**Comprehension Type**Electrical resistance of certain materials, known as superconductors, changes abruptly from a nonzero value to zero as their temperature is lowered below a critical temperature $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}$ (0). An interesting property of superconductors is that their critical temperature becomes smaller than $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}$ (0) if they are placed in a magnetic field, i.e., the critical temperature $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}$ (B) is a function of the magnetic field strength B. The dependence of $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}$ (B) on B is shown in the figure.Q. In the graphs below, the resistance R of a superconductor is shown as a function of its temperature T for two different magnetic fields $\mathrm{B}_{1}$ (sold line) and $\mathrm{B}_{2}$ (dashed line). If $\mathrm{B}_{2}$ is larger than $\mathrm{B}_{1}$, which of the following graphs shows the correct variation of R with T in these fields?

**[JEE2010]**Ans. (A)
If $\mathrm{B}_{2}>\mathrm{B}_{1}$, critical temperature, (at which resistance of semiconductors abrupty becomes zero) in case 2 will be less than compared to case 1.

Q. A superconductor has $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}$ (0) = 100 K. When a magnetic field of 7.5 Tesla is applied, its $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}$ decreases to 75 K. For this material one can definitely say that when
(A) $\mathrm{B}=5$ Tesla, $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}(\mathrm{B})=80 \mathrm{K}$
(B) $\mathrm{B}=5$ Tesla, $75 \mathrm{K}<\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}(\mathrm{B})<100 \mathrm{K}$
(C) $\mathrm{B}=10$ Tesla, $75 \mathrm{K}<\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{c}}(\mathrm{B})<100 \mathrm{K}$
(D) $\mathrm{B}=10$ Tesla, $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{c}}(\mathrm{B})=70 \mathrm{K}$

**[JEE2010]**Ans. (B)
With increase in temperature, TC is decreasing.
$\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{c}}$ (0) = 100 K
$\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{c}}$ = 75 K at B = 7.5 T
Hence, at B = 5T, $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{c}}$ should line between 75 K and 100 K

by direction of $\overrightarrow{\mathrm{F}} ;$ magnetic field is in $-\mathrm{z}$ direction
Time $=\frac{\theta}{\omega}=\frac{\pi / 6}{\mathrm{QB} / \mathrm{M}}=\frac{\mathrm{M} \pi}{6 \mathrm{QB}}$
$\Rightarrow \mathrm{B}=\frac{\mathrm{M} \pi}{6 \mathrm{Q}\left(10 \times 10^{-3}\right)}=\frac{50 \pi \mathrm{M}}{3 \mathrm{Q}}$

(D) current in wire 1 and wire 2 is the direction PQ and RS, respectively and h $\approx$ 1.2 a

**[JEE-Advanced-2014]**Ans. (C)
$\mathrm{B}_{\text {wire }}=\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{i}}{2 \pi \sqrt{\mathrm{a}^{2}+\mathrm{h}^{2}}} 2 \sin \theta$
$=\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{ia}}{\pi\left(\mathrm{a}^{2}+\mathrm{h}^{2}\right)}$
$\mathrm{B}_{\text {loop }}=\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{ia}^{2}}{2\left(\mathrm{a}^{2}+\mathrm{h}^{2}\right)^{3 / 2}}$
$\mathrm{B}_{\text {wire }}=\mathrm{B}_{\text {loop }}$
$\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{ia}}{\pi\left(\mathrm{a}^{2}+\mathrm{h}^{2}\right)}=\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{i} \mathrm{a}^{2}}{2\left(\mathrm{a}^{2}+\mathrm{h}^{2}\right)^{3 / 2}}$
$\sqrt{a^{2}+h^{2}}=\frac{\pi a}{2}$
$a^{2}+h^{2}=2.5 \mathrm{a}^{2}$
$\mathrm{h}^{2}=1.5 \mathrm{a}^{2}$
$\mathrm{h} \approx 1.2 \mathrm{a}$

Q. Consider d >> a, and the loop is rotated about its diameter parallel to the wires by $30^{\circ}$ from the position shown in the figure.

