MCQ on Hall Effect Sensor

1. Hall effect
2. Inductive
3. LVDT
4. hygrometer

1. True
2. False

Option 2: False

Explanation:
The hall effect element is a type of transducer used for measuring the magnetic field by converting it into an emf.
The direct measurement of the magnetic field is not possible. Thus the Hall Effect Transducer is used.
The transducer converts the magnetic field into an electric quantity which is easily measured by the analogue and digital meters
(ii) The magnitude of Hall voltage depends upon the current, strength of magnetic field and the property of conducting material.
1. Only statement (i) is correct.
2. Only statement (ii) is correct.
3. Both statements are correct.
4. Both statements are wrong.

Option 3: Both statements are correct.

then, Hall voltage VH is given by
1. VH = (KH B) / (I t)
2. VH = (KH t) / (I B)
3. VH = KH I B / t
4. VH = KH I B t

Option 3: VH = KH I B / t

Que.5 Which of the following is not a material used in Hall effect sensor?
1. Caesium-Antimony
2. Gallium-Arsenide
3. Indium-Antimonide
4. Indium-Arsenide

Option 1: Caesium-Antimony

Que.6 Force exerted by magnetic field in Hall Effect transducers is ____________.
1. Lorentz force
2. Hall Effect force
3. Magnetic force
4. Electric force

Option 1: Lorentz force

Que.7 Hall effect transducer can measure ______ current.
1. a.c.
2. d.c.
3. a.c. or d.c.
