of a parallel plate capacitor (ii) Calculate the capacitance of a parallel capacitor whose plates are 10cm by

10cm separated by an air gap of 5mm

c) A hollow spherical conductor of diameter 21.4cm carrying a charge of 6.9 x 10-10c is raised to a potential of 50v.

Find the permittivity of the surrounding medium

(d) (i) Show that the effective capacitance, C, of two capacitances C1 and C2, connected in series is given by

1 2

=

1 + 2

e(i) A 20F capacitor is charged to 40V and they connected across an unchanged 60F capacitor. Calculate the

potential difference across the 60F capacitor. (ii) Find the change in energy. (iii) Account for the energy change

2 a) Define

(i) amplitude of a stationary wave (1)

(ii) State two characteristics of a stationary wave (2)

b) A progressive wave y=asin (t-kx) is reflected at a barrier to interfere with the incoming wave. Show that the

resultant wave is a stationary one. (4)

(c) A vibrating tuning fork of frequency 340HZ is held over a long glass tube full of water which is allowed to run out

slowly. Given that the velocity of sound is340ms-1 and the diameter of the tube is 4cm. calculate the end correction

C and the length of the air column giving the first two positions of resonance. (6)

(d) Explain why open pipes are preferred to closed pipes as musical instruments (1)

(e) Two open pipes of length 92cm and 93cm are found to give beat frequency of 3.0Hz when each is sounding in its

fundamental note. If the end errors are 1.5cm and 1.8 cm respectively, calculate the

vacuum at a distance , d metres apart, Derive an expression for the force per meter between the wires.

(c). (i) Sketch the magnetic field pattern on the plane containing the center, due to a current flowing in a circular coil

(ii) Write an expression for magnetic flux density, B at the center of a circular coil of N turns each of

radius r and carrying a current I

find the magnetic flux density at the center of the coil

(4)

d(i) Explain the term back emf in a.d.c. motor (2)

(ii) Show how the back emf in a motor is related to the efficiency of the motor (4)

(ii) State the phase of V relative to that of I (1)

(iii) If the coil is a pure inductor , explain why it is non dissipative (3)

(c). A sinusoidal voltage of rms value 20V is applied across a 70 F capacitor. If the frequency of the a.c. supply is

50HZ; calculate;

(i) The rms value of the current through the capacitor

(ii) The maximum charge on the capacitor

(d) With the aid of a diagram describe how a thermocouple meter works \

(ii) With aid of a ray diagram, show that the radius of curvature

of a convex mirror is twice the focal length of the mirror. (04 marks)

(b) Describe the action of a sextant. (05marks)

(c) Explain why parabolic reflectors are used in search lights instead of

Concave. (03 marks)

(d) Describe how you can determine the focal length of a concave mirror, using

a search pin. (05 marks)

e) State the characteristics of images formed in plane mirrors. (02mks)
