There is a magnetic field B in the +z direction. Draw a diagram illustrating the situation, to help you answer the following questions. What is the direction of E parallel , the electric field that causes the current to flow? -x -x What is the direction of the drift velocity of the mobile electrons? +x +x What is the direction of the magnetic force on the moving electrons? +y +y What is the direction of E transverse , the electric field due to the Hall effect, inside the wire? +y +y If the mobile charges had been positive (holes) instead of negative, what would have been the direction of the magnetic force on the moving positive charges? +y +y If the mobile charges had been positive instead of negative, what would have been the direction of the transverse electric field? -y -y Solution or Explanation Remember that positive charges (holes) would move in the direction of conventional current (in the direction of E parallel ), but negative charges (electrons) move opposite to E parallel . 2. 9/9 points Question: MI3 21.4.P.066 Ch21 HW4 F2010 (Homework) Stefan Coreth PY 208, section 002M, Fall 2010 Instructor: Laura I.
