Answer :

(i) We can get a total resistance of 4\(\Omega \) by connecting the 2\(\Omega \) resistance in series with the parallel combination of 3\(\Omega \) and 6\(\Omega \).

So, \(R=R_1+\frac{R_2R_3}{R_2+R_3}= 2+\frac{6×3}{6+3}=4\Omega \)

(ii) We can obtain a total resistance of 1\(\Omega \) by connecting resistors of 2\(\Omega \), 3\(\Omega \) and 6\(\Omega \) in parallel.

\(\frac{1}R=\frac{1}{R_1} +\frac{1}{R_2}+\frac{1}{R_3}=\frac{1}{2} +\frac{1}{3}+\frac{1}{6}\)

\(\frac{1}R=1 \Omega \)

or R=1 \(\Omega \)

- What does an electric circuit mean?
- Define the unit of current.
- Calculate the number of electrons constituting one coulomb of charge.
- Name a device that helps to maintain a potential difference across a conductor.
- What is meant by saying that the potential difference between two points is 1V?
- How much energy is given to each coulomb of charge passing through a 6 V battery?
- On what factors does the resistance of a conductor depend ?
- Will current flow more easily through a thick wire or a thin wire of the same material, when connected to the same source ? Why ?
- Let the resistance of an electrical component remain constant while the potential difference across the two ends of the component decreases to half of its former value. What change will occur in the current through it?
- Why are coils of electric toasters and electric irons are made of an-alloy rather than a pure metal ?
- Use the data in Table 12.2 (in NCERT Book on Page No. 207) to answer the following : (i) Which among iron and mercury is a better conductor ? (ii) Which material is the best conductor ?
- Draw a schematic diagram of a circuit consisting of a battery of three cells of 2 V each, a 5 \(\Omega \) resistor, an 8 \(\Omega \) resistor, and a 12\(\Omega \) resistor, and a plug key, all connected in series.
- Redraw the circuit of Question 1, putting in an ammeter to measure the current through the resistors and a voltmeter to measure the potential difference across the 12 \(\Omega \) resistor. What would be the readings in the ammeter and the voltmeter?
- Judge the equivalent resistance when the following are connected in parallel – (a) 1 \( \Omega \) and 106\( \Omega \), (b) 1\( \Omega \) and 103\( \Omega \), and 106\( \Omega \).
- An electric lamp of 100 \(\Omega \) , a toaster of resistance 50 \(\Omega \), and a water filter of resistance 500 \(\Omega \) are connected in parallel to a 220 V source. What is the resistance of an electric iron connected to the same source that takes as much current as all three appliances, and what is the current through it ?
- What are the advantages of connecting electrical devices in parallel with the battery instead of connecting them in series ?
- What is (i) the highest, (ii) the lowest total resistance that can be secured by combinations of four coils of resistance 4\(\Omega \) , 8\(\Omega \), 12\(\Omega \), 24\(\Omega \) ?
- Why does the cord of an electric heater not glow while the heating element does ?
- Compute the heat generated while transferring 96000 coulomb of charge in one hour through a potential difference of 50 V.
- What determines the rate at which energy is delivered by a current ?
- An electric motor takes 5 A from a 220 V line. Determine the power of the motor and the energy consumed in 2 h.
