PC1432 Physics IIE: Tutorial 4 Question 1: Toroidal solenoid Figure 1: Toroidal solenoid A certain toroidal solenoid has a rectangular cross section (see Fig. 1 ). It has N uniformly spaced turns, with air inside. Do not assume the the field to be uniform inside the cross section. (a) Show that the magnetic flux through the cross section of the toroid is Φ B = μ 0 Nih 2 π ln parenleftbigg b a parenrightbigg . (1) (b) Show that the inductance of the toroidal solenoid is given by L = μ 0 N 2 h 2 π ln parenleftbigg b a parenrightbigg . (2) (c) The fraction b/a may be written as b a = a + b a a = 1 + b a a . (3) Using the power series expansion ln(1 + z 2 ) = z + z 2 / 2 + . . . valid for | z | < 1, show that when b a a , the inductance is approximately equal to L μ 0 N 2 h ( b a ) 2 πa (4) 1

Question 2: Polarization I Figure 2: A beam of unpolarized sunlight strikes the vertical plastic wall of a water tank at an unknown angle. Some of the light reflects from the wall and enters the water, as seen in the Fig. 2 . The refractive index of the plastic wall is 1.61. If the light that has been

### What students are saying

• 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.
