PHY2061 R. D. Field Solutions Chapter 32 Page 1 of 5 Chapter 32 Solutions Problem 1: A charged particle, Q = 0.5 C , enters a region with a uniform magnetic field z y x B ° 4 ° 3 ° 2 + + = r ( in Tesla ). If its velocity is given by z y x v ° 2 ° 3 ° 2 + + = r ( in m/s ), what is the magnitude of the magnetic force on the particle ( in N )? Answer: 3.6 Solution: We know that the magnetic force on a particle is ) ° 4 ° 6 ( 4 3 2 2 3 2 ° ° ° y x Q z y x Q B v Q F = = × = r r r . The magnitude of the force is N N Q F 6 . 3 52 ) 5 . 0 ( 16 36 = = + = . Problem 2: A charged particle, Q=0.5 C , and mass M = 200 grams enters a region with a uniform magnetic field y x B ° 1 ° 2 = r ( in Tesla ). What is the magnitude of the magnetic force on the particle ( in N ), if its velocity is y x v ° 2 ° 4 = r ( in m/s )? Answer: zero Solution: We know that the magnetic force on a particle is 0 0 1 2 0 2 4 ° ° ° = = × = z y x Q B v Q F r r r . Note that v is in the same direction as B and hence the magnetic force is zero. Problem 3: One end of a straight wire segment is located at (x,y,z) = (0,0,0) and the other end is at (1m,2m,3m) . A current of 2 Amps flows through the segment. The segment sits in a uniform magnetic field y x B ° 1 ° 2 = r ( in
