In a CE transistor amplifier, the audio signal voltage across the collector resistance of 2 k$$\Omega $$ is 2 V. If the base resistance is 1 k$$\Omega $$ and the current amplification of the transistor is 100, the input signal voltage is
A
0.1 V
B
1.0 V
C
1 mV
D
10 mV

Explanation

Here, RC = 2 k$$\Omega $$ = 2 × 103 $$\Omega $$

V0 = 2 V, RB = 1 k$$\Omega $$ = 1 × 103 $$\Omega $$, $$\beta $$ = 100

The output voltage, across the load RC

V0 = ICRC = 2

The collector current (IC)

IC = $${2 \over {2 \times {{10}^3}}}$$ = 10-3 A = 1 mA

Current gain($$\beta $$) = $${{{I_C}} \over {{I_B}}}$$ = 100

$$ \Rightarrow $$ IB = $${{{I_C}} \over {100}}$$ = $${{{{10}^{ - 3}}} \over {100}}$$ = 10-5 A

Input voltage, Vi

= IBRB = (10–5 A) (1 × 103 $$\Omega $$) = 10–2 V = 10 mV

Pure Si at 500 K has equal number of electron (ne) and hole (nh) concentrations of 1.5 $$ \times $$ 1016 m$$-$$3. Doping by indium increases nh to 4.5 $$ \times $$ 1022 m$$-$$3. The doped semiconductor is of
A
p-type having electron concentration ne = 5 $$ \times $$ 109 m$$-$$3
B
n-type with electron concentration ne = 5 $$ \times $$ 1022 m$$-$$3
C
p-type with electron concentration ne = 2.5 $$ \times $$ 1010 m$$-$$3
D
n-type with electron concentration ne = 2.5 $$ \times $$ 1023 m$$-$$3

Explanation

(ni)2 = ne × nh

(1.5 × 1016)2 = ne (4.5 × 1022)

So ne = 5 × 109

Now nh = 4.5 × 1022

$$ \Rightarrow $$ nh $$ >> $$ ne

Hence, semiconductor is p-type

and ne = 5 × 109 m–3

AIPMT 2011 Mains

A Zener diode, having breakdown voltage equal to 15 V, is used in a voltage regulator circuit shown in figure. The current through the diode is

A
5 mA
B
10 mA
C
15 mA
D
20 mA

Explanation

Voltage across 250 Ω resistance = 20 V – 15 V = 5 V

Now current through 250 $$\Omega $$ resistance: 5/250 = 20 mA

If voltage across load resistance 1 k$$\Omega $$ is 15 V, then

current through 1 kΩ is 15/1000 = 15 mA

The current through the zener diode is

= Current through 250 $$\Omega $$ resistance – Current through 1 k$$\Omega $$ resistance.

= 20 - 15

= 5 mA
