All we are aware that the basic purpoee of all sciences is to understand the natural phenomena that occur around us. Amongst all the branches of IlCience, physics is one of the most fundamental. It is the foundation on which the other physical sciences such as chemistry, geology, geophysics, astronomy etc. are based. Physics also plays a very impurtant role in the deve10pment ofbkllogical sciences.
In p~cs we perf'drm experiments, make measurements and then propose theories which predict the results of measurements. In this lesson you will first learn about the units of measurements. Every unit of measurement can be expressed in terms of the basic units. This wi11lead us to the concept of dimensions and their applications in other areas of physics.

We will a1IIo catagorise the physical quantities in two groups namely (i) sealanIlind (nl vectors depending upon their nature. Finally, we will learn the simple mathematical operations associated with scalars and vectors. You will find application of vectors in difl'erent fields of physics which you will learn in other leUons during your COW'IIeof study.

After studyjDa this lesson, you should be able to,
• diStinguiah between theJUndl.unental and derived quantities and thfJir S1

• • • write tI!e dirrumaions 0/ di,fffJl'81l1 physical quantitiea; apply the dirrumaional equations; tli/ffri'htUJte between scaler and !leCtor quantities with eJCl1mplea; find thIJ resultant o/two vectors, andresolve a vector into its components;

and compute the produd o/two vectors.




The laws of physics are defined in terms of physical quantities like distance speed, time force, area, volume etc. These quantities in tum are defined in terms of more basic qurntities like mass, length and time and some others which we will study later. If a person measures the quantity of milk, she should express the volume of milk in some accepted units of volume. Like-wise if an engineer measures the length of a road connecting two cities, he should express the di.tance in an accepted unit of length. Such a procedure makes the life more comfortable. When we travel we have an estimate of distance and time" which helps us proper planning of the journey. If there were no units accepted by all, the life would be miserable. Such units are much more essential in scientific measurements to facilitate communication of information at internationallevel.

1.3.1 The SII Units
Keeping this point of view in mind, there have been attempts over centuries in SC'Jeral developed civilizations to. suggest standard units of measurements at regional or national level. Without !.~':"'lg into the long histoty of the various stages of development in the system of units of measurements, we come to the year 1967 when the XIII General Conference on Weights and Measures, rationalised the MKSA (Metre, Kilogram, Second, Ampere) system of units and adopted a system based on six basic units. It was called the 'System International units' known as SI system of units in all languages. In 1"971 the General Conference added another b~c unit 'mole' for the amount of sub"tance to the Sl The present SI system of units bas _ n base or fundamental Units. These are listed in Table 1.1: Table 1.1: Ba.. Units of the SI Syiltem

Dimensions and \Lector Analysis The guiding principle in choosing a unit of measurement is to relate it to ~on man's life as far as possible. As an elllllD.ple, take th.\lnit of mass as lei,.", am or the unit of length as metre. In ou!" day to day business we buy food articles in kg or tens of kg. We buy cloth in metres or tens of metres. If gram had been chosen as the unit of mass:or millimeter as unit of length, we would be unnecessarily using big numbers in our daily life. It is for this Fe8SOn that the basic units of measurements are very closely related to our daily life. The SI system is basically a metric system. The smaller and larger units of the basic units are multiples of ten only. They follow strictly the decimal system. These multiples or submultiples are given special names. Theile are listed in Table 1.3.

1.3.2 Standard. of ••••, Length and Time
Once we have chosen the fundamental units ofthe SI, we must decide on the set of sta· ndards forthe fundamental quantities.
(I) . . . . : The SI unit of mass is ktlogrtUrL It is the mass of a particular cylinder made of Platinum - Iridium alloy, kept at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures in France.

This standard was established in 1887 and there has been no change because this is unusually stable alloy. Prototype kilograms have been made of this alloy and distributed to member states. The national prototype of India is the Kilogram no f,7. This is preselVed at the National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi.



(U, Lellath: The metric system was established in France in 1792. The metre (also written as meter) was defined to be 1/107 times the distance from the Equator to the North Pole through Paris. This standard Ws abandoned for practical reasons. In 1872 an International Commission was eet up in Paris to decide on more suitable metre standard. In 1875 the new metre was defined. It was defmed as the distance between two lines on a Platinum-Iridium Bar stored under controlled condition. Such standards had to be kept under severe controlled conditions. Even then their safety against natural dis~ters is not gauranteed, and their accuracy is also limited for the present requirements of science and technology. In 1983 the metre was redefmed as follows;
One metre is the distance travelled by light in vacuum in a time interval of 1/299792458 second. This definition establishes that the speed of light in vacuum is 299792458 metres per second. Following this definition a new prototype of one metre can always be prepared even if all the existing standards are destroyed in a natural disaster. This is the greatest advantage of this definition.
(iii' Time: The time interval second was originally defined in tern1s of the time of rotation of earth about its own axis. This time of rotation is divided in 24 parts, each part is called an hour. An hour is divided into 60 lIiinutes -and each minute is subdivided into 60 seconds. Thus one secondis equal to 1 186400 part of the solar day. To be more specific, the mean solar -rut, the basic unit of time, was defined as toX -t;xf,; part of the mean _far.", for the year 1900. This defmitionwas accepted upto 1960. It is known that the rotation of the earth varies substantially with time and tnerefore the length of a day is a variable quantity, may be very slowly varying.

The XIII General Conference on weights and measures in 1967 gave the following defmition of the time interval 'second.

ane second is the time required for Cesium - 133 atom to undergo
9192631770 vibmtions.

This definition has its roots in a device which can be named as atomic clock. The frequency of certain atomic transitions can be measured with an accuracy of 1 part in 101~. Theee frequencies (transitioni are exllem.ely stable and are least affected by the environment,

1.3.3 Derived Units
We have defined the three basic units in mechanics. When these basic units, interact, they give rise to quantities which are melllUred in derived units.. Thus, the units which are obtained by the combination of the fundamental units, are called derftIed· WIlD. For example when distance and time interact, they give rise to speed acceleration etc. The speed is measured in metre per second (ml s). Similarly wheI).'length interacts with length. new quantities like area (m2) and volume (m3) etc result. The following tables give some of the derived units commonly used in mechanics and some derived units with special names.

The SI system of units form a coherent set in the sense that the product of any two unit quantities leads directly to the unit" of the resulting quantity. When unit mass (kg) is divided by unit volume (m3) we stra,ight way get the unito(density kg/m3. We should be careful in writing the units of certain quantities in proper order. Let us take the example of work. The unit of work is Newton - meter which has been givena special name Joule. It should be written as Nm and not as mN. If written as mN it would mean 'milli Newton". Now. it is the time to check your progress. Solve the following intext questions and incase you have any problem. check answers given at the end of this lesson.

