### RBSE Class 12 Physics Chapter 7 Short Answer Type Questions

Question 1.

Write down the results of Oersted’s experiments.

Answer:

Conclusions from Oersted’s Experiment

The following conclusions were stated from Oersted’s experiment :

- When an electric current is passed through a conducting wire, then the magnetic field is produced around it.
- When the magnitude of electric current is increased, then the magnitude of magnetic field is also increased.
- The strength of the established magnetic field due to current carrying conductor depends upon the position of observation point from the wire. Relatively stronger magnetic field is produced near the wire while on increasing the distance of observation point from the wire, the magnetic field intensity goes on decreasing.
- If the direction of current passing through the wire is from south to north, the north pole of the magnetic field is deflected towards the west. If the direction of current is flowing from north to south, the north pole of the magnetic needle is deflected towards the east. So on changing the direction of the current in the wire, then the direction of magnetic field is also changed.
- The direction of magnetic field above and below the conducting wire is always opposite. In the coming discussion we would explain magnetic field. This is dependent on position and time both.

Question 2.

Answer.

Vector form of Biot-Savart’s law

Question 3.

Explain two rules for calculating the direction of the magnetic field.

Answer:

Direction of Magnetic Field

The direction of a magnetic field can be known by the following direction rules :

(i) SNOW Rule : SNOW rule states that if the current is flowing in an electric circuit from South to North direction and a magnetic compass is placed over the conducting wire, the needle of the compass deflects in the direction of West

(ii) Right Hand Thumb Rule : According to this rule if you held the wire carrying current in your right hand so that the thumb indicate the direction of current then the curved fingers represent the direction of magnetic field (figure 7.3).

Question 4.

Any charged particle enters in a uniform magnetic field at an angle θ (where 0°< θ < 90°). How will be the path of the particle? Calculate its pitch.

Answer:

Motion of Charged Particle When 0°< θ < 90°.

When a charged particle enters in the magnetic field at an angle θ other than 0° and 90°, then its velocity v can be resolved in two perpendicular components as under :

(i) v cosθ — along the magnetic field and

(ii) v sinθ — perpendicular to magnetic field.

Due to the component v cos θ. the path will be straight line while due to component v sinθ, the path will be circular. Hence the resultant path of the particle will become ‘Helical’ as shown in the figure (7.22).

The radius of this helical path,

Pitch of the Helical Path : The distance travelled in one time period along the axis of the helical path is called the pitch of the path therefore,

Pitch = v cosθ × T

or pitch = v cosθ × \(\frac{2 \pi m}{q B}\)

or pitch = \(\frac{2 \pi m v \cos \theta}{q B}\)

Question 5.

Answer:

Question 6.

Show how does a small circular current carrying loop behaves as a magnetic dipole?

Answer:

When current flows through a current carrying loop, then loop behaves as magnetic dipole or bar magnet. Or we may say one face is like magnetic south pole S and second face like north pole N. Face at which current is anticlockwise is north pole and face at which current is clockwise is called south pole.

Question 7.

What is the circulation of magnetic field? Explain.

Answer:

Question 8.

What is the difference in behaviour of a solenoid and magnetic dipole?

Answer:

- In solenoid the magnetic field lines are nearly parallel while outside bar magnet they are curved.
- Outside solenoid, magnetic field is nearly zero while in bar magnet it is along its length.

Question 9.

Calculate the magnetic force due to a current carrying conductor on the unit length of another parallel current carrying conductor.

Answer:

Magnetic Force Acting between Two Current Carrying Parallel Wires

We have studied that magnetic field is produced around the current carrying conductor and a magnetic force is experienced by a current carrying conductor situated in magnetic field. Therefore if two current conductors are placed near each both of them experience a magnetic force.

Suppose two long straight current carrying wires AB and CD having current I_{1} and I_{2} respectively are placed parallel to each other at a distance of r as shown in the diagram. Each wire is situated in magnetic field of other wire, therefore both of them will experience magnetic force.

