Section – C

Answer any 4 questions. Each question carries 3 score. [4 × 3 = 12]

Question 11.
Classify the energy from the following sources as green energy and brown energy. Solar cells, atomic reactor, tidal energy, hydroelectric power, diesel energies, windmills, thermal power.

 Green energy Brown energy Solar cells Atomic reactors Tidal energy Diesel engines Hydro electric power Thermal power station Windmills Question 12.
Observe the circuit diagram given below and answer the following questions. a) Which are the instruments labelled as P and Q in the diagram?
b) If you replace the copper wire AB with a Nichrome wire of same length and area of cross section.
i) What change would you notice in the reading on the device Q? Why?
ii) What will happen to the heat produced in the conductor? Explain with references to Joule’s Law.
a) P – Rheostat
Q – Ammeter

b) i) Reading will decrease. Due to high resistance current decreases
ii) Because of Nichrome’s high resistance the current in the circuit will decrease.
According to Joules law H = I²Rt, decrease in the amount of current will reduce the amount of heat.

b) Draw the diagram of dispersion taking place in a water droplet during the formation of a rainbow.
a) Morning.
b)  Question 14.
Observe the picture and answer the questions. a) What happens to the air column around the paper core when the voice coil vibrates?
b) Is the voice coil vibrates if d.c. reaches the voice coil?
c) What is the working principle?
d) Mention the energy change taking place.
a) Air column also vibrates. As a result sound is produced.
b) No. Because there is no flux change occurs.
c) Motor principle
d) Electrical energy sound energy

Question 15.
