Section A
(1) When the two waves , travelling the same path and in the same direction, which slight difference in

phenomenon is called beats.
(2) Yes, their can electric intensity at a point where the potential is zero.
Example: - The point at which perpendicular bisector of an electric dipole potential is zero, but intensity is not
zero.

(3)The resistivity (e) of a material is numerically equal to the resistance of a conductor having one meter
length and one square meter area of cross section.

(4)Magnetic lines form continuous closed loops because there are no isolated poles any where.
It completes its path inside the magnet where it goes from the South Pole to North Pole and out side
the magnet, it goes from North Pole to South Pole.

(5) Lenzs law: - The direction of induced emf is such as to oppose the change in magnetic flux that produces it.

(6) The ratio of output emf to the input emf of a transfer is called transformer ratio i.e.
L

(10) The process of combining audio frequency signal with high frequency signal is called modulation.
Necessity: -
1) Low frequencies cannot be transmitted to long distances. Hence the modulation is necessary.
2) To reduce the size of antenna
3) To avoid mixing up of signals from different transmitters.

Section B

(11)Due to relative motion b/w the source and observer, the frequency received by the observer is different
from that of the source. This phenomenon is known as Doppler Effect.
Ex: - The whistle of the approaching train towards an observer at rest appears to be higher than the
original frequency.
Source in motion Observed at rest: -

Let us consider an observer at O who is stationary in a frame in which the medium is also at rest. Let the
source of sound is initially S
1
and moving away form the observer with a velocity V
s

Let the angular frequency of sound wave be W. Time period be T
0
and speed of sound wave be V.

(12) Pile of plates: - A number of glass plates are arranged parallel to each other. This is known as pile of
plates.

These piles of plates are fixed in a suitable tube with an inclination of 32.5 to the axis of the table.
When unpolarised light is allowed to incident on the first plate at the angle of polarization (57.5) part of the
light reflects and remaining part refracts.
After many refractions, the final refracted rays are free from vibrations parallel to the plane of incidence.
Hence plane polarized light is said to be produced due to refraction.

A ray PQ is incident on the first surface AB and makes and angle of incidence i with the normal drawn to
AB. It refracts into the prism and makes an angle r called angle of refraction, with the normal drawn to AB.
The light ray travels along QR in the prism and makes angle of incidence r

on second surface AC of the prism.
Finally after refracting from prism the light ray with the normal to AC and is called
angle of emergence. The angle b/w the emerged ray RS and the direction of the incident ray PQ is called the
angle of deviation.

In vector form,

M =NiA
If plane of the coil makes an angle with the direction of the magnetic field, then = NBiAcos (3)
Principle, construction and working of a MCG: -
Principle: - When the current carrying coil is placed in a uniform magnetic field, it experiences a torque. Due to
this torque, the coil gets deflected by means of which the electric current fowling through the coil can be
measured.
Construction: -
A moving coil galvanometer consists of a strong horseshoe magnet with concave shaped poles N and S.
A rectangular coil insulated cooper wire wound on a light Aluminum (or) brass frames is suspended between
the magnetic poles by means of a phosphor bronze fiber P from a torsion head T
1

A mirror M is attached to the fiber (or) wire to the measure the deflection of the coil by using lamp and scale
arrangement.

Working: - When the current to be measured i is passed through the coil, the coil experiences a deflecting
torque. Then coil be gains to turn. As the coil turns, the phosphor bronze wire gets twisted. Due to this
restoring couple is developed in the phosphor - bronze wire. Let N be the number of turns in the coil.
A be the coil and B be the magnetic induction field acts on the coil.
The deflecting torque = BiAN (1)
If C is the restoring couple per unit twist and 0 is the deflection of the coil
Restoring torque =C 0 (2)
Deflecting torque =restoring torque

Hence the deflection of the coil is directly proportional to the steady current passing through it.

(21) Principle A nuclear reactor is a device in which nuclear fission can be carried out through a self sustained
and a controlled chain reaction. It is also called an atomic pile.
Neutron multiplication factor (k): - The ratio of the number of neutrons generated in the present stage to the
number of neutrons generated in the previous stage is called as neutron multiplication factor.

Water from condenser

The essential component of a nuclear reactor is
(1) Fuel (2) Modular (3) control rods (4) Radiation shielding (5) Coolant

(1)Fuel: - The fissionable material used in the reactor is called nuclear fuel. The nuclear fuel is taken in the
form of rods and sealed in aluminum cylinders.
Ex: Enriched branium, U
235
enriched plutonium (or) U
233
etc.
(2)Moderator: -Moderator is a substance which slows down the fast moving neutrons produced during the
nuclear fission process. The average energy of neutrons released in the fission process is 2 Mev. They are slow
down to thermal neutrons (0.025ev) by moderator.
Ex: - Heavy water, graphite, Hydrocarbon plastics etc.
(3)Control rods: - The fission rate in the reactor is controlled by using the neutron absorbing materials.
Ex: - Cadmium and Boron rods.
(4) Shielding: - During fission reaction ([) and gama(r) radiation are emitted along with neutrons. Suitanle
shielding such as steel lead and concrete walls are provide.
(5)Coolant: - The heat generated in fuel elements is removed by using a suitable coolant to flow around them.
The coolent used are water at high pressures, molten Sodium etc.
Working: - Uranium fuel rods are placed in the aluminum cylinders which are separated by some distance. The
graphite moderator is placed in between the fuel cylinders.
The control rod is kept in the holes of the graphite block. When a few U 235 nuclei undergo fission, fast
neutrons are liberated.

These matrons pass through graphite moderator and loose their energies to become thermal neutrons. These
thermal neutrons participate in further fission process.
By proper adjustment of the control rods in the core the fission events are suitably controlled.
The heat generated is used for heating the coolant head is transferred to water and steam is produced.
This steam is used to turn the steam turbine. This steam turbine is used to drive a generator to produce
electricity or to convert into mechanical energy.
