Physics 01 – Electro Magnetic Induction

1. A square loop of side 1 m is placed in a perpendicular magnetic field. Half of the area of the loop lies inside the magnetic field. A battery of emf 10 V and negligible internal resistance is connected in the loop. The magnetic field changes with time according to the relation B = (0.01 – 2t) tesla. The resultant emf of the circuit is

A) 1V 

B) 11V




induced  = – dΦ / dt = – d/dt(BA) = -A dB/dt 

= (l2 / 2  )    ( d(0.01 -2t ) / dt  )   = 1 volt 

∴Resultant emf =10 -1 =9v

2. The direction of induced current in the right loop in the situation shown by the given figure is

(A) along the common axis                                         (B) along xzy
(C) along xyz                                                                    (D) none of these 

2. (C) The induced current in the right loop will be along xyz.

3. The variation of induced emf (ε) with time (t) in a coil if a short bar magnet is moved along its axis with a constant velocity is best represented as

(B) The polarity of emf will be opposite in the two cases while the magnet enters the coil and while the magnetic leaves the coil. Only in option (B) polarity is changing.

4. Figure shows two coils carrying equal currents. The ratio of  magnetic field at P due to coil-1 to coil-2 is

4. ( b)


B1   = (μ0  i  / 2 )              ( 2R) /  2  [ (2R)2  + (2R)2  ]3/2     ;        B2   =         μ0/2      iR2  / 2       [ R2 + R2 ] 3/2


              B1    /   B 2     =  (4/8 )3/2  /   (1/2 √2  )=    4× 2√2 / 8×2√2         =1:2


5.Two circular coils can be arranged in any of three situations as shown in the figure. Their mutual inductance will be

(A)maximum in situation (i)                                              (B) maximum in situation (ii)

(C) maximum in situation (iii)                                           (D)same in all situations

(A)  A mutual inductance occurs when the magnetic field generated by a coil induces a voltage in a secondary coil.

M= ε m    / (  dI/dt  )

Since, in option (A), there is maximum emf is induced in secondary coil. So, mutual inductance is maximum.

6. Shown in the figure is a circular loop of radius r and resistance R. A variable magnetic field of induction B = B is established inside the coil. If the key (K) is closed, the electrical power developed right after closing the switch is equal.

(D)   The induced emf = E = dΦ /dt

                         = d/dt  × (B.A) = A dB/dt

                          = (πr2 )  B (d/dt )× ( e-t) = – πr2 B0 e-t  

⇒ E0 = Bπr2 e -t   | t=0     =Bπr2  

∴ The electrical power developed in the resister just at the instant of closing the key  = p = E02  /R   =B02π2 r4  /R
