Question 6.
A capacitor made of two parallel plates, each of area ‘A’ and separation W is charged by an external d.c.-source. Show that during charging, the displacement current inside the capacitor is the same as the current charging the capacitor. [2]
Answer:

From Ampere’s law,
$\oint \mathrm{B} d l=\mu_{0} i(t)$
Let the case-1, where a point P is considered outside the capacitor charging.
From Ampere’s law magnetic field at point P will be :

Now, take case-2 where shape of surface under consideration covers capacitor’s plate as we consider there is no current through capacitor then this value of B will be zero.

Case-2
Hence, there is a contradiction.
Therefore, this Ampere’s law was modified with addition of displacement current inside capacitor.

Where, id is displacement current.
During charging of capacitor, outside the capacitor, ic (conduction current) flows and inside id (displacement current) flows.

Question 11.
Under which conditions can a rainbow be observed? Distinguish between a primary and a secondary rainbow. [2]
Answer :
The rainbow is an example of the dispersion of sunlight by the water drops in the atmosphere. This is a phenomenon due to combined effect of dispersion, refraction and reflection of Sunlight by spherical water droplets of rain. The conditions for observing a rainbow are that the Sun should be shining in one part of the sky (say near western horizontal while it is raining in the opposite part of the sky (say eastern horizon).

Difference between Primary and Secondary Rainbow:

 S.N. Primary Rainbow Secondary Rainbow 1 Three Step process (Re­fraction Reflection and Refraction). Four Step process (Refraction-Reflec­tion and Refraction) 2 Appearance intensity better than Second­ary. Appearance inten­sity lesser than Pri­mary. 3. Single reflection oc­curs. Double reflection oc­curs. 4. 2 Degree range occurs. 3 Degree range. 5. Fig-1 Fig-2

Question 12.
Explain the following : [2]
(a) Sky appears blue.
(b) The Sun appears reddish at
(i) sunset,
(ii) sunrise.
Answer:
(a) Light from the sun reaches the atmosphere that is comprised of the tiny particles of the atmosphere. These act as a prism and cause the different components to scatter. As blue light travels in shorter and smaller waves in comparison to the other colours of spectrum. It is scattered the most , causing the sky to appear bluish.

(b) The molecules of the atmosphere and other particles that are smaller than the longest wavelength of visible light are more effective in scattering light of shorter wavelengths than light of longer wavelengths. The amount of scattering is inversely proportional to the fourth power of the wavelength. (Rayleigh Effect) Light from the Sun near the horizon passes through a greater distance in the Earth’s atmosphere than does the light received when the Sun is overhead. The correspondingly greater scattering of short wavelengths accounts for the reddish appearance of the Sun at rising and at setting.

Answer:

(a) Source frequency will be same as resonance frequency of LC circuit,

(c) As at resonance frequency impedance of combination of L and C is 0.
Hence, voltage drop across LC combination is zero at resonating frequency.

Question 14.
Give reason to explain why n and p regions of a Zener diode are heavily doped. Find the current through the Zener diode in the circuit given below : [3]
(Zener breakdown voltage is 15 V)

Answer :
By heavily doping both p and n sides of the junction, depletion region formed is very thin, i.e. < 106 m. Hence, electric field across the junction is very high (~5 × 106 V/m) even for a small reverse bias voltage. This can lead to a break down during reverse biasing.

Question 15.
Draw a labelled diagram of cyclotron. Explain its working principle. Show that cyclotron frequency is independent of the speed and radius of the orbit. [3]
OR
(a) Derive, with the help of a diagram, the expression for the magnetic field inside a very long solenoid having n turns per unit length carrying a current I.
(b) How is a toroid different from a solenoid?
Answer:
Cyclotron : Cyclotron is a device by which the positively charged particles like protons, deutrons, etc. can be accelerated.
Principle : Cyclotron works on the principle that a positively charged particle can be accelerated by making it to cross the same electric field repeatedly with the help of a magnetic field.

Construction : The construction of a simple cyclotron is shown in figure above, it consist of two-semi cylindrical boxes D1 and D2 , which are called Dees They are enclosed in an evacuated chamber.

