Torque acting on a bar magnet kept in a magnetic field →B is τ=→m×→B=mBsinθ
Hence work done in moving from θ=0∘ to θ=60∘ is W=mBcos60∘=12mB
Hence torque acting when magnet is placed at 60∘=√32mB=√3W

A magnetic needle is placed in a uniform magnetic field and is aligned with the field. The needle is now rotated by an angle of 60∘ and the work is W. The torque on the magnetic needle at this position is:
A magnetic needle lying parallel to a magnetic field requires W unit of work to turn it through 60∘. The torque needed to maintain the needle in this position is
A magnetic needle lying parallel to a magnetic field requires W units of work to turn it through 60∘. The torque required to maintain the needle in this position will be
The work required to rotate a magnetic needle by 600from equilibrium position in a uniform magnetic field is W. The torque required to hold it in that position is
The work required to be done in rotating s magnetic needle placed in uniform magnetic field by 600 from.its equilibrium position is W, the torque required so that the needle remains in this position is:-
