(b) series circuit is inductive and parallel circuit is capacitive
(c) both circuits are inductive
(d) both circuits are capacitive

(a) The torque slip is approximately a hyperbola
(b) The torque slip is approximately a straight line
(c) The torque slip curve is at its maximum
(d) The torque slip is approximately a parabola
Sol. Joule’s law:
The law explains that amount of heat production in a conductor is:
Directly proportional to the square of electric current flowing through it.
Is directly proportional to the resistance of the conductor.
Directly proportional to the time for which electric current flows through the conductor,
i.e., H=I^2 Rt
Sol. A charged capacitor stores energy in the electrical field between its plates.
U_C=1/2 CV^2=1/2 QV
So, when the rotor starts gaining speed, due to increase of rotor speed, slip of an induction
Sol. Current chopping usually occurs in Air blast circuit breaker.
Current Chopping in circuit breaker is defined as a phenomenon in which current is forcibly interrupted before the natural current zero.
Sol. For series Resonant RLC circuit
For series RLC circuit, nature of circuit below resonant frequency is capacitive and vice-versa for parallel RLC circuit.
Sol. For induction motor –
at low value of slip, S×_2≪R₂
