permanent magnet of such a big size and store such a big magnet.
3. Hence magnetic crane is used to load and transport scrap iron.
Most of the electrical appliances need earthing.
1. Earthing connects the metallic body of electrical appliances deep inside
the earth.
2. In case the appliance is faulty, the live wire comes in contact with the
metal body of the appliances.
3. Due to earthing the current flowing through the metal body passes to
earth and the user handling the device does not get shock. Therefore
most of the electrical appliances having a metallic body need earthing.
In rainy season, we should not touch the wall of building.
1. In rainy season, the wall of building becomes wet due to rain.
2. If bare wire comes in contact with such wet wall, electric current
begins to flow through the wall.
3. A person touching the wall gets severe shock. Therefore in rainy season,
we should not touch the wall of building.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to study the body of patients.
1. Electric current produces magnetic field even if the current is very
weak.
2. If we touch something, our nerves carry an electrical impulse to the
muscles we need to use. This produces weak magnetic field.
3. This forms the basis of obtaining images of heart and brain or images of
different parts of the body.
4. This principle is used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
During a short-circuit, the circuit catches fire.
1. During a short-circuit, the resistance of the circuit becomes very small
and hence, huge amount of current flows through it.
2. This produces a large amount of heat and raises the temperature.
3. As a result, the circuit catches fire.

To avoid such accidents, metal casings of all electrical appliance must
be earthed.
4. One end of a copper wire is connected to the metal case of the appliance
and the other end is connected to the copper plate which is buried

1. Armature coil : A large number of turns of insulated copper wire wound
on iron core in rectangular shape forms an armature coil ABCD as
shown in the figure.
2. Strong magnet : The armature coil is placed in between two pole pieces
(N and S) of a strong magnet. This provides a strong magnetic field.
3. Split ring commutator : It consist of two halves (R1 and R2) of a metallic
ring. The ends of the armature coil are connected to these rings.
Commutator reverses the direction of current in the armature coil.
4. Brushes : Two carbon brushes B1 and B2 are used to press the commutator.
5. Battery : The battery supplies the current to the armature coil.
Working of the electric motor :
(a) When current is passed through the coil ABCD, arms AB and CD
experience force.
(b) According to Fleming’s left hand rule the force experienced by arm
AB is in the upward direction and arm CD in the downward
direction. Both these forces are equal and opposite.
(c) This force rotates the coil in clockwise direction until the coil is
vertical. At this position, the contact between commutator and
brushes break. So the supply to the coil is cut off. Thus no force
acts on the coil.
(d) But the coil does not stop due to inertia. It goes on rotating until
the commutator again comes in contact with the brushes B1 and
B2. Again the current starts passing through the coil and the arm
AB rotates through 90º, 180º, 270º and 360 degrees.
(e) Now the force acting on arm AB is upward and CD is downward.
Again this force moves the coil in clockwise direction.
(f) Thus, the coil rotates with the help of electrical energy. The coil of
DC motor continues to rotate in the same direction.

Ans.
Armature, strong magnets and brushes are the same as used for electric
motors.
3. Slip rings : The two ends of the armature coil are connected to two
brass slip rings R1 and R2. These rings rotate along with the armature
coil.
Working :
(a) When the armature coil ABCD rotates in the magnetic field provided
by the strong magnets, it cuts the magnetic lines of forces.
(b) Thus the changing magnetic field produces induced current in the
coil. The direction of induced current is determined by the Flemings
right hand rule.
(c) The current flows out through the brush B1 in one direction in the
first half of the revolution and through the brush B2 in the next
half revolution in the reverse direction, this process is repeated.
(d) Therefore, the induced current produced is of alternating nature.
Such a current is called as alternating current.

Construction : The main components of D.C. generator are :
1. Armature coil
2. Strong magnets
3. Split rings or commutator 4. Brushes
5. Bulb.
The components such as armature coil, strong magnet, brushes are
the same which are used for AC generators.
Slip rings or commutator is the same as used in electric motor.
Working of DC generator :
(a) When the coil of DC generator rotates in the magnetic field,
potential difference is produced in the coil. This gives rise to the
flow of current. This is shown by glowing of the bulb.
(b) In D.C. generator, the flow of current in the circuit is in the same
direction as long as the coil rotates in the magnetic field.
(c) This is because one brush is always in contact with the arm of the
armature moving up and other brush is in contact with the arm of
the armature moving downward in the magnetic field.
State general precautions for safety with respect to electricity.
1. Electric fuse must be used in electric circuits. It protects the electrical
appliances by stopping the flow of any excess electric current.
2. Wires carrying electricity should not be touched bare footed.

3. While working with electricity we must wear gloves made of insulated
material and rubber soled shoe so that current may not flow through
our body.
4. The insulations of the wire must be checked periodically.
5. To avoid electric shocks, metal casing of all electrical appliances must
be earthed.
6. Electric circuits should be switched off during lightning. This will save
the electrical appliances from burning.

Answer the following questions in one sentence each :
What will happen when a magnetic needle is brought near a current
carrying conductor ?
The magnetic needle will be deflected because a magnetic field is produced
around a current carrying conductor.
What is a solenoid ?
A coil of many turns of insulated copper wire wrapped in the shape of
cylinder is called a solenoid.
What are permanent magnets made ?
Permanent magnets are usually made of carbon steel chromium steel,
cobalt and tungsten steel and some alloys, like nipermag and Alnico.
What is Nipermag and Alnico ?
Nipermag is an alloy of iron, nickel, aluminium and titanium.
Alnico is an alloy of aluminium, nickel and cobalt.
What is electric motor ?
A device which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy is called
an electric motor.
Name a device which acts on the magnetic effects of current.
Electric motor is the device which acts on the magnetic effect of current.
What is the frequency of AC of India ?
The frequency of AC in India is 50 Hz.
What is an electric generator ?
An electric device which converts mechanical energy into electrical energy
is called electric generator.
Which are the three wires used in electrical connections ?
The three wires used in electrical appliances are phase wire or live wire,
neutral wire and earth wire.
What is meant by ‘short circuit’.
If a live wire and a neutral wire come in direct contact or touch each
other, sparks are caused between them. This is called as short circuit.
What is the conclusion of Oersted’s experiment ?
Oersted’s experiment proves that an electric current produces a magnetic
field around it.
What is meant by overloading ?
Overloading means the flow of large amount of current in the circuit beyond
the permissible amount of current.
What is the voltage of domestic supply ?
The voltage of domestic supply is 220V - 250V.
Name the safety device used to save the electrical appliances.
Electric fuse is the safety device used to save electrical appliances.
