QUESTION: 1

### Domestic power supply in India is

Solution:

Explanation:The standard voltage and frequency of alternating current supply in India is set to 220 V and 50Hz respectively by the government of India becausewhen power has to be transmitted from a power plant, the biggest challenge is to cut the transmission losses. For this purpose, the current value should be small and potential difference(Voltage) should be more. Also losses are minimal at 50 Hz/60 Hz frequency.

Solution:
QUESTION: 11

Alternating current is so called because

Solution:

Explanation:Alternating Current is the current in which the polarity of source continuously changes on a fixed frequency. So the positive and the negative terminals ‘alternate’

QUESTION: 12

Solution:
QUESTION: 16

Phasor diagrams show

Solution:

Explanation:By convention phasor diagrams are made to show the rotation of phasor in counterclockwise direction with constant speed

QUESTION: 17

For a transformer the ratio of output to input equals

Solution:
QUESTION: 18

A radio can tune over the frequency range of a portion of MW broadcast band: (800 kHz to 1200 kHz). If its LC circuit has an effective inductance of 200 μH, what must be the range of its variable capacitor?

Solution:

So the range is 88 - 198 pF

QUESTION: 19

Average power supplied to an inductor over one complete cycle

Solution:

Explanation:In the first half of the cycle, power is supplied to the inductive circuit. In the next half the inductor dissipates the energy supplied by circuit.Thus overall no power is supplied to the circuit
