Class – 12 Physics (Moving Charges and Magnetism)

    1. {tex} {\rm{2}}\pi {\rm{ }} \times {\rm{1}}{0^{ – {\rm{5}}}}{\rm{T}}{/tex}
      Explanation: i=4 A, r= 10-2 m
      Magnetic field = {tex}\frac{\mu_0i}{2r}\times\frac\theta{360^0}{/tex}
      {tex}=\frac{4\mathrm\pi\times10^{-7}}2\times\frac4{10^{-2}}\times\frac{90}{360}\;=2\mathrm\pi\times10^{-5}\;\mathrm T{/tex}
    1. IA
      Explanation: The torque experienced by a current carrying coil of N turns placed in a magnetic field {tex}\vec \tau = NI\vec A \times \vec B{/tex}.
      For N =1, {tex}\vec \tau = I\vec A \times \vec B{/tex} Comparing with torque experienced by a electric dipole
      we get {tex}\overrightarrow{M}\times\overrightarrow B=I\overrightarrow{A}\times\overrightarrow B{/tex} hence {tex}\overrightarrow{M}=I\overrightarrow{A}{/tex}.
    1. {tex} \oint \vec{B}. \vec{dl} = \mu_0 I{/tex}
      Explanation: The expression for Ampere’s circuital law is {tex}\oint {\vec B \cdot d\vec l = } {\mu _0}I{/tex}
      Where I is the current included in the surface bounded by the line integral.
    1. 150
      Explanation: {tex}R=\frac V{I_g}-G{/tex}
      V = 2.5 V ; G = 100 Ohm ; {tex}I_g\;=0.01\;A{/tex}
      solving we get
      R = 150 Ohm
    1. iLB
      Explanation: Magnitude of the Force experienced by a current carrying conductor placed in a magnetic field is {tex}ILB\sin\theta{/tex} . If the angle between the directions of the current and the magnetic field is 90⁰, F= iLB
  1. Tesla metre / ampere (TmA-1).
  2. When a charge moves parallel or antiparallel to the direction of the magnetic field, the force acting on it is zero or minimum.
  3. Given, I = 35 A, r = 20 cm, = 0.2 m
    {tex}B = \frac{{{\mu _0}I}}{{2\pi r}} = \frac{{4\pi \times {{10}^{ – 7}} \times 35}}{{2\pi \times 0.20}}T{/tex}
    {tex} = 3.5 \times {10^{ – 5}}T{/tex}
  4. SI unit of magnetic field is tesla (T)
  5. By using formula,
    {tex}F = \frac{{{\mu _0}{I_1}{I_2}l}}{{2\pi r}}{/tex}
    {tex} = \frac{{4\pi \times {{10}^{ – 7}} \times 10 \times 5 \times 0.20}}{{2\pi \times 0.05}} = 4 \times {10^{ – 5}}N{/tex}
    The direction of force is perpendicular to the length of wire Y and acts away from X.
  6. The direction of the force is along -ve z-axis.
  7. Magnetic field at the midpoint due to loop 1.
    {tex}{B_1} = \frac{{{\mu _0}i{R^2}}}{{2{{\left( {{R^2} + {R^2}} \right)}^{\frac{3}{2}}}}}{/tex} acting towards right
    Magnetic field at the mid point due to loop 2.
    {tex}{B_2} = \frac{{{\mu _0}i{R^2}}}{{2{{\left( {{R^2} + {R^2}} \right)}^{\frac{3}{2}}}}}{/tex} acting towards right
    Total magnetic field at the mid point
    B = B1 + B2
    or {tex}B = \frac{{{\mu _0}i{R^2}}}{{{{\left( {2{R^2}} \right)}^{\frac{3}{2}}}}}{/tex}
    which is acting towards right.
  8. The electrostatic field is directed towards south. Since the electron is a negatively charged particle, therefore, the electrostatic field shall exert a force directed towards north. So, if the electron is to be prevented from deflection from straight path, by the magnetic force on the electron should be directed towards south. Now {tex}{\overrightarrow F _m} = – e(\overrightarrow v \times \overrightarrow B ) \cdot {\overrightarrow F _m}{/tex} is towards south, {tex}\overrightarrow v {/tex} is due east. Applying Fleming’s left hand rule we find that magnetic field {tex}\overrightarrow B {/tex} should be in the vertically downward direction.
  9. The definition of current sensitivity and voltage sensitivity are given
    {tex}\rightarrow{/tex} Let the deflection produced in applying voltage V is {tex}\alpha{/tex} then
    Voltage sensitivity {tex} = \frac{\alpha }{v} = \frac{{NBA}}{{kR}}{/tex}
    The voltage sensitivity may be increased by (i) increasing, N, B, A (ii) decreasing k and
    Current sensitivity {tex} = \frac{{NBA}}{k}{/tex} can be increased by
    (i) increasing NBA (ii) decreasing k.
    Hence increasing the current sensitivity may not necessarily increase the voltage sensitivity of a galvanometer.
  10. On the inner and outer sphere’s surface charges of {tex} – 0.1\mu C{/tex} and {tex} + 0.1\mu C{/tex} are induced respectively. The potential of the sphere relative to earth is determined solely by the outer surface charge q.
    {tex}\therefore V = \frac{1}{{4\pi {\varepsilon _0}}}\frac{q}{r}{/tex}
    where r is the radius of the sphere
    Now, {tex}V = 9 \times {10^9}N{m^2}{C^{ – 2}}\frac{{0.1 \times {{10}^{ – 6}}C}}{{0.2m}}{/tex}
    = 4500 V

    1. The potential of the sphere is momentarily reduced to zero when it is earthed. The positive charge on the outer surface disappears but the induced negative charge inside remains. Therefore, the potential of the sphere is zero.

    2. The induced negative charge is neutralized when the metal touches the sphere and no charge remains on the metal or sphere. Both are at the same potential i.e. zero potential.
