In a series LCR circuit, R = 200 Ω and the voltage and the frequency of the main supply is 220 V and 50 Hz respectively. On taking out the capacitance from the circuit the current lags behind the voltage by 30º. On taking out the inductor from the circuit the current leads the voltage by 30º. The power dissipated in the LCR circuit is

• 305 W

• 210 W

• zero

• 242 W

D.

242 W

The given circuit is under resonance as XL = XC. Hence, power dissipated in the circuit is

P = V2/R = 242 W

Alternating current can not be measured by D.C. ammeter because

• A.C. cannot pass through D.C.

• A.C. changes direction

• average value of current for complete cycle is zero

• D.C. ammeter will get damaged.

C.

average value of current for complete cycle is zero

The full cycle of alternating current consists of two half cycles. For one half, currently is positive and for second half, current is negative. Therefore, for an a.c. cycle, the net value of current average out to zero. While for the half cycle, the value of current is different at different points. Hence, the alternating current cannot be measured by D.C. ammeter.

In a LCR circuit capacitance is changed from C to 2C. For the resonant frequency to remain unchanged, the inductance should be changed from L to

• 4L

• 2L

• L/2

• L/4

C.

L/2

In the condition of resonance XL = XC
or

ωL =1/ ωC  = .................. (i)
Since, resonant frequency remains unchanged

So,  = constant

or LC = constant
∴ L1 C1 = L2 C2 ⇒ L×C = L2× 2C
L2 = L/2
