The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A long cylindrical wire of radius 18 cm carries a current of 84 A uniformly distributed over its cross-sectional area. The permeability of free space is 4 π × 10- 7 T · m / A. Find the magnetic energy per unit length within the wire. Correct answer: 0 . 0001764 J / m. Explanation: r a dr Let : a = 18 cm , I = 84 A , and μ = 4 π × 10- 7 T · m / A . Use Ampere’s law, the magnetic field inside the wire at a distance r < a from its center is B = μ 2 π r I C = μ 2 π r πr 2 πa 2 I = μ r I 2 πa 2 . The magnetic energy within the cylindrical annulus is d U m = B 2 2 μ V annulus = B 2 2 μ 2 π r ‘ dr = B 2 μ π r ‘ dr = µ μ r I 2 π a 2 ¶ 2 π r ‘ dr μ = μ 4 π I 2 r 3 ‘ dr a 4 . Thus the magnetic energy per unit length within the wire is U m ‘ = Z a d U m ‘ = μ 4 π I 2 a 4 Z a r 3 dr = μ 4 π I 2 a 4 a 4 4 = μ 4 π I...
