Essential difference between electrostatic shielding by a conducting shell and magnetostatic shielding is due to
A. electrostatic field lines can end on charges and conductors have free charges.
B. lines of B can also end but conductors cannot end them.
C. lines of B cannot end on any material and perfect shielding is not possible.
D. shells of high permeability materials can be used to divert lines of B from the interior region.
Electrostatic shielding is a situation in which the effects of electric field are choked for both the external and internal content. A conducting shell obstructs the effect of external electric field on the contents of the interior whereas the same is also applied for the internal content which as not connection with the external environment.
In case of Magnetostatic Shielding, the object is kept in a cage or barrier made up of high permeability magnetic substance to cease the effect of external magnetic field on the object or to constrict the effect of a magnetic field on the external environment. Unlike the electric shielding, the magnetic field is not completely blocked but passes around the enclosure. Hence, we can only lower the influence of the magnetic field by placing high permeability materials.

There are two current carrying planar coils made each from identical wires of length L. C1 is circular (radius R) and C2 is square (side a). They are so constructed that they have same frequency of oscillation when they are placed in the same uniform B and carry the same current. Find an in terms of R.Physics - Exemplar
Suppose we want to verify the analogy between electrostatic and magnetostatic by an explicit experiment. Consider the motion of (i) electric dipole p in an electrostatic field E and (ii) magnetic dipole m in a magnetic field B. Write down a set of conditions on E, B, p, m so that the two motions are verified to be identical. (Assume identical initial conditions.)Physics - Exemplar

Three identical bar magnets are riveted together at center in the same plane as shown in Fig. 5.1. This system is placed at rest in a slowly varying magnetic field. It is found that the system of magnets does not show any motion. The north-south poles of one magnet is shown in the Fig. 5.1. Determine the poles of the remaining two.Physics - Exemplar
A short bar magnet of magnetic moment M = 0.32 JT–1 is placed in a uniform magnetic field of 0.15 T. If the bar is free to rotate in the plane of the field, which orientation would correspond to its (a) stable, and (b) unstable equilibrium?
