54. (a) By imagining that each of the segments bg and cf (which are shown in the Fgure as having no cur- rent) actually has a pair of currents, where both currents are of the same magnitude ( i ) but opposite direction (so that the pair e±ectively cancels in the Fnal sum), one can justify the superposition. (b) The dipole moment of path abcdefgha is ±µ = ±µ bcfgb + ±µ abgha + ±µ cdefc =( ia 2 )( ˆ j ˆ i+ ˆ i) = ia 2 ˆ j =( 6 . 0 A)(0 . 10 m) 2 ˆ j=6 . 0 × 10 2 A · m 2 ˆ j .

Unformatted text preview: the dipole is perpendicular to the axis of the dipole. You can check easily that if an electric dipole is used, the Feld would be E ≈ (1 / 4 πε )( p/x 3 ), which is half of the magnitude of E for a point on the y axis the same distance from the dipole. By analogy, in our case B is also half the value or B (0 , 5 . 0 m , 0), i.e., B (5 . 0 m , , 0) = 1 2 B (0 , 5 . 0 m , 0) = 1 2 (9 . 6 × 10 − 11 T) = 4 . 8 × 10 − 11 T . Just like the electric dipole case, ± B (5 . 0 m , , 0) points in the negative y direction....
