### Plus Two Physics Alternating Current NCERT Text Book Questions and Answers

Question 1.
A 100Ω resistor is connected to a 220V, 50 Hz ac supply.

1. What is the rms value of current in the circuit?
2. What is the net power consumed over a full cycle?

Given R = 100Ω, Eν = 220V, ν = 50 Hz.
1. Since lν = $$\frac{E_{ν}}{12}$$
So lν = $$\frac{220}{100}$$ = 2.2 A

2. P = Eν Iν = 220 × 2.2
or P = 484 W. Question 2.

1. The peak voltage of an ac supply is 300V. What is the rms voltage?
2. The rms value of current in an ac circuit is 10A. What is the peak current?

1. Given E0 = 300 V, E = ?
Since Eν = $$\frac{E_{0}}{\sqrt{2}}$$ = 0.707 × 300
or Eν = 212.1V.

2. Given Iν = 10A, I0=?
Since l0 = $$\sqrt{2}$$ Eν = 1.414 × 10
or I = 14.14 A.

Question 3.
A 44 mH inductor is connected to 220V, 50 Hz ac supply. Determine the rms value of the current in the circuit.
Given L = 44 mH = 44 × 10-3H
Eν = 220V, ν = 50Hz, Iν = ?
Since Iν = $$\frac{E_{ν}}{x_{L}}=\frac{220}{\omega L}$$ or Iν = 15.9A. Question 4.
A 60µF capacitor is connected to a 11OV, 60 Hz ac supply. Determine the rms value of the current in the circuit.
Given C = 60µF = 60 × 10-6F, Eν = 110V, ν = 60 Hz.
Since Iν = $$\frac{E_{ν}}{x_{c}}$$
∴ Iν = ωCEν
= 2pνCEν = 2 × 3.142 × 60 × 60 × 10-6 × 110
= 2.49A or
Iν = 2.49V.

Question 5.
In Exercises 7.3 and 7.4, what is the net power absorbed by each circuit over a complete cycle. Explain your answer.
In both the cases the net power consumed is zero because in both the cases.
Net power consumed P = Eν lνcosΦ
and Φ =90°
∴ P = 0 (in each case). Question 6.
Obtain the resonant frequency of a series LCR circuit with L=2.0H, C=32µV and R = 10?. What is the Q-value of this circuit?
Given L = 2.0H, C = 32µF = 32 × 10-6F
R = 10Ω, Q = ?, ω0 = ?
Resonant frequency Question 7.

Question 1.
The voltage-current values obtained from a transformer constructed by a student is shown in the following table. 1. Identify the transformer as step up or step down.
2. How much power is wasted by the transformer?
3. What are the possible energy losses in a transformer?
4. If the input voltage is 48v and input current is 1 A, is it possible to light 240v, 100w bulb using the above transformer. Justify.

1. Step down transformer.

2. Power loss = 200w -10w = 190w

3. The possible energy losses in a transformer:

• Eddy current loss
• Copper loss
• Hysteries loss
• Flux leakage

4. In this case input power = VI = 48 × 1 = 48W.
If transformer does not waste energy, input power =out put power.
Hence maximum output power 48W. But bulb requires 100w. Hence the bulb does not glow with this low input power. Question 2.
