the weights will be lifted up.

2. One alpha particle and a deuteron entered perpendicularly in a uniform magnetic field with
same velocity. Which one follow the greater circle?

i path: r = mv/qB
As both the particles have same velocity therefore
iiiiiiIIT
UYTHT

r/rd = m qd/md q

Thus both particles will follow the same

3. Out of Voltmeter and Millivoltmeter, which has the higher resistance?


Ans: We know the resistance connected to galvanometer to convert it into voltmeter is
R = (V / Ig) - G
So if R is higher, range of V will also be higher, so a Voltmeter has the higher resistance.

4. Proton is moving along the axis of a solenoid carrying current of 2 A and 50 number of
turns per unit length. What will be the force acting on the particle.
Ans: As the magnetic field produced by solenoid is always along its axis, so direction of
velocity of proton is along the direction of field, therefore
F = qvB Sin 0 = 0

5. Out of Ammeter and Milliammeter, which has the higher resistance?


Ans: We know the resistance connected to galvanometer to convert it into ammeter is
S =(Ig/( I Ig))xG
So for higher resistance, the range of I should be small, therefore milliammeter has the
higher resistance.

i i
O
A B E F

I/2 D

the effect of each other. So the net magnetic field at O is 0.
7. Can a Moving Coil Galvanometer can be used to detect an A.C. in a circuit .Give reason.

10. A charge particle moving in a magnetic field penetrates a layer of lead and thereby losses
half of its kinetic energy. How does the radius of curvature of its path change?
Ans: r = mv/qB ----------- (i)
Also ------------ (ii)
By equ (i) and equ (ii)

As the radius is proportional to square root of kinetic


energy, so if the kinetic energy is halved the radius become 1/2 times of its
initial value.

11. A Voltmeter, an ammeter and a resistance are connected in series with a battery. There is
some deflection in voltmeter but the deflection of ammeter is zero. Explain why?
Ans: As the resistance of V is very high so the effective resistance of circuit become very
high, so the current flows in circuit is extremely low therefore the deflection is almost
zero, while the V measures the potential difference between the points so it shows the
reading due to battery.
12. A Current I flows along the length of an infinitely long straight thin walled pipe. What
is the magnetic field at any point on the axis of pipe?

11. Ans.(i) The upper part of the mirror is convex.
(ii) The middle part of the mirror is concave.
(iii) The lower part of the mirror is plane.

12. Ans. The ray of light bends away from the normal.

13. Ans.
As = sini/sinr = c/v or v = sinr/sini *c
For a given angle of incidence, v sinr, vA sin15 , vB sin25 , vC sin35
But sin15 < sin25< sin35.
vA < vB < vC .
i.e. the velocity of light is minimum in medium A.

14 Ans.For i = 90, lateral shift is maximum and is equal to the thickness of the slab.
d = t sin( i r )/ cos r
dmax = t sin(90- r)/cos r = t cos r/cos r = t.

15. Ans.The apparent shift caused by a slab of thickness t is given by


d = t( 1 -1/ )
As the refractive index of the galass is maximum for red light, so red coloured letters are
more raised up.

16. Ans. No Apparent depth is maximum for that part of the bottom of the tank which is
observed normally. Apparent depth decreases with increasing obliquity. Due to this unequal
refraction, the flat bottom of the tank appears concave.

17. Ans. For glass-air interface, sin ic = 1/ag


The critical angle ic for glass water interface is given by
Sin ic = 1/ wg
Now wg < ag,
Sin ic > Sin ic or ic > ic

18. Ans. Light entering water is totally reflected from the air bubble. For the observer, this
light appears to come from the buble. So it shines.

19. Ans. As the critical angle for diamond-oil interface is greater than that for the diamond
air interface, so the shining of diamond reduces when it is dipped in a transparent oil.

20. Ans. It behaves like a biconvex lens.

21. Ans. Air bubble has spherical surface and is surrounded by medium ( water) of higher
refractive index. When light passes from water to air it gets diverged. So air bubble behaves
as a concave lens.

22. Ans.When the refractive index of the liquid is same as the lens material, no light will be
reflected by the lens and hence it will not be visible.

23. Ans. No, the image will be formed at the same position.From lens makers formula,
1/f = ( -1) [ 1/R1 1/R2 ] , it is clear that when we interchangeR1 and R2, the magnitude of
f remains the same.

24. Ans. focal lengthf of a convex lens is related to its refractive index as
f 1/( -1)
As wg < ag , so focal length of a convex lens will increase when it is immersed in water.

25. Ans.Focal length, f 1/( -1)


As R < V , so the focal length of a convex lens will increase when red light is used.

26. Ans:For the original lens: R1 = +R and R2 = -R, so we can write


1/f = ( -1) [ 1/R +1/R ] = 2( -1)/R.
When one surface is made plane by grounding, we have R1 = +R and R2 = - .
Therefore, 1/f = ( -1) [ 1/R +1/ ] =( -1)/R
f / f = 2 or f = 2f
Thus the focal length becomes double and power becomes one half.

27. Ans. When the prism is held in water,


w
g = Sin (A + m/2) /SinA/2
As wg < ag , so the angle of minimum deviation decreases in water.

28. Ans. Total internal reflection.


29. Ans. The sunlight will not be scattered in the absence of atmosphere. So the sky will
appear dark.

30. Ans. Clouds have large particles like dust and water droplets which scatter light of all
colours almost equally, hence clouds generally appear white.

31Ans. When the sun or the moon is seen through a thin veil of high clouds, holes are seen.
These are formed due to reflection of light by the icy crystals present in the atmosphere.

