Four closed surfaces and corresponding charge distributions are shown below.



Let the respective electric fluxes through the surfaces be $${\Phi _1},$$ $${\Phi _2},$$ $${\Phi _3}$$ and $${\Phi _4}$$. Then :
A
$${\Phi _1}$$ < $${\Phi _2}$$ = $${\Phi _3}$$ > $${\Phi _4}$$
B
$${\Phi _1}$$ > $${\Phi _2}$$ > $${\Phi _3}$$ > $${\Phi _4}$$
C
$${\Phi _1}$$ = $${\Phi _2}$$ = $${\Phi _3}$$ = $${\Phi _4}$$
D
$${\Phi _1}$$ > $${\Phi _3}$$ ; $${\Phi _2}$$ < $${\Phi _4}$$

Explanation

Net flux through a closed surface,

$$\phi $$ = $${{{q_{enclose}}} \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}$$

qenclosed = charge enclosed by closed surface.

For surface S1,

$$\phi $$1 = $${1 \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}$$ (2q)

For surface S2,

$$\phi $$2 = $${1 \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}$$ (q + q + q $$-$$ q) = $${1 \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}$$(2q)

For Surface S3,

$$\phi $$3 = $${1 \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}$$ (q + q) = $${1 \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}$$ (2q)

For surface S4,

$$\phi $$4 = $${1 \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}$$ (8q $$-$$ 2q $$-$$ 4q) = $${1 \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}$$ (2q)

$$\therefore\,\,\,$$ $$\phi $$1 = $$\phi $$2 = $$\phi $$3 = $$\phi $$4

Three concentric metal shells A, B and C of respective radii a, b and c (a < b < c) have surface charge densities $$ + \sigma $$, $$ - \sigma $$ and $$ + \sigma $$ respectively. The potential of shell B is :
A
$${\sigma \over { \in {}_0}}\left[ {{{{b^2} - {c^2}} \over c} + a} \right]$$
B
$${\sigma \over { \in {}_0}}\left[ {{{{a^2} - {b^2}} \over a} + c} \right]$$
C
$${\sigma \over { \in {}_0}}\left[ {{{{a^2} - {b^2}} \over b} + c} \right]$$
D
$${\sigma \over { \in {}_0}}\left[ {{{{b^2} - {c^2}} \over b} + a} \right]$$

Explanation



Let charge of shell A, B and C are QA, QB and QC respectively.

Potential of B shell will be due to charge QA, QB and QC.

Here charge QA is inside of the shell B and QB is on the surface of the shell B in both cases you have to take the radius of the shell B, while calculating potential of shell B.

Charge QC is outside of the shell B so take radius of shell C for calculating potential of shell B.

$$\therefore$$ VB = V$$_{{Q_a}}$$ + V$$_{{Q_b}}$$ + V$$_{{Q_c}}$$

= $${1 \over {4\pi {\varepsilon _0}}}$$ $$\left[ {{{4\pi {a^2}\left( { + \sigma } \right)} \over b} + {{4\pi {b^2}\left( { - \sigma } \right)} \over b} + {{4\pi {c^2}\left( { + \sigma } \right)} \over c}} \right]$$

= $${1 \over {4\pi {\varepsilon _0}}}$$ $$ \times $$ 4$$\pi $$$$\sigma $$ $$\left[ {{{{a^2}} \over b} - {{{b^2}} \over b} + c} \right]$$

= $${\sigma \over {{\varepsilon _0}}}\left[ {{{{a^2} - {b^2}} \over b} + c} \right]$$

A parallel plate capacitor of capacitance 90 pF is connected to a battery of emf 20 V. If a dielectric material of dielectric constant K = 5/3 is inserted between the plates, the magnitude of the induced charge will be :
A
0.9 n C
B
1.2 n C
C
0.3 n C
D
2.4 n C

Explanation

Charge on Capacitor initially,

Qi = CV

After inserting dielectric of dielectric constant = K,

new capacitance, Qf = (KC) $$ \vee $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,$$ Induced charges on dielectric

= Qf $$-$$ Qi

= KCV $$-$$ CV

= (K $$-$$ ) CV

= $$\left( {{5 \over 3} - 1} \right)$$ $$ \times $$ 90 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$12 $$ \times $$ 20

= 1.2 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$9 C

= 1.2 nC
