Q. 15. A coil consisting of 100 circular loop with a radius of 0.6 m carries a current of 5 A. At what distance from the centre, along the axis, the magnetic field magnitude 1/8 as great as it is at the centre?

Solution:

Here,

Number of turns, N = 100

Radius of coil, a = 0.6 m

Current, I = 5 A

Axial distance, X = ?

Given that

Magnetic field at axial point = $\frac{1}{8}$× Magnetic field at the centre

Or, $\frac{{{\mu }_{o}}NI{{a}^{2}}}{2{{({{a}^{2}}+{{x}^{2}})}^{3/2}}}$ = $\frac{1}{8}$×$\frac{{{\mu }_{o}}NI}{2a}$

Or, (a2 + x2 )3/2 =  8a3

Or, a2 + x2  =  82/3  (a3)2/3

Or, x2  =  4a2 – a

Or, x2 = 3a2

Or, x = $\sqrt{3{{a}^{2}}}$

Or, x = $\sqrt{3\times {{0.6}^{2}}}$

Or, x = 1.039 m

The solenoid has 1000 turns per meter and carries a steady current I. Calculate I if the force on the wire is equal to 10–4 N (${{\mu }_{o}}$ = 4$\pi$×10–7 Hm–1)

Solution:

Here,

Length of the wire, l = 5 cm = 5×10–2 m

Current in the wire, Iw = 2 A

Angle between wire and magnetic field due to solenoid,$\theta$ = 90o

Number of turns per unit length, n = 1000 m–1

Current through the solenoid, Is = ?

Force experienced by wire, Fw = 10–4 N

${{\mu }_{o}}$ = 4$\pi$×10–7 Hm–1

We have,

Fw = Bs Iw lw sin$\theta$………(i)

Also, magnetic field due to solenoid, Bs = ${{\mu }_{o}}$n Is

From equation (i),

Fw = ${{\mu }_{o}}$n Is× Iw lw sin$\theta$

Is = $\frac{{{F}_{w}}}{{{\mu }_{o}}n{{I}_{w}}{{l}_{w}}sin{{90}^{o}}}$

Is = $\frac{{{10}^{-4}}}{4\pi \times {{10}^{-7}}\times 1000\times 2\times 5\times {{10}^{-2}}\times 1}$ = 0.796 A

Q.No. 17. Two long parallel conductors carry respectively currents of 12A and 8A in the same direction. If the wires are 10 cm apart, find where a third parallel wire also carrying a current must be placed so that the force experienced by it will be zero.

Solution:

Here,

The current through conductor A, I1 = 12 A

The current through conductor B, I2 = 8 A

Distance between them, d = 10 cm = 0.1m

Let the current through conductor C = I

For zero force,

FAC = FBC

Or, $\frac{{{\mu }_{o}}{{I}_{1}}I}{2\pi x}$= $\frac{{{\mu }_{o}}{{I}_{2}}I}{2\pi (0.1-x)}$

Or, 12(0.1-x) = 8x

Or, 12×0.1–12x = 8x

Or, 20x = 12 × 0.1

Or, x = $\frac{12\times 0.1}{20}$

Or, x = 0.06 m from first conductor.

Where,

$\tau$ = Torque

B = Magnetic field

I = current in the coil

${{\tau }_{d}}$ = ${{\tau }_{R}}$

or, BINA  =  C$\theta$

where, $\theta$ = deflection in galvanometer

C = torsion constant

(i) Current sensitivity

It is defined as the deflection per unit current.

We have,

C. $\theta$ =  BINA

$\frac{\theta }{I}$  = $\frac{BNA}{C}$

$\therefore$ current sensitivity, SI  = $\frac{BNA}{C}$

(ii) Voltage sensitivity

It is defined as the deflection per unit potential difference.

