MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

AIPMT 2004

Of the diodes shown in the following diagrams, which one is reverse biased ?
A
B
C
D

Explanation

A diode is said to be reverse biased if p-type semiconductor of p-n junction is at low potential with respect to n-type semiconductor of p-n junction. It is so for circuit (c).

AIPMT 2004

In semiconductors at a room temperature
A
the valence band is partially empty and the conduction band is partially filled
B
the valence band is completely filled and the conduction band is partially filled
C
the valence band is completely filled
D
the conduction band is completely empty

Explanation

In semiconductors at room temperature the electrons get enough energy so that they are able to over come the forbidden gap. Thus at room temperature the valence band is partially empty and conduction band is partially filled. Conduction band in semiconductor is completely empty only at 0 K.

AIPMT 2004

The peak voltage in the output of a half wave diode rectifier fed with a sinusoidal signal without filter is 10 V. The d.c. component of the output voltage is
A
(10/$$\sqrt 2 $$) V
B
$$\left( {{{10} \over \pi }} \right)V$$
C
10 V
D
(20/$$\pi $$) V

Explanation

V = $${{{V_0}} \over \pi }$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ V = $$\left( {{{10} \over \pi }} \right)V$$

AIPMT 2003

Barrier potential of a p-n junction diode does not depened on
A
diode design
B
temperature
C
forward bias
D
doping density

Explanation

Barrier potential does not depend in diode design while barrier potential depends upon temperature, doping density and forward biasing.
