1. Positive ions only
2. Electrons only
3. Electrons and positive ions
4. None of these

Correct answer: 3. Electrons and positive ions

## At 0 K Germanium behaves as

At 0 K Germanium behaves as:

1. Conductor

## Two resistors X and Y having resistance value Rx and Ry having resistivities ρx and ρy. If Rx < Ry, then

Two resistors X and Y having resistance value Rx and Ry having resistivities ρx and ρy. If Rx < Ry, then:

1. Ρx = ρy
2. ρx < ρy
3. ρx > ρy
4. Insufficient data

## For a 10 kΩ resistor, the change in voltage when current changes from 2 mA to 5.5 mA is

For a 10 kΩ resistor, the change in voltage when current changes from 2 mA to 5.5 mA is:

1. 35 V
2. 50 V
3. 70 V
4. 120 V

Solution:

For resistor, the voltage versus current graph is linear.

When I = 2 mA; V = 20 V

When I = 5.5 mA; V = 55 V

Change in voltage = 55 V – 20 = 35 V
