In the circuit diagram shown, the two resistance wires A and B are of the same length and same material, but A is thicker than B. Which ammeter Af or A2 will indicate higher reading for current ? Give reason.
(CBSE 2010, 2011)

Hide | Show

જવાબ :

The current will be high if resistance is low.

p and l for both wires A and B are same but area of cross-section (A) of wire A is- more than the wire B. Therefore, resistance of wire A is less than the resistance of the wire B. Hence, ammeter A connected in series with the wire A will indicate higher reading for current.


In the circuit diagram shown, the two resistance wires A and B are of same area of cross-section and same material, but A is longer than B. Which ammeter A1 and A2 will indicate higher reading of current ? Give reason. (CBSE 2010, 2011)

Hide | Show

જવાબ : The current in the circuit is high if the resistance of the circuit is low. Since wire A is longer than B, so the resistance of wire B is less than the resistance of wire A. Hence, current flowing through wire B is greater than the current flowing through wire A. Therefore, ammeter A2 will indicate higher reading of current.


Two students perform experiments on two given resistors R1 and R2 and plot the following V-I graphs. If R1 > R2, which of the two diagrams correctly represent the situation on the plotted curves ? Justify your answer. (CBSE 2010, 2012)

Hide | Show

જવાબ : Resistance of a conductor = slope of I-V graph. It means, resistance is high if slope of I-V graph for it is steeper. Since R1 > R2, therefore, slope of I-V graph for R1 must be steeper than the slope of I-V graph for R2 Thus, diagram I represents the situation correctly.

જવાબ : It should be made of nichrome wire because

  1. resistivity of nichrome is greater than that of iron and silver, so more heat is produced in the nichrome wire due to the flow of current.
  2. melting point of nichrome wire is greater than that of iron and silver and hence it does not melt easily on heating.
  3. nichrome wire does not oxidize (or burn) easily even at higher temperature.

  1. connecting the heaters in series with the main supply,
  2. connecting the heaters in parallel with the main supply ? (CBSE 2011)

જવાબ : Heat produced in a heater, when connected to main supply,

When identical heaters (i.e. having same resistance) are connected in parallel, their net resistance decreases as compared to when connected in series.

Three bulbs each having power P are connected in series in an electric circuit. In another circuit, another set of three bulbs of same power are connected in parallel to the same source.
(i) Will the bulbs in both the circuits glow with the same brightness? Justify your answer.
(ii) Now let one bulb in each circuit get fused. Will the rest of the bulbs continue to glow in each circuit? Give reason.
(iii) Representing each bulb by a resistor, draw circuit diagram for each case.

જવાબ : (i) Bulbs in parallel provide more illumination. This is because
(a) each bulb gets same voltage and is equal to the applied voltage.
(b) each bulb draws required current from the mains. Hence, they work properly.
(ii)When one bulb in each circuit gets fused,
In series: Rest of the bulbs will not glow. This is because in series arrangement, there is only a single path for the flow of current.
In parallel: Rest of the bulbs will continue to glow as in parallel connection,
(a) individual branch in the circuit completes its own circuit, or
(b) different paths are available for the flow of current.
(iii) Circuit diagram


(a) Though same current flows through the electric line wires and the filament of bulb, yet only the filament glows. Why?
(b) The temperature of the filament of bulb is 2700°C when it glows. Why does it not get burnt up at such high temperature?
(c) The filament of an electric lamp, which draws a current of 0.25 A is
used for four hours. Calculate the amount of charge flowing through the
circuit.
(d) An electric iron is rated 2 kW at 220 V. Calculate the capacity of the fuse
that should be used for the electric iron.

જવાબ : (a) Electric line wires offer extremely low resistance to the flow of current, so
they do not glow because negligible heat is produced in it.
The filament of bulb glows because it becomes red hot due to large amount of
heat produced, as it offers high resistance to the flow of current through it.
(b) The filament of bulb when it glows at 2700°C does not get burnt because the tungsten metal of filament has
(i) a very high melting point (of 3380°C) and
(ii) a high resistivity.

(c) Given: I = 0.25 A, t = 4 h = 4 x 60 x 60 sec.
So, amount of charge flowing the filament of electric lamp
So, the capacity of the fuse that should be used for the electric iron is of the order of 10 A.


In the given circuit, connect a nichrome wire of length ‘L’ between points X and Y and note the ammeter reading.
(i) When this experiment is repeated by inserting another nichrome wire of the same thickness but twice the length (2L), what changes are observed in the ammeter reading?
(ii) State the changes that are observed in the ammeter reading if we double the area of cross-section without changing the length in the above experiment. Justify your answer in both the cases.
(b) “Potential difference between points A and B in an electric field is 1 V”. Explain the above statement.

જવાબ : (a)(i) Ammeter reading in the second case is half of the ammeter reading
in first case. This is because
=> i.e. when length is doubled, the resistance is doubled, this means the current is halved.
(ii) On doubling the area of cross-section without changing the length of the conductor, twice of the previous reading is observed in the ammeter. This is because
So, when A is double, resistance becomes half, current will be doubled. (b) “Potential difference between points A and B in an electric field is 1 V”. It means 1 J work is done in moving 1 C of charge from point B to point A in an electric field.
