Answer: Question 15.
A magnetic field of 100 G (1 G = 10-4 T) is required which is uniform in a region of linear dimension about 10 cm and area of cross-section about 10-3 m2. The maximum current-carrying capacity of a given coil of wire is 15 A and the number of turns per unit length that can be wound round a core is at most 1000 turns m-1. Suggest some appropriate design particulars of a solenoid for the required purpose. Assume the core is not ferromagnetic.
Ans:
Here, B = 100G = 100 x 10-4 T
Number of turns per unit length that can be wound around the core, The maximum current carrying capacity of the given coil of wire is 5 A. Let us take 10A as which is close to the permissible limit. So that magnetic field is uniform over a length of 10cm, the coil may be wound on the core of length, say 5 times 10cm i.e. 50cm. Since n = 800m-1,400 turns will have to be wound. Further, so that magnetic field is uniform over a cross section of 10-3 m-2, the coil may be wound on the core of cross section, say 5 times 103 ie., 5 x 10-3m2. If r is radius of the core, then Therefore, suggested particulars of the solenoid are
length = 50cm radius = 4cm
current = 10 A
and number of turns = 400.

Question 16.
For a circular coil of radius R and N turns carrying current I, the magnitude of the magnetic field at a point on its axis at a distance x from its centre is given by, (a) Show that this reduces to the familiar result for field at the centre of the coil.
(b) Consider two parallel co-axial circular coils of equal radius R, and number of turps N, carrying equal currents in the same direction, and separated by a distance ft. Show that the field on the axis around the mid-point between the coils is uniform over a distance that is small as compared to R, and is given by, $$B=0.72\frac { { \mu }_{ 0 }\quad NI\quad }{ R }$$ approximately.
[Such an arrangement to produce a nearly uniform magnetic field over a small region is known as Helmholtz coils.]
Answer: when the observation point lies at the centre of the coil ,x=o
Therefore, equation (1) becomes. (b) Here, the coils C1 and C2 of equal radius R and number of turns N and separated by a distance R are carrying equal currents, say I in. the same direction. Consider a small distance AB = d (<<R) at a distance R/2 from the center O1 of the coil C1 on the line joining the centres of the two coils as shown: Let B1 and B2 be the magnetic fields due to the two coils over the small distance d. Then  Expanding by Binomial theorem and neglecting higher powers of 4d/5R,we have Since the magnetic fields due to the two coils are in some direction, the effective magnetic field over the distance d is given by,
Beff = B1+B2 Question 17.
A toroid has a core (non-ferromagnetic) of inner radius 25 cm and outer radius 26 cm, around which 3500 turns of a wire are wound. If the current in the wire is 11 A, what is the magnetic field
(a) outside the toroid,
(b) inside the core of the toroid, and
(c) in the empty space surrounded by the toroid.
Answer:
Here, I = 11 A,
total numbers of turns = 3,500
Mean radius of toroid, (a) The field is non-zero only inside the core surrounded by the windings of the toroid. Therefore, the field outside the toroid is zero.
(b) The field inside the core of the toroid, For the above-mentioned reason, the field in the empty space surrounded by the toroid is also zero. Question 18.
Answer the following questions:
(a) A magnetic field that varies in magnitude from point to point but has a constant direction (east to west) is set up in a chamber. A charged particle enters the chamber and travels undeflected along a straight path with constant speed. What can you say about the initial velocity of the particle?

(b) A charged particle enters an environment of a strong and non-uniform magnetic field varying from point to point both in magnitude and direction, and comes out of it following a complicated trajectory. Would its final speed equal the initial speed if it suffered no collisions with the environment?

(c) An electron travelling west to east enters a chamber having a uniform electrostatic field in north to south direction. Specify the direction in which a uniform magnetic field should be set up to prevent the electron from deflecting from its straight-line path.
Answer:
(a) The force on a charged particle moving inside the magnetic field is given by
$${ \vec { F } }_{ m }=q(\vec { v } \times \vec { B } )$$
The force on the charged particle coil bd zero (will remain undeflected), if v x B is zero. Therefore, either the initial velocity v is parallel or anti-parallel to the magnetic field B.

(b) The magnetic field exerts force on the charged particle, which is always perpendicular to its motion and hence does no work. Therefore, charged particle will have its final speed equal to its initial speed, provided it suffered no collision with the environment.

(c) Under the action of electrostatic field, the electron will be deflected towards north (towards the positive plate). It will remain undeflected if the force due to the magnetic field is towards south. As the velocity: y of the electron is from west to east, the expression for the magnetic Lorentz force i.e. $${ \vec { F } }_{ m }=-e(\vec { v } \times \vec { B } )$$ it tells that the magnetic field $$\vec { B }$$ should be applied along the vertical and in downward direction. The direction of the magnetic field may be found by applying Fleming’s left hand rule.

Question 19.
An electron emitted by a heated cathode and accelerated through a potential difference of 2.0 kV, enters a region with uniform magnetic field of 0.15 T. Determine the trajectory of the electron if the field
(a) is transverse to its initial velocity,
(b) makes an angle of 30° with the initial velocity.
Answer:
B = 0.15 T
V = 2kV = 2 x 103V
When the electron is accelerated through a potential difference V, it gains kinetic energy which is given by (a) When the applied field is transverse to the initial velocity:
When the electron moves normal to the direction of the magnetic field, it experiences force which is normal to both its direction of motion and the direction of the magnetic field. This force provides centripetal force to the electron and makes it to move along a circular path. The radius of the circular path is given by : (b) When the applied field is inclined to its initial velocity. The velocity of the electron can be resolved into two components
(i) V cos θ along the direction of the filed
(ii) V sin θ along normal to the field.

