Question. Why is the tungsten metal more coiled in the bulb and not installed in straight p arallel wire form?
Answer: The coiled wire of tungsten increases the surface area of the wire in very less space so as to emit more light and helps in glowing with more intensity.

Question. What would you suggest to a student if while performing an experiment he finds that the pointer/needle of the ammeter and voltmeter do not coincide with the zero marks on the scales when circuit is open? No extra ammeter/voltmeter is available in the laboratory.
Answer: This is called the zero error of the scale of ammeter or voltmeter. If there is a zero error then this error is subtracted from the value that depicts when the circuit is closed otherwise accurate reading will not be recorded.

Question. Why we must keep the circuit closed for a relatively shorter time and open for a relatively longer time to ensure minimal changes in the values of resistance?
Answer: Due to heating effect of current, we must keep the circuit closed for a relatively shorter time and open for a relatively longer time to ensure minimal changes in the values of resistance.

Question. A torch bulb when cold has a resistance of 2·5 W. It draws a current 450 mA, when connected to a 6 V battery and glows brightly. Calculate the resistance of the bulb when glowing and explain the reason for the difference in resistance.
Answer: While glowing, I = 450 mA = 0.45 A, V = 6 volt
Using Ohm’s law, Resistance of bulb, R = V/1 = 6/0.45 = 13.33 W
The reason for the difference in resistance of bulb when cold (R = 2·5 W) and while glowing (R = 13·33 W), is that the resistance of filament of bulb increases with the increase in temperature.

Question. A uniform wire with a resistance of 32 W is divided into four equal parts and they are joined in parallel. Calculate the equivalent resistance of the parallel combination.

or R = 2 W.

Question :  Radhika is a student of class X. Her mother was making tea in an old electric kettle having metal case. When she switched on the power supply to the electric kettle. She got a severe electric shock. Radhika put off the main switch quickly and found that the connecting cord was torn, where her mother touched the metal case of the kettle.
She also found that the red and black wires of connecting cord were firmly connected to the two lower terminals of the power plug but the green wire of cord was not connected to the upper terminal of the plug. Radhika replaced the torn connecting cord and also connected to the three wires of cord firmly to the power plug terminals.
On the basis of the above passage, answer the following questions:
i. Why did Radhika put off the main switch quickly?
ii. Which wire red, black or green, touched the metal case of electric kettle when Radhika's mother got electric shock?
iii. What values are displayed by Radhika in this incident?
i. Radhika put off the main switch quickly to save her mother.

ii. Red wire which is at a high potential of  220V was touching the metal case of electric kettle.

iii. The values displayed by Radhika are:

a. Concern for her mother.

b. Presence of mind.

c. Knowledge of household wiring and daily life activities.

Question : What would you suggest to a student if  while performing an experiment he finds that the pointer hneedle of the ammeter and voltmeter do not coincide with the zero marks on the scales when circuit is open? No extra ammeter  voltmeter is available in the laboratory.
Answer :  As pointer of both the ammeter and voltmeter do not coincide with the zero marks on the scales when circuit is open, it indicates zero error in both the instruments. This zero error should be subtracted from the readings taken when circuit is closed. o get correct readings using these instruments, first we should find out the Least counts of both the nstruments, i.e., the minimum value which can be accurately measured.
Zero error = Initial reading (in open circuit) = Pointer reading (in open circuit) X Least count To get the actual reading, subtract zero error or the initial reading of the open circuit to the reading when you perform the experiment. Actual reading = Final reading - Initial reading

Question :  What is meant by resistance of a conductor? Name and define its SI unit. List the factors on Which the resistance of a wire affected, if (i) its length is doubled, (ii) its radius is doubled?
Answer : Property to oppose the flow of electric current is called resistance. Its SI unit is ohms.
If 1V potential difference is there and 1A current is flowing then it is said that there is 1 ohm resistance.

Thus, resistance will decrease by four times, if radius of wire is doubled.

Question : (A) Define electrical energy with S.I. unit?
(B) A household uses the following electric appliance;
(i) Refrigerator of rating 400w for ten hour each day.
(ii) Two electric fans of rating 80w each for twelve hours each day.
(iii) Six electric tubes of rating 15w each for six hours each day.
Calculate the electricity bill of the household for the month of june if the cost per unit of electric energy is ` 3.00.
Answer :  (A) The work done by a source of electricity to maintain current in a circuit is known as electrical energy. Its S.I. unit is Joule.
(B) (i) Electricity consumed by refrigerator = Power × Time
= 400 × 10
= 4000 Wh
= 4 kWh
(ii) Electricity consumed by two fans
= Power × Time
= 80 × 2 × 12
= 1920 Wh
= 1.92 kWh
(iii) Electricity consumed by six electric tubes
= 6 × 18 × 6
= 648 Wh
= 0.648 kWh
Total energy consumed in one day
= 4 + 1.92 + 0.648
= 6.548 kWh
Total energy consumed in one month
= 6.548 × 30
= 197.04 kWh
Cost of 1 unit (kWh)                                 = R 3.00
Cost of 197.04 kWh                                  = 197.04 × 3.00
Total electricity bill                                    = R 591.12

Question : How much current will an electric bulb draw from 220 V source if the resistance of the bulb is 1200Ω? If in place of bulb, a heater of resistance 100 Ω is connected to the sources, calculate the current drawn by it.

Question : Out of the two wires X and Y shown below, which one has greater resistance? Justify your answer.

Answer :  Wire ‘Y’ has greater resistance as it has more length than wire ‘X’. It is because resistance of wire is directly proportional to the length of wire.

Question : The figure below shows three cylindrical copper conductors along with their face areas and lengths. Discuss in which geometrical shape the resistance will be highest.

Question : Two wires A and B are of equal length and have equal resistance. If the resistivity of A is more than that of B, which wire is thicker and why? For the electric circuit given below calculate:

(i) Current in each resistor,
(ii) Total current drawn from the battery, and
(iii) Equivalent resistance of the Circuit

So, for different materials having same resistance per unit length, greater resistivity material wire has more cross-sectional area.
Hence, wire A is thicker than that of B.
(i) Current through each resistor