We have,

C.$\theta$ =  BINA

$\frac{\theta }{I}$  = $\frac{BNA}{C}$

$\frac{\theta }{IR}$  = $\frac{BNA}{CR}$

$\frac{\theta }{V}$  = $\frac{BNA}{CR}$

$\therefore$ Voltage sensitivity, SV = $\frac{BNA}{CR}$

Q. 18. The coil of a moving coil galvanometer has 50 turns and its resistance is 10$\Omega$. It is replaced by a coil having 100 turns and resistance 50$\Omega$. Find the factor by which the current and voltage sensitivities change.

Solution:

Here,

Case-1:

Number of turns, N1 = 50 turns

Resistance of coil of galvanometer, R1 = 10$\Omega$

Case-2:

Number of turns, N2 = 100 turns

Resistance of coil of galvanometer, R2 = 50$\Omega$

(i) Factor by which current sensitivity change, $\frac{{{({{S}_{I}})}_{2}}}{{{({{S}_{I}})}_{1}}}$= ?

(ii) Factor by which voltage sensitivity change, $\frac{{{({{S}_{V}})}_{2}}}{{{({{S}_{V}})}_{1}}}$= ?

For current sensitivity,

Case-1:

(SI)1 = ${{\left( \frac{\theta }{I} \right)}_{1}}$= $\frac{BI{{N}_{1}}A\,cos\theta }{C}$…… (i)

Case-2:

(SI)2 = ${{\left( \frac{\theta }{I} \right)}_{2}}$= $\frac{BI{{N}_{2}}A\,cos\theta }{C}$…… (ii)

Dividing equation (ii) by (i), we get

$\frac{{{({{S}_{I}})}_{2}}}{{{({{S}_{I}})}_{1}}}$ = $\frac{{{N}_{2}}}{{{N}_{1}}}$= $\frac{100}{50}$= 2

For voltage sensitivity,

Case-1:

(Sv)1 = ${{\left( \frac{\theta }{V} \right)}_{1}}$= $\frac{BI{{N}_{1}}A\,cos\theta }{C{{R}_{1}}}$…… (iii)

Case-2:

(Sv)2 = ${{\left( \frac{\theta }{V} \right)}_{2}}$= $\frac{BIN{}_{2}Acos\theta }{C{{R}_{2}}}$…… (iv)

Dividing equation (iv) by (iii), we get

$\frac{{{({{S}_{V}})}_{2}}}{{{({{S}_{V}})}_{1}}}$= $\frac{{{N}_{2}}}{{{R}_{2}}}$×$\frac{{{R}_{1}}}{{{N}_{1}}}$

Or, $\frac{{{({{S}_{V}})}_{2}}}{{{({{S}_{V}})}_{1}}}$= $\frac{100}{50}$×$\frac{10}{50}$

$\therefore$  $\frac{{{({{S}_{V}})}_{2}}}{{{({{S}_{V}})}_{1}}}$= $\frac{2}{5}$

Q. 19. Two galvanometers which are otherwise identical are fitted with different coils. One has a coil of 50 turns and resistance 10$\Omega$ while the other has 500 turns and a resistance of 600$\Omega$. What is the ratio of the deflection when each is connected in turns to a cell of emf 25 V and internal resistance 50$\Omega$ ?

Solution:

Here,

Case-1:

Number of turns, N1 = 50 turns

Resistance of coil of galvanometer, R1 = 10$\Omega$

Case-2:

Number of turns, N2 = 500 turns

Resistance of coil of galvanometer, R2 = 600$\Omega$

Ratio of deflection, $\frac{{{\theta }_{1}}}{{{\theta }_{2}}}$= ?

