# battery is connected between point X and y on the circumference of uniform conducting ring of radius a and resistance R, . the smaller arc between X and y substance and angle 60 degree at the centre and magnetic induction at O  due to current in the small arc is 0.1 tesla in outward direction. magnetic induction at O produce current in large arc between X and y is:-1) 0.6T in the inward direction.2)0.1T in the inward direction.3)0.6T in the outward direction.4)0.1 T in outward direction.

Let us consider the magnetic field due to current flowing in anticlockwise direction in a
circular arc of radius R and  length L as shown in figure 1.

Magnetic field B at centre O is given by Biot-savarts  law ,  B = Tesla
Hence magnetic field is proportional to arc Length and Current.
If current flows in anti-clockwise direction magnetic field is outward.
If current flows in clockwise direction magnetic field is inward.

In Figure.2, if  anti-clockwise direction current flowing in minor arc produces 0.1T magnetic field at O in outward direction,
Magnitude of Magnetic field at O due to clockwise direction current flowing in major arc depends on the product of current and arc length.

since arc length of major arc is 5 times of arc length of minor arc, its resistance increases by 5 times ,

hence current in major arc becomes (1/5) of current flowing in minor arc.
Hence the product of ( current × arc Length ) remains same, because current becomes 1/5 and length becomes 5 times.
Hence magnitude of magnetic field will be same.
But due to change in current direction, direction of magnetic field due to major arc is inward.

Hence answer to the question :-  (2) 0.1T inward direction
