Class – 12 Physics (Magnetism and Matter)

    1. 6.24MA/m
      Explanation: {tex}M={B\over \mu_o}={\mu_oK_mNI\over \mu_o}{/tex}
      {tex}=5200\times 80\times 10^2\times 0.15{/tex}
      {tex}=6.24\times 10^6A/m{/tex}
    1. 5499
      Explanation: {tex}\chi_m=\mu_r-1=5500-1=5499{/tex}
    1. 4.48 T
      Explanation: {tex}B={\mu_o\mu_rNi\over2\pi r}={4\pi\times 10^{-7}\times 800\times 3500\times 1.2\over 2\pi\times 15\times 10^{-2}}{/tex} = 4.48 T
    1. 6.3 cm
      Explanation: The magnetic field at a distanced Rr from the centre of the magnet on its axis is given as:
      {tex}{B^1} = \frac{{{\mu _0}2M}}{{4\pi {R^3}}}{/tex}
      The resultant field is inclined at 45°with earth’s field.
      {tex}\therefore \;{B^r} = H{/tex}
      {tex}\frac{{{\mu _0}2M}}{{4\pi {{({R^r})}^3}}} = H{/tex}
      {tex}{({R^r})^3} = \frac{{{\mu _0}2M}}{{4\pi \times H}}{/tex}
      {tex} = \frac{{4\pi \times {{10}^{ – 7}} \times 2 \times 5.25 \times {{10}^{ – 2}}}}{{4\pi \times 0.42 \times {{10}^{ – 4}}}} = 25 \times {10^{ – 5}}{/tex}
      {tex}\therefore{/tex} Rr = 0.063m = 6.3 cm
    1. {tex}\oint \vec{B}.\vec{ds} = 0{/tex}
      Explanation: Since magnetic monopoles do not exist, flux entering the closed surface is equal to flux leaving the surface. Hence net magnetic flux through a closed surface is zero.
  1. At magnetic equator, vertical component of earth’s magnetic field will be zero. As vertical component of field is Bv = Bsinδ and at equator δ = 0o
  2. Let {tex}B_E{/tex} is earth’s magnetic field
    Now, {tex}B_E\cos 60 ^ { \circ } = B \Rightarrow B_E = \frac { B } { \cos 60 ^ { \circ } } = \frac { B } { 1 / 2 } = 2 B{/tex}
  3. Carbon steel piece, because heat lost per cycle is proportional to the area of hysteresis loop.
  4. Given, N = 800, I = 3 A, A = {tex}2.5 \times {10^{ – 4}}{m^2}{/tex}
    B = 0.25 T, {tex}\theta = 30^\circ {/tex}
    Magnetic moment, M = N I A
    {tex} = 800 \times 3.0 \times 2.5 \times {10^{ – 4}}{/tex}
    = 0.5 JT-1
    Torque, {tex}\tau = MB\;\sin \theta = 0.6 \times 0.25 \times \sin 30^\circ {/tex}
    {tex} = 0.150 \times 0.5 = 7.5 \times {10^{ – 2}}J{/tex}.
  5. For a perfectly diamagnetic substance.
    {tex}B = {\mu _0}\left( {H + I} \right) = 0{/tex}
    I = -H
    Therefore {tex}{\chi _m} = \frac{{ – H}}{H} = – 1{/tex}
    Also {tex}{\mu _r} = 1 + {\chi _m} = 1 – 1 = 0{/tex}
    {tex}\therefore \mu = {\mu _0}{\mu _r}{/tex}= zero

    1. Susceptibility for diamagnetic material
      It is independent of magnetic field and temperature (except for bismuth at low temperature).
      Susceptibility for ferromagnetic material
      The susceptibility of ferromagnetic materials decreases steadily with increase in temperature. At the Curie temperature, the ferromagnetic materials become paramagnetic. The value of magnetic succeptibility is positive and much more greater than 1 for ferromagnetic materials.
    2. Behaviour in non-uniform magnetic field
      Diamagnets are feebly repelled, whereas ferromagnets are strongly attracted by non-uniform field, i.e. diamagnets move in the direction of decreasing field, whereas ferromagnet feels force in the direction of increasing field intensity.
  6. Here, N = 16, r = 10 cm = 0.1 m
    I = 0.75 A, {tex}B = 5.0 \times {10^{ – 2}}T{/tex}
    v = 2.0 s-1
    M = NIA {tex} = NI\pi {r^2}{/tex}
    {tex} = 16 \times 0.75 \times \frac{{22}}{7}{(0.1)^2}{/tex}
    {tex} = 0.377\;J{T^{ – 1}}{/tex}
    Using formula
    {tex}v = \frac{1}{{2\pi }}\sqrt {\frac{{MB}}{I}} {/tex}
    {tex}\therefore {v^2} = \frac{{MB}}{{4{\pi ^2}I}}{/tex}
    Or {tex}I = \frac{{MB}}{{4{\pi ^2}{v^2}}}{/tex}
    Putting values, {tex}I = \frac{{0.377 \times 5.0 \times {{10}^{ – 2}}}}{{4 \times {{\left( {\frac{{22}}{7}} \right)}^2} \times {2^2}}} = 1.2 \times {10^{ – 4}}kg\;{m^2}{/tex}

    1. The angle of dip decreases from 90°to 0° as we move from pole to the equator of earth.
    2. For paramagnetic materials, magnetic lines of force are feebly attracted by the materials and for that reason only a few magnetic field lines enter in it. So, specimen X is paramagnetic. For ferromagnetic materials, all magnetic lines of force prefer to go through it. So, specimen Y is ferromagnetic.
    1. Magnetic declination at a place may be defined as the angle between its magnetic meridian and the earth geographic meridian at the place.
    2. Angle of dip at a place is defined as the angle between the direction of intensity of earth’s magnetic field (BE) and the horizontal direction in magnetic meridian at that place.
  7. Before passing current, compass needle was along H. On passing current, the needle shows a deflection of 30° (with H) under the combined effect of H and B, magnetic field due to current (in a direction perpendicular to the plane of the coil).
    As compass needle is inclined equally to H and B, figure, therefore.
    B = H
    {tex}\frac{{{\mu _0}NI}}{{2r}} = H{/tex}
    {tex}I = \frac{{2rH}}{{{\mu _0}N}} = \frac{{2 \times 0.1 \times 0.32 \times {{10}^{ – 4}}}}{{4\pi \times {{10}^{ – 7}} \times 2}}{/tex}
    or I = 2.54 A
