Chapter Physics 19

19.1 Magnetic field


is defined as a region around a magnet where a magnetic force can be experienced. experienced A stationary electric charge is surrounded by an electric field only. only When an electric charge moves, it is surrounded by an moves electric field and a magnetic field. The motion of the electric field charge produces the magnetic field. field Magnetic field has two poles, called north (N) and south (S). (S) This magnetic poles are always found in pairs whereas a single magnetic pole has never been found. Like poles (N-N or S-S) repel each other. Opposite poles (N-S) attract each other.

19.1.1 Magnetic field lines


Chapter Physics 19

Magnetic field lines are used to represent a magnetic field. By convention, magnetic field lines leave the north pole and enters the south pole of a magnet. Magnetic field lines can be represented by straight lines or curves. The tangent to a curved field line at a point indicates the direction of the magnetic field at that point as shown in Figure 19.1. P Figure 19.1

direction of magnetic field at point P.

Magnetic field can be represented by crosses or by dotted circles as shown in Figures 19.2a and 19.2b.

Chapter Physics 19

A uniform field is represented by parallel lines of force. This force means that the number of lines passing perpendicularly through unit area at all cross-sections in a magnetic field are the same as shown in Figure 19.3.

19.1.3 Earths magnetic field

South magnetic pole

The Earths magnetic field is like that of a giant bar magnet as illustrated in Figure 19.8 with a pole near each geographic pole The magnetic poles are tilted away of the Earth. from the rotational axis by an angle of 11.5. Since the north pole of a compass 11.5 needle (Figure 19.8) points toward the south magnetic pole of the Earth, and since opposite attract, it follows that the north geographical pole of the Earth is actually near the south pole of the Earths magnetic field. field

19.1.4 Magnetization of a Soft Iron
Using the permanent magnet One permanent magnet A permanent magnet is bring near to the soft iron and touching the surface of the soft iron by following the path in the Figure 19.9.

Figure 19.9

This method is called induced magnetization. magnetization The arrows in the soft iron represent the magnetization direction with the arrowhead being the north pole and arrow tail being the south pole. It is also known as domains ( the tiny magnetized region because of spin magnetic 12 moment of the electron). electron

Chapter Physics 19
In an unmagnetized piece of soft iron, these domains are arranged randomly but it is aligned in one direction when the soft iron becomes magnetized. The soft iron becomes a temporary magnet with its south pole facing the north pole of the permanent magnet and vice versa as shown in Figure 19.9. Two permanent magnets Bring and touch the first magnet to one end of the soft iron and another end with the second magnet as shown in Figure 19.10.

If you drop a permanent magnet on the floor or strike it with a hammer, you may jar the domains into randomness. The randomness magnet can thus lose some or all of its magnetism. Heating a magnet too can cause a loss of magnetism. The permanent magnet also can be demagnetized by placing it inside a solenoid that connected to an alternating source. source

Chapter Physics 19 19.1.5 Magnetic flux density, B

is defined as the magnetic flux per unit area across an area at right angles to the magnetic field. field Mathematically,

B= A

(19.1)

where

: magnetic flux A : area at right angles to the magnetic field

It also known as magnetic induction (magnetic field intensity OR strength) strength It is a vector quantity and its direction follows the direction of the magnetic field. field Its unit is tesla (T) OR weber per metre squared (Wb m2). Unit conversion :

1 T = 1 Wb m 2 = 10 4 gauss(G )

16

Chapter Physics 19
Example 19.1 :
The direction of any magnetic field is taken to be in the direction that an Earth-calibrated compass points. Explain why this mean that magnetic field lines must leave from the north pole of a permanent bar magnet and enter its south pole. Solution : Near the north pole of a permanent bar magnet, the north pole of a compass will point away from the bar magnet so the field lines leave the north pole. Near the south pole of a permanent bar magnet, the north pole of a compass will point toward the bar magnet so the field lines enter the south pole.