The dim~siona1 analysis is a very useful tool in checking the correctness of expr~ssions or equations relating various physical quantities. Let us exaJIline a few cases as examples. Exemple 1.1: The mechanical energy of a particle can be written in two difjtmmt forms as fa) l-'ll mrr and (b) mgh. Are both dimensionally same?

la) fbi

>,:, 1m"'" '," M (LIT)' = Y. ML2 'I'"2 mgh = 1M) (LIT') IL) = ML' 'J'"2

We therefore fmd that dimensionally both expressions for energy are equivalent. They differ only by a dimensionless multiplier, (Factor 1/2 in this rase). Example 1.2: Suppose a car starts from rest. The car COuenl a distanoe x in time t while moving with uniform acceleration a. Find an expression.jOr x in terms of t and a. Solation: Suppose the expression for x is of the form,

It is quite often useful to know/ calculate the approximate value of a particu1ar quantity. It helps us in checking the results of any lengthy calculation or to know the approximate magnitude of a quantity. The order of magnitude of a quantity is the power of ten of the number that describes the quantity. We know that the speed of light in vacuum is 3 x 10" m/s. We, therefore, say that the order of magnitude is 8 .. If a quantity increases by four orders of magnitude we mean to convey that the quantity has iIicreased by a factor 104 • Ezample 1.S: The size of an average room is 6 x5x 4m:'. The room is to ~ completelyfilled with cricket balls without crushing them. Ifthe diameter of a ball is 5 em, estimate the number of balls that will fill the room. Solution: The volume of the room The approximate volume of a ball

= 6 x 5 x 4 = 120 m 3
= 5 x5x 5 x 10'" m 3
= 125 x lQ-6 m 3

(You know that the actual volume of a ball is given by 41fr' where T is the


radius of the ball.)

120 6 Hence the total number of balls = 125xl0-<i ::1 X 10 balls.
A more accurate Calculation may give a result which may differ by factor of ten only. .

1.6 VECTORS AIID SCALARS / 1.6.1 Scalar Quantities
We know that the physical quantities are always described by some numbers with proper units attached with them. We describe the density of material, the volume of ajar, the distance between two cities, the Speed of a moving car, the force·that pulls all objects towards-the earth and the torque that ~ens or closes a door. Some of these quantities are ~re8l1ed in numbers with units and it is a complete and correct d.:scription of that quantity. The examples are (i) density of copper - 8.9 x loa kg/m3 (ii) mean radius of the earth - 6.4xlo6m (iii) one day - 8.6 x 10" s; Such quantities do not require any direction to be specified for theif descritpion. These are knoWn as _ _ quantities. '
A _lar CJifAfdlCg has only magnitude and no direction.

1.6.2 Vector Quantities

A IMCCDr .-atuwhas magnitude and direction both.

VectorIIcan always be represented graphically. Let us say that a force of 501;)' N is applied on a body in the direction west to east. This vector quantity ~ C'lll be represented graphically all shown in Fig 1.1. below




ftc1.1: Gnq1Irk:Dl"""""-'af"-· 'The line AB represents this vector. The length of the line AB, say 5 em, represents the magnitude SOON. The direction of the vector is from A to B (West to 'east). The pOint A is called the ~r and the point B with an arrow Diark is called the tip (head) of the vector. y ADDthervector CD ofmagnitude 300N force is1epresented by CD (3 em length) pointing in a different direction.

Any two vectors A. and B are said to he . ._ ifthey'bave the same magnit~l(le and point in the same direction. Graphically, therefore, all such vectors which are of the tiame length and parallel to ea,ch other are said to be equal all Shown herein Fig 1.2. The three vectors. A.,. B and c:': are of equal

length (magnitude) and are parallel to each other (po1nt in the same direction). We therefore say that A = B =C.

1.6.3 Addition orVectors
When two or more vectors are added together, like scalar quantities, they must have the same units. Graphically, it is very easy tC' "dd two v~ctors and find the resultant sum.

The two vectors are shown in Fig. 1.3. (a). T~ find the sum of the two vectors we adopt the following procedure. First, draw the vector A graphically. Then draw the vector B in such a manner that the tail of the vector B starts from the tip of Vector A as shown in fig. 1.3.(b). We know that a parallel movement does not change a vector. A. vector drawn from the tail of A to the tip oCB is the resultant vector R ~ A + B. Following the same procedure. We can find the sum of more than two vectors also. Let us take three vectors A, B and C and we have to find the vector RA+B+C

Following the same rule we can add the vector C to the Vector (A + B) and get to vector R = A t B + C. You can now appreciate that several vectors can be added together in the same manner. Now, following the graphical procedure illustrated above, you can easily sho.,

(i) A + B ~ B + A (commutative oj properly vector addition' (1.1) (ii) A + (B + C) = (A + B) + C (Associative property of vector addition' (1.2)

1.6.4 Subtraction of Vectors
We define the negattueofvectoras a vector which has the same magnitude but points in .the opposite direction. If A is a vector of magnibloe '300 unit s pointing towards east, then -A is a vector of magnitude 300 units poil1ting towards west. Followmg this defmition of·... negati,'c vector we can evaluate the difference of two vectors in the same way as we evaluated the sum of two vectors. Let us evaluate R = A - B ' Thi.." can also be written as R - A + (-Bl The graphical construction of finding A - B is shown in Fig 1.5. First we draw the vector A. We thm draw the Vector -B. To find A + I-B), we now draw the vector -'8 such that the tail of -B coincides with the tip of A. A vector wbich I t · joins th.. tail of A to the tip of -B is the vector (A - B).

Thus. We can characterise the initial velocity of an object in projectile motion by its vertical and horizontal components.1: _ _ I. Then if all other effects.1). every object falls freely with a constant downward acceleration of about 9.Motion in a Plane 4. But we can also launch the body (also called the proJectUe) horizontally without any initial upward component of velocity. Having dermed projectile motion. a food packet dropped by an aeroplane are some common examples of projectile motion.1 Maximum Height.3 PROJECTILE MOTION The motion of a cricket ball hit for a six. Now suppose the projectile is launched with an initial velocity va at an angle 90 . we have to first derme projectile motion. experience only constant vertical acceleration with constant horizontal velocity.4. the acceleration of the ball is equal to g. Can you think of some more examples? In most such cases. known as the angle oJ eleucltion.3.

