### IIT-JEE 2003

Subjective
If nth divisions of the main scale coincide with (n+1)th divisions of vernier scale. Given one main scale division is equal to 'a' units. Find the least count of the vernier.

${a \over {n + 1}}units$

## Explanation

We know that (n + 1) divisions on the vernier scale = n division on the main scale

Therefore,

1 division on the vernier scale = $\left( {{n \over {n + 1}}} \right)$ divisions on the main scale = $\left( {{n \over {n + 1}}} \right)a$ units

Therefore, the least count (LC) of the vernier caliper is

$1(MSD) - 1(VSD) = a - \left( {{n \over {n + 1}}} \right)a = {a \over {n + 1}}$

### IIT-JEE 1990

Subjective

Column - I gives the three physical quantities. Select the appropriate units for the choices given in Column - II. Some of the physical quantities may have more than one choice correct:

Column I Column II
Capacitance (i) ohm-second
Inductance (ii) coulomb2 - joule-1
Magnetic Induction (iii) coulomb (volt)-1
(iv) newton (amp-meter)-1
(v) volt-second (ampere)-1

Capacitance - coulomb (volt)-1, coulomb2 - joule-1

Inductance - ohm-second, volt-second (ampere)-1

Magnetic Induction - newton (amp-meter)-1
