This torque tends to rotate the dipole in the direction of the electric field.
Suppose an external torque τext is applied just to neutralise the torque (τ) and to rotate the dipole from θ0 to θ1 without angular acceleration then, the amount of work done by the external torque.

Write three experimental observations of photoelectric effect.
The results of the experimental studies of photoelectric effect are sometimes called as the laws of photoelectric effect.
1. The photoelectric effect is instantaneous, i.e., photoelectric current flows as soon as the radiation falls on the cathode (about 10-9s).
2. The strength of photo electric current is directly proportional to the intensity of incident radiation (Fig. a).
3. For a given photo emissive surface there is a minimum frequency for the incident radiation below which there is no photoelectric emission. This minimum frequency is called threshold frequency υ0 (Fig. b).
4. Above threshold frequency, the maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectrons increases linearly with the frequency of the incident radiation (Fig. b).
5. As the applied potential is increased the photoelectric current increases and attains saturation. On reversing the potential, photo current decreases and becomes zero at a particular negative potential and is called stopping potential Vs (Fig. c).

- An electron can jump from higher energy orbit to lower energy orbit. In this process a photon is emitted whose energy is equal to the energy difference between the initial and final states.
Explain ‘Conduction band’ ‘Valance band’ and ‘Energy gap’, in semiconductors.
Conduction band : The band lying next to the valence band which may be partially filled at room temperature but completely empty at OL is called conduction bond. Electrons in this band contribute to the conduction process. Hence the conductivity of a solid depends on the availability of electrons in the conduction band. Electrons in thi s band is called conduction electrons.
Valance band : The highest energy band which is completely or partially filled at absolute zero (OK) is called valance band. Electrons in this band are called valance electrons. They are loosely bound to the nucleus. They are easily detachable from the nucleus.
Energy gap : The separation between the top of the valance band and bottom of the conduction band is called energy gap. This is so called because electrons cannot possess these energy levels in the given solid.

State Gauss’s law. Derive an expression for electric intensity at a point outside the uniformly charged shell.
Consider a charged thin spherical shell of radius R. Let the charge +q distribute uniformely on the outer surface of the conductor, so that the surface charge density be ‘σ’
Case 1: Outside the spherical shell:
Let ‘P’ be a point outside the conductor at a distance r from the centre of the spherical shell.
With ‘r ’ as the radius imagine a Gaussian surface. The electric field at every point on the Gaussian surface is same and radial (θ = 0).
The flux through the Gaussian surface of radius r is
Φ = E.S cosθ S – Surface
area of the Gaussian surface of radius r.
∴ Φ = E . (4πr2)………………(1)
From Gauss’s Law Φ = ……………….(2)
Equating (1) and (2), we get
– Unit radial vector
Case 2: On the surface of the spherical shell:
The electric field on the surface of the conductor r = R, then
Case 3: Inside the spherical shell: Since the charges enclosed by the Gaussian surface of radius (r ‘) is zero, the electric field inside the spherical shell is zero.

Consider two cells of emf and ε1, ε2, with internal resistances and r1 and r2 connected in parallel. Let I1 and I2 be the currents through the cell ε1 and ε2 respectively.
then I = I1 + I2 ………………….(1)

Potential differences across ε2
Substituting in eqn (1)
Derive an expression for the intensity of magnetic field at any point on the axis of a circular current loop.
Consider a circular current loop of radius R carrying steady current I. Let ‘P’ be a point on the axis at a distance x from the centre of the loop.
To find the magnetic field at ‘P’ due to the current loop, consider a small current element
AB (I. ) on the loop.
The magnetic field at ‘P’ due to the current element AB is given by Biot Savart’s Law
Since the current element (I. ) and the
displacement vector are perpendicular to each other, then θ = 90° (sin 90 = 1)
The direction of dB is perpendicular to the plane of I dl and .
Let dB make an angle a with y axis then resolving dB,
We get dBx = dB sinα and dBy = dB cosα This perpendicular component of magnetic field(dBy) will concel because of the equal and opposite perpendicular component from diametrically opposite current element.
∴ Resultant magnetic field at P is
V. Answer any two of the following questions: ( 2 × 5 = 10 )
Derive an expression for the impedance of a series LCR circuit, when an AC voltage is applied to it.
Consider a resistance R, an inductor of self inductance L and a capacitor of capacitance C connected in series across an AC source. The applied voltage is given by,
v = v0sinωt ……(1)
Where, v is the instantaneous value, v is the peak value and ω = 2πf, f being the frequency of AC.
If i be the instantaneous current at time t, the instantaneous voltages across R, L and C are respectively iR, iXL and iXC. The vector sum of the voltage amplitudes across R, L, C equals the amplitude v0 of the voltage applied.
Let vR, vL and VC be the voltage amplitudes .across R, L and C respectively and I0 the current amplitude. Then vR = I0R is in phase with i0.
vL = i0XL = I0(ωL) leads i0 by 90°
vc = i0Xc = i0 () lags behind io by 90°
The current in a pure resistor is phase with the voltage, whereas the current in a pure inductor lags the voltage by rad. The current in a pure capacitor leads the voltage by rad.
For vL > vc , phase angle Φ between the voltage and the current is positive.
From the right angled triangle OAP,
OP2 = OA2 + AP2 = OA2 + OB2 (Q AP= OB)
v2 = v2R + (VL – Vc)2 = (iR)2 + (iXL – iXc)2
=i2 (R 2+ (XL – Xc)2)
Where Z is the impedance of the circuit. Phase angle between v & i.

Lens maker’s formula.
Let r1 and r2 be radii of curvature of the thin lens.
Let O be the point object at a distance u from the pole of the first curved surface of the lens. Real image is formed at 1’, at a distance v’ from the pole P1 This image is formed in the denser medium.
We know that from the refraction formula,
Where n1 is the refractive index of rarer medium and that of the denser medium (n2 > n1). For the second surface, real image at I’ will serve as a virtual object and the distance is taken as -ve. The object space is he lens medium for refraction through the second curved surface. Final image is formed in air at I and at a distance of V and P2.
∴The term on the L.H.S. can be replaced by 1/f where f is the focal length of lens.
The equation (4) is called the lens maker’s formula.
Explain the working of a n-p-n transistor in CE mode as an amplifier.
The circuit diagram of a CE amplifier using npn transistor is as shown in figure.
The input (base emitter) circuit is forward biased and the output (collector emitter) circuit is reverse biased.
When the ac input signal to be amplified is fed to the base-emitter circuit. The output voltage Vo varies in accordance with the relation, Vo = VCE = VCC – ICRC. These variations in the collector voltage VCE appears as amplified output.
During the positive half cycle of ac input signal, the forward bias of emitter base junction increases. Due to this base current IB increases and hence collector current IC increases. As a result of this ICRC increases. Therefore the output voltage Vo is negative. This indicates that the positive half cycle of input ac signal voltage is amplified through negative half cycle.
During the negatice half cycle of ac input signal, the forward bias of emitter base junction decreases. Due to this base current IB decreases and hence collector current Ic decreases. As a result of this ICRC decreases. Therefore the output voltage Vo is positive. This indicates that the negative half cycle of input ac signal voltage is amplified through positive half cycle.
Thus, the weak input signal is amplified and output signal is out of phase with the input signal by 180°.
