'Heavy water is often used as a moderator in thermal nuclear reactions'. Give reason.
Heavy water is used as a moderator because its mass is nearest to that of a neutron and it has
negligible chances for neutron absorption.

When the pure semiconductor S is heated, its resistance decreases. So the current in the circuit
increases. To keep the reading of ammeter (A) constant, the value of R has to be increased.

figure. The resistor R is connected to positive terminal of a 5 V battery.
26.
Ans.
Operation : (i) When both A and B are grounded, both D1 an D2 get forward biased and conduct.
Output Y will be 0 since it neutralized by 5 V battery sending the current in opposite direction.
(ii) When A is earthed (0) and B is connected to 5 V battery (1), D1 conducts and D2 does not
conduct. The output Y = 0.
(iii) When A is connected to 5 B (1) and B grounded (0), D 2 conducts and D1, does not, output Y
= 0.
(iv) when A and B are both at high (1) level, none of the diodes conduct. The output is equal to
the battery voltage of 5 V. i.e. Y = 1.

Principle: The input analog signal is first sampled and modulated using PCM which produces
discrete pulses and gives coded steam, of but (0’s and 1’s) representing the signal,
corresponding to this stream of bits, the optical beam from a source is modulated. This
modulated signal is propagated in medium called optical fibre. At the receiver, an optical detector
detects the signal which in turn, is converted back to electrical signal. This is decoded and
original analog signal is reconstructed.
Advantages of optical communication system over cable communication system are
(i) Wide channel bandwidth and large channel carrying capacity.

Write an expression for the force experienced by a charged particle moving in a uniform

Show that cyclotron frequency does not depend on the speed of the particle.
A cyclotron is a device developed by Lawrence and Livingstone by which the positively
charged particles likes proton, deutron etc. can be accelerated.
Principle
Assessments by Vriti
PYSP 2004 / Class XII
12
The working of the cyclotron is based on the fact that a positive charged particle can be
accelerated to a sufficiently high energy with the help of smaller values of oscillating electric field.
Construction
It consists of two D-shaped hollow evacuated metal chambers D1 and D2 called the dees. These
dees are placed horizontally with their diametric edges parallel and slightly separated from each
other. The dees are connected to high frequency oscillator which can produce a potential
4
7
difference of the order of 10 volts at frequency 10 Hz. The two dees are enclosed in an
evacuated steel box and are well insulated from it. The box is placed in a strong magnetic field
produced by two pole pieces of strong electromagnets N, S. The magnetic field is perpendicular
to the plane of the dees. P is a place of ionic source or positively charged particle.

Working and Theory
The positive ion to be accelerated is produced at P. Suppose, at that instant, D1 is at negative
potential and D2 is at positive potential. Therefore, the ion will be accelerated towards D 1. On
reaching inside D1, the ion will be in a field free space. Hence it moves with a constant speed in
D1 say v. But due to perpendicular magnetic field of strength B, the ion will describe a circular
path of radius r(say) in D1, given by
mv 2
r
Bqv
where m and q are the mass and charge of the ion.
r
mv
Bq
Time taken by ion to describe a semicircular path is given by
t
r
v
m
Bq
B q/m
= constant
Thus this time is independent of both the speed of the ion and radius of the circular path. In case
the time during which the positive ion describes a semicircular path is equal to the time during
which half cycle of electric oscillator is completed, then as the ion arrives in the gap between the
two dees, the polarity of the dees is reversed i.e. D 1 becomes positive and D2 negative.
Therefore, the positive ion is accelerated towards D2 and it enters D2 with greater speed which
remains constant in D2. The ion will describe a semicircular path of greater radius due to
perpendicular magnetic field and again will arrive in a gap between the two dees exactly at the
instant, the polarity of the two dees is reversed. Thus, the positive ion will go on accelerating
Assessments by Vriti
PYSP 2004 / Class XII
13
every time it comes into the gap between the dees and will go on describing circular path of
greater and greater radius and finally acquires a sufficiently high energy. The accelerated ion can
be removed out of the dees from window W, by applying the electric field across the deflecting
plates E and F.

Wheatstone Bridge is an arrangement of four resistances P, Q, R and S joined together to form a
loop like the four arms of a quadrilateral as shown. It is said to be balanced when P/Q = R/S. In
balanced condition, a cell joined between A and B sends a current i 1 in the branch P and i2 in the

Dividing with equations, we get P/Q = R/S.
The figure shows a meter bridge which consists of four resistances (a) P which is unknown (b) Q
which is a resistance known from a resistance box (c) R which is the resistance of the length l of
the meter bridge wire AB (d) S which is the resistance of the length (100 - l) of the meter bridge
wire AB. The wire AB is a uniform resistance wire and 100 cm long. When the potentials V C = VD
there is no current in the galvanometer.

This is a null condition. Point D is called the null point. According to the principle of meter bridge
PQ = R/S =

For determination of specific resistance , the first step is to find the resistance. Then use the
formula resistance =
l
. The length l, be measured by a meter scale and area A be measured
A
by the micrometer screw gauge.
Precautions: (i) The resistance Q from the resistance box should be chosen so that the balance
point D comes near to the center of the wire.
(ii) Since the galvanometer G is a sensitive meter, a high protective resistor should be joined in
series with it until a near balance is reached on the wire. When the near balance is reached this
high resistor is shunted or removed and final balance point is found.
