Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points An infinite sheet lying in yz plane is carrying a current which is uniform along the y direction, as illustrated below. The current is flowing along the negative z direction. The permeability of free space is 1 . 25664 10 6 N / A 2 . b a x y A C D F E z What is the direction of magnetic field vector B at point A, which is located on the negative xaxis ( i.e. , x < 0)? Caution: See the sketch to confirm the location of the point A. 1. hatwide B = ( i j ) 2 2. hatwide B = ( i + j ) 2 3. hatwide B = correct 4. hatwide B = k 5. hatwide B = 6. hatwide B = ( i j ) 2 7. hatwide B = 8. hatwide B = k 9. hatwide B = 10. hatwide B = ( i + j ) 2 Explanation: Basic Concepts: Righthand rule for de termining the direction of vector B . Amp eres Law: contintegraldisplay vector B vector ds = I . Solution: Consider that the current sheet consists of infinite number of current wires connected in parallel. We can easily deter mine the direction of vector B for one wire with righthand rule. Then the direction of vector B for two wires set together in parallel can be found (as illustrated below) by superposition prin ciple. By symmetry, the direction of vector B due to an infinite current sheet is therefore along positive y direction ( ) in the part of space where x < 0. 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points Amperes Law states that contintegraldisplay vector B dvectors = I Denote the magnetic field at A by B A . Eval uate the loop integral along the rectangular loop CDEFC , where EF = a and FC = b . The magnitude of this loop integral is given by 1. contintegraldisplay vector B dvectors = b B A . 2. contintegraldisplay vector B dvectors = a + b 2 B A . 3. contintegraldisplay vector B dvectors = ( a + b ) B A . 4. contintegraldisplay vector B dvectors = a B A . mcconnell (kam2342) homework22 Turner (60230) 2 5....
