(v) False

Short Answer Based questions

Question 1
Why two magnetic field lines cannot intersect with each other?
Solution
if two magnetic field lines intersect with each other, then there will be two tangents drawn  which gives direction of magnetic field at the point of intersection. This is not possible

Question 2
Why do we use fuse in series with any electrical appliance? Why should a fuse with defined rating not be replaced by one with larger rating?
Solution
Fuse is used for protecting appliances due to short circuit or overloading. The fuse is rated for a certain maximum current and blows off when a current more than rated value flows through it
If a fuse is replaced by one with large ratings, the appliances may get damaged while the protecting fuse does not burn off.

Question 3
State the rule to determine the direction of force experienced by a current carrying conductor in a magnetic field. How will this force get affected on:
(i) double the magnitude of current?
(ii) Reversing the direction of current flow?
Solution
Fleming's left hand rule
(i) Doubled
(ii) Direction will be reversed

Long Answer type

Question 1.
Arun while studying the force experienced by a current carrying conductor in a magnetic Field records the following observation
(i)The force experienced by the conductor is increases as the current in the conductor is decreased
(ii)The force experienced by the conductor is decreases as the strength of magnetic field is decreased
(iii)Direction of the force on the current carrying conductor is determined suing Fleming Left hand rule
Which of these observations is correct? Explain
Solution
F=iLB
(a) So as current is decreased, Force also decreases. Observation is Incorrect
(b) Again, Force experience is decreased as strength of magnetic field is decreased. Observation is correct
(c) Observation is correct
