Unformatted text preview: First Name Last Name ID Section Question 5 (30 points): For each of the three scenarios depicted below, determine if the proton (denoted 11+) experiences a magnetic force. If so, in which direction does the magnetic force point? Be sure to thoroughly explain your answers! a). s p. N L. P At the location of the proton, the field produced by the permanent magnet points upward, anti-parallel to the direc— tion of the velocity (this is because the field lines produced by permanent magnets form loops that go in the south and go out the north pole of the magnet). Since E is anti-parallel to 17, 0 2 180°, sin0 = 0, and the Lorentz force W = q WI lg sin0 vanishes. Thus the proton experiences no magnetic force. b). Here the current carrying wire is infinitely long and straight. At the location of the proton, the field produced by the current carrying wire is into the page by the first right hand rule. Using the second right hand rule then gives us that the magnetic force on the proton is upward. c). Here the negatively charged bar moves to the right at constant speed, as indicated. Ubar Notice that a bar of negative charges traveling to the right is equivalent to an electric current traveling to the left at the same location. Right hand rule #1 would then give that the magnetic field is into the page at the location of the proton, and applying right hand rule #2 gives us that the magnetic force on the proton points downward. ...

    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.
