# A capacitor of ca

Given:

Capacitance(C) = 100 μF = 10-4 F

Initial Voltage of battery(V) = 20 V

Number of turns per meter of solenoid(n) = 4000

Final potential difference(V’) = 90% of 20 V = 18 V

Time taken(t) = 2 s

Formula used:

Initial charge stored in capacitor(Q) = CV,

where C = capacitance, V = potential difference

Therefore Q = (10-4 x 20) C = 2 x 10-3 C

New potential difference = V’ = 18 V

Therefore, New charge Q’ = CV’ = (10-4 x 18) = 1.8 x 10-3 C

Hence, current flowing in conductor(i) = (Q-Q’)/t, where Q = initial charge, Q’ = final charge, t = time taken

Therefore, i = = 10-4 A

Thus, average magnetic field at the center of solenoid = B = μ0ni,

where μ0 = magnetic permeability of vacuum = 4π x 10-7 T m A-1, n = number of turns per unit length, i = current carried by the wire

Hence, from given data, B = (4π x 10-7 x 4000 x 10-4) T

= 0.5 x 10-6 T (Ans)
