Unformatted text preview: 230 Chapt. 30 Currents Causing Magnetic Fields EQUILATERAL TRIANGLE of side a . The angles at the corners of the triangle are all 60 ◦ , of course. HINT: Draw a diagram. i) Which way must the net force on any one of the wires point? HINT: Exploit symmetry. ii) What is the magnitude of the force per unit length f on any one of the wires? a) (i) Away from the triangle center. (ii) f = μ I 2 2 πa × √ 3 . b) (i) Away from the triangle center. (ii) f = μ I 2 2 πa × 2 . c) (i) To the triangle center. (ii) f = μ I 2 2 πa × √ 3 . d) (i) To the triangle center. (ii) f = μ I 2 2 πa × 3 √ 2 . e) (i) To the triangle center. (ii) f = μ I 2 2 πa . Full-Answer Problems 030 qfull 00100 3 3 0 tough math: finite straight wire magnetic field 1. A thin, straight wire of length L carries current I . The current comes out of nowhere and goes into nowhere which is really unrealistic. a) Draw a diagram of the system.