Chamber is kept between the poles of a powerful magnet so that uniform magnetic field acts perpendicular to the plane of the dees. An alternating voltage is applied in the gap between the two dees by the help of a high frequency oscillator. The electric field is zero inside the dees.

Working and theory : At a certain instant, let D1 be positive and D2 be negative. A proton from an ion source will be accelerated towards D2 , it describes a semi-circular path with a constant speed and is acted upon only by the magnetic field. The radius of the circular path is given by.

From the above equation it follows that frequency f is independent of both v and r and is called cyclotron frequency. Also if we make the frequency of applied a.c. equal to f, then every time the proton reaches the gap between the dees, the direction of electric field is reversed and proton receives a push and finally it gains very high kinetic energy. The proton follows a spiral path and finally gets directed towards the target and comes out from it
OR
(a) Magnetic field inside the solenoid

(b) Toroid is a form in which a conductor is wound around a circular body. In this case we get magnetic field inside the core but poles are absent because circular body don’t have ends. Toroid is used in toroidal inductor, toroidal transformer.
Solenoid is a form in which conductor is wound around a cylindrical body with limb. In this case magnetic field creates two poles N and S. Solenoids have some flux leakage. This is used in relay, motors, electro-magnetes

Question 16.

(ii) to the right of the second sheet, and
(iii) between the two sheets. [3]
OR

(a) A charge q is placed at the center of the shell. Find out the surface charge density on the inner and outer surfaces of the shell.

(b) Is the electric field inside a cavity (with no charge) zero; independent of the fact whether the shell is spherical or not? Explain.
Answer:

Question 18.
A signal of low frequency fm is to be transmitted using a carrier wave of frequency fc . Derive the expression for the amplitude modulated wave and deduce expression for the lower and upper side bands produced. Hence, obtain the expression for modulation index. [3]

Question 19.
Draw a plot of a-particle scattering by a thin foil of gold to show the variation of the number of the scattered particles with scattering angle. Describe briefly how the large angle scattering explains the existence of the nucleus inside the atom, Explain with the help of impact parameter picture, how Rutherford scattering serves a powerful way to determine and upper limit on the size of the nucleus. [3]
Answer:

From the plot it is clear that Most of the a-particles passed through the foil,, only 0.14% of the incident a particles scatter by more than 1% and about 1 in 8000 deflect by more than 90° a-particles deflected backward due to strong repulsive force. This force will come from positive charge concentrated at the center as most of the particles get deflected by small angles.

The α-particles trajectory depends on collision’s impact parameter (b) for a given beam of a-particles, distribution of impact parameters as beam gets scattered in different directions with different probabilities.

fig.2 shows a-particle close to nucleus suffers large scattering. Impact parameter is minimum for head on collision a-particles rebound by 180°. Impact parameter is high, for undeviated a-particles. With deflection angle = 0°.

As these of nucleus was 10-14 m to 10-15 m w.r.t. 10-10 m size of an atom which is 10,000 to 100,000 times larger hence most of the space is empty, only small % of the incident particles rebound back indicates that number of α-particle goes head on collision. Hence most of the mass of the atom is concentrated in small volume. Thus, Rutherford scattering is a strong tool to determine upper limit to the size of the nucleus.

Question 20.
A 200 µF parallel plate capacitor having plate separation of 5 mm is charged by a 100 V dc source. It remains connected to the source. Using an insulated handle, the distance between the plates is doubled and a dielectric slab of thickness 5 mm and dielectric constant 10 is introduced between the plates. Explain with reason, how the
(i) capacitance,
(ii) electric field between the plates,
(iii) energy density of the capacitor will change ? [3]

As dielectric of 5 mm is inserted with spacing between the dielectric doubled then it will act as following-Fig.A and Fig-B.

