Question 1.
A bar magnet is placed in a uniform magnetic field such that its magnetic moment makes angle α with the direction of $$\overrightarrow{\mathbf{B}}$$. Derive a expression for its potential energy.
Potential Energy of a Magnetic Dipole
As τ = MB sinθ
If the dipole is rotated against the action of this torque, work has to be done. This work is stored as potential energy of the dipole.
The work done in turning the dipole through a small angle dθ is
dW = τdθ = MB sinθdθ
If the dipole is rotated from an initial position θ = θ1 to the final position θ = θ2, then the total work done will be
W = $$\int d W=\int_{\theta_{1}}^{\theta_{2}} M B \sin \theta d \theta=-M B[-\cos \theta]_{\theta_{1}}^{\theta_{2}}$$
= -MB(cosθ2 – cosθ1)
This work done is stored as the potential energy U of the dipole.
∴ U = -MB(cosθ2 – cosθ1)
The potential energy of the dipole is zero when
$$\vec{M} \perp \vec{B}$$. So the potential energy of the dipole in any orientation θ can be obtained by putting θ1 = 90° and θ2 = θ in the above equation.
∴ U = -MB(cosθ – cos 90°)
or U = -MBcosθ = – M. B

1. the paramagnetic rod sets itself parallel to the field, and
2. the diamagnetic rod itself perpendicular to the field.

Question 3.
Why do we get two neutral points for a bar magnet? Can we obtain only one neutral point? Why?
Neutral point is the point where the magnetic field due to magnet is equal and opposite to the horizontal component of earth’s magnetic field. The resultant magnetic field at the neutral point is zero. In this way two neutral points are obtained.

On placing the north pole or south pole of bar magnet downwards in vertical position, we found out only one neutral point whose position is from north pole to south or south towards north.

Question 4.

Question 5.
A bar magnet is placed in parallel to a magnetic field $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}$$. Its magnetic moment is $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{M}}$$. How much work will be done by magnetic moment to make it perpendicular to magnetic field?
Given, θ1 = 0°
later θ2 = 90°
W = MB(cosθ1 – cosθ2)
= MB( cos 0°- cos 90°)
= MB( 1 – 0)
⇒ W = MB (maximum unstable condition)

Question 6.
Define angle of declination and angle of dip?
Angle of declination : The angle between the geographical meridian and the magnetic meridian at a place is called the magnetic declination at that place.
Angle of dip : The angle made by the earth’s total magnetic field $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}$$ with the horizontal direction in
the magnetic meridian is called angle of dip (δ) at any place.

Question 7.

Curie-Weiss law : Above the Curie point i.e., in the paramagnetic phase, the susceptibility varies with temperature as
Xm = $$\frac{C^{\prime}}{T-T_{C}}$$ (T > TC)
Where C’ is a constant. This is modified Curie’s law for a ferromagnetic material above the Curie temperature. It is also known as Curie-Weiss law.
Curie temperature for iron is 1043 K.

Question 8.

Magnetic Field Lines or Magnetic Lines of Force
The path made by a compass needle in going it from one end of the bar magnet to another end, then magnetic lines of force may be defined as the curve, the tangent at any point gives the direction of the magnetic field at that point. It may also be defined as the path along which a unit north pole would tend to move if free to do so. Magnetic lines of force are shown in figure 8.7. Properties

1. The magnetic field lines of a magnet forms continuous closed loops.
2. They start in air from the N-pole and end at the S-pole and then return to the N-pole through the interior of the magnet.
3. The tangent to the field line at a given point represents the direction of the net magnetic field B at that point.
4. The magnetic field lines do not intersect each other. If they do so, that would mean there are two directions of the magnetic field at the point of intersection, which is impossible.
5. The larger the number of field lines crossing per unit area, the stronger is the magnitude of the magnetic field. Near from poles, the magnetic field is stronger and far from poles, the magnetic field is weak.
6. In uniform magnetic field, magnetic field lines are at parallel and at same distance.

Question 9.
What are the behaviour of diamagnetic, paramagnetic and ferromagnetic substances in non-uniform magnetic field?

