### JEE Main 2021 (Online) 31st August Evening Shift

Numerical
The diameter of a spherical bob is measured using a vernier callipers. 9 divisions of the main scale, in the vernier callipers, are equal to 10 divisions of vernier scale. One main scale division is 1 mm. The main scale reading is 10 mm and 8th division of vernier scale was found to coincide exactly with one of the main scale division. If the given vernier callipers has positive zero error of 0.04 cm, then the radius of the bob is ___________ $$\times$$ 10$$-$$2 cm.

## Explanation

9 MSD = 10 VSD

9 $$\times$$ 1 mm = 10 VSD

$$\therefore$$ 1 VSD = 0.9 mm

LC = 1 MSD $$-$$ 1 VSD = 0.1 mm

Reading = MSR + VSR $$\times$$ LC

10 + 8 $$\times$$ 0.1 = 10.8 mm

Actual reading = 10.8 $$-$$ 0.4 = 10.4 mm

radius = $${d \over 2} = {{10.4} \over 2}$$ = 5.2 mm

= 52 $$\times$$ 10$$-$$2 cm

Numerical
The acceleration due to gravity is found upto an accuracy of 4% on a planet. The energy supplied to a simple pendulum to known mass 'm' to undertake oscillations of time period T is being estimated. If time period is measured to an accuracy of 3%, the accuracy to which E is known as ..............%

## Explanation

$$T = 2\pi \sqrt {{l \over g}} \Rightarrow l = {{{T^2}g} \over {4{\pi ^2}}}$$

$$E = mgl{{{\theta ^2}} \over 2} = m{g^2}{{{T^2}{\theta ^2}} \over {8{\pi ^2}}}$$

$${{dE} \over E} = 2\left( {{{dg} \over g} + {{dT} \over T}} \right)$$

$$= (4 + 3) = 14\%$$

### JEE Main 2021 (Online) 25th July Evening Shift

Numerical
A 16 $$\Omega$$ wire is bend to form a square loop. A 9V supply having internal resistance of 1$$\Omega$$ is connected across one of its sides. The potential drop across the diagonals of the square loop is _______________ $$\times$$ 10$$-$$1 V

## Explanation

Here assume current as By KVL in outer loop

9 $$-$$ 12i $$-$$ 4i = 0

16i = 9

8i = $${9 \over 2}$$ = 4.5

= 45 $$\times$$ 10-1

### JEE Main 2021 (Online) 25th July Morning Shift

Numerical
Student A and student B used two screw gauges of equal pitch and 100 equal circular divisions to measure the radius of a given wire. The actual value of the radius of the wire is 0.322 cm. The absolute value of the difference between the final circular scale readings observed by the students A and B is ______________.

[Figure shows position of reference 'O' when jaws of screw gauge are closed]

Given pitch = 0.1 cm. ## Explanation

For (A)

Reading = MSR + CSR + Error

0.322 = 0.300 + CSR + 5 $$\times$$ LC

0.322 = 0.300 + CSR + 0.005

CSR = 0.017

For (B)

Reading = MSR + CSR + Error

0.322 = 0.200 + CSR + 0.092

CSR = 0.030

Difference = 0.030 $$-$$ 0.017 = 0.013 cm

Division on circular scale = $${{0.013} \over {0.001}} = 13$$
