MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View An Air-Filled Toroidal Solenoid An air-filled toroidal solenoid has a mean radius of 15.1 and a cross-sectional area of 4.99 (see the figure). The current flowing through it is 12.5 , and it is desired that the energy stored within the solenoid be at least 0.387 . Part A What is the least number of turns that the winding must have? Hint A.1 Hint not displayed Hint A.2 Hint not displayed Hint A.3 Hint not displayed Hint A.4 Hint not displayed Hint A.5 Hint not displayed Hint A.6 Hint not displayed Express your answer numerically, as a whole number, to three significant figures. ANSWER: 2740 turns Induced EMF and Current in a Shrinking Loop

MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View Shrinking Loop. A circular loop of flexible iron wire has an initial circumference of 170 , but its circumference is decreasing at a constant rate of 15.0 due to a tangential pull on the wire. The loop is in a constant uniform magnetic field of magnitude 1.00 , which is oriented perpendicular to the plane of the loop. Part A Find the (magnitude of the) emf induced in the loop after exactly time 1.00 has passed since the circumference of the loop started to decrease. Hint A.1 Hint not displayed Hint A.2 Hint not displayed Hint A.3 Hint not displayed Hint A.4 Hint not displayed Hint A.5 Hint not displayed Express your answer numerically (in volts) to at least three significant digits. ANSWER: = 3.70×10 - 2 V Part B Find the direction of the induced current in the loop as viewed looking along the direction of the magnetic field. ANSWER: clockwise counterclockwise The induced current flows in the direction that tends to prevent the flux through the coil from decreasing. That is, it adds to the magnetic field through the coil as the coil's area is decreasing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
