(a) 10-12 m

(b) 10-4 m

(c) 10m

10. Name the electromagnetic radiation having the wavelength range from 1 mm to 700 nm. Give its two important applications.

11. What is meant by electromagnetic spectrum? Give its four uses.

1. 2. According to the property of conductivity,

The displacement current = Charging current = 0.25 A

3. The speed of an em wave in free space is 4. c = E0/B0

5. 25 mm to 5 mm

6. The displacement current is that current which comes into existence, in addition in to the conduction current, whenever the electric field and hence the electric flux changes with time.

7.

b. treatment of muscular complaints

c. sterilizing surgical instruments

8. (a) microwave used in radar system

(b) infra red used in treatment of muscular complaints.

9. Identification:-

b. Infrared rays use – haze photography

10. X-rays used in a. medical diagnosis and b. in study of crystal structure.

11. All the known radiation from the big family of electromagnetic wave which stretch over a long range of wavelengths. The orderly distribution of the electromagnetic wave in accordance with their wavelengths or frequency in to distinct group having widely different properties is called electromagnetic spectrum.

For example the X rays is one part of spectrum whose use are-

(i) used in detecting fractures in bones

(ii) used in detecting faults,cracks,haws &  holes in metal sheets

(iii) used in studying crystal structure
