In the circuit shown, the switch S1 is closed at time t = 0 and the switch S2 is kept open. At some later time(t0), the switch S1 is opened and S2 is closed. The behavior of the current I as a function of time 't' is given by :
A B C D ## Explanation

From time t = 0 to t = t0, growth of current takes place and after that decay of current takes place. most appropriate is (A)

In a Wheatstone bridge(see fig.), Resistances P and Q are approximately equal. When R = 400 $\Omega$, the bridge is balanced. On interchanging P and Q, the value of R, for balance, is 405 $\Omega$. The value of X is close to : A
402.5 ohm
B
401.5 ohm
C
403.5 ohm
D
404.5 ohm

## Explanation

For a balanced bridge,

${P \over Q} = {{400} \over X}$ ......(i)

After interchanging P and Q,

${Q \over P} = {{405} \over X}$ ......(ii)

Multiplying equation (i) and (ii), we get

X2 = 400$\times$405

$\Rightarrow$ X = $\sqrt {400 \times 405}$ = 402.5 $\Omega$

An electric field of 1000 V/m is applied to an electric dipole at angle of 45o. The value of electric dipole moment is 10–29 C.m. What is the potential energy of the electric dipole?
A
- 7 $\times$ 10–27 J
B
$-$ 9 $\times$ 10–20 J
C
$-$ 10 $\times$ 10–29 J
D
$-$ 20 $\times$ 10–18 J

## Explanation

U = $-$ $\overrightarrow P .\overrightarrow E$

= $-$ PE cos $\theta$

= $-$ (10$-$29) (103) cos 45o

= $-$ 0.707 $\times$ 10$-$26 J

= $-$ 7 $\times$ 10$-$27 J.

A galvanometer having a resistance of 20 $\Omega$ and 30 divisions on both sides has figure of merit 0.005 ampere/division. The resistance that should be connected in series such that it can be used as a voltmeter upto 15 volt, is:
A
120 $\Omega$
B
125 $\Omega$
C
80 $\Omega$
D
100 $\Omega$

## Explanation

Rg = 20$\Omega$

NL = NR = N = 30

FOM = ${1 \over \phi }$ = 0.005 A/Div.

Current sentivity = CS = $\left( {{1 \over {0.005}}} \right)$ = ${\phi \over {\rm I}}$

${\rm I}$gmax = 0.005 $\times$ 30

= 15 $\times$ 10$-$2 = 0.15

15 = 0.15 [20 + R]

100 = 20 + R

R = 80
