Q.2. A boy has two spare light bulbs in his drawer. One is marked 240 V and 100 W and the other is marked 240 V and 60 W. He tries to decide which of the following assertions are correct?
(a) The 60 W light bulb has more resistance and therefore burns less brightly.
(b) The 60 W light bulb has less resistance and therefore burns less brightly.
(c) The 100 W bulb has more resistance and therefore burns more brightly.
(d) The 100 W bulb has less resistance and therefore burns less brightly. 

Correct Answer is option (a)
When the same potential difference, that is the voltage, is applied as in houses,
Power  = VI = V2/R
The smaller resistance consumes greater power. Here 100 W bulb has less resistance. It should glow more brightly. The 60 W bulb has more resistance and therefore statement (a) is correct.


Q.3. In parallel combination of n cells, we obtain
(a) more voltage
(b) more current
(c) less voltage
(d) less current

Correct Answer is option (b)
In parallel combination of cells the voltage across the terminals is same and resistance is minimum. Therefore from V = IR. The current drawn from cell combination will be more.


Q.4. A circuit has a section ABC as shown in figure. If the potentials at point A, B and C are V1, V2 and V3 respectively. The potential at point O is
Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE(a) V1 + V+ V3
(b) Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE
(c) Zero
(d) Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE

Correct Answer is option (b)
Applying junction rule to O –I1 – I2 – I3 = 0
i.e., I1 + I2 + I3 = 0 … (i)
Let, V0 be the potential at point O. By Ohm’s law for resistance R1, R2 and R3 respectively, we get
(V0 – V1) = I1R1; (V0 – V2) = I2R2 and (V0 – V3) = I3R3   
Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE
So substitution these values of I1, I2 and I3 in eqn. (i), we get

Q.6. The voltage V and current I graphs for a conductor at two different temperatures T1 and T2 are shown in the figure. The relation between T1 and T2 is
Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE
(a) T1 >T2 
(b) T1 <T2
(c) T1 = T2 
(d) T1 = 1/T2

Correct Answer is option (a) 
The slope of V-I graph gives the resistance of a conductor at a given temperature. From the graph, it follows that resistance of a conductor at temperature T1 is greater than at temperature T2. As the resistance of a conductor is more at higher temperature and less at lower temperature, hence T1 > T2.

Q.12. AB is a wire of potentiometer with the increase in the value of resistance R, the shift in the balance point J will be
Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE(a) towards B
(b) towards A
(c) remains constant
(d) first towards B then back towards A.

Correct Answer is option (a)
Due to increase in resistance R the current through the wire will decrease and hence the potential gradient also decreases, which results in increase in balancing length. So J will shift towards B.

Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE
As current is 1 A
VAC = 4 x 1 = 4V
As Vc = 0
∴ VA = 4 V
VED = 2 x 1  = 2V, ∴ VD = - 2V
∴ VB = 10 V
VBA = 10 – 4 = 6 V
R = 6/1 = 6 Ω


Q.18. For the circuit shown, which of the following statements is true?
Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE(a) With S1 closed, V1 = 1 5 V, V2 = 20 V
(b) With S3 closed V1 = V2 = 25V
(c) With S1 and S2 closed, V1 = V2 = 0
(d) With S1 and S3 closed, V1 = 30 V,  V2 = 20 V

Correct Answer is option (d)
Let us consider the first alternative.  When switch S1 is closed the charge on plate 2 will not change because this plate remains isolated.  Hence the bound charge on plate will not change.
Thus the potential difference across C1 will remains same.  Similarly when S3 is closed V1 and V2 do not change.
When S1 and S2 are closed, the charge on plates 2 and 3 will not change.
Thus V1 and V2 remain the same.
With S1 and S3 closed, the charge on the plate 4 will remain the same.  So, the bound charges on plates will not change.  Hence V1 and V2 remain the same.

= 0.2 % (increase).


Q.20. In the given circuit, the resistance R has a value that depends on the current.  Specifically, R is 20 ohms when I is zero and the increase in resistance (in ohms) is numerically equal to one-half of the current in amperes.  What is the value of current I in the circuit?
Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE(a) 8.33 amp
(b) 10 amp
(c) 12.5 amp
(d) 18.5 amp

Correct Answer is option (b)
The value of resistor R in the circuit is
R = 20 + I/2 ;
Single Correct MCQs: Current Electricity - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE
I (20 + I/2) = 250
I2 + 4I – 500  = 0  ⇒ (I – 10)  (I + 50) = 0
i.e. I = 10  amp.
