PHY2054 Spring 2008 1 P r o f . P . K u m a r P r o f . P . A v e r y A p r i l 3 , 2 0 0 8 Exam 3 Solutions 1. ( Ch. 20 ) In the circuit shown, L = 56 mH, R = 4.6 Ω and V = 12.0 V. The switch S has been open for a long time then is suddenly closed at t = 0. At what value of t (in msec) will the current in the inductor reach 1.1 A? (1) 6.67 (2) 10.5 (3) 2.88 (4) 19.0 (5) None of these The current in an RL circuit, starting at 0, is ( ) / max 1 t ii e τ =− , where / LR = and max / iV R = and V is the voltage. Here i max = 12.0 / 4.6 = 2.609 and = 0.056 / 4.6 = 12.17 msec. The solution is () max ln 1 / 6.67 ti i = msec. 2. Refer to the previous problem. What is the total energy stored in the inductor a long time after the switch is closed? (1) 0.19 J (2) 0.048 J (3) 0.76 J (4) 0.034 J (5) None of these After a long time, the inductor can be ignored and the current in the inductor is i = 12.0/4.6 = 2.61 A. The energy in the inductor is 2 1 2 0.19 L UL i == J.

PHY2054 Spring 2008 2 3. ( Prob. 20.6 ) A solenoid 6.00 cm in diameter and 10.0 cm long has 500 turns and carries a current of 15.0 A. Calculate the magnetic flux (in webers) through a circular cross-sectional area in the middle of the solenoid. (1) 2.7 × 10 4 (2) 5.1 × 10 2 (3) 4.7 × 10 4 (4) 7.5 × 10 4 (5) None of these The magnetic flux through the area is 22 0 B rB r n i φπ π μ == , where i is the current, r is the radius of the coil and n is the number of windings/meter. This yields φ B = 2.7 × 10 4 webers . 4. ( Prob. 21.47 ) A microwave oven generates electromagnetic waves of frequency 2.4 GHz that are reflected by the walls and form standing waves that heat food as the energy of the waves are absorbed. The standing-wave pattern causes food to be heated unevenly, with burn marks at the wave peaks. If the distance between the burn marks is 4.8 cm, what is the speed of the microwaves inside the food in km/s? (1) 2.3 × 10 5 (2) 4.7 × 10 5 (3) 2.9 × 10 5 (4) 1.2 × 10 5 (5) None of these The points of highest intensity occur every half wavelength, thus λ = 9.6 cm. The velocity is thus v = f = 0.096 × 2.4 10 9 = 2.3 10 8 m/s = 2.3 × 10 5 km/s. 5. ( Prob. 21.57 ) A real inductor has resistance because it is composed of a coil of wire with non- zero resistivity. To measure the inductance of a coil, a student places it across a 12.0-V battery and measures a current of 0.72 A. The student then connects the coil to a 30.0-V (rms) 60 Hz generator and measures an rms current of 0.86 A. What is the inductance of the coil?
