(ii) How many electrons flow through the wire in the given time?

### Ques-02:

1020 electrons each having a charge of 1.6 x 10-19 C pass from a point A towards another point B in 0.1 s.

(i) Calculate the current in ampere.

(ii) What is the direction of current?

### Ques-03:

If 2.25 x 1020 electrons pass through a wire in one minute, find the magnitude of the current flowing through the wire.

(PSEB 2002)

### Ques-04:

How many electrons per second flow through the cross-section of a conductor so that the conductor carries a current of 1 ampere?

OR

Show that one ampere is equivalent to a flow of 6.25 x 1018 elementary charges per second.

(CBSE D 1992)

### Ques-05:

How many electrons pass through a wire in 1 minute if the current passing through the wire is 300 mA?

(PSEB 2002)

### Ques-06:

Find the rate of electrons passing through a wire if the wire carries a current of 3.2 A.

### Ques-07:

A point charge q moves in a circle of radius R at a constant speed v. What will be the current associated with this uniform circular motion?

### Ques-08:

In a hydrogen atom, an electron revolves around the nucleus in a circular orbit at the rate of 1015 revolutions per second. Calculate the equivalent current.

(ROORKEE 1984)

### Ques-09:

In an atom, an electron revolves around the nucleus in a circular orbit at the rate of 1015 revolutions per second. Calculate the equivalent current.

### Ques-10:

The amount of charge passing through cross-section of a wire is q(t) = 5t2 + 3t + 1. Find the value of current at t = 5 s.

### Ques-11:

Charge flowing through a cross-section is given as function of time as q = 2t2 + 3. Find the value of current at t = 2 s.

### Ques-12:

The current through a wire depends on time as I = Io + αt where Io = 10 A and α = 4 As-1. Find the charge that flows across a section of the wire in 10 seconds.

### Ques-13:

The current through a wire depends on time as I = 4 + 3t + 2t2. Find the charge that flows across a section of the wire in 6 seconds.

### Ques-14:

A current flowing through a wire depends on time as I = 3t2 + 2t + 5. Find the charge flowing through the cross-section of the wire in time from t = 0 to t = 2 s.

### Ques-15:

The following figure shows a plot of current I through the cross-section of a wire over a time interval of 10 s. Find the amount of charge that flows through the wire during this time period.

(CBSE 2015 C)

### Ques-16:

The current I in a circuit varies with time t as per the relation I = 3 + 2t. Find constant current which would send the charge equivalent to the time interval t = 0 to t = 4 s.
