron density on benzene ring and increases the rate of electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction. The deactivating groups decreases the electron density on benzene ring and decreases the rate of electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction.

A circle passes through the points (2, 3) and (4, 5). If its centre lies on the line, y — 4x + 3 = 0, then its radius is equal to :

Solution:

Let A(2, 3) & B(4, 5) be the points through which circle is passing & radius lies on the line y-4x + 3 = 0.
Let centre be (n, k), this point must satisfy the line y – 4x - + 3 = 0. Hence
k − 4n + 3 = 0
k = 4n − 3.
So, Centre coordinates be 0(n, 4n -3)
Now, OA = OB (both one radius)
A(2, 3) B(4, 5)
⇒ OA = OB
⇒ OA2 = OB2
(n − 2)2 + (4n − 3 − 3)2 = (n − 4)2 + (4n − 3 − 5)2
n2 + 4 − 4n + 16n2 + 36 − 48n = n2 + 16 − 8n + 16n2 + 64 − 64n
40 − 52n = 80 − 72n
72n − 52n = 80 − 40
20n = 40
n = 2
Hence k = 4n − 3
k = 8 − 3
k = 5
Centre coordinates O(2, 5)& !(2, 3)
radius = OA = (2 − 2)2 + (5 − 3)2 = 2

QUESTION: 81

If a right circular cone, having maximum volume, is inscribed in a sphere of radius 3 cm, then the curved surface area (in cm2) of this cone is:

Solution:

(h − R)2 + r2 = R2
r2 = R2 − (h − R)2
R = 3
​r2 = q − (h − 3)2

h(−3h + 12) = 0
3h = 12, h = 0
h = 4.     r = 2√2.
CSA = πrl
= π × 2√2 × √24
= π 2 × √48 = 8π√3

QUESTION: 83

Consider the following two binary relations on the set A = {a, b, c}: R1 = {(c, a), (b, b), (a, c), (c, c), (b, c), (a, a)} and R2 = {(a, b), (b, a), (c, c), (c, a), (a, a), (b, b), (a, c)}.Then:

Solution:

R1 = {(c, a), (b, b), (a, c), (c, c), (b, c), (a, a)}
b, c ϵR1  c, a ∉ R1 R1 is not symmetric (b, c), (c, a)ϵR1(b, a) ∉ R1 , R1 is not transitive
R 2 = {(a, b), (b, a), (c, c), (c, a), (c, a), (a, a), (b, b), (a, c)}
∀(a, b)ϵR2(b, a) × R2
Therefore it is symmetric
(c, a), (a, b)ϵR2(c, b) ∉ R 2
Therefore R 2 is not transitive

Let S = {λ, µ)ϵ R × R ∶ = f(t) = (|λ|e|t| − µ).  sin (2(2|t|), t ϵ R, is a differentiable function}.  Then S is a subset of ∶

Solution:

f(t) = (|λ|et − µ) sin 2t          t > 0
−(|λ|e̅t − µ) sin 2t                t < 0
f ′ (t) = 2 cos 2t (|λ|et − µ) + |λ|et sin 2t t > 0
−2 cos 2t (|λ|et − µ) + |λ|e̅t sin 2t     t > 0
f ′(t → ot) = 2(|λ| − µ)
f ′(t → o̅ t) = −2(|λ| − µ)
for differentiability LHD = RHD
2(|λ| − µ) = −2(|λ| − µ)
|λ| = µ
⟹ λ ϵ R µ ϵ R t
(λ, µ)  C    R × [0, ∞)

QUESTION: 87

If λ ϵ R is such that the sum of the cubes of the roots of the equation, x2 + (2 - λ)x + (10 - λ) = 0 is minimum, then the magnitude of the difference of the roots of this equation is:

Solution:

α3 + β3 = (α + β)(α2 + β2 − αβ)
= −(2 − λ)((λ + β)2 − 3αβ)
= (λ − 2)((λ − 2)2 + 3(λ − 10))
= (λ − 2)(b2 − 4λ + 4 + 3λ − 30)
