A toy car has a bar magnet laid hidden inside its body along its length. Using another magnet how will you find out which pole of the magnet is facing the front of the car? 12. Match Column I with Column II (One option of A can match with more than one option of B) 13. You are provided with two identical metal bars. One out of the two is a magnet. Suggest two ways to identify the magnet. LONG ANSWER QUESTIONS 14. Three identical iron bars are kept on a table. Two out of three bars are magnets. In one of the magnet the North-South poles are marked. How will you find out which of the other two bars is a magnet? Identify the poles of this magnet. 15. Describe the steps involved in magnetising an iron strip with the help of a magnet. 12/04/18 84 EXEMPLAR P ROBLEMS 16. Fig. 13.6 Fig. 13.6 shows a magnetic campass. What will happen to the position of its needle if you bring a bar magnet near it? Draw a diagram to show the effect on the needle on bringing the bar magnet near it. Also draw the diagram to show the effect when the other end of the bar magnet is brought near it. 17. Suggest an activity to prepare a magnetic compass by using an iron needle and a bar magnet. 18. Boojho kept a magnet close to an ordinary iron bar. He observed that the iron bar attracts a pin as shown in Fig. 13.7. Fig. 13.7 What inference could he draw from this observation? Explain. 19.
