Shown in the given diagrams (a), (b) and (c) are the magnetic fields around different systems. Identify them. Compare the pattern of the field lines in all the three systems.
In this setup, the magnetic field around a current carrying solenoid is shown. The field lines inside a solenoid are in the form of parallel straight lines. It indicates that the magnetic field is uniform inside the solenoid. One end of solenoid behaves as North pole and the other as South pole.
The magnetic field lines are circular around a current carrying wire. These concentric circles become larger as we move away from the wire indicating decrease in the decrease in magnetic field strength with increase in the distance.
The magnetic field due to current carrying loop is shown here. The magnetic field due to a current carrying straight wire is inversely proportional to the distance from it. They form concentric circles around the wire having increase in radius with distance. Similarly, at every point of the loop, the concentric circles would become larger as we move away from the wire. At the centre of loop, the arcs of these big circles appear as straight lines.
A student while studying the force experienced by a current-carrying conductor kept in a magnetic field records the following observations:
i. The force experienced by the conductor increases as the current is increased.
ii. The force experienced by the conductor decreases as the strength of the magnetic field is increased.
Which of the two observations is correct and why?
Two coils 1 and 2 of insulated copper wire having large but different number of turns are wound over a cardboard cylinder. Coil 1 is connected to battery and a plug key. Coil 2 is connected to a galvanometer.
How will the galvanometer reading change when
(i) key is plugged in and
(ii) key is taken out? Give reason for your answer in each case.
A student fixes a sheet of white paper on a drawing board. He places a bar magnet in the centre of it. He sprinkles some iron filings uniformly around the bar magnet. Then he taps the board gently and observes that the iron filings arrange themselves in a particular pattern.
a. Why do the iron filings arrange in a pattern?
b. What does the crowding of iron filings at the end of the magnet indicate?
c. What does the lines along which the iron filings align represent?
d. Draw a neat diagram to show the magnetic field lines around a bar magnet.
e. Write any two properties of magnetic field lines.
a. A stationary charge is place in a magnetic field. Will it experience a force? Give reason to justify your answer.
b. On what factors does the direction of force experienced by a conductor when placed in a magnetic field depend?
c. Under what conditions is the force experienced by a current carrying conductor placed in a uniform magnetic field maximum?
d. under what conditions is the force experienced by a current carrying conductor placed in a uniform magnetic field maximum?
Two coils C1 and C2 are wrapped around a non conducting cylinder. Coil C1 is connected to a battery and key and C2 with galvanometer G. On pressing the key (K), current starts flowing in the coil C1. State your observation in the galvanometer:
i. When key K is pressed on.
ii. When current in the coil C1 is switched off.
iii. When the current is passed continuously through coil C.
iv. Name and state the phenomenon responsible for the above observation. Write the name of the rule that is used to determine the direction of current produced in the phenomena.
