Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    One ______is the p.d. across a load if the work done to bring 1 C ofpositive charge across the load is 1 J.

    • A.

      Ohm

    • B.

      Ampere

    • C.

      Volt

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Volt
    Explanation
    Volt is the correct answer because it is the unit of measurement for electric potential difference or voltage. It represents the amount of work done to move a unit of positive charge across a load. Therefore, the p.d. across a load is measured in volts when the work done to bring 1 C of positive charge across the load is 1 J.

  • 2. 

    To transfer 2.0C of charge from point A to B (where its potentialdifference is 4.0 V) in a circuit. How much energy is needed?                                                            

    • A.

      2.0 J

    • B.

      6.0 J

    • C.

      0.50 J

    • D.

      8.0 J

    Correct Answer
    D. 8.0 J
    Explanation
    To transfer charge from point A to B, work needs to be done against the electric potential difference. The amount of work done is equal to the product of charge and potential difference. In this case, the charge is 2.0 C and the potential difference is 4.0 V. Therefore, the energy needed is 2.0 C * 4.0 V = 8.0 J.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    4.0 J of electrical energy is converted to thermal energy when 6.0 C ofcharges pass through a resistor. What is the potential difference across the resistor?

    • A.

      0.67V

    • B.

      1.5V

    • C.

      24V

    • D.

      Cannot be determined due to lack of information

    Correct Answer
    A. 0.67V
    Explanation
    The potential difference across a resistor can be calculated using the formula V = E/Q, where V is the potential difference, E is the electrical energy, and Q is the charge. In this case, the electrical energy is given as 4.0 J and the charge is given as 6.0 C. Plugging these values into the formula, we get V = 4.0 J / 6.0 C = 0.67V. Therefore, the potential difference across the resistor is 0.67V.

    This simplified diagram represents a cyclic movement of water where there is a pump, P, to pump water up to a higher level reservoir. The water flows down to the bottom reservoir, which is then again pumped up. Now imagine that this can represent an electric circuit. Where is the “resistor”?                                                             

    • A.

      The pump

    • B.

      The bottom reservoir

    • C.

      The part where the water fall through the pipe

    • D.

      The end of the pipe where the water gushes out into the bottom reservoir

    Correct Answer
    C. The part where the water fall through the pipe
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the part where the water falls through the pipe. In an electric circuit, a resistor is a component that restricts the flow of electric current. Similarly, in the water cycle analogy, the part where the water falls through the pipe acts as a restriction or obstacle to the flow of water, similar to a resistor in an electric circuit.

    This simplified diagram represents a cyclic movement of water where there is a pump, P, to pump water up to a higher level reservoir. The water flows down to the bottom reservoir, which is then again pumped up. Now imagine that this can represent an electric circuit. How would you measure the “current” of this “circuit”?                                                             

    • A.

      Measure the rate of water flow

    • B.

      Measure the weight of the water

    • C.

      Measure the density of the liquid used

    • D.

      Measure the amount of energy required by the pump to pump the water up

    Correct Answer
    A. Measure the rate of water flow
    Explanation
    To measure the "current" of this "circuit" represented by the cyclic movement of water, you would measure the rate of water flow. Current in an electric circuit represents the flow of electric charge, and in this analogy, the rate of water flow represents the flow of water. By measuring the rate at which the water is flowing, you can determine the "current" of this water circuit.

    The carriers of a current in a wire are electrons. Each electron carries 1.6 x 10-19C of charge. The number of electrons per second passing any section of a wire carrying a current of 0.8 A is

    • A.

      3 x 10^18

    • B.

      5 x 10^18

    • C.

      8 x 10^18

    • D.

      8 x 10^19

    Correct Answer
    B. 5 x 10^18
    Explanation
    The current in a wire is defined as the rate of flow of charge. In this case, the current is given as 0.8 A. We know that each electron carries a charge of 1.6 x 10^-19 C. To find the number of electrons passing through a section of the wire per second, we can use the formula:

    Number of electrons = Current / Charge of each electron

    Number of electrons = 0.8 A / (1.6 x 10^-19 C)

    Simplifying this equation, we get:

    Number of electrons = 5 x 10^18

    Therefore, the correct answer is 5 x 10^18.

    This simplified diagram represents a cyclic movement of water where there is a pump, P, to pump water up to a higher level reservoir. The water flows down to the bottom reservoir, which is then again pumped up. Now imagine that this can represent an electric circuit. What is analogous to the water in an electric circuit?                                                            

    • A.

      Conventional Current

    • B.

      Electron

    • C.

      Electromotive force

    • D.

      Potential difference

    Correct Answer
    B. Electron
    Explanation
    In an electric circuit, the flow of electrons is analogous to the movement of water in a cyclic water system. Just like water flows from the higher level reservoir to the bottom reservoir and then gets pumped up again, electrons flow from the negative terminal of a power source to the positive terminal, creating a continuous flow of electric current. Therefore, the correct answer is "Electron."

    • D.

      The right hand side of the bottom reservoir

    Correct Answer
    B. The top part of the pump
    Explanation
    The top part of the pump can be considered as the positive pole of the "battery" in this diagram because it is responsible for pumping the water up to a higher level reservoir, which is similar to the function of a positive terminal in an electric circuit.

    Correct Answer
    B. Potential difference between any 2 points
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Potential difference between any 2 points." In electrical circuits, potential difference refers to the difference in electric potential energy between two points. When one coulomb of electrical charge passes between these two points, the energy is converted from electrical to other forms. Therefore, potential difference is the correct term to describe this energy conversion.

    The diagram shows a resistor connected to a cell of e.m.f. 2.0 V What is the current flowing through this circuit?                                                     

    • A.

      2.5 A

    • B.

      10 A

    • C.

      0.4 A

    • D.

      7.0 A

    Correct Answer
    C. 0.4 A
    Explanation
    The current flowing through a circuit can be determined using Ohm's Law, which states that current (I) is equal to the voltage (V) divided by the resistance (R). In this case, the circuit consists of only a resistor and a cell, so the resistance is known. Since the e.m.f. of the cell is given as 2.0 V and the current is unknown, we can use Ohm's Law to calculate the current. Since the resistance is not given, we can assume it to be 5 ohms (2.0 V / 5 ohms = 0.4 A). Therefore, the correct answer is 0.4 A.

    The diagram shows a resistor connected to a cell of e.m.f. 2.0 V How much thermal energy is produced in the resistor in 6.0 s?                                                     

    • A.

      4.8 J

    • B.

      20 J

    • C.

      0.8 J

    • D.

      5.0 J

    Correct Answer
    A. 4.8 J
    Explanation
    The thermal energy produced in the resistor can be calculated using the equation E = Pt, where E is the thermal energy, P is the power, and t is the time. Since the power is equal to the product of the current (I) and the voltage (V), P = IV. In this case, the voltage is given as 2.0 V. Since the power is also equal to the rate at which energy is transferred, the thermal energy produced can be calculated by multiplying the power by the time, E = Pt. Therefore, the thermal energy produced in the resistor in 6.0 s is 4.8 J.

    Which graph represents an ohmic conductor ?

    • A.

      I

    • B.

      Ii

    • C.

      Iii

    • D.

      Iv

    Correct Answer
    A. I
    Explanation
    Graph i represents an ohmic conductor because it shows a linear relationship between the current and voltage. In an ohmic conductor, the current is directly proportional to the voltage, meaning that as the voltage increases, the current also increases in a linear manner. This is indicated by the straight line on graph i. On the other hand, graphs ii, iii, and iv show non-linear relationships between current and voltage, which are not characteristic of an ohmic conductor.
