Question and Answer

Must every magnetic configuration have a north pole and a south pole? What about the field due to a toroid?


It is only possible when the source of the field has a net non-zero magnetic moment. In a toroid, there is always some gap left at the junction where the current enter and leaves the toroid. Those two junctions act as north and south poles.

\(5.00\) mL of a gas containing only carbon and hydrogen was mixed with an excess of oxygen \((30mL)\) and the mixture exploded by means of an electric spark. After the explosion, the volume of the mixed gases remaining was \(25\) mL. On adding a concentrated solution of \(KOH\), the volume further diminished to \(15\) mL, the residual gas being pure oxygen. All volumes have been reduced to NTP. Calculate the molecular formula of the hydrocarbon gas.
