Magnetic Effects of Electric Current

  • Properties of Magnetic field lines
    • Originate from the North pole and end at the South pole [outside the magnet]
    • They are closed continuous lines
    • Density of the lines increases near the poles and decreases away from the poles
    • Lines never cross each other

  • Like poles repel and unlike poles attract each other.
  • The region where magnetic field lines are crowded has relatively greater strength
  • The magnetic poles of the Earth continuously change their position with time i.e., the magnetic North Pole becomes the magnetic South Pole and vice-versa. This phenomenon of flipping of poles is known as magnetic reversal.
  • The angle of the horizontal plane between the geographic North (true North) and the magneti…
