OR

What are extrinsic semiconductors ? Name the two types of extrinsic semiconductors.

Answer: When the positive terminal of the battery is connected to p-region and the negative terminal of the battery is connected to n-region of the junction diode, it is said to be forward biasing.

When the positive terminal of the battery is connected to n-region & the negative terminal is connected to p-region of the p-n junction it is said to be reverse biasing.

Answer: The semiconductors which have the small traces of impurities [OR small traces of impurities are added to semiconductors] are called extrinsic semiconductors. Two types are

i) n-type semiconductor

ii) p-type semiconductor

Applications in medical field. They are used to

i) cure neuralgic & rheumatic pains

ii) break gall stones

iii) test internal organs

iv) bloodless surgery

Answer: The sound heard after reflection from a rigid surface is called echo. Two devices

i) Sonar

ii) Ultrasound scanner

33. The graph of a wave motion is given below. Observe the graph and answer the following questions: (a) What type of wave is represented in the graph ?

(b) What do PQ and PR indicate with respect to the wave ?

ii) Irregular galaxy

iii) Spiral galaxy 2

Milky Way is the name of the galaxy to which our solar system belongs to.

40. State Faraday’s laws of electromagnetic induction.

• First Law : The changing magnetic field linked with the conductor induces electromotive force in the conductor.
• Second law : Induced emf is proportional to the rate of change of magnetic field linked with the conductor.

45. Draw the diagram of a nuclear power plant and label the following parts.

(a) Control rods 38. (a) Explain the expansion stroke of a petrol engine.

(b) There is no spark plug in diesel engine. Why ?

i) Both inlet valve and outlet valve are closed

ii) Fuel burns quickly, and produces heat.

iii) Gaseous products such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and water vapour are formed along with carbon particles.

iv) Gaseous products expand suddenly and piston is pushed outwards.

Answer b: There is no spark plug in diesel engine

• The compression ratio of air and fuel in diesel engine is 14:1 to 25:1.
• High temperature around 1000 K is produced inside the engine. The compression and heat generated is enough to ignite the fuel (diesel). Hence, diesel engine does not require spark plug.
