Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A 0 . 9 m long wire weighing 0 . 072 N / m is suspended directly above an infinitely straight wire. The top wire carries a current of 47 A and the bottom wire carries a current of 82 A . The permeablity of free space is 1 . 25664 × 10 - 6 N / A 2 . Find the distance of separation between the wires so that the top wire will be held in place by magnetic repulsion. Correct answer: 10 . 7056 mm. Explanation: Let : I 1 = 47 A , I 2 = 82 A , λ f = 0 . 072 N / m , and μ 0 = 1 . 25664 × 10 - 6 N / A 2 . In order for the system to be in equilibrium, the magnetic force per unit length λ F on the top wire must be equal to its weight per unit length. Thus λ F = F L = μ 0 I 1 I 2 2 π d so d = μ 0 I 1 I 2 2 π λ F = (1 . 25664 × 10 - 6 N / A 2 ) (47 A) (82 A) 2 π (0 . 072 N / m) = 0 . 0107056 m = 10 . 7056 mm . 002 10.0 points A rectangular loop with dimensions (hor- izontal = 0 . 11 m) × (vertical= 0 . 253 m), is suspended by a string, and the lower hori- zontal section of the loop is immersed in a magnetic field. If a current of 6 A is maintained in the loop, what is the magnitude of the magnetic field required to produce a tension of 0 . 035 N in the supporting string? Assume: Gravitational force is negligible. Correct answer: 0 . 0530303 T. Explanation: Let : F = 0 . 035 N , I = 6 A , and l hor = 0 . 11 m . The magnitude of the force on the lower leg is | F | = | I hor × B | . Therefore, the magnitude of the magnetic field due to this force is B = F I hor = 0 . 035 N (6 A) (0 . 11 m) = 0 . 0530303 T . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points Consider a current in the long, straight wire which lies in the plane of the rectangular loop, that also carries a current, as shown.

toupal (rgt374) – Homework 08 – Chiu – (58295) 2 11 cm 13 cm 66 cm 4 . 3 A 15 A x y Find the magnitude of the net force exerted on the loop by the magnetic field created by the long wire. Correct answer: 4 . 1925 × 10 - 5 N. Explanation: Let : c = 0 . 11 m , a = 0 . 13 m , = 0 . 66 m , I 1 = 4 . 3 A , and I 2 = 15 A . c a I 1 I 2 x y The magnetic forces on the top and the bottom segments of the rectangle cancel. We now concern ourselves with the seg- ments of the rectangle which are parallel to the long wire. Using Ampere’s law, the mag- netic fields from the long wire at distances c and ( c + a ) away are B c = - μ 0 I 1 2 π c ˆ k B ca = - μ 0 I 1 2 π ( c + a ) ˆ k . The forces on the left and right vertical segments of the rectangle are, respectively, F c = I 2 B c and F ca = I 2 B ca . The forces are oppositely directed since the current I 2 has a direction in the loop at distances c op- posite from the current I 2 in the loop at a distance c + a , away from the long wire. The net force is F = μ 0 I 1 I 2 2 π + 1 c + a - 1 c ˆ ı = μ 0 (4 . 3 A) (15 A) (0 . 66 m) 2 π × + 1 0 . 11 m + 0 . 13 m - 1 0 . 11 m ˆ ı = - 4 . 1925 × 10 - 5 N ˆ ı | F | = 4 . 1925 × 10 - 5 N . 004 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What is the direction of the net force?
