2.The diagram shows the
rectangular loop PQRS of a simple electric motor placed in a
uniform magnetic field of flux density B.

3.The diagram shows an
arrangement that is used to determine the magnetic flux density
between the poles of a magnet.
The magnet is
placed on a sensitive top pan balance. A current-carrying wire is placed at
right angles to the magnetic field between the poles of the magnet. The force
experienced by the current-carrying wire is equal but opposite to the force
experienced by the magnet. The magnet
is pushed downward when the wire experiences an upward force.
The length of
the wire in the magnetic field is 5.0 cm. The balance reading is 102.00 g when
there is no current in the wire. The balance reading increases to 103.14 g when
the current in
the wire is 8.2 A.
