Class – 12 Physics (Electromagnetic Induction)

    1. ​​​​{tex}-M\frac{di_1}{dt}{/tex}
      Explanation: {tex}{N_2}{\phi _2} \propto {i_1}{/tex}
      {tex}{N_2}{\phi _2} = M{i_1}{/tex}
      {tex}{e_2} = – {N_2}\frac{{d{\phi _2}}}{{dt}} = – \frac{{d({N_2}{\phi _2})}}{{dt}}{/tex}
      {tex}{e_2} = – M\frac{{d{i_1}}}{{dt}}{/tex}
    1. 30 Wb
      Explanation: {tex}\Delta \phi = M\Delta i = 1.5 \times 20 = 30{\rm{Wb}}{/tex}
    1. The polarity of induced emf is such that it tends to produce a current which opposes the change in magnetic flux that produced it.
      Explanation: The direction of an induced emf, or the current, in any circuit is such as to oppose the cause that produces it.
      If the direction of the induced current were such as not to oppose then we would be obtaining electrical energy continuously without doing work, which is impossible.
    1. 0.24 mV, 0.048 mA
      Explanation: e = Rate of change of magnetic field {tex} \times {/tex} area
      {tex} = 0.02 \times 120 \times {10^{ – 4}} = 0.24{\rm{mV}}{/tex}
      {tex}i = {e \over R} = {{0.24} \over 5} = 0.48{\rm{mA}}{/tex}
    1. 0.1 H
      Explanation: {tex}L = – \frac{e}{{\frac{{\Delta i}}{{\Delta t}}}}{/tex}
      {tex}{{\Delta i} \over {\Delta t}} = – {4 \over {0.05}} = – 80{/tex}
      e = 8 volt
      {tex}{\rm{L}} = – {8 \over { – 80}} = 0.1{\rm{H}}{/tex}
  1. Yes. The vertical component of earth’s magnetic field shall induce emf.
  2. It happens due to production of eddy currents.
  3. According to Lenz’s law the induced current in:
    1. ring 1 is clockwise.
    2. ring 2 is anti-clockwise.
  4. Energy spent by the source to increase current from i to i + di in time dt in an inductor.
    {tex} = L\frac{{di}}{{dt}} \times i \times dt{/tex}
    = Li di
    Energy required to increase current from 0 to I
    {tex}E = \int\limits_0^I {Li} \,di = L\left[ {\frac{{{i^2}}}{2}} \right]_0^I{/tex}
    {tex}E = L\left[ {\frac{{{I^2}}}{2} – 0} \right] = \frac{1}{2}L{I^2}{/tex}
  5. The induced emf,
    {tex}\varepsilon = – \frac{{d\phi }}{{dt}}{/tex}
    {tex}\varepsilon = \frac{d}{{dt}}(BA\cos \phi )(\because \cos \phi = 1){/tex}
    {tex} = \frac{{20 \times 100 \times 4 \times {{10}^{ – 4}}}}{{0.2}}{/tex} = 4 volt.
  6. Relative velocity of the tube of width l = v – (-v) = 2v
    {tex}\therefore {/tex} induced emf,
    {tex}\varepsilon {/tex}= Bl(2v)
    = 2 Blv

    1. {tex}B = {\mu _0}{n_1}I = \frac{{{\mu _0}{N_1}I}}{1} = \frac{{{\mu _0}{N_1}I}}{{2\pi r}}{/tex}
      Total magnetic flux, {tex}{\phi _B} = {N_1}BA = \frac{{{\mu _0}N_1^2IA}}{{2\pi r}}{/tex}
      But {tex}{\phi _B} = LI{/tex}
      {tex}\therefore L = \frac{{{\mu _0}N_1^2A}}{{2\pi r}}{/tex}
      Or {tex}L = \frac{{4\pi \times {{10}^{ – 7}} \times 1200 \times 1200 \times 12 \times {{10}^{ – 4}}}}{{2\pi \times 0.15}}H{/tex}
      {tex} = 2.3 \times {10^{ – 3}}H{/tex}= 2.3 mH
    2. {tex}\left| E \right| = \frac{d}{{dt}}({\phi _2}){/tex} where {tex}{\phi _2}{/tex} is the total magnetic flux linked with the second coil.
      {tex}\left| E \right| = \frac{d}{{dt}}({N_2}BA) = \frac{{d}}{{dt}}\left[ {{N_2}\frac{{{\mu _0}{N_1}I}}{{2\pi r}}A} \right]{/tex}
      or {tex}\left| E \right| = \frac{{{\mu _0}{N_1}{N_2}A}}{{2\pi r}}\frac{{dI}}{{dt}}{/tex}
      {tex}\left| E \right| = \frac{{4\pi \times {{10}^{ – 7}} \times 1200 \times 300 \times 12 \times {{10}^{ – 4}} \times 2}}{{2\pi \times 0.15 \times 0.05}}V{/tex} = 0.023 V
  7. Here, l = 1 m, {tex}\omega = 400{s^{ – 1}}{/tex} B = 0.5 T, e = ?
    Note that linear velocity of one end of rod is zero and linear velocity of other end is {tex}\left( {1\omega } \right){/tex}. Average linear velocity
    {tex}v = \frac{{0 + 1\omega }}{2} = \frac{{1\omega }}{2}\left( {\because v = r\omega } \right){/tex}
    {tex}\therefore e = Blv = Bl\frac{{\left( {1\omega } \right)}}{2} = \frac{{B{l^2}\omega }}{2} = \frac{{0.5 \times {1^2} \times 400}}{2}=100v{/tex}
  8. Given,
    Length of loop, l = 8 cm {tex}=8\times 10 ^{-2}\;m{/tex}