You know that near the surface of the earth. . h · Y\ L x<tV.2). As you know. Time of Flight and Range of a Projectile Let us analyse projectile motion to determine its maximum height. ". stance. effects of wind and friction due to air are ignored. namely. time of flight and range. Now suppose you throw a ball from some initial position with some initial velocity. Hence they ate all examples of projectile motion (see Fig 4. Let us take the positive x-axis in the horizontaidirection and the positive y-axis in the vertical direction (Fig 4. the coordinates of the origin are x cO.. 61 . This kind of motion is called projectile motion. . ~ ". To study their motion. the motion of the ball is motion with constant vertical acceleration and zero horizontal acceleration.for in. we deJfne projectile motion as motion which has constant velocity in a certain direction and constant ac· celeration in the direction perpendicular to that oJ velocity. These factors are important if we want to launch a projectile to land at a certain target . the body moves with an initial vertical component of velocity. In doing so. A football hit by a child. ajavelin thrown by an athlete.O. we will be ignoring all other effects such as wind or air resistance.

1 Work Done by a Constant Force Let us consider a constant force F acting ouan object that moves a distanced along a straight line.1).d Example 6. The worlle done by a constantforee on an object is the product of the component of the force along the direction of motion and the distance mo'/led. For example.1.

In this section we will examine three forces - elastic force (spring force), gravitational force and the kinetic frictional force with regard, to the work I?erformed by them in a round trip. i.e, let us calculate the work done by each one of them on object,

(a) in taking it from an initial position to a final position, in a path:
(b) bringing it back to the same initial position in the same path, as a

simple situation to deal with.

Aforee is said to be conservative if it does no net work on an object in a round trip for any conservative foree.
W.." =

W; ...2 + W2 ...1

= 0


We have discussed the work done by the spring force in section 6.3 and from Eq (6.7), the work done is given, W = -"2k(x,- x, ) where Xl and x, refer to the final and initial position coordinates. The work done by the spring in taking it from position 1 to 2 ~
2 2

1. Elastic (Spring) Force:

1 ""' 2-\. W; ...2 = "2"\X}



and while it is brOUght back from position 2 to 1 (initial position).

The net work done by the spring in the round trip

W.., = Hi"'2 +~"'1 =0.
Therefore, the elastic force is a conservative force. We could have obtained, the same result, by substituting, Xi for the entire trip, in Eq. (6.7) directly. .


Consider the motion of a ball, ihrown ver~ tically up; during both upward and downward motion till it comes ba:ck to initial position. In this case also the net work done by the gravitational force on the ball in the round trip is zero, henQC it is a conservative force.

2. Gravitational force :


Work and EneI'gy So, when a ball moves up and comes down to its initial position, the net work done by the gravitational force acting on it is zero.. Try to verify it yourself.

3. lI'rictlonal force : If we consider the frictional force acting on a
body, then we find that the frictional force does negative work while moving from postiltn one to second

Jr..... =FdcosfJ=F,dcos(I800)
- -F,d. For the return trip

w, ..., =FdcosfJ=F, (d)cas(180")
as frictional force acting on a body always opposes the movement (and therefore against).
The net work done by frictional force on the round trip is non zero. There·fore, the frictional force is a non-conservative force.

Thus from the above examples we notice that the work done by a conservative force is ~.. (or recapturable) in the sense that if the work is.. done "" an object on something else in one part of its path, an equivaI.Cnt amount of work will be done on the object in its return path.. For example, in the case 01" a spring force, the work done on the spring ill deforming it is recovered when the spring comes back to its original configuration (shape and size). Simjlarly, in the caSe of a ball moving up, the work done on the ball in raising it to a certain height is equal to the ~ork done by" the gravitational force on the ball (recovered) in its downward journey. The work done against conservative forces are recapturable where as it is not so in the case of non-conservative forces. That is why non-conservative forces also known as ....fpat .... foiea.


We will find it useful to relate work done by conservative force and poten·ttal .,..,., of a system where it operates. This is dealt in the next section.

The work done by the external agent from Eq (6.1).

- my h cos (0°) - myh

Physics The external agent does mgh amount of work on the mass m. But the mass m hasn't gained any speed. What happened to the work done by the agent on the mass in lifting it? The answer is the work done mgh has been 'stored'. in the earth-mass system. It is potentially available. All we need to do is to extract it to let.go of the mass. The mass will drop down a distance h. The kinetic energy acquired in the fall is,
K= Y. mrf' K= mgh.

= Y.

m (2 gl1)

Thus, the work done by the agent in changing the configuration (relative position of mass - earth system) is recovered during the faIl of mass m (original configuration). The energy potentially _flab,. by the ufrtIa! oj posftfon oj mass m with respect to the earth fa known (IS graDItational potential energy oj mass - earth system. Likewise, a .wound-up watch spring, for example, has potential energy. For as it unwinds, it does work to move the hands of the watch. The watch spring acquired its potential energy because work was done on it by the person in winding up (chaning the configuration of spring watch system). Potential energy is associated with a system, and not with a single particle. When conselVative forces perform work in a system, potential energy of a system changes. Only changes in potential energy do count in calculating work done (see Eq 6.13). Now, solve the following questions and check how much you have learnt about potential energy.

Work and




Consider a system in which only conseIVRtive forces perform work (such as mass - spring or ball- earth system). We have then, from work-energy theorem ofEq. (6.11).
Wcon =IlK

Where Wro.. refers to the work done by a conservative force. We have from the defining relationship ofEq (6.13).
Wron =-Ilu

where Wcon refers to the work by conservative force. Combining the above two equation we have

In other words, for-a system in which- a conservative force does work, we can write ilK + IlU= 0 (6.14) What does the above equation (6.14) mean?
In any process, if the kinetic ensrgy of the sysWin inc:reases, the potential ensrgy decreases by an equal amount and vice wrsa.

We define a quantity E, called the mechanical ensrgy of a sYstem as the sum of kinetic energy K and potential energy U. E=K+U (6.15) We then write Eq. (6.14) in the modified form as IlE = 0 (Conservative forces only) (6.16) The mechanical energy of a system remains a constant. This is called the principle of consenratfon of mechanical ensrgy for conservative forces. In other words, the mechanical energy of a system is comieroed, meaning it neither increases nor decreases. Now we see the reason for the name 'conservative force" : for such forces ~orking on a system the mechanical energy is conserved or remains a constant. Let us now consider an example for the use of conservation of mechanical energy.

In daily experience, when two objects hit each other we speak of collision as an event. The objects that collide might be, a cricket ball and a bat, a

Work and Energy hammer and a nail or at times two or more.vdIicles.pn the roadl

A comet approaching the sun, swings around it and continues its course
with an increased speed is also .an example of collision. Here the particles (comet and sun) do not actually 'touch'. However there is an interactive force, gravitational force, that is not a contact force. Our knowledge of the atomic and subatomic world - electrons, protons, neutrons - have come from experiments involving collisions, There are two iInportant laws to be followed in all collisions, namely, laws of conservation of energy and momentum. Here we apply these laws to look at the transfer of kinetic energy from one particle to another.

