Class – 12 Physics (Alternating Current)

1. 80{tex}\Omega {/tex}
Explanation: VR = (1.20 V) cos(2500 rad/s)t
{tex}C = 5\mu F = 5 \times {10^{ – 6}}F{/tex}
Capacitive reactance
{tex}{X_C} = {1 \over {\omega C}} = {1 \over {2500 \times 5 \times {{10}^{ – 6}}}} = 80\Omega {/tex}
1. equal to natural frequency of LCR system
Explanation: for maximum current in LCR series circuit impedance Z will be minimum
{tex}i = \frac{E}{Z}{/tex}
{tex}Z = \sqrt {{R^2} + {{({X_L} – {X_C})}^2}} {/tex}
impedance Z will be minimum when {tex}{X_L} = {X_C}{/tex}
hence
{tex}\omega L = \frac{1}{{\omega C}}{/tex}
{tex}\omega = \frac{1}{{\sqrt {LC} }}{/tex}
this is equal to natural frequency of LCR system
1. 146.0
Explanation: {tex}R = 115\Omega {/tex}
{tex}C = 1.25\mu F = 1.25 \times {10^{ – 6}}F{/tex}
{tex}L = 4.5mH = 4.5 \times {10^{ – 3}}H{/tex}
resonant angular frequency
{tex}{\omega _0} = {1 \over {\sqrt {LC} }} = {1 \over {\sqrt {4.5 \times {{10}^{ – 3}} \times 1.25 \times {{10}^{ – 6}}} }} = {1 \over {7.5 \times {{10}^{ – 5}}}}{/tex}
given that the angular frequency of the ac source {tex}\omega = 2{\omega _0} = {2 \over {7.5 \times {{10}^{ – 5}}}} = 26666.6rad/s{/tex}
impedance
{tex}Z = \sqrt {{R^2} + {{\left( {\omega L – \frac{1}{{\omega C}}} \right)}^2}} {/tex}
{tex}= \sqrt {{{115}^2} + {{\left[ {(26666.6 \times 4.5 \times {{10}^{ – 3}}) – \left( {\frac{1}{{26666.6 \times 1.25 \times {{10}^{ – 6}}}}} \right)} \right]}^2}} {/tex}
{tex}Z = 146\Omega {/tex}
1. Less resistance
Explanation: capacitive reactance
{tex}{X_C} = \frac{1}{{\omega C}} = \frac{1}{{2\pi fC}}{/tex}
{tex}{X_C}\propto \frac{1}{C}{/tex}
hence, for high frequency capacitor offers less resistance.
1. Vrms = 0.707 Vo
Explanation: Average value of V2 over a complete cycle is given by{tex}{\bar V^2} = \frac{1}{T}\int_0^T {{V^2}dt}{/tex}
{tex}V = {V_o}\sin \omega t{/tex}
{tex}T = \frac{{2\pi }}{\omega }{/tex}
{tex}{\bar V^2} = \frac{\omega }{{2\pi }}\int_0^{2\pi /\omega } {{V_o}^2{{\sin }^2}\omega tdt = }{/tex} {tex}\frac{\omega }{{2\pi }}{V_o}^2\int_0^{2\pi /\omega } {\frac{{\left( {1 – \cos 2\omega t} \right)}}{2}dt}{/tex}
{tex}{\bar V^2} = \frac{\omega }{{2\pi }}\frac{{{V_o}^2}}{2}\left[ {t – \frac{{\sin 2\omega t}}{{2\omega }}} \right]_0^{2\pi /\omega }{/tex} {tex} = \frac{\omega }{{2\pi }}\frac{{{V_o}^2}}{2}\left( {\frac{{2\pi }}{\omega }} \right){/tex}
{tex}{\bar V^2} = \frac{{V_0^2}}{2}{/tex}
The root-mean-square value of the alternating voltage is given by
{tex}{V_{rms}} = \sqrt {{{\bar V}^2}} = \frac{{{V_o}}}{{\sqrt 2 }}{/tex}
Vrms = 0.707 V0
1. Heat produced by DC is H = I2RT ….(i)
Heat produced by AC is
{tex}H = I _ { V } ^ { 2 } R T \quad \text { or } \quad H = \left( \frac { I _ { 0 } } { \sqrt { 2 } } \right) ^ { 2 } R T{/tex} ….(ii)Where IV = I0/{tex}\sqrt2{/tex} = rms value of the AC current
From Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get
{tex}I ^ { 2 } R T = \frac { I _ { 0 } ^ { 2 } R T } { 2 } \text { or } I = I _ { 0 } / \sqrt { 2 }{/tex}
where I stands for DC and I0 is the peak value of AC current.
2. It is defined as the value of Alternating Current (AC) over a complete cycle which would generate same amount of heat in a given resistor that is generated by steady current in the same resistor and in the same time during a complete cycle. It is also called virtual value or effective value of AC.
Let the peak value of the current be I0
{tex}\therefore \;\;{I_{rms}} = \frac{{{I_0}}}{{\sqrt 2 }} \Rightarrow {I_{rms}} = \frac{{{I_0}}}{{\sqrt 2 }}{/tex}
Where, I0 peak value of AC.
3. The current in an AC circuit is said to be Wattless Current when the average power consumed in such circuit corresponds to Zero.Such current is also called as Idle Current.
4. Given, L = 50mH = {tex}50 \times {10^{ – 3}}H{/tex}
{tex}C = 80\mu F = 80 \times {10^{ – 6}}F{/tex}
{tex}R = 40\Omega, V = 200V{/tex}

