Question 25.
How zener diode is used as a voltage regulator? Explain.
Zener diode as a voltage regulator

The circuit connections are made as shown in the figure. The Zener diode is reverse biased. If the unregulated input voltage increases, the current through Rs and Zener diode also increases. This increases the voltage drop across Rs without any change in the voltage across the Zener diode. This is because in the breakdown region Zener voltage remains constant even though the current through Zener diode changes.

Similarly, if the input voltage decreases, the current through Rs and Zener also decreases. So, any increase or decrease of input results in increase or decrease of voltage drop across Rs without change in voltage across Zener diode. Hence it acts as a voltage regulator.

Question 27.
Using Gauss’s law in electrostatics, obtain the expression for electric field due to a uniformly charged thin spherical shell at a point
i. outside the shell and
ii. inside the shell

Let σ be the uniform surface charge density of a thin spherical shell of radius R Field outside the shell.
Consider a point P outside the shell at a distance r from the centre of the shell. Imagine a gaussian sphere of radius ‘r’ The electric flux at P due to surface  S is
∆φ= $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{E}} \cdot \overrightarrow{\Delta \mathrm{S}}$$ = ES COSθ=ES {COS θ=1}
Total electric flux due to the sphere is
φ = E4πr……….(1)

Question 28.
Derive σ = $$\frac{\mathrm{ne}^{2} \tau}{\mathrm{m}}$$ Where the symbols have their usual meaning.

Consider conductor of length x, area of cross section A.
Vd-drift speed of free electrons, in a time t, let all the electrons travel a distance x = Vd ∆ t.
Electric current I = Q /t = neAvd
The acceleration acquired by the free electrons is given by a = $$\frac{-\mathrm{eE}}{\mathrm{m}}$$
where m= mass of the electron
If τ = relaxation time then velocity

vd = $$\frac{-e E}{m} \tau$$

Current density J = $$\frac{1}{\mathrm{A}}$$, J = σE therefore

σ = $$\frac{n e^{2} \tau}{m}$$

Question 29.
Obtain expression for the force between two infinitely long straight parallel conductros carrying current. Hence define ‘ampere’ the SI unit of electric current.

Consider two infinitely long straight conductors a & b carrying currents Ia & Ib respectively are separated by a distance ‘d’. The conductor ‘a’ produces the same magnetic field Ba at all points along the conductor ‘b’.

Ba = $$=\frac{\mu_{0} I_{a}}{2 \pi d}$$   …………( 1 )

The conductor ‘b’ experiences a force Fba

Fba = BaLIb = $$=\frac{\mu_{0} I_{a} I_{b} L}{2 \pi d}$$

where L= length of the conductor

Similarly one can show that Fba = -Fab
(A) ampere- The currents flowing through two infinitely long parallel conductors separated by 1m distance is 1 ampere if they experience a force of 2 X 10–7N per unit length in air or vacum.

V. Answer any two of the following questions ( 2 × 5 = 10 )

Question 30.
Derive the expression for the fringe width of interference pattern in Young’s double-slip experiment.

S1 & S2 are two coherent sources. GG| – screen at a distance D from the sources.
Let d = distance between the slits (two sources).
P = a point at a distance from the middle of the screen where a bright fringe is formed.
For constructive interference path difference = nλ
S2P – S1P = nλ where n = 0,1,2,3…….
From the diagram

(S2P )2 – (S1P )2=2xd
(S2P – S1P)(S2P + S1P) = 2xd
S2P ≅ S1P ≅ OP = D
S2P – S1P = $$\frac{\mathrm{xd}}{\mathrm{D}}$$ = nλ
Xn = $$\frac{\mathrm{n} \lambda \mathrm{D}}{2}$$
Where n = 0, +1, ±2, ± 3 for bright fringes
±1, ±2, ±3 for dark fringes
Since the finges are equally spaced the distance between two consecutive bright or consecutive dark fringes gives finge width.

β = $$\frac{\lambda \mathrm{D}}{\mathrm{d}}$$

Question 31.
Describe with suitable block diagra ms, action of pn-junction diode under forward and reverse bias conditions. Also draw I-V characteristics.

PN Junction diode under forward bias.
When the diode is forward biased as shown in the figure the depletion region width decreases and the barrier height is reduced. The electrons from n-side cross the depletion region and reach p-side also holes from p-side cross the junction and reach the n-side. A concentration gradient is developed at the junction boundary. Due to this the motion of charged carriers on either side gives rise to current. The total diode forward current is sum of hole diffusion current and conventional current due to electron diffusion.

PN Junction diode under reverse bias

When the diode is reverse biased the depletion region width increases and the barrier height is increased. This supresses the flow of electrons from n-side to p-side and holes from p-side to n-side. Thus, diffusion current decreases. The conventional current is due to drift of the minority charge carriers which is of the order of micro amperes. The current under reverse bias is voltage independent up to a critical reverse bias voltage known as breakdown voltage.

The I-V characteristics are as shown.