6.9.1 Inelastic Collisions In One Dimension
In inelastic colli:!lions the kinetic energy of the system is not conserved, although the total energy of the system remains constant. The lost kin~tic energy is transformed into internal energy. A bullet fired into a target getting embedded is-an example pf an inelastic collision - sometimes knmvn . as a perfect inelastic collision.

and allows only a slow !Iecrease in the speed. We have noted that in rotational motion the angular velocity corresponds to tIle linear velocity in linear motion. The other useful theorem concerning the moment of inertial is known the theorem ofperpendicular axes. Let us choose three mutually perpendicular axes. say x and y are in the plane of the body. Any other point can be fIXed and the body can still have rotational motion. We can now writ!' down relations for the rotatIonal motion similar to the ones you have derived for the linear motion. 7. the z axis. with its large moment of inertia. the flywheel rcsi"ts this attempt. These are (i) (ii) the theorem ofparaUel axes.

It is not necessary tha. It is applicable only to plane bodies. prevents jerky motions and ensures a smooth ride for the passangers.. Suppose the given rigid body rotates about an axis passing through any point P other than the centre of mass. Because of its large moment of inertia. It allows only a gradual increase in speed. it must corresponds to the linear acceleration in the linear motion. Olot + Yo <X t' (7.. The moment of inertia about this axis can be found from a knowledge of the moment of inertia about a parallel axis through the centre of mass.17) where Mis the mass of the body and dis the distance between the two axes (Fig 7. it works against the at.not. and the thir<l. two of which. What is the relation between these two? Let us ftnd out. This is known as the theorem of parallel *Be . But now the axis of rotation will pass through this ftxed point.aflywheel To understand how a flywheel works.------ . We explain below th~se theorems and their applications. Thus. e. Most machines which produce rotational motion have as one of their components a disc which has a very large moment of inertia. dc.the moment of inertia has been put to a great practical use. Use similar argument to show that the angle e through which a body rotates corresponds to the distance cauered in linear motion. Since angular acceleration (denoted usually by <X) is the rate of change of angular velocity.. imagine that the driver of the engine wants to increase suddenly the speed. and the theorem ofperpendicular axes.2 Theorems of'lnonlent of inertia There are two theorems which connect moments of inertia about various axes. then l={.+MtP d (7.

OBJECTIVES After studying thls lesson. the change in length takes place.

Repulsio~ _ distance Ftg. In solids molecules are close to each other very nearly at the equilibrium separation. the separation Is much larger and the moleCular force Is very weak.1 : Graph between intermolecular force and tntemwlecular separation The variation of intermolecular force with the variation of intermolecular distance is shown in Fig. Due to high intermolecular forces they are almost fixed at their positions. when the distance between two molecules is greater than ro' then they attract each other but when the distance between them is less than ro they repel each other. This separation ro is called equilibrium separation. But when the molecules come very close to each other. the' attraction force between them begins to decrease. The molecules attract each other with a certain force. The magnitude of ro is of the order of 10-10 m. You may guess why liquids do not have fixed shape.1. and when the distance. the repulsive force increases more rapidly compared to attractive force. Thus. It takes the shape of vessel tn willch It Is filled. 8. the molecules begin to repel each 9ther. a change in 154 . Molecules of a gas are much more free to move tnside as well as outside (if possible) the mass of the gas.4 ELASTICITY As you know that a rubber cord or metalic spring is tied at one end and a force is applied at the other end. The attractive force is week and the molecules are more free to move inside the whole mass of the liquids. by hanging weight there . becomes too small. As the separation between molecules decreases. In gases. If molecules come still closer.3 MOLECULAR THEORY OF MATTER You are famlliar that every matter is made up of molecules. 8. You may understand why a solid has a fixed shape if no external forces act to defQnn It. In Uquids the average separation between the molecules is somewhat larger. At separation ro net force between molecules is zero. .Physics 8.<. the net attraction force between them increases. not have fixed shape and size? Now can you think why gases do ' 8. nus force is called intermolecular force.

The velocity of flow changes when it has to flow from a wider tube to a narrower tube. they do not show elastic behaviour. There are some other 1ri. Do you know why? This can be expjatned on Bernoulli's principle. but comes to rest after spreading to small distance. which deals with the stationaxy liqulds. Many of you must have experienced that when you press.

Macroscopic simply means. Each of these molecules show the characteristic properties of the substance of which it is a part. Microscopic on the other hand is confined to quantItI~ concerning with individual molecule.3. This motion of molecules is random. the molecules of velocities making collisions for a short ttme with each other and with the Wa1I. The klnetIc theory makes assumptions. The kinetic theory'of gases attempts to relate the macroscopic properties such as pressure. John Dalton in 1803 wade use of this concept of matter that is.solume and temperature of an ideal gas with its iDtcroscopic properties such as speed and mass of its molecules. Now let us see how a gas fills a container. v) the time taken in a colission is negligible as compared to the time interval by a molecule between two successive collisions. At this potnt the terms macroscopic and microscopic need a little elaboration. Later it was found that the molecules of substance ~ in constant motion. This led to the development of kinetic theory of matter. According to the kinetic theory of gases. The coheSive force (which binds molecules together) between the particles of matter which constitutes a gas is thus extremdy small. 214 . certain 11. (1) a gas consists of a very large number of small molecules which are considered to be rigid. The kinetic theory has been developed in the case of gases. It is due to this -reason that a gas fills a container completely in which it is kept. The mathematical basis of the kinetic theory of gases was established by Maxwell and Clausius. pertaining to a whole assembly of a large number of molecules. matter is composed of large number of molecules.Physics n.1 Assumption of Kinetic Theory of Gases Clark Maxwell in 1860 showed that the well known properties of a gas can be explained on the basis of certain assumptions which are called as the assumptions of kinetic theory of gases.s of the container and rebounding from them. tv) 'between collisions the molecules move in a straight line with uni- form velocity.

Thus we need a reliable method to observe the relative hotness or coldness i.3. The quantity of heat energy required to heat 1 gram of water from 14.5"C is called one calorie. Kilocalorie (k Cal) Is the larger unit of heat energy. Our senses are usually un-reliable and misleading. Heat is a form of energy.e.3. the degree ofhotness of a body is its temperature.1: Mercury TIlermometer to a larger tube. a piece "fhl Irning charcoal is very hot. Thus. Scientists have developed various types of thermometers. Forexample. This property can be used for the measurement of temperature by various thermometers.

