Unformatted text preview: Physics 880.06: Problem Set 6 Due Tuesday, May 24, 2011 by 11:59 P. M. Note: please turn these problems by Tuesday, May 24, at 11:59 P. M. 1. Consider a single Abrikosov vortex parallel to the z axis. Assume that this vortex experiences three forces. The first is a Magnus force due to an applied uniform ac current density, J ac ( t ) = J ac x cos( t ). The second is a frictional force F f =- v , where v is the velocity. The last is a pinning force F pin =- k r per unit vortex length, where r = ( x, y ) is the two dimensional vector describing the position of the vortex in the xy plane and k is a pinning constant. (a). Find the vortex velocity v ( t ). (Consider only the vortex velocity induced by the applied current J .) (b). Suppose the current density is instead J ac ( x cos( t ) + y sin( t )). Find the vortex velocity in this case. (c). Describe the vortex orbit in each case....
