Assertion (A): In steady state condition, the energy consumed is infinite for both inductor and capacitor.
Reason (R): The current i in the capacitor and voltage v\n the inductor are zero in steady state.
Assertion is false because energy consumed is zero in steady state since capacitor acts as open circuit (i = 0) and inductor acts as short-circuit (v = 0) in steady state.
Assertion (A): If the voltage across the capacitor being constant, current through it is zero.
Reason (R): On application of dc voltage and with no initial charge, the capacitor first acts as short circuit but as soon as the full charge it retains, the capacitor behaves as open circuit.
A 10 μF capacitor is charged full by 100 V dc source. It is then connected across an uncharged capacitor of 50 μF capacity. The energy stored in the two capacitors in the final state will be
Given, C1 = 10μF
and C2 = 50 μF; V = 100 volt
Initial energy stored in the capacitor of 10 μF is
= 0.05 Joules
The initial charge,
Qin = CV = 10 x 10-6 x 100
= 0.001 Coulomb
When this 10 μF capacitor is connected across the unchanged capacitor, let the final voltage be V' volt.
where, Q is the final charge and C is the final capacitance.
Now, Q = Qin = 0.001 Columb
and Ceq = C - C1 + C2
= 10 + 50 = 60 μF
Hence, final voltage
= 0.0014 J = 1.4 mJ
= 0.007 J = 7 mJ
For the bridge circuit shown below, the charge accumulated in the capacitor under steady state condition is
Under steady state condition, the capacitor will acts as open circuit.
Let the voltage across capacitor be VC in steady state.
Then, VC = - 8I1 + 4I2
= - 8 x 1 + 4 x 2
= - 8 + 8 = 0
Hence, charge accumulated in the capacitor is
Q = CVC = (100 μF) x 0 = 0
A current of i = 300t is suddenly applied to an inductance of 1 mH. The induced voltage will be

A 100-turn coil has an inductance of 6 mH. if the number of turns is increased by 200%, all other quantities remaining the same, the inductance will be
∴ L ∝ N2
Since N is increased by 200% i.e. N is doubled therefore, new value of L is
L' = 4 X L
= 4 x 6 = 24 mH

Which of the following statements associated with capacitor is wrong?
Statement (b) holds true for an inductor not for a capacitor.
Potential difference across a capacitor of capacitance of 20 μF is increased uniformly from 0 to 240 V in 1 second. The charging current will be
Assertion (A): Lower the self inductance of a coil more the delay in establishing steady current through it.
Reason (R): An inductor opposes a sudden change in current.
Lower the self inductance of a coil less the delay in establishing steady current through it because lower will be the inductive reactance which will offer less opposition to the flow of current.
Hence, assertion is false.
An open coil has
A coil acts as open circuit i.e I = 0 if R = ∞ or L = 0 (so that XL = 0Ω).
Consider the following statements regarding an inductor:

2. An inductor is a sort of open circuit to dc.
3. An inductor never dissipates energy but only stores it.
4. A finite amount of energy can be stored in an inductor even if voltage across it is zero, such as when the current through it is constant.

An inductor acts as open circuit to dc (as f = 0 for dc so that XL = 0Ω).
Assertion (A): A capacitor can store charge.
Reason (R): The plates of the condenser are conductive.
Assertion (A): It is impossible to change the current through an inductor by finite amount in zero time.
