QUESTION: 1

### Advanced countries are making use of powerful electromagnets to move trains at very high speed. These trains are called maglev trains (abbreviated from magnetic levitation). These trains float on a guideway and  do not run on steel rail tracks.Instead of using a engine based on fossil fuels, they make use of magnetic field forces. The magnetized coils are arranged in the guide way which repels the strong magnets placed in the train's under carriage. This helps train move over the guideway , a technic called electro-dynamic suspension. When current passes in the coils of guideway , a typical magnetic field is set up between the undercarriage of train and guideway which pushes and pull the train along the guideway depending on the requirement.The lack of friction and its aerodynamic style allows the train to more at very high speed. Q.1. The levitation of the train is due to

QUESTION: 6

In a thin rectangular metallic strip a constant current I flows along the positive x-direction, as shown in the figure. The length, width and thickness of the strip are l, w and d, respectively.A uniform magnetic field is applied on the strip along the positive y-direction. Due to this, the charge carriers experience a net deflection along the z-direction. This results in accumulation of charge carriers on the surface PQRS and appearance of equal and opposite charges on the face opposite to PQRS. A potential difference along the z-direction is thus developed. Charge accumulation continues until the magnetic force is balanced by the electric force. The current is assumed to be uniformly distributed on the cross-section of the strip and carried by electrons.
