The magnetic field due to a long solenoid is given as B = µ0ni, where n is the number of loops per unit length. So, if we add more loops at the ends of the solenoid, there will be an increase in the number of loops and an increase in the length, due to which the ratio n will remain unvaried, thereby leading to not a considerable effect on the field inside the solenoid.

#### Question 6:

The magnetic force on a wire carrying an electric current i is $\stackrel{\to }{F}=i.\left(\stackrel{\to }{l}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)$, where l is the length of the wire and B is the magnetic field acting on it. If a uniformly charged ring starts rotating around a straight wire, then according to the right-hand thumb rule, the magnetic field due to the ring on the current carrying straight wire placed at its axis will be parallel to it. So, the cross product will be
$\left(\stackrel{\to }{l}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\stackrel{\to }{F}=0$
Therefore, no magnetic force will act on the wire.

#### Question 8:

The magnetic force on a wire carrying an electric current i is $\stackrel{\to }{F}=i.\left(\stackrel{\to }{l}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)$, where l is the length of the wire and B is the magnetic field acting on it. If a uniformly charged ring starts rotating around a straight wire, then according to the right-hand thumb rule, the magnetic field due to the ring on the current carrying straight wire placed at its axis will be parallel to it. So, the cross product will be
$\left(\stackrel{\to }{l}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\stackrel{\to }{F}=0$

The magnetic force on a wire carrying an electric current i is $\stackrel{\to }{F}=i.\left(\stackrel{\to }{l}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)$, â€‹where l is the length of the wire and B is the magnetic field acting on it. Suppose we have one wire in the horizontal direction (fixed) and other wire in the vertical direction (free to move). If the horizontal wire is carrying current from right to left is held fixed perpendicular to the vertical wire, which is free to move, the upper portion of the free wire will tend to move in the left direction and the lower portion of the wire will tend to move in the right direction, according to Fleming's left hand rule, as the magnetic field acting on the wire due to the fixed wire will point into the plane of paper above the wire and come out of the paper below the horizontal wire and the current will flow in upward direction in the free wire. Thus, the free wire will tend to become parallel to the fixed wire so as to experience maximum attractive force.

#### Question 9:

Suppose we have one wire in the horizontal direction (fixed) and other wire in the vertical direction (free to move). If the horizontal wire is carrying current from right to left is held fixed perpendicular to the vertical wire, which is free to move, the upper portion of the free wire will tend to move in the left direction and the lower portion of the wire will tend to move in the right direction, according to Fleming's left hand rule, as the magnetic field acting on the wire due to the fixed wire will point into the plane of paper above the wire and come out of the paper below the horizontal wire and the current will flow in upward direction in the free wire. Thus, the free wire will tend to become parallel to the fixed wire so as to experience maximum attractive force.

Two proton beams going in the same direction repel each other, as they are like charges and we know that like charges repel each other.
When a charge is in motion then a magnetic field is associated with it. Two wires carrying currents in the same direction produce their fields (acting on each other) in opposite directions so the resulting magnetic force acting on them is attractive. Due to the magnetic force, these two wires attract each other.
But when a charge is at rest then only an electric field is associated with it and no magnetic fiels is produced by it. So at rest, it repels a like charge by exerting a electric force on it.
Charge in motion can produce both electric field and magnetic field.
The attractive force between two current carrying wires is due to the magnetic field and repulsive force is due to the electric field.

Connecting wires carrying currents in opposite directions are twisted together in using electrical appliances.If the wire is twisted, then the resultant fields from consecutive twists are in opposite directions. So the cumulative effect over a long length of wire is roughly zero.

Let at any point in between the two wires, B1 and B2 be the magnetic field due to wire 1 and wire 2 respectively.

From the diagram, we can see that the net magnetic field due to first turn is into the paper and due to second twisted turn is out of the plane of paper so these fields will cancel each other. Hence if the wire is twisted, then the resultant fields from consecutive twists are in opposite directions. So the cumulative effect over a long length of wire is roughly zero.

Magnetic field can not do any work and hence can never speed up or down a particle.
Consider 2 wires carrying current in upward direction.
Magnetic field due to current in wire 1 produces a magnetic field out of the plane of paper at the position of wire 2. Due to this magnetic field, a force is exerted on wire 2. Wire 2 electron, moving in downward direction,  move in circular paths due to this magnetic force. As these electrons can not come out of the wire so while describing circular path,they hit the edges of the wire and tranfer a momentum to the wire. Due to this change in momentum, wire starts moving and gains kinetic energy.

(c) upwards

A vertical wire is carrying current in upward direction, so the magnetic field produced will be anticlockwise (according to the right-hand thumb rule). As the electron beam is sent horizontally towards the wire, the direction of the current will be horizontally away from the wire (direction of conventional current is opposite to the direction of the negative charge). According to Fleming's left-hand rule, the force will act in upward direction, deflecting the beam in the same direction.

