Give two factors by which the voltage sensitivity of a moving coil galvanometer can be increased. What happens if a voltmeter is connected in series to the circuit? What is the magnitude of magnetic force per unit length on a wire carrying a current of 8 A and making an angle of 30 with the direction of a uniform magnetic field of 0.15 T. Where on the earth's surface is the th value of angle of dip maximum? Which has larger susceptibility: Iron or copper? What hat are magnetic lines of force? force Write down its any two properties. A closely wound solenoid 80 cm long has 5 layers of winding of 400 turns each. The diameter of the solenoid is 1 8 cm. If the current carried is 8.0 A, estimate the magnitude of centre. inside the solenoid near its

Define the term magnetic inclination. Deduce the relation connecting the horizontal component and inclination with the help of a diagram. State tangent law. Two tangent galvanometers have circular coils of the same radii, differing only in their number of turns. They are connected in series. When a steady current is passed in the circuit, the means deflections in the galvanometers are 1, 2. Dedue an expression for the ratio of the number of turns of the galvanometers. Derive Biot-Savart law and define the unit of current. How is the pivoted galvanometer converted in to ammeter and voltmeter?