Where as due to the component V sin θ, the electron moves along circular path, the component V cos θ makes the electron to move in straight line/path. Thus the electron moves in a helical path. The radius of the helical path is given by Question 20.
A magnetic field set up using Helmholtz coils (described in Exercise 4.16) is uniform in a small region and has a magnitude of 0.75 T. In the same region, a uniform electrostatic field is maintained in a direction normal to the common axis of the coils. A narrow beam of (single species) charged particles all accelerated through 15 kV enters this region in a direction perpendicular to both the axis of the coils and the electrostatic field. If the beam remains undeflected when the electrostatic field is 9.0 x 10-5 V m-1, make a simple guess as to what the beam contains. Why is the answer not unique?
Answer:
B = 0.75 T
E-9× 105 Vm-1
Let e be the charge, m be the mass and v by the velocity of the charged particle. Since the beam of the charged particles remains undeflected, the force on a charged particle due to magnetic and electric fields must be equal and opposite. Therefore  For proton, the value of e/m is 9.6 x 107 Ckg-1
It follows that the charged particle under reference has the value of e/m half that of proton and therefore may be a beam of deutrons. The answer is not unique, as this ratio of charge to mass i.e. 4.8 x 107 Ckg-1 can be satisfied by many other charges such as He4+,Li++ etc.

Question 21.
A straight horizontal conducting rod of length 0.45 m and mass 60 g is suspended by two vertical wires at its ends. A current of 5.0 A is set up in the rod through the wires.
(a) What magnetic field should be set up normal to the conductor in order that the tension in the wires is zero?
(b) What will be the total tension in the wires if the direction of current is reversed keeping the magnetic field the same as before?
(Ignore the mass of the wires.) g = 9.8 m sr2
Answer:
The mass of the rod, m = 60g=60 x 10-3 kg 1 = 0.45m; 1 = 5 A
(a) There will be no tension in the supporting wires, if the force on the rod due to the magnetic field is equal to the weight of the rod and is in vertically upward direction. If the current through the horizontal rod flows from its left to right end, then according to Fleming’s left hand rule, the magnetic field should’be applied perpendicular to the plane of the paper and in an inward direction. Therefore, for no tension in the supporting wires. (b) If the direction of the current is reversed, force on the rod will act in the direction of its weight and hence tension in the supporting wires will become
T = 2 x weight of the rod
= 2 x 60 × 10-3 x 9.8
= 1.176N

Question 22.
The wires which connect the battery of an automobile to its starting motor carry a current of 300 A (for a short time). What is the force per unit length between the wires if they are 70 cm long and 1.5, cm apart? Is the force attractive or repulsive?
Answer:
Force on a unit length of a current carrying conductor due to another infinitely long parallel current carrying conductor is given by, In the two wires connecting the battery to the starting motor, the current Will flow in opposite directions. Hence the force is repulsive. Question 23.
A uniform magnetic field of 1.5 T exists in a cylindrical region of radius 10.0 cm, its direction parallel to the axis along east to west. A wire carrying current of 7.0 A in the north to south direction passes through this region. What is the magnitude and direction of the force on the wire if,
(a) The wire intersects the axis
(b) The wire is turned from N-S to northeast-northwest direction,
(c) The wire in the N-S direction is lowered from the axis by a distance of 6.0 cm?
Answer: F = BIsinθ
B = 1.5 T
I = 7A
θ=90°
Radius of the cylindrical region of magnetic field, r = 10 cm = 0.1 m
The length AB of the wire inside the magnetic field,
1 = 2 x radius
= 2 x 0.1m = 0.2 m
F=1.5 x 7 x 0.2 x sin90°
= 1.5 x 7 x 0.2
= 2-1 N (vertically downwards) This figure shows the change in orientation of the wire. It follows that now the angle between the direction of magnetic field and the direction of flow current will be 45°. The length AB of the wire inside the magnetic field, The length AB of the wire inside the magnetic field can be found from the chord property of the circle. It follows that AC x BC = PC × QC = 1.5 x 7 x 0.16 x sin90°
= 1.5 x 7 x 0.16
= 1.68 N (vertically downwards).

Question 24.
A uniform magnetic field of 3000 G is established along the positive z-direction. A rectangular loop of sides 10 cm and 5 cm carries a current of 12 A. What is the torque on the loop in the different cases shown in Fig. 4.28? What is the force on each case? Which case corresponds to stable equilibrium? Answer:   IA = 0.06 Am2
B = 0.3 T
Magnitude of torque,
τ= 0.06×0.3 = 1.8 x 10-2Nm
The direction of the torque vector $$(\vec { \tau } )$$ is given by the direction of the vector $$(\vec { IA } )$$x $$\vec { B }$$ Since $$(\vec { IA } )$$ makes an angle of 30° with the positive X-axis in an anticlockwise direction, the torque vector x will make an angle of 30° + 90° i.e. 120° with positive X-axis in anticlockwise direction or 240° with the positive X-axis in a clockwise direction The resultant force is zero in all the cases. The loop in case (e) is in stable equilibrium. It is because of being disturbed slightly, the restoring torque comes into play to bring the loop back to its original position.
