## A spring is held vertically downward and a current is passed through it . Then the length of the spring :

A spring is held vertically downward and a current is passed through it . Then the length of the spring :

A . increases B. decreases C . does not change D the spring oscillates

Answer:

Since the adjacent turns are carrying currents in the same direction (just like two parallel wires) there will be attraction between the turns and therefore the length of the spring

tends to decrease.

## Problems from Electricity

- The parallel plates of an air filled capacitor with area of area 1.1 x 10^8 m^2 . What must be the width of the plate be if the Capacitance is 1 Farad?
- Four capacitor each of 2microfarad are connected in such a way that total capacitance is also 2microfarad. Show what combination gives this value. Also try to illustrate the diagram.

Answer

1.Using the formula:

and substituting , C= 1 F, A = 1.1 x 10^{8}, = 8.8 x 10^{-12},

we get , d =9.68×10^{-4} metres

## Relative motion – Problem

A driving instructor tells his student to maintain a 3 second separation between the students car and the car ahead.
