  • Q1

    Biot-Savart law indicates that the moving electrons (velocity v) produce a magnetic field B such that

    B || v

    B ⊥ v

    it is along the line joining the electron and point of observation

    it obeys inverse cube law

  • Q2

    Two charged particles traverse identical helical paths in a completely opposite sense in a uniform magnetic field B = B0k.

    They have equal z-components of momenta

    They must have equal charges

    They necessarily represent a particle- antiparticle pair

    The charge to mass ratio satisfy: (e/m)1+(e/m)2=0

  • Q3

    0.45 ampere-m²

    0.3 ampere-m²

    0.6 ampere-m²

    0.15 ampere-m²

  • Q4

    The conversion of a moving coil galvanometer into a voltmeter is done by

    introducing a resistance of small value in parallel

    introducing a resistance of large value in parallel

    introducing a resistance of small value in series

    introducing a resistance of large value in series.

  • Q5

    An electron is projected with uniform velocity along the axis of a current carrying long solenoid. Which of the following is true? 

    The electron will experience a force at 45° to the axis and hence execute a helical path.

    The electron will be accelerated along the axis.

     The electron path will be circular about the axis.

    The electron will continue to move with uniform velocity along the axis o fthe solenoid

  • Q6

    In a cyclotron, a charged particle 

    speeds up between the dees because of the magnetic field.

     undergoes acceleration all the time.

    speeds up in a dee.

    slows down within a dee and speeds up between dees.

  • Q7

    If a charged particle moves through a magnetic field perpendicular to it

    momentum is constant but energy changes.

    energy is constant but momentum changes.

    momentum as well as energy are constant.

    both momentum and energy of particle change.

  • Q8

    A circular current loop of magnetic moment M is in an arbitrary orientation in an external magnetic field B. The work done to rotate the loop by 30° about an axis perpendicular to its plane is 





  • Q9

    A rectangular loop carrying a current i is situated near a long straight wire such that the wire is parallel to the one of the sides of the loop and is in the plane of the loop. If a steady current I is established in wire as shown in figure, the loop will

    Question Image

    move towards the wire.

    rotate about an axis parallel to the wire.

    remain stationary.

    move away from the wire or towards right.

  • Q10

    A cubical region of space is filled with some uniform electric and magnetic fields. An electron enters the cube across one of its faces with velocity v and a positron enters via opposite face with velocity -v. At this instant,

     the magnetic forces on both the particles cause equal accelerations.

    Only electron gains or looses energy.

    the electric forces on both the particles cause identical accelerations.

    the motion of the centre of mass (CM) is determined by E alone.

  • Q11

    Consider a wire carrying a steady current, I placed in a uniform magnetic field B perpendicular to its length. Consider the charges inside the wire. It is known that magnetic   forces do not work. This implies that,

     If the wire moves under the influence of B, no work is done by the electric force on the ions, assumed fixed within the wire.

    motion of charges inside the conductor is unaffected by B, since they do not absorb energy.

    if the wire moves under the influence of B, no work is done by the force.

     Some charges inside the wire move to the surface as a result of B.

  • Q12

    4960 Ω

    2010 Ω

    5040 Ω

    4050 Ω

  • Q13

    Two identical current carrying coaxial loops, carry current I in an opposite sense. A simple amperian loop passes through both of them once. Calling the loop as C,

    B vanishes everywhere on C.

    the value of ∮CB.dl is independent of sense of C. c

     there may be a point on C where, B and dl are parallel

     ∮CB.dl = ± 2µ0I
