(c) Number of turns in the secondary (d) The core material

2. Explain the working of an AC dynamo?

When the armature is rotated the current moves in the direction ABCD during first half of the rotation. During the second half of the rotation the current moves in the direction DCBA. The current in the external circuit therefore, flows in one direction, for one half cycle and in the opposite direction for the second half cycle. It is therefore an alternating current. The dynamo is called alternating current dynamo.

3. Explain the working of a DC dynamo?

When the armature is rotated, during first half of rotation the current flows along ABCD in the coil and along B2 < B, in the external circuit, the split rings changes their contact. S1 comes in contact with B2 S2 with B1. In the second half, the current is along DCBA in the coil but along B2 > B1 in the external circuit. But the magnitude of the current is not constant.

2. Think you are sitting in a chamber with your back to one wall. An electron beam moving horizontally from back wall towards the front wall, is deflected by a strong magnetic field to your right side what is the direction of magnetic field?

Movement of from electron beam from back wall to the front wall is equivalent to the flow of electric current from front wall to the back wall. The deflection of the beam means, the force is acting towards our right side according to Flemings left hand rule, the direction of magnetic field is vertically downward. That is, the magnetic field is perpendicular, to the plane of paper and directed inward. Such magnetic field is shown by.

3. Why does a current carrying conductor kept in a magnetic field experience force? What is the direction of force acting on the conductor?

Current carrying conductor contains moving negatively charged particles Each electrons experience a force. The total force experienced by electrons is equal to the force experienced by the conductor. This force acts perpendicular to both the magnetic field and the direction of current in the conductor.

4. What is the frequency of DC?
