Question 14: NCERT Solutions for 12th Class Physics: Chapter 4-Moving Charges and Magnetism
Two concentric circular coils X and Y of radii 16 cm and 10 cm, respectively, lie in the same vertical plane containing the north to south direction. Coil X has 20 turns and carries a current of 16 A; coil Y has 25 turns and carries a current of 18 A. The sense of the current in X is anticlockwise, and clockwise in Y, for an observer looking at the coils facing west. Give the magnitude and direction of the net magnetic field due to the coils at their centre.
The concentric coils are in the plane north to south. Let us decide the directions with conveniences in the plane of paper.
Magnetic field at centre due to coil X
So, a magnetic field nearly 1.6 × 10-3 T will appear at centre of the circular coil directed towards west.
