(b) (i) Coulomb measures the quantity of electric charge. (ii) Kilowatt hour measures the electric energy. 3

4 8. Explain the meaning of statement the power of an appliance is 100 W. Ans. For the statement 100 W, it implies that a given appliance is using power at the rate of 100 Joules/second. 9. State the SI unit of : (i) electric power, and (ii) electric energy. Ans. (i) SI unit of electric power is watt. (ii) SI unit of electric energy is Joule. 10. (i) Define household unit of electricity. (ii) What is the voltage of electricity that is generally supplied to a house? Ans. (i) The unit of house hold electric energy is kilowatt hour. It is defined as the energy consumed when a power of 1000 W (1 kw) is drawn for one hour or the product of power drawn in watts and time in hours is 1000 Wh. (ii) The voltage of electricity that is generally supplied to a house is 0 V. 11. (a) What is the function of fuse? (b) What requirement is kept in mind while choosing material of fuse? (c) Out of the three fuses available, with current rating 5A, 10A and 13 A, which one should be used in a circuit containing geyser rated 3 kw 50 V? Give one reason. Ans. (a) Fuse is a device which melts and breaks electric circuit when circuit is overloaded or gets short-circuited. (b) (i) The material of fuse should have low melting point, around 00 C. (ii) The material of fuse should have high resistance. 4

5 (c) Current in geyser, I = P = 3000 W = 1 A. V 50 V Thus, required fuse should be of 13 A. It is because 5A and 10A fuses will melt, as the current in circuit is higher than the fuses can tolerate. 1. (a) Rewrite the following sentence, using correct alternative. A fuse is connected in parallel / series to earth /neutral /live wire. (b) Which of the two cables, one 5 A and other 15 A, will be thicker? Give one reason for your answer. Ans. (a) A fuse is connected in series to live wire. (b) 15 A cable is thicker than 5A cable. It is because thicker the cable, less is its resistance, and hence more the current it can tolerate, without getting hot. 13. (a) Where is a fuse wire placed in an electric circuit? (b) Name the material suitable for making fuse wire. Ans. (a) Fuse is placed in series in live wire, before the switch of an electric appliance.

6 Ans. (a) Connecting the metallic body of an electric appliance with a thick wire of copper, whose other end is burried deep in earth and is surrounded by the common salt and charcoal is called earthing. (b) The metallic body of electric appliance is earthed. (c) The metallic bodies of electrical appliances are earthed. It is because in case of short circuit, the metal body gets connected with live wire. This in turn gives electric shock, if metal body of appliance is touched. During short circuit the rise in the magnitude of current overloads circuit and hence fuse in that circuit melts. On melting of fuse, the short-circuited appliance will not receive any current and hence user is protected from electrical shock. (d) Refer to answer 14 (a). (e) Refer to answer 14 (c). 15. (a) What is the function of a switch in an electric appliance? (b) Why is switch placed in the live wire? Ans. (a) An electric switch is used to open or close an electric circuit. (b) When switch is in the live wire, no current will enter or leave the appliance, when switch is in off position. Thus, the user will not get electric shock. 16. (a) Why is household wiring done in parallel? Give at least two reasons. (b) What are the disadvantages of wiring a household circuit in series? Ans.(a) (i) In parallel circuit, e.m.f. is a constant quantity. Thus, every appliance works at the same p.d. (ii) In parallel circuit, each appliance can be switched on or off independently. 6

7 (b) (i) In series circuit, p.d. is not a constant quantity. Thus, different appliances will be at different potential differences. (ii) In series circuit, each appliance cannot be switched on / off independently. 17. Draw the circuit diagram for the distribution of power from poles to main switch and label each part clearly. State the function of each part. Ans. (i) Pole fuse protects the kwh meter during overloading. (ii) kwh meter records the energy consumed. (iii) Mains fuse protects the household circuit during overloading. (iv) Double pole main switch is used to cut off complete electric supply to household circuit during emergency. 18. Name two systems of distribution of power in a house. Give the advantages and disadvantages of these systems. Ans. (a) Tree system, (b) Ring system. Advantages of tree system : The power coming from main circuit is distributed into smaller circuits, with independent fuses. In case of short circuit in some particular sub-circuit, only fuse of that circuit melts. Disadvantages of tree system : 7

8 1. As all sub-circuits originate from main circuit at the main switch, therefore, longer length of wiring is required.. When a fuse in a particular sub-circuit melts, all appliances in that sub-circuit are disconnected. Advantages of ring system : 1. Every appliance has its own fuse. Therefore, during short circuit, only defective appliance is switched off.. As a single ring feeds the whole house, therefore, length of wiring used is considerably small. 19. Draw a circuit diagram, showing two electric bulbs, a three pin socket and a fan connected in a household circuit. Clearly show the position of fuses; switches and earth. Ans. 8

9 0. (a) Draw a circuit diagram for the distribution of current in ring system. Show a heater connected in this system. (b) State two advantages of ring system over tree system. Ans. (a) (b) Refer to answer of question (a) State the colour of : (i) live wire, (ii) neutral wire (iii) earth wire according to international connections. (b) State the positions of : (i) earth pin, (ii) neutral wire, (iii) neutral in an electric plug. (c) What is a three core flexible wire? Why short circuit takes place, if more current is made to flow in this wire? (d) How is the difficulty mentioned in (c) overcome? Ans. (a) Old system New system Live wire Red Brown Neutral wire Black Light Blue Earth wire Green Yellow or Green (b) (i) Earth pin is connected to green wire. It is on the top of plug. (ii) Live pin is on right side of plug. It is connected to brown (or red) wire. (iii) Neutral pin is on left side of plug. It is connected to black (or blue) wire. 9

