Unformatted text preview: 1 Solve the following 8 problems : 1.(2 marks) Four identical capacitors, each of capacitance 1 μ F, are connected to a source with emf ε as shown in the figure. Calculate the equivalent capacitance of the network. C eq = 3C/5 2.(5 marks) Two air-filled capacitors, C 1 = 20 μ F and C 2 = 10 μ F, are connected to a 60 volt battery as shown in the figure. After the capacitors are fully charged, capacitor C 2 is filled with a dielectric material (dielectric constant K= 4). Calculate the change in energy stored in C 1 , due to the addition of dielectric in C 2 . Before: Ceq = C 1 C 2 /(C 1 +C 2 ) = 6.67 μ F Q = C eq V = 400 μ C U 1 = 0.5 Q 2 /C 1 = 4 mJ After : Ceq = 13.33 μ F Q = C eq V = 800 μ C U 1 = 0.5 Q 2 /C 1 = 16 mJ Δ U= 12 mJ C 1 C 2 ε C C C C 60 V 2 3.(2 marks) A copper wire carries a current of 2 A at 20 ° C. The temperature coefficient of resistance for Copper is α =0.004 ° C-1 . Find the current in the wire when its temperature increases to 100 ° C (Assume that the voltage supplied to the wire remains the same)....