32. Ans. Ultra-violet light has wavelength shorter than that of violet light. Bees have some
retinal cones that are sensitive to ultra violet light, so they can see objects in ultra-violet light.
Human eyes do not posses retinal cones sensitive to ultra-violet light, so human beings
cannot see objects in ultra-violet light. In other words, human beings are ultra-violet blind.
33. Ans. In a chickens eye, the retina has a large number of cones but only few rods. The
rods are sensitive to bright light only. That is why a chicken is not able to see in dim light. As
it needs bright light to see, so it wakes up early in the morning with the sunrise and goes to
sleep by sunset.

34. Ans. Magnifying power of a simple microscope ,


m = 1 + D/f
as fV < fR so the magnifying power is greater when the object is seen in violet light.

35. Ans. This is done so that the objective lens forms image within the focal length of the
eyepiece.

36. Ans. (i) We should take f0 =1 cm and fe = 3cm for a microscope.


(ii) We should take f0 = 100 cm and fe = 1 cm for a telescope.

37. Ans. Yes, because the light gathering power of objective will increase and even faint
objects will become visible.

38. Ans. For relaxed eye,


L = f0 + fe (normal adjustment)
For least distance of distinct vision,
L = f0 + ue , ue < fe
Therefore, L < L. so that distance between the two lenses should be decreased.
SHORT ANSWER TYPE QUESTIONS
39. Ans. Here u = - (f+a), v = -(f+b), f = -f
As 1/f = 1/u +1/v
F = uv/ u + v
Or -f = [-(f+a)] x [-(f+b)] / -(f+a) f(a+b)
= f2 + af +bf +ab / -(2f+a+b)
or 2 f2 + af +bf = f2 + af +bf +ab
or f2 = ab
40.Ans. (i) Angle of refraction (/2) in medium 2 is less than the angle of incidence () in
medoum 1 i.e. the ray bends towards the normal in medium 2. so medium 2 is optically
denser than medium 1.
(ii) From Snells law,
= sin i/sin r = sin / sin /2 = 2sin /2 cos /2 /sin /2 = 2 cos /2

Also = c1 / c2

hence 2 cos /2 = c1 / c2 or = 2cos-1(c1 / 2c2) .

41. Ans. The point of convergence shifts away from the glass, as shown in the ray diagram
given below. The screen has to be moved towards right to receive the point of convergence
again.

42. Ans. Real depth = y cm


Apparent depth = y- x cm
Refractive index of oil,
= real depth/ apparent depth = y / y-x

43. Ans. Using Snells Law for refraction from glass to air,
Sin i/sin r = ga = v / c

Where c is the speed of light in air and v is the speed of light in glass, In the consition of
critical incidence, we have i = ic and r = 900

Sin ic/ sin 900 = v / c or Sin ic = v / c

Or ic = sin -1 ( v / c)

44. Ans. Twinkling of stars. The light from stars undergoes refraction continuously before it
reaches earth. So the apparent position of the stars is slightly different than its actual position.
Due to variation in atmosphere conditions, like change in temperature, density etc., and this
apparent position keeps on changing. The amount of light entering our eyes from a particular
star increases and decreases randomly with time. Sometimes, the star appears brighter and
other times, it appears fainter. This gives rise to the twinkling effect of stars.
The planets do not show twinkling effect. As the planets are much closer to the earth, the
greater and the fluctuations caused in the amount of light due to atmospheric refraction are
negligible as compared to the amount of light received from them.

45. Ans. Light from the stars near the horizon reaches the earth obliquely through the
atmosphere. Its path changes due to refraction. Frequent atmospheric disturbances change the
path of light and cause twinkling of stars. Light from the stars overhead reaches the earth
normally. It does not suffer refraction. There is no change in its path. Hence there is no
Twinkling effect.
46. Ans. Magnification produced by any lens,

m = v/u = f / f + u

given m = N N = f / f + u

or f + u = f / N or u = - f f / N

hence magnitude of object distances,

|u| = f f / N

given P = 1/f = + 2.5 D

f = 1/ 2.5 = 0.4 m = 40 cm
Also N = 4
|u| = 40 40/4 = 40 10 = 50 cm or 30 cm.

47. Ans.
(a) for a convex lens, f>>0 and for an object on left, u<0. when the object is placed within the
focus of a convex lens,
0 < |u| < f or 0< 1 / |u| > 1/f
1/v = 1/f+1/u=1/f-1/|u|<0

i.e. v < 0 so a virtual image is formed on left.


Now as u<0 and v<0, so 1/v = 1/f + 1/u

= - 1/ |v| = 1/f 1/|u| or 1/|u| - 1/|v| = 1/f


As f>0
1/|u| - 1/|v| > 0 or 1/|u| > 1/|v| or |u|<|v|
i.e. |v|>|u| |m| = |v/u| > 1

Hence image is enlarged.


(b) For a concave lens f<0 and for an object on left, u<0
1/v = 1/f +1/u = 1/|f| - 1/|u|
= - [1/|f|+1/|u|] < 0 for all u.
i.e. v<0 for all values of u. hence a virtual image is formed on the left.
Also 1/|v| = 1/|f| + 1/|u| 1/|v| > 1/|u|
Or |v|<|u| |m| = |v/u| < 1
i.e. the image is diminished in size.
48. Ans. A hollow prism contains air which does not cause dispersion. The faes AB and AC
of the hollow prism behave like parallel sides of glass plates. The beam is laterally deviated
at each of the two refracting faces. However, the rays of different colours emerge parallel to
each other. So there is no dispersion.
49. Ans. (i) Moon has no atmosphere. There is no scattering of light. Sunlight reaches moon
straight covering shortest distance. Hence sunrise and sunset are abrupt.
(ii) Moon has no atmosphere. So there is nothing to scatter sunlight towards the moon. No
skylight reaches moon surface. Sky appears black in the day time as it does at night.
(iii) No water vapours are present at moon surface. No clouds are formed. There are no rains
on the moon. So rainbow is never observed.
NUMERICAL PROBLEMS
50. Ans. The total apparent shift in the position of the image due to all the three media is
given by
d = t1[1-1/(1)+ t2[1-1/(2)+ t3[1-1/(3)
Given t1 = 4.0 cm, t2=6.0 cm , t3 =8.0 cm
1 = 1.5 , 2=1.4 , 3 =1.3 cm
d= 4.0(1-1/1.5)+6.0(1-1/1.4)+8.0(1-1/1.3)
= 1.33 + 1.71 + 1.85 = 4.89 cm

