Q 4- Two uniformly charged solid spheres are such that E1 is electric field at surface of 1st sphere due to itself. E2 is electric field at surface of 2nd sphere due to itself. r1, r2 are radius of 1st and 2nd sphere respectively. If \frac{E_1}{E_2}=\frac{r_1}{r_2} then ratio of potential at the surface of spheres 1st and 2nd due to their self charges is:


1)\frac{r_1}{r_2}\ \ \ \ \ 2)(\frac{r_1}{r_2})^2\ \ \ \ \ 3)(\frac{r_2}{r_1})^2\ \ \ \ \ 4) \frac{r_2}{r_1}

\\y=\overline{A.\overline{A.B}}\\Given\\A=0,\ B=1\\\Rightarrow A.B=0\\\overline(A.B)=1\ and \ A.\overline{A.B}\ \\ \ therefore\ \overline{A.\overline{A.B}}=1

Q 6- Velocity of a wave in a wire is v when tension in it is 2.06 × 104 N. Find value of tension in wire when velocity of wave become v/2.


(1) 5.15 × 103 N (2) 8.24 × 104 N (3) 6 × 104 (4) 5.15 × 104 N





\\v\propto\sqrt{T}\\\\\frac{T_1}{T_2}=(\frac{v_1}{v_2})^2\\\\\frac{T_1}{T_2}=(\frac{v}{v/2})^2=4\\\\\Rightarrow T_2=\frac{T_1}{4}=0.515\times10^4\\T_2=5.15\times10^3


Q 7- n mole of He and 2n mole of O2 is mixed in a container. Then (\frac{c_p}{c_v})_{mix}  will be



1)\frac{19}{13}\ \ \ \ 2)\frac{1}{3}\ \ \ \ 3)\frac{1}{4}\ \ \ \ 4)\frac{40}{27}


For mono atomic gas (He)


c_v=\frac{3}{2}, c_p=\frac{5}{2}


For diatomic gas (O2)


c_v=\frac{5}{2}, c_p=\frac{7}{2}


\\\gamma_{\text {mixure }}=\frac{C_{p_{m i x}}}{C_{v_{m x}}}=\frac{\left(n_{1} C_{p_{1}}+n_{2} C_{p_{2}}\right)}{\left(n_{1} C_{v_{1}}+n_{2} C_{v_{2}}\right)}\\\\=\frac{n\frac{5}{2}R+2n\frac{7}{2}R}{n\frac{3}{2}R+2n\frac{5}{2}R}=\frac{19}{13}


Q-8 A uniform solid sphere of radius R has a cavity of radius 1m cut from it if centre of mass of the system lies at the periphery of the cavity then



\\1)\ (R^2+R+1)(2-R)=1\ \ \ \2) (R^2-R-1)(2-R)=1\\\\3)(R^2-R+1)(2-R)=1\ \ \ \4)(R^2+R-1)(2-R)=1




Shift in centre of mass = 2-R

\\Shift \ in \ COM=\frac{Mass\ removed}{Mass\ of \ original \ sphere-Mass\ removed}\\2-R=\frac{\frac{4}{3}\pi (1)^3\rho}{\frac{4}{3}\pi (R)^3\rho-\frac{4}{3}\pi (1)^3\rho}\\\Rightarrow 2-R=\frac{R-1}{R^3-1}\\\Rightarrow (R^3-1)(2-R)=R-1\\Rightarrow (R-1)(R^2+R+1)(2-R)=(R-1)\\\Rightarrow (R-1)(R^2+R+1)(2-R)=1

Take an elemental strip of length dx at a distance x from one end

So the capacitance of an elemental strip is \mathrm{dc}=\frac{\varepsilon_{0} \mathrm{ad} \mathrm{x}}{\mathrm{d}+\alpha \mathrm{x}}

So integrating this will give total capacitance=C=\int \mathrm{dc}=\int_{0}^{a}\frac{\varepsilon_{0} \mathrm{ad} \mathrm{x}}{\mathrm{d}+\alpha \mathrm{x}}

\begin{array}{l}{\Rightarrow \quad c=\frac{\varepsilon_{0} a}{\alpha}[\ln (d+\alpha x)]_{0}^{a}} \\ {C=\frac{\varepsilon_{0} a}{\alpha} \ln \left(1+\frac{\alpha a}{d}\right) \approx \frac{\varepsilon_{0} a^{2}}{d}\left(1-\frac{\alpha a}{2 d}\right)}\end{array}
