Capacitance, voltage and Potential difference

the capacity of parallel plate condenser is 5 micro Faraday. When a glass plate is placed between the plates of the conductor  its potential become 1/8th of the original value. The value of dielectric constant will be
(A)1.6
(B)5
(C)8
(D)40

 

Answer:

The charge remains same

Use Cm=KCo
and
V reduced to 1/8 means capacitance increased 8 times since Q=CV
So, the answer is evident

Potential Difference

Pawan Asked

“What is meant by potential difference?”

Answer:

“Potential Difference between two points is the difference in Potential between the two points and is equal to the work done per unit charge ion carrying a positive test charge from one point to another against the electric field and without any acceleration”

de Broglie Wavelength

Alpha particle and a proton are accelerated from rest by the same potential. Find the ratio of their de- broglie wavelength

(Asked by Amritha)

 Answer:

Charge of alpha particle = 2e

Mass of alpha particle = 4 u

Charge of proton = e

mass of proton = u

The energy acquired by proton when accelerated through a pd of V,

E=eV

The momentum acquired by proton=

The de Broglie wavelength is given by 

Therefore, de Broglie wavelength of Proton,

Similarly,

Difference between emf and pd

ananthesh asked:

“can you please explain about emf and PD of a cell?”

Answer:

EMF stands for electromotive force.

EMF of a cell is equal to the potential difference between the two terminals of a cell when no current is drawn from it.

Pd (potential difference) between any two points on a circuit is defined as the work done per unit charge in carrying a positive test charge from one point to the other. With reference to a cell, the potential difference between the terminals of a cell when a current is drawn from it is called terminal voltage.
