Hello Student,
Please find the answer to your question
a) The torque acting on a rectangular coil placed in a uniform magnetic field is given by,\underset{t}{\rightarrow}
But M = N i A and θ = 90° (for moving coil galvanometer)
∴ τ = N i A B sin 90°
⇒ τ = N i A B
But τ = k i (given)
∴ k i = NiAB
⇒ k = NAB
(b) The torsion constant is given by
C = τ / θ = NiAB /θ
Here given that when i = i0, θ = π / 2
∴ C = 2N i0 AB / π ….(i)
(c) We know that angular Impulse
= NAB
= NABQ …(ii)
This angular impulse creates an angular momentum
…(iii)
From (ii) and (iii)
I ω = NAB BQ ⇒ ω = NABQ / I
This is the instantaneous angular momentum due to which the coil starts rotating. Let us apply the law of energy conservation to find the angle of rotation.
Rotational kinetic of coil
= 1 / 2 I N2 A2 B2 Q2 / I = N2 A2 B2 Q2 / 2I
1/ 2 Cθ2max = N2 A2 B2 Q2 / 2I
⇒ θ2max = N2 A2 B2 Q2 / CI = N2 A2 B2 Q2 / 2Ni0 ABI x π
⇒ θ2max = πNABQ2 / 2i0I ⇒ θ2max = Q √NABπ / 2Ii0
