Some Astrophysics (3) If “space weather” is stormy, the solar wind is more intense. • solar wind penetrates atmosphere • lots of energy deposited • excited atoms emit light (lots of QM happens) – p. Aurora Borealis – p. Force on a current I If current flows in a curved path, d F = I d l × B – p. Torque on a Current Loop – p. 1 Simple dc motor The current reverses at the right time so that the torque keeps the armature spinning in the same – p. 1...