51. Ans. Clearly , the fish can see the outside view of the cone with semi vertical angle,

But = 1 / sin ic
Or 1/3 = 1 / sin ic
Or sin ic = = 0.75
/2 = ic = sin-1 (0.75) = 48.60

52. Ans. (i) As the lens forms a real iamge, it must be a convex lens.
(ii) From the graph, when u=20 cm , we have v = 20 cm.
For the convex lens forming a real iamge, u is negative and v and f are positive.
U = -20 cm v = +20cm
Using this lens formula,
1/f = 1/v 1/u = 1/20 1/-20 = 1/10 or f = + 10 cm
53. Ans. A=600 , m=300

WAVE OPTICS
54. Ans. Two light sources will be coherent if
(i) The frequency of the two light sources is same and,
(ii) The phase difference between them remains constant.
55. Two independent light sources cannot act as coherent sources. Why?
Ans. Two independent sources of light cannot be coherent. This is because light is emitted by
individual atoms, when they return to ground state. Even the smallest source of light contains
billions of atoms which obviously cannot emit light waves in the same phase.
56. Ans. Fringe width , = D/d
i.e. 1/d , when d 0,
fringe width is very large. Even a single fringe may occupy the entire screen. The
interference pattern cannot be observed.
57. Ans. The given path difference satisfies the condition for the minimum of intensity for
yellow light, Hence if yellow light is used, a dark fringe will be formed at the given point. If
white light is used, all components of white light except the yellow one would be present at
this point.
58. Ans. The positions of bright and dark fringes will change rapidly. Such rapid changes
cannot be detected by our eyes. A uniform illumination is seen on the screen i.e. interference
pattern disappears.
59. Ans. For diffraction to take place the wave length should be of the order of the size of the
obstacle. The radio waves (particularly short radio waves) have wave length of the order of
the size of the building and other obstacles coming in their way and hence they easily get
diffracted. Since wavelength of the light waves is very small. They are not diffracted by the
buildings.
60. Ans. Muslin cloth is mde of very fine threads and as such fine slits are formed. White
light passing through these silts gets diffracted giving rise to colored spectrum. The central
maximum is white while the secondary maxima are coloured. This is because the positions of
secondary maxima (except central maximum) depend on the wavelength of light.
In a coarse cloth, the slits formed between the threads are wider and the diffraction is not so
pronounced. Hence no such spectrum is seen.
SHORT ANSWER QUESTIONS
61. Ans. A wavefront is a surface obtained by joining all points vibrating in the same phase.
A ray is a line drawn perpendicular to the wavefront in the direction of propagation of light
wave.
The wavefronts of light emerging from a point source are spherical, as shown in figure. When
a point source is placed at the focus of a convex lens, the emerging light has the plane
wavefronts, as shown in figure.
62. Ans. As shown in figure the bright fringes B1 and b2 on either side of O coincide with S1
and S2 respectively.
Clearly ,
= d/2
As = D/d d/2 = D/d or = d2/2D
63Ans. For intensity distribution of light in diffraction at a signal slit, see figure
Width of central maximum is given by
0 = 2D/d
(i) When wavelength of light used is increased, the width of central maximum increases.
(ii) When width of the slit is increased, the width of central maximum decreases.
Wavelength of light in water decreases, so width of central maximum also decreases.
64. Ans. When the monochromatic source is replaced by a source of white light, the
diffraction pattern shows following changes:
(i) In each diffraction order, the diffracted image of the slit gets dispersed into component
colours of white light. As fringe width wavelength, so the red fringe with higher
wavelength is wider than violet fringe with smaller wavelength,
(ii) In higher order spectra, the dispersion is more and it causes overlapping of different
colours.
65. Ans. R.P.of a compound microscope
= 2 sin/ = 2 sin x v /c
(i)When the frequency v of the incident light increases, the resolving power increases (R.P.
v).
(ii) Resolving power does not change with change in focal length of objective lens.
(iii) When the aperture of the objective lens increases, the semi-vertical angle increases and
hence the resolving power of the microscope increases.
66. Ans. According to the Brewster law, when a ray of light is incident on a transparent
refracting medium at olarising angle,
= tan ip
but ip + rp = 900 or ip = 900 - rp
= tan(900 - rp ) = Cot rp = 1/ tan rp

As ic is the critical angle for the transparent medium, so


= 1/sin ic
on comparing (i) and (ii) we get
tan rp = sin ic or rp =tan-1(sin ic)

NUMERICAL QUESTIONS

67. Ans. The resultant intensity at a point where phase difference is is


I R = I1 +I2+2I1I2 Cos
As I1 =I and I2 = 4I therefore
I R = I +4I+21.4I Cos = 5I +4I cos
(i) when =0 , I R = 5I +4I cos 0 = 9 I
(ii) when =/2 , I R = 5I +4I cos /2 = 5 I
(iii) when = , I R = 5I +4I cos = I

68. Ans. The fringe width in the two cases will be = D/d
And = D/d
- = (D-D)/d
or wavelength = ( - )d / (D-D)
But D-D = 5 x 10-2 m
And - = 3 x 10-5 m , d= 10-3m