Question 21.
Why is it difficult to detect the presence of an anti-neutrino during β -decay ? Define the term decay constant of a radioactive nucleus and derive the expression for its mean life in terms of the decay constant. [3]
OR
(a) State two distinguishing features of nuclear force.
(b) Draw a plot showing the variation of potential energy of a pair of nucleons as a function of their separation. Mark the regions on the graph where the force is
(i) attractive, and
(ii) repulsive.
Answer :
The symbols v and v present anti neutrino and neutrino respectively during j3 decay both are neutral particles. With very little or no mass. These particles are emitted from the nucleus along with the electron or positron during the decay process. Neutrions interact very weakly with matter, they can even penetrate the earth without being absorbed. It is for this reason that their detection is extremely difficult and their presence went unnoticed for long.

Decay constant:
Decay constant of a radioactive element is the reciprocal of time during which the number of atoms left in the sample reduces to 1/r times the number of atoms in the original sample.

Derivation of mean life :
Let us consider, No be the total number of radioactive atoms present initially. After time t, total no. of atoms present (undecayed) be N. In further dt time dN be the no. of atoms disintegrated. So, the life of dN atoms ranges lies between t + dt and dt. Since, dt is very small time, the most appropriate life of dN atom is t. So the total life of N atom = f.dN

Now, substituting the value of dN and changing the limit in equation (i) from (ii) we get

This expression gives the relation between mean life and decay constant. Hence, mean life is reciprocal of decay constant.
OR
(a) Distinguish features of nuclear force are :
(i) Nuclear forces are very strong binding forces (attractive force.)
(ii) It is independent of the charges protons and neutrons (charge independent.)
(iii) It depends on the spins of the nucleons.
(b) Plot showing variation of potential energy of a pair of nucleons as a function of separation mark attractive and repulsive region.

X-axis shows separation between pair of nucleons and Y-axis shows variation of potential energy w.r.t. separation
(in x 10-15 m).

Question 22.
A triangular prism of refracting angle 60° is made of a transparent material of refractive index 2/√3. A ray of light is incident normally on the face KL as shown in the figure. Trace the path of the ray as it passes through the prism and calculate the angle of emergence and angle of deviation. [3]

Answer:
From diagram it is clear that incidence angle at face KM is 60°.

Hence, critical angle is also 60°.
Therefore, incident light ray will not emerge from KM face due to total internal reflection at this face. Hence, it will move along face KM Angle of emergence = 90°.
Hence angle of deviation = 30° (from fig.)

Question 23.
Prove that in a common-emitter amplifier, the output and input differ in phase by 180°. In a transistor, the change of base current by 30 µA produces change of 0 02 V in the base-emitter voltage and a change of 4 mA in the collector current. Calculate the current amplification factor and the load resistance used, if the voltage gain of the amplifier is 400. [3]

Question 24.
Show, on a plot, variation of resistivity of
(i) a conductor, and
(ii) a typical semiconductor as a function of temperature.
Using the expression for the resistivity in . terms of number density and relaxation time between the collisions, explain how resistivity in the case of a conductor increases while it decreases in a semiconductor, with the rise of temperature. [3]
Answer:

n → number of free electrons
t → Average time between collisions.
In metals n is not dependent on temperature to any appreciable extent and thus the decrease in the value of x with rise in temperature causes p to increases.

for semiconductors, n increases with temperature. This increases more than compensates any decrease in t, so that for such materials, p decreases with temperature.

Section D

Question 25.
(a) Derive an expression for the induced
emf developed when a coil of N turns, and area of cross-section A, is rotated at a constant angular speed o in a uniform magnetic field B.
(b) A wheel with 100 metallic spokes each 0-5 m long is rotated with a speed of 120 rev/min in a plane normal to the horizontal component of the Earth’s magnetic field. If the resultant magnetic field at that place is 4 × 10-4 and the angle of dip at the place is 30°, find the emf induced between the axle and the rim of the wheel.  [5]
OR
(a) Derive the expression for the magnetic energy stored in an inductor when a current I develops in it. Hence, obtain the expression for the magnetic energy density.
(b) A square loop of sides 5 cm carrying a current of 0-2 A in the clockwise direction is placed at a distance of 10 cm from an indefinitely long wire carrying a current of 1 A as shown. Calculate
(i) the resultant magnetic force, and
(ii) the torque, if any, active on the loop.
Answer:
(a) As the armature coil is rotated in the magnetic field, angle 0 between the field and normal to the coil changes continuously. Therefore, magnetic flux linked with the coil changes. An e.m.f. is induced in the coil. According to Fleming’s right hand rule, current induced in AB is from A to B and it is from C to D in CD in the external circuit current flows from B2 to B1.
To calculate the magnitude of e.m.f. induced:
Suppose,
A → Area of each turn of the coil
N →  Number of turns in the coil
B →  Strength of magnetic field
θ → Angle which normal to the coil makes

Magnetic flux linked with the coil in this position.

