QUESTION: 103

Match List - I (Electromagnetic wave type) with List - II (Its association/application) and select the correct option from the choices given below the lists:

List 1 List 2

1. Infrared waves (i) To treat muscular strain

2. Radio waves (ii) For broadcasting

3. X-rays (iii) To detect fracture of bones

4. Ultraviolet rays (iv) Absorbed by the ozone layer of the atmosphere

1 2 3 4

Solution:

(1) Infrared rays are used to treat muscular strain because these are heat rays. (2) Radio waves are used for broadcasting because these waves have very long wavelength ranging from few centimeters to few hundred kilometers (3) X-rays are used to detect fracture of bones because they have high penetrating power but they can't penetrate through denser medium like bones. (4) Ult r aviol et r a ys ar e absorbed by ozone of the atmosphere.

QUESTION: 108

For a common emitter configuration, if α and β have their usual meanings, the incorrect relationship between α and β is :

Solution:

We know that

Also I_{e} = I_{b }+ I_{c}

Option (b) and (d) are therefore correct.

*Multiple options can be correct

QUESTION: 109

If a, b, c, d are inputs to a gate and x is its output, then, as per the following time graph, the gate is :

Solution:

In case of an 'OR' gate the input is zero when all inputs are zero. If any one input is ' 1', then the output is '1'.

*Multiple options can be correct

QUESTION: 110

In amplitude modulation, the amplitude of the high frequency carrier wave made to vary in proportional to the amplitude of audio signal.

*Multiple options can be correct

QUESTION: 111

Radiation of wavelength λ, is incident on a photocell. The fastest emitted electron has speed v. If the wavelength is changed to the speed of the fastest emitted electronwill be:

Solution:

*Multiple options can be correct

QUESTION: 112

Half-lives of two radioactive elements A and B are 20 minutes and 40 minutes, respectively. Initially, the samples have equal number of nuclei. After 80 minutes, the ratio of decayed number of A and B nuclei will be :

Solution:

For A_{t½} = 20 min, t = 80 min, number of half lifes n = 4

∴ Nuclei remaining Therefore nuclei decayed

For B_{t½} = 40 min., t = 80 min, number of half lifes n = 2

∴ Nuclei remaining =N_{0}/2^{2 }.Therefore nuclei decayed

∴ Required ratio

*Multiple options can be correct