When the current in both wires is in same direction, then they will experience force of attraction between them and when the currents are in opposite directions, then they experience a force of repulsion between them. The directions of force can be decided by right hand rule (for magnetic field produced) and Fleming’s left hand rule (for force experienced). This force was calculated by applying Biot-Savart’s law and Lorentz’s force therefore this is also known as ‘Ampere’s law’. It can be explained as under : According to Biot-Savart’s law, the magnetic field produced by current I1 in the position of wire CD,

\(B_{1}=\frac{\mu_{0}}{2 \pi} \frac{I_{1}}{r}=\frac{\mu_{0}}{4 \pi} \frac{2 I_{1}}{r} \mathrm{NA}^{-1} \mathrm{m}^{-1}\)

According to Right Hand Palm Rule no.l, the direction of this magnetic field will be normal to plane of the paper inwards. Since wire CD is situated in this field at right angles to field, therefore force acting on CD,

From equations (1) and (2), it is clear that

F_{1} = F_{2} = F

Thus, we can write, the magnetic force between two parallel current carrying wires,

Question 10.

Calculate the magnetic field at any point with the help of Ampere’s law inside a long current carrying cylindrical conductor.

Answer:

Magnetic Field due to Current Carrying Long Cylindrical Conductor :

Suppose in a cylindrical conductor of R radius has a current I flowing in it which is evenly distributed on the whole cross-sectional area. We have to calculate the magnetic field at a distance r perpendicular from this conductor. Due to symmetric distribution of the current it is assumed that the magnetic lines of the magnetic field B will be circular and in concentric circles whose centre will be at axis of the cylinder.

(i) When the point is outside the cylindrical conductor meaning r > R. As shown in the figure (7.44) we discuss on a circular closed path of radius r. On this path at every point the magnetic field is same (constant) and direction along the path. From Ampere’s law,

It is clear that the magnetic field at outside points due to a cylindrical conductor is inversely proportional to the distance.

(ii) When the point is positioned at the surface of the cylindrical conductor meaning r = R.

Keeping the value of r = R in equation (2)

(iii) When the point is inside the cylindrical conductor meaning r < R. According to the figure (7.45) let us consider a cylindrical conductor inside which is a closed circular loop of radius r. From Ampere’s law

Here, the current Σi of the Amperinal loop is also the current of a loop of area nr2. Since the current is uniformly distributed.

∴ r(r < R) radius of the circular path or the current will be the ratio of the area of the circle and πr^{2} cross-sectional area of the conductor.

It is clear that the magnetic field inside a cylindrical conductor is directly proportional to the distance from the axis.

If r = 0 then B = 0

i.e. at axis magnetic field is zero and maximum at the surface.

In the figure (7.46) a graph is shown between the magnetic field and the distance from the axis.

Question 11.

Show that in a cyclotron inside the dee, the time taken to complete half circular path is not dependent on the radius of the path.

Answer:

For cyclotron

\(\frac{m v^{2}}{r}\) = qvB

Here m is mass of charge particle, v is velocity of particle, Bis magnetic field.

∴ Radius of the path

r = \(\frac{m v}{q B}\)

Periodic time, T = \(\frac{2 \pi r}{v}=\frac{2 \pi m}{q B}\)

∴ Time spent in semicircle

\(\frac{T}{2}=\frac{\pi m}{q B}\)

Question 12.

Explain the principle of a cyclotron.

Answer:

Principle

Cyclotron works on the principle that a charged particle moving normal to a magnetic field experiences magnetic Lorentz force due to which the particle moves in a circular path. Cyclotron uses the fact that the frequency of revolution of the charged particle in a magnetic field is independent of its energy. Here, the magnetic field moves the charged particles in a circular path and electric field increases their energy in each frequency.

The mathematical principle is given by the Lorentz force in both perpendicular electric and magnetic field :

\(\vec{F}=q \vec{E}+q(\vec{v} \times \vec{B})\)

Question 13.

What is the sensitivity and figure of merit of a galvanometer? What is the relation between them?

Answer:

Sensitivity of Galvanometer

That galvanometer is more sensitive; in which a small current when flowing in the coil or small voltage when applied at its ends the necessary deflection is noted.

Figure of Merit of a Galvanometer

The figure of merit of a galvanometer is the current required to produce a deflection of one division in the galvanometer scale. This is inversely proportional to the sensitivity of the galvanometer.

Question 14.

Calculate the resistance of the shunt which is to be connected in parallel to convert a galvanometer into an ammeter of desired range.

Answer:

Shunt

If in any galvanometer current is flowing more than its limit, then the heat generated by the current is so much that it can burn the galvanometer. Apart from this the relative deflection generated due to the current flowing can break the pointer or twist it.

