Q.14 A coil of insulated copper wire is connected to a galvanometer. What would happen if a bar magnet is
(i) Pushed into the coil?
(ii) Withdrawn from inside the coil?
(iii) Held stationary inside the coil?
ANSWERS OF THE ABOVE QUESTIONS
A.1 Induced magnetic field will be in the form of concentric circles in the plane of paper.
A.2 By using magnetic compass which, shows deflection.
A.3 By inserting the steel bar inside thesolenoid and switching on electric current.
A.4 If so then at the point of intersection there will be two different directions of magnetic field which is not possible.
A.5 No, because both of them would then be ineffective in controlling the amount of current flowing.
A.6 Magnitude of electric current, perpendicular distance between that point and conductor.
A.7 It is always connected with live wire.
A.8 (i) It is used in cranes for lifting heavy loads.
(ii) used in electric bells.
A.9 Loudspeakers, Galvanometer, voltmeter.
A.11 The direction of earth’s magnetic field is from G-south to G-north. Let current is from west to east. Therefore force is vertically upwards.
(a) By reversing the direction of current, the direction of will be reversed i.e. vertically downwards.
(b) The magnitude of the force is doubled.
A.12 When a conductor carrying current is placed perpendicular to the direction of magnetic field, the acting on it is given by Fleming’s left hand rule. Since the direction of current is the same as that of the motion of a positive charge, the direction of force acting on it when moving perpendicular to the direction of magnetic field is the same as that acting on a current-carrying conductor placed perpendicular to the direction of magnetic field. Obviously, the force acting on an electron is opposite to that. Therefore in this case it is into the page.
A.13 It is thicker so that it does not enter into the live or neutral sockets. It is made longer so that it gets connected to the earth terminal earlier than the live and neutral pins. This ensures the safety of the user.
A.14 (i) Due to change in magnetic flux linked with coil, the galvanometer shows deflection (say towards right).
(ii) Due to change in magnetic flux linked with coil, the galvanometer shows deflection (say towards left opposite to that in case one).
( ii i) As it is stationary no change in magnetic flux linked with coil, so galvanometer shows no deflection.
Hope this helps!! Good luck for your exams!!
