Peltier effect

Q3. The neutral temperature of a thermocouple is 350.C when the cold junction is at 0.C.When the cold junction is immersed in a bath of 30.C ,the inversion temperature is

•   700.C
•   600.C
•   350.C
•   670.C

670.C

•  Seebeck electro motive force (emf)
•  Peltier electro motive force (emf)
•  Thomson electro motive force (emf)
•  None of these

Thomson electro motive force (emf)

Q5. For a thermocouple the neutral temperature is 270o C when its cold junction is at 20o C. What will be the neutral temperature and the temperature of inversion when the temperature of cold junction is increased to 40o C

•  290oC , 580oC
•  270oC , 580oC

•  290oC , 540oC

270oC , 500oC

Q6. In a Cu-Fe thermo couple the battery current is driven from Cu-Fe through J2. Then

•  J2 should heat’s up
•  J2 should cool down
•  J1 should cool down
•  Both J1 and J2 either heat’s up or cool down depending upon the direction of current

J2 should cool down

Q7. For a thermocouple if the cold junction is maintained at 0oC the inversion temperature is 680oC. Its Neutral temperature is

•  1360oC
•  650oC

340oC

Q8. Consider the following two statements A and B, and identify the correct choice of given answers. A. Thermo e.m.f. is minimum at neutral temperature of a thermocouple B. When two junctions made of two different metallic wires are maintained at different temperatures, an electric current is generated in the circuit.

•  A is false and B is true
•  A is true and B is false
•  Both A and B are false
•  Both A and B are true

A is false and B is true
