S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. moving-iron ammeter full torque is given as: T_c=1/2 I^2 dL/dӨ
∴dL/dӨ=(2×240×10^(-6))/10^2 =4.8 µH/radian

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. S.W. G= Standard wire gauge

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. overlapping of conduction and valence band occurs in conductors only.

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. The pressure coil of an energy meter is highly inductive while for wattmeter it is highly resistive.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. In DC compound Motor:
The shunt-winding is made up of wires of small cross-sections and has high resistance and the series winding will carry a large armature current and therefore it is made of wires of large cross-section and has a few turns only.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Energy stored in magnetic field
=1/2 LI²
=2.43×10^(-3) J

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. S= 4% Nr =750 rpm
∴ Ns=Nr/((1-S))
=781.25 rpm
But Ns = (120 f)/P
∴ (781.25×4)/120=f
⇒ f = 26 Hz

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Flux in two coils aid each other inductor of the combination

So, the mutual inductance is 250 mH.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. from the B-H curve, the value of magnetising field requires to reduce residual magnetism to zero is called coercivity of the material.
RETENTIVITY: The value of the intensity of magnetisation of a material when the magnetising field is reduced to zero is called retentivity.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. i=im sin⁡(2πf)t
