**Question 1.**

In which direction conventional current and electronic current flow from a source of electricity ?

**Answer:**

Electronic current is always in opposite direction to conventional current.

- When both the bodies are positively charged and are in contact the body having more +ve charge is at higher potential conventional current from A to B + 100 > + 70 from higher potential to lover potential.

∴ Electronic current from B to A.

- When both A and b negative charge conventional current: from higher potential (—70) to lower potential (—100) i.e. from B to A electronic current: from A to B.

- When A has +ve charge of 100 units and B has —ve charge of 70 units Conventional Current: from A to B Higher potential to lover potential a electronic current from b to A.

A cell of e.m.f 1.5 V, records a p.d. of 1.35 V, when connected lo an external resistance R, such that current flowing through circuit is 0.75 A. Calculate the value of R and internal resistance of cell

**Answer:
**

**Question 2.**

**Question 1.**

A cell of e.m.f 1.8 V is connected to an external resistance of 2 Ω, when p.d. recorded at the ends of resistance is 1.6 V. Calculate the internal resistance of the cell.

**Answer:**

I = V/R

**Question 2.**

Study ttitel circuit diagram in Fig. 8.44, and hence, calculate the internal resistance of cel

**Question 1. Class-10 Goyal Brothers Electric**

A cell, when connected to an external resistance of 4.5 Ω shows a p.d of 1.35 V. If 4.5 Ω resistance is replaced by 2.5Ω resistance the p.d drops to 1.25 V. Calculate:

**(a)** em.f.,

**(b)** internal resistance of the cell

**Answer:**

Let ‘E’ be the e.m.f and ‘r’ the internal resistance

Case(l) r = R [e-v]/v

**Question 2.**

Study the figures carefully and hence calculate the value of E and r.
