Q1: The terminal voltage of the battery, whose emf is   10V and internal resistance 1Ω, when connected through an external resistance of 4Ω as shown in the figure is:                 [2024]

(a) 4 V
(b) 6 V
(c) 8 V
(d) 10 V
Ans:
(c)Current in circuit
Terminal voltage = E - iR
= 10 - 2 x 1 = 8 V

Q2: A wire of length 'l' and resistance 100Ω is divided into 10 equal parts. The first 5 parts are connected in series while the next 5 parts are connected in parallel. The two combinations are again connected in series. The resistance of this final combination is:     [2024]
(a) 26Ω
(b) 52Ω
(c) 55Ω
(d) 60Ω
Ans:
(b)
To solve this problem, we first need to understand how the resistance changes when we cut the wire into equal parts and how it behaves when connected in different configurations (series and parallel).
Given:
Original length of the wire, l.
Total resistance of the wire R = 100Ω.
The wire is divided into 10 equal parts.
Resistance of each part:
Since the wire is divided into 10 equal parts, the length of each part is l/10. Resistance is proportional to length (as long as the cross-sectional area and material of the wire remain constant). Therefore, the resistance of each part, denoted as r, is 1/10th of the total resistance:

First 5 parts in series:
When resistors are connected in series, the total resistance is the sum of the individual resistances:

Next 5 parts in parallel:
When resistors are connected in parallel, the total resistance parallel Rparallel  can be calculated using the reciprocal formula:

Thus,
Rparallel = 2Ω
Final combination in series:
The total resistance of the combination, where the series and parallel groups are again connected in series, will be:Thus, the correct answer to the resistance of the final combination is:
Option B: 52Ω

Q3: Choose the correct circuit which can achieve the bridge balance.
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)              [2024]
Ans: (a)
In option (a),

The diode can conduct and have resistance RD = 10Ω because diode have dynamic resistance. In that case bridge will be balanced.

Q4: Two heaters A and B have power rating of  1 kW and  2 kW, respectively. Those two are first connected in series and then in parallel to a fixed power source. The ratio of power outputs for these two cases is:
(a) 1 : 1
(b) 2 : 9
(c) 1 : 2
(d) 2 : 3               [2024]
Ans:
(b)
To find the ratio of power outputs when two heaters with different power ratings are connected first in series and then in parallel, we need to understand how the total power output varies based on the type of connection.
Heater Specifications:

• Power of heater A kWW(PA)$=1kW=1000W$
• Power of heater B kWW(PB)$=2kW=2000W$

Scenario 1: Series Connection
When resistors (or heaters in this case) are connected in series, the total resistance (Rseries$series$) is the sum of the individual resistances (RA and RB).
Using the formula for electrical power: P = V2 / R,
where P is power, V is voltage, and R is resistance, we can express the resistance of each heater as:

Substitute the given power values:

Then the total resistance for the series connection is:

The total power output in series (Pseries) is:

Scenario 2: Parallel Connection
For parallel connections, the total resistance (Rparallel$parallel$) is given by:

Reformulate to find Rparallel$parallel$:

And the total power output in parallel (Pparallel$parallel$) is:

However, simplifying,

The ratio of powers is then:

Solving and simplifying,

Given that we know one ratio of the actual power values, we simplify further. For calculating power in simple terms, consider voltage to be normalized (taken out of the fraction):

Therefore, the ratio of the power outputs when the heaters are connected first in series and then in parallel is 2:9, which corresponds to Option B.

Q1: If the galvanometer G does not show any deflection in the circuit shown, the value of R is given by
(a) 200 Ω
(b) 50 Ω
(c) 100 Ω
(d) 400 Ω
Ans: (c)

Since the galvanometer does not show any deflection, the potential of each point can be found easily as shown in the image below:

i400=(10-2)/400 =8/400= 1/50 A
The current through R will also be the same as no current is flowing through the other side.
iR=1/50 A
R=VR/IR = (2-0)/(1/50)=100Ω

(d) 1.5 A from B to A through E
Ans: (b)

In the given image, the net current will flow from A to B because 10V > 5V.

Q1: In an ammeter, 0.2% of the main current passes through the galvanometer. If the resistance of the galvanometer is G, the resistance of the ammeter will be:
(a) 1/500 G
(b) 500/499 G
(c) 1/499 G
(d) 499/500 G
Ans: (a)

Solution:

Let the shunt resistance be S.

Q2: The resistance in the two arms of the meter bridge is 5 Ω and R Ω, respectively. When the resistance R is shunted with an equal resistance, the new balance point is at 1.6ℓ1. The resistance ‘R’ is :

(a) 20 Ω
(b) 25 Ω
(c) 10 Ω
(d) 15 Ω
Ans: (b)
Solution:

Q3: Two cities are 150 km apart. Electric power is sent from one city to another city through copper wires. The fall of potential per km is 8 volts and the average resistance per km is 0.5 Ω. The power loss in the wire is :
(a) 19.2 J
(b) 12.2 kW
(c) 19.2 W
(d) 19.2 kW
Ans: (d)

Solution:
Total voltage drop across wire = 150 x 8
= 1200 volt
Total resistance of wire
=  150 x 0.5 = 75 Ω
∴ current through wire

Q4: A potentiometer circuit has been set up for finding the internal resistance of a given cell. The main battery, used across the potentiometer wire, has an EMF of 2.0 V and a negligible internal resistance. The potentiometer wire itself is 4 m long. When the resistance, R connected across the given cell, has a value of:
(i) infinity
(ii) 9.5 Ω, the ‘balancing lengths’, on the potentiometer wire are found to be 3m and 2.85m, respectively.
The value of internal resistance of the cell is:
(a) 0.5 Ω
(b) 0.75 Ω
(c) 0.25 Ω
(d) 0.95 Ω
Ans: (a)

FAQs on NEET Previous Year Questions (2014-2024): Current Electricity - Physics Class 12

 1. What is the formula to calculate resistance in a circuit?
Ans. The formula to calculate resistance in a circuit is R = V/I, where R is the resistance, V is the voltage, and I is the current flowing through the circuit.
 2. How does the resistance of a conductor change with temperature?
Ans. In general, the resistance of a conductor increases with an increase in temperature. This is because as the temperature rises, the atoms in the conductor vibrate more, causing more collisions with the flowing electrons, which results in higher resistance.
 3. What is Ohm's Law and how is it applied in circuits?
Ans. Ohm's Law states that the current flowing through a conductor is directly proportional to the voltage across it, given a constant temperature. It can be mathematically expressed as V = IR, where V is the voltage, I is the current, and R is the resistance.
 4. How do you calculate power in an electrical circuit?
Ans. The power in an electrical circuit can be calculated using the formula P = VI, where P is the power, V is the voltage, and I is the current. Alternatively, power can also be calculated using the formula P = I^2R or P = V^2/R, depending on the information given.
 5. What is the difference between series and parallel circuits?
Ans. In a series circuit, the components are connected end-to-end, so the same current flows through each component. In a parallel circuit, the components are connected across each other, so the voltage across each component is the same.
