Question

When a magnetic needle is kept in a non-uniform magnetic field then the needle experiences.
  1. Only a force
  2. A force as well as a torque
  3. Only a torque
  4. Neither a force nor a torque

A
Only a torque
B
A force as well as a torque
C
Only a force
D
Neither a force nor a torque
Solution
Verified by Toppr

In non-uniform magnetic field, unequal forces act on the needle. Hence, the needle experiences a force as well as a torque.