Emf, E = 25 V

Internal resistance of the cell, r = 50$\Omega$

Using circuit formula, E = I (R + r)

Case-1,

E = I1 (R1 + r)

Or, I1 = $\frac{E}{{{R}_{1}}+r}$

Or, I1 = $\frac{25}{10+50}$

Or, I1 = $\frac{5}{12}$A

Case-2,

E = I2 (R2 + r)

Or, I2 = $\frac{E}{{{R}_{2}}+r}$

Or, I2 = $\frac{25}{600+50}$

Or, I2 = $\frac{1}{26}$A

Now, we know that

Restoring torque = Applied (deflecting) torque

From case-1, C${{\theta }_{1}}$ = B I1N1A cos$\theta$ ………..(i)

From case-2, C${{\theta }_{2}}$ = B I2N2A cos$\theta$ ………..(ii)

Dividing equation (i) by (ii)

$\frac{{{\theta }_{1}}}{{{\theta }_{2}}}$= $\frac{{{I}_{1}}{{N}_{1}}}{{{I}_{2}}{{N}_{2}}}$

Or,   $\frac{{{\theta }_{1}}}{{{\theta }_{2}}}$= $\frac{5}{12}$×26×$\frac{50}{500}$

$\therefore$   $\frac{{{\theta }_{1}}}{{{\theta }_{2}}}$= $\frac{13}{12}$

The emf developed across the width of the strip is measured to be 17.9 $\mu$V. Calculate the free electron density in the silver.

Solution:

Here,

Width, b = 1.5 cm = 1.5 ×10–2 m

Thickness, t = 1.5 mm = 1.5 ×10–3 m

Current, I = 150 A

Magnetic field, B = 2 T

Hall voltage, VH = 17.9 $\mu$V = 17.9×10–6 V

Free electron density, n = ? We know,

Hall voltage, V=$\frac{{{B}_{Z}}I{}_{X}}{net}$

Or, n = $\frac{{{B}_{Z}}{{I}_{X}}}{{{V}_{H}}et}$

Or, n = $\frac{2\times 150}{17.9\times {{10}^{-6}}\times 1.6\times {{10}^{-19}}\times 1.5\times {{10}^{-3}}}$

$\therefore$ Free electron density, n = 6.98×1028 m–3

When a current of 75 A flows through it, a potential difference of 0.81 $\mu$V is developed between the edges of the slab. Find the concentration of the mobile electrons in copper.

Solution:

Here,

Thickness, t = 2 mm = 2 ×10–3 m

Width, b = 1.5 cm = 1.5 ×10–2 m

Magnetic field, B = 0.4 T

Current, I = 75 A

Hall voltage, VH = 0.81 $\mu$V = 0.81×10–6 V

Concentration of mobile electrons, n = ? We know,

Hall voltage, V= $\frac{{{B}_{Z}}I{}_{X}}{net}$

Or, n = $\frac{{{B}_{Z}}{{I}_{X}}}{{{V}_{H}}et}$

Or, n = $\frac{0.4\times 75}{0.81\times {{10}^{-6}}\times 1.6\times {{10}^{-19}}\times 2\times {{10}^{-3}}}$

$\therefore$ Concentration of mobile electrons, n = 1.16×1029 m–3

Calculate the number of free charge carriers per unit volume assuming that each has a charge of 1.6×10–19 C.

Solution:

Here,

Thickness, t = 2.5 mm = 2.5 ×10–3 m

Current, I = 150 mA = 150 ×10–3 A

Magnetic field, B = 0.5 T

Hall voltage, VH = 8.75 mV = 8.75×10–3 V

Number of free electrons per unit volume, n = ?

Charge of electron, e = 1.6×10–19 C We know,

Hall voltage, V= $\frac{{{B}_{Z}}I{}_{X}}{net}$

Or, n = $\frac{{{B}_{Z}}{{I}_{X}}}{{{V}_{H}}et}$

Or, n = $\frac{0.5\times 150\times {{10}^{-3}}}{8.75\times {{10}^{-3}}\times 1.6\times {{10}^{-19}}\times 2.5\times {{10}^{-3}}}$

$\therefore$ Number of free electrons per unit volume, n = 2.143×1022 m–3
