  2. Will a current be always induced whenever there is change in magnetic flux?

  3. Can electric current be induced in a closed loop held stationary in the very strong magnetic field between the north and south poles of two permanent fixed magnets?

  4. A closed loop enters normally to the constant electric field between the plates of a large capacitor, moves wholly inside the field and then comes out of the field. Is a current induced in the loop
    1. when it is entering the field
    2. when it is wholly inside the region between the capacitor plates
    3. when it is leaving the field?

  5. A conducting loop is placed near a solenoid as shown in figure 6. Find the direction of the induced current in the loop

    2. after the switch has been closed for a long time,
    3. at the instant the switch is opened.

  6. A rectangular loop and a circular loop are moving out of a uniform magnetic field with a constant velocity v as shown in figure 7. Explain the variation of induced emf during the passage out of the field? The field is normal to the loops.

  13. A copper plate is first pushed into a magnetic field and then pulled out of it. In which motion, there will be an opposing force acting on the plate?

  14. Two identical circular coaxial coils carry equal currents in the same direction. If the coils are brought closer, what will happen to the currents in them?

  15. A circular conducting coil moves normal to the electric field between the plates of a capacitor. Will there be a current induced in the coil when it moves:
    1. wholly inside the plates of the capacitor
    2. partially outside the plates of the capacitor?
