Magnetic Field:Magnetic field is defined by the force it exerts on a moving charged particle.It is electromagnetic field that exerts a force on a moving charge. Magnetic field can be defined as torque it produces on a magnetic dipole.
The magnetic field lines1. The magnetic field lines of a magnet ( or a solenoid) form continuous closed loops.2. The tangent to the field line at a given point represents the direction of the net magnetic field Bat that point.3. The larger the number of field lines crossing per unit area, the strongeris the magnitude of the magnetic field B.4. The magnetic field lines do not intersect.5. Bar magnet may be thought of as a large number of circulating currents in analogy with a solenoid6. Magnetic sources are inherently dipole sources - you can't isolate North or South "monopoles.
Gauss’s law for magnetism : The net magnetic flux through any closed surface is zero.
Earth magnetic field arise due to electrical currents produced by convective motion of metallic fluids (consisting mostly of molten iron and nickel) in the outer core of the earth. This is known as the dynamo effect.
Magnetisation ( M) : It is net magnetic moment per unit volume.M=mnetV
magnetic dipole moment (m) associated with a current loop=m=NIA

Magnetic Intensity is a quantity used in describing magnetic phenomenon in terms of their magnetic fields. The strength of the magnetic field at a given point can be given in terms of vector quantity called as magnetic intensity (H). It is B0=𝜇0HTotalmagneticfield=B=𝜇0(H+Mz)Mz=𝜒HB=𝜇0(1+𝜒)HB=𝜇0𝜇rH 𝜇=𝜇0𝜇r=𝜇0(1+𝜒)=Magnetic permeability of substanceB0=magnetic field due to solenoid 𝜒= Magnetic Susceptibility. It measures how the magnetic material responds to an external magnetic field.1+𝜒=𝜇r=relativepermiability of the substance. The magnetising current IM is the additional current that needs to be passed through the windings of the solenoid in the absence of the core which would give a B value as in the presence of thecore.
When magnetic fields pass through magnetic materials which themselves contribute internal magnetic fields, ambiguities can arise about what part of the field comes from the external currents and what comes from the material itself. So magnetic intensity is defined H. H=B𝜇0-MwhereM=magnetisation of material.B=net magnetic field.
Geographic Meridian: The vertical plane containing the longitude circle and the axis of rotation of the earth is called the geographic meridian
Magnetic Axis: The line joining the magnetic north and magnetic south poles of the earth is called magnetic axis of earth.
Magnetic Equator of earth: The plane perpendicular to the magnetic axis of the earth and passing thru the points where the magnetic needle is parallel to the earth's surface intersect the earth's spherical surface in to a circle. This circle is called magnetic equator of the earth.
Magnetic meridian Magnetic meridian of a place as the vertical plane which passes through the imaginary line joining the magnetic north and the south poles.
Angle of Declination: At any place the acute angle between the magnetic meridian and the geographical meridian is called angle of declination. It is the angle between the true geographic north and the north shown by a compass needle. Magnetic declination varies both from place to place and with the passage of time.
Angle of Dip: The angle of dip at a place is the angle between the direction of earth magnetic field and the horizontal in the magnetic maridian at that place.
Ferromagnetism : Ferromagnetic substances are those which gets strongly magnetised whenplaced in an external magnetic field.They have strong tendency to movefrom a region of weak magnetic field to strong magnetic field, i.e., they get strongly attracted to a magnet.
The individual atoms (or ions or molecules) in a ferromagnetic material possess a dipole moment as in a paramagnetic material. They interact with one another in such a way that they spontaneously align themselves in a common direction over a macroscopic volume called domain.
The ferromagnetic property depends on temperature. At high enough temperature, a ferromagnet becomes a paramagnet. The temperature of transition from ferromagnetic to paramagnetism is called the Curie temperature (Tc).The susceptibility above the Curie temperature, i.e., in the paramagnetic phase is described by:𝜒=CT-Tc here T>Tc
Curie TemperatureWhen ferromagnetic substance is heated its magnetization decreases with temperature. At particular temperature it looses its magnetisation completely. The temperature at which domain structure is destroyed and the ferromagnetic substance looses its magnetism is called curie temperature.
Diamagnetism : Diamagnetic substances are those which have tendency to move from strongerto the weaker part of the external magnetic field. In other words, unlike the way a magnetattracts metals like iron, it would repel a diamagnetic substance. Magnetic Susceptibility is negative for Diamagnetic material.
The most exotic diamagnetic materials are superconductors. These are metals, cooled to very low temperatures which exhibits both perfect conductivity and perfect diamagnetism. In superconductors 𝜒=-1and𝜇r=0. A superconductor repels a magenet and is repelled by a magnet. The phenomenon of perfect diamagnetism in superconductor is called Meissner effect.
Diamagnetic substances are the ones in which resultant magnetic moment in an atom is zero.
Paramagnetic Material: Paramagnetic Material are those which gets weakly magnetized when placed in external magnetic field. Magnetic Susceptibility is small and positive for paramagnetic material.
Curie's lawMagnetisation of a paramagnetic material is inversely proportional to the absolute temperature T.M=CB0Twhere C=CurieconstantandTisabsolutetemperature.𝜒=C𝜇0T

Q.5.16Answer the following questions: Q(a) Why does a paramagnetic sample display greater magnetisation (for the same magnetising field) when cooled? Answer (a)The alignments of dipoles get disrupted at high temperatures. This happens due to random thermal motion of molecule. On cooling, this disruption is reduced. So, a paramagnetic sample displays greater magnetisation when cooled. Q(b) Why is diamagnetism, in contrast, almost independent of temperature? Answer (b) Diamagnetism happens because of : Electrons in an atom orbiting around nucleus possess orbital angular momentum. These orbiting electrons are equivalent to current-carrying loop and thuspossess orbital magnetic moment. Diamagnetic substances are the ones in which resultant magnetic moment in an atom is zero. When magnetic field is applied, those electrons having orbital magnetic moment in the same direction slow down and those in the opposite direction speed up. This happens due to induced current in accordance with Lenz’s law. Thus, the substance develops a net magnetic moment in direction opposite to that of the applied field and hence repulsion.So the magnetism in a diamagnetic substance is due to induced dipole moment (opposite to the magnetizing field). Hence, the internal motion of the atoms, which depends on the temperature, does not affect the diamagnetism of a material. (c) If a toroid uses bismuth for its core, will the field in the core be (slightly) greater or (slightly) less than when the core is empty? (d) Is the permeability of a ferromagnetic material independent ofthe magnetic field? If not, is it more for lower or higher fields?(e) Magnetic field lines are always nearly normal to the surface of aferromagnet at every point. (This fact is analogous to the staticelectric field lines being normal to the surface of a conductor atevery point.) Why?(f ) Would the maximum possible magnetisation of a paramagneticsample be of the same order of magnitude as the magnetisationof a ferromagnet?
