Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A conductor consists of a circular loop of radius 0 . 157 m and straight long sections, as shown. The wire lies in the plane of the paper and carries a current of 6 . 08 A. I R Find the magnitude of the magnetic field at the center of the loop. The permeability of free space is 1 . 25664 10 6 N / A 2 . Correct answer: 3 . 20776 10 5 T. Explanation: Let : = 1 . 25664 10 6 N / A 2 , I = 6 . 08 A , and R = 0 . 157 m . We can think of the total magnetic field as the superposition of the field due to the long straight wire having magnitude B straight = I 2 R and directed into the page and the field due to the circular loop having magnitude B loop = I 2 R , also directed into the page. Using appropriate right hand rules, both B fields are in the same direction, so the resultant magnetic field is B = B straight + B loop = parenleftbigg 1 + 1 parenrightbigg I 2 R = parenleftbigg 1 + 1 parenrightbigg (1 . 25664 10 6 N / A 2 ) (6 . 08 A) 2 (0 . 157 m) = 3 . 20776 10 5 T . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The set up is shown in the figure, where 36 A is flowing in the wire segments, AB = CD = 49 m, and the wire segment arc has a radius 25 m subtending an angle of 90 .

Correct answer: 2 . 26195 10 7 T. Explanation: Let : I = 36 A , = 1 . 25664 10 6 T m / A , and a = 25 m . Along CD dvectors and r are antiparallel, so again dvectors r = 0 . Therefore that segment of the current also creates no magnetic field at O . Along BC dvectors is perpendicular to r so | dvectors r | = ds = a d . Also dvectors r is in the same direction for all dvectors along BC , while r = a , so the magnitude of the magnetic field at O due to ABCD is B = 4 I integraldisplay / 2 a d a 2 = 4 a I vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle / 2 = I 8 a = (1 . 25664 10 6 T m / A) (36 A) 8 (25 m) = 2 . 26195 10 7 T . hussain (wh4892) hw 10 Opyrchal (121104) 2 003 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the magnitude of the magnetic field at O due to the current segment AB alone. Correct answer: 0 T. Explanation: The Biot-Savart law is d vector B = 4 I dvectors r r 2 for the magnetic field due to a small current segment, I dvectors, at a point a distance r from the segment. r is the unit vector pointing from the segment to the point O. Along AB dvectors is parallel to r , so dvectors r = 0 . Therefore d vector B =0 and vector B = integraldisplay d vector B = 0 T ....
