The current amplitude in a pure inductor in a radio receiver is to be 250 μA when the voltage amplitude is 3.60 V at a frequency of 1.60 MHz (at the upper end of the AM broadcast band). If the voltage amplitude is kept constant, what will be the current amplitude through this inductor at 16.0 MHz?

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 4

I0=250μA, v0=3.6v .  v=1.6x106 Hz
Here,
(Reactance of inductance) XL=ωL
XL=2πv X L
v0/I0=2πv x L
3.6/2.5x10-4=2πx1.6x10-6 x L
0.14x104-6=L
L=0.14x10-2H
Now for v=16.0x106Hz
XL=2πv X L
=2πx16x106x14x10-4
XL=1407x102Ω
Now,
v0=I0 x XL
3.6/1407x102=I0   [∵v0=kept constant.]
I0=0.00256x10-2
I0=25.6μA

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 8

A sinusoidal voltage of peak value 283 V and frequency 50 Hz is applied to a series LCR circuit in which R = 3 Ω, L = 25.48 mH, and C = 796 μF. Power dissipated in the circuit; and the power factor are

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 8

Angular frequency of the ac signal w=2πν
∴ w=2π(50)=100π
Capacitive reactance Xc​=1/wC​
∴ Xc​=1/(100π×786×10−6)​=4Ω
Inductive reactance XL​=wL
∴ XL​=100π×(25.48×10−3)=8Ω
Impedance of the circuit Z=√[R2+(XL​−Xc​)2​]
∴ Z=√[32+(8−4)2​]=5Ω
Phase difference ϕ=tan−1[(XL​−Xc​​)R]
Or ϕ=tan−1((8−4​)/3)=tan−1(4/3​)
⟹ ϕ=53.13o
Power factor cosϕ=cos53.13o=0.6
Power dissipated in the circuit
P=Iv2R
Now, Iv=I0/√2=E0/√2Z=283/(1.414×5)=40A
∴P=Iv2R=(40)2×3=4800 watt

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 12

Transformer uses the principle of

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 12

The Voltage Transformer can be thought of as an electrical component rather than an electronic component. A transformer basically is very simple static (or stationary) electro-magnetic passive electrical device that works on the principle of Faraday’s law of induction by converting electrical energy from one value to another.

The transformer does this by linking together two or more electrical circuits using a common oscillating magnetic circuit which is produced by the transformer itself. A transformer operates on the principles of “electromagnetic induction”, in the form of  Mutual Induction.
Mutual induction is the process by which a coil of wire magnetically induces a voltage into another coil located in close proximity to it. Then we can say that transformers work in the “magnetic domain”, and transformers get their name from the fact that they “transform” one voltage or current level into another.

In the free oscillations of an LC circuit, the sum of energies stored in the capacitor and the inductor.

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 13

At any time, t
energy stored in capacitor, EC=q2/2C
Total energy stored in C and L at any time t
E=EC+EL
E=(q2/2C)+(LI2/2)
If q=q0sinωt
I=dq/dt=q0cosωtω=ωq0cosωt
Put in (i), E=[(q0sinωt)2/2C] + L(ωq0cosωt)2/2
E=(q02/2C) sin2ωt+(q02/2)cos2ωt.ω2L
But ω2=12/LC
∴E=(q02/2C) sin2ωt+(q02/2) (L/LC) cos2ωt
=q02/2C(sin2ωt+cos2ωt)
=q02/2C= constant in time.

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 15

Changes(if required): The answer provided in the forum is wrong, The correct answer would be option B.
Solution:
Given,
VR-rms =30.0V
VC-rms=90.0V
VL-rms=50.0V
To find the root mean square voltage across the source, we will use the formula,
Vrms=√[Vr2+(VL-VC)2]
=√[(30.0V)2 +(50.0V-90.0V)2]
=50.0 V

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 19

Average power supplied to an inductor over one complete cycle

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 19

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

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 20

A light bulb is rated at 50W for a 220 V supply. The resistance of the bulb, the peak voltage of the source and the rms current through the bulb are

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 20

Given    P=50W, Vrms​=220V,
by     P=Vrms2​​/R
or      R=Vrms2/P​​= 2202/50=968Ω
The peak voltage of the source is,
Erms=E0/√2
=>E0=Erms x √2=220√2=311.13V
Now,
Irms​=Vrms​​/R
=220/968​
=0.227A
Hence option B is correct.

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 21

An electric hair dryer is rated at 1500 W (the average power) at 120 V (the rms voltage). Calculate (a) the resistance, (b) the rms current, and (c) the maximum instantaneous power. Assume that the dryer is a pure resistor.

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 21

Given,
Pavg=1200W
Vrms=120 Volts
A,
The resistance is,
R=Vrms2/Pavg
So,R=1202/1500=9.6ohm
B,
The rms current is,
Irms=Vrms/R
So, Irms=120/9.6
=>Irms=12.5A
C,
The maximum instantaneous power is,
Pm=2Pavg
So,Pm=2(1500)
=>Pm=3000W.
Hence option D is the correct answer.

