# MCQs on Magnetic Properties of Material

1 - Question

Which of the following parameter is used to assess the magnetic ability of a material?
a) Magnetic flux density
b) Magnetization
c) Magnetic dipole moment
d) Susceptibility
Explanation: Magnetic susceptibility is a measure to quantify the ability of a material to undergo magnetization in an applied magnetic field. It is the ratio of magnetization (M) to the applied magnetic field intensity (H).

2 - Question

For a diamagnetic material, which of the following statement is correct?
a) Magnetic susceptibility < 0
b) Magnetic susceptibility > 0
c) Magnetic susceptibility = 0
d) Magnetic susceptibility = 1
Explanation: Diamagnetic materials are those which repel magnetic field and hence their magnetic susceptibility (χ) is negative.

3 - Question

For a diamagnetic material, which of the following statement is correct (μr = relative permeability)?
a) μr > 2
b) μr < 1
c) μr > 1
d) μr = 1
Explanation: A diamagnetic material has a constant relative permeability (μr) slightly less than 1. advertisement

4 - Question

For a paramagnetic material, which of the following statement is correct?
a) Magnetic susceptibility < 0
b) Magnetic susceptibility > 0
c) Magnetic susceptibility = 0
d) Magnetic susceptibility = -1
Explanation: Magnetic susceptibility (χ) is very small positive quantity for a paramagnetic material.

5 - Question

For a paramagnetic material, which of the following statement is correct (μr = relative permeability)?
a) μr = 0
b) μr < 1
c) μr > 1
d) μr < 0
Explanation: A paramagnetic material has a constant relative permeability (μr) slightly greater than 1.

6 - Question

What is the curie temperature of iron (in kelvin scale)?
a) 2195 K
b) 495 K
c) 895 K
d) 1095 K
Explanation: The curie temperature of iron is about 1095K. It changes its magnetic behaviour from ferromagnetic to paramagnetic.
