Solution :
(a) Turn the switch to right side so as the resistance decreases.
(b) Turn the switch to the left side so as the resistace increases.

Question 1:
State two factors on which the electrical energy consumed by an electrical appliance depends.
Solution :
Electrical energy consumed by an electrical appliance depends on:
1. Power rating of the appliance.
2. Time for which the appliance is used.

Question 2:
Which one has a higher electrical resistance : a 100 watt bulb or a 60 watt bulb ?
Solution :
60 watt bulb, because power is inversely proportional to the resistance.

Question 3:
Name the commercial unit of electric energy.
Solution :
Kilowatt-hour is the commercial unit of electric energy.

Question 4:
An electric bulb is rated at 220 V, 100 W. What is its resistance ?
Solution :
V = 220 V, P = 100W
R=?
We know that
P = V2/R
Thus
R = V2/P = 2202/100 = 484ohm

Question 5:
What is the SI unit of (i) electric energy, and (ii) electric power ?
Solution :
(i) joule
(ii) watt

Question 6:
Name the quantity whose unit is (i) kilowatt, and (ii) kilowatt-hour.
Solution :
(i) Electric power
(ii) Electric energy

Question 7:
Which quantity has the unit of watt ?
Solution :
Electric power has the unit of watt.

Question 8:
What is the meaning of the symbol kWh ? Which quantity does it represent ?
Solution :
kWh is the short form of kilowatt-hour, which is the commercial unit of electrical energy.

Question 9:
If the potential difference between the end of a wire of fixed resistance is doubled, by how much does the electric power increase ?
Solution :
P = V2/R
R is fixed.
V becomes double.
Now, P = (2V)2/R = 4 V2/R
So, the electric power becomes four times its previous value.

Question 10:
An electric lamp is labelled 12 V, 36 W. This indicates that it should be used with a 12 V supply. What other information does the label provide ?
Solution :

Other information is that it will consume energy at the rate of 36 J/s.

Question 11:
What current will be taken by a 920 W appliance if the supply voltage is 230 V ?
Solution :
P = 920W, V = 230V, I = ?
We know that
P = V x I,
920 = 230 x I
I = 920/230 = 4amp

Question 12:
Define watt. Write down an equation linking watts, volts and amperes.
Solution :
When an electrical appliance consumes electrical energy at the rate of 1 joule per second, its power is said to be 1 watt.
1 watt = 1 volt x 1 ampere.

Question 13:
Define watt-hour. How many joules are equal to 1 watt-hour ?
Solution :
One watt hour is the amount of electrical energy consumed when an electrical appliance of 1 watt power is used for 1 hour.
1 watt hour = 3600 joules

Question 14:
How much energy is consumed when a current of 5 amperes flows through the filament (or element) of a heater having resistance of 100 ohms for two hours ? Express it in joules.
Solution :
I = 5amp, R = 100ohms, t = 2h
We know that
Electric energy consumed = P x t = I*I*Rt
= 25 x 100 x 2
= 5000 Wh
= 5 kwh
We know that 1kwh = 3.6 x 106 J
Therefore, 5kwh = 5 x 3.6 x 106 J = 18 x 106 J.

Question 15:
An electric bulb is connected to a 220 V power supply line. If the bulb draws a current of 0.5 A, calculate the power of the bulb.
Solution :
V = 220V, I = 0.5amp, P = ?
We know that
P = VI = 220X0.5
P =110 watt.

Question 16:
In which of the following cases more electrical energy is consumed per hour ?
(i) A current of 1 ampere passed through a resistance of 300 ohms.
(ii) A current of 2 amperes passed through a resistance of 100 ohms.

Solution :

(i) R = 300 ohm. I = 1 A. t = 1h
P = I2R = 12 x 300 = 300 W
E= Pxt= 300 x 1 = 300 Wh

(ii) R = 100 ohm. I = 2 A. t = 1h
P = I2R = 22 x 100 = 400 W
E = Pxt = 400 x 1 = 400 Wh
Hence. in case (ii). the electrical energy consumed per hour is more.

Question 17:
An electric kettle rated at 220 V, 2.2 kW, works for 3 hours. Find the energy consumed and the current drawn.
Solution :
V = 220V, P = 2.2kW = 2200W, t = 3h
We know that
Electrical energy consumed = Pxt = 2.2×3 = 6.6 kWh
We have, P = V x I
2200 = 220 x I
I = 10amp