To overcome these difficulties, one attaches a small resistance called shunt, in parallel with the galvanometer coil, so that most of the current passes throught the shunt. Generally, shunt is made up of copper wire; its resistance relative to the galvanometer is very small. Hence by using shunt, the current flowing in the galvanometer can be controlled. Figure (7.37) shows a galvanometer using shunt.

By the use of shunt most of the part of electric current passes through the shunt. Hence, the current flowing through the galvanometer is that much by which it is safe.

If in the figure (7.37) I is the main current and the necessary current in the galvanometer for maximum deflection is I_{g} then current passing through the shunt S is I – I_{g}

Since, shunt and galvanometer are attached in parallel hence, there would be same potential difference.

∴ I_{g}G = I_{s}S (G is the resistance of the coil of the galvanometer)

It is clear from equation (10) the value of I_{g} is \(\left[\frac{S}{S+G}\right]\) part of main current. On the basis of equation (10) expected range galvanometer can be made.

Question 15.

A rectangular current carrying conductor EFGH is shown in the figure which is kept in a uniform magnetic field.

(a) What is the direction of magnetic torque?

(b) When the working torque on the conductor is :

(i) maximum?

(ii) zero?

Answer:

(a) According to right hand rule, the direction of magnetic moment will be perpendicular to plane of paper inwards.

(b) (i) When θ = 90°, then

τ_{max} = NIABsin90°

τ_{max} = NIAB

(ii) When θ = 0°

τ_{min} = 0

### RBSE Class 12 Physics Chapter 7 Long Answer Type Questions

Question 1.

Explain Biot-Savart’s law. Derive the magnetic field generated by a straight and finite length current carrying conductor with the help of this law. Show that the magnetic field at a perpendicular distance d from an infinite length current carrying conductor is B =\(\frac{\mu_{0} I}{2 \pi d}\)

Answer:

Biot-Savart’s Law

Biot-Savart law was given by French Physicist Biot and Savart on the basis of experiments done by them for the calculation of magnitude of magnetic field at any point due to a current carrying conducting wire. Here, we shall study the relation between current and the magnetic field it produces.

Figure 7.2 shows a conductor wire XY carrying p. current I. Consider an infinitesimal element dl of the conductor. The magnetic field dB due to this element is to be determined at a point P which is at a distance of r from it. Let θ be the angle between dl and the position Fig. 7.2 : Biot Savart’s Law vector r. Direction of vector \(\overrightarrow{d l}\) is in the direction of current.

According to Biot-Savart’s Law : The magnitude of the magnetic field \(d \overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) :

i) is directly proportional to the current I.

\(| \overrightarrow{d B |}\) ∝ I ………….. (1)

(ii) is directly proportional to the element length

\(|\overrightarrow{d B |} \propto| \overrightarrow{d l} |\) ……………….. (2)

(iii) is directly proportional to the sine of the angle between vector \(\vec{r}\) and \(\overrightarrow{d l}\) that is sinθ

\(| \overrightarrow{d B |}\) ∝ sin θ ………………. (3)

(iv) is inversely proportional to the square of the distance r.

Here, μ is called the permeability of free space (or vacuum). If there is some other medium around the conducting wire, then the magnitude of the magnetic field will be;

\(|\overrightarrow{d B}|=\frac{\mu_{m}}{4 \pi} \frac{I|\overrightarrow{d l}| \sin \theta}{r^{2}}\) ………….. (7)

Where, μ = μ_{0}μ_{r} is the permeability of a specific medium; which is dependent on the medium.

∴ μ_{r} =\(\frac{\mu_{m}}{\mu_{0}}\) = Relative permeability

Vector form : From equation (7),

It is clear from the equation (8) that the direction of \(\overrightarrow{d B}\) will be perpendicular to the surface formed by \(\overrightarrow{d l}\) and \(\vec{r}\) and would be up and down depending on the Right Handed Cork Screw Rule. In the figure (7.2) the direction of \(\overrightarrow{d B}\) at point P is downwards perpendicular to the surface, and is represented by (X) sign whereas at point P’ the direction of \(\overrightarrow{d B}\) is outwards perpendicular to the surface of the paper and represented by (.) sign.

Magnetic Field due to a Straight Current Carrying Wire of Infinite Length

Since, the length of the wire is infinite, hence the ends x and y are at infinite distance. Therefore, the

internal angle made by them at point P would be

ϕ_{1} = ϕ_{2} = \(\frac{\pi}{2}\)

Therefore, from equation (7) magnetic field due to a straight current carrying wire of infinite length,

Question 2.