1. In the L-C-R, the resonant angular frequency when XL= XC
{tex}\omega _ { 0 } = \frac { 1 } { \sqrt { L C } } = \frac { 1 } { \sqrt { 50 \times 10 ^ { – 3 } \times 80 \times 10 ^ { – 6 } } } = 500 \mathrm { rad } / \mathrm { s }{/tex}
{tex}\omega = 2 \pi v \Rightarrow v = \frac { \omega } { 2 \pi }{/tex}
{tex}\Rightarrow \quad v = \frac { 500 } { 2 \pi } = \frac { 250 } { \pi } = 79.61 \approx 80 \mathrm { Hz }{/tex}
2. Quality factor, {tex}Q = \frac { \omega _ { 0 } L } { R } = \frac { 500 \times 50 \times 10 ^ { – 3 } } { 40 } = 0.625{/tex}
5. Transformation ratio
{tex} \Rightarrow k = \frac{{{N_s}}}{{{N_p}}}{/tex}
Since {tex}{N_s} = 100 \times {N_p}{/tex}
Thus {tex}k = \frac{{100{N_p}}}{{{N_p}}} = 100{/tex}

1. Power factor, {tex}\cos \phi = \frac{R}{Z}{/tex} or Z = R [For power factor unity {tex}\cos \theta = 1{/tex}] {tex}\therefore {X_C} = {X_L}{/tex} or {tex}\frac{1}{{2\pi f\;C}} = 2\pi f\;L{/tex}
or {tex}C = \frac{1}{{4{\pi ^2}{f^2}L}} = \frac{1}{{4 \times 9.87 \times {{(50)}^2} \times 200 \times {{10}^{ – 3}}}}{/tex}
{tex} = 5 \times {10^{ – 5}}F{/tex}
or {tex}C = 50\mu F{/tex}
2. Q-factor {tex} = \frac{1}{R}\sqrt {\frac{L}{C}} {/tex}
{tex}Q = \frac{1}{{10}}\sqrt {\frac{{200 \times {{10}^{ – 3}}}}{{5 \times {{10}^{ – 5}}}}} = 6.32{/tex}
1. {tex}V = V _ { 0 } \sin \omega t{/tex}
From diagram, by parallelogram law of vector addition, VR + VC = V
Using pythagorean theorem, We get
{tex}V ^ { 2 } = V _ { R } ^ { 2 } + V _ { C } ^ { 2 } = ( I R ) ^ { 2 } + \left( I X _ { C } \right) ^ { 2 } \Rightarrow V ^ { 2 } = I ^ { 2 } \left( R ^ { 2 } + X _ { C } ^ { 2 } \right){/tex}, XC and R being the capacitive reactance and resistance of the resistor respectively.
{tex}\therefore I = V / \sqrt { R ^ { 2 } + X _ { C } ^ { 2 } } = V / Z{/tex} (say) where, Z = {tex}\sqrt { R ^ { 2 } + X _ { C } ^ { 2 } } = \sqrt { R ^ { 2 } + 1 / \omega ^ { 2 } C ^ { 2 } }{/tex}
Z = impedance of the circuit.
2. The phase angle {tex}\phi {/tex} between resultant voltage and current is given by
{tex}\tan \phi = \frac { V _ { C } } { V _ { R } } = \frac { I X _ { C } } { I R } = \frac { X _ { C } } { R } = \frac { 1 / \omega C } { R } = \frac { 1 } { \omega R C }{/tex} {tex}\Rightarrow{/tex} {tex}\phi ={/tex} tan-1({tex}\frac {1}{\omega RC}{/tex})
1. The average power dissipated,
{tex}\overline { P } = \left( i ^ { 2 } R \right) = \left( i _ { m } ^ { 2 } R \sin ^ { 2 } \omega t \right) = i _ { m } ^ { 2 } R \left( \sin ^ { 2 } \omega t \right){/tex}
{tex}\because \sin ^ { 2 } \omega t = \frac { 1 } { 2 } ( a – \cos 2 \omega t ){/tex}
{tex}\therefore \left( {{{\sin }^2}\omega t} \right) = \frac{1}{2}[1 – (\cos 2\omega \theta )] = \frac{1}{2}(\because \cos 2\omega t = 0){/tex}
{tex}\therefore \quad \overline { P } = \frac { 1 } { 2 } i _ { m } ^ { 2 } R{/tex}
2. ) Power of the bulb P = 100 W
6. voltage, V = 220 V
{tex}R = \frac { V ^ { 2 } } { P } = \frac { ( 220 ) ^ { 2 } } { 100 } = 484 \Omega{/tex}

