Q.

**Statement–1 :**The temperature dependence of resistance is usually given as $\mathrm{R}=\mathrm{R}_{0}(1+\alpha \Delta \mathrm{t})$. The resistance of a wire changes from $100 \Omega$ to $150 \Omega$ when its temperature is increased from $27^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ to $227^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$. This implies that = $2.5 \times 10^{-3} /^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$.**Statement–2 :**$\mathrm{R}=\mathrm{R}_{0}(1+\alpha \Delta \mathrm{t})$ is valid only when the change in the temperature $\Delta \mathrm{T}$ is small and $\Delta \mathrm{R}=\left(\mathrm{R}-\mathrm{R}_{0}\right)<<\mathrm{R}_{0}$. (1) Statement–1 is true, Statement–2 is true; Statement–2 is not the correct explanation of Statement–1 (2) Statement–1 is false, Statement–2 is true (3) Statement–1 is true, Statement–2 is false (4) Statement–1 is true, Statement–2 is true; Statement–2 is the correct explanation of Statement–1**[AIEEE – 2009]**

(2) $\frac{\alpha_{1}+\alpha_{2}}{2}, \alpha_{1}+\alpha_{2}$
(3) $\alpha_{1}+\alpha_{2}, \frac{\alpha_{1}+\alpha_{2}}{2}$
(4) $\alpha_{1}+\alpha_{2}, \frac{\alpha_{1} \alpha_{2}}{\alpha_{1}+\alpha_{2}}$

Thank you so much sir 🙏🙏🙏

Thanks for your previous year JEE main question paper and solution all solution are are step wise and easy to understand

All the best Saransh sir Jay esarl Jay physics

Send video this question

So Nice I really learned so much….A biggest Thank you for Saral………

in the last question, the values for the internal resistances are wrong. different values are used in the solution.

Ya very true last ques is incorrect

I was very helpful to me🤗

Thank u

Excellent problems and for my side one request that is please keep more problems

its very nice tq sir

sir last q me error h

I wanted to notify that the Last question has a printing error. The 12V battery has an internal resistance of 1 ohm and not 10. Please rectify this error. Thank you
