Numerical

A uniform heating wire of resistance 36$$\Omega$$ is connected across a potential difference of 240 V. The wire is then cut into half and potential difference of 240V is applied across each half separately. The ratio of power dissipation in first case to the total power dissipation in the second case would be 1 : x, where x is ____________

Your Input ________

Correct Answer is **4**

The potential difference of the uniform wire, V = 240 V

The resistance of the uniform wire, R

The power dissipation in the first case,

$${P_1} = {{{V^2}} \over {{R_1}}} = {{{{(240)}^2}} \over {36}}$$

The resistance of each half, $${R_2} = {{{R_1}} \over 2} = {{36} \over 2} = 18\Omega $$

$${P_2} = {{{V^2}} \over {{R_2}}} + {{{V^2}} \over {{R_2}}} = {{{{(240)}^2}} \over {18}} + {{{{(240)}^2}} \over {18}} = {{{{(240)}^2}} \over 9}$$

Thus, the ratio of the total power dissipation in the first case to the second case

$${{{P_1}} \over {{P_2}}} = {{{{(240)}^2}/36} \over {{{(240)}^2}/9}} \Rightarrow {{{P_1}} \over {{P_2}}} = {1 \over 4}$$

Comparing with, $${{{P_1}} \over {{P_2}}} = {1 \over x}$$

The value of the x = 4.

Numerical

A resistor dissipates 192 J of energy in 1s when a current of 4A is passed through it. Now, when the current is doubled, the amount of thermal energy dissipated in 5s in _________ J.

Your Input ________

Correct Answer is **3840**

E = i^{2}Rt

192 = 16 (R) (1)

R = 12$$\Omega$$

E_{1} = (8)^{2} (12) (5)

= 3840 J

192 = 16 (R) (1)

R = 12$$\Omega$$

E

= 3840 J

Numerical

A parallel plate capacitor of capacitance 200 $$\mu$$F is connected to a battery of 200 V. A dielectric slab of dielectric constant 2 is now inserted into the space between plates of capacitor while the battery remain connected. The change in the electrostatic energy in the capacitor will be ____________J.

Your Input ________

Correct Answer is **4**

$$\Delta U = {1 \over 2}(\Delta C){V^2}$$

$$\Delta U = {1 \over 2}(KC - C){V^2}$$

$$\Delta U = {1 \over 2}(2 - 1)C{V^2}$$

$$\Delta U = {1 \over 2} \times 200 \times {10^{ - 6}} \times 200 \times 200$$

$$\Delta U = 4$$ J

$$\Delta U = {1 \over 2}(KC - C){V^2}$$

$$\Delta U = {1 \over 2}(2 - 1)C{V^2}$$

$$\Delta U = {1 \over 2} \times 200 \times {10^{ - 6}} \times 200 \times 200$$

$$\Delta U = 4$$ J
