CHAPTER 27 – Magnetism
1.
(

)
The maximum force will be produced when the wire and the magnetic field are perpendicular,
so we have
F
max
=
ILB
,
or
F
max
/
L
=
IB
= (7.40 A)(0.90 T) =
6.7 N/m
.
(
b
) We find the force per unit length from
F
/
L
=
IB
sin 45.0° = (
F
max
/
L
) sin 45.0° = (6.7 N/m) sin 45.0° =
4.7 N/m
.
2.
The force on the wire is produced by the component of the magnetic field perpendicular to the wire:
F
=
ILB
sin
θ
= (150 A)(240 m)(5.0
×
10
–5
T) sin 60° =
1.6 N perpendicular to the wire and to
B
.
3.
For the maximum force the wire is perpendicular to the field, so we find the current from
F
=
ILB
;
0.900 N =
I
(4.20 m)(0.0800 T), which gives
I
=
2.68 A
.
4.
The force on the wire is produced by the component of the magnetic field perpendicular to the wire:
F
=
ILB
sin 40°
= (4.5 A)(1.5 m)(5.5
×
10
–5
T) sin 40° =
2.4
×
10
–4
N perpendicular to the wire and to
B
.
5.
The maximum force will be produced when the wire and the magnetic field are perpendicular,
so we have
F
max
=
ILB
;
1.18 N = (8.75 A)(0.555 m)
B
, which gives
B
=
0.243 T
.
6.
The force is maximum when the current and
field are perpendicular:
F
max
=
ILB
.
When the current makes an angle
θ
with the
field, the force is
F
=
ILB
sin
θ
.
Thus we have
F
/
F
max
= sin
θ
= 0.45,
or
θ
=
27°.
7.
(
a
)
We see from the diagram that the magnetic field is up,
so the top pole face is a
south pole
.
(
b
)
We find the current from the length of wire in the field:
F
=
ILB
;
5.30 N =
I
(0.10 m)(0.15 T), which gives
I
=
3.5
×

.
(
c
) The new force is
F
′
=
ILB
sin
θ
=
F
sin
θ
= (5.30 N) sin 80° =
5.22 N
.
Note that the wire could be tipped either way.
8.
We have the same upward force on the semicircular wire.
The force on each of the horizontal wires will also be upward.
Thus the total force is