      {tex}\varepsilon= B.l.v{/tex}
      {tex}=0.3\times 8 \times 10^{-2}\times 10 ^{-2}{/tex}
      {tex}=2.4\times 10^{-4} \;V{/tex}
      Time for which induced emf will last is equal to the time taken by the coil to move outside the field is
      {tex}I = \frac{{dis\tan ce\;travelled}}{{velocity}} = \frac{{2 \times {{10}^{ – 2}}}}{{{{10}^{ – 2}}}}\;m{/tex} = 2 sec.
    2. The conductor is moving outside the field normal to the shorter side.
      {tex}b=2\times 10 ^{-2} \; m{/tex}
      The magnitude of induced emf is
      {tex}\varepsilon= B.b.v{/tex}
      {tex}=0.3\times 2 \times 10^{-2}\times 10 ^{-2}{/tex}
      {tex}=0.6\times 10^{-4} \; V{/tex}
      Time, {tex}t = \frac{{dis\tan ce\;travelled}}{{velocity}} = \frac{{8 \times {{10}^{ – 2}}}}{{{{10}^{ – 2}}}}\;sec=8 \; sec{/tex}
  9. Consider a strip of width dr at a distance r from the straight wire.
    Magnetic field at the location of the strip due to the wire,
    {tex}B=\frac{\mu _0I}{2\pi r}{/tex}z
    Area of strip, dA = ldr
    Magnetic flux linked with the strip,
    {tex}d\phi_B=BdA=\frac{\mu I}{2\pi r}ldr{/tex}
    Total magnetic flux linked with the coil,

    {tex}d\phi _B=\frac{\mu_0Il}{2\pi}\frac{dr}{r}{/tex}
    {tex}\int d {Q_B} = \frac{{{\mu _0}Il}}{{2\pi }}\int\limits_{r_1} ^{{r_2}} {\frac{{dl}}{r}} {/tex}
    {tex}{Q_B} = \frac{{{\mu _0}{Il}}}{{2\pi }}[{\log _e}{r_2} – {\log _e}{r_1}]{/tex}
    {tex}{Q_B} = \frac{{{\mu _0}I \cdot 1}}{{2\pi }}\left[ {{{\log }_e}r} \right]_{r1}^{r2}{/tex}
    {tex}{Q_B} = \frac{{{\mu _0}{Il}}}{{2\pi }}log_e\frac{r_2}{r_1}{/tex}
    {tex}\phi_B=\frac{4\pi \times10^{-7}\times 10 \times0.2}{2 \pi} log[\frac{0.10}{0.05}]{/tex}
    {tex}=4\times 10 ^{-7} log_e2{/tex}
    {tex}=4 \times 0.693\times 10^{-7}\; Wb{/tex}
    {tex}2.77\times 10^{-7}\; Wb{/tex}
    Induced emf
    {tex}\left| E \right| = – \frac{{d{\phi _B}}}{{dt}} = \frac{{2.77 \times {{10}^{ – 7}}}}{{0.02}}\;V{/tex}
    {tex}=1.39 \times 10^{-5}\;V{/tex}
    Magnetic field, due to wire, at the location of the coil is perpendicular to the plane of the coil and directed inwards. When current is reduced to zero, this magnetic field decreases. To oppose this decrease, induced current shall flow clockwise, so that its magnetic field is also perpendicular to the plane of the coil and downward.
