1) State Joule’s law of heating. list two special characteristics of a heating element wire.

An electronic iron consumed energy at the rate of 880 W when heating is at the maximum rate and 440 W when the heating is at the minimum rate. The applied voltage is 220 V. Calculate the current and resistance in each case

2) Copper and aluminium wires are usually employed for electricity transmission Why?

3) Obtain the expression for the heat developed in a resistor by the passage of electric current through it. 220 J of heat is produced each second in a 8 ? resistor. Find the potential difference across the resistor.

(i) What will be the length of this wire to make the resistance of 12 ??

(ii) How much will be the resistance of another copper wire of same length but half the diameter? 9) A wire of uniform cross – section and length l has a resistance of 4 ?. The wire is cut into four equal pieces. each piece is then stretched to length ‘l’. Thereafter, the four wires are joined in parallel. Calculate the net resistance

10) Calculate the electrical energy produced in 5 minutes when a current of 2 A is sent through a conductor by a potential difference of 500 volts. 11) An electric heater draws a current of 10 A from a 220 V supply. What is the cost of using the heater 5 hours per day for 30 days if the cost of 1 unit is Rs. 2.50?
