Question 1. The primary coil has 9000 turns and a current of 2A. The secondary coil has 3000 turns. What is the current in the secondary coil?


Question 2. How does a transformer produce a current in a secondary coil?

It's induced by the field produced by the secondary coil.
It's induced by the field produced by the primary coil.
The core conducts the current to the secondary coil.
The primary coil is electrically connected to the secondary coil.

Question 3. Why are transformers used for shaver outlets in bathrooms?

They isolate the electrical supply, making them safer.
They step up the electrical supply, making it higher voltage.
They step down the electrical supply, making it higher current.
They increase the efficiency of the supply, saving money.

Question 4. Why do we step down the potential difference for for use in our homes?

It reduces electricity bills.
It's more efficient.
It's safer.
It causes less current to flow.

Question 5. What is the benefit of using an AC supply?

It's more efficient than DC.
The changing current gives us a stronger magnetic field.
The changing current gives us a changing magnetic field.
It's safer than DC.