1. When placed in a non-uniform magnetic field, a diamagnetic substance moves from stronger to the weaker parts of the field.
2. When placed in a non-uniform magnetic field, a paramagnetic substance moves from weaker to the stronger parts of the field.
3. When a ferromagnetic substance is placed in non-uniform magnetic field, it moves from weaker to the stronger parts of the field.

Question 10.
What is Gauss’s law in magnetism? What does it represent?
Gauss’s law in magnetism : It states that the surface integral of the magnetic field ($$\vec{B}$$) over a closed surface S is equal zero.
$$\oint \vec{B} \cdot \overrightarrow{d S}=0$$
Gauss’s law indicates that there are no sources or sinks of magnetic field inside a closed surface.

Question 11.
Magnetic lines of force form closed curve. Why?
The direction of magnetic field lines outside magnet is from N to S pole while inside is S to N pole. So they form closed magnetic field lines.

Question 12.
Compare the magnetic fields of a bar magnet and current carrying solenoid.

1. Both when hang freely stops in N-S direction.
2. Both attract magnetic substances.
3. Both have two poles-N pole and S pole.
4. Like poles repel and unlike poles attract in both of them.
5. Both show phenomenon of induction.

Dissimilarities

 Bar Magnet Solenoid 1. Magnetism is strong at its ends and minimum at middle. They have uniform magnetism inside while at ends it is feeble. 2. Polarity remain constant. Polarity at ends depends on direction of flow of current. 3. They have stable magnetism. Its magnetism depends on the value of flowing current.

Question 13.
Explain the possible cause of earth’s magnetism.
Our planet’s magnetic field is believed to be generated deep down in the earth’s core. The coroiolis force, resulting from the earth’s spin also causes swirling whirl pools. This flow of liquid iron generates electric current, which in turn produce magnetic fields.

Question 14.
What are the uses of hysteresis curve?
A study of B-H loops reveals the following informations :
(i) For a given H, B is more for soft iron than steel. So soft iron has a greater permeability.
(ii) As permeability of soft iron is greater than steel, so soft iron has a greater susceptibility than steel. (iii) The retentivity of soft iron is greater than the retentivity of steel.
(iv) The coercivity of soft iron is less than the coercivity of steel.

Question 15.
Deduce the expression for magnetic dipole moment of a bar magnet placed in a uniform magnetic field at angle θ. When is it maximum?
Torque on a Bar Magnet in Uniform Magnetic Field ;
Consider a bar magnet NS of dipole length 2l placed in a uniform magnetic field $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}$$. Let m be the pole strength of its each pole. Let the magnetic axis of the bar magnet make an angle θ with the magnetic field $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}$$, as shown in figure 8.17 (b). Force on N-pole = mB, along $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}$$
Force on S-pole = mB, opposite to $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}$$
The force on the two poles are equal and opposite. They form a couple, moment of couple or torque is given by relation
τ = force × perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation
= mB × 2lsinθ
= (m × 2l)Bsinθ
or τ = MBsinθ ……………. (1)
where, M = m × 2l is the magnetic dipole moment of the bar magnet.
In vector notaion, $$\vec{\tau}=\vec{M} \times \vec{B}$$ ……………. (2)
Special Cases :
(i) When bar magnet is parallel to magnetic field (θ = 0), then
τ = MBsin0 = 0
(ii) When bar magnet is perpendicular to magnetic field (θ = 90°), then
τmax = MB sin 90°= MB
The dirction of the torque $$\vec{\tau}$$ is given by the right hand screw rule as indicated in the figure 8.18. The effect of the torque $$\vec{\tau}$$ is to make the magnet align itself parallel to the field $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}$$. That is why a freely suspended magnet aligns itself in the N-S direction because the earth has its own magnetic field which exerts a torque on the magnet tending it to align along the field.