A device used to measure temperature is a thermometer.2. temperature of bodies. Concept of temperature When we talk of the temperature of a body we often think the degree of hotness or coldeness of the body.at higher temperature to the body at lower temperature. Stmllarly. Some bodies are foune! hotter and other colder as compared to a given body. heat also flows from a body. when two bodies at different temperatures are placed in contact. The energy which flows from a body at higher temperature to a body at lower temperature. and 1 kCai = 10-3 Cal Also 11 Cal = 4. Flow of heat : You can understand this concept from the following example:. When we touch a body our senses provide us With a qualitative idea of temperature.. Water Will flow from the container having water up to the higher level to the container in which level of water is low. For example: If We remove an ice tray and a package of frozen vegetables from the freezer. Calorie is the smallest unit of heat energy.5 "C to I5.1 Heat You are familiar With the sensation of hot and cold. It is denoted as: I Cal.::-in thermometers. This sensation of hOl dnd cold can be understood in terms of heat of the body. the Ice tray feels colder to the hand even though both are at the same temperature.

After turning off the heat you find that the hotter water is near the surface. you should be able to : • distinguish between the three modes of heat transfer I1Ll. In the present lesson we will go on to learn about the processes or ways by which bodies heat or cool. convection and radiation.1 INTRODUCTION . we have studied thennodynamics.Il1ely conductton. • describe the principle and construction ofa perfectly black body and draw graph between intenSity and wavelength of radiant energy at different remperatures. The other processes of heat transfer require the presence of a material medium. The water near the base of the pot might be cooler. We already have some idea regarding these processes of heat transfer. and solve problems based • on these laws. We will learn more about all the processes of heat transfer in this unit. • define the coeffident of thermal conductivity and solve problems based on conduction. This energy is essential for life to survive on our planet earth. When one end of a metal is heated. . the other end also becomes hot. The radiant energy from the sun comes to us after passing through the vacuum space between the earth and sun. explain phenomena based on heat transfer. 13. We will also learn what role heat transfer plays in our liVes.one of us radiates energy at the rate of nearly 70 watts? Here we will study the radiation in details. Heat energy falling on the walls of our homes enters the room through this process called conduction. • state Wlen's Law andStefan . we lmow that the heat energy flows from warmer bodies to cooler bodies.

Ohm's JaW gives current - voltage relation in simple eIectrical circuits. But when the circuit is complicated, you will face difficulty in finding current distribution by Ohm's law.

Ifwe take currents approaching point A in Fig 16.13 as positive and that leaving the point as negative, then the above relation may be written as

Hence the fust Jaw may also be stated in other words that tile ~ 11II1II ofclII7"eIIIII til "jfmditHt is UTO.
lGrc:bhoff's fust law tells \IS that there is no accwnulation of charge at auy point if sIeady

As you have learnt that a resistance can be measured by Obm's law using a voltmeter and an ammeter in an electrical circuit. But this measureznent is not accurate. To measure it more accurately Kristie devised and Wheat Stone popularized a special network desrgn called Wheat Stone Bridge. It is an arrangement of four resistances which can be used to measure one of them in terms of the

On closlngthe key, ingenaiU there will be some CUl'IeIlti flowing Ibroughthe galvauometer and you will get some deflection in the galvanometer It indicates that 1Iicn is some potential difference between points B & D.

We sbaII now consider the following three ~: (i) Point B is at higher potential than point D: Current will flow from B towards D and galvanometer will show deflection in one direction. (ii) PoiDt B Is at lower potential tlaan poiat D: Current will flow from point D towards B and galvanometer will sbow deflection in opposite direction: (iii)Both points B and D are at same potential: In this case no cummt flows through the galvanometer which will show no deflection i.e. the galvanometer is in oxmditioll. In this condition the Wheat stones bridge is said to be in the Idt* o/lHIJaat. The points B and D will be at the same potential only when the potential drop across P is equaI to that across R.

Elecuic CIIITeIIt

EMF is the short name of electromotive force. EMF of a cell or battery equals the potential difference between its terminals when the terminals are not connected exlerna/Iy. You may easily understand the difference between e.m.f. and potential difference of a cell. For this CODD"!'t a cell in a circuit having a resistor R and key K. A voltmeter of very high resistance is connected in parallel to the cell as shown in Fig 16.23. When key is closed voltmeter reading "ill decrease. Do you explain the reason for this decrease in voltmeter reading? Actually when key K is opened no siguificant current flows through ihe loop having cell and \'oltmeter due to very high resistance of voltmeter. Hence, voltmeter reading is equal to e.m.f. E of the cell which is the potential difference between tenninaIs of the cell when no current is drawn from it. When key K is closed current flows outside and inside the cell. The cell introduces a resistance r, called internal resistance to the circuit. Let current I be flowing in the circuit. Potential drop Ir across internal resistance r due to current flow acts opposite to the e.m.r. of the cell. Hence, voltmeter reading will be E-/r and is equal to V. But V = IR

Thus, e.m.f ofa cell is always greater than the potential difference across external resistance unless internal resistance is zero. E.m.f of a cell depends on: H) the liquid Used in the cell (ii) the material of the plates, and (iii) temperature of the liquid. Note that the e.m.f. of a cell does not depend at all on the size of the cell i.e. on the area of plates and distance between then. This means that if you have two cells of different size one big and one small, can the e.m.f.s be the same? Yes the e.m.f. will be the same if the cells are made up of same material and liquid. Then what is the difference? Ifthe cell is of large size it will be of less resistance to the passage of current through it.

You have already studied how to measure. e.m.f. of a source or potential difference across a circuit element using voltmeter. An ideal voltmeter should have infinite resistance SO that it does not draw any current when connected across a source of e.m.f. Practically it is ""t possible to make a voltmeter which will not draw any current To overcome this difficulty a circuit devised by Pnggendorf and known as potentiometer is used for measming the e.m.f. of a . source or the potential difference across a circuit clement without drawing any current from it. It employs a null method. The potentiometer can also be used for the measurement of the internal resistance of a cell, the current flowing in a circuit and comparison of resi$tances.

16.7.1 Description of the Potentiometer
The potentiometer consists of a wooden board onwbich a number of resistance wires (usually ten) of uniform cross - sectional area are stretched parallel to each other. The wire is of maganin or nichrome. These wires are joined in series by thick copper slrips. In this way these wires together act as a single wire of length equal to the sum of the length of all the wires. The end terminals of the wires are provided with connecting screws.
A meter scale is fixed on the wooden board parallel towires. A joCkey ( a sliding contact iDaker) is provided with the arrangement. It makes a knire edge ~t at any desired point on the wife. Jockey has a pointer which moves over the scale. It determines the position of the knife edge contact. In Fig. 16.25 a ten wire potentiometer is shown. A and Bareendsof the wire.