#### Question 2:

A vertical wire is carrying current in upward direction, so the magnetic field produced will be anticlockwise (according to the right-hand thumb rule). As the electron beam is sent horizontally towards the wire, the direction of the current will be horizontally away from the wire (direction of conventional current is opposite to the direction of the negative charge). According to Fleming's left-hand rule, the force will act in upward direction, deflecting the beam in the same direction.

The magnetic force on a wire carrying an electric current i is given asâ€‹ $\stackrel{\to }{F}=i.\left(\stackrel{\to }{l}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)$, where l is the length of the wire and B is the magnetic field acting on it. If a current-carrying straight wire is kept along the axis of a circular loop carrying current, then according to the right-hand thumb rule, the magnetic field due to the wire on the current-carrying loop will be along its circumference, which contains a current element .
So, the cross product will beâ€‹
$\left(\stackrel{\to }{l}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\stackrel{\to }{F}=0$
Thus, the straight wire will not exert any force on the loop.

Thus, the straight wire will not exert any force on the loop.

(a) towards the proton beam
A proton beam is going from north to south, so the direction of the current due to the beam will also be from north to south. Also, an electron beam is going from south to north, so the direction of the current due to the beam will also be  from north to south. The direction of conventional current is along the direction of the flow of the positive charge and opposite to the flow of the negative charge. The magnetic field generated due to them will enter the plane of paper in the west and come out of the plane of paper in the east, according to the right-hand thumb rule. Since both the beams have currents in the same direction, they will apply equal and opposite forces on each other and, hence, will attract each other. Thus, the electron beam will be deflected towards the proton beam.

#### Question 4:

(a) towards the proton beam
A proton beam is going from north to south, so the direction of the current due to the beam will also be from north to south. Also, an electron beam is going from south to north, so the direction of the current due to the beam will also be  from north to south. The direction of conventional current is along the direction of the flow of the positive charge and opposite to the flow of the negative charge. The magnetic field generated due to them will enter the plane of paper in the west and come out of the plane of paper in the east, according to the right-hand thumb rule. Since both the beams have currents in the same direction, they will apply equal and opposite forces on each other and, hence, will attract each other. Thus, the electron beam will be deflected towards the proton beam.

(d) is towards west at both A and B
According to the right-hand thumb rule, if we curl the fingers of our right hand in the direction of the current flowing, then the stretching of the thumb will show the direction of the magnetic field developed due to it and vice versa.
Let north-south is along x axis and east-west is along y axis. Circular wire is in xz plane. Then point A will lie on positive y axis and B on negative y axis. On looking from point B, current is flowing in anticlockwise direction so the magnetic field will point from right to left. Hence, the magnetic field due to the loop will be towards west at both A and B.

#### Question 5:

(d) is towards west at both A and B
According to the right-hand thumb rule, if we curl the fingers of our right hand in the direction of the current flowing, then the stretching of the thumb will show the direction of the magnetic field developed due to it and vice versa.
Let north-south is along x axis and east-west is along y axis. Circular wire is in xz plane. Then point A will lie on positive y axis and B on negative y axis. On looking from point B, current is flowing in anticlockwise direction so the magnetic field will point from right to left. Hence, the magnetic field due to the loop will be towards west at both A and B.

So, forces per unit length acting on sides AB and CD are as follows:

Here, FAB > FCD  because force is inversly proportional to the distance from the wire and wire AB is closer to the wire carrying current i1.
The forces per unit length acting on sides BC and DA will be equal and opposite, as they are equally away from the wire carrying current i1, with current i2 flowing in the opposite direction.

$\stackrel{\to }{F}=q\left(\stackrel{\to }{v}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)$
As the charge is moving along the magnetic line of force, the velocity and magnetic field vectors will point in the same direction, making a cross product.

So, the magnetic force on the particle will be zero.

#### Question 7:

(d) zero

The force on a charged particle q moving with velocity v in a magnetic field B is given by
$\stackrel{\to }{F}=q\left(\stackrel{\to }{v}×\stackrel{\to }{B}\right)$

â€‹According to Fleming's left-hand rule, if the forefinger and middle finger of our left hand point towards the magnetic field acting on a wire and the current flowing in the wire, respectively, then the thumb will point towards the direction in which the force will act (keeping all three perpendicular). Direction of force can be determined using Fleming's left-hand rule.

In the figure, dotted circle shows the magnetic filed lines due to both the wires.
Magnetic field at any point on the middle wire will be acting along the tangent to the masgnetic field lines at that point.
Therefore, the wire will experience a magnetic field pointing â€‹towards the 40 A wire.
Due to AB, the force will be towards right and due to CD, the force on the wire will be towards right. So, both the forces will add to give a resultant force, which will be towards right, that is, towards the 40 A current-carrying wire.