Definition of Magnetic Dipole Moment: If in equation (1), B = 1, θ = 90° , then τ = M
Hence the magnetic dipole moment may be defined as the torque acting on a megnetic dipole placed perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field of unit strength,

Question 1.
Name and define three elements required to specify the earth’s magnetic field at a given place. Draw a labelled diagram to define these elements.
Elements of Earth’s Magnetism
The earth’s magnetic field at a place can be completely described by three parameters which are called elements of earth’s magnetic field. They are :
(i) Angle of declination
(ii) Angle of dip
(iii) Horizontal component of earth’s magnetic field.

(i) Angle of Declination : The angle between the geographical meridian and the magnetic meridian at a place is called angle of declination at that place. Geographic meridian is the vertical plane passing through the geographical north and south poles. While magnetic meridian is the vertical plane passing through the magnetic axis of a freely suspended small magnet.

Magnetic declination arises because the magnetic axis of the earth does not coincide with its geographic axis.
By knowing declination, we can determine the vertical plane in which the earth’s magnetic field lies. In India, the value of angle of declination is small. It is 0°41′ E for Delhi and 0°58′ W for Mumbai. (ii) Angle of dip : The angle made by the earth’s total magnetic field $$\vec{B}$$ with the horizontal direction in the magnetic meridian is called angle of dip at any place. The angle of dip is different at different places on the surface of the earth. The angle between the horizontal and the final direction of the dip needle gives the angle of dip at that given location.

At the magnetic equator, the dip needle rests horizontally so that the angle of dip is zero at the magnetic equator. The dip needle rests vertically at the magnetic poles so that the angle of dip is 90° at the magnetic poles. At all other places, the dip angle lies between 0° and 90°.

(iii) Horizontal component of earth’s
magnetic Held : It is the component of the earth’s total magnetic field $$\vec{B}$$ in the horizontal direction in the magnetic meridian. If θ is the angle of dip at any place, then the horizontal component of earth’s field $$\vec{B}$$ at that place is given by and tanθ = $$\frac{B_{V}}{B_{H}}$$
or BV = BH tanθ …………. (3)

Question 2.
What do you mean by magnetic hysteresis curve? Draw hysteresis curve and define terms related to it.
Magnetic Hysteresis Curve
The relation between B and H in ferromagnetic materials is complex. It is often not linear and it depends on the magnetic history of the sample. Figure 8.31 depicts the behaviour of the material as we take it through one cycle of magnetisation. Let the material be unmagnetised initially. We place it in a solenoid and increase the current through the solenoid. (Figure 8.30). The magnetic field B in the material rises and saturates as depicted in the curve Oab. This behaviour represents the alignment and merger of domains until no further enhancement is possible. It is pointless to increase the current (and hence the magnetic intensity H) beyond this. Next, we decrease H and reduce it to zero. At H = 0, B ≠ 0. This is represented by the curve Oc. The value of B at H = 0 is called retentivity or remanence. In figure 8.31, BR ~ 1.2 T, where the subscript R denotes retentivity. The domains are not completely randomised even though the external driving field has been removed. Next, the current in the solenoid is reversed and slowly increased. Certain domains are flipped until the net field inside stands nullified. This is represented by the curve cd. The value of H at d is called coercivity. As the reversed current is increased in magnitude, we once again obtain saturation. The curve Od depicts this. Next, the current is reduced (curve ef) and reversed (curve eb). The cycle repeats itself. Note that the curve Ob does not retrace itself as H is reduced. For a given value of H, B is not unique but depends on previous history of the sample. This phenomenon is called hysteresis.

Ferromagnetic materials can be divided into two categories. 1. Soft ferromagnetic materials
2. Hard ferromagnetic materials Soft ferromagnetic materials have narrow hysteresis loop. Consequently, they have low retentivity, low coercivity and low hysteresis loss. But they have high relative magnetic permeability. Hard ferromagnetic materials have wide hysteresis loop. Consequently, they have high retentivity, high coercivity and large hysteresis loss.

A study of B-H loops reveals the following informations :
(i) For a given H, B is more for soft iron than steel. So soft iron has a greater permeability.
(ii) As permeability of soft iron is greater than steel, so soft iron has a greater susceptibility than steel. (iii) The retentivity of soft iron is greater than the retentivity of steel.
(iv) The coercivity of soft iron is less than the coercivity of steel.

