Q
Magnetic Effects of Electric Current

Question:

A coil of insulated copper wire is connected to a galvanometer. What will happen if a bar magnet is (i) pushed into the coil, (ii) withdrawn from inside the coil, (iii) held stationary inside the coil?

Answer:

(i) As a bar magnet is pushed into the coil, a momentary deflection is observed in the galvanometer indicating the production of a momentary current in the coil.

(ii) When the bar magnet is withdrawn from the coil, the deflection of the galvanometer is in opposite direction showing the production of an opposite current.

(iii) When the bar magnet is held stationary inside the coil, there is no deflection in galvanometer indicating that no current is produced in the coil.
