MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
A transistor is operated in common emitter configuration at VC = 2 V such that a change in the base current from 100 $$\mu $$A to 300 $$\mu $$A produces a change in the collector current from 10 mA to 20 mA. The current gain is
A
50
B
75
C
100
D
25

Explanation

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

= $${{\left( {20 - 10} \right) \times {{10}^{ - 3}}} \over {\left( {300 - 100} \right) \times {{10}^{ - 6}}}}$$ = 50

AIPMT 2011 Mains

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
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

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
If a small amount of antimony is added to germanium crystal
A
it becomes a p-type semiconductor
B
the antimony becomes an acceptor atom
C
there will be more free electrons than holes in the semiconductor
D
its resistance is increased

Explanation

If a small amount of antimony is added to germanium crystal, crystal becomes n-type semiconductor. Hence, there will be more free electrons than holes.
