2. How many electrons are there in ‒1 coulomb?

a) 6.25 × 1018

b) 62.5 × 1018

c) 6.023 × 1023

d) 1.6 × 10-19

Sol: (a)

As, q = n e.

Given, q = 1 C, e = 1.6 × 10‒19 C and n =?

Therefore, n = 0.625 × 1019 = 6.25 × 1018.

3. The S.I. unit for surface integral of electric field is:

a) V/m

b) V

c) NC-1m

d) Cm-3

Sol: (a)

The SI unit of electric field is NC-1 or V/m.

4. The value of charge q at the centre of two equal and like charges Q so that the three are in equilibrium is:

a) Q

b) +Q/4

c) –Q/4

d) Q/2

Sol: (c)

Let the charges be placed at points A and B separated by a distance 2 x as shown in figure. If a charge q is placed at the centre then, the system will be in equilibrium if net force on each charge is zero.

We will find net force on charge Q at point B and equate it to zero 5. When an electric dipole is placed in a uniform electric field, it experiences

a) Force as well as torque

b) Torque but no net force

c) Force but no torque

d) Neither any force nor any torque

Sol: b)

When an electric dipole is placed in a uniform electric field then, net force on the dipole is zero and net torque is not zero.

NCERT Exemplar Solutions for CBSE Class 12 Physics 7. VAand VBare two points on a curved equipotential surface then,

a) VA> VB

b) VA< VB

c) VA= VB

d) Relation between the two can’t be predicted

Sol: (d)

All points in an equipotential surface have same potential. Therefore, VA = VB.  10. Electric filed is zero in case of a charged conducting shell at any:

a) Interior point

b) Outer point

c) Beyond 2 meters

d) Beyond 10 meters

Sol: a)

Electric field inside a charged conductor is always zero.
