Important Questions and Preparation Tips – Electrostatics

Important Concepts:   Some previous years solved questions are given below:

Question 1:

A galvanometer having internal resistance 10Ω requires 0.01 A for a full scale defection. To convert this galvanometer to a voltmeter of full-scale deflection at 120V, we need to connect a resistance of

(A) 11990 Ω in series

(B) 11990 Ω in parallel

(C) 12010 Ω in series

(D) 12010 Ω in parallel

Solution 1:

We have,

V = 120

Ig = 0.01 A Hence, the correct option is (A).

Question 2:

Four cells, each of emf E and internal resistance r, are connected in series across an external resistance R. By mistake one of the cells is connected in reverse. Then the current in the external circuit is Solution 2: Hence, the correct option is (A).

Question 3:

A circuit consists of three batteries of emf E1 = 1 V, E2 = 2 V and E3 = 3 V and internal resistances 1 Ω, 2 Ω and 1 Ω respectively which are connected in parallel as shown in the figure. The potential difference between points P and Q is (A) 1.0 V

(B) 2.0 V

(C) 2.2 V

(D) 3.0 V

Solution 3:

The batteries are connected in parallel so, the effective resistance is given as: So, the potential difference between two point P and Q = 2 Volt

Hence, the correct option is (B).

Question 5:

Two cells A and B of e.m.f 2V and 1.5V respectively, are connected as shown in figure through an external resistance 10Ω. The internal resistance of each cell is 5 Ω. The potential difference EA and EB across the terminals of the cells A and B respectively are Solution 5:

Let i be the current flowing through the circuit

On applying KVL, Hence, the correct option is (C).
