  • Question 14
    A student was asked to perform an experiment to study the force on a current carrying conductor in a magnetic field. He took a small aluminum rod AB, a strong horse shoe magnet, some connecting wires, a battery and a switch and connected them as shown. He observed that on passing current, the rod gets displaced. On reversing the direction of current, the direction of displacement also gets reversed. On the basis of your understanding of this phenomenon, answer the following questions:

    (a) Why does the rod get displaced on passing current through it ?

    (b) State the rule that determines the direction of the force on the  conductor AB.

    (c) (i) In the above experimented set up, when current is passed through the rod, it gets displaced towards the left.

    What will happen to the displacement if the polarity of the magnet and the direction of current both are reversed?

    (ii) Name any two devices that use current carrying conductors and magnetic field.


    Draw the pattern of magnetic field lines produced around a current carrying straight conductor held vertically on a horizontal cardboard. Indicate the direction of the field lines as well as the direction of current flowing through the conductor.


  • Question 15
    Mendel blended his knowledge of Science and mathematics to keep the count of the individuals exhibiting a particular trait in each generation. He observed a number of contrasting visible characters controlled in pea plants in a field. He conducted many experiments to arrive at the laws of inheritance. 

    (a) If only one pair of contrasting characters like tall and short plants is taken, plants obtained in F1 generation are not of medium height. Why?

    (b) Name the recessive traits in above case.

    (c) Mention the type of the new combinations of plants obtained in F2 progeny along with their ratio, if F1 progeny was allowed to self pollinate.


    If 1600 plants were obtained in F2 progeny, write the number of plants having traits:

    (i) Tall with round seeds
    (ii) Short with wrinkled seeds
    Write the conclusion of the above experiment. VIEW SOLUTION