10 (c) An electric cable having three insulated wires, running parallel to each other is called three core insulated wire. When more current flows through three core wire, the insulation over them melts. Thus, as the live wire comes in contact with neutral or earth wire, a short circuit takes place. (d) A fuse is placed in the live wire. The fuse melts, as soon as circuit gets overloaded. Thus, three core wire does not burn.. Why is the earth terminal in a plug made : (i) thicker? (ii) longer as compared to live or neutral terminals? Ans.(i) The earth pin being thicker can never enter in live or neutral sockets, and hence, electrical appliance can get connected only in proper electrical position. (ii) The earth pin is made longer, so that it gets connected to earth first, before the live or neutral wire. This ensures that user will not get electric shock as the fuse will melt, if the given electric appliance is short circuited. 3. (i) What do you understand by the term earthing with reference to electrical appliances? (ii) Describe briefly, why earthing is essential. (iii) The flexible leads, used for connecting electrical appliances to mains are made up of three separate wires coloured, red; black and green. Which wire is meant for earthing?

There are three pins in an electric plug. Answer the following questions : (i) How can you identify the earth pin? (ii) In which of the three connecting wires should an electric switch be placed? (iii) Explain why an electric switch should not be touched with wet hands. Ans. (i) Earth pin is longer and thicker as compared to other pins. (ii) Live wire. (iii) It is because, natural water generally contains minerals, which makes it conducting. Thus, if moisture on hands comes in contact with terminals of switch, it forms conducting path and hence, one receives a severe shock. 7. (a) Name four devices which make use of only heating effect of current. (b) Name two devices which in addition to heat, produce light energy. Ans.(a) (i) Electric heater (ii) Electric oven (iii) Electric iron (iv) Electric geyser (b) (i) Electric bulb (ii) Arc lamp. 11

12 8. Two bulbs of 100 W and 5 W are connected in series to 00 V - A.C. mains. It is found that the 5 W bulb glows brightly. Explain the observation. Ans. Resistance of 100W bulb, R100 V = = = 400 Ω. P 100 Resistance of 5 W bulb, R5 V = = = 1600 Ω. P 5 As both the bulbs are connected in series, therefore the magnitude of current flowing in each bulb is the same. The heat produced and hence light emitted by a bulb is given by the expression I R.t. As resistance of 5W bulb is more than 100W bulb, therefore, it will produce more light. 9. Write whether the following statements are true or false. (i) A wire with blue sleeve connects to live pin of a plug. (ii) A wire with brown sleeve connects to neutral pin of a plug. (iii) A wire with yellow sleeve connects to earth pin of a plug. Ans.(i) False, (ii) False, (iii) True. 30. Fill in the blanks to complete the sentences.

(ii) Green; blue ; brown (iii) Energy; power. (iv) 5 amp 00 volts 1 hour 1000 (v) Melting point; lead and tin; fuse; current; burnt. 31. Explain the following : (i) Wires used as leads of an electric oven are thicker than those used in the leads of a table lamp. (ii) The wires leading current to an electric bulb are thicker, while its filament is made of thin wire. (iii) The heating element of a room-heater becomes red hot, while lead wires remain cold. Ans. (i) The magnitude of current in case of oven is very high, as compared to a table lamp. As heat produced in cables is given by the expression I Rt, therefore in 13

14 order to lower the value of heat produced in cables the R should be as small as possible. Thus, the heater cables are made thicker, as thicker the cable lesser the resistance. (ii) Heat produced is directly proportional to resistance. As the heat is to be produced in the filament and not in the lead wires, therefore resistance of lead wires is kept less by making them thick, whereas resistance of filament is increased by making it thin. (iii) The magnitude of current is the same in the lead wires as well as heating element. As the resistance of heating element is very high as compared to lead wires, therefore heat produced in heating element is very large, as compared to lead wires. Thus, heating element gets red hot, but not the lead wires. 3. (a) Name the material used for making fuse wire. State two properties of material of fuse wire which make it suitable for use. (b) What is meant by earthing of an electrical appliance? How does earth offer protection? Ans. (a) Fusible alloy containing 50% lead and 50% tin is used as material for fuse wire. Properties of fuse. 1. It has a low melting point, around 00 C.. It offers more electrical resistance than connecting wires. (b) Refer to answers 14(a) and 14(c). 14

15 33. Why is the fuse wire fitted in a porcelain casing? Ans. Porcelain is (i) bad conductor of electricity, (ii) fire resistant. Thus, when fuse wire melts due to overloading or short circuiting, the circuit does not catch fire. 34. For earthing an electrical appliance, one has to remove paint from the metal body of the appliance, where electrical contact is made. Explain the reason. Ans. Paint is a bad conductor of electricity. Thus, in order to have a proper electrical contact between the metal body and the earth wire, we have to remove the nonconducting paint from that point. 35. Explain the meaning of the statement, the current rating of a fuse is 5A. Ans. From the above statement, it implies that fuse wire can withstand a current strength of 5A. If the current rating exceeds 5A, then circuit will get over loaded and the fuse wire will melt. 15
