Question 7.

Lenz’s law is the law of conservation of energy. Explain.

Answer:

Lenz’s Law : It states that the induced current produced in a circuit always flows in such a direction that it opposes the change or the cause that produces it.

According to Lenz’s law, the induced emf. opposes the change that produces it. It is this opposition against which we perform mechanical work in causing the change in magnetic flux. So, it is the mechanical energy which is converted into electrical energy. Thus, Lenz’s law is in accordance with the law of conservation of energy.

The soft iron have high retentivity and low coercivity. The area of hysteresis loop is small for soft iron, so it is used to make electro-magnet.

\(\phi=\frac{q}{\epsilon_{0}}\)

where ε_{0 }= permitivity of vacuum or air Expression for electric intensity due to infinitely long charged st. wire.

Consider a thin infinitely long st. line charge having a linear charge density λ placed along yy’.

To find electric field due to line charged at point P distance r from it, draw a cylindrical surface of radius r and length l about the line charge as its axis. The cylindrical surface may be treated as the Gaussian surface for the line charge.

If E is the magnitude of electric field at point P, then electric flux through the Gausssian surface is given by

Φ = E x Area of curved surface of cylinder

Φ = E x 2πrl …………………… (i)

According to Gauss’s theorem

Question 20.

Establish the formula for a lens

\(\frac{1}{f}=(\mu-1)\left(\frac{1}{\mathbf{R}_{1}}-\frac{1}{\mathbf{R}_{2}}\right)\)

Answer:

Lens Maker’s Formula :

Suppose L is a thin lens. The refractive index of the material of lens is n_{2} and it is placed in a medium of refractive index nx. The optical centre or lens is C and X. X is principal axis. The radii of curvature of the surfaces of the lens are Rj and R_{2} and their poles are P_{1} and P_{2}. The thickness of lens is t, which is very small. O is a point object on the principal axis of the lens. The distance of O from pole P_{1} is u. The first refracting surface forms the image of O at V at a distance v’ from P_{1}. From the refraction formula at spherical

The image I acts as a virtual object for second surface and after refraction at second surface, the final image is formed at I. The distance of I from pole P_{2} of second surface is v. The distance of virtual object (E) from pole P_{2} is (v -1).

For refraction at second surface, the ray is going from second medium (refractive index n_{1}) to first medium (refractive index (n_{2}), therefore from refraction formula at spherical surface.

\(\frac{n_{1}}{v}-\frac{n_{2}}{\left(v^{\prime}-1\right)}=\frac{n_{1}-n_{2}}{\mathrm{R}_{2}}\) …………………….. (ii)

For a thin lens t is negligible as compared to v’, therefore from (ii)

where \(\mathrm{l} n_{2}=\frac{n_{2}}{n_{1}}\) is refractive index of second medium (i.e., medium of lens) with respect to first medium.

If the object O is at infinity, the image will be formed at second focus i.e.,

if u = ∞, v = f_{2} = f , Therefore from equation (iv)

This is the formula of refraction for a thin lens. This is also called Len’s maker’s formula.

Question 21.

Define Interference of light. Derive an expression for Fringe-Width in Young’s double slits experiment.

Answer:

Interference of Light :

The phenomenon of non-uniform distribution of energy in the medium due to superposition of two light waves is called interference of light.

Expression for Fringe Width :

Consider that two coherent source of light S_{1} and S_{2} are placed at a distance apart and screen is placed at a distance D from the plane of two source. Let P be a point on the screen at distance y from the centre of screen. If .v is the path difference between light waves reaching point P from the source S_{1} and S_{2} then x = S_{2}P – S_{1}P

Fringe Width :

The spacing between any two consecutive fright fringes is equal to the width of dark frine therefore width of dark fringe.

Thus, in Young’s double slit experiment, the bright and dark fringes are of same width. It is denoted by β.

\(\beta=\frac{D \lambda}{d}\)

Question 22.

