SECTION-I
What do you mean by electric flux? State and prove Gaus's Law, hence calculate the electric field due to infinite sheet of charge.        (12)
Two large metal plates of area 1.0m2 face each other. They are 5.0cm apart and have equal but opposite charges on their inner surfaces. If the magnitude E of electric field between the two plates is 55 N/c, what is the magnitude of charge on each plate? Neglect edge effect.                                                                                                           (8)
Q.2: (a) What is alternating current and its basic advantage. Discuss RLC circuit.
(b) An oscillating LC circuit consisting of a 1.0 nF capacitor and a 3.0 mH coil has maximum voltage of 3.0V. (i) What is maximum charge on the capacitor? (ii) what is the maximum current through circuit?  (8)
SECTION-II
Q.3: (a) What is operational amplifier? Describe the use of an operational amplifier as an inverting amplifier. Find the expression for its gain.                                                        (12)
(b) The current flowing into the base of a transistor is 100MA, find the collector current lc, the emitter current Ir and the ratio 1c4E it the value of current gain 13 is 10.     (8)
Q.4: (a) What do you mean by Octal numbers and Hexadecimal
numbers? Explain with example. What is BCD?                   (10)
