Multiple Choice questions on Electric current resistance and resistivity for Jee Main and Advanced






Assertion and Reason Type Question
Following question consider two statements one labelled as statement-1 and another as statement-2. Study both statements and mark your answer using the codes given blow.
  1. Both Statement-1 and Statement-2 are true and Statement-2 is correct explanation of Statement-1.
  2.  Both Statement-1 and Statement-2 are true and Statement-2 is not a correct explanation of Statement-1.
  3. Statement-1 is true but statement-2 is false.
  4. Statement-1 is false and statement-2 is true.
Question-1
Statement-1 Free electrons in conductor are always in state of continuous random motion.
Statement-2 The random motion of free electrons is due to thermal energy of the conductor.
Question-2
Statement-1 Drift velocity of electrons in a conductor increase on increasing the temperature of the conductor.
Statement-2 On increasing the temperature of a conductor, resistivity of the conductor increases.
Question-3
Statement-1 For metals relaxation time for electrons decreases with increase in temperature.
Statement-2 With the increase in temperature, number of collision per unit time that electrons made with lattice ion also increases.
