SOLVED EXAMPLES
Example 38.1
Figure shows a conducting loop placed near a long straight wire carrying a current i as shown. If the current
increases continuously, find the direction of the induced current in the loop.
Sol. Let us put an arrow on the loop as shown in the figure. The right-hand thumb rule shows that the positive
normal to the loop is going into the plane of the diagram. Also, the same rule shows that the magnetic field
at the site of the loop due to the current is also going into the plane of the diagram. Thus,
B

and
S d

are
along the same direction everywhere so that the flux
}
= u S d B

is positive. If i increases, the magnitude
increases,
dt
du
is positive. Thus, c is negative and hence, the current is negative. The current is, therefore,
induced in the direction opposite to the arrow.
Example 38.2
Figure shows a rectangular loop MNOP being pulled out of a magnetic field with a uniform velocity v by
applying an external force F. The length MNis equal to l and the total resistance of the loop is R. Find (a) the
current in the loop, (b) the magnetic force on the loop, (c) the power delivered by the external force and (e) the
thermal power developed in the loop.

and is opposite to
the velocity. The forces on the parts of the wire NOand PM, lying in the field, cancel each other. The resultant
magnetic force on the loop is, therefore, F

opposite to the velocity..

(c) To move the loop at a constant velocity, the resultant force on it should be zero. Thus, one should pull the
loop with a force

We see that the power delivered by the external force is equal to the thermal power developed in the loop.
This is consistent with the principle of conservation of energy.

An average induced emf of 0.20 V appears in a coil when the current in it is changed form 5.0 A in one

Example 38.4
Consider the circuit shown in figure. The sliding contact is being pulled towards right so that the resistance
in the circuit is increasing. Its value at the instant shown in 12 W. Will the current be more than 0.50Aor less
than it at this instant?

Sol. As the sliding contact is being pulled, the current in circuit charnges. An induced emf e = L

across the inductor. The net emf in the circuit is 6 V = L
