# What are the 3 ways you can increase the strength of an electromagnet?

What are the 3 ways you can increase the strength of an electromagnet? The three ways by which the strength of an electromagnet can be increased are: By increasing the current flowing in the coil. By increasing the number of turns in the coil. By inducing the length of the air gap between the poles.

What are electromagnets how its strength can be changed class 10? An electromagnet can be defined as a magnet which functions on electricity. Unlike a permanent magnet, the strength of an electromagnet can be changed by changing the amount of electric current that flows through it. If the current flow is cut, the property of magnetism ceases to exist.

What is an electromagnet How can you increase the strength of an electromagnet Class 7?

The strength of an electromagnet depends on:
1. Increasing he strength of the current passing through the coil, the greater the current, the greater the strength;
2. Increasing the number of turns in the coils, the greater the number of turns, the greater the strength;

What is an electromagnet Class 7 short answer? Answer: An electromagnet is a coil of insulated wire wound around a piece of a magnetic substance such as soft iron. The magnetic substance acts as a magnet as long as the current flows in the wire.

### What are electromagnets Class 10?

An electro magnet is a temporary magnet made by winding wire around an iron core. When current flows in the coil the iron becomes a magnet, and when the current is turned off it looses it’s magnetic properties.

### What is electromagnetic induction class 10?

Electromagnetic Induction is a current produced because of voltage production (electromotive force) due to a changing magnetic field. This either happens when a conductor is placed in a moving magnetic field (when using an AC power source) or when a conductor is constantly moving in a stationary magnetic field.

### What is an electromagnet list any two uses class 10?

Solution : (a) An electromagnet is a solenoid coil with a soft iron core. On passing current through solenoid it behaves as a magnet and on stopping current flow the magnetism is lost. <br> Electromagnets are used in electric door bell, transformer, electric cranes etc.

### What are the uses of electromagnet Class 10?

10 Uses of Electromagnets
• Generators, motors, and transformers.
• Electric buzzers and bells.
• Relays and valves.
• Data storage devices like VCRs, tape recorders, hard discs, etc.
• Induction cooker.
• Magnetic locks.
• MRI machines.

### What magnets are made of?

Magnets are made of a group of metals called ferromagnetic metals. Nickel and iron are examples of these metals. Metals such as these are unique in their ability to be magnetized uniformly.

### What is the shape of magnetic field lines due to a straight current carrying conductor?

When electric current is carried by a straight wire, it produces magnetic field lines in the form of concentric circles.

### Why do magnetic field lines not intersect each other?

If magnetic field lines intersect each other, then at the intersection point there will be two directions of the same field which is not possible. Hence the field lines do not cross or intersect each other.

### What is right hand rule 10th thumb?

Right Hand Thumb Rule: If a current carrying conductor is imagined to be held in your right hand such that the thumb points along the direction of current, then the direction of the wrapped fingers will give the direction of magnetic field lines.

### How is the direction of magnetic field at a point determined using the field lines?

A magnetic field line is the path along which a free north-pole tends to move. The direction of a magnetic field at a point is determined by placing a small compass needle. The N – pole of compass indicates the direction of magnetic field at that point.

### How can it be shown that magnetic field exists around a wire through which direct current is passing?

Solution : A compass needle placed near the wire, through which current is flowing, gets deflected, thereby showing the magnetic field around it.
