CBSE TEST PAPER-02
CLASS - XII PHYSICS (Unit – Current Electricity)

Ans 1. i = 5 + 3 – 2 – 7 + 8
i = 16 - 9
i = 7A

Ans 2. Since =
R + r
E

= Smaller the slope larger is the resistance and since resistance increases with the
increases in temperature. Slope is small for T2

If V is doubled, drift velocity gets halved.
(2) If l is doubled, drift velocity gets halved.
(3) Since V of is independent of D, drift velocity remains unchanged.

Ans 6. If is defined as the average velocity with which free electrons gets drifted in a
direction opposite to that of electric field
If m is the mass of the electron and e be the charge of electron

Then on application of the electric field E, acceleration acquired by the electron is

eE

first eg of motion u + a t v =
since average initial velocity
u = O V= υ d

where e is the change on electron
E os the electric field intensity
τ is the relaxation time
m is the mass of electron.

Ans 7 (a) When resistance R is increased, the current through potentiometer wire AB will
decrease, hence potential difference across A will decrease, so balance point shifts
towards B.
(b) When resistance S is increased terminal potential difference of the battery will
decrease, so balance point will be obtained at smaller length and hence shifts
towards A.

(c) When cell P is replaced by another cell whose emf is lower than that of cell Q, the
P.D. across AB will be less than that of emfQ so balance point will not be obtained.

Ans 8.
(a) Close the Key (k) and jockey is moved along the wire till a certain point B is
reached where galvanometer shows no deflection. Then the bridge is said to be
balanced.
If Rcm is the resistance per can length of the wire then.

(b) When the bridge is balanced, there will be no current in key, therefore constant
current flows through the galvanometer and hence no change in deflection on
pressing the key.
