MCQs on alternating current for NEET



Important points to remember about Alternating current (A.C) 

  • Voltage or current is said to be alternating if it changes continously in magnitude and perodically in direction.
  • It can be represented by a sine curve or cosine curve.
  • The maximum value of current in either direction is called peak value or the amplitude of current. It is represented by I0 Peak to peak value = 2I0
  • The time taken by alternating current to complete one cycle of variation is called periodic time or time period of the current.
  • The number of cycle completed by an alternating current in one second is called the frequency of the current. UNIT : (cycle/s) or (Hz).
  • The mean value of A.C over any half cycle (either positive or negative) is that value of DC which would send same amount of charge through a circuit as is sent by the AC through same circuit in the same time.
  • It is value of DC which would produce same heat in given resistance in given time as is done by the alternating current when passed through the same resistance for the same time.
  • Alternating current and voltages are measured by a.c. ammeter and a.c. voltmeter respectively.
  • Working of these instruments is based on heating effect of current, hence they are also called hot wire instruments.
  • A.C. is cheaper than D.C
  • It can be easily converted into D.C. (by rectifier)
  • It can be controlled easily (choke coil)
  • It can be transmitted over long distance at low power loss.
  • It can be stepped up or stepped down with the help of transformer.
  • The instrument based on heating effect of current are works on both A.C and D.C supply and also provides same heating for same value of A.C (rms) and D.C. that’s why a bulb bright equally in D.C. and A.C. of same value.
  • If the frequency of AC is f then it becomes zero, 2f times in one second and the direction of current changes 2f times in one second. Also it become maximum 2f times in one second.
  • Some Important wave forms and their RMS and Average Value