= 3 x 10-5 x 10-3 / 5 x 10-2 = 6 x 10-7 m = 6000A

69. Ans. Let I be the intensity of beam I incident on first glass plate. Each plate reflects 25%
of light incident on it and transmits 75%.
Therefore,
I1 =I and I2 = 25/100I = I/4
I3 =75/100 I = 3/4I
I4 = 25/100 I3 = x I = 3/16 I
I5= 7/100 I4= x 3/16 I = 9/64 I
Amplitude ratio of beams 2 and 5 is
R = I2/I5 = I/4 x 64/91 = 4/3
Imin/ Imax = [r-1/r+1]2 = [4/3-1 / 4/3+1]2 = 1/49 = 1:49

across the forbidden energy gap from valence band to the conduction band, where they are
free to conduct electricity. Thereby increasing the conductivity of a semi conductor.

i.e. e= Ve /E
Mobility of a hole is defined as the drift velocity of hole per unit electric field,
i.e. h= Vh /E
The electrical conductivity() is the reciprocal of resistivity (p), therefore
Conductivity, =1/ = e(ne e + nh h ) Where ne & nh are free electron density & hole
density respectively.
13. Diagram
14. The drift velocity of a charge carrier is proportional to electric E.
Therefore V = eET/m ie. V E
But V cannot be increased indefinitely by increasing E . At high speed relaxation time (T)
begins to decrease due to increase in collision frequency. S: so drift velocity saturates at
thermal velocity (lOms-1). An electric field of 106 V/m causes saturation of drift velocity.
Hence semi- conduction obey ohms law for low electrical field and above this field ( E < 106
V/m ) current becomes independent of potential.

15. The factors upon which transconductance of a transistor depend are as follows--
i) Geometry of the transistor
ii) Doping levels.
iii) Biasing of the transistors.
16. For faster action NPN Transistor is used .In an NPN transistor, current conduction is
mainly by free electron ,whereas in PNP type transistor .it is mainly holes Since electron are
more mobile than holes we prefer NPN for faster action as well as high conduction current.

HINTS FOR COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS
1) In a radar, a beam signal is needed in particular direction which is possible if wavelength
of signal waves is very small. Since the wavelength of microwave is a few millimeter, hence
they are used in radar.
2 The television signals have frequencies in 100-200 MHz range. As ionosphere cannot
reflect radio waves of frequency greater than 40 M back to earth, the sky waves cannot be
used in the transmission of TV signals.
3) A diode detector should have the following characteristic for proper detection a) high
rectification efficiency.
b) negligible loading effect on previous stage
c) low distortion.
4) Velocity factor (VF) of a cable is the ratio of reduction speed of light in the dielectric of
the cable.
Velocity of light in vacuum is 3 x108 m/sec. It reduces when light passes through a medium.
Velocity of light in a medium is given by
v=c / k & where, c-velocity of light in vacuum and
k- is the dielectric constant of the medium
Vf. =v/c=l/k
For a line velocity factor is generally of the order of 0.6 to 0.9.
5) Delta modulation involves simple pulse coding and decoding methods. A simple delta
modulation uses just one bit per sample i.e. a non-zero sample or one per sample. Thus, this
method is convenient to use.

6) Two wire transmission line and coaxial cable are employed for AF and UHF region.
For optical fiber is employed for optical frequency.
7). Mixing two frequencies across nonlinear impedance.
8). When light strikeds the atoms of the Laser medium, it must stimulate emission rather than
be absorbed. This means that more atoms must be in an excited state than in the ground state.
This is an unnatural condition and is known as population inversion.

mixed.
13) Pulse modulation is a system in which continuous wave forms are sampled at regular
intervals. Information regarding the signal is transmitted only at the sampling times together
with any synchronizing pulses that maybe required. Pulse modulation is the process of
transmitting signals in the form of pulses ( dis continuous signals ) by using special
techniques.
14) The term channel is commonly used to special the frequency range allotted to a particular
transmission from a broadcast station or a transmitter eg a telephone channel is also used for
a link in a transmitter and receiver.
15) Atmospheric pressure decreases with in crease in altitude. The high energy particles (ie &
rays and cosmic rays) coming from outer space and entering our earths atmosphere cause
ionization of the atoms of the gases present there . The ionizing power of these radiation
decreases rapidly as they approach the earth. due to decrease in number of collision with the
gas atoms . It is due to this reason that the electrical conductivity of earths atmosphere
increases with altitude

16) Refractive index p of core of core of optical fibre is slightly higher than glass cladding .
Light propagates through and along the fibre by the series of bounces caused by internal
reflection at the interface of the core and cladding. For total internal reflection the light
should enter the fibre at an angle in accordance with core of acceptance angle c
NA = sinc = (12 - 22 )
Numerical aperature depends upon diameter of the core It decreases as the diameter of core
decreases vice versa

23. V = V1+V2
Q =C1V = 6 X 10-6 X 2 = 12C
As C2 is in series same amount of charge will also flow through it.
Now V2= Q/ C2 = (12 X 10-6)/ (12 X 10-6) = 1 Volt
Total battery Voltage,V = 2 + 1 = 3 Volt
24.Capacitance of parallel plate capacitor with air between the plates is C0 = 0A/d
When the separation between the plates reduced to half,

11. Ans.(i) The upper part of the mirror is convex.
(ii) The middle part of the mirror is concave.
(iii) The lower part of the mirror is plane.

12. Ans. The ray of light bends away from the normal.

13. Ans.
As = sini/sinr = c/v or v = sinr/sini *c
For a given angle of incidence, v sinr, vA sin15 , vB sin25 , vC sin35
But sin15 < sin25< sin35.
vA < vB < vC .
i.e. the velocity of light is minimum in medium A.

14 Ans.For i = 90, lateral shift is maximum and is equal to the thickness of the slab.
d = t sin( i r )/ cos r
dmax = t sin(90- r)/cos r = t cos r/cos r = t.

