question

A magnetic field best changes the direction of a beam of electrons when the beam and the field
answer

are at right angles to each other.
question

A generator converts
answer

mechanical energy to electrical energy.
question

A magnetic force acting on a moving electron can change its
answer

direction.
question

Faraday’s law is the law
answer

of electromagnetic induction.
question

Which force field can increase the speed of a moving electron?
answer

Electric only.
question

Magnetic domains occur mainly for materials composed of
answer

iron
question

A magnetic force acts on an electron only when the electron
answer

moves parallel to magnetic field lines.
question

Consider a long bar magnet with two poles, one pole at each end. If the bar is broken into three pieces there will be a total of
answer

six poles.
question

A magnetic force on an electron cannot change its
answer

speed NOR its kinetic energy.
question

When the direction of a magnetic field inducing voltage alternates, the current produced is
answer

ac
question

A magnetic force acting on a beam of electrons can change
answer

only the direction of the beam.
question

A strong magnet lifts a paper clip. Compared with the force the magnet exerts on the clip, the force the clip exerts on the magnet is
answer

the same.
question

The magnetic domains in a magnet produce a stronger magnet when the domains are
answer

aligned
question

In the space around a magnet is
answer

an electric field.
question

Electromagnetic induction is utilized in
answer

all of the above; the reading of credit and ATM cards, many airport security devices, coils beneath pavements that trigger traffic-light changes.
question

The force that a magnetic field exerts on moving charged particles
answer

all of the above; increases with their speed, is fundamentally different compared with the direction of electric forces, cannot change their speed.
question

Earth’s magnetic field deflects
answer

cosmic radiation.
question

A motor and a generator are
answer

similar devices.
question

Outside a magnet, magnetic field lines are conventionally drawn from
answer

north to south pole.
question

Surrounding moving electric charges are
answer

both electric and magnetic fields.
question

The source of all magnetism is
answer

spinning and orbiting electrons.
question

A changing electric field can induce a changing
answer

magnetic field.
question

A generator is
answer

a motor in reverse.
question

A bar magnet that holds a chain of paper clips illustrates
answer

magnetic field displacement.
question

The essential concept in an electric generator is
answer

Faraday’s Law.
question
