How can you determine the polarity of unlabeled magnet?

The polarity of an unlabelled magnet is determined by following methods. First method: Suspend the magnet freely with the help of a thread so that it can oscillate freely.When magnet comes to rest ,one end always points towards the northern end of the earth.This end of magnet is thus called the North pole.Similarly,the other end of the magnet pointing towards ...

What is the difference between emf and potential difference?

Electromotive force: The emf is the energy supplied to unit charge by the cell or battery. It is also defined as “the potential difference between the terminals of a battery when no current is flowing through an external circuit when the circuit is open. Potential difference: The voltage across the terminals of the battery when the current is being drawn ...

do electron tend to go to regions of high potential or low potential?

Electrons are negatively charged particles.When placed in an electric field ,negatively charged plate will repel them while positively charged plate will attract them.So,the electrons will move from negatively charged plate to positively charged plate.Since positively charged plate is at higher potential,while negatively charged plate is at lower potential.Therefore electrons tend to go from region of lower potential to a region ...

Why is the electron volt often a more convenient unit of energy than a joule?

Both electron volt and joule are the units of energy.Since energies at atomic level are very small and are expressed in electron volt rather than Joule because Joule is a bigger unit.Hence the unit electron volt for energy is more convenient than joule,when we are dealing with atoms and nuclei to express the energy.

Difference between gas turbine and steam turbine

Idea of gas turbine is very old one,its working principle is an advanced version of wind mill.To achieve efficient working of turbine,the movement of  gas is controlled and directed to blades.The air which is under pressure supplied to turbine by air compressor. In gas turbine initially the air is obtained from atmosphere and compressed in air compressor.The air which is ...

Discuss analogies and differences between Gauss’s law and ampere’s law.

Analogies between Gauss’s law and Ampere’s law: Gauss’s law says the electric flux through a closed surface is proportional to the charge within the surface.Ampere’s law says the line integral of B.ds around a close path is proportional to the current that passes through that path. In Gauss’s law,the imaginary and arbitrary closed surface is taken enclosing a charge.In ampere’s ...

Discuss analogies and the differences between Coulomb’s law and the Biot- Savart’s law?

Similarities: Both the electric and magnetic field depends inversely on square of distance between the source and field point. Both electric field and magnetic field are proportional to the source strength namely charge and current element respectively. Both obey superposition principle. Differences: According to Coulomb’s law,the electrostatic force between two point charges is directly proportional to the product of their ...

Why resistivity of semiconductors decreases with temperature?

The solid materials having properties in between conductors and insulators are known as semiconductors. A semiconductor is a material which is neither a good conductor nor good insulator of electricity.Its resistivity lies in between conductors and insulators,which is 100 Ω cm.The energy gap between conduction and valence band is narrow for semiconductors with respect to insulators. With the rise in temperature ...
