QUESTION: 1

In the circuit shown, if a conducting wire is connected between points A and B, the current in this wire will [2006]

Solution:

Current will flow from B to A

Potential drop over the resistance CA will be

more due to higher value of resistance. So

potential at A will be less as compared with at

B. Hence, current will flow from B to A.

QUESTION: 2

Solution:

Kirchhoff ' s first law deals with conservation

of electrical charge & the second law deals

with conservation of electrical energy.

Solution:

We have, m = ZIt

where, Z is the electrochemical equivalent

of copper.

⇒ m = 30 x10^{-5} x1.5 x10 x 60

= 0.27 gm.

QUESTION: 8

A current of 3 amp flows through the 2Ω resistor shown in the circuit. The power dissipated in the 5-Ω resistor is: [2008]

Solution:

Clearly, 2Ω, 4Ω and ( 1 + 5) Ωresistors are

in parallel. Hence, potential difference is

same across each of them.

∴ I_{1} × 2 = I_{2} × 4 = I_{3} × 6

Given I_{1} = 3A ∴ I_{1} × 2 = I_{3} × 6

Given I_{1} = 3A.

∴ I_{1} × 2 = I_{3} × 6 provides

Now, the potential across the 5Ω resistor is

V = I3 × 5 = 1 × 5 = 5V.

∴ the power dissipated in the 5Ωresistor

QUESTION: 9

A wire of a certain material is stretched slowlyby ten per cent. Its new resistance and specificresistance become respectively: [2008]

Solution:

Resistance of a wire is given by R l/a

If the length is increased by 10% then new

In that case, area of cross-section of wire

would decrease by 10%

∴ New area of cross-section

Thus the new resistance increases by 1.21

times. The specific resistance (resistivity)

remains unchanged as it depends on the

nature of the material of the wire.

QUESTION: 10

A cell can be balanced against 110 cm and 100cm of potentiometer wire, respectively with andwithout being short circuited through aresistance of 10Ω. Its internal resistance is [2008]

Solution:

Here hence the lengths 110 cm

and 100 cm are interchanged.

Without being short-circuited through R,

only the battery E is balanced.

When R is connected across E, Ri, V/L, l_{2}

Dividing (i) by (ii), we get

or, 100 R + 100 r = 110 R

or, 10 R = 100 r

QUESTION: 11

A galvanometer of resistance 50 Ω is connectedto battery of 3V along with a resistance of 2950 Ωin series. A full scale deflection of 30 divisions isobtained in the galvanometer. In order to reducethis deflection to 20 divisions, the resistance inseries should be [2008]

Solution:

Total internal resistance = (50+2950)Ω

= 3000 Ω

Emf of the cell, ε = 3V

Current for full scale deflection of 30

divisions is 1.0 mA.

∴ Current for a deflection of 20 divisions

Let the resistance be x Ω. Then

= 4500 Ω

But the resistance of the galvanometer

is 50Ω

∴ Resistance to be added

= (4500 –50) Ω= 4450 Ω

QUESTION: 12

QUESTION: 14

A student measures the terminal potentialdifference (V) of a cell (of emf E and internalresistance r) as a function of the current (I)flowing through it. The slope and intercept, ofthe graph between V and I, then, respectively,equal: [2009]

Solution:

The terminal potential difference of a cell is

given by V + Ir = E

V= V_{A} – V_{B}

or V = E – I_{r}

Also for, i = 0 then V = E

∴ slope = – r, intercept = E

QUESTION: 15

A potentiometer circuit is set up as shown. The potential gradient, across the potentiometer wire, is k volt/cm and the ammeter, present in the circuit, reads 1.0 A when two way key is switched off. The balance points, when the key between the terminals (i) 1 and 2 (ii) 1 and 3, is plugged in, are found to be at lengths ℓ_{1} cm and ℓ_{2} cm respectively. The magnitudes, of the resistors R and X, in ohms, are then, equal, respectively, to [2010]

Solution:

(i) When key between the terminals 1

and 2 is plugged in,

P.D. across R = IR = k l_{1}

⇒ R = k l_{1} as I = 1A

(ii) When key between terminals 1 and 3 is

plugged in,

P.D. across (X + R) = I(X + R) = k l_{2}

⇒ X + R = k l_{2}

∴ X = k (l_{2} – l_{1})

∴ R = kl_{1} and X = k (l_{2} – l_{1})

QUESTION: 16

In producing chlorine by electrolysis 100 kWpower at 125 V is being consumed. How muchchlorine per minute is liberated? (E.C.E. ofchlorine is 0.367×10^{–6} kg / C) [2010]

Solution:

E.C.E. = 0.367 × 10^{–6} kg C^{–1}

Charge per minute = (I × 60) C

∴ Mass liberated

= 17.616 × 10^{–3} kg

Solution:

QUESTION: 23

In the circuit shown in the figure, if the potential at point A is taken to be zero, the potential at point B is

Solution:

Current from D to C = 1A

∴ V_{D} – V_{C} = 2 × 1 = 2V

V_{A} = 0 ∴ VC = 1V, ∴ V_{D} – V_{C} = 2

⇒V_{D} – 1 = 2 ∴ V_{D} = 3V

∴ V_{D} – V_{B} = 2 ∴ 3 – V_{B} = 2 ∴ V_{B} = 1V
