## Chapter 7: Alternating Current

### NCERT solutions for Class 12 Physics Textbook Chapter 7 Alternating CurrentExercise [Page 266]

A 100 Ω resistor is connected to a 220 V, 50 Hz ac supply.

**(a)** What is the rms value of current in the circuit?

**(b)** What is the net power consumed over a full cycle?

The peak voltage of an ac supply is 300 V. What is the rms voltage?

The rms value of current in an ac circuit is 10 A. What is the peak current?

A 44 mH inductor is connected to 220 V, 50 Hz ac supply. Determine the rms value of the current in the circuit.

A 60 µF capacitor is connected to a 110 V, 60 Hz ac supply. Determine the rms value of the current in the circuit.

What is the net power absorbed by each circuit over a complete cycle. Explain your answer.

Obtain the resonant frequency ω_{r} of a series LCR circuit with L = 2.0 H, C = 32 µF and R = 10 Ω. What is the Q-value of this circuit?

A charged 30 µF capacitor is connected to a 27 mH inductor. What is the angular frequency of free oscillations of the circuit?

Suppose the initial charge on the capacitor is 6 mC. What is the total energy stored in the circuit initially? What is the total energy at later time?

A series LCR circuit with R = 20 Ω, L = 1.5 H and C = 35 µF is connected to a variable-frequency 200 V ac supply. When the frequency of the supply equals the natural frequency of the circuit, what is the average power transferred to the circuit in one complete cycle?

A radio can tune over the frequency range of a portion of MW broadcast band: (800 kHz to 1200 kHz). If its LC circuit has an effective inductance of 200 µH, what must be the range of its variable capacitor?

[**Hint:** For tuning, the natural frequency i.e., the frequency of free oscillations of the LC circuit should be equal to the frequency of the radio wave.]