Question 3.
Explain paramagnetism and specify its characteristics. Write five differences between diamagnetic and paramagnetic substance.
Paramagnetic Substances
Paramagnetic substances are those which develop feable magnetisation in the direction of the magnetising field. Such substances are feebly attracted by magnets and tend to move from weaker to stronger parts of a magnetic field. Examples : Aluminium (Al), chromium (Cr), manganese, (Mn), platinum (Pt), Ca, Sb, Na, Li, Mg Tungsten, copper chloride, salt solution etc.

Explanation of Paramagnetism
According to Langevin, the atoms or molecules of a paramagnetic material possess a permanent magnetic moment either due to the presence of some unpaired electron or due to the non-cancellation of the spins of two electrons because of special reason. In the absence of an external magnetic field, the atomic dipoles are randomly oriented due to their ceaseless random motion, as shown in figure 8.27 (a). There is no net magnetisation.

When a strong enough field is applied and the temperature is low enough, the field tends to align the atomic dipoles in its own direction, producing a weak magnetic moment in the direction of magnetic field. The material tends to move from a weak field region to a strong field region. This phenomenon is paramagnetism. When a paramagnetic material is placed in a magnetic field, the lines of force prefer to pass through it than through the surrounding air i. e., the lines of force get slightly more concentrated inside the material, as shown in figure. When a glass pot containing a paramagnetic liquid is placed over two closely lying opposite poles of magnet, the liquid accumulates and elevates in the middle and thins out near the poles. When the poles are moved apart the field at the poles becomes stronger than that at the centre and the liquid moves towards the poles.

Experimentally, the intensity of magnetisation of a paramagnetic substance is proportional to magnetic field B0 and inversely proportional to temperature T.  Diamagnetic Substances
Diamagnetic substances are those which develop feable magnetisation in the opposite direction of the magnetising field. Such substances are feebly repelled by magnets and tend to move from stronger to weaker parts of a magnetic field.

Examples : Cu, Zn, Sb, Bi, Hg, H2, N2, Au, Ag, Pb, air water, diamond silicon, quartz, alcohol, marble, glass, helium, argon, salts like sodium choride etc.

Explanation of Diamagnetism
The simplest explanation for diamagnetism is as follows. Electrons in an atom orbiting around nucleus possess orbital angular momentum. These orbiting electrons are equivalent to current-carrying loop and thus possess orbital magnetic moment. Diamagnetic substances are those in which resultant magnetic moment in an atom is zero. When magnetic field is applied, those electrons having orbital magnetic moment in the same direction slow down and those in the opposite direction speed up. This happens due to induced current in accordance with Lenz’s law, which you will study later. Thus, the substance develops a net magnetic moment in opposite direction to that of the applied field and hence repulsion.

The most exotic diamagnetic materials are super conductors. These are metals, cooled to a very low temperature which exhibits both perfect conductivity and perfect diamagnetism. Here the field lines are completely expelled. The susceptibility Xm of diamagnetic materials is small and negative. The relative permeability μr(1 + Xm) is positive but less than 1 for a diamagnetic material. A superconductor repels a magnet and is repelled by the magnet. The phenomenon of perfect diamagnetism in superconductors is called the Meissner effect. When a glass pot containing a diamagnetic liquid is placed between two closely lying (3 – 4 mm apart) poles of a magnet, the liquid is found to move towards the poles causing a depression in the middle. This indicates that the field is stronger in the middle than that near the poles. Now if the poles are moved apart sufficiently, the magnetic field at the middle becomes weaker than that near the poles. Consequently the liquid accumulates in the middle and becomes thin near the poles. Question 4.
What is Curie temperature? How magnetic susceptibility of dia, para and ferro magnetic substances depend on temperature? Explain and write essential law for it.
Curie Law and Curie Temperature
The magnetic susceptibility of a paramagnetic material varies inversely as the absolute temperature, where, C is a constant called the Curie constant and this equation is known as Curie’s law.
The susceptibility of ferromagnetic material decreases with temperature in accordance with Curie-Weiss law.
Xm = $$\frac{C}{T-T_{C}}$$ ……………… (1)
here, TC is Curie temperature of Ferromagnetic substances.
Curie Temperature : The temperature of transition from ferromagnetism to paramagnetism is called the Curie temperature TC. Table 1 lists the Curie temperatures of certain ferromagnets. The susceptibility above the Curie temperature i.e., in the paramagnetic phase is described by
X = $$\frac{C}{T-T_{C}}$$ (T > TC)
Table 1: Curie Temperature Tc of some Ferromagnetic Materials

