FAQs on DC Pandey Solutions (JEE Main): Alternating Current - DC Pandey Solutions for JEE Physics

1. What is alternating current (AC)?
Ans. Alternating current (AC) is an electric current that periodically reverses direction. In AC, the flow of electric charge changes direction at regular intervals, usually 50 or 60 times per second. This is in contrast to direct current (DC), where the flow of charge is always in one direction.
2. How is alternating current generated?
Ans. Alternating current can be generated using devices called alternators or generators. These devices use the principle of electromagnetic induction to produce an alternating current. When a coil of wire is rotated in a magnetic field, an alternating current is induced in the wire.
3. What are the advantages of alternating current over direct current?
Ans. Alternating current has several advantages over direct current. One of the main advantages is that AC can be easily transmitted over long distances without significant loss of energy. AC can also be easily stepped up or down in voltage using transformers. Additionally, AC allows for the use of more efficient and cost-effective power generation and distribution systems.
4. What is the frequency of alternating current in most household circuits?
Ans. The frequency of alternating current in most household circuits is 50 or 60 Hz. In countries like India, the frequency is typically 50 Hz, while in countries like the United States, the frequency is typically 60 Hz. This means that the direction of current changes 50 or 60 times per second.
5. How is alternating current measured?
Ans. Alternating current is measured using a device called an ammeter. An ammeter is connected in series with the circuit and measures the current flowing through it. The reading on the ammeter gives the value of the alternating current in amperes (A). It is important to note that the ammeter should be able to measure the frequency of the alternating current accurately.
