20.86. Set Up: The magnetic field of a long straight wire is given by The magnetic field at the center of a circular loop is Let 1 refer to the wire and let 2 refer to the loop. The center of the loop is a distance from the wire. By the right-hand rule, at the center of the loop the magnetic field due to the wire is directed into the page and the magnetic field due to the loop is directed out of the page. Solve: Since and are in opposite directions, is larger than so the net field is in the direction of out of the page. 20.87. Set Up: The direction of the current is shown in Figure 20.87. The direction of is given by the right-hand rule. Figure 20.87 Solve: (a) Below the line the magnetic field is toward the east. (b) The field due to the current is the same order of magnitude as the earth’s field so is a problem. 20.88. Set Up: Calculate the magnetic field of the wire at the location of the electron. Then calculate the force this field exerts on the electron. The electron has negative charge so the force on it is opposite to the right-hand rule

    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.
