(b) From the assignment sheet we get the nichrome re- sistivity = 1 . 10- 6 m. Therefore the resistance is R = L A = (1 . 10- 6 m)(0 . 22 m) (1 . 25 10- 4 m) 2 = 4 . 5 (c) Each battery provides 1 . 5 V, so in series they pro- vide a potential difference of 3 V. Using Ohms Law: I = V R = 3 V 4 . 5 = . 67 A Problem A17 Magnetic force on a moving particle The magnetic force is ~ F = q~v ~ B . The magnitude of this force is F = | q | vB sin , where is the angle be- tween ~v and ~ B if I line them up tail to tail. In this problem = 60 , so F = (5 10- 6 C)(1 . 3 10 5 m)(0 . 8 T) sin(60 ) = . 450 N As for direction, ~v ~ B points into the page, by the cross- product RHR. But since this is a negative charge, the direction is flipped: the force points out of the page. Wolfson Chapter 24-32 Power due to current flow is given by P = V I , always. Since were given a resistance, we want to use Ohms Law: V = IR . Solve for I = V/R and plug this into the power expression to get P = V ( V/R ) = V 2 /R . This is exactly what we need, since were given P and R , and we want to find V : V =...
