AIEEE 2006

In a region, steady and uniform electric and magnetic fields are present. These two fields are parallel to each other. A charged particle is released from rest in this region. The path of the particle will be a
A
helix
B
straight line
C
ellipse
D
circle

Explanation

The charged particle will move along the lines of electric field (and magnetic field). Magnetic field will exert no force. The force by electric field will be along the lines of uniform electric field. Hence the particle will move in a straight line.

AIEEE 2006

Needles ${N_1}$, ${N_2}$ and ${N_3}$ are made of ferromagnetic, a paramagnetic and a diamagnetic substance respectively. A magnet when brought close to them will
A
attract ${N_1}$ and ${N_2}$ strongly but repel ${N_3}$
B
attract ${N_1}$ strongly, ${N_2}$ weakly and repel ${N_3}$ weakly
C
attract ${N_1}$ strongly, but repel ${N_2}$ and ${N_3}$ weakly
D
attract all three of them

Explanation

Ferromagnetic substance has magnetic domains whereas para-magnetic substances have magnetic dipoles which get attracted to a magnetic field. Diamagnetic substances do not have magnetic dipole but in the presence of external magnetic field due to their orbital motion of electrons these substances are repelled.

AIEEE 2005

A charged particle of mass $m$ and charge $q$ travels on a circular path of radius $r$ that is perpendicular to a magnetic field $B.$ The time taken by the particle to complete one revolution is
A
${{2\pi {q^2}B} \over m}$
B
${{2\pi mq} \over B}$
C
${{2\pi m} \over {qB}}$
D
${{2\pi qB} \over m}$

Explanation

Equating magnetic force to centripetal force.

${{m{V^2}} \over r} = qvB\,\sin \,{90^ \circ }$

Time to complete one revolution.

$T = {{2\pi r} \over v} = {{2\pi m} \over {qB}}$

AIEEE 2005

A uniform electric field and a uniform magnetic field are acting along the same direction in a certain region. If an electron is projected along the direction of the fields with a certain velocity then
A
its velocity will increase
B
Its velocity will decrease
C
it will turn towards left of a direction of motion
D
it will turn towards right of direction of motion

Explanation

Due to electric field, it experiences force and decelerates i.e. its velocity decreases.
