Unformatted text preview: Exam 3 – white version Physics 2760 FS 2008 Last Name______________________________ First Name_____________________________ ID # ___________________ This is a closed book exam. I understand, pursuant to University Regulations on academic honesty, that I am not to use any notes or information other than what is in the official, non‐annotated formula sheet. Signature_______________________________________ For multiple choice questions, please make sure that you circle the letter for the answer which you believe to be correct and only that answer. If more than one answer is circled for the same problem, you will not receive credit for it. Don’t get hung up on questions. The answer to question nine is a. They should take only one or two minutes each. If you find yourself spending more than a few minutes on a multiple choice question you are probably looking at it the wrong way. You should skip it for now and come back to it later. Don’t forget to use your right hand, not your left hand when using the right hand rule. For full credit show your work for solutions to questions that require calculations. Explain from where you start to solve the problem and show your math flowing from it for full credit. No shown work, no credit! Relax, read carefully, think – and then read everything again. During the exam, if you have questions please raise your hand and the TA or the instructor will come to you and provide help. 1. (5 points) A proton is released such that its initial velocity is from right to left across this page. The proton's path, however, is deflected in a direction toward the bottom edge of the page due to the presence of a uniform magnetic field. What is the direction of this field? a) out of the page b) into the page c) from bottom edge to top edge of the page d) from right to left across the page e) from left to right across the page 2. (5 points) A current‐carrying wire is pulled away from a conducting rectangular loop. As the wire is moving, there is a) a clockwise current around the loop. b) a counterclockwise current around the loop. c) no current around the loop. 3. (5 points) A proton is traveling in the positive x direction. A uniform electric field E is in the negative y direction. If a uniform magnetic field with the appropriate magnitude and direction also exists in the region, the total force on the electron will be zero. The appropriate direction for the magnetic field is: a) the positive y direction y b) the negative y direction vx c) into the page d) out of the page e) the negative x direction E 4. (5 points) Shown below are six situations where three long straight parallel wires carry currents either into or out of the page. In each situation, point P is midway between two adjacent wires. Circle the case for which the total magnetic field is the strongest at point P. 5.

The current in the upper wire is directed out of the plane, while the current in I the lower wire is directed into the plane. If a third wire is placed at point P with its current directed into the plane, what will be the direction of the net force exertedon this third wire by the P other two? a) in the positive y–direction b) in the negative x–direction c) in the positive x–direction I d) in the negative y–direction e) perpendicular to the plane of the drawing 7. (5 points) The value of the line integral of the magnetic field B around the closed path in the direction indicated in the figure is ∫ B ⋅ d s = 2π ×10 −6 Tm .

For which of these does the magnetic torque on the dipole have the greatest magnitude? 10. (5 points) A circular loop of area 2.0 m2 carries a current of 3.0 A and has a unit normal vector to its surface of 2i + 3k . What is the x component of the torque (in N∙m) on this loop when it is placed in a uniform magnetic field B = 2i − j (in T)? a) 42 b) 18 c) 23 d) 4 e) 12 11. (25 points) Consider the arrangement shown in the figure below. A metal rod of length l = 1.2 m is resting on two parallel metal rails connected through a resistor R. The metal rod and rails are considered to have no resistance. A uniform magnetic field of magnitude B = 2.5 T is oriented into the page. a) (5 points) If the speed of the rod is 2 m/s to the right, calculate the magnitude of the induced emf. b) (10 points) If R = 6.0 Ω, determine the magnitude and the direction of the induced current. c) (5 points) Calculate the applied force required to move the bar to the right at a constant speed of 4 m/s. d) (5 points) At what speed should the bar be moved to produce a current of 0.5 A in the resistor? 12. (25 points) A long solenoid (n = 1500 turns/m) has a current I = 4t + 3t 2 , where the current is in A and t is in seconds, passing through its coils. A flat circular coil with a cross‐sectional area of 0.15 m2 is inside the solenoid and coaxial with the solenoid. a) (10 points) Calculate the magnetic field inside the solenoid at t = 4.0 seconds. b) (15 points) Calculate the magnitude of the emf induced in the flat circular coil at t = 2.0 seconds.
