# A horizontal rod of mass 10 gm and length 10 cm is placed on a smooth plane inclined at an angle of 60 degree with the horizontal, with the length of the rod parallel to the edge of the inclined plane. A uniform magnetic field of induction B is applied vertically downwards. If the current through the rod is 1.73 ampere, then the value of B for which the rod remains stationary on the inclined plane is Option 1) 1.73 Tesla   Option 2) 1 / 1.73Tesla Option 3) 1 Tesla   Option 4) None of the above
