There is a uniform magnetic field directed into the plane of the paper of magnitude 0.5 T. A force of 0.5N to the left is required to keep the wire PQ moving with constant speed to the right. With what speed is the wire PQ moving? (Neglect self-inductance of the loop)


Solving V = 16 m/s.


In the given figure a ring of mass m is kept on a horizontal surface while a body of equal mass 'm' attached through a string, which is wounded on the ring. When the system is released the ring rolls without slipping. Consider the following statements and choose the correct option.

(i) acceleration of the centre of mass of ring is g/3
(ii) acceleration of the hanging particle is 2g/3
(iii) frictional force (on the ring) acts along forward direction
(iv) frictional force (on the ring) acts along backward direction


Free body diagram of ring and mass is 

Since the ring is in pure rolling so its above point acceleration will be 2a and similarly acceleration of mass will be 2a.
The equation of motion of the system is
mg – T = m(2a)      ......(1)
T = ma        .......(2)
Substitute the value of T in equation (1)
mg - ma = 2ma
3ma = mg
a = g/3
So the acceleration of the center of the ring is, g/3
And acceleration of the hanging mass is 2a = 2g/3

A spring mass system with unequal masses is placed at rest on a smooth horizontal surface. The spring is initially kept compressed with a thread. When the spring is cut, the mass m moves so as to enter in a vertical circular loop of radius r. The minimum compression x in the spring so that the mass m may negotiate the vertical loop is


Let x be the compression in the spring, v and V be the velocities of m and M respectively, when the spring released.
According to the law of conservation of momentum and energy
MV = mv ... (1)

From (2) and (1)

To negotiate a loop, minimum velocity required

A charge particle q of mass m0 is projected along the y-axis at t = 0 from origin with a velocity V0. If a uniform electric field E0 also exists along the x-axis, then the time at which the de-Broglie wavelength of the particle becomes half of the initial value is:


Force on charged particle is =qE0 in x direction.
At any time t velocity in y direction will be same as at t=0 as there is no force in that direction.
At time t velocity in x direction is given by
vx =axt
vx =(qE0/m)t
so speed of particle at time t is- 
debroglie wavelength is inversly proportional to speed of particle and given by- 
(Where R is a constant)
So for half the wavelength speed should be doubled.


The beat frequency produced when the following two waves x1 = 12 sin (484πt − 7πx) and x2 = 12 sin (480πt − 7πx) are sounded together is


x1 = 12 sin (484 πt − 7 π x)

∴ frequency n1 = 242 Hz
x2 = 12 sin (480 πt − 7 πx) 
∴ frequency n2 = 240 Hz
Beat frequency = n1 − n2 = 2

Steam at 100°C is passed into 1.4 kg of water kept in a calorimeter of water equivalent 0.03 kg at 20 °C till the temperature of the calorimeter and contents reach 80°C. Latent heat of steam is 2.26 × 106 J kg − 1 and sp.heat capacity of water is 4200 J /kg/°C. The mass of steam condensed in kilogram is nearly equal to


(M + Mw) C(80-20) = mL + mC(100 − 80)
(1.4 + 0.03) 4200 (80 − 20)= m × 2.26 × 106 + m × 4200 × 20
1.43 × 4200 × 60= m (2.26 × 106 + 4200 × 20)

In Young’s double slit experiment, a monochromatic light of wavelength 5500 Å is used. The slits are 2 mm apart. The fringes are formed on a screen placed 20 cm away from the slits. It is found that the interference pattern shifts by 16 mm when a transparent plate of thickness 0.4 mm is introduced in the path of one of the slits. The refractive index of the transparent plate is


Δy = 16 mm = 16 × 10− 3 m
d = 2 mm = 2 × 10− 3 m λ = 5500 Å
D = 20 cm = 0.2 m
t = 0.4 mm = 4 × 10− 4 m

∴ μ = 1 + 0.4 = 1.4

Ratio of Boyle temperature and critical temperature of gas is:


Boyle Temperature Tb= a/Rb
Critical Temperature Tc= 8a/27Rb
Dividing both
Tb/Tc =27/8
Hence option (b) is correct.


Which of the following is reducing sugar?


A reducing sugar is one which is capable of acting as reducing agent.
All monosaccharaides are reducing sugars because all monosaccharaides have an aldehyde group (if they are aldoses) or can tautomerize in solution to form an aldehyde group (if they are ketoses) and can themselves get oxidized hence can act as reducing agent.

All of them are monosaccharides.
Hence option (d) is correct.


Which of the following complex square having planner complex can exhibit geometrical isomerism?



Cis –isomer
Square planar complexes having symmetric bidentate ligands carrying one or more substituents can form geometrical isomers. Because, such ligand show kind of asymmetry. Here pn (propylenediamine) shows this kind of nature hence leading to geometrical isomerism.
All the rest options are of symmetrical in nature around metal ion so no geometrical isomerism is possible in these.
Hence option (a) is correct.


An element has a bcc structure with a cell edge of 288 pm. The density of the element is 7.2 g cm–3. Number of atoms present in 208 g of the element ?


