Revision Notes on Magneto-static and Magnetic Effect of Current
Magneto-static:- It is the study of magnetic fields in systems where the currents are steady (not changing with time). It is the magnetic analogue of electrostatics, where the charges are stationary.
Magnitude of magnetic force between two poles (Coulomb’s law in magnetism):-
F = (µ0/4π) (m1m2/r2)
Here µ0 is called the absolute magnetic permeability of free space.
µ0= 4π×10-7 Wb A-1 m-1
Magnetic field:- Magnetic field, of any magnetic pole, is the region (space) around it in which its magnetic influence can be realized.
Lines of Force (Flux Lines):- Line of force is the path along which a unit north pole would move if it were free to do so.
Properties of magnetic lines of force:-
(a) Lines of force are directed away from a north pole and are directed towards a south pole. A line of force starts from a north pole and ends at a south pole if they are isolated poles.
(b) Tangent, at any point, to the magnetic line of force gives the direction of magnetic intensity at that point.
(c) Two lines of force never cross each other.
Magnetic Dipole:- A combination of two isolated , equal and opposite magnetic poles separated by a small distance constitutes a magnetic dipole.
Magnetic Moment:- Magnetic moment M of a magnetic dipole is defined as the product of its pole strength and the magnetic length. M = m×2l
Torque in Magnetic field:- ?
Work done in rotating a magnetic dipole in a magnetic field:- W = MB (cosθ1 – cosθ2)
Potential Energy of a magnetic dipole in a magnetic field:-
Magnetic moment (M):- M = I×A
Other formulae of M:-
(a) M = nIπr2
(b) M= eVr/2 = er2ω/2 = er2 2πf/2 = er2 π/T
(c) M = nµB
Resultant magnetic moment :-
(a) When two bar magnets are lying mutually perpendicular to each other, then, M = √[M12+M22] = √2 mpI
(b) When two coils, each of radius r and carrying current i, are lying concentrically with their planes at right angles to each other, then M = √[M12+M22] = [√2I]πr2 If M1 = M2
Atoms as a magnetic dipole:-
(a) I = eω/2π
(b) M = eωr2/2
(c) M = n (eh/4πm)
The term eh/4πm is called Bohr’s magneton. It is the smallest value of magnetic moment which an electron can possesss.
Magnetic flux density at a distance from a magnetic dipole in free space:- B= (µ0/4π) (m1/r2)
Force:- F = (µ0/4π) (m1 m2/r2)
Magnetic intensity at any point due to a magnetic pole in free space:- F = (µ0/4π) (m/r2)
(a) Point situated on the axial line (End-on position):-
F = (µ0/4π) [2Mr/(r2-l2)2]
In case of a magnetic-dipole, F = (µ0/4π) [2M/r3]
(b) Point situated on equatorial line (Broad side-on position):-
F = (µ0/4π) [M/(r2+l2)3/2]
In case of a magnetic-dipole, F = (µ0/4π) [M/r3]
(c) Point situated anywhere:-
F= (µ0/4π) [M/r3] √1+3 cos2θ
Direction, tan β = ½ tan θ

Bar magnet placed in a magnetic meridian:-
(a) North pole facing north of earth:-
B = (µ0/4π) [M/(r2+l2)3/2]
At neutral points, B=H
So, H = (µ0/4π) [M/(r2+l2)3/2]
(b) North pole facing south of earth:-
B = (µ0/4π) [2Mr/(r2-l2)2]
So, H = (µ0/4π) [2Mr/(r2-l2)2]
Intensity of magnetization (I):-
Intensity of magnetization (I), is defined as the magnetic moment (M) developed per unit volume (V) of the specimen, when subjected to a uniform magnetic field.
I = M/V = m/a
Here m is the pole strength and a is the area of the specimen.
Relation between magnetic field (B) and field intensity (H):- B = H+4πI
Permeability (µ):- It is defined as the ratio between magnetic induction to the strength of magnetic field. µ = B/H
(a) For paramagnetic and ferromagnetic substances, B > H. So, µ > 1
(b) For diamagnetic substances, B < H. So, µ < 1
Susceptibility (k):- Susceptibility of a magnetic substance is defined as the ratio between intensity of magnetization (I) to the strength of magnetic field (H). k = I/H
Relation between µ and k:- µ = 1+4πk
For substances which get magnetized in the direction of magnetic field,
(a) I is positive
(b) k is positive
(c) B > H
(d) µ > 1
(a) I is negative
(b) k is negative
(c) B < H
(d) µ < 1
Magnetic Substance:- A substance which is affected by a magnetic field is called a magnetic substance.
(a) Diamagnetic substances:- Diamagnetic substances are those substances which are repelled by the magnets.
Example- antimony, bismuth, lead, tin, zinc, mercury, gold, phosphorus
(b) Paramagnetic substances:- Paramagnetic substances are those substances which are weakly attracted by the magnets.
Example-aluminium, platinum, oxygen, manganese, chromium
(c) Ferromagnetic substances:- Ferromagnetic substances are those substances which are strongly attracted by the magnets.

?B = µnAH
Here, µ is the permeability of the medium, n is the number of turns, A is the area and H is the magnetic field intensity.

This signifies, no magnetic flux is linked with surface when the field is parallel to the surface.
(b) When θ = 0º, cosθ = 1. So,( ?B)max = 1
This signifies, magnetic flux linked with a surface is maximum when area is held perpendicular to the direction of field.
