Observation

(a)      (i)      Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction states
that the magnitude of the induced e.m.f. is proportional to the
rate at which the conductor cuts or is cut by the magnetic flux
OR
Faraday’s law states that the magnitude of the e.m.f. induced in a
circuit is proportional to the rate of change of magnetic flux
through the circuit.

(ii)      Electric bells, buzzers, telephone receivers, loudspeakers and
relays.

1. (i)       2 poles give 1 cycle: 1 revolution

10 poles give 1 x  = 5 cycles

(ii)       T(revolutions per second) =  =  = 20 mS
The question was on Electromagnetic Fields/A.C. Machines. The question was well attempted by the candidates. However, the (b) part was not well done by many; attributed to level of understanding and exposure.