15. Ans.The apparent shift caused by a slab of thickness t is given by


d = t( 1 -1/ )
As the refractive index of the galass is maximum for red light, so red coloured letters are
more raised up.

16. Ans. No Apparent depth is maximum for that part of the bottom of the tank which is
observed normally. Apparent depth decreases with increasing obliquity. Due to this unequal
refraction, the flat bottom of the tank appears concave.

17. Ans. For glass-air interface, sin ic = 1/ag


The critical angle ic for glass water interface is given by
Sin ic = 1/ wg
Now wg < ag,
Sin ic > Sin ic or ic > ic

18. Ans. Light entering water is totally reflected from the air bubble. For the observer, this
light appears to come from the buble. So it shines.

19. Ans. As the critical angle for diamond-oil interface is greater than that for the diamond
air interface, so the shining of diamond reduces when it is dipped in a transparent oil.

20. Ans. It behaves like a biconvex lens.


21. Ans. Air bubble has spherical surface and is surrounded by medium ( water) of higher
refractive index. When light passes from water to air it gets diverged. So air bubble behaves
as a concave lens.

22. Ans.When the refractive index of the liquid is same as the lens material, no light will be
reflected by the lens and hence it will not be visible.

23. Ans. No, the image will be formed at the same position.From lens makers formula,
1/f = ( -1) [ 1/R1 1/R2 ] , it is clear that when we interchangeR1 and R2, the magnitude of
f remains the same.

24. Ans. focal lengthf of a convex lens is related to its refractive index as
f 1/( -1)
As wg < ag , so focal length of a convex lens will increase when it is immersed in water.

25. Ans.Focal length, f 1/( -1)


As R < V , so the focal length of a convex lens will increase when red light is used.

26. Ans:For the original lens: R1 = +R and R2 = -R, so we can write


1/f = ( -1) [ 1/R +1/R ] = 2( -1)/R.
When one surface is made plane by grounding, we have R1 = +R and R2 = - .
Therefore, 1/f = ( -1) [ 1/R +1/ ] =( -1)/R
f / f = 2 or f = 2f
Thus the focal length becomes double and power becomes one half.

27. Ans. When the prism is held in water,


w
g = Sin (A + m/2) /SinA/2
As wg < ag , so the angle of minimum deviation decreases in water.

28. Ans. Total internal reflection.


29. Ans. The sunlight will not be scattered in the absence of atmosphere. So the sky will
appear dark.
30. Ans. Clouds have large particles like dust and water droplets which scatter light of all
colours almost equally, hence clouds generally appear white.

31Ans. When the sun or the moon is seen through a thin veil of high clouds, holes are seen.
These are formed due to reflection of light by the icy crystals present in the atmosphere.

32. Ans. Ultra-violet light has wavelength shorter than that of violet light. Bees have some
retinal cones that are sensitive to ultra violet light, so they can see objects in ultra-violet light.
Human eyes do not posses retinal cones sensitive to ultra-violet light, so human beings
cannot see objects in ultra-violet light. In other words, human beings are ultra-violet blind.

33. Ans. In a chickens eye, the retina has a large number of cones but only few rods. The
rods are sensitive to bright light only. That is why a chicken is not able to see in dim light. As
it needs bright light to see, so it wakes up early in the morning with the sunrise and goes to
sleep by sunset.

34. Ans. Magnifying power of a simple microscope ,


m = 1 + D/f
as fV < fR so the magnifying power is greater when the object is seen in violet light.

35. Ans. This is done so that the objective lens forms image within the focal length of the
eyepiece.

36. Ans. (i) We should take f0 =1 cm and fe = 3cm for a microscope.


(ii) We should take f0 = 100 cm and fe = 1 cm for a telescope.

37. Ans. Yes, because the light gathering power of objective will increase and even faint
objects will become visible.

38. Ans. For relaxed eye,


L = f0 + fe (normal adjustment)
For least distance of distinct vision,
L = f0 + ue , ue < fe
Therefore, L < L. so that distance between the two lenses should be decreased.
SHORT ANSWER TYPE QUESTIONS
39. Ans. Here u = - (f+a), v = -(f+b), f = -f
As 1/f = 1/u +1/v
F = uv/ u + v
Or -f = [-(f+a)] x [-(f+b)] / -(f+a) f(a+b)
= f2 + af +bf +ab / -(2f+a+b)
or 2 f2 + af +bf = f2 + af +bf +ab
or f2 = ab
40.Ans. (i) Angle of refraction (/2) in medium 2 is less than the angle of incidence () in
medoum 1 i.e. the ray bends towards the normal in medium 2. so medium 2 is optically
denser than medium 1.
(ii) From Snells law,
= sin i/sin r = sin / sin /2 = 2sin /2 cos /2 /sin /2 = 2 cos /2

Also = c1 / c2

hence 2 cos /2 = c1 / c2 or = 2cos-1(c1 / 2c2) .

41. Ans. The point of convergence shifts away from the glass, as shown in the ray diagram
given below. The screen has to be moved towards right to receive the point of convergence
again.

42. Ans. Real depth = y cm


Apparent depth = y- x cm
Refractive index of oil,
= real depth/ apparent depth = y / y-x

43. Ans. Using Snells Law for refraction from glass to air,
Sin i/sin r = ga = v / c

Where c is the speed of light in air and v is the speed of light in glass, In the consition of
critical incidence, we have i = ic and r = 900

Sin ic/ sin 900 = v / c or Sin ic = v / c

Or ic = sin -1 ( v / c)
44. Ans. Twinkling of stars. The light from stars undergoes refraction continuously before it
reaches earth. So the apparent position of the stars is slightly different than its actual position.
Due to variation in atmosphere conditions, like change in temperature, density etc., and this
apparent position keeps on changing. The amount of light entering our eyes from a particular
star increases and decreases randomly with time. Sometimes, the star appears brighter and
other times, it appears fainter. This gives rise to the twinkling effect of stars.
The planets do not show twinkling effect. As the planets are much closer to the earth, the
greater and the fluctuations caused in the amount of light due to atmospheric refraction are
negligible as compared to the amount of light received from them.

45. Ans. Light from the stars near the horizon reaches the earth obliquely through the
atmosphere. Its path changes due to refraction. Frequent atmospheric disturbances change the
path of light and cause twinkling of stars. Light from the stars overhead reaches the earth
normally. It does not suffer refraction. There is no change in its path. Hence there is no
Twinkling effect.

46. Ans. Magnification produced by any lens,

m = v/u = f / f + u

given m = N N = f / f + u

or f + u = f / N or u = - f f / N

hence magnitude of object distances,

|u| = f f / N

given P = 1/f = + 2.5 D

f = 1/ 2.5 = 0.4 m = 40 cm
Also N = 4
|u| = 40 40/4 = 40 10 = 50 cm or 30 cm.

47. Ans.
(a) for a convex lens, f>>0 and for an object on left, u<0. when the object is placed within the
focus of a convex lens,
0 < |u| < f or 0< 1 / |u| > 1/f
1/v = 1/f+1/u=1/f-1/|u|<0

i.e. v < 0 so a virtual image is formed on left.


Now as u<0 and v<0, so 1/v = 1/f + 1/u

= - 1/ |v| = 1/f 1/|u| or 1/|u| - 1/|v| = 1/f


As f>0
1/|u| - 1/|v| > 0 or 1/|u| > 1/|v| or |u|<|v|
i.e. |v|>|u| |m| = |v/u| > 1
Hence image is enlarged.
(b) For a concave lens f<0 and for an object on left, u<0
1/v = 1/f +1/u = 1/|f| - 1/|u|
= - [1/|f|+1/|u|] < 0 for all u.
i.e. v<0 for all values of u. hence a virtual image is formed on the left.
Also 1/|v| = 1/|f| + 1/|u| 1/|v| > 1/|u|
Or |v|<|u| |m| = |v/u| < 1
i.e. the image is diminished in size.
48. Ans. A hollow prism contains air which does not cause dispersion. The faes AB and AC
of the hollow prism behave like parallel sides of glass plates. The beam is laterally deviated
at each of the two refracting faces. However, the rays of different colours emerge parallel to
each other. So there is no dispersion.
49. Ans. (i) Moon has no atmosphere. There is no scattering of light. Sunlight reaches moon
straight covering shortest distance. Hence sunrise and sunset are abrupt.
(ii) Moon has no atmosphere. So there is nothing to scatter sunlight towards the moon. No
skylight reaches moon surface. Sky appears black in the day time as it does at night.
(iii) No water vapours are present at moon surface. No clouds are formed. There are no rains
on the moon. So rainbow is never observed.
NUMERICAL PROBLEMS
50. Ans. The total apparent shift in the position of the image due to all the three media is

d = t1[1-1/(1)+ t2[1-1/(2)+ t3[1-1/(3)
Given t1 = 4.0 cm, t2=6.0 cm , t3 =8.0 cm
1 = 1.5 , 2=1.4 , 3 =1.3 cm
d= 4.0(1-1/1.5)+6.0(1-1/1.4)+8.0(1-1/1.3)
= 1.33 + 1.71 + 1.85 = 4.89 cm

51. Ans. Clearly , the fish can see the outside view of the cone with semi vertical angle,

But = 1 / sin ic
Or 1/3 = 1 / sin ic
Or sin ic = = 0.75
/2 = ic = sin-1 (0.75) = 48.60

52. Ans. (i) As the lens forms a real iamge, it must be a convex lens.
(ii) From the graph, when u=20 cm , we have v = 20 cm.
For the convex lens forming a real iamge, u is negative and v and f are positive.
U = -20 cm v = +20cm
Using this lens formula,
1/f = 1/v 1/u = 1/20 1/-20 = 1/10 or f = + 10 cm
53. Ans. A=600 , m=300

WAVE OPTICS
54. Ans. Two light sources will be coherent if
(i) The frequency of the two light sources is same and,
(ii) The phase difference between them remains constant.
55. Two independent light sources cannot act as coherent sources. Why?
Ans. Two independent sources of light cannot be coherent. This is because light is emitted by
individual atoms, when they return to ground state. Even the smallest source of light contains
billions of atoms which obviously cannot emit light waves in the same phase.
56. Ans. Fringe width , = D/d
i.e. 1/d , when d 0,
fringe width is very large. Even a single fringe may occupy the entire screen. The
interference pattern cannot be observed.
57. Ans. The given path difference satisfies the condition for the minimum of intensity for
yellow light, Hence if yellow light is used, a dark fringe will be formed at the given point. If
white light is used, all components of white light except the yellow one would be present at
this point.
58. Ans. The positions of bright and dark fringes will change rapidly. Such rapid changes
cannot be detected by our eyes. A uniform illumination is seen on the screen i.e. interference
pattern disappears.
59. Ans. For diffraction to take place the wave length should be of the order of the size of the
obstacle. The radio waves (particularly short radio waves) have wave length of the order of
the size of the building and other obstacles coming in their way and hence they easily get
diffracted. Since wavelength of the light waves is very small. They are not diffracted by the
buildings.
60. Ans. Muslin cloth is mde of very fine threads and as such fine slits are formed. White
light passing through these silts gets diffracted giving rise to colored spectrum. The central
maximum is white while the secondary maxima are coloured. This is because the positions of
secondary maxima (except central maximum) depend on the wavelength of light.
In a coarse cloth, the slits formed between the threads are wider and the diffraction is not so
pronounced. Hence no such spectrum is seen.
SHORT ANSWER QUESTIONS
61. Ans. A wavefront is a surface obtained by joining all points vibrating in the same phase.
A ray is a line drawn perpendicular to the wavefront in the direction of propagation of light
wave.
The wavefronts of light emerging from a point source are spherical, as shown in figure. When
a point source is placed at the focus of a convex lens, the emerging light has the plane
wavefronts, as shown in figure.
62. Ans. As shown in figure the bright fringes B1 and b2 on either side of O coincide with S1
and S2 respectively.
Clearly ,

