By Faraday's Ist Law

Amount deposited (m) = Zit = Zq

m ∝ q

Amount deposited is directly proportional

to charge.

QUESTION: 4

Solution:

Potentiometer measures potential current

more accurately because it measure potential

in open circuit and hence error in potential

due to internal resistance is removed.

QUESTION: 5

Five resistances have been connected as shown in the figure. The effective resistance between A and B is

Solution:

It is a balanced wheatstone bridge , so the 7Ω resistance is

ineffective.

Equivalent resistance of 3Ω and 4Ω = 3 + 4

= 7Ω (series)

Equivalent resistance of 6Ω and 8Ω = 6 + 8

=14Ω (series)

Equivalent resistance of 7Ω and 14Ω (parallel)

QUESTION: 6

A car battery has e.m.f. 12 volt and internalresistance 5 × 10^{–2} ohm. If it draws 60 amp current,the terminal voltage of the battery will be [2000]

Solution:

E = V + Ir

12 = V + 60 × 5 × 10^{–2}

12 = V + 3

⇒ V = 9 volt

QUESTION: 7

Si and Cu are cooled to a temperature of 300 K,then resistivity? [2001]

Solution:

For metals specific resistance decrease with decrease in temperature where as for semiconductors specific resistance increases with decrease in temperature.

QUESTION: 8

If 25W, 220 V and 100 W, 220 V bulbs areconnected in series across a 440 V line, then [2001]

Solution:

As for an electric appliance R = (V_{s}^{2} /W) ,

so for same specified voltage V_{s}

i.e, R_{25} = 4R with R_{100} = R

Now in series potential divides in proportion

to resistance.

From this, it is clear that voltage across 100

W bulb (= 88 V) is lesser than specified

(220 V) while across 25 W bulb (= 352 V) is

greater than specified (220 V), so, 25 W bulb

will fuse.

QUESTION: 9

A battery of 10 V and internal resistance 0.5Ω isconnected across a variable resistance R. Thevalue of R for which the power delivered ismaximum is equal to [1992, 2001]

Solution:

QUESTION: 10

A wire has a resistance of 3.1Ω at 30ºC and aresistance 4.5Ω at 100ºC. The temperaturecoefficient of resistance of the wire [2001]

Solution:

R_{1} = 3.1 Ω at t = 30°C

R_{2} = 4.5 Ω at t = 100°C

We have, R = R_{0} (1 + αt)

∴ R_{1} = R_{0} [1 + α (30)]

R_{2} = R_{0} [1 + α (100)]

QUESTION: 11

If specific resistance of a potentiometer wire is10^{–7} Ωm, the current flow through it is 0.1 A andthe cross-sectional area of wire is 10–6 m2 thenpotential gradient will be [2001]

Solution:

Potential gradient = Potential fall per unit

length. In this case resistance of unit length.

Potential fall across R is

V = I.R = 0.1x10^{-1} = 0.01 volt/m.

= 10^{-2} volt /m

QUESTION: 12

The resistivity (specific resistance) of a copperwire [2002]

Solution:

Resistivity of copper wire increases with

increase in temprature as ρ_{t} = ρ_{0} (1+ αt)

Copper being a metal has positive coefficient

of resistivity.

QUESTION: 13

Solution:

E = V + ir

QUESTION: 14

An electric kettle has two heating coils. Whenone of the coils is connected to an a.c. source,the water in the kettle boils in 10 minutes. Whenthe other coil is used, the water boils in 40minutes. If both the coils are connected inparallel, the time taken by the same quantity ofwater to boil will be [2003]

Solution:

QUESTION: 15

Two 220 volt, 100 watt bulbs are connected firstin series and then in parallel. Each time thecombination is connected to a 220 volt a.c.supply line. The power drawn by thecombination in each case respectively will be [2003]

Solution:

In series combination, resistance doubles.

Hence, power will be halved.

In parallel combination, resistance halves.

Hence, power will be doubled.

QUESTION: 16

Fuse wire is a wire of [2003]

Solution:

**Fuse wire **: It is used in a circuit to control the

maximum current flowing in circuit. It is a thin

wire having high resistance and is made up

of a material with low melting point.

QUESTION: 17

In a Wheatstone’s bridge all the four arms have equal resistance R. If the resistance of the galvanometer arm is also R, the equivalent resistance of the combination as seen by the battery is [2003]

Solution:

Since, Wheatstone's bridge is balanced, then

resistance of galvanometer will be

uneffective.

QUESTION: 18

A battery is charged at a potential of 15V for 8hours when the current flowing is 10A. Thebattery on discharge supplies a current of 5Afor 15 hours. The mean terminal voltage duringdischarge is 14V. The “watt-hour” efficiency ofthe battery is [2004]

Solution:

A balanced Wheststone’s bridge exists

∴ R_{eq} = R

Current through circuit = V/R

Current through AFCEB = V/2R

Solution:

Power = V × I

E.C.E. of chlorine is 0.367 × 10^{–6} kg/coulomb

Charge passing in one minute =

= 48 coulomb

Chlorine precipitated = 0.367 × 10^{–6} × 48

= 17.6 × 10^{–6} kg

= 17.6 mg

QUESTION: 30

Power dissipated across the 8Ω resistor in the circuit shown here is 2 watt. The power dissipated in watt units across the 3Ω resistor is
