SECTION II : Paragraph Type


This section contains 6 multiple choice questions relating to three paragraphs with two questions on each paragraph. Each question has four choices (A), (B), (C) and (D) out of which ONLY ONE is correct. Paragraph for Questions 9 and 10 The -decay process, discovered around 1900, is basically the decay of a neutron (n). In the laboratory, a proton (p) and an electron (e ) are observed as the decay products of the neutron. Therefore, considering the decay of a neutron as a two-body decay process, it was predicted theoretically that the kinetic energy of the electron should be a constant. But experimentally, it was observed that the electron kinetic energy has a continuous spectrum. Considering a three-body decay process, i.e. n p + e + ve , around 1930, Pauli explained the observed electron energy spectrum. Assuming the anti-neutrino (ve ) to be massless and possessing negligible energy, and the neutron to be at rest, momentum and energy conservation principles are applied. From this calculation, the maximum kinetic energy of the electron is 0.8 106 eV. The kinetic energy carried by the proton is only the recoil energy. 9. If the anti-neutrino had a mass of 3 eV/c2 (where c is the speed of light) instead of zero mass, what should be the range of the kinetic energy, K, of the electron? (A) 0 K 0.8 106 eV (B) 3.0 eV K 0.8 106 eV 6 (C) 3.0 eV K < 0.8 10 eV (D) 0 K < 0.8 106 eV 9. (D) Q = ( m)c2 6

IIT JEE 2012 Question Paper & Solution (Paper II) (7) Assuming antineutrino to be massless: Q1 mn (mp me ) c2 recoil energy of P+ + kinetic energy of e + energy carried by neutrino. Now suppose antineutrino had a mass as well KE of e + KE of recoiled P+ of i.e. K K e K p 0.8 106 ev 3eV Thus Ke is definitely less than 0.8 K p 0 since proton is massive 106 eV

Minimum energy is possible if momentum are carried away by P and antineutrino 10. What is the maximum energy of the anti-neutrino? (A) Zero (B) Much less than 0.8 106 eV (C) Nearly 0.8 106 eV (D) Much larger than 0.8 106 eV 10. (C) As per the situation in Q.9. If (K.Ee) = 0 All energy carried by antineutrino only (as proton share very less amount of energy because of its large inertia) Paragraph for Questions 11 and 12 The general motion of a rigid body can be considered to be a combination of (i) a motion of its centre of mass about an axis, and (ii) its motion about an instantaneous axis passing through the centre of mass. These axes need not be stationary. Consider, for example, a thin uniform disc welded (rigidly fixed) horizontally at its rim to a massless stick, as shown in the figure. When the disc-stick system is rotated about the origin on a horizontal frictionless plane with angular speed , the motion at any instant can be taken as a combination of (i) a rotation of the centre of mass of the disc about the z-axis, and (ii) a rotating of the disc through an instantaneous vertical axis passing through its centre of mass (as is seen from the changed orientation of points P and Q). Both these motions have the same angular speed in this case.

Now consider two similar systems as shown in the figure: Case (a) the disc with its face vertical and parallel to x-z plane; Case (b) the disc with its face making an angle of 45 with x-y plane and its horizontal diameter parallel to x-axis. In both the cases, the dis is welded at point P, and the systems are rotated with constant angular speed about the z-axis.

IIT JEE 2012 Question Paper & Solution (Paper II) (9) Paragraph for Questions 13 and 14 Most materials have the refractive index, n > 1. So, when a light ray from air enters a sin 1 n 2 naturally occurring material, then by Snells law, , it is understood that the sin 2 n1 refracted ray bends towards the normal. But it never emerges on the same side of the normal as the incident ray. According to electromagnetism, the refractive index of the medium is c given by the relation, n r r , where c is the speed of electromagnetic waves in v vacuum, v its speeds in the medium, r and r are the relative permittivity and permeability of the medium respectively. In normal materials, both r and r are positive, implying positive n for the medium. When both r and r are negative, one must choose the negative root of n. Such negative refractive index materials can now be artificially prepared and are called meta materials. They exhibit significantly different optical behavior, without violating any physical laws. Since n is negative, it results in a change in the direction of propagation of the refracted light. However, similar to normal materials, the frequency of light remains unchanged upon refraction even in meta materials. 13. Choose the correct statement. (A) The speed of light in the meta material is v = c|n| c (B) The speed of light in the meta material is v = |n| (C) The speed of light in the meta material is v = c. (D) The wavelength of the light in the meta material ( m) is given by m where air is the wavelength of the light in air 13.

T3 < T1 Option B is incorrect Work done is area under the curve, Clearly the area under the curve for isothermal process is greater. Option C is correct For an ideal gas, internal energy is a function of Temperature. Final temperature for adiabatic process is less than its initial temperature, while initial and final temperature for isothermal process is same. Hence, internal energy change for isothermal process is greater than internal energy change for adiabatic process ( Uiso = 0 and Uadia < 0) option D is correct.

60. For every integer n, let an and bn be real numbers. Let function f : IR a sin x, for x [2n, 2n 1] f(x) = n , for all integers n. bn cos x, for x (2n 1, 2n) If f is continuous, then which of the following hold(s) for all n? (A) a n 1 bn 1 0 (B) a n bn 1 (C) a n bn 1 1 (D) a n 1 bn 1 60. (B), (D) f is continuous on f(2n) = an + sin ( . 2n) = an At x = 2n Lt f (x) = Lt b n cos x