As = D/d d/2 = D/d or = d2/2D
63Ans. For intensity distribution of light in diffraction at a signal slit, see figure
Width of central maximum is given by
0 = 2D/d
(i) When wavelength of light used is increased, the width of central maximum increases.
(ii) When width of the slit is increased, the width of central maximum decreases.
Wavelength of light in water decreases, so width of central maximum also decreases.
64. Ans. When the monochromatic source is replaced by a source of white light, the
diffraction pattern shows following changes:
(i) In each diffraction order, the diffracted image of the slit gets dispersed into component
colours of white light. As fringe width wavelength, so the red fringe with higher
wavelength is wider than violet fringe with smaller wavelength,
(ii) In higher order spectra, the dispersion is more and it causes overlapping of different
colours.
65. Ans. R.P.of a compound microscope
= 2 sin/ = 2 sin x v /c
(i)When the frequency v of the incident light increases, the resolving power increases (R.P.
v).
(ii) Resolving power does not change with change in focal length of objective lens.
(iii) When the aperture of the objective lens increases, the semi-vertical angle increases and
hence the resolving power of the microscope increases.
66. Ans. According to the Brewster law, when a ray of light is incident on a transparent
refracting medium at olarising angle,
= tan ip
but ip + rp = 900 or ip = 900 - rp
= tan(900 - rp ) = Cot rp = 1/ tan rp

As ic is the critical angle for the transparent medium, so


= 1/sin ic
on comparing (i) and (ii) we get
tan rp = sin ic or rp =tan-1(sin ic)

NUMERICAL QUESTIONS

67. Ans. The resultant intensity at a point where phase difference is is


I R = I1 +I2+2I1I2 Cos
As I1 =I and I2 = 4I therefore
I R = I +4I+21.4I Cos = 5I +4I cos
(i) when =0 , I R = 5I +4I cos 0 = 9 I
(ii) when =/2 , I R = 5I +4I cos /2 = 5 I
(iii) when = , I R = 5I +4I cos = I

68. Ans. The fringe width in the two cases will be = D/d
And = D/d
- = (D-D)/d
or wavelength = ( - )d / (D-D)
But D-D = 5 x 10-2 m
And - = 3 x 10-5 m , d= 10-3m

= 3 x 10-5 x 10-3 / 5 x 10-2 = 6 x 10-7 m = 6000A

69. Ans. Let I be the intensity of beam I incident on first glass plate. Each plate reflects 25%
of light incident on it and transmits 75%.
Therefore,
I1 =I and I2 = 25/100I = I/4
I3 =75/100 I = 3/4I
I4 = 25/100 I3 = x I = 3/16 I
I5= 7/100 I4= x 3/16 I = 9/64 I
Amplitude ratio of beams 2 and 5 is
R = I2/I5 = I/4 x 64/91 = 4/3
Imin/ Imax = [r-1/r+1]2 = [4/3-1 / 4/3+1]2 = 1/49 = 1:49

Hence, metal x will emit electrons.

15. For a photon E1=hc/


For an electron =h/mv or m=h/v

1) The entire positive charge and the mass were concentrated at one place inside the atom,
called the nucleus.
2) A larger number of alpha particle went through undeflected.
3) R=R0A1/3 R1/R2=A11/3/A21/3=1 1/3/27 1/3=1/3

4) R= R0A1/3 R1/R2=A11/3/A21/3=(1/8)1/3 =1/2


R1: R2=1:2
5) -particles have more ionizing power than -particles.
6) N/N0=(1/2)n
t=2T =2*30 =60 days
7) They are neutral in nature and get absorbed by nucleus, thus distributing the neutron
proton ratio.
8) The ratio of neutrons to proton ratio increases, after the emission of a particle.
9) Owing to greater mass and charge, it is able to knock out/pull out electrons which
colliding with atoms and molecules in its path.
10) T = 20 minutes t = 60 minutes
N/No = (1/2)n = (1/2)60/20 = (1/2) 3 =1/8
After one hour, 1/8th of the original mass would remain.
11) The nucleus looses energy, but remains same isotope it was.
12) No a nucleus either emits a particle or a particle and if left in the exited state,
it
may emit ray also.
13) 1:1 (independent of A).
14) At t = T N = No / 2 Using N = No e- t
No / 2 = No e- t
Solving we get, T1/2 = ln2/ = 0.693/
15) Size of nucleus can approximately be estimated using the concept of distance of
closest
approach. The rebounding particle is selected and its information is substituted in the
expression Ro = 1/4Eo x 2Ze2 / E for particle where E is its energy.
B. Using N =No (1/2)t//2 N =1/16No

Z = 35
18) a) Yes. Since X & Y are having same atomic number.
b) Y4 3 is likely to be more stable because for its neutron to proton ratio is smaller.
19) Disintegration constant =0.693/T1/2

HINTS FOR ELECTRONIC DEVICES
1. Conductor - no energy gap
Semi Conductor - It is of the order of 1 ev.
Insulator - 6 ev (or) more than 6 ev.
2. When a semi conductor is heated more & more electrons get enough energy to jump
across the forbidden energy gap from valence band to the conduction band, where they are
free to conduct electricity. Thereby increasing the conductivity of a semi conductor.
3. In an intrinsic semi conductor the number of free electrons and holes is same.

