#### Multiple Choice Questions

1.

Arrange the following electromagnetic radiations per quantum in the order of increasing energy:

A: Blue light
B: Yellow light
C: X-ray

• D, B, A, C

• A, B, D, C

• C, A, B, D

• C, A, B, D

A.

D, B, A, C

As, we know energy liberated, E = hc/λ

i.e So, lesser the wavelength greater will be energy liberated by electromagnetic radiations per quantum.

As, order of wavelength is given by

therefore, the order of electromagnetic radiations per quantum.

A telephonic communication service is working at carrier frequency of 10 GHz. Only 10% of it is utilized for transmission. How many telephonic channels can be transmitted simultaneously if each channel requires a bandwidth of 5 kHz?

• 2 x 106

• 2 x 105

• 2 x 104

• 2 x 105

D.

2 x 105

If n = no. of channels

10% of 10 GHz = n x 5 KHz

A diode detector is used to detect an amplitude modulated wave of 60% modulation by using a condenser of capacity 250 pico farad in parallel with a load resistance 100 kilo ohm. Find the maximum modulated frequency which could be detected by it.

• 10.62 MHz

• 10.62 kHz

• 5.31 mHz

• 5.31 mHz

B.

10.62 kHz

The frequency is given as μ =0.6
R = 100 k = 100 x1000 Ω
c = 250 pico farad = 250 x 10-12 F

A radar has a power of 1 Kw and is operating at a frequency of 10 GHz. It is located on a mountain top of height 500 m. The maximum distance upto which it can detect object located on the surface of the earth (Radius of earth = 6.4 x 106 m) is

• 80 km

• 16 km

• 40km

• 40km

A.

80 km

Maximum distance on earth where object can be detected is d, then

(h + R)2 = d2 + R2

⇒ d2 = h2 + 2Rh
Since, h<<R,
⇒d2 =2hR 321 Views

A signal of 5 kHz frequency is amplitude modulated on a carrier wave of frequency 2 MHz. The frequencies of the resultant signal is/are:

• 2005 kHz, and 1995 kHz

• 2005 kHz, 2000 kHz and 1995 kHz

• 2000 kHz and 1995 kHz

• 2000 kHz and 1995 kHz

C.

2000 kHz and 1995 kHz

Frequency associated with AM are
fc - fm, f, fc + fm
according to the question
fc = 2 MHz = 2000 kHz

fm = 5 kHz
Thus, frequency of the resultant signal is are carrier frequency fc = 2000 kHz, LSB frequency  fc-fm = 2000 kHz-5kHz = 1995 kHz and USB frequency fc+fm = 2005 kHz

Choose the correct statement:

• In amplitude modulation, the amplitude of the high-frequency carrier wave is made to vary in proportion to the amplitude of the audio signal.

• In amplitude modulation, the frequency of the high-frequency carrier wave is made to vary in proportion to the amplitude of the audio signal.

• In frequency modulation, the amplitude of the high-frequency carrier wave is made to vary in proportion to the amplitude of the audio signal.

• In frequency modulation, the amplitude of the high-frequency carrier wave is made to vary in proportion to the amplitude of the audio signal.

B.

In amplitude modulation, the frequency of the high-frequency carrier wave is made to vary in proportion to the amplitude of the audio signal.

As, we know, an amplitude modulated wave, the bandwidth is twice the frequency of modulating the signal. Therefore, amplitude modulation (AM), the frequency of the high-frequency carrier wave is made to vary in proportion to the amplitude of the audio signal.
