Physics
Directions Q. Nos. 1-3 are based on the
following paragraph.
Wave property of electrons implies that they
will show diffraction effects. Davisson and
Germer demonstrated this by diffracting
electrons from crystals. The law governing the
diffraction from a crystal is obtained by
requiring that electron waves reflected from
the planes of atoms in a crystal interfere
constructively (see figure).

93. We know that series of GP = a, ar, ar 2 ,ar 3 , , a r n-1.


Here, first term = a, second term = ar and
third term = ar 2
Since,
a + ar = a(1 + r ) = 12
and
ar 2 + ar 3 = ar 2 (1 + r ) = 48
From Eqs. (i) and (ii),
r 2 = 4 r = -2
On putting the value of r in Eq. (i), we get
a = -12