Volume of unit cell = (288 pm)3 = (288 × 10–12 m)3
= (288 × 10–10 cm)3
=2.39 × 10–23 cm3
For bcc, zeff = 2

∴ Aw = 7.2 × 3 × 1023 × 2.39 × 10–23 g
∴ 7.2 × 3 × 2.39 g of element contains = NA atoms = 6 × 1023 atoms.
∴ 208 g of the element contains 
= 24.17 × 1023 atoms
Volume of 208 g of the element 
=28.88 cm3
Number of unit cells in this volume

= 12.08 × 1023 unit cells
Since each bcc cubic unit contains 2 atoms, therefore the total number of atoms in 208 g
= 2 (atoms/unit cell) × 12.08 × 1023 unit cells
= 24.16 × 1023 atoms
Hence option (b) is correct.


The most acidic oxyacid of halogen among the given option is


The acidity of oxyacids of halogen can be compared by checking the oxidation state of halogen in the acid. Higher the oxidation state, higher the acidity. Here H5IO6 has an oxidation state of +7 and hence is the strongest acid.


The Clark cell Zn|Zn2+// Hg2SO4|Hg is often employed as a standard cell since its emf is known exactly as a function of temperature. The cell emf is 1.423 V at 298 K and its temperature coefficient of voltage is -1.2 × 10-4 V K-1. What is ΔScell at 298 K?


Before we commence, we note that the spontaneous cell reaction is

so the cell reaction is a two-electron process.
Gcell = -nF × emf .
Inserting values for the cell at 298 K gives

Hence option (a) is correct.


Which of the following is incorrect statement?


a) H2O →OH- + H+
NH3→NH2- +H+
Water being more polar than ammonia dissociates more and gives plenty amount of H+ and hence H2 gas is released as result. In ammonia sufficient amount of H+ is not obtained due to less polar nature (so less dissociation) hence H2 gas is not evolved and then ammoniation of electron happens
b) As we dilute further dissociation of ammonia increases (because degree of dissociation is inversely proportional to concentration) and we get more H+ and NH2- ion. H+ combines with ammoniated electron and H2 gas is evolved and paramagnetism is gone.
c) NH3→NH2- +H+
M →M+ +e-
M+ +xNH2-→[M (NH2)x] type of complex
On adding d block metal ion we see that metal ion combines with NH2- and forms metal complex. Complex formation leads to ammonia dissociation even more and as a result of ammonia dissociation more H+ is released and which combines with ammoniated electron and H2 gas is evolved. Now colour and magnetic nature may or may not change. But whatever it will be it will be due to this complex.
d) Metallic bonding increases at very high concentration M2 is formed.
Hence option (d) is correct.


In which of the following, colour can be explained due to ‘Ligand to Metal Charge Transfer’?


Condition for ‘ligand to metal charge transfer’ are
i) Metal should be in high oxidation state so that it has high ionization energy. And it should also be of smaller size with vacant orbitals having low energies.
ii) Ligand should have lone pair of electrons having high energy
In KMnO4, Mn is in +7 oxidation state and have all the 3d orbitals vacant. Mn+7 ion is surrounded by four oxide ions. All oxide ions have filled 2p orbitals. There is transfer of an electron from filled 2p orbital of oxide ion to vacant d orbitals of Mn+7 ion. Due to this transfer of electron from oxides of KMnO4 to metal happens and as a result colouris intensely purple.

Trick: Almost all the metal ion of d block having d0 configuration tend to show colour due to ligand to metal charge transfer. Another example of this is K2Cr2O7
Hence option (a) is correct.


Observe the following reaction

Which of the following statement is true regarding solvent of the above reaction


In water the product is almost all benzyl naphthol. However, in DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) the
major product is the ether. In water the oxyanion is heavily solvated through hydrogen bonds to
water molecules and the electrophile cannot push them aside to get close to O– (this is an entropy
effect). DMSO cannot form hydrogen bonds as it has no OH bonds and does not solvate the oxyanion, which is free to attack the electrophile.
DMSO Solvent:

Water Solvent:

Hence option (a) is correct.


Which of the following order of aromaticity is correct


Correct order is
benzene > thiophene > pyrrole > furan.
Take a look at the structures

Electronegativity of atoms in the ring
In furan oxygen is in ring. It will be less reluctant to share electrons of lone pair for resonance and hence aromatic character will be least in it.
In pyrrole nitrogen is in ring. It will be more willing than furan to share electrons for resonance hence more aromatic than furan.
Thiophene has sulphur which is less electronegative than nitrogen hence more aromatic character than pyrrole.
Benzen has carbon and has 6π electrons already so most aromatic.
Hence option (c) is correct.


Consider the following reaction




Enthalpy is not a conclusive measurement of whether a reaction will be more spontaneous and favorable. Entropy is.
Taking a look at both reactions, in reaction A two molecules are combining and giving one molecule and in reaction B only one molecule is giving one molecule so decrease in entropy in reaction B is less. So, ∆S will be less negative in here hence more favorable.
Hence option (d) is correct.


