An AC ammeter is used to measure the current in a circuit. When a given direct current passes through the circuit, the ac ammeter reads 6 A. When another alternating current passes through the circuit, the AC ammeter reads 8 A. Then the reading of this ammeter if DC and AC flow through the circuit simultaneously is:
1. $10\sqrt{2}$ A
2. 14 A
3. 10 A
4. 15 A
In the diagram, two sinusoidal voltages of the same frequency are shown. What is the frequency and the phase relationship between the voltages?

1. | \(0.4\) | \(-\pi/4\) |
2. | \(2.5\) | \(-\pi/2\) |
3. | \(2.5\) | \(+\pi/2\) |
4. | \(2.5\) | \(-\pi/4\) |
A direct current of \(5~ A\) is superimposed on an alternating current \(I=10sin ~\omega t\) flowing through a wire. The effective value of the resulting current will be:

3. | \(5 \sqrt{5}~A\) | 4. | \(15~A\) |
A generator produces a voltage that is given by V = 240 sin 120 t, where t is in seconds. The frequency and r.m.s. voltage are:

3. ${10}^{-1}$ $\mathrm{s}$
4. ${10}^{-6}$ $\mathrm{s}$
The r.m.s. value of the potential difference V shown in the figure is:
