Q. 16 E4.0( 10 Votes )

Answer the following question:

Magnetic field lines are always nearly normal to the surface of a ferromagnet at every point. (This fact is analogous to the static electric field lines being normal to the surface of a conductor at every point.) Why?

Answer :

The magnetic field lines are always nearly normal to the surface of ferromagnetic materials at every point because permeability of ferromagnetic material is always greater than one.