Derive the expression for magnetic field at a point situated at the axis of current carrying loop using Biot-Savart’s law in the vector form. Make necessary diagram also.

Answer:

Magnetic Field

We have seen in chapter 1 that a stationary charge sets up an electric field in the space surrounding it and this electric field exerts a force F = qE on the test charge q placed in the magnetic field. If magnetic single poles existed then magnetic field would also be defined by this simple formula. But magnetic single poles do not exist. Hence, we have to use some other method for describing magnetic field. It is very clear by experiments that the force exerted on a test charge by the magnetic field in a stationary position is zero; also that if the test charge is moving parallel to the magnetic field then there is no force exerted on it by the magnetic field. If at any place electric field is absent (and gravitational force is neglected) and at that place a moving test charge experiences a force perpendicular to its velocity then at that place magnetic field \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) is present. Magnetic field is a vector quantity.

Magnetic field can be defined as the magnetic force acting on a charged particle moving in a magnetic field. If q coulomb charge is moving with velocity \(\vec{v}\) in a magnetic field \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) then the force acting on it in the absence of electrcic field is given by following relation :

Here, θ is the angle between \(\vec{v}\) and \(\vec{B}\) and \(\hat{\mathrm{n}}\) is the unit vector along the direction of \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}\).

From equation (1)

\(|\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}|\) = qvBsinθ

If θ = 90° then F_{max} = qvB

or B = \( \frac{F_{\max }}{q v}\) …………… (2)

In equation (2), if

q = 1 C and v = 1 m/s then

B = F_{max}

i. e., “At any place the magnitude of the magnetic field is equal to the resultant force acting on a unit charge moving with a unit velocity at that place when the charge is moving perpendicular to the magnetic field.”

Magnetic field is a vector quantity. Its unit in S.I. system is Weber/m^{2} which is also called Telsa

Its unit in C.G.S. system is Maxwell/cm^{2} or Gauss. The relationship between Tesla and Gauss is shown given below;

1 Tesla (T) = 10^{4} Gauss (G)

Dimensional formula of \(\vec{B}\) is [M^{1}L^{0}T^{-2}A^{-1}] .

Magnetic field is also known as intensity of magnetic field or magnetic flux density etc.

Stationary charge only generates electric field. Whereas moving charge generates both electric field and magnetic field.

Magnetic field similar to electric field also follows principle of superposition.

Question 3.

Write the working of cyclotron. Draw the arrangement diagram showing the path of accelerated charged particles (ions) within the Dees A Derive the following parameters off cyclotron :

(i) Frequency of cyclotron

(ii) Kinetic energy of ions in cyclotron.

Answer:

Construction

Cyclotron consists of two-semicircular disc-like metal containers (which are as the letter D), D_{1} and D_{2}, which are called dees. Figure (a) shows the view of a cyclotron. The diameter of these dees is

approximately same and are placed at very small interval. The cyclotron uses both electric and magnetic fields in combination to increase the energy of charged particles. As the fields are perpendicular to each other they are called ‘crossed fields’.

Inside the metal boxes the particle is shielded and is not acted on by the electric field. The magnetic field, however acts on the particle and makes it go around in a circular path inside a dee. Every time the particle moves from one dee to another. It is acted upon by the electric field. The whole assembly is evacuated to minimise collisions between the ions and the air molecules. A high frequency alternating voltage is applied to the dees. Magnetic field acts perpendicular to the plane of dees.

Working : A radio frequency oscillator generates approximately 10^{4} V voltage and 10^{6} Hz frequency alternating voltage. Positive ions or positively charged particles (as protons) are released at the centre P. They move in a semi-circular path in one of the dees and arrive in the gap between the dees in a time interval T/2; where T is the period of revolution.

As shown in the figure when any charged particle enters the dees from the ion source then due to the perpendicular magnetic field it does motion in a circular path. Suppose at any instant t, D_{1} is positive and D_{2} is negative and positive ion completes its semi-circular path in D_{1} and moves towards D_{2} and its energy increases by qV. The time taken by the particle to do motion in D_{1} is T/2. The alternating voltage in a cyclotron is so adjusted that as any charged particle completes its semicircular path in a dee; the polar effect of the alternating voltage changes. The particle also does motion in a circular path in D_{2} due to the perpendicular magnetic field. In this way a charged particle does two times motion in a magnetic field in one cycle and its energy increases by 2qV. As energy increases, the radius of the circular path also increases, hence the time period is kept constant.