1. Total initial energy
{tex}E = \frac{{Q_0^2}}{{2C}} = \frac{{{{10}^{ – 2}} \times {{10}^{ – 2}}}}{{2 \times 50 \times {{10}^{ – 6}}}}J{/tex} = 1 J
This energy shall remain conserved in the absence of resistance.
2. Angular frequency, {tex}\omega = \frac{1}{{\sqrt {LC} }}{/tex}
{tex} = \frac{1}{{{{(20 \times {{10}^{ – 3}} \times 50 \times {{10}^{ – 6}})}^{1/2}}}}Hz{/tex}
{tex}v = \frac{{{{10}^3}}}{{2\pi }}Hz = 159Hz{/tex}
3. {tex}Q = {Q_0}\cos \omega t{/tex}
Or {tex}Q = {Q_0}\cos \frac{{2\pi }}{T}t{/tex}, where {tex}T = \frac{1}{v} = \frac{1}{{159}}s{/tex} = 6.3 ms
Energy stored is completely electrical at t = 0, T/2, 3T/2 . . .
Electrical energy is zero i.e. energy stored is completely magnetic at
{tex}t = \frac{T}{4},\frac{{3T}}{4},\frac{{5T}}{4},…{/tex}
4. At {tex}t = \frac{T}{8},\frac{{3T}}{8},\frac{{5T}}{8},…{/tex} {tex}\left[ {\because Q = {Q_0}\cos \frac{{\omega T}}{8} = {Q_0}\cos \frac{\pi }{4} = \frac{{{Q_0}}}{{\sqrt 2 }}} \right]{/tex}
{tex}\therefore{/tex} Electrical energy {tex} = \frac{{{Q^2}}}{{2C}} = \frac{1}{2}\frac{{Q_0^2}}{{2C}}{/tex}, which is half of the total energy.
5. R damps out the LC oscillations eventually. The whole of the initial energy 1.0 J is eventually dissipated as heat.
7. Here, L = 5.0 H, {tex}R = 40\Omega {/tex}
{tex}C = 80\mu F = 80 \times {10^{ – 6}}F{/tex}
Ev = 230 volt
{tex}{E_0} = \sqrt 0 {E_v} = \sqrt 2 \times 230V{/tex}

1. Resonance angular frequency,
{tex}\omega r = \frac{1}{{\sqrt {LC} }}{/tex}
{tex} = \frac{1}{{\sqrt {5 \times 80 \times {{10}^{ – 6}}} }} = \frac{1}{{2 \times {{10}^{ – 7}}}}{/tex} = 50 rad/sec = 50 rad/sec.
2. Impedance {tex}Z = \sqrt {{R^2} + {{\left( {\omega L – \frac{1}{{\omega C}}} \right)}^2}} {/tex}
At resonance, {tex}\omega L = \frac{1}{{\omega C}}{/tex}
{tex}Z = \sqrt {{R^2}} = R = 40\Omega {/tex}
Amplitude of current at resonating frequency
{tex}I_0=\frac{E_0}{z}=\frac{\sqrt2 \times 230}{40} {/tex} = 8.13 amp
{tex}I_v=\frac{I_0}{\sqrt2}=\frac{8.13}{\sqrt2}=5.75 amp{/tex}
3. Potential drop across L
