Comprehension based question
Electrical resistance of certain materials, know as superconductors, changes abruptly from a nonzero value to zero as their temperature is lowered below a critical temperature Tc(0). An interseting property of supercondeuctors is that their critical temperature becomes smaller than Tc(0)if they are placed in a magnetic field, i.e., the critical temperature TC(B) is a function of the magnetic field strength B. The dependence of TC(B) on B is shown in the figure.

35.In the graphs below, the resistance R of a super­conductor is shown as a function of its tempera­ture T for two different magnetic fields B1 (solid line) and B2 (dashed line). If B2 is large than B1, which of the following graphs shows the correct variation of R with T in these fields ?
Ans.(a) Under magnetic field, the critical temperatures decreases as given in the data therefore the super conductors become conductors for higher mag­netic field at low temperature.

36.A superconductor has Tc(0) = 100 K. When a magnetic field of 7.5 Tesla is applied, its Tc de­creases to 75 K. For this material one can defi­nitely say that when.
a)B = 5 Tesla, Tc (B) = 80 K
b)B = 5 Tesla, 75 K < Tc (B) < 100 K
c)B = 10 Tesla, 75 K < Tc (B) < 100 K
d)B = 10 Tesla, Tc (B) = 70 K

Ans.(b) When ‘B’ is increased, TC(B) decreased where solid becomes super conductor. If B = 7.5 tesla given that ‘Tc(0) decreased from 100 K to 75 K. If ‘B’ is less than 7.5 then TC(B) stightly increases, it should be in between 75 K and 100 K so if B = 5 Tesla, 75 K < TC(B) < 100 K

JEE Advanced College And Rank Predictor

Before the results are out, candidates can check their scores based on the answer key released. Here candidates can check their probable ranks that they might score in the JEE advanced 2019. Once the scores are calculated using the answer key, candidates can use various tools available on Google for checking their ranks. They need to add suitable information like score, category, etc to check their rank.

Along with the rank, students can also check their list of probable colleges. There is a list of colleges that students can get admission into and these are probable colleges for that candidate where the chances are high. To use the college predictor, candidates need to fill the same information again. They will have to enter their preferred branches, ranks, category, and much more information. The list of probable colleges that student might get into will appear on the screen. This will also allow candidates to be prepared for the counseling process in which they are filling the course details.

JEE Advanced Cutoff

The JEE advanced cutoff determines the minimum marks that a candidate needs to get to secure their admission in the participating institutions. The cutoff ranks of the students will be determined and also released during the counseling process. Furthermore, qualifying marks for the examination will also be released by the concerning authority. All the students and candidates who are eligible and meet the qualifying criteria for cutoff marks will be listed out in the rank list. They will also be marked eligible for the seat allotment and counseling process. Thus, JEE advanced will also act as a screening process for the main admissions.

Counseling And Seat Allotment Process for JEE Advanced

The seat allotment process for JEE advanced will not be conducted by IIT Roorkee. Rather it will be conducted by JoSAA along with counseling. Thus, the conducting authority for the same is joint seat allocation authority. All the candidates that have qualified in JEE advanced, need to register through JoSAA and participate in this counseling process. The selection of preferred IITs along with the courses is already done. This allotment will be done through the ranking of the candidates along with their availability of seats and preference. The application form for JoSAA will be available in the second week of June tentatively.

JEE Main Physics Electro Magnetic Induction Previous Year Questions with Solutions

For JEE Main other Engineering Entrance Exam Preparation,  JEE Main Physics Electro Magnetic Induction Previous Year Questions with Solutions is given below.

MuItipIe Choice with ONE correct answer

1.A metal rod moves at a constant velocity in a direction perpendicular to its length. A constant uniform magnetic field exists in space in a direction perpendicular to the rod as well as its velocity. Select the correct statement(s) from the following           [1985-2 marks]
a)The entire rod is at same electric potential.
b)There is an electric field in the rod
c)The electric potential is highest at the centre of the rod and increases towards its ends.
d)The electric potential is lowest at the centre of the rod and decreases towards its ends   
Ans.(b) Let the metal rod AB move parallel to x-axis. Let the uniform magnetic field point in positive z- direction. The free electrons of the metal rod will experience magnetic force towards B. So there will be excess of electrons on B- end and shortage of electrons on A-end. The end A becomes posi­tively charged and the end B becomes negatively charged. An electric field is therefore setup in the metal rod. Option (b) is correct.

2.A thin circular ring of area A is held perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field of induction B. A small cut is made in the ring and a galvanometer is connected across the ends such that the total resistance of the circuit is R. When the ring is suddenly squeezed to zero ‘area, the charge flowing through the galvanometer is                                    [1995]

3.A thin semicircular conducting ring of radius R is falling with its plane vertical in horizontal magnetic induction g , At the position MNQ the speed of the ring is v, and the potential difference developed across the ring is
Ans.(d) At the position MNQ, the ring is at the point of moving out of the magnetic field. Its speed of fall is v. Due to fall, the flux associated with the ring changes. An emf is therefore induced in the ring.

4.Two identical circular loops of metal wire are lyingon a table without touching each other, Loop-A carries a current which increases with time. In response, the loop-B. [JEE ’99 2 Marks]
a)remains stationary
b)is attracted by the loop-A
c)is repelled by the loop-A
d)rotates about its CM, with CM fixed
Ans.(c)When the current in loop A increases, its mag­netic field in the surrounding space increases. The flux linked with loop B therefore increases. An emf is induced in B. Under Lenz’s law, the current flows in B opposite to that in A. Due to opposite directions of currents in A and B, loop B is re­pelled by loop A.

8.A metallic square loop ABCD is moving in its own plane with velocity v in a uniform magnetic field perpendicular to its plane as shown in the figure. An electric field is induced. [2001-2 marks]

Ans.(a)When current flows in one coil, the flux asso­ciated with the other coil depends upon its area receiving the flux. This is maximum in case (a) and so their mutual inductance will be maximum in situation (a).

Ans.(b)Current is induced in the short-circuited coil due to the imposed time-varying magentic field.


13. A small bar magnet is being slowly inserted with constant velocity inside a solenoid as shown in figure. Which graph best represents the relationship between emf induced with time?     [2004- 2 M]
Ans.(c) As the bar magnet is inserted inside a solenoid, flux associated with the solenoid increases. Induced emf is negative.

59.A uniformly wound solenoidal coil of self inductance 1,8 xl0-4 henry and resistance 6 ohm is broken up into two identical coils. These identical coils are then connected in parallel a cross a 15 volt battery of negligible resistance. The time constant for the current in the circuit is second and the steady state current through the battery is……………..ampere.            [1989-2 marks]

60.In a straight conducting wire, a constant current is flowing from left to right due to a source of emf. When the source is switched off, the direction of the induced current in the wire will be………………………………….[1993-1 mark]
Ans.When the source is switched off, current flowing from left to right in the conducting wire decreases to zero. According to Lenz’s law’, induced currrent will oppose the cause. Consequently the direction of induced current in the wire will be from left to right.