The frequency of the applied voltage is so adjusted that the polarity of the dees is reversed in the same time that it takes the ions to complete one half of the revolution. The requirement is called resonance condition.

The ions are repeatedly accelerated across the dees until they have the required energy to have a radius approximately that of the dees. They are then deflected by a magnetic field and leave out the system via an exit slit.

Mathematical Analysis

The necessary centripetal force for the circular path of the particle in a cyclotron is obtained from the perpendicular magnetic field;

The value of this frequency should be equal to the frequency of applied alternating voltage. Hence, this is also called cyclotron frequency.

Angular frequency of the cyclotron

ω = 2πv = \(\frac{q B}{m}\) …………. (5)

It is clear from the equation (2), (4) and (5) that the time period, time in semi-circle and angular frequency of charged particle in a cyclotron are constant. (For constant value of B) i.e., they are not dependent on the speed of the particle and radius of the path.

Kinetic energy of the particle

When the radius of the circular path is same as the radius of the dees, then the kinetic energy is maximum of the particle.

Hence, from equation (7);

If total number of circular cycles are N and V is applied potential difference. Gained energy in one complete cycle is 2qV, then the total kinetic energy in N cycles will be :

E = N × energy in one cycle

E = N × 2qV = 2qVN ………… (9)

On comparing equations (8) and (9)

Question 4.

Obtain the expression for force acting on the current conductor in magnetic field. Give the right hand palm rule for the direction of this force.

Answer:

Force on Current Carrying Conductor in a Magnetic Field

When a conducting wire is kept in a uniform magnetic field then the free electrons (in the conducting particle) flow with velocity v_{d} and experience Lorentz force \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}=q\left(\overrightarrow{v_{d}} \times \vec{B}\right)\). Hence, a resultant force works on the conductor.

According to the figure suppose the length of the current carrying conductor is l and the cross-sectional area is A. The number of electrons in the unit volume of the conductor is n. Hence, total charge in the conductor is q = neAl.

\(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}=I(\vec{l} \times \overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}})\) …………. (1)

Suppose, I magnitude current is flowing in the conductor; and conductor rod makes an angle θ with the magnetic field \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) .

If the free electrons are moving with speed v_{d} then magnitude of magnetic force on them

Here, the direction of \(\vec{l}\) is in the direction of the current of the conductor.

It is clear from the equation (2) that the direction of force on the current carrying conductor is perpendicular to the plane formed by \(\vec{l}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\)

(according to Right Hand Screw Rule).

Right Hand Palm Rule : According to Right Hand Palm Rule if we stretch our right hand palm in such a way that the thumb points in the direction of electric points in the direction of electric current I and the fingers points towards magnetic field \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\); then the force acting on the conductor \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}\) will be perpendicular to the palm as shown in the figure (7.29).

Question 5.

Derive the expression for force and torque acting on the current carrying coil placed in magnetic field. Give necessary diagram. When the torque will be maximum and minimum?

Answer:

Force and Torque on a Current Carrying Rectangular Loop in Uniform Magnetic Field

Suppose ABCD is a rectangular loop, in which current I is flowing in anticlockwise direction. Loop is situated in a uniform magnetic field \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) and the rotational axis of the loop is perpendicular to \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\). Length of the loop is l and breadth is b. (Figure 7.32.)

Suppose, at any instant the vector area \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{A}}\) (perpendicular drawn at the plane conducting loop makes an angle θ with the magnetic field \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\). All the four sides of the loop behave as a current carrying conductor in the magnetic field. Hence, magnetic force will work on them. On all the sides the magnetic force is calculated as follows.

(i) Force on side BC : Since BC = b, hence the force \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{1}=I(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{b}} \times \overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}})\). The direction of \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{1}\) is given by right hand screw rule and is vertically upwards.

(ii) Force on side DA : Force \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{2}=I(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{b}} \times \overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}})\) will act on this side, whose direction will be vertically downwards.

(iii) Force on side AB : The length of the side BC is l and this side is perpendicular to the magnetic field.

Force on this;

\(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{3}=I(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{b}} \times \overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}})\)

\(\left|\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{3}\right|\) = IlBsin90° = IlB

The direction of \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{3}\) is perpendicular to the plane

of the paper and inwards.

