Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 28.1-28.5 001 10.0 points The segment of wire in the figure carries a current of 7 A, where the radius of the circular arc is 6 cm. The permeability of free space is 1 . 25664 × 10 − 6 T · m / A . 7 A 6 c m O Determine the magnitude of the magnetic field at point O , the origin of the arc. Correct answer: 18 . 326 μ T. Explanation: Let : I = 7 A and R = 6 cm = 0 . 06 m . For the straight sections d vectors × ˆ r = 0. The quarter circle makes one-fourth the field of a full loop B = μ I 8 R into the paper. Or, you can use the equation B = μ o I 4 π θ , where θ = π 2 . Thus the magnetic field is B = μ I 8 R , = (1 . 25664 × 10 − 6 T · m / A) (7 A) 8 (0 . 06 m) = 18 . 326 μ T , into the paper . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A conductor in the shape of a square, whose sides are of length 0 . 812 m, carries a clockwise 22 A current as shown in the figure below. . 812 m 22 A P What is the magnitude of the magnetic field at point P (at the center of the square loop) due to the current in the wire? Correct answer: 30 . 6529 μ T. Explanation: Let : μ = 1 . 25664 × 10 − 6 T m / A , ℓ = 0 . 812 m and I = 22 A . By the Biot-Savart law, dB = μ 4 π I dvectors × ˆ r r 2 . Consider a thin, straight wire carring a con- stant current I along the x-axis with the y- axis pointing towards the center of the square, as in the following figure. y x O r P x I ˆ r ds a θ Let us calculate the total magnetic field at the point P located at a distance a from the wire. An element dvectors is at a distance r from P . The direction of the field at P due to this element is out of the paper, since dvectors × ˆ r is out of the paper. In fact, all elements give a contribution directly out of the paper at P . Therefore, we have only to determine the aldawsari (ma28683) – HW11 – Betancourt – (16856) 2 magnitude of the field at P . In fact, taking the origin at O and letting P be along the positive y axis, with ˆ k being a unit vector pointing out of the paper, we see that dvectors × ˆ r = ˆ k | dvectors × ˆ r | = ˆ k ( dx sin θ ) ....
