A soft plastic bottle, filled with water of density 1 gm/cc, carries an inverted glass test tube with some air (ideal gas) trapped as shown in the figure. The test tube has a mass of 5 gm, and it is made of a thick glass of density 2.5 gm/cc. Initially, the bottle is sealed at atmospheric pressure p_{0} = 10^{5} Pa so that the volume of the trapped air is V_{0} = 3.3 cc. When the bottle is squeezed from outside at a constant temperature, the pressure inside rises and the volume of the trapped air reduces. It is found that the test tube begins to sink at pressure p_{0} + Δp without changing its orientation. At this pressure, the volume of the trapped air is V_{0} – ΔV.

**Paragraph Question 13 and 14**

A special metal S conducts electricity without any resistance. A closed wire loop, made of S, does not allow any change in flux through itself by inducing a suitable current to generate a compensating flux. The induced current in the loop cannot decay due to its zero resistance. This current gives rise to a magnetic moment which in turn repels the source of magnetic field or flux. Consider such a loop, of radius a, with its centre at the origin. A magnetic dipole of moment m is brought along the axis of this loop from infinity to a point at distance r (>> a) from the centre of the loop with its north pole always facing the loop, as shown in the figure below.

The magnitude of the magnetic field of a dipole m, at a point on its axis at distance r, is where μ_{0} is the permeability of free space. The magnitude of the force between two magnetic dipoles with moments, m1 and m2, separated by a distance r on the common axis, with their north poles facing each other, is where k is a constant of appropriate dimensions. The direction of this force is along the line joining the two dipoles.

13. When the dipole m is placed at a distance r from the centre of the loop (as shown in the figure), the current induced in the loop will be proportional to?

(A) m/r^{3}

(B) m^{2}/r^{2}

(C) m/r^{2}

(D) m^{2}/r

14. The work done in bringing the dipole from infinity to a distance r from the centre of the loop by the given process is proportional to?

A thermally insulating cylinder has a thermally insulating and frictionless movable partition in the middle, as shown in the figure below. On each side of the partition, there is one mole of an ideal gas, with specific heat at constant volume, CV = 2R. Here, R is the gas constant. Initially, each side has a volume V_{0} and temperature T_{0}. The left side has an electric heater, which is turned on at very low power to transfer heat Q to the gas on the left side. As a result, the partition moves slowly towards the right, reducing the right side volume to V_{0}/2. Consequently, the gas temperatures on the left and the right sides become T_{L} and T_{R}, respectively. Ignore the changes in the temperatures of the cylinder, heater and partition.

15. The value of T_{R}/T_{0} is

(A) √2

(B) √3
