The diagram shows a coil of wire wound on a soft iron core forming an electromagnet. A current is passed through the coil in the direction indicated by the arrows. Mark the N and S-poles produced in the iron core.


Answer :

By using the clock face rule which states that "When an observer, looking at the face of the coil, finds the current to be flowing in the anti-clockwise direction, then the face of the coil will behave like the North Pole. While if the current is in the clockwise direction, the face of the coil will behave like South Pole.

South Pole: A


North Pole: B
