PHY-2054C-002, Fall 2008 Instructor: Dr. Bhattacharya Quiz #5 KEY , Tuesday, Oct 07 1. The conduction rod ab as shown in the fgure makes a Frictionless contact with metal rails ca and db . The apparatus is in a uniForm magnetic feld oF 1.2 T, perpendicular to the plane oF the fgure. x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x v B 50 cm d b a c (a) ±ind the magnitude oF the emf induced in the rod when it is moving toward the right with a speed oF 10 m/s. ε = vLB = 10 · 0 . 5 · 1 . 2 V = 6 V (b) In what direction does the current ²ow in the rod ? According to Lenz’s law the induced current will ²ow in an anticlockwise direction (to create the induced ²ux coming out oF the paper). (c) IF the resistance oF the circuit

Unformatted text preview: abdc is constant 1.6 Ω, fnd the magnitude and the direction oF the Force requires to keep the rod moving toward the right with the same constant velocity 10 m/s. The rod will experience a Force due to the induced current in presence oF the magnetic feld. Since the induced current ²ows From b to a , the direction oF this Force is toward leFt with magnitude ± induced = ILB = ε R LB = 6 1 . 6 · . 5 · 1 . 2 N = 2 . 25 N ∴ in order to keep the rod moving with constant velocity one needs to apply an external Force oF magnitude 2.25 N toward right....
