Ans.25) Explain the following.
a. Why is tungsten used almost exclusively for filament of electric lamps?
Answer: The melting point of tungsten is very high, i.e. 3380C, which enables it not to melt at high
temperature and to retain most of the heat. The heating of tungsten makes it glow. This is the cause that
tungsten is used almost exclusively for filament of electric lamps.
b. Why are the conductors of electric heating devices, such as bread-toasters and electric irons, made of an alloy
rather than a pure metal?
Answer: To produce more heat, the high melting point of conductors is necessary. The alloys of metal have
higher melting points than pure metals. Thus, to retain more heat alloy is used rather than pure metal in
electrical heating devices, such as bread-toaster, electric iron, etc.
c. Why is the series arrangement not used for domestic circuits?
Answer: There is loss of voltage in the series arrangement in the circuits because of add on effect of
resistances. So, series arrangement is not used for domestic circuits.
d. How does the resistance of a wire vary with its area of cross-section?
Answer: Resistance of a wire is indirectly proportional to the area of cross section. Resistance increases with
decrease in area of cross section and vice versa.
e. Why are copper and aluminium wires, usually employed for electricity transmission?
Answer: The resistivity of copper and aluminium wires are lower than that of iron but more than that of
silver. These wires are cheaper than silver, thats why copper and aluminium wires usually employed for
electricity transmission.
Ans.26) Since electric power is the rate of consumption of electric energy in any electrical appliance. Hence, rate at
which energy is delivered by a current is the power of electric appliance.

Ans.27) The resistance of heating element is very high compared to the cord of an electric heater. Since, heat
produced is directly proportional to the resistance, thus element of electric heater glows because of production of
more heat and cord does not.
Ans.28) Advantages of connecting electrical appliances in parallel instead of connecting in series:
a. Voltage remains same in all the appliances.
b. Lower total effective resistance
Ans.29) Resistivity of alloy is generally higher than that of constituent metals. Alloys do not get oxidised (burnt) at
high temperatures. Due to this, elements of heating appliances are made of alloys rather than a pure metal.
Ans.30) We know, R = V/I
Therefore, if potential difference between two ends of the component will be halved, and resistance remains constant,
then electric current would also be halved.
Ans.31) Since, resistance is indirectly proportional to the area of cross section, thus current flows easily through a
thick wire compared to a thin wire of the same material.
Ans.32) This means 1 joule of work is done to move a charge of 1 coulomb between two points.
