General Instructions :
1. There are ten questions in this paper. Attempt all Questions.
2. Answer each question starting on a new page. The corresponding question number must be written in the left margin. Answer all the parts of a question at one place only.
3. Use only Arabic numerals (0, 1, 2 ………….9) in answering the questions irrespective of the language in which your answer.
4. Use of logarithmic tables is not permitted.
5. Use of calculator is not permitted.
1. (a) A hydrogen like atom of atomic number Z is in an excited state of quantum number 2n. It can emit a maximum energy photon of 204 eV. If it makes a transition to quantum state n, a photon of energy 40.8 eV is emitted. Find n, Z and the ground state energy (in eV) of this atom. Also calculate the minimum energy (in eV) that can be emitted by this atom during de-excitation. Ground state energy of hydrogen atom is –13.6 eV.
(b) When a beam of 10.6 eV photons of intensity 2.0 W/m2 falls on a platinum surface of area 1.0 × 10-4 m2 and work function 5.6 eV, 0.53% of the incident photons eject photoelectrons. Find the number of photoelectrons emitted per second and their minimum and maximum energies (in eV). Take 1eV = 1.6 × 10-19 J.
2. (a) A convex lens of focal length 15 cm and a concave mirror of focal length 30 cm are kept with their optic axis PQ and RS parallel but separated in vertical direction by 0.6 cm as shown. The distance between the lens and mirror is 30 cm. An upright object AB of height 1.2 cm is placed on the optic axis PQ of the lens at a distance of 20 cm from the lens. If A’ B’ is the image after refraction from the lens and the
reflection from the mirror, find the distance of A’ B’ from the pole of the mirror and obtain its magnification. Also locate positions of A’ and B’ with respect to the optic axis RS.
(b) A glass plate of refractive index 1.5 is coated with a thin layer of thickness t and refractive index 1.8. Light of wavelength l travelling in air is incident normally on the layer. It is partly reflected at the upper and the lower surfaces of the layer and the two reflected rays interfere. Write the condition for their constructive interference constructively.
3. A 3.6 m long pipe resonates with a source of frequency 212.5 Hz when water level is at certain heights in the pipe. Find the heights of water level (from the bottom of the pipe) at which resonances occur. Neglect end correction. Now the pipe is filled to a height H (»3.6 m). A small hole is drilled very close to its bottom and water is allowed to leak. Obtain an expression for the rate of fall of water level in the pipe as a function of H. If the radii of the pipe and the hole are 2 × 10–2 m and 1 × 10–3 m respectively, calculate the time interval between the occurrence of first two resonances. Speed of sound in air is 340 m/s and g = 10 m/s2.
