    1. Since the voltage rating of each bulb is 3 volt, and is connected to 1 6 volt supply, we need to have two bulbs connected in series (to form a branch) to enable each bulb to be fully lit.

    Power supplied by the 6-volt source = 6 x 2 w = 12 w

    Each bulb consumes 1.5 w, hence each branch (consists of 2 bulbs in series) consumes 1.5 x 2 w = 3 w.

    No. of branches that can be connected to the power source in parallel

    = 12/3 = 4

    But there are 2 bulbs in each branch, the total no. of bulbs

    = 4 x 2 = 8

    2. (a) Let c be the critical angle

    sin(c) = 1/1.36

    hence, c = 47.33 degrees

    (b) Let the refracted angle at the other side (inside the soap) at A be r

    r = (c - 10) degrees = (47.33 - 10) degrees = 37.33 degrees

    Hence, sin(theta)/sin(37.33) = 1.36

    sin(theta) = 0.8247

    angle (theta) = 55.56 degrees

    (c)(i) Using Law of Reflection at the surface at B

    Reflected angle = c = 47.33 degrees

    Hence, incident angle of the reflected ray at the boundary at C

    = (47.33 + 10) degrees = 57.33 degrees

    Your question in supplementary:

    Current flows from high to low potential in an EXTERNAL CIRCUIT,but from low to high potential inside an electrical power source (like a battery or a generator/dynamo). Here,the moving coil acts like a generator producing electric current by electromagnetic induction.

    ... In the coil, the line AD acts as an external circuit, where as the line BC acts like an electrical generator (power source). Hence, D is higher in potential than A, but C is higher in potnetial than B.

    ... Current then flows from high to low potential in external circuit (from D to A) and from low to high potential in a power source (from B to C), thus completing a circuit.

    2013-01-30 22:52:42 補充:

    Just think of a case in which a resistor is connected to a battery. Current flows from the +ve to -ve pole of the battery (from high to low potential) through the resistor (external circuit), but from the -ve to +ve pole inside the battery (low to high potential).
