### AIPMT 2009

A transistor is operated in common-emitter configuration at VC = 2V such that a change in the base current from 100 $\mu$A to 200 $\mu$A produces a change in the collector current from 5 mA to 10 mA. The current gain is
A
100
B
150
C
50
D
75

## Explanation

Current gain, $\beta$ = ${{\Delta {I_C}} \over {\Delta {I_B}}}$

= ${{\left( {10 - 5} \right) \times {{10}^{ - 3}}} \over {\left( {200 - 100} \right) \times {{10}^{ - 6}}}}$ = 50

If the lattice parameter for a crystalline structure is 3.6 $\mathop A\limits^ \circ$, then the atomic radius in fcc crystal is
A
2.92 $\mathop A\limits^ \circ$
B
1.27 $\mathop A\limits^ \circ$
C
1.81 $\mathop A\limits^ \circ$
D
2.10 $\mathop A\limits^ \circ$

## Explanation

The atomic radius in a f.c.c. crystal is = ${a \over {2\sqrt 2 }}$

$\therefore$ Atomic radius = ${{3.6} \over {2\sqrt 2 }}$ = 1.27 $\mathop A\limits^ \circ$

The voltage gain of an amplifier with 9% negative feedback is 10. The voltage gain without feedback will be
A
1.25
B
100
C
90
D
10

## Explanation

Negative feedback is applied to reduce the output voltage of an amplifier. If there is no negative feedback, the value of output voltage could be very high. In the options given, the maximum value of voltage gain is 100. Hence it is the correct option.
