8. A bar magnet is attached to the end of a given spring which is connected to a corkboard. The
arrangement is as shown in Figure 8.1.

Figure 8.1
A current carrying coil is placed near the bar magnet. There is an attractive force on the
magnet which depends on the distance x between the end of the magnet and that of the coil.

Design a laboratory experiment to investigate how this attractive force varies with the distance
x.

You may use any standard equipment which may be found in a school or college science
laboratory together with some or all of the apparatus from the following list.

Ammeter,
Bar magnet,
Coil,
Connecting wires,
Mass holder,
Metre rule,
Oscilloscope,
Power supply units (variable output 0 – 6 V d.c.),
Pulleys,
Resistor,
Rheostat,
Set of masses,
Signal generator,
String,
Voltmeter

Your answer should contain details of

(a) the procedure to be followed including which measurements would be taken

(b) how the attractive force between the magnet and the coil would be measured

(c) how the current in the coil would be monitored

(d) any modifications you would make to the setup shown in Figure 8.1 in order to obtain a
measurable change in x. Diagrams should be clearly labelled.
