Q. A tightly-wound long solenoid has n turns per unit length, radius r and carries a current i. A particle having charge q and mass m is projected from a point on the axis in the direction perpendicular to the axis. The maximum speed for which particle does not strike the solenoid will be

(a) \displaystyle \frac {\mu_0 q r n i}{2m}

(b) \displaystyle \frac {\mu_0 q r n i}{m}

(c) \displaystyle \frac {2\mu_0 q r n i}{3m}

(d) None of these

Ans: (a)

Sol: Magnetic field inside the solenoid is B = μ0 n i , along the axis of solenoid

Since velocity is Perpendicular to B , hence particle moves in a circle of radius

\displaystyle R = \frac{m v}{q B} = \frac{m v}{q \mu_0 n i}

If particle does not strike solenoid

R ≤ r/2

\displaystyle \frac{m v}{q \mu_0 n i}  \le \frac{r}{2}

\displaystyle v \le \frac{\mu_0 n i q r}{2 m}

\displaystyle v_{max} = \frac{\mu_0 n i q r}{2 m}

(a) \displaystyle 60 \hat{i} N

(b) \displaystyle -60 \hat{i} N

(c) \displaystyle 30 \hat{i} N

(d) \displaystyle -30 \hat{i} N

Ans: (a)

Sol: y2 = 4 – x

At x =0 , y = ± 2

\displaystyle \vec{L} = 4 \hat{j}

(As , force on parabola is same as force on  wire of length L )

\displaystyle \vec{F} =  i (\vec{L} \times \vec{B})

\displaystyle \vec{F} =  3 (4 \hat{j} \times 5 \hat{k})

\displaystyle \vec{F} = 60 \hat{i}