· Physics Let us measure an unknown voltage V lillY a cell of e.m.t:E. The positive terminal of the cell is CODDeCted to end A of die .wire and neptive terininaI through a galvanometer to jockey having variable contact Y. Note that V mUst be less than E. Let you start jockey moving from A towards B. Suppose at position Y potential fall across the length Ayl of the wire be less I:bJII! voltage V. Than current in the loop Ayl XA due to voltage V exceeds the current due to potembd diff=ce across AY". Hence galvanometer shows some deflection in one direction. Then jockey is moved away say at Y' suc:h that potential fall across AY' is greater than the voltage V, then galvanometer shows deflection in other direction. Now in be'- yo and Y· the jockey is moved slowly. The stage is reached say point Y such that potential fall across A Y is equal to voltage V. Then point X and Y will be at same voltage _ bonce the galV11JlO11lC1er will nOt show any deflection i.e. null point is achieved. If'l is the length betWeen A and Y, then
V=At =_1
I ,


Thus, the unknown voltage V is measured when no current is drawn from it. The potentiometer has certain advantage. They are as follows :

(i) When the potentiometer is balanced, no current is drawn from the circuit on which the measurement is being made. (ii) It produces no change in condition in any circuit to which it is connected. (iii) It makes use of null method for the measurement, the galvanometer used need not be calibrated.

16.7.3 Comparison of the E.M.fs of two Cells by Potentiometer
You have aJready studied how to measure the e.m.f. of a cell using a potentiometer. We shall now extend the same technique for comparison of C).m.fs oftwo cells. Let us take, for example, a Daniel cell and a Leclanche cell and let E and E be their e.m.f s.

Potentiometer connections are made as shown in Fig 16.27. One cell say of e.m.f E is connected in the ,circuit by connecting terminals of 1 and 3 ofkey K. The balance POin~ is obtained by moving the jockey on the potentiometer wire as expl~ earlier. Let the balance point on potentiometer be at point Y and let the lengtbAY, = ',. Then other cell of e.m.f. E, is connected in the circuit by conn~tiDg terminall: 2 and 3 ofthe key K, . Again baJanc~ is obtained at point Y and let length AY = t . 2 , 2

16.7.4 Determination orInternal Resistance of the Cell
You have learnt that cells always offer resistance to the flow of current through them, which is often very small. This resistance is called the internal resistance of the cell and depends on the size ofthe cell i.e. the area ofthe plates immersed in the liquid, the distance of the plates and the strength of the electrolyte used in the cell. Let us now learn how to measure the internal resistance ofthe cell using a potentiometer. Connections are made as shown in Fig 16.28. There is a cell of emf E and internal resistance r. A resistance box R with a key K, is connected in parallel 'with the cell. Rest of the circuit +E

is similar to that in preYious seeUOD.. First of all key X is closed and a current I flows thrOugh wire AB. The key X, is kept open and on moving jockey balance is obtained with
the cell at point say Y . Let A Y

= I, then

E =Jt


Now key X, is closed.This introduces a resistance across the cell. A currens say I, will flow in loop E RK E due to cell E . This current I is given by Ohm's law as,

Where r is the intemal resistance of the cell. Now. terminal poteDliai difference V, oft"e cell will be less than E, by an amount I, r. The value of V, is V=IR= - - R




Then. potential difference V, is balanced on the potentiometer wire without change in current I. Let the balance point be at point Y, such that AY,= e, then

R+r t _ _ =_1



or r=R( i.-I) Thus. by knowing R. e,. ande, the value ofr is calculated.

ii) for a pair of coils situated near so that the flux associated with one coil passes throllgb the other. a changing current in one coil induces an'emfin tI1e other.ecall that the concepts of resistance and capacitance help us to evaluate energy conversion and energy storage in electrical circuits. B. ..4) Thus.. An induced emf can appear in a circuit element called an induetor which possesses an indlldlUU:e. an induced emf appears in that coilthis property is calied self-inductance of the coil. The current produces a magetic field. However. we are usually interested in circuit elements that are disigned to exploit inductive effects. .4 INDUCTANCE When a current changes in a circuit.1 Self-Inductance Let us consider a loop of a conducting material. Thtis.. The total magnetic flux linking the loop is In the absence of any external source of magnetic flux (for example.3) «l + The proportionality constant between magnetic flux and current is called the self-btductance ofth!\loop. In this case we speak of IIJIIIlIIll-lnduclance of the coil.. If a part of this field passes through the circuit itself then an emf is induced in it. For example. an acljacent coil carrying a current). R.(20. Now suppose there is another circuit in the neighbourhood ofthis circuit. a changing magnetic field is produced around it.f"l)~OOO\o If the coil is around an iron core so as to enhance its magnetic effect. induced emfs can appear in circuits in two ways: i) by changing the magnetic field linked to a coil. Let us stody more about the phenomenon. Therefore the flux threading the loop is also proportional to the current (I) in the loop .. The loop contains an electric current. Then the magnetic field through that circuit changes.. Self-inductance can exist in wires. the loop might be an intricate connection of components in an integrated electronic circuit or it might be a carefully engineered coil of wire.< to evaluate the amown of magnetic energy sotred by a solenoid. The concept of inductance helps u. Now. The magnetic field gives rise to a magnetic flux. electrical transmission lines. The symbol for an Inductor is .. and is defined by . Self-inductance is given the symbol L. and arbitrarily shaped loops. 20. 20.+=Ll .4. self-inductance is a very important characteristic of a coaxial transmission line. (20. Such circuit elements ire called Indllctors and generally are coils of wire of varied shapes and sizes. inducing an emf in it.E1ec1rOmagnetic Induction and A1ten1111iD& CurraIIs One of the applications of Faraday's Law is to determine the behaviour of simple circuit elementS in circuits with currents that change. the current in the loop and the magnetic flux threading the loop are related by the property of self-inductance of the loop. An inductor can store magnetic energy. the Biot-Savart's law requires that the magetic field be proportional to the current in the loop. it is symbolized by .

