Answer

Past year paper question - Chapter 12 Class 10 Electricity - Teachoo.jpg

 

 

The current flowing through a resistor connected in an electrical circuit and the potential difference developed across its ends are shown in the given ammeter and voltmeter. Find the least count of the voltmeter and ammeter .What is the voltage and the current across the given resistor?

Q 22 - Teachoo - Copy.jpg

 

Answer

Finding least count

The smallest value that can be measured by a measuring instrument is called its least count.

Numerically,

Least count = Value measure in N divisions/ N

Ammeter Voltmeter
Q 22 - Teachoo - left.jpg Q 22 - Teachoo - Right.jpg

We can see that, 10 divisions measure 0.2A current

 

Therefore,
Least count = 0.2/10
                 = 0.02 A
Least count of ammeter is 0.02 A

We can see that, 10 divisions measure 1 V potential difference
 
Therefore,
Least count = 1/10
                  = 0.1 V
Least count of voltmeter is 0.1 V

 

Finding Current through the circuit

The current through the circuit is given by,

Current = Number of division the ammeter needle is pointing x least count

In the given figure, The ammeter needle is pointing on the 15th divison

Hence,

Current = Number of division the ammeter needle is pointing x least count

   = 15 × 0.02

   = 15 × 2 / 100

   = 30 / 100

   = 3/10

   = 0.3 A

The ammeter reading is 0.3 A.

 

Finding potential difference in the circuit

The potential difference in the circuit is given by,

Potential difference = Number of division the voltmeter needle is pointing x least count

 

In the given figure, The voltmeter needle is pointing on the 21st divison

Hence,

Potential difference = Number of division the ammeter needle is pointing x least count

 = 21 × 0.1

 = 21 × 1/10

 = 21/10

 = 2.1 V

The voltmeter reading is 2.1V

 

In a given ammeter, a student sees that needle indicates 17 divisions in ammeter while performing an experiment to verify Ohm’s law. If ammeter has 10 divisions between 0 and 0.5A, then what is the value corresponding to 17 divisions?

 

Answer

The current through the circuit is given by,

Current = Number of division the ammeter needle is pointing × least count

 

The smallest value that can be measured by a measuring instrument is called its least count.

Numerically,

Least count = Value measure in N divisions/ N

 

According to the question,

There are 10 divisions between 0 and 0.5A

Hence, 10 divisions measure 0.5A current

Therefore,

Least count = Value measure in N divisions/ N

Least count = 0.5/10

= 5/ 10 × 10

= 5/ 100

= 0.05 A

 

Least count of ammeter is 0.05 A

 

The current through the circuit is given by,

Current = Number of division the ammeter needle is pointing x least count

 

According to the question, The ammeter needle is pointing on the 17th divison

Hence,

Current = Number of division the ammeter needle is pointing × least count

  = 17 × 0.05

  = 17 × 5 / 100

  = 85 / 100

  = 0.85 A

The ammeter reading is 0.85 A.

His teacher told that the circuit diagram needs correction. Study the circuit diagram and redraw it after making all corrections. Corrections The ammeter should be connected in series. The voltmeter should be connected in parallel. The two ends of the battery should have different signs. Hence, the batteries are not connected properly Corrected figure is Extra Question Draw a circuit diagram of an electric circuit containing a cell, a key, an ammeter, a resistor of 2 ฮฉ in series with a combination of two resistors (4 ฮฉ each) in parallel and a voltmeter across the parallel combination. Will the potential difference across the 2 ฮฉ resistor be the same as that across the parallel combination of 4 ฮฉ resistors? Give reason. The circuit diagram will be Now, the next question is Will the potential difference across the 2 ฮฉ resistor be the same as that across the parallel combination of 4 ฮฉ resistors . We can see that, the parallel combination of two 4ฮฉ resistors give a 2ฮฉ resistor. Hence we can say that, now, two 2ฮฉ resistors are in series. By Ohm's Law, V = IR In a series combination, the current through all the resistors is same. Hence, V = Current ร— R Since Current is same, and R is same in both the cases. The potential difference across the 2ฮฉ resistor & the parallel combination of 4ฮฉ resistors will be same. Extra Question Find out the following in the electric circuit given in Figure 12.9 (a) Effective resistance of two 8 ฮฉ resistors in the combination (b) Current flowing through 4 ฮฉ resistor (c) Potential difference across 4 ฮฉ resistance (d) Power dissipated in 4 ฮฉ resistor (e) Difference in ammeter readings, if any. Finding equivalent of two 8 ฮฉ resistors in parallel We know that in parallel combination equivalent resistance is given by 1/๐‘… = 1/๐‘…_1 + 1/๐‘…_2 1/๐‘… = 1/8 + 1/8 1/๐‘… = 2/8 1/๐‘… = 1/4 R = 4 ฮฉ Equivalent resistance is 8 ฮฉ So, our circuit diagram will be Finding current flowing through 4 ฮฉ resistor Since 4 ฮฉ resistor is in series, Current flowing through 4 ฮฉ resistor = Current flowing in the entire circuit Let the current = I Since two 4 ฮฉ resistors are in series Equivalent resistance is R = R1 + R2 R = 4 + 4 R = 8 ฮฉ By Ohmโ€™s law V = I R I = ๐‘‰/๐‘… I = 8/8 I = 1 A Current flowing = 1 A (c) Potential difference across 4 ฮฉ resistor By Ohmโ€™s law, V = IR V = 1 ร— 4 V = 4 V (d) Potential dissipated by 4 ฮฉ resistor We know that Power dissipated = V I Putting V = IR = (IR) I = I2 R = (1)2 ร— 4 = 4 W Power dissipated is 4 W (e) Difference in ammeter readings, if any. Since the two ammeters are connected in series, the current flowing through them would be equal. Hence, there won't be any difference in the current flowing through them. Hence, both the ammeters would show same reading. Extra Question The figure below shows three cylindrical copper conductors along with their face areas and lengths. Compare the resistance and the resistivity of the three conductors. Justify your answer Resistivity We know that the resistivity of a conductor depends on the nature of material of the conductor. Since all the three conductors are made of copper, their nature of material is same. Hence, their resistivity will be same. Resistance We know that R = ฯ ๐‘™/๐ด where ฯ is the resistivity, l is the length and A is the Area of cross section. Since the material is same, ฯ is same in all the three cases. Case I l = L A = A R1 = ฯ ร— ๐ฟ/๐ด R1 = ฯ ๐ฟ/๐ด Case II l = 3L A = A/3 R2 = ฯ ร— 3๐ฟ/(๐ด/3) R2 = ฯ ร— (3๐ฟ ร— 3)/๐ด R2 = 9 ฯ๐ฟ/๐ด Case III I = L/3 l = L/3 A =3A R3 = ฯ ร— (๐ฟ/3)/3๐ด R2 = ฯ ร— ๐ฟ/(3 ร— 3๐ด) R2 = 1/9 ร— ฯ๐ฟ/๐ด Hence, R1 : R2 : R3 = 1 : 9 : 1/9 = 1 ร— 9 : 9 ร— 9 : 9 ร— 1/9 = 9 : 81 : 1
