# Assertion and Reason Questions on Class 12 Physics Chapter 4 Moving Charges and Magnetism

Home » CBSE Class 12 Physics » Assertion Reason Questions for Class 12 Physics » Assertion and Reason Questions on Class 12 Physics Chapter 4 Moving Charges and Magnetism

Directions: These questions consist of two statements, each printed as Assertion and Reason. While answering these questions, you are required to choose any one of the following four responses.
(a) If both Assertion and Reason are correct and the Reason is a correct explanation of the Assertion.
(b) If both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not a correct explanation of the Assertion.
(c) If the Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect.
(d) If both the Assertion and Reason are incorrect.

Q.1. Assertion : Cyclotron is a device which is used to accelerate the positive ion.
Reason : Cyclotron frequency depends upon the velocity.

Q.2. Assertion : Cyclotron does not accelerate electron.
Reason : Mass of the electrons is very small.

Q.3. Assertion : In electric circuits, wires carrying currents in opposite directions are often twisted together
Reason : If the wires are not twisted together, the combination of the wires forms a current loop, the magnetic field generated by the loop might affect adjacent circuits or components.

Q.4. Assertion : The magnetic field produced by a current carrying solenoid is independent of its length and cross-sectional area.
Reason : The magnetic field inside the solenoid is uniform.

Q.5. Assertion : A charge, whether stationary or in motion produces a magnetic field around it.
Reason : Moving charges produce only electric field in the surrounding space.

Q.6. Assertion : A proton and an alpha particle having the same kinetic energy are moving in circular paths in a uniform magnetic field. The radii of their circular paths will be equal.
Reason : Any two charged particles having equal kinetic energies and entering a region of uniform magnetic field B in a direction perpendicular to B, will describe circular trajectories of equal radii.

Q.7. Assertion : If the current in a solenoid is reversed in direction while keeping the same magnitude, the magnetic field energy stored in the solenoid remains unchanged.
Reason : Magnetic field energy density is proportional to the magnetic field.

Q.8. Assertion : The magnetic field at the centre of the circular coil in the following figure due to
the currents I1 and I2 is zero.

Reason : I1 = I2 implies that the fields due to the current I1 and I2 will be balanced.

Q.9. Assertion : If the current in a solenoid is reversed in direction while keeping the same magnitude, the magnetic field energy stored in the solenoid decreases.
Reason : Magnetic field energy density is proportional to square of current.

Q.10. Assertion : Free electrons always keep on moving in a conductor even then no magnetic force act on them in magnetic field unless a current is passed through it.
Reason : The average velocity of free electron is zero.

Q.11. Assertion: To convert a galvanometer into an ammeter a small resistance is connected in parallel with it.
Reason: The small resistance increases the combined resistance of the combination.
