A magnetic dipole in a constant magnetic field has :

  • Option 1)

    maximum potential energy when the torque is maximum.

  • Option 2)

     zero potential energy when the torque is minimum.

  • Option 3)

     zero potential energy when the torque is maximum.

  • Option 4)

     minimum potential energy when the torque is maximum.

As we learnt in

Torque -

\underset{T}{\rightarrow}=\underset{M}{\rightarrow}\times \underset{B}{\rightarrow}=M=NiA

T=MB\sin \theta =NBiA\sin \theta

 

- wherein

M - magnetic moment 

 

 

Work done by current carrying coil -

W=MB(1-\cos \theta )

-

 

 For maximum torque \theta=90^{o} and for this value of \theta potential energy will be zero..

Correct option is 3.