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 22

You have a 200.0 ΩΩ resistor, a 0.400-H inductor, a 5.0 μF capacitor, and a variable frequency ac source with an amplitude of 3.00 V. You connect all four elements together to form a series circuit. Frequency at which current in the circuit is greatest and its amplitude are

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 22

The resistance is R=200ohm the inductor is L=0.4 H, the capacitance is C=5  µF and the amplitude voltage is V=CV
The frequency depends on the inductance and the capacitance and it is given by,
f0=1/ (2π√(LC))
So, plug the values of L and C into equation 1 to get f0
f0=1/ (2π√(LC))=2/(2π√[0.4H)(5x10-6)]=113Hz
for the current, we use ohm’s law to get the current,
I=V/R
Now, plug the values for V and R to get I
I=V/R=3V/200Ω=0.015A=15mA

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 23

An LC circuit contains a 20 mH inductor and a 50 μF capacitor with an initial charge of 10 mC. The resistance of the circuit is negligible. Natural frequency of the circuit is

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 23

Natural frequency of the circuit, f = 1/2π√(LC)
here, L = 20mH = 20 × 10-3 H, C = 50μF = 50 × 10-6 C
so, f = 1/2π√(20 × 10-3 × 50 × 10-6)
= 1/2π√(1000 × 10-9)
= 1/2π√(10-6)
= 1000/2π = 500/π Hz ≈ 159 Hz

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 24

A hair dryer meant for 110V 60Hz is to be used in India . If 220 V is the supply voltage in India , the turns ratio for a transformer would be

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 24

Here Vp=220V Vs=110V
As we know the relation between V and n,
As,
Ve/Vs=np/ns ->220/110
Np/ns=2/1=2:1
Therefore, no. of turns in primary is greater than no. of turns in secondary,
Hence, it is a step-down transformer.

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 25

You have a 200.0 ΩΩ resistor, a 0.400-H inductor, 5.0 μF a capacitor, and a variable frequency ac source with an amplitude of 3.00 V. You connect all four elements together to form a series circuit. Current amplitude at an angular frequency of 400 rad/s is

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 25

Given,
The resistance is R=200ohm the inductor is L=0.4 H, the capacitance is C=5  µF and the amplitude voltage is V=CV
The frequency depends on the inductance and the capacitance and it is given by,
f0=1/ (2π√(LC))  (1)
So, plug the values of L and C into equation 1 to get f0
f0=1/ (2π√(LC))=2/(2π√[0.4H)(5x10-6)]=113Hz

The inductance reactance of the coil and could be calculated by,
XL=ωL
Plug the values for L and ω to get XL
XL= ωL=2π(113Hz)(0.4)=160ohm
To get the capacitive reactance we use the formula,
XC=1/ωC
Now, we plus the values for ω and C to get XC
XC=1/ ωC=1/2π(113Hz)(5x10-6)=500ohm
We use the inductor, the resistor and the capacitor, so the impedance of the circuit is given by the equation,
Z=√(R2+(XL-XC)2 )  (2)
Now, we use the values for XR,XL and R into equation (2) to get Z
Z= √ (R2+(XL-XC)2 )
=√ ((200Ω)2+(160Ω-500Ω)2 )
=394.5Ω
The impedance represents the total resistance in the circuit, so we can use the value in Ohm’s law to get the current amplitude I in the circuit,
I=V/Z
So, plus the values of V and Z to get I,
I=V/Z=3V/394.5Ω=0.0076A=7.61mA

A lamp is connected in series with a capacitor and connected to an AC source. As the capacitance value is decreased.

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 27

When frequency decreases, capacitive reactance XC​=1/2πνC​ increases and hence impedance in the circuit Z=√(R2+XC2​)​ increases and so current I=V/Z​ decreases. As a result, the brightness of the bulb is reduced.

a.   In RC,as
Z=√(R2+XC2)= √[R2+(1/ ω2C2)]
Therefore,
I0=E0/√[R2+(1/ ω2C2)]
=√2x100/√[1600+(1/120πx10-4)2]
I0=3.23amp
b.   In RC circuit voltage lags behind the current by phase angle Φ, where Φ is given by,
tanΦ=(1/ω)/R
=1/ωCR
=1/(120πx10-4x40)
=0.6628
⇒ Φ=tan-1(0.6628) =33.5o
Time lag= Φ/ω
=33.5π/180x120π
=1.55x10-3 sec.
=1.55ms

Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 29

You have a special light bulb with a very delicate wire filament. The wire will break if the current in it ever exceeds 1.50 A, even for an instant. What is the largest root-mean-square current you can run through this bulb?

Detailed Solution for Test: Alternating Current - 1 - Question 29

Given,
We are given the current I=1.5Am where the wire will break.
We are asked to determine the root mean square of the current Irms. The maximum current here represents the current that just after it the wire will break. The maximum value of the current is the amplitude of the current wave and it should be larger than the root mean square of the current. Using equation, we can get the Irms in the form,
Irms = Imax/√2
The term, 1/√2, times any factor represents the root mean square of this factor, Now, plug the value for Imax into equation 1 and get Irms
Irms=Imax/√2
=1.5A/√2
=1.06A.