State KirchofTs laws. Applying these laws obtain the condition for balanced Wheatstone Bridge.

Answer:

Kirchoff’s law : First law :

In the network of conductor the algebraic sum of current meeting at a point is always zero. It also causes junction rule.

Second law :

It states that in any closed part of an electrical circuit, the algebraic sum of the emf is equal to the algebraic sum of the products of the resistance and current flowing through them. It is also called loop rule. This law is based on the law of conservation of energy.

Wheatstone bridge :

It is one of the accurate arrangements for measuring an unknown resistance. It is based on the principle of Kirchoff s law.

Four resistances P, Q, R and S are connected to form a quadrilateral of galvanometer and a tapping key k_{1} (called galvanometer) are connected between points B and D as shown in the figure.

Applying Kirchoff s second law, for closed part ABDA in the circuit I_{1} P + I_{g} g – (I – I_{1}) S = 0

where g is the resistance of galvanometer In the balanced state I_{g} = 0

Applying Kirchoff s law in closed part BDCB

From equation (i) and (ii)

\(\frac{P}{S}=\frac{Q}{R}\left[S=\frac{P}{Q} \cdot R\right]\)

Thus unknown resistance can be calculated.

Question 23.

State Biot-Savart law. Applying this law obtain expression of magnetic Held at a point on the axis of a circular coil carrying electric current.

Answer:

Biot-Savart law :

This law establish the relation between magnetic field and current.

Let xy is aonductor in which current I is flowing from v to y. P is the point at the distance r and at this point magnetic field \(\overrightarrow{d B}\) depends upon following factor :

where μ_{0} is permeability of vacuum or air.

Magnetic field at the axis of a circular loop :

Consider a circular loop of radius R carrying current I, with its plane perpendicular to the plane of paper. Let P be a point of observation on the axis of this circular loop at a distance x from its centre O. Consider a small element of length dl of the coil at point A. The magnitude of the magnetic induction \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{dB}}\) at point P due to this element is given by

The direction of \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{dB}}\) is perpendicular to the plane containing \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{dl}}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{r}}\) is given by Right hand screw rule. As the angle between I \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{dl}}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{r}}\) is 90°, the magnitude of the magnetic induction \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{dB}}\) is given by,

\(\overrightarrow{d B}=\frac{\mu_{0} I}{4 \pi} \frac{d l \sin 90^{\circ}}{r^{2}}=\frac{\mu_{0} I d l}{4 \pi r^{2}}\)

If we consider the magnetic induction produced by the whole of the circular coil, then by symmetry the components of magnetic induction perpendicular to the axis will be cancelled out, while those parallel to the axis will be added up. Thus the resultant magnetic induction \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) at axial point P is along the axis and may be evaluated as follows :

The component of \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{dB}}\) along the axis,

Therefore the magnitude of resultant magnetic induction at axial point P due to the whole circular coil is given by

Question 24.

What is Zener diode? Explain its use in a Voltage regulator.

Answer:

Zener diode :

The specially designed Junction diode, which can operate in the reverse breakdown voltage region continuously without being damaged are called Zener diode.

Symbol of Zener diode

Zener diode as a voltage regulator :

The use of Zener diode is based on the fact that in reverse break down region, a very small change in voltage across the Zener diode produces a very large change in the current through the circuit.

If voltage is increased beyond Zener voltage, the resistance of the Zener diode drops considerably. Consider that the Zener diode and a resistance R, called dropping resistor are connected to fluctuating d.c. supply, such that the Zener diode is reverse biased. Whenever voltage across the diode tends to increase, the current through the diode rises out of proportion and causes a sufficient increase in voltage drop across the dropping resistor. As a result, the output voltage lowers back to the normal value. Similarly, when the voltage across the diode tends to decrease, the current through the diode goes down out of proportion, so that the voltage drop across the dropping resistor is much less and now the output voltage is raised to normal.
