Explanation: Ampere law states that the line integral of H about any closed path is exactly equal to the direct current enclosed by that path. ∫ H.dl = I The point form will be Curl (H) = J.
The Ampere law is based on which theorem?
Explanation: The proof of the Ampere’s circuital law is obtained from Stoke’s theorem for H and J only.
Electric field will be maximum outside the conductor and magnetic field will be maximum inside the conductor. State True/False.
Explanation: At the conductor-free space boundary, electric field will be maximum and magnetic field will be minimum. This implies electric field is zero inside the conductor and increases as the radius increases and the magnetic field is zero outside the conductor and decreases as it approaches the conductor.

Find the current density on the conductor surface when a magnetic field H = 3cos x i + zcos x j A/m, for z>0 and zero, otherwise is applied to a perfectly conducting surface in xy plane.
Explanation: By Ampere law, Curl (H) = J. The curl of H will be i(-cos x) – j(0) + k(-z sin x) = -cos x i – zsin x k. In the xy plane, z = 0. Thus Curl(H) = J = -cos x i.

Explanation: By Ampere law, Curl(H) = J. The rotational path of H is zero, implies the curl of H is zero. This shows the current density J is also zero. The current is the product of the current density and area, which is also zero.
Find the magnetic field intensity when the current density is 0.5 units for an area up to 20 units.
Explanation: We know that ∫ H.dl = I. By Stoke’s law, we can write Curl(H) = J. In integral form, H = ∫ J.ds, where J = 0.5 and ds is defined by 20 units. Thus H = 0.5 x 20 = 10 units.
The divergence of which quantity will be zero?
Explanation: The divergence of the magnetic flux density is always zero. This is because of the non existence of magnetic monopoles in a magnetic field.
Find the charge density when the electric flux density is given by 2x i + 3y j + 4z k.
Explanation: The charge density is the divergence of the electric flux density by Maxwell’s equation. Thus ρ = Div (D) and Div (D) = 2 + 3 + 4 = 9. We get ρ = 9 units.
Find the Maxwell equation derived from Faraday’s law.
Explanation: From the Faraday’s law and Lenz law, using Stoke’s theorem, we get Curl(E) = -dB/dt. This is the Maxwell’s first law of electromagnetics.

Explanation: From the current density definition and Ohm’s law, the Ampere circuital law Curl(H) = J can be derived. This is Maxwell’s second law of electromagnetics.
The Faraday’s law states about which type of EMF?
Explanation: The stationary loop in a varying magnetic field results in an induced emf due to the change in the flux linkage of the loop. This emf is called as induced or transformer EMF.
In which of the following forms can Maxwell’s equation not be represented?
Explanation: Maxwell equations can be represented in differential/point form and integral form alternatively. Sometimes, it can be represented by time varying fields called harmonic form.
The charge build up in the capacitor is due to which quantity?
Explanation: The charge in the capacitor is due to displacement current. It is the current in the presence of the dielectric placed between two parallel metal plates.
In metals which of the following equation will hold good?
Explanation: Generally, the Curl(H) is the sum of two currents- conduction and displacement. In case of metals, it constitutes conduction J and in case of dielectrics, it constitutes the displacement current dD/dt.
Find the flux enclosed by a material of flux density 12 units in an area of 80cm.
