Essay Question▾

Describe in Detail

Explain the term ‘mutual inductance’ between two coils carrying current. Describe a method of determining mutual inductance between two coils of wire with relevant theory. (Paper-1) (Section-B)


  • By changing magnetic field around turns of an inductor, an emf induced in it and this emf is also induced in the same circuit by changing in current, this effect is called Self-induction (L) .

  • When a coil in which emf induced situated in the region of the same magnetic field, the induced emf is called Mutual induction. If two or more coils a

Describe in Detail

On the basis of uncertainty principle calculate the size of Hydrogen atom.

(Paper-2) (Section - A)


  • From a hydrogen atom, it is not possible to predict exact the position of the electron or the momentum of the electron. Every time the electron is at somewhere but it has amplitude to in different places so there is a probability of it being found in different places.
  • These places cannot all be at the nucleus; we shall suppose there is a spread i

Starting with Newton’s second law of motion, establish D’ Alembert’s principle and discuss its significance? (Paper-1) (Section –A)


  • Let consider a system described by generalized coordinates . And this system undergoes a certain displacement in configuration space. If for this displacement it does not take any time and it is consistent with the constraints on the system. This kind of displacement is called virtual.

  • In virtual displacement there is no act