Which of the following will not produce nitrogen gas?


a) (NH4)2Cr207→ N2 + Cr2O3 +4H2O
b) 8NH3 + 3Br2→N2 + 6NH4Br
c) 2NH3 + 3CuO →N2 + 3Cu + 3H2O
d) 3Ca + 6NH3→3[Ca(NH2)6]
Hence option (d) is correct.


The hydride ion H- has the same electron configuration as helium but is much less stable. Which of the following option explains the given statement


Hydrogen 1H : 1S1
Hydride: 1H- :1S2
Helium 2He : 1S2
Helium has two proton in it and it can stabilize 2 electrons. But, in hydrogen as one more electron enters and it becomes hydride ion, now one proton has to account for two electrons, the stability is affected. In hydride one proton cannot stabilize two electrons so structural deformity arises which leads to its reactivity.
Hence option (b) is correct.


IUPAC name of the following compound is


IUPAC name of the compound will be
Hence option (a) is correct.


XeF2 when dissolved in water produces three compound A, B, C. A is inert. Compound B forms strongest H-bond with its anion and exists as D. Compound C is used in combustion. Which of the following is correct?


Reaction mentioned is given as below
2XeF2 +2H2O →2Xe + 4HF + O2
HF forms H-bond with F- and exists as HF2-
Hence option (d) is correct.


Which of the marked position is most susceptible to nucleophilic attack


Position a and c will be more susceptible to nucleophilic attack
Position a has bromine attached to it making it electron deficient or more electropositive and hence inviting for nucleophile
Position c has oxygen atom attached to it. High electronegativity of oxygen makes carbon highly electropositive and susceptible to nucleophilic attack.
Hence option (c) is correct.


Ester and amide are found in equilibrium which of the following is true regarding the equilibrium of following. K1 and K2 are equilibrium constants


1.As we increase the acidic conditions amine will be protonated and equilibrium will shift backward hence K1>K2

2. In basic medium phenol will be deprotonated and hence reaction will shift forward here K2>K1

Hence option (a) is correct.


In the given reaction, the major product will be


E2 eliminations therefore take place from the anti-periplanar conformation.
Here, E2 elimination gives mainly one of two possible stereoisomers.
2-Bromobutane has two conformations with H and Br anti-periplanar, but the one that is less hindered leads to more of the product, and the E-alkene predominates.
Another way to understand will be in any alkene formation  major product is always most stable alkene. We can see alkene given in option a is trans alkene and in option b is cis alkene. Trans alkene being more stable on account of less steric repulsion will be major product.
Hence option (a) is correct.


Arrhenius relation is described as K= A e-Ea/RT which of the following statement is correct regarding activation energy


Differentiating with respect to T

Here we can see that on increasing temperature those reaction having high value of Ea will be more susceptible to change in rate.
Hence, option (b) is correct.


Which of the following is correct about acidic nature of boric acid?


a) B(OH)3 +2 H2O →B(OH)4- +H3O+
This reaction is characterized as Lewis Acidity of boric acid
b) Due to hydrogen bond present in crystalline structure it becomes difficult for it to donate H+ and hence acidic character decreases.
c) B(OH)3 +2 H2O →B(OH)4- +H3O+
Cis-diols form complex with borate ion and shift the equation forward hence ionizing the boric acid to higher extent. And acidic character increases.
Hence option (c) is correct.

On moving across a period, the basic character of the oxides gradually changes first into amphoteric and finally into acidic character. The acidic character of oxides increases with increase in the oxidation states of the element that is combined with oxygen. Arrange the following oxides in order of increasing acidic character.
(1) SO3 (2) Cl2O7 (3) N2O5 (4) CO2
Fill in the boxes provided below with suitable number. Least acidic oxide will come in first box and the strongest acidic oxide in the last box.


Acidic Character of oxides increase as non-metallic character of the element that is combined with oxygen increase.
The ionisation energy is the measure of matallic and non-metallic character
AS ionisation energy of element decreases the matallic character increases and non-metallic charachter decreases and vice-versa.
Hence the correct increasing order of acidic character is increasing non-metallic character

The equation of the hyperbola whose foci are (6, 5), (- 4, 5) and eccentricity 5/4 is


Center of the hyperbola is the mid-point of the line segment joining two foci. Therefore, coordinates of the center are (1, 5). Also since the foci have same y coordinate therefore the line joining foci is parallel to x-axis. Hence the transverse axis is parallel to x-axis. Clearly the equation of the hyperbola is of form

Find the coefficient of x2009 in the expansion of (1 -x)2008 (1 +x + x2)2007


f(x)=(1−x)2008 ×(1+x+x2)2007
f(x)=(1−x)× ((1−x)(1+x+x2))2007
f(x)=(1−x)× (1+x+x2−x−x2−x3)2007
f(x)=(1−x)× (1−x3)2007
f(x)=(1−x3)2007 − x(1−x3)2007
All the terms in the expansion (1−x3)2007 is in the form x3r
And in the −x(1−x3)2007 is of the form x3p+1
So 3r = 2009 or 3p+1 = 2009
Where we do not get integer values of r,p.
So the coefficient of x2009 is 0
