Q12. Discuss three basic postulates of Bohr’s model of atom.  

Ans. Basic postulates of Bohr’s model of atom-  

(i) In an atom, the electrons revolve around the nucleus in certain definite circular paths called orbits, or shells.

(ii) Each shell or orbit corresponds to a definite energy. Therefore, these circular orbits are also known as energy levels or energy shells.

(iii) The orbits or energy levels are characterized by an integer not, where, n can have values 1, 2, 3, 4……. The integer not (= 1, 2, 3…) is called the quantum number of respective orbit. The orbits are numbered as 1, 2, 3, 4………… etc., starting from the nucleus side. Thus, the orbit for which n=1 is the lowest energy level.

Q13. What is photoelectric effect ? Discuss the effect of intensity of light on photoelectric current.  

Ans. The photoelectric effect refers to the emission, or ejection of electrons from the surface of a metal in response to incident light. This takes place because of the energy of incident photons of light have energy more than the work potential of the metal surface, ejecting electrons with positive kinetic energy. These electrons are used as the current and it is known as photo electric current. 

Intensity has nothing to do with the energy of the photon. Therefore, the intensity of the radiation is increased, the rate of emission increases but there will be no change in the kinetic energy of electrons. With an increasing number of emitted electrons, the value of the photoelectric current increases.

Q14. What is polarization by reflection ? Deduce Brewster Law ?  

Ans. Polarization by reflection– When light shines at a certain angle, it is possible for the reflected light to become completely polarized. This phenomenon is called polarization by reflection. It is the plane of polarisation parallel to the plane of the interface. 

Polarization by Brewster’s law– Brewster’s angle is an angle of incidence at which light with a particular polarization is perfectly transmitted through a transparent dielectric surface with no reflection. When unpolarized light is incident at this angle, the light that is reflected from the surface is therefore perfectly polarized. A glass plate or a stack of plates placed in a light beam at Brewster’s angle can thus be used as a polarizer.


Q15. A series L-C-R circuit with R = 44 Ω, C = 8 µF and L = 50 H is connected to a variable frequency 220 V ac supply. Calculate angular frequency, impedance and current at resonance condition. 

Ans. ω = √1/LC = √1/50H×8µF = 50 Hz 

Current at resonance;  I = V/R = 220V/44Ω = 5A 

Z = R =  44 Ω 

I = V/Z = V/R 

Z = √R²+(XL-XC)² ;  X= X

so, Z = R = 44 Ω

Q16. Define ampere circuital law ? Write expression for magnetic field at a distance r from a straight infinite wire carrying current I. Which rule is used to determine the direction of this magnetic field ? 

Ans. Ampere’s Circuital Law states the relationship between the current and the magnetic field created by it. This law states that the integral. Ampere’s circuital law states that line integral of the magnetic field forming a closed loop around the current (I) carrying wire, in the plane normal to the current, is equal to the μ times the net current passing through the close loop. 

Biot Savart law states that If there is a current carrying wire and a point P close to it, then the intensity of the magnetic field produced at that point, due to a very small part of the wire is given by

dB= μ/4π × IdLsinθ/r² 

B = ∫dB = μ/4π × I(2πr)/r² = μI/2r 

The direction of the magnetic field can be determined by Fleming’s right-hand rule. According to this rule, if a straight wire conductor is held in the right hand such that the thumb indicates the direction of the current, then the direction in which the fingers encircle around will indicate the direction of the magnetic field. 

Q17. Explain the principle of Potentiometer. Draw the labelled circuit diagram for comparing of emf of two cells ?

Ans. We know that a potentiometer is used to determine the internal resistance of a cell. Besides this, we will have a determination of potential difference using a potentiometer.

Principle : The basic working principle of this is based on the fact that the fall of the potential across any portion of the wire is directly proportional to the length of the wire, provided wire has a uniform cross-sectional area and the constant current flowing through it. 

A potentiometer basically works on the principle of varying the resistance of a fixed resistor by moving the sliding/rotary contact or the wiper. By displacing the position of the wiper, the length of the resistive wire is altered. This change in the length of the wire is proportional to the change in the resistance offered to the circuit. In a potentiometer, input is applied across the fixed terminals, whereas the output is noted between the movable and a fixed terminal.

E1/E2 = L1/L2 

Q18. Find expression for electric field intensity due to a uniformly charged thin spherical shell at a point outside the shell.  

Ans. Let P be the point outside the shell at a distance r from the centre. Since the surface of the sphere is spherically symmetric, the charge is distributed uniformly throughout the surface. 

A spherical Gaussian surface with the radius r and total charge enclosed on this Gaussian surface Q is selected. If Q > 0, then the electric field is radially pointed outward and if Q < 0, then the electric field is radially pointed inward.

From Gauss law, we know that 

∫E.dA = Q/ε 

E.4πr² = Q/ε

E = 1/4πε × Q/r²

We can say that the electric field at a point outside the shell will remain the same if the entire charge Q is concentrated at the centre of the spherical shell. 

Q19. Explain the magnetic hysteresis loop ? What are its uses ?  

Ans. The hysteresis loop shows the relationship between the magnetic flux density and the magnetizing field strength. The loop is generated by measuring the magnetic flux coming out from the ferromagnetic substance while changing the external magnetizing field. 


(i) Several applications of hysteresis are found in ferromagnets. It is mostly used to retain a memory, for example, hard disks, magnetic tape, and credit cards.

(ii) Hysteresis is applied in many artificial systems such as in thermostats and Schmitt triggers which are designed to prevent unwanted frequent or unwanted rapid switching.

(iii) A hysteresis is sometimes intentionally made part to computer algorithms.

(iv) Hysteresis can be observed when decreasing the angle of attack of a wing after stall, regarding the lift and drag coefficients. 



Explain the principle of moving coil galvanometer ? How it can be converted to an ammeter ?  

Ans. Moving Coil Galvanometer– A moving coil galvanometer is an instrument which is used to measure electric currents. It is a sensitive electromagnetic device which can measure low currents even of the order of a few microamperes.

Principle– When a current flows through the coil, a torque acts on it. The magnetic torque tends to rotate the coil. Spring provides a counter torque that balances the magnetic torque resulting in a steady angular deflection. 

Convert Galvanometer to Ammeter– A galvanometer is converted into an ammeter by connecting it in parallel with a low resistance called shunt resistance. Suitable shunt resistance is chosen depending on the range of the ammeter.

Q20. Draw a labelled ray diagram showing the image formation in an astronomical telescope. Define its magnifying power and write expression for it. 

Ans. Astronomical Telescope– Astronomical Telescope is used to observe objects which are very far from us. Telescopes produce magnified images of distant objects. It produces virtual and inverted image and is used to see heavenly bodies like sun, stars, planets etc. so the inverted image does not affect the observation.

Principle– It is based on the principle that when rays of light are made to incident on an objective from a distant object, the objective forms the real and inverted image at its focal plane. The eye lens is so adjusted that the final image is formed at least distance of distinct vision.

Construction– The refracting type astronomical telescope consists of two convex lenses one of which is called the objective and the other eye piece. The objective is a convex lens of large focal length and large aperture. It is generally a combination of two lenses in contact so as to reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations. The eye piece is also a convex lens but of short focal length and small aperture. The objective is mounted at one end of a brass tube and the eye piece at the other end in a smaller tube which can slide inside the bigger tube carrying the objective. 

Magnifying Power– The magnifying power of a refracting type astronomical telescope is defined as the ratio of angle subtended by the final image at eye to the angle subtended by the object at eye.
