Class 10 Physics Assignment for Electricity


Question : Four different measuring instruments are shown below. Out of these, the instrument that can be used for measuring current is/are the instruments labelled as 
(a) II and IV with IV more reliable of the two
(b) II and III with II more reliable of the two
(c) I and III with III more reliable of the two
(d) I and IV with IV more reliable of the two
Answer : C
Explanation: Option with 4 and 2 is wrong as they are with voltmeters. Option I is nearest. The best option may be I and III with III more accuracy of the two since L.C. is less.
Question : Three students X, Y and Z, while performing the experiment to study the dependence of current on the potential difference across a resistor, connect the ammeter (A), the battery (B), the key (K) and the resistor (R), in series, in the following three different orders.
X → B, K, R, A, B
Y → B, A, K,R,B
Z → B, R, K, A, B
Who has connected them in the correct order ? 
(a) Z
(b) X
(c) X, Y and Z

Answer : C 
Explanation: The current in the series does not depend upon order in which these instruments are connected. Where they are connected does not matter.
They should be in series for the flow to be observed.

Question : Why closed path is required for the flow of current? 
Answer : A closed path is required for the flow of current so that charges can move in a particular direction in a given circuit. But if path is not closed means circuit is open, then there is air between the gap, and we know that air is an insulator for flow of charges, so the current stop flowing in the circuit.

Question : An electric motor takes 5A from a 220V line. Determine the power of the motor and the energy consumed in 2 h. 
Answer :  Power = P = VI = 220 × 5 = 1,100 Ω
Energy consumed in 2 h (2 × 60 × 60s) E = Pt
E = (1,100) (2 × 60 × 60) = 7,920,000 J
E = 7.92 × 106 J.

Answer :  
Question : Redraw the circuit putting an ammeter to measure the current through the resistors and voltmeter to measure the potential difference across 12 Ω resistor. what would be the reading in the ammeter and the voltmeter? 
Answer :  
Modified circuit is as shown. Since 5Ω, 8 Ω and 12 Ω are in series, therefore the total resistance in series.
Rs = R1 + R2 + R3 = 5 + 8 + 12 = 25Ω
Current through circuit I = V/R = 6/25 = 0.24A
Reading of ammeter = 0.24A
= I. R.= 0.24 x 12
= 2.88Ω
Question : Three resistors are connected as shown in Fig. Through a resistor of 5 ohms; a current of 1A is flowing. 
i. what is the current through the other two resistors?
ii. what is the potential difference (P.D.) across AB and AC?
iii. what is the total resistance?
Answer :  Let us first find the total resistance. Now resistance of 10 Ω and 15 Ω are in parallel.
If Rp is the effective resistance between B and C, then
Again AB and BC are in series.
Therefore, the total resistance = Resistance between A and B plus resistance between B and C.
i.e. Total resistance = 5 Ω + 6 Ω = 11 Ω
Potential difference between A and B = IR = 1 x 5 = 5 V
Potential difference between B and C = 1 x 6 = 6 V
Potential difference between A and C = 1 x 11 = 11 V
Current through A and B = 1 A
This current divides into two parts, one part I1 passing through 10 Ω and other part I2
passing through 15 Ω each producing a P.D. of 6V (between B and C)
I1 (10) = 6 or I1 = 6/10 = 0.6 A and I2(15) = 6 or I2 = 6/15 = 0.4 A
