(ii) Complete the reaction : [2]
3 He2 + 2H1→ 4He2 +…….+Energy
(e) State two ways to increase the speed of rotation of a DC motor. [2]

Answers :4

(a) Resistors of 5 Ω and 4 Ω are in series, therefore, their net resistance is Rs = 5 + 4 = 9 Ω.
Now, this 9 Cl and 3 Ω are in parallel, hence net resistance RP = \frac{9 \times 3}{9+3} = \frac { 18 }{ 12 } = 1.5 Ω.
Now, this is in series with the 8 Cl resistor, hence net resistance of the circuit is RT = 8 + 1.5 = 9. 5

(b) (i) No, specific heat capacity does not remain the same when it changes from solid to liquid.
(ii) Let us take the example of water.
Specific heat capacity of water = 4.2 J kg-1 K-1
and specific heat capacity of ice = 2.1 J kg-1K-1

(c) x < y. This is because coil B has more number of turns.

(d) (i) Because this occurs at a very high temperature.
(ii) 3He2 + 2H1 → 4He2 + 1H1 + Energy
