Q. 115.0( 4 Votes )

A force of 8N acts on a rectangular conductor 20cm long placed perpendicular to a magnetic field. Determine the magnetic field induction if the current in the conductor is 40A.

Answer :

We know that Force applied on a wire in a magnetic field is given by

F = BIL


Where;


B = Magnetic field;


I = Current in the wire;


L = Length of the wire;


In our question B = ?;


I = 40A;


L = 20cm = 0.2m (1m = 100cm);


F = 8N;


8 = B x 40 x 0.2;


8 = B x 8;



Magnetic field induction is 1 Tesla