This induced emf is also called the back emf. You have just studied that the self-inductance of an inductor is a measure of the opposition to the change in current through it. therefore. A solenoid is a device with a simple geometry andis widely . In principle. Thus. Let us.. the magenetic flux threading the loop changes... the henry is a rather large unit. (20.6). We begin by difIerentating Eq.solenoid. tells us that the back e"lf ill an inductor depends on the rate of change of the inductor current and acts to oppose that change ill ClU'1'ellt.5) ~ Using Faraday's law ofinduetion. This is the form ofFaraday' s law that is applicable to electrical circuits. an instantaneous change in the inductor current cannot occur. (20. In acCordance with Lenz's law. . (20.used in electric8I circuits. we can calculate Ibe self-inductance of any circuit. but in practice it is difficult unless the geometry is pretiy simple.banging rapidly produces a large induced emf. At any moment the current in the loop is detennined by both the self-induced emf and the potential difference created by the imposed ertlf(a baltety.6).. for example) between the ends ofloop. whereas a current r. the Induced emf is proportional to the time rate of change of current in the loop. abbreviated H... we can say that. mH (10"' H). Since an infinite emfis impossible. the'self-inducedemfin this case (closing the switch) opposes the change that produces it. How do we determine the magnitude ofthe self-inductance of an inductor'? . we can replace dcZlldt with the negative of the induced emf (-&) so that .4) with respect to time to obtain =dt . produces zero induced emf. The current through an indlldor cannot change lnstantIIneollSly. Eq. volts units of units ofdIldt =----amperes/second = ohm-second An ohm-second is called a henry.--:~. The inductance of an inductor depends on its geometry..(al Faraday's Law in Terms of Self-Inductance: So far you have studied that if the current in a loop is changed. and microhenry ~ (l~H) instead. called a self-induced emf.. so from Eq. For most applications. ·~oo . For self-induced emfs in a drc6lt. This change in magnetic flux is accompained by an induced emf in the loop..(20.. and we often use the more convenient units millihenry. Note that a constant current. The units of self-inductance are· units of L = -..6) According to this equation.. let us now obtain a form of Faraday's law relating the induced emf to the rate of change of current.

. Electricity is by far the most popular fonn of energy.. It exists in nature but in nonusable fonn. You must have observed dwing rainy days the douds producing lightning thunderbolt that c;ontaiDs millions of volts, you know that this type of electricity cannot be used. How do you get the electricity at your bome? At once you will say that it is from electricity boards, power houses, like Delhi Vidyut Board, Bombay Electric Supply and Transport etc. Tbese are the supply undertaking. They only distribute the electricity received from generating stations which convert different foons ofenergy into electrical energy e.g. thermal, bydroelectric, nuclear power etc.

As you know that geocration of electricity may take place some bundereds of kilometer'.s a\''llY from your place, at sites, where the facilities are available' like dams, coal mines, natural ps and oil reserviors. eel. From generating station to power bouses (distributing agencies) and from !here to your bouse. transmission of power is done througb wires (transmission lines) and transformers whicb carry them from one place to the other. In this lesson you will learn on how the electricity is produced using different sources and bow the electric power is being carried from generating plants to your home?

After studying this iesson,you will should be able to :

One of the most important SOUl'Ce$ of electrical power is the electromagnetic soun:e called genel'lllOl'. A generator is a device that converts _chemical energy into electrlcal.energy with the help of magnetic field No other source of electric power can produce as 1arge amounts ofel~~wer as the generators. A conductor or a selofconducton isrotaredin a magneti~ field and voltage are lieveloped in the rotating conductor due to elemomagneti.c induction (about which you have studied in the previous lesson). The CIICIBY for the rotaIion of the conductors can be suppl~ by diesel. steam, water falls or even by nuclear _tots. Accordingly. we have diesel generators, hydrogenerators, thetmal generators and atomic generators. There are two types ofgenertlfOrs (iJ alternating current generator or A.c. generator also called alternators. (ii) direct current generator or D.C. generator or dynamo. Both these generators wor\.s on the principle of electromagnetic induction.

21.3.1 A.c. Generator or Alternators
Basic principle: A generator basically involves a loop ofwire rotating in a magnetic field. In Fig 21.1 we show a rectangular loop of wire H placed in a Wliform magnetic A field. As the loop is rotated along an horizantal axis. the o magnetic flux through the loop changes. To see this. recall that the magnetic flux through the loop as slown in the fignre in given by


• (t) = B.


Where B is the field. ~ is a Fig. 21.1 : Reclangvlar loop "1fIDIJ-jWd. unit vector normal to the plane of the loop and A is its area. If the angle between the field direction and the loop is denoted bye,



When we rotate the loop with 8 constant angu1ar velocity CD, the angle 9 eiuonps as

6=6 +rot •
Thus. the flux through the loop c'-8es in the following _


• (t) =AB cos (8. + rot)


Now, using Faraday's law of el~c induction, we can csJcuIate the emfinduced in the loop to be, .


E(t) =-'d(=mABsin(9. +Cllt)


Thus, a sinusoidal emf is produced in the loop. In this 1D8IIl1eI", the mechanicsJ energy of rotation is converted into an emfwbich can be used to derive current in an external circuit. The emf induced through a coil with N IlUDlber oftums is given by, e(l) =N m.4B sin (9. + rot)
COlUtnlCtioa : When a loop of wire is rotated in a JIIII8IIdic field it develops a, voltage across its terminals as discussed above. The natun: ofout put voltage hss the form of a sine

Basic prindple: Basically all generators are A.C.geumators, but !be A.C. wave form or the sine wave produced by an A.C.ge:nerator cen be converted into D.C. fOnD by the commutator and brushes.

Each half of 1bc commutator is connortM pa,,_"11y to 0IIII cad of1bc loop and 1bc c:ommutator rotates with the·loop. Each blush presses against one sep1eDIlJf 1bc commutator. The brushes remains statiCllllty while 1bc ~ lalor rotales. The brushes press against opposite segments of the. commulalor and every time the voltage reverses polarity. brushed also switch from one segment of commutatmto 1bc oCher.

TransfOrmer is a device that increases 01' decnasu the ~ 0/Q vol;' 01' t:IIt'mII through electromagtU!tic induction, A transfonru:r,bIS atleast two windiDgs IiDked by • connnon magnetic flux but turns are electrically iDsttlatcd 1iom one'aootbcI'. The traosfurmer windJDg c:oonected across a supply source, which may be an Ie main power or. output of. generator, is called primJI1y witulUrgs. The transformer windingconneded across the load RL is called a st!comIiuy winding. In this winding emf is induced when A.C. is applied 10 the primary. The primary and secondmy windings are said 10 be elcctrically isolated &om each other but magnetically connected or coupled to one another with magnetic flux.
Rasically. a transfonneris a device which transfers electric energy (or power) from aprimary winding to a secondary Winding, There is no electrical connection between the primary winding and the secondaJy winding (s), The primary converts the changing electrical energy in to magnetic energy. The secondary converts the magnetic energy back inlO electric energy.

An ideal transformer is one in which
(i) the resistance of the primary coil is zero; (ii) there is no ftux leakage so that there is the same magnetic flux throughout eacb twn of

the primary and sec:ondary coils; (iii) the secondary coil is an open

Construction : Figure (21.6) illustrates the configuration of a typical transformer. It consists of two coils called primary and secondary wound on the core (former) Here. coils of insulated wire are wound around a ring AC ofiron made of the isolated laminated current'il&) sheets instead of a solid core.

