Important MCQs: Chapter 2 - Electrostatic Potential and Capacitance

1. A parallel plate capacitor has a capacitance of 50 p Fin air and 105 p F when immersed in oil. The dielectric constant of the oil is:

a) 5.1

b) 1

c) 2.1

d) ∞

Sol:

Given,

Capacity of capacitor, in air = Co = 50 p F, in water = Cm = 105 p F, dielectric constant = k.

Now, k = Cm/ Co = 105/50 = 2.1.

a) 100 V

b) 5 V

c) -20V

d) 20 V

Given,

Charge = q = ‒ 5 C, work done = W = 100 Joule.

Let V be the potential then,

As, W = q × V ⇒ 100 = ‒ 5 × V ⇒ V = ‒ 20 V.

NCERT Exemplar Solutions for CBSE Class 12 Physics  6. Three different capacitors are connected in series. Then:

a) They will have equal charges

b) They will have same potential

c) Both 1 & 2

d) None of these

When three capacitors are connected in series then the charge in each capacitor is same.

7. If Q is the charge on the capacitor and E is the electric field intensity between the plates, then the force between the plates of a capacitor is

a) QE

b) 2QE

c) QE/2

d) QE/4

If Q is the charge on the capacitor and E is the electric field intensity between the plates, then the force between the plates of a capacitor is equal to QE/2.

8. A hollow metal sphere of radius 10 cm is charged such that the potential on its surface is 80 volt. The potential at the centre of the sphere is:

a) 8 volt

b) 800 volt

c) 80 volt

d) Zero
