Exam 3 Solution
1. In the ±gure
R
represents a variable resistor and the battery supplies an emf that
drives current clockwise around the loop. The following is done. The resistance
is steadily increased and then steadily decreased. For each stage of this sequence
(in order), what is the direction of the induced emf by the inductor? CW denotes
clockwise, CCW denotes counterclockwise, and NC means no change.
Answer:
CW, CCW
Solution:
When the resistance is increased, the current in the clockwise direction is decreased. To oppose that the
induced emf will be in the clockwise direction. When the resistance is decreased, the current in the clockwise direction
will increase. To oppose that the induced emf will be in the counterclockwise direction.
2. A solenoid that is 85.0 cm long has a crosssectional area of 17.0 cm
2
. There are 950 turns of wire carrying current of
10.0 A. What is the total energy stored in the magnetic ±eld inside the solenoid (neglect end e²ects)?
Answer:
0.113 J
Solution:
The magnetic ±eld in a solenoid is
B
=
μ

nI
, where
n
is the number of terms per unit length. The energy
density is
u
=

U
=

Vol., where the volume inside the solenoid is its length times its
crosssectional area.
3. A square wire loop with 2.00 m sides is perpendicular to a uniform magnetic ±eld,
with half the area of the loop in the ±eld as shown. The loop contains an ideal
battery with emf

the circuit, and its direction?

, which is also the induced emf. Because the ³ux is out of the page and decreasing in magnitude, via
Lenz’s law the induced current is in the CCW direction. Thus, the induced emf and the emf of the battery are in the
same direction. The net emf is 15

4. The magnetic ±eld of a cylindrical magnet that has a poleface diameter of 3.3 cm can be varied sinusoidally between 28.0
and 30.0 T at a frequency of 15 Hz. At a radial distance of 1.4 cm, what is the amplitude of the electric ±eld induced by
the variation? (Note that the magnetic ±eld is directed along the axis of the cylinder.)
Answer:
0.66 V/m
Solution:
The amplitude of the magnetic ±eld has the form
