A Question from Magnetic Effects of Current

Gavin Pinto asked

“A current carrying wire is placed above a magnetic needle. What do you observe? If you want to increase this effect, what will you do? If you want to reverse the effect, what will you do?”

 

Ans: When a current carrying conductor is placed above a magnetic needle, the magnetic needle is deflected and tends to align itself perpendicular to the conductor. The effect can be increased by increasing the strength of current through the wire or by decreasing the distance.

However, the maximum deflection which can be produced is 90 degree, when the magnetic field produced by the current carrying wire is very much greater than the earth’s magnetic field.

Questions from Properties of gases

Senarita asked:

we know that temperature has a properties to make some thing bigger in volume.we say that gas has no particular volume or shape.where we place a gas it takes the shape of that container.my question is- a gas of mass ‘m’ has a particular number of atoms or molecules.if the gas is not getting any temperature then how it is occupying all the volume of a bigger container.i mean how the inner space of two atoms or two molecules of that particular gas is increasing when i am transferring it to a bigger container.(say,every condition is constant.nothing is changed.)please answer me.

“can you give me some name of sites where i can get explanations on hydrostatics or the topics of physics.i am now in class 11.”

Master will be answering the question shortly. The visitors are requested to respond
