12. A table tennis ball which has been covered with a conducting point is suspended by a light thread
so that it hangs between two metal p.a.es. One plate is earthed, while other is attached to high
voltage generator, the ball
A. hangs without moving
B. swings backward & forward hitting each plate in turn
C. is attracted to the high voltage plate and stays there
D. is repelled by earthed plate and stays there

Ans.B
Solution:
By induction the tennis ball gets -ve charge and gets attracted to the +ve plate and touches it.
Charges are then shared Like charges
repel and hence ball moves away & touches the earthed plate which gives its charge and goes to
initial position & process repeats.

13. A parallel plate capacitor has plates of unequal area. The larger plate is connected to the positive
terminal of the battery and smaller plate to -ve terminal. Let Q+ and Q- be the charges appearing
on the positive and negative plates respectively

B. Q+ = Q
C. Q+ < Q
D. None of these

Ans. B
