Electromagnetic Waves

Solution of Assignment (Set-2)

SECTION - D Assertion-Reason Type Questions 1.

A : Different electromagnetic waves differ considerably in their mode of interaction with matter. R : Different electromagnetic waves have different wavelength or frequency.

Sol. Answer (1) 2.

A : All electromagnetic waves travel through vacuum with same speed but they have different wavelength or frequency. R : The wavelength of the electromagnetic waves is often correlated with the characteristic size of the system that produces and radiates them.

Sol. Answer (1) 3.

A : High frequency electromagnetic waves are detected by some means based on the physical effects they produce on interacting with matter. R : The oscillating fields of an electromagnetic wave can accelerate charges and can produce oscillating currents therefore, an apparatus designed to detect EM waves is based on this fact.

Sol. Answer (1) 4.

A : Infrared waves are often called heat waves. R : Infrared waves vibrate not only the electrons, but entire atoms or molecules of a substance which increases the internal energy and temperature of the substance.

Sol. Answer (1) 5.

A : The centre of sensitivity of our eyes coincides with the centre of the wavelength distribution of the sun. R : Humans have evolved with visions most sensitive to the strongest wavelength from the sun.

Sol. Answer (1) 6.

A : Long distance radio broadcasts use short-wave bands. R : Ionosphere reflectes waves in these bands.

Sol. Answer (1) 7.

A : It is necessary to use satellites for long distance TV transmission. R : Television signals are not properly relfected by the ionosphere therefore, relfection is effected by satellites.

Sol. Answer (1) 8.

A : Optical and radiotelescopes are built on the ground but X-ray astronomy is possible only from satellites orbiting the earth. R : Atmosphere absorbs X-rays, while visible and radiowaves can penetrate it.

Sol. Answer (1) 9.

A : If the earth did not have an atmosphere, its average surface temperature would have been lower. R : In the absence of atmosphere, the green house effect will be absent.

10. A : It has been predicted that a global nuclear war on the earth would be followed by a severe 'nuclear winter' with a devastating effect on life on earth. R : The clouds produced by global nuclear war would perhaps cover substantial parts of the sky preventing solar light from reaching many parts of the globe causing winter. Sol. Answer (1) 11. A : In an EM wave the magnitude of the electric field vector is more than the magnitude of the magnetic field vector. R : Energy of the EM wave is shared equally between the electric and magnetic fields. Sol. Answer (2) 12. A : The displacement current goes through the gap between the plates of a capacitor when the charge on the capacitor does not change. R : Displacement current arises only when the electric field is constant. Sol. Answer (4) 13. A : When the frequency of the AC is increased, the displacement current increases. R : The sum of the conduction current and displacement current is constant. Sol. Answer (3) 14. A : When cooking in microwave ovens, metal containers are used. R : Energy of the microwaves can be easily transferred to the food thorugh metal. Sol. Answer (4) 15. A : Food is cooked faster by microwaves than by conventional gas burner. R : Microwaves have more energy than heat waves. Sol. Answer (3) 16. A : Microwaves are commonly used in radar to locate flying objects. R : Microwaves have smaller wavelength than radiowaves. Sol. Answer (1) 17. A : Environmental damage has depleted the ozone layer in the atmosphere. R : Increase in ozone decreases the amount of UV radiation to earth. Sol. Answer (2) 18. A : The electrical conductivity of the earth's atmosphere does not change with altitude. R : Cosmic rays from outer space entering the earth's atmosphere do not affect it. Sol. Answer (4) 19. A : Static crashes are heard on a radio when a lightening flash occurs. R : Light and radiowaves are EM waves and they interfere. Sol. Answer (1) 20. A : TV signals are affected if a low flying aircraft passes by or a petrol vehicle is started next to it. R : Aircarft signals or vehicle's spark plug generate interfering EM waves. Sol.

Electromagnetic Waves

Solution of Assignment (Set-2)

21. A : Light waves can be polarised. R : All electromagnetic waves move with same speed in vacuum. Sol. Answer (2) 22. A : In an electromagnetic wave the energy density in electric field is equal to energy density in magnetic field. R : Electromagnetic waves are transverse in nature. Sol. Answer (2)

E B represents the instantaneous intensity at a point. 23. A : The Poynting vector given as S 0 R : The velocity of an electromagnetic wave is in the direction of the vector E B .

Sol. Answer (2) 24. A : The radiation pressure due to light waves is maximum when the surface is a perfect reflector. R : The momentum transfer by the photons to a perfectly reflecting surface is maximum. Sol. Answer (1) 25. A : In a material medium the speed of a particle can be more than the speed of light in that medium. R : In the phenomenon of green house effect, low wavelength radiation is allowed to pass but high wavelength radiation is not allowed to pass. Sol. Answer (2)
