1 Physics 211L Final Exam January 2006 Name:________________________________ID__________________ Section: M-1 M-3 T-1 T-3 W-1 W-3 Th-1 Th-3 F-1 F-3 1. The magnetic field due to a long straight current -carrying wire is measured by means of a Tesla meter, which has not been properly zeroed ( Ignore the magnetic field of the Earth ). The magnetic field H and the probe-head distance from the wire d are recorded, with the following results: H (mT) d (mm) 3.42 2.0 2.26 3.1 1.80 3.9 1.55 5.1 1.32 6.2 The current is kept constant at 30.1 A; the ammeter tolerance is 2%. Write the relation between H and d . Choose the proper variables and use linear regression to find the permeability of free space ( 0 ) and the meter reading when it is very far from the wire. Compare 0 to the literature value x 10 -7 SI. (60%)
