• Q3

A 500 charge is at the center of a square of side 10 cm. Find the work done in moving a charge of 10 C between two diagonally opposite points on the square.

Marks:1
##### Answer:

According to the given condition, we have

VOA = VOB

Therefore,  work done is given by

W = q( VOB - VOA)

Hence, W is zero.

The plot of the variation of potential difference across a combination of three identical cells in series, versus current is as shown below. What is the emf of each cell?

Marks:1
##### Answer:

Since all the cells are connected in series so current flowing through each cell is same. Therefore total resistance given by
Rt = 6/1 = 6
Internal resistance of each cell is 6/3 = 2
Now e.m.f. of each cell is  = 2 x 1A = 2 volts

A glass lens of refractive index 1.5 is placed in a trough of liquid. What must be the refractive index of the liquid in order to make the lens disappear?

Marks:1
##### Answer:

If refractive index of liquid is equal to the refractive index of material of the lens then only the lens become disappear.
i.e. refractive index of the liquid = 1.5

State the reason, why heavy water is generally used as a moderator in a nuclear reactor.

Marks:1
##### Answer:

Heavy water is rich in hydrogen, which contain more protons (having mass nearly equal to neutrons). Velocities of neutrons get interchanged with these protons. The neutrons are thus slowed down. Therefore heavy water is generally used as a moderator in a nuclear reactor.

How does the fringe width of interference fringes change, when the apparatus of Young’s experiment is kept in a liquid of refractive index 1.3?

Marks:1
##### Answer:

When the entire apparatus is immersed in a transparent medium of refractive index, then fringe width
' =/

' =/1.3
So fringe width decreases.

• Q9

A ray of light passing through an equilateral triangular glass prism from air undergoes minimum deviation when angle of incidence is 3/4th of the angle of prism. Calculate the speed of light in the prism.

Marks:2
##### Answer:

We have,
A= 600
i1= i2 = (3/4)A = 450  (according to given condition)
Determining the value of ,
A + = i1+i2.

or 600 = 450+450.

= 900 - 600 = 300.

The speed of light is given by,

• Q10

Distinguish between an intrinsic semiconductor and p-type semiconductor. Give reason, why, a p-type semiconductor is electrically neutral, although nh>>ne ?

Marks:2
##### Answer:

An intrinsic semiconductor is a pure semiconductor where as a p-type semiconductor is a semiconductor doped with trivalent impurity atoms like boron or gallium. An intrinsic semiconductor has same number of holes and electrons while in a p-type semiconductor the number of holes is greater than the number of electrons. Each hole is associated with a nearby negative-charged dopant ion, and thus semiconductor remains electrically neutral as a whole .
