1 A charge Q is uniformly spread over a disc of radius R, made from a nonconducting material. This disc is now rotated about its geometrical axis with frequency
f. Find the magnetic field generated at the center of the disc.
2 Q amount of electric charge is uniformly distributed on a ring of radius r. A sphere
of radius r is drawn in such a way that the center of the sphere lies on the surface of
the ring. Calculate the electric flux associated with the surface of the sphere.
3 A thin layer of 0.001 cm of copper is to be deposited on a plate of copper of 10cm 2

4 A capacitor of 4pF value is charged to 50V. The above capacitor is then connected in
paralled to a 2 pF capacitor. Calculate the total energy of the above system. The
second capacitor is not charged prior to its connection with the 4 pF capacitor. Ignore
the energy loss in the above process.
5 Copper wire of 0.2 mm diameter is connected to iron wire of 5.0 mm diameter. The

11 1 and 2 of two materials are 610-4-1 and -510-4 -1. For the first material, the
resistivity 20 = 210-8 m. A new material has to be prepared by the mixture of these
two materials such that it resistivity does not change with temperature. What should
be the value of 20 of the second material? Take reference temperature = 20. Assume
that resistivity of the mixture is equal to the sum of resistivity of the two materials.
12 Copper wire is used in the wiring of the house. This wire is normally of 12 gauge.

be equal, they will start melting in the same time interval.
17 The resistance of an ammeter is 0.01. The ammeter shows 4A current where it is
connected with the battery. The current is reduced to three A when a 1.5 resistor is
connected in series. Calculate the emf of the battery and its internal resistance.
18 Two rings X and Y are placed in such a way that their axes are along X and the Y
axes respectively and centers of both the rings are at the origin. Both the rings have
the same radii of 3.14cm. If the current through the ringX is 0.4A and through the
ringY is 0.3A, find the intensity of the resultant magnetic field at the origin.
