solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Ferromagnetic materials exhibit a long-range ordering phenomenon at the atomic level which causes the unpaired electron spins to line up parallel with each other in a region called a domain.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Pentavalent impurities Impurity atoms with 5 valence electrons produce n-type semiconductors by contributing extra electrons. Trivalent impurities Impurity atoms with 3 valence electrons produce p-type semiconductors by producing a “hole” or electron deficiency.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. The relationship between tension and sag is dependent on the loading conditions and temperature variations. For instance, the tension increases when temperature decreases.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Reluctivity is reciprocal of permeability.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. The emf generated,
E=PϕNZ/(60 A)
P= 4, ϕ =0.01 Weber
A= P =4 (for lap)
N= 1200 rpm, Z = 1520
∴ Emf, E=(4×0.01×1200×1520)/(60×4)
E=304 Volts

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Interpoles are used to reduce the effect of armature reaction and also to nullify the effect of induced emf, generated in the coil undergoing commutation. Due to this emf, the sparking occurs and interpoles help in reducing the sparking occurring at the commutator.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Ohm’s law is I=V/R or I ∝ V.
∴ The relation between V & I is linear (if 1/R is a constant).

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. Conservator is placed at the top of the transformer. It controls the expansion and contraction of the transformer oil on heating and cooling process respectively.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Wave wound for high voltage & low current whereas LAP winding used for high current and low voltage.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. The arc utilized in electric arc welding is a low voltage and high current discharge type.
Arc welding is a type of welding process using an electric arc to create heat to melt and join metals. A power supply creates an electric arc between a consumable or non-consumable electrode and the base material using either direct (DC) or alternating (AC) currents.
