1. Suppose a charged particle moves with a velocityv near a wire carrying an electric current. Amagnetic force,
therefore, acts on it. If the same particle is seen from a frame moving with velocityv in the same direction, the
charge will be found at rest. Will the magnetic force become zero in this frame ? Will the magnetic field
become zero in this frame ?
2. Can a charged particle be accelerated by a magnetic field ? Can its speed be increased ?
3. Will a current loop placed in a magnetic field always experiment a zero force ?
4. The free electrons in a conducting wire are in constant thermal motion. If such a wire, carrying no current, is
placed in a magnetic field, is there a magnetic force on each free electron ? On the wire ?
5. Assume that the magnetic field is uniform in a cubical region and is zero outside. Can you project a charged
particle from outside into the field so that the particle describes a complete circle in the field ?
6. An electron beam projected along the positive Xaxis deflects along the positive Yaxis. If this deflection is
caused by a magnetic field, what is the direction of the field ? Can we conclude that the field is parallel to the
Zaxis ?
7. Is it possible for a current loop to stay without rotating in a uniformmagnetic field > If yes, what should be the
orientation of the loop ?
8. The net charge in a currentcarrying wire is zero. Then, why does a magnetic field exert a force on it ?
9. The torque on a current loop is zero if the angle between the positive normal and the magnetic field is either
u = 0 or u = 180. In which of the two orientations, the equilibrium is stable ?
10. Verify that the units weber and voltsecond are the same.