10.If ne/nh =1 . Hence A is intrinsic semi conductor.
If ne/nh <1 , ne<nh hence B is P-type.
11. For half wave rectification 50 Hz.
For Full wave rectification 100Hz.
12. Mobility of an electron is defined as the drift velocity of electron per unit electric field,
i.e. e= Ve /E
Mobility of a hole is defined as the drift velocity of hole per unit electric field,
i.e. h= Vh /E
The electrical conductivity() is the reciprocal of resistivity (p), therefore
Conductivity, =1/ = e(ne e + nh h ) Where ne & nh are free electron density & hole
density respectively.
13. Diagram

14. The drift velocity of a charge carrier is proportional to electric E.


Therefore V = eET/m ie. V E
But V cannot be increased indefinitely by increasing E . At high speed relaxation time (T)
begins to decrease due to increase in collision frequency. S: so drift velocity saturates at
thermal velocity (lOms-1). An electric field of 106 V/m causes saturation of drift velocity.
Hence semi- conduction obey ohms law for low electrical field and above this field ( E < 106
V/m ) current becomes independent of potential.

15. The factors upon which transconductance of a transistor depend are as follows--
i) Geometry of the transistor
ii) Doping levels.
iii) Biasing of the transistors.
16. For faster action NPN Transistor is used .In an NPN transistor, current conduction is
mainly by free electron ,whereas in PNP type transistor .it is mainly holes Since electron are
more mobile than holes we prefer NPN for faster action as well as high conduction current.
17. graphs:

18. Because the energy gap for Ge ( Eg = 0.7 ev) is smaller than the energy gap for Si
(Eg = 1.1ev ) . Moreover, the germanium diode is much more open to the danger of
high temperature affect than silicon at high voltage.
19. The output of the AND gate is Y = A.B consequently the input of the OR gate are A and
A.B . Then the final Y = A + A.B

HINTS FOR COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS
1) In a radar, a beam signal is needed in particular direction which is possible if wavelength
of signal waves is very small. Since the wavelength of microwave is a few millimeter, hence
they are used in radar.
2 The television signals have frequencies in 100-200 MHz range. As ionosphere cannot
reflect radio waves of frequency greater than 40 M back to earth, the sky waves cannot be
used in the transmission of TV signals.
3) A diode detector should have the following characteristic for proper detection a) high
rectification efficiency.
b) negligible loading effect on previous stage
c) low distortion.
4) Velocity factor (VF) of a cable is the ratio of reduction speed of light in the dielectric of
the cable.
Velocity of light in vacuum is 3 x108 m/sec. It reduces when light passes through a medium.
Velocity of light in a medium is given by
v=c / k & where, c-velocity of light in vacuum and
k- is the dielectric constant of the medium
Vf. =v/c=l/k
For a line velocity factor is generally of the order of 0.6 to 0.9.
5) Delta modulation involves simple pulse coding and decoding methods. A simple delta
modulation uses just one bit per sample i.e. a non-zero sample or one per sample. Thus, this
method is convenient to use.

6) Two wire transmission line and coaxial cable are employed for AF and UHF region.
For optical fiber is employed for optical frequency.
7). Mixing two frequencies across nonlinear impedance.
8). When light strikeds the atoms of the Laser medium, it must stimulate emission rather than
be absorbed. This means that more atoms must be in an excited state than in the ground state.
This is an unnatural condition and is known as population inversion.
9). Solid Lasers, Semi conductor Laser, Liquid laser, Gas Laser.

impossible
to set up it.
2 The energy radiated from the antenna in audio frequency range is Practically zero
3 The audio signals transmitted from the different broadcasting stations will get inseparably
mixed.
13) Pulse modulation is a system in which continuous wave forms are sampled at regular
intervals. Information regarding the signal is transmitted only at the sampling times together
with any synchronizing pulses that maybe required. Pulse modulation is the process of
transmitting signals in the form of pulses ( dis continuous signals ) by using special
techniques.
14) The term channel is commonly used to special the frequency range allotted to a particular
transmission from a broadcast station or a transmitter eg a telephone channel is also used for
a link in a transmitter and receiver.
15) Atmospheric pressure decreases with in crease in altitude. The high energy particles (ie &
rays and cosmic rays) coming from outer space and entering our earths atmosphere cause
ionization of the atoms of the gases present there . The ionizing power of these radiation
decreases rapidly as they approach the earth. due to decrease in number of collision with the
gas atoms . It is due to this reason that the electrical conductivity of earths atmosphere
increases with altitude

the signal
16) Refractive index p of core of core of optical fibre is slightly higher than glass cladding .
Light propagates through and along the fibre by the series of bounces caused by internal
reflection at the interface of the core and cladding. For total internal reflection the light
should enter the fibre at an angle in accordance with core of acceptance angle c
NA = sinc = (12 - 22 )
Numerical aperature depends upon diameter of the core It decreases as the diameter of core
decreases vice versa
17) i) Pulse Amplitude Modulation : Amplitude of the pulse varies in accordance with the
modulating signal.

(ii) Pulse Position Modulation. : Pulse position (ie) time of rise or fall of the pulse )
changes with the modulating signal.

Q: 42.Alka and her sister were watching a movie in which the phenomena of aurora boriolis was shown.
Alka could not believe her eyes that such a colorful display like the one during commonwealth games
could be created by nature. She went to the library, but could not find the right book. So she consulted
her teacher who guided her. Hence, Alka understood that during a solar flare, a large number of
electrons and protons are ejected from the sun. Some of these get trapped in the earths magnetic field
and move in a helical path along the field lines. As the density of the field lines increases near the poles,
these particles collide with atoms and molecules of the atmosphere emitting green and pink light. Alka
shared this knowledge with her class when they studied the chapter of moving charges in magnetic field.
