than the applied voltage of the a.c. source? Justify your answer.

Q12. The image of a candle is formed by a convex lens on a screen. The lower half of the lens
is painted black to make it completely opaque. Draw the ray diagram to show the image
formation. How will this image be different from the one obtained when the lens is not painted

Q13. An electric dipole is held in a uniform electric field. (1) Using suitable diagram, show that
it does not undergo any translatory motion, and (ii) derive an expression for the torque acting
on it and specify its direction.

of 2.5 MA. How will you convert the galvanometer into an ammeter of range 0 to 7.5 A?
Determine the net resistance of the ammeter. When an ammeter is put in a circuit, does it read
slightly less or more than the actual current in the original circuit? Justify your answer.
