Two electric bulbs P and Q have their resistances in the ratio of 1: 2. They are connected in series across a battery.Find the ratio of the power dissipation in these bulbs.


A 10 V cell of negligible internal resistance is connected in parallel across a battery of emf 200 V and internal resistance 38 Ω as shown in the figure. Find the value of current in the circuit.


In a potentiometer arrangement for determining the emf of a cell, the balance point of the cell in open circuit is 350 cm. When a resistance of 9 ohm is used in the external circuit of the cell, the balance point shifts to 300 cm. Determine the internal resistance of the cell.

Define the term 'conductivity' of a metallic wire. Write its SI unit.


Using the concept of free electrons in a conductor, derive the expression for the conductivity of a wire in terms of number density and relaxation time. Hence obtain the relation between current density and the applied electric field E.


A bar magnet of magnetic moment 6 J/T is aligned at 60° with a uniform external magnetic field of 0.44 T. Calculate (a) the work done in turning the magnet to align its magnetic moment (i) normal to the magnetic field, (ii) opposite to the magnetic field, and (b) the torque on the magnet in the final orientation in case (ii).