(A) $\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{I}^{2} \mathrm{a}^{2}}{\mathrm{d}}$
(B) $\frac{\mu_{0} I^{2} a^{2}}{2 d}$
(C) $\frac{\sqrt{3} \mu_{0} \mathrm{I}^{2} \mathrm{a}^{2}}{\mathrm{d}}$
(D) $\frac{\sqrt{3} \mu_{0} \mathrm{I}^{2} \mathrm{a}^{2}}{2 \mathrm{d}}$

**[JEE-Advanced-2014]**Ans. (B)
$|\vec{\tau}|=|\vec{M} \times \vec{B}|=M B \sin 30^{\circ}$
where $\mathrm{M}=\left(\pi \mathrm{a}^{2}\right) \mathrm{I}$ and $\mathrm{B}=2 \times \frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{I}}{2 \pi \mathrm{d}}=\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{I}}{\pi \mathrm{d}}$ Therefore
$\tau=\left(\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{I}}{\pi \mathrm{d}}\right)\left(\pi \mathrm{a}^{2} \mathrm{I}\right)\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)=\frac{\mu_{0} \mathrm{I}^{2} \mathrm{a}^{2}}{2 \mathrm{d}}$

**[JEE-Advanced-2017]**Ans. (C)

**[JEE-Advanced-2017]**Ans. (D)
For particle to move in -ve y-direction, either its velocity must be in –ve y-direction (if initial velocity $\neq$ 0) & force should be parallel to velocity or it must experience a net force in –ve y-direction only (if initial velocity = 0)

Q. A symmetric star shaped conducting wire loop is carrying a steady state current I as shown in the figure. The distance between the diametrically opposite vertices of the star is 4a. The magnitude of the magnetic field at the center of the loop is :

**[JEE-Advanced-2017]**Ans. (B)
The given points (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) makes $360^{\circ}$ angle at 'O'. Hence angle made by vertices 1 & 2 with 'O' is $60^{\circ}$.
Direction of magnetic field at 'O' due to each segment is same. Since it is symmetric star shape, magnitude will also be same.
Magnetic field due to section BC.
$\left(\mathrm{B}_{1}\right)=\frac{\mathrm{k} \mathrm{i}}{\mathrm{a}}(\sin (+60)-\sin 30)=\frac{\mathrm{ki}}{2 \mathrm{a}}(\sqrt{3}-1)$
$\mathrm{B}_{\mathrm{net}}=12 \times \mathrm{B}_{1}=\frac{6 \mathrm{ki}}{\mathrm{a}}(\sqrt{3}-1) \&\left(\mathrm{k}=\frac{\mu_{0}}{4 \pi}\right)$

Q. A uniform magnetic field B exists in the region between x = 0 and x = $\frac{3 \mathrm{R}}{2}$ (region 2 in the figure) pointing normally into the plane of the paper. A particle with charge +Q and momentum p directed along x-axis enters region 2 from region 1 at point $P_{1}$ (y = –R). Which of the following options(s) is/are correct ?
(A) For $\mathrm{B}=\frac{8}{13} \frac{\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{QR}}$, the particle will enter region 3 through the point $P_{2}$ on x-axis
(B) For $\mathrm{B}>\frac{2}{3} \frac{\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{QR}}$, the particle will re-enter region 1
(C) For a fixed B, particle of same charge Q and same velocity v, the distance between the point $P_{1}$ and the point of re-entry into region 1 is inversely proportional to the mass of the particle.
(D) When the particle re-enters region 1 through the longest possible path in region 2, the magnitude of the chage in its linear momentum between point $P_{1}$ and the farthest point from y-axis is $\frac{\mathrm{p}}{\sqrt{2}}$.

**[JEE-Advanced-2017]**Ans. (A,B)
For $\mathrm{B}=\fra
c{8}{13} \frac{\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{QR}},$ radius of path
$\mathrm{R}^{\prime}=\frac{\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{Q.B}}=\frac{\mathrm{p} \times 13 \mathrm{QR}}{\mathrm{Q} 8 \mathrm{p}}=\frac{13}{8} \mathrm{R}$
using pythagorous theorem, $\mathrm{y}=\frac{5 \mathrm{R}}{8}$
$\therefore$ particle will enter region 3 through point $\mathrm{P}_{2}$
for $\mathrm{B}>\frac{2}{3} \frac{\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{QR}}$
Radius of path $<\frac{3 \mathrm{PQR}}{\mathrm{Q} 2 \mathrm{p}}=\frac{3}{2} \mathrm{R}$
$\therefore$ Particle will not enter in region $3 \&$ will re-enter region 1
charge in momentum = $\sqrt{2} \mathrm{p}$. When particle enters region 1 between entry point & farthest point from y-axis.
