Q.1. Polar molecules are the molecules: (2021)
A: acquire a dipole moment only when magnetic field is absent.
B: having a permanent electric dipole moment.
C: having zero dipole moment.
D: acquire a dipole moment only in the presence of electric field due to displacement of charges.
Polar molecules have centres of positive and negative charges separated by some distance, so they have permanent dipole moment.
Q.2. A dipole is placed in an electric field as shown. In which direction will it move? (2021)
A: towards the left as its potential energy will decrease.
B: towards the right as its potential energy will increase.
C: towards the left as its potential energy will increase.
D: towards the right as its potential energy will decrease.
E1| > |E2| as field lines are closer at charge +q, so net force on the dipole acts towards right side.
A system always moves to decrease it's potential energy.
Q.3. A short electric dipole has a dipole moment of 16×10-9 C m. The electric potential due to the dipole at a point at a distance of 0.6 m from the centre of the dipole, situated on a line making an angle of 60° with the dipole axis is: (2020)
A: 400 V
C: 50 V
D: 200 V
Q.4. A hollow metal sphere of radius R is uniformly charged. The electric field due to the sphere at a distance r from the centre. (2019)
A: Increases as r increases for both r < R and r > R
B: Zero as r increases for r < R, decreases as r increases for r > R
C: Zero as r increases for r < R, increases as r increases for r > R
D: Decreases as r increases for both r < R and r > R
Solution: Charge Q will be distributed over the surface of hollow metal sphere.
(i) For r < R (inside)
By Gauss law,
⇒ Ein = 0 (∵ qen = 0)
(ii) For r > R (outside)

Q.6. Two point charges A and B, having charges +Q and –Q respectively, are placed at certain distance apart and force acting between them is F. If 25% charge of A is transferred to B, then force between the charges becomes : (2019)
If 25% of charge of A transferred to B then
Q.7. An electron falls from rest through a vertical distance h in a uniform and vertically upward directed electric field E. The direction of electrical field is now reversed, keeping its magnitude the same. A proton is allowed to fall from rest in through the same vertical distance h. The time fall of the electron, in comparison to the time fall of the proton is :- (2018)
B: 5 times greater
C: 10 times greater
Q.8. A toy car with charge q moves on a frictionless horizontal plane surface under the influence of a uniform electric fieldDue to the forceits velocity increases from 0 to 6 m/s in one second duration. At that instant the direction of the field is reversed. The car continues to move for two more seconds under the influence of this field. The average velocity and the average speed of the toy car between 0 to 3 seconds are respectively :- (2018)
A: 2 m/s, 4 m/s
B: 1 m/s, 3 m/s
C: 1 m/s, 3.5 m/s
D: 1.5 m/s, 3 m/s
0 < t < 1s : velocity increases from 0 to 6 m/s
1 < t < 2s : velocity decreases from 6 to 0 m/s
but car continues to move forward
2 < t < 3s : since field strength is same ⇒ same acceleration
∴ car's velocity increases
from 0 to –6 m/
Q.9. Two identical charged spheres suspended from a common point by two mass less strings of lengths ℓ are initially at a distance d(d << ℓ) a part because of their mutual repulsion. The charges begin to leak from both the spheres at a constant rate. As a result, the spheres approach each other with a velocity v. Then v varies as a function of the distance x between the spheres, as : (2016)
A: v ∝ x-1
B: v ∝ x1/2
C: v ∝ x
D: v ∝ x-1/2
