Two charges, each equal to q, are kept at x = −a and x = a on the x-axis. A particle of mass m and charge qo =-q/2 is placed at the origin. If charge qo is given a small displacement (y<< a) along the y-axis, the net force acting on the particle is proportional to

• y

• -y

• 1/y

• -1/y

A.

y

Two capacitors C1 and C2 are charged to 120 V and 200 V respectively. It is found that by connecting them together the potential on each one can be made zero. Then

• 5C1 = 3C2

• 3C1 = 5C2

• 3C1 = 5C2 = 0

• 9C1 = 4C2

B.

3C1 = 5C2

q1 = q2
C1V1 = C2V2
120C1 = 200C2
⇒ 3C1 = 5C2

The supply voltage to a room is 120 V. The resistance of the lead wires is 6 Ω. A 60 W bulb is already switched on. What is the decrease of voltage across the bulb, when a 240 W heater is switched on in parallel to the bulb?

• zero

• 2.9V

• 13.3 V

• 10.04 V

D.

10.04 V

Resistance of bulb =(120x 120)/60 = 240Ω
Resistance of Heater =(120x 120)/240 = 60Ω

Voltage across bulb before heater is switched on,
Voltage across bulb after heater is switched on,
A decrease in the voltage is V1 − V2 = 10.04 (approximately)

The magnetic field in a travelling electromagnetic wave has a peak value of 20 nT. The peak value of electric field strength is :

• 3 V/m

• 6 V/m

• 9 V/m

• 12 V/m

B.

6 V/m

Ε = cB
Where E = electric field,
B = magnetic field
c = speed of EM waves
= 3 × 108 × 20 × 10–9 = 6 V/m

Assume that a drop of liquid evaporates by decrease in its surface energy, so that its temperature remains unchanged. What should be the minimum radius of the drop for this to be possible? The surface tension is T, the density of liquid is ρ and L is its latent heat of vaporisation.

• ρL/T

• T/ρL

• 2T/ρL

D.

2T/ρL

Decrease in surface energy = Heat required in vapourisation.... (i)
Decrease in surface energy = T x ΔA

= 2T x 4πrdr  [ For two surface]
heat required in vapourisation = Latent heat
= ML = V x ρL
= (4πr2dr) ρL
Now from eq (i)
2T x 4πrdr = 4πr2ρL
r = 2T/ρL

This question has statement I and statement II. Of the four choices given after the statements, choose the one that best describes the two statements.
Statement- I: Higher the range, greater is the resistance of ammeter.
Statement- II: To increase the range of ammeter, additional shunt needs to be used across it.

• Statement – I is true, Statement – II is true, Statement – II is the correct explanation of statement- I.

• Statement – I is true, Statement – II is true, Statement – II is not the correct explanation of Statement–I.

• Statement – I is true, statement – II is false.

• Statement – I is false, Statement – II is true

D.

Statement – I is false, Statement – II is true

For Ammeter, S =
So for I to increase, S should decrease, so additional S can be connected across it.

In an LCR circuit as shown below both switches are open initially. Now switch S1 is closed, S2 kept open. (q is charge on the capacitor and τ = RC is capacitive time constant). Which of the following statement is correct?

• Work done by the battery is half of the energy dissipated in the resistor

• At t = τ, q = CV/2

• At t = 2τ, q = CV (1-e-2)

• At t = τ/2, q = CV (1-e-1)

C.

At t = 2τ, q = CV (1-e-2)

For charging of capacitor
q = CV (1-e1/τ)
At t = 2τ, q =CV (1-e-2)
