If we double the radius of a current carrying coil keeping the current unchanged. what happens to the magnetic field at its Centre?
B2=(1/2) x B1,
Magnetic field is halved.
A circular arc of metallic wire subtends an angle π/4 at center. If it carries current I and its radius of curvature is r, then the magnetic field at the center of the arc is
B = μoiπ/4πR
Substituting the value of theta = π/4
So, Magnetic Field = μoIπ/π(4r x 4)r
=> B = μoI/16r
The magnetic field B on the axis of a circular coil at distance x far away from its centre are related as:
= ∫μoidlR/4πr2r== (μoiR/4πr3) ∫dl
= (μoiR/4πr3)2πR= μoiR2/2(R2+x2)3/2
[=B ∝ x-3]
Two concentric coils carry the same current in opposite directions. The diameter of the inner coil is half that of the outer coil. If the magnetic field produced by the outer coil at the common centre are 1 T, the net field at the centre is
The magnetic field due to current element depends upon which of the following factors:
From Biot-Savart law, magnetic field at a point p, B= (μ0/4π)∫ [(Idl×r)/ r3]
where r is the distance of point p from conductor and I is the current in the conductor.
Thus magnetic field due to current carrying conductor depends on the current flowing through conductor and distance from the conductor and length of the conductor.
A circular coil of radius r carries current I. The magnetic field at its center is B. at what distance from the center on the axis of the coil magnetic field will be B/8
Magnetic field at centre= μ0i/2r
Put r= √3
Hence, √3R distance from the centre magnetic field is equal to magnetic field at centre
A circular loop of radius 0.0157 m carries a current of 2 A. The magnetic field at the centre of the loop is
The magnetic field due to a circular loop is given by:
A straight conductor carrying current I is split into circular loop as shown in figure a , the magnetic induction at the center of the circular loop is
The magnetic field at the center O due to the upper side of the semicircular current loop is equal and opposite to that due to the lower side of the loop.
The magnetic field due to circular coil of 200 turns of diameter 0.1m carrying a current of 5A at a point on the axis of the coil at a distance 0.15m from the center of the coil will be
Wire of length l, carries a steady current I. It is bent first to form a circular coil of one turn. The same wire of same length is now bent more sharply to give two loops of smaller radius the magnetic field at the centre caused by the same current is
Let the radii be r1 and r2 respectively.
Since there are two turns of radius r2, r1=2r2
Magnetic field B at the centre of the coil of radius r1 B1=μoi/2r1=μoi/4r2
Magnetic field B at the center of the coil of radius r2 B2=2×μoi/2r2
∴ B2/B1 =(2× μoi/2r2)/(μoi /4r2) =4
Hence the answer is option C, four times its initial value.