(a) Energy stored in an inductor : When a current flows through an inductor, a back e.m.f. is set up which opposes the growth of current. So, work needs to be done against back e.m.f. (e) in building up the current. This work done is stored as magnetic potential energy.
Let, I be the current through the inductor L at any instant t.

The forces acting on all sides of the square due to current of infinite length wire are lying in the plane of coil. Thus, there is no net torque. Thus torque is zero.

Question 26.
Explain, with the help of a diagram, how plane polarized light can be produced by scattering of light from the Sun.
Two polaroids P1 and P2 are placed with their pass axes perpendicular to each other. Unpolarised light of intensity I is incident on P1.

(b) Two monochromatic waves having displacements y1= a cos ωf and y2 = a cos (ωt + Φ ) from two coherent sources interfere to produce an interference pattern. Derive the expression for the resultant in¬tensity and obtain the conditions for constructive and destructive interference.
(c) Two wavelengths of sodium light of 590 nm and 596 nm are used in turn to study the diffraction taking place at a single slit of aperture 2 x 10-6 m. If the distance between the slit and the screen is 1.5 m, calculate the separation between the positions of the second maxima of diffraction pattern obtained in the two cases.
Answer:
Molecules behave like dipole radiators and scatter no energy along the dipole axis by this way plane polarized light can be produced during scattering of light.

(a) Phenomenon of interference can’t be observed by illuminating two pin holes with two sodium lamps because these sources are not coherent source (it means they are not in same phase).
(b) Consider two monochromatic coherent sources A and B with waves y1 = a cos ωt and y2 = a cos (ωt + Φ ) respectively.

(ii) why is it generally preferred to obtain the balance length near the mid-point of the bridge wire.
(c) Calculate the potential difference across the 4 Ω resistor in the given electrical circuit, using Kirchhoff’s rules.

Answer:

Where, r is the internal resistance of cell.
(b) Potentiometer is preferred over voltmeter for measurement of e.m.f. of cell because a voltmeter draws some current from the cell while potentiometer draws no current. Therefore, the potentionmeter measures the actual e.m.f. of cell whereas voltmeter measures the terminal voltage.

Hence, balancing will not possible as it needs to cater 300 mV.
OR
(a) Meter bridge is the practical apparatus which works on principle of Wheat-Stone bridge. It is used to measure unknown resistance experimentally.

(b) (i) Connection between resistors are made of thick copper strips so that it will have maximum resistance and location of point of balance (D) will be more accurate which results in correct measurement of unknown resistance.

Case-2
Now take case-2 where shape surface under consideration covers capacitor’s plate as we consider there is no current through capacitor then this value of B will be zero.

Question 5.
Under what conditions does the phenomenon of total internal reflection take place? Draw a ray diagram showing how a ray of light deviates by 90° after passing through a right-angled isosceles prism. [2]

• Angle of incidence is equal or greater than critical angle.
i ≥ C
• When light travels from more denser medium to less denser medium.In case of right angle isosceles triangle if light rays fall normally on AB then light incident of face AC with angle of incidence > critical angle.

A p-n photo diode is fabricated from a semiconductor with a band gap of range of 2.5 to 2.8 eV. Calculate the range of wavelengths of the radiation which can be detected by the photo diode. [3]
Answer : Photo diode are reverse biased for working in photo-conductive mode. This reduces the response time because the additional reverse bias increases the width of the depletion layer, which decreases the junction capacitance. The reverse bias also increases the dark current without much change in the photo current.

The range of wavelengths of radiation which can be detected by the photo diode is 443.97 nm to 497.25 nm.
