Question

# A thin diamagnetic rod is placed vertically between the poles of an electromagnet. When the current in the electromagnet is switched on, then the diamagnetic rod is pushed up, out of the horizontal magnetic field. Hence the rod gains gravitational potential energy. The work required to do this comes from.The lattice structure of the material of the rodThe current sourceThe induced electric field due to the changing magnetic fieldThe magnetic field

A
The magnetic field
B
The lattice structure of the material of the rod
C
The current source
D
The induced electric field due to the changing magnetic field
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### The correct option is B The current sourceHere when electromagnet is connected to battery, emf source the magnetic field is produced which pushes rod upwards and so gravitational potential energy is stored.This stored energy will require work which will come from current source or battery which is connected to electromagnet.So option 2 is correct answer