(iv) Force on the side CD : This side is also perpendicular to \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) and CD = l. Therefore, force on this;

\(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}_{4}}=I(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{l}} \times \overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}})\)

\(\left|\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{4}\right|\) = IlB

The direction of \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{4}\) is perpendicular to the plane of the paper and outwards.

Hence, it is clear that the forces \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{1}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{2}\) working on the loop are along the rotational axis of the loop but in opposite direction, hence they cancel out each other. As a result there is no vertical displacement in the loop. Also \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{1}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{2}\) are linear hence there is no torque generated by them.

Forces \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{3}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{4}\) are also same in magnitude but opposite in direction, hence their resultant force is also zero. But the line of action of those forces is different and these forces are working at a distance b. Therefore, they together force a couple torque which tries to rotate the loop in anti clockwise direction.

In this way the resultant force on a rectangular loop of all the forces acting is zero.

\(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}=\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{1}+\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{2}+\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{3}+\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}}_{4}=0\)

Hence, there is no type of transfer motion in the loop.

Question 6.

Write Ampere’s law. Obtain the expression for magnetic at the axis of long solenoid giving the necessary diagram.

Answer:

Ampere’s Circuital law : According to Ampere’s circuital law, “Line integral of magnetic field around a closed curve is equal to times the net current passing through the closed curve.” Mathematically it can be written as given below :

\(\oint \vec{B} \cdot \overrightarrow{d l}=\mu_{0} \Sigma I\) ………….. (1)

Magnetic field at the axis of current carrying solenoid :

A solenoid is a coil of enameled or insulated wire in a corkscrew shape wrapped around a rod-shaped armature usually made of Iron. The solenoid’s length is large compared to its radius. It consists of a long wire would in the form of a helix where the neighbouring turns are closely spaced. So each turn can be regarded as a circular loop.

The turns of the wire in a solenoid are uniformly wounded around, its length in which the plane of each turn is approximately perpendicular to the surface of the solenoid. When constant current flows through the solenoid magnetic field is generated. The plane of each turn of an ideal solenoid is perpendicular to the axis of the solenoid.

To understand the magnetic field generated by a solenoid help can be taken from the magnetic field of any current carrying coil. Figure (7.48) shows two similar current carrying conductor loops in which same current is flowing and the magnetic field generated by them. It can be seen here that for points (like P) which are on the axis or close to the axis, the magnetic field direction is in same direction for both the coils but for points (like Q) which are at the distance from the axis the fields are in opposite directions. A solenoid can be taken as a group of many such circular turns. Figure (b) shows the magnetic field lines for a finite solenoid. In which the magnetic field is in the same direction whereas oppose each other. In this way, magnetic field on the outside points is weak. As the turns as closer this behaviour increases hence for an ideal solenoid, it is assumed that the magnetic field inside it is uniform althrough and outside it is zero.

Question 7.

Obtain the expressions for sensitivity and figure of merit of galvanometer giving its principle. On what factors does it depend?

Answer:

Sensitivity of Galvanometer

That galvanometer is more sensitive; in which a small current when flowing in the coil or small voltage when applied at its ends the necessary deflection is noted.

Current Sensitivity

The current sensitivity of the galvanometer is the deflection per unit current. It is measured in div./amp.

From equation 2;

It is clear from the equation (5) that to increase the current sensitivity of the galvanometer the cross sectional area A of the coil, number of turns N of the coil and the magnetic field B has to be more and the value of C has to be less. The value of N, A and B cannot be increased more because due to this the weight of the coil will increase. .

Hence, to increase the sensitivity it is more relevant to decrease the value of C.

Since, C = \(\frac{\pi \eta r^{4}}{2 l}\)

where, η is the elasticity constant of the substance of the wire, r is the radius of the wire and l is the length of the wire.

For Phosphor-Bronze the value of r| is less. Hence, to increase the current sensitivity of the Galvanometer a thin long wire of Phosphor-Bronze is used. But due to the thin suspended wire there is more risk of breaking, hence this galvanometer is not portable.

Voltage Sensitivity

Voltage sensitivity is defined as the deflection per unit voltage. Hence, voltage sensitivity;

V_{S} = \(\frac{\phi}{V}\) …………….. (6)

If G is the resistance in the coil of the galvanometer and I is the current flowing then;

V = IG

Figure of Merit of a Galvanometer

The figure of merit of a galvanometer is the current required to produce a deflection of one division in the galvanometer scale. This is inversely proportional to the sensitivity of the galvanometer.
