## FAQs on Class 10 Science Chapter 12 Practice Question Answers - Magnetic Effects of Current

 1. What is the magnetic effect of current?
Ans. The magnetic effect of current refers to the phenomenon where a current-carrying conductor produces a magnetic field around itself. This magnetic field can affect nearby magnetic materials or other current-carrying conductors.
 2. How is the magnetic effect of current related to electromagnetism?
Ans. The magnetic effect of current is one of the fundamental principles of electromagnetism. When an electric current flows through a conductor, it creates a magnetic field around the conductor. This relationship between electricity and magnetism forms the basis of electromagnetism.
 3. How can the direction of a magnetic field produced by a current-carrying conductor be determined?
Ans. The direction of the magnetic field produced by a current-carrying conductor can be determined using the right-hand rule. If you point your right thumb in the direction of the current, the curled fingers of your right hand will indicate the direction of the magnetic field lines.
 4. What is the difference between a permanent magnet and an electromagnet?
Ans. A permanent magnet is a material that has its own persistent magnetic field, whereas an electromagnet is a magnet created by passing an electric current through a coil of wire. The magnetic field of an electromagnet can be controlled by varying the current, whereas the magnetic field of a permanent magnet is fixed.
 5. How is the magnetic effect of current used in everyday life?
Ans. The magnetic effect of current is used in various everyday applications. Some examples include electric motors, generators, transformers, loudspeakers, and magnetic levitation systems. These devices rely on the interaction between magnetic fields and current-carrying conductors to function.
