Question

A short bar Magnet with its north pole facing North forms a neutral point P in the horizontal plane. If the magnet is rotated by 900 in the horizontal plane, the net magnetic induction at P is:

(Horizontal component of earths magnetic field is BH)


A
0
B
2BH
C
52BH
D
5BH
Solution
Verified by Toppr

At P, the equatorial field due to magnet =BH.
After rotation, P lies on the axis of the bar magnet.
Hence, at P, field due to magnet =2BH
Net field is the vector sum of BH and 2BH, both at right angles to each other giving, Bnet=5BH