 Material Tr (K) Cobalt 1394 Iron 1043 Nickel 631 Gadolinium 317

Question 5.
How will you select materials for making electromagnets and permanent magnets? Write their uses also.
The material used for making cores of electromagnets should have high initial permeability, low retentivity. Electromagnets are used in telephone, electric bell, electric motor, dynamo, communication and they are also used to separate magnetic substances from mixtures.

The material used for making permanent magnets must have high retentivity, high coercivity and high permeability. They are used in galvanometer, ammeter, voltmeter and loudspeaker.

Suitable materials for making permanent magnets are
Cobalt steel : Fe + Co + W+ Cr + Mn + C
Carbon steel : Fe + C + Mn
Alnico : Fe + Al + Ni + + Co + Cu
Ticonal : Co + Fe + Ni + Al + Ti + Cu

The material used for making cores of transformers must have high initial permeability, low hysteresis loss and low retentivity. Permalloy is best alloy for this. Also transformer steel (4% silicon in soft iron), Mumetal (Fe + Cu + Ni + Mn) are also used in making transformer core.

Electromagnet: As shown in figure 8.33, take a soft iron rod and wind a large number of turns of insulated copper wire over it. When we pass a current through the solenoid, a magnetic field is set up in the space within the solenoid. The high permeability of soft iron increases the field one thousand times. The end of the solenoid at which the current in the solenoid seems to flow anticlockwise acts as N pole and other one as S-pole. When the current in the solenoid is switched off, the soft iron rod looses its magnetism almost completely due to its low retentivity.

Properties of Electromagnets
1. The materials which have low retentivity.
2. The materials which have high permeability
Permanent magnets : Permanent magnets are made of the materials which have high retentivity high coercivity and high permeability for Example : Steel. ### RBSE Class 12 Physics Chapter 8 Numerical Questions

An iron rod of 4 cm2 cross-sectional area is parallel to a magnetising field of 103 A/m. If the magnetic flux passing through it is 4 × 10-4 Wb, then find out permeability, relative permeability and magnetic susceptibility of the substance.
Solution:
A = 4cm2 = 4 × 10-4 m2
Magnetising field H = 103A/ m
Magnetic flux ϕ = 4 × 10-4 Wb
ϕ = BA magnetic susceptibility
Xm = μr – 1
= 796.17 – 1
= 795.17 ≈ 795

Question 11.
The radius of a circular coil is 0.05 m and number of turns are 100. If 0.1 A current is flowing through it, then how much work will be done to rotate it 180° against the perpendicular external magnetic field of 1.5 T? Initially the plane of coil is perpendicular to magnetic field.
Solution:
Given, r = 0.05 m; M = 100; I = 0.1 A;
B = 1.5T; θ1 = 0°; θ2 =180°
Work done W = – MB (cosθ2 – cosθ1)
= -NIAB(cosθ2 – cosθ1)
= -NIπr2B(cosθ2 – cosθ1)
= -100 × 0.1 × 3.14 × (0.05)2 × 1.5 × (cos180°- cos 0°)
= 2 × 100 × 0.1 × 3.14 × (0.05)2 × 1.5
= 0.236 J

Question 12.
A coil of length l is in the shape of an equilateral triangle and it is free to rotate in a magnetic field B. $$\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}$$ is in plane of coil. If I current is flowing through coil and it produces a torque τ, then find out side of the triangle.
Solution:
As θ = 90° ### Related
