1. A diverging lens of focal length 20cm forms an image half of the size of the object. What is the object distance.
A. 20cm
B. 100cm
C. 60cm
D. 8.71
(oau)Updated Solution
For a diverging lens, f = ve, and image is virtual
f = 20, magnification m = v/u = 1/2
thus v = u/2 (virtual image)
from mirrors formular, 1/f = 1/u + 1/v = 1/u + 1/(u/2) = 1/u  2/u
1/f = 1/u  2/u = 1/u
1/(20) = 1/u
by subject formular, u = 1 × 20 = 20cm
Answer is Option A2. An electric heater rated 1000W evapourates 100kg of water in 60sec. What is the specific latent heat of vapourization of water in j/kg.
A. 100
B. 200
C. 600
D. 300
(abu)Updated Solution
P = W/t; W = Pt
heat gain = work done by the heater
So Wt = mL
by subject formular
L = Wt/m = (1000 × 60)/100 = 600J/kg
Answer is Option C3. Which of the following is not true about semiconductors
A. Moving holes are equivalent to moving positive charges
B. There are two kind of charge carriers, a free electron and hole
C. The escape of a valence electron from atom produces electronhole pair of charge carriers
D. Increase in temperature increase in electrical resistance
(uniben)Updated Solution
Semiconductors have negative temperature coefficient, thus its electrical resistance decrease with an increase in temperature
Answer is Option D

number3=D an increase in temperature allow the covalent bonds to break thus allow the free electrons to drift and form more electron hole pairs
