QUESTION: 1

### A dense collection of equal number of electrons and positive ions is called neutral plasma. Certain solids containing fixed positive ions surrounded by free electrons can be treated as neutral plasma. Let ‘N’ be the number density of free electrons, each of mass ‘m’. When the electrons are subjected to an electric field, they are displaced relatively away from the heavy positive ions. If the electric field becomes zero, the electrons begin to oscillate about the positive ions with a natural angular frequency ‘ωp’ which is called the plasma frequency. To sustain the oscillations, a time varying electric field needs to be applied that has an angular frequency ω, where a part of the energy is absorbed and a part of it is reflected. As ω approaches ωp all the free electrons are set to resonance together and all the energy is reflected. This is the explanation of high reflectivity of metals. Q. Taking the electronic charge as ‘e’ and the permittivity as ‘ε0’. Use dimensional analysis to determine the correct expression for ωp.

Solution: We do not want Ampere [A] in the expression. This is only possible when ∈0 occurs as square. Therefore options a and b are incorrect. QUESTION: 2

A body of mass m = 3.513 kg is moving along the x-axis with a speed of 5.00 ms–1. The magnitude of its momentum is recorded as

Solution:

Momentum, p = m × v = (3.513) × (5.00) = 17.565 kg m/s
= 17.6 (Rounding off to get three significant figures)

QUESTION: 10

Two full turns of the circular scale of a screw gauge cover a distance of 1mm on its main scale. The total number of divisions on the circular scale is 50. Further, it is found that the screw gauge has a zero error of – 0.03 mm. While measuring the diameter of a thin wire,  a student notes the main scale reading of 3 mm and the number of circular scale divisions in line with the main scale as 35. The diameter of the wire is

Solution:

Least count of screw gauge = 0.5/50 mm 0.01mm

reading × L.C] – (zero error)
= [3 + 35 × 0.01] – (–0.03) = 3.38 mm

QUESTION: 11

In an experiment the angles are required to be measured using an instrument, 29 divisions of the main scale exactly coincide with the 30 divisions of the vernier scale. If the smallest division of the main scale is half- a degree (= 0.5°), then the least count of the instrument is :

Solution:

30 Divisions of vernier scale coincide with 29 divisions of main scales Least count = 1 MSD – 1VSD  QUESTION: 12

The respective number of significant figures for the numbers 23.023, 0.0003 and 2.1 × 10–3 are

Solution:

Number of significant figures in 23.023 = 5
Number of significant figures in 0.0003 = 1
Number of significant figures in 2.1 × 10–3 = 2

QUESTION: 13

A screw gauge gives the following reading when used to measure the diameter of a wire.
Main scale reading : 0 mm
Circular scale reading : 52 divisions
Given that 1mm on main scale corresponds to 100 divisions of the circular scale. The diameter of wire from the above data is:

Solution: Diameter of wire = 0.52 mm = 0.052 cm

QUESTION: 20

A screw gauge with a pitch of 0.5 mm and a circular scale with 50 divisions is used to measure the thickness of a thin sheet of Aluminium. Before starting the measurement, it is found that wen the two jaws of the screw gauge are brought in contact, the 45th division coincides with the main scale line and the zero of the main scale is barely visible. What is the thickness of the sheet if the main scale reading is 0.5 mm and the 25th division coincides with the main scale line?

Solution: Zero error = 5 × 0.01 = 0.05 mm (Negative)
Reading = (0.5 + 25 × 0.01) + 0.05 = 0.80 mm
