Expert Answer:

The energy possessed by a magnetic dipole due to its particular position in the magnetic field is the potential energy of the magnetic dipole in the field.

The potential energy of the dipole is given by:

U = -m.B

Where, m is the magnetic dipole moment held at an angle of begin mathsize 12px style straight theta end style in the direction of a uniform magnetic field B.

When begin mathsize 12px style straight theta end style =0, U = -mBcos0° = -mB which is minimum.

When the magnetic dipole is aligned along the direction of the magnetic field, it is in stable equilibrium having minimum potential energy. Hence, it is the position of stable equilibrium.

NOTE: Please ask each question as seperate seperate queries.
