A cylindrical conductor of length l and uniform area of cross section A has resistance R. Another conductor of length 2l and resistance R of the same material has area of cross section

[A]. A/2
[B]. 3A/2
[C]. 2A

In a science quiz competition, Neha are asked a question where she had to choose the statement which was/were correct?

[A]. The property of a conductor due to which it opposes the flow of current through it is called resistance.
[B]. The resistance of a conductor depends on length, thickness, nature of material and temperature of the conductor.
[C]. 1 ohm is the resistance of a conductor such that when a potential difference of 1 volt is applied to its ends, a current of 1 ampere flows through it.
[D]. All the above.

Priya is writing some statements, choose the incorrect statement and help him:

[A]. Those substance which have very low electrical resistance are called good conductors.
[B]. Those substances which have comparatively high electrical resistance, are called resistors.
[C]. Those substances which have infinitely high electrical resistance are called insulators.
[D]. The heating element of electric iron is made of nichrome wire which is an insulator.


Read the following sentences carefully, and choose the incorrect one:

[A]. Alloy of nickel, chromium, manganese and iron having a resistivity of about 60 times more than that of copper.
[B]. The heating elements of electrical heating appliances such as electric iron and toaster are made of an alloy rather than a pure metal.
[C]. Nichrome undergoes oxidation very easily at a high temperature.
[D]. Nichrome alloy is used for making the heating elements of electrical appliances.

An electric fuse works on the:

[A]. Chemical effect of current
[B]. Magnetic effect of current
[C]. Lighting effect of current
[D]. Heating effect of current


How much energy does a 100 W electric bulb transfer in 1 minute?

[A]. 100 J
[B]. 600 J
[C]. 3600 J

The resistance of a wire of length 300 m and cross-section area 1.0 mm2 made of material of resistivity 1.0 × 10−7 Ωm is:

[A]. 2 Ω
[B]. 3 Ω
[C]. 20 Ω
[D]. 30 Ω
What is meant by an electric circuit?

A continuous and closed path of an electric current is called an electric circuit.

What is fuse wire and how does it work?

The fuse is placed in series with the device. It consists of a piece of wire made of a metal or an alloy of appropriate melting point, for example aluminium, copper, iron, lead etc. If a current larger than the specified value flows through the circuit, the temperature of the fuse wire increases. This melts the fuse wire and breaks the circuit.

What do you know about a resistor?

A conductor having some appreciable resistance is called a resistor.

What is variable resistance or rheostat?

A component used to regulate current without changing the voltage source is called variable resistance.
