Consider a capacitor-charging circuit. Let Q1 be the charge given to the capacitor in a time interval of 10 ms and Q2 be the charge given in the next time interval of 10 ms. Let 10 µC charge be deposited in a time interval J, and the next 10 µC charge is deposited in the next time interval t2 1.   Q1 > Q2 , t1 > t2 2.   Q1 > Q2 , t1 < t2 3.   Q1 < Q2 , t1 > t2 4.   Q1 < Q2 ,  t1 < t2

A capacitor C1 of capacitance 1 µF and a capacitor C2 of capacitance 2 µF are separately charged by a common battery for a long time. The two capacitors are then separately discharged through equal resistors. Both the discharge circuits are connected at t = 0.

(a) The current in each of the two discharging circuits is zero at t = 0.
(b) The currents in the two discharging circuits at t = 0 are equal but not zero.
(c) The currents in the two discharging circuits at t = 0 are unequal.
(d) C1 loses 50% of its initial charge sooner than C2 loses 50% of its initial charge

Choose the correct option

1. (a) only

2. (b), (d)

3. (c), (d)

4. (a), (d)

Given below are two statements: one is labelled as Assertion (A) and the other is labelled as Reason (R):

A battery of emf E is used to charge an uncharged capacitor C, through a resistance R. The time constant of the circuit is $${\tau = RC}$$.
 Assertion (A): When the voltage across the capacitor reaches 50% of its maximum value, the rate of heat dissipation in the resistor falls to $$\frac14$$ of its initial value. Reason (R): The voltage across the capacitor is proportional to the charge on its plates, while the rate of flow of charge is the current (i). This current (i) falls exponentially with a time constant T, and it falls to 50% of its initial value when the capacitor is 50% charged. The rate of heat dissipation, being proportional to i2, falls to $$\frac14$$ of its initial value.

In the light of the above statements choose the correct answer from the options given below:

 1 Both (A) and (R) are true and (R) is the correct explanation of (A). 2 Both (A) and (R) are true but (R) is not the correct explanation of (A). 3 (A) is true but (R) is false. 4 (A) is false but (R) is true.
