ISC Class 12 Physics Important Questions

Class 12 physics is one such subject that requires a lot of practice and dedication to get through. With a lot of numerical included, the subject needs a great amount of problem-solving and analytical skills. The ISC Class 12 physics syllabus is very vast and hence memorising each of them is often very difficult. To ease the effort of students preparing for the exams, the specialists at BYJU’S have come up with the ISC Class 12 important questions. The list of questions provided in it covers almost all the important topics and concepts that are most likely to appear for the ISC class 12 exam.

  2. For a common emitter transistor amplifier, the audio signal voltage across the collector resistance (rc ) of 2 kΩ is 2 V. If the current amplification factor (β) of the transistor is 100, calculate the input signal voltage (VBE) and base current (IB) for base resistance of 1 kΩ.
  3. For a transistor in a common emitter mode, draw a labelled graph to show:
    1. Input characteristic curve.
    2. Output characteristic curve.
