a) its own magnetic field

b) earth’s magnetic field

c) magnetic field produced due electric current in the coil

d) none of these

Ans: c)

Explanation: c) Magnetic field was produced due to current in the coil, which deflects the magnetic needle.

Q7) Magnetic field produced around the conductor is directly proportional to…..

a) material of conductor

b) earth’s magnetic field

c) thickness of conductor

d) current flowing through conductor.

Ans: d)

Explanation: d) Magnetic field produced around conductor increases due to amount current in the coil.

Q8) Magnetic field produced around the conductor is inversely proportional to…..

a) deflection of needle

b) distance of needle from conductor

c) thickness of conductor

d) current flowing through conductor.

Ans: b)

Explanation: b) Magnetic field produced around conductor decrease with increase in distance of conductor from needle.

b) left hand thumb rule

c) Fleming’s left hand rule

d) Fleming’s right hand rule.

Ans:a)

Explanation: a) The direction of magnetic field produced due to electric current is determined with the help of  Right hand thumb rule.

Q.10) According to right hand thumb rule, the outstretched thumb point towards the direction of….

a) magnetic field

b) deflection of needle

c) current

d) all of these

Ans: c)

Explanation: c) In Right hand thumb rule, outstretched thumb points towards the direction of current.

a) magnetic field

b) deflection of needle

c) current

d) all of these

Ans: a)

Explanation: a) In Right hand thumb rule, the fingers curled around the conductor gives the direction of magnetic field.

Q.12) Select the wrong statement from the following.

a) Deflection in needle kept near coil increase with increase in current.

b) Deflection in needle kept near coil decrease with increase in distance from coil.

c) Deflection in needle kept near coil increase with increase in number of turns in coil.

d) Deflection in needle do not reverses with reversing the direction of current.

Ans: d)

Explanation: d) The deflection in coil reverses due to reverse in direction of current. i.e. change in direction of current changes the direction of magnetic field.
