Figure shows a network of capacitors where the numbers indicates capacitances in micro Farad. The value of capacitance C if the equivalent capacitance between point A and B is to be 1 $$\mu $$F is :

A
$${{31} \over {23}}\,\mu F$$
B
$${{32} \over {23}}\,\mu F$$
C
$${{33} \over {23}}\,\mu F$$
D
$${{34} \over {23}}\,\mu F$$

Explanation

Equivalent capacitance of 6 $$\mu $$F and 12 $$\mu $$F is = $${{6 \times 12} \over {12 + 6}}$$ = 4 $$\mu $$F

Equivalent capacitance of 4$$\mu $$F and 4$$\mu $$F

is = 4 + 4 = 8 $$\mu $$F

New circuit is $$ \to $$



equivalent capacitance of 1 $$\mu $$F and 8 $$\mu $$F is

   = $${{1 \times 8} \over {8 + 1}}$$ = $${8 \over 9}$$ $$\mu $$F

Equivalent capacitance of 8 $$\mu $$F and 4 $$\mu $$F is

   = $${{8 \times 4} \over {12}}$$ = $${8 \over 3}$$ $$\mu $$F

New circuit is $$ \to $$



Equation capacitance of $${8 \over 9}$$ $$\mu $$F and $${8 \over 3}$$ $$\mu $$F is

   = $${8 \over 9}$$ + $${8 \over 3}$$ = $${32 \over 9}$$ $$\mu $$F

$$ \therefore $$   Equivalent capacitance of AB is

CAB = $${{C \times {{32} \over 9}} \over {C + {{32} \over 9}}}$$

Given that,

CAB = 1 $$\mu $$F

$$ \therefore $$   1 = $${{C \times {{32} \over 9}} \over {C + {{32} \over 9}}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   C + $${{{32} \over 9}}$$ = $${{32C} \over 9}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   $${{23C} \over 9} = {{32} \over 9}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   C = $${{32} \over {23}}$$ $$\mu $$F

A capacitance of 2 $$\mu $$F is required in an electrical circuit across a potential difference of 1.0 kV. A large number of 1 $$\mu $$F capacitors are available which can withstand a potential difference of not more than 300 V. The minimum number of capacitors required to achieve this is:
A
2
B
16
C
32
D
24

Explanation

To get a capacitance of 2 μF arrangement of capacitors of capacitance 1μF as shown in figure 8 capacitors of 1μF in parallel with four such branches in series i.e., 32 such capacitors are required.

$${1 \over {{C_{eq}}}} = {1 \over 8} + {1 \over 8} + {1 \over 8} + {1 \over 8}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $${1 \over {{C_{eq}}}} = {1 \over 2}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $${{C_{eq}} = 2}$$

An electric dipole has a fixed dipole moment $$\overrightarrow p $$, which makes angle $$\theta$$ with respect to x-axis. When subjected to an electric field $$\mathop {{E_1}}\limits^ \to = E\widehat i$$ , it experiences a torque $$\overrightarrow {{T_1}} = \tau \widehat k$$ . When subjected to another electric field $$\mathop {{E_2}}\limits^ \to = \sqrt 3 {E_1}\widehat j$$ it experiences a torque $$\mathop {{T_2}}\limits^ \to = \mathop { - {T_1}}\limits^ \to $$ . The angle $$\theta$$ is:
A
90o
B
45o
C
30o
D
60o

Explanation



Torque experienced by the dipole in an electric field,

$$T $$ = pE sin$$\theta $$

$$\overrightarrow T = \overrightarrow p \times \overrightarrow E $$

$$\overrightarrow p = p\cos \theta \widehat i + p\sin \theta \widehat j$$

$$\mathop {{E_1}}\limits^ \to = E\widehat i$$

$$\overrightarrow {{T _1}} = \overrightarrow P \times {\overrightarrow E _1}$$

= ($$p\cos \theta \widehat i + p\sin \theta \widehat j$$) $$ \times $$ $$E\left( {\widehat i} \right)$$

= pE sin$$\theta $$$$\left( { - \widehat k} \right)$$

$$\mathop {{E_2}}\limits^ \to = \sqrt 3 {E_1}\widehat j$$

$$\overrightarrow {{T _2}} = $$($$p\cos \theta \widehat i + p\sin \theta \widehat j$$) $$ \times $$ $$\sqrt 3 {E_1}\widehat j$$

= $$\sqrt 3 pE\cos \theta \left( {\widehat k} \right)$$

Now given, $$\overrightarrow {{T _2}}$$ = $$-\overrightarrow {{T _1}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$\sqrt 3 pE\cos \theta \left( {\widehat k} \right)$$ = -pE sin$$\theta $$$$\left( { - \widehat k} \right)$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$\tan \theta = \sqrt 3 $$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$\theta $$ = 60o

There is a uniform electrostatic field in a region. The potential at various points on a small sphere centred at $$P,$$ in the region, is found to vary between the limits 589.0 V to 589.8 V. What is the potential at a point on the sphere whose radius vector makes an angle of 60o with the direction of the field ?
A
589.5 V
B
589.2 V
C
589.4 V
D
589.6 V

Explanation

Potential gradient,

$$\Delta $$V = E. d

$$ \Rightarrow $$$$\,\,\,$$ 589.8 $$-$$ 589.0 = (E d)max

$$ \Rightarrow $$$$\,\,\,$$ (E d)max = 0.8

$$\therefore\,\,\,$$ $$\Delta $$V = E d cos$$\theta $$

= 0.8 $$ \times $$ cos60o

= 0.4

$$\therefore\,\,\,$$ Maximum potential on the sphere = 589.4 V
