ragsdale (zdr82) – HW7 – ditmire – (58335) 1 This print-out should have 28 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A wire carrying a current 30 A has a length 0 . 1 m between the pole faces of a magnet at an angle 60 (see the figure). The magnetic field is approximately uniform at 0 . 5 T. We ignore the field beyond the pole pieces. θ I B What is the force on the wire? Correct answer: 1 . 29904 N. Explanation: Let : I = 30 A , = 0 . 1 m , θ = 60 , and B = 0 . 5 T . we use F = I B sin θ , so F = I B sin θ = (30 A) (0 . 1 m) (0 . 5 T) sin 60 = 1 . 29904 N . 002 10.0 points The magnetic force on a straight 0.45 m seg- ment of wire carrying a current of 4.5 A is 0.31 N. What is the magnitude of the component of the magnetic field that is perpendicular to the wire? Correct answer: 0 . 153086 T. Explanation: Let : = 0 . 45 m , I = 4 . 5 A , and F m = 0 . 31 N . The magnetic force is F m = I B B = F m I = 0 . 31 N (4 . 5 A) (0 . 45 m) = 0 . 153086 T 003 10.0 points A rectangular loop of wire hangs vertically as shown in the figure. A magnetic field is di- rected horizontally, perpendicular to the wire, and points out of the page at all points as rep- resented by the symbol . The magnetic field is very nearly uniform along the horizontal portion of the wire ab (length is 0 . 1 m) which is near the center of a large magnet produc- ing the field. The top portion of the wire loop is free of the field. The loop hangs from a balance which measures a downward force (in addition to the gravitational force) of 3 × 10 - 2 N when the wire carries a current 0 . 2 A. a b I I F B What is the magnitude of the magnet field B at the center of the magnet? Correct answer: 1 . 5 T. Explanation: Let : F = 3 × 10 - 2 , = 0 . 1 m , and I = 0 . 2 A .

ragsdale (zdr82) – HW7 – ditmire – (58335) 2 The magnetic forces on the two vertical sec- tions of the wire loop point to the left and right, respectively. They are equal but in opposite directions, so they add up to zero. Thus the net magnetic force on the loop is that on the horizontal section ab whose length is = 0 . 1 m (and θ = 90 so sin θ = 1), and B = F I = 3 × 10 - 2 N (0 . 2 A) (0 . 1 m) = 1 . 5 T . 004 (part 1 of 4) 10.0 points Two wires each carry a current I in the xy plane and are subjected to an external uni- form magnetic field B , which is directed along the positive y axis as shown in the figure. R I wire #2 I wire #1 B L L x y What is the magnitude of the force on wire #1 due to the external B field? 1. B = (2 L + R ) I B 2. B = I 2 (2 L + 2 R ) B 3. B = L + R 2 I B 4. B = 2 I R L B 5. B = I ( L + R ) B 6. B = 2 I ( L + R ) B correct 7. B = 2 I L B 8. B = 4 I ( L + R ) B 9. B = (2 B L + 2 R ) I 10. B = 2 I R B Explanation: F = I d s × B = I × B . For wire 1, B , so the magnitude of F is just F = I B . For wire #1, = 2 L + 2 R . Thus F = 2 I ( R + L ) B . 005 (part 2 of 4) 10.0 points What is the magnitude of the force on the curved part of wire #2 due to the external magnetic field?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
