Solutions to CBSE Sample Paper - Physics Class 12

The figure shows a piece of pure semiconductor S in series with a variable resistor R and a source of constant voltage V. Should the value of R be increased or decreased to keep the reading of the ammeter constant, when semiconductor S is heated? Justify your answer

Question 23 - The figure shows a piece - teachoo.jpg


To keep the reading of ammeter constant value of R should be increased as with the increase in temperature of a semiconductor, its resistance decreases and current tends to increase.
