Question 5.

Voltmeter is connected in parallel in the circuit to measure the potential difference between two points.

Question 6.
A copper wire has diameter 0.5 mm and resistivity of 1.6 × 10-8 Ω m. What will be the length of this wire to make its resistance 10 Ω? How much does the resistance change if the diameter is doubled?
Given, Diameter = 0.5 mm = 0.0005 m

So, the resistance is one-fourth if the diameter is doubled.

Question 18.
Explain the following:
(a) Why is the tungsten used almost exclusively for filament of electric lamps?
(b) Why arc the conductors of electric heating devices, such as bread-toasters and electric irons, majle of an alloy rather than a pure metal?
(c) Why is the series arrangement not used for domestic circuits?
(d) How does the resistance of a wire vary with its area of cross-section?
(e) Why are copper and aluminium wires usually employed for electricity transmission?
(a) Tungsten used almost exclusively for filament of electric lamps because its melting point is very high and resistivity of tungsten is low, it has special property of glowing on heating, it does not oxidized.

(b) The conductors of electric heating devices such as bread toasters and electric irons are made of alloy because resistivity of an alloy is higher than metal so alloy produces large amount of heat. They do not get oxidized. Melting point is also high.

(c) As in series, circuit voltage is divided. Components of a series circuit receives only small voltage so the amount of current decreases and the device turn hot and do not work properly. Hence, series arrangement is avoided being used in domestic circuits.

(d) Resistance (R) of a wire is inversely proportional to its area of cross-section (A) i.e., when area of cross section decreases the resistance increases or vice versa.

(e) Copper and aluminium are usually used for electricity transmission because they are good conductors of electricity and also have low resistivity and do not get heated.

Question 1.
What is electric current?
Total charge which pass through a particular area in unit time is called electric current of that particular conductor.

Question 2.
What is potential difference?
Movement of electron need a pressure difference among conductors. Hence, battery or current flow suppliers are added to circuit. This difference in potential is called potential difference.

Question 3.
Define Ohm’s law.
Ohm’s law states that current flowing in a circuit is directly proportional to its potential difference. It is represented by formula,
V α I
or V = RI
or V = IR
Here, R is a constant known as resistance.
