Physics: CUET Mock Test - 9 - Question 2

What is the use of a Van de Graff generator?

Detailed Solution for Physics: CUET Mock Test - 9 - Question 2

Van de Graff generator is used to create a large amount of static electricity. A Van de Graff generator uses static electricity and a moving belt to charge a large metal sphere to a very high voltage. As the belt moves, electrons move from the rubber belt to the silicon roller, causing the belt to become positively charged and the roller to become negatively charged. As a result, it builds up positive charge.

Detailed Solution for Physics: CUET Mock Test - 9 - Question 33

In case of semiconductor Resistivity∝1​/temperature
In this case as temperature increases electrons jump to conduction band resistance decreases R ∝ ρ(Resistivity) so resistivity also decreases and current increases.
Vibration of electrons increases with rise in temperature and hence collision between ions and electrons increases with temperature.