In practice, a non-ideal transformer shows some pmwr losses. Euagy "-s results from the following causes,
(a) Resistive heating in the copper coils - eoope!' IOID. (b) Eddy current losses in the form of heat of iron core - Eddy CllJ7'enll08e

(c) MagnetisatiOD heating of the core ducing repeabed revenal of magnetization hysleresis loss. (d) Flux leakage from the core. Coefficiut of Coapliac : The portion of the flux that links one c:uiI to the other coil is referred to as the coefficient of coupling. The coefficient of coupling can range from 0 to I. When all the tux is coupled, the coefficient ofci>upliDg is 1. Souletimes it is expressed as a percentage. Thus, 100 percent coupling means coefficient of coupling of 1. Coupling in transformers with lamiMted' iron core is vee)' close to 100 pen:ent. This is • because all 'the flux is CODI:entrated in the hi&h permeability core on wbiI:h the coils are wound.

21.4.1 Efficiency of Trauformers
The iron core and the copper coils of a transformer both convert some electric energy into heat energy. ThiS. of course. is why a'transformer heats up when in operation. The purpose of a transformer is not to provide heat but to transfer enell!Y from the primary to secondary. Therefore, any heal proauced by the transformer represents inefficiency. Since, the energy is equal to power times time, the efficiency ofa transformer (expressed as a percentage) is calculated by the following formula: Percent efficiency

Thus. the transformer is 92 % efficient.
In the above example p .. - p .. = (1880 - 1730) W '" ISO W. the dift'aence bet",_dIe received power and deliVered power is loSt in the tnwsformer. The power Joss ina1lausbmer is caused by l. Hysteresis loss 2. Eddy mm:nt loss
3. Copper(PR)loss

The first two of these losses occur in the transformer core material. The last occurs in die windings. All three convert eleclric energy to heat energy.

In 0\: ler words what is gained in voltage is lost in cmteDt.

, ••e efficiency of a transformer is very high. it being between 90 and 96~. It is one of the most efficient machine known. Maximum efficiency is obtained from a transformer when it is fully loaded. For small transformers (less than 10 W), maximwn efficiency may be less than 70 percent. With transformers larger than 1000 W, it is more than 95% efficient.
As the load in the secondary circuit is decreas~ the efficiencyoflhe tranformerde~l'r!ase.J. This is because current flow in a transfonner's primary does not decrease in direct proportion to decrease in the load. The primary current still causes substantial core losses and copper

losses even when the secondary is lightly loaded.

21.4.2 Types of Transformers
There are basically two types of transformers. step-up or step-cIown. Step lIP transformer increao;es the voltage (decreases the current) in the secondary windings. Where as a steptransformer decreases the voltage (increases the current) across the secondruy windings.


Here. you must keep one thing in mind that a transformer doesn't create more energy at the out put (secondary) of a step-up transfonner.. This is because, when voltage increases.. the current decreases in tbe same proportion to keep the power saine.

It should be recalled that mutual induction takes place only when the current/voltage in the primary is varying. If this current/voltage remains constaDt then the transformer can 110\ work. A transformer is a mutual inductor specially tHsignedfor the effiCient ID.change of energy between the two coils.

Ifthe resistance ofa transmission line in II n, then !he thermal power prodw:ed in'!he lines, I'R is (250 x 250 x II) =6875 W. This means that 0.69%of!he powerdelivenled by !he generator is lost as heat Bec:ause of the resistance of !he lines, a potential ditrorem:e is produced across !he ends of each line. This amounts to V = IR = 250 A x 110 = 2750 V. Thus, the potential difference across !he primary winding of !he slep-c;\own transformer is 40,000 - 2750 = 37, 250V. In practice. at the con!\l!Dler end potential difference reduced to 230 V (rms). If!he 100 MW had been produced al 230 V at the power plant then the current would be /"=P/V= HtW1230V=4.35 x 10'A. A wireofsufficienl size tocany this current would be proportionatly heavy and expensive. A diagram ofa typical A.c. power transmission system is shown in Fig. 2.1.7. Notice that til<' bigh voltages used in !he transmission lines. Line losses are due to I'R (Joule heat) losses of the power lines themselves. Although metal wires are used. there is still appreciable resistance, particularly over long distances. For example, heavy ahuniniwn wire has a resistance ofabont 0.3 n per kilometre. Aluminium has almost, ifnot completely, replaced copper in long distance transmission lines because of its lightness, streilgtb and cost. An important point to notice is that the (I'R) Joule heating losses depends on the square of me current and hence our aim would be to keep current minimum so as to keep joule heating losses to be minimum. Therefore, bigh voltages at low currents would be preferable for transmission of power over long distances. Long distaaee Traasmissioa of Elec:trical Power' [n Ihe largest modem power stations, electricity is generated al about 25 k V (50 Hz) and stepped up in !he transformer 10 275 kV or 400 kV for transmission over long.distances. The polential difference is subsequently reduced in sub-stations by o!her transformers for distribution 10 local users at suitable potential difference: 33 kV for heavy industries. 11 kV for light industry and 220 V1230 V lor homes, schools, shops, farms etc. (Fig. 21.7).

21.5.3 Problem of Low Voltage and Load Shading
(a) Low Voltagn: For normal operation ofany electrical device proper voltage is essential. If the voltage supplied by !he suppliers is less then !he desired Voltage, WIl say that the problem oflow voltage bas been developed. In tact low voltage is not hannful to the appliance a.the high voltages. However. due to low voltage almost me appliance will not work properly. .,,, overcome the low voltage problem one can use voltage stabilizers. If the low voltage is with in !he range ofthe stabilizer, you will get constanl voltage. You can use CVT (constant. voltage transformers) also to get COnstant voltage.

At this stage of learning you are aware of the fact that the Earth completes its rotation about its own axis in 24 hours. Conclusion 1s inescapable that a certain type of osc11latory motion can be represented by an expression containing sine or COSine of an angle or by a combination of such expressions. Remember that a motion which repeats itSelf In equal intervals of time is periodic and if it is also to and fro over the srune path it is oscillatory. from its· mean position can be represented by the equation : y = asln6 " (22.S PERIODIC MOTION You would have observed a pendulum dock and noticed. However. We shall lirst consider simple harmoniC motion (abbreviated as SHM). Thus.lrt)'here are two classes of periodic motion . We shall see that the diSplacement from the equilibrium poSition of an oscillatory motion can be represented by expressions containing smt's and cosines of angles.
