6/15/2011 1 Chapter 31 Electromagnetic Oscillations and Alternating Current In this chapter we will cover the following topics: -Electromagnetic oscillations in an LC circuit -Alternating current (AC) circuits with capacitors -Resonance in RCL circuits -Power in AC-circuits -Transformers, AC power transmission (31 - 1) A horizontal power line carries a current of 5000 A from south to north. Earth's magnetic eld (60 μ T) is directed towards north and inclined down-ward 50 degrees to the horizontal. Find the magnitude and direction of the magnetic force on 100 m of the line due to the Earth's field.

If the page is turned by 30 around an edge the flux through it will be: A. 2.5Wb B. 4.3Wb C. 5Wb D. 5.8Wb E. 10Wb A car travels northward at 75 km/h along a straight road in a region where Earth’s magnetic field has a vertical component of 0.50 × 10 -4 T. The emf induced between the left and right side, separated by 1.7m, is: A. 0 B. 1.8mV C. 3.6mV D. 6.4mV E. 13mV L C The circuit shown in the figure consists of a capacitor and an inductor . We give the capacitor an initial chanrge and then abserve what happens. The capacitor will discharge th C L Q LC Oscillations rough the inductor resulting in a time dependent current . i We will show that the charge on the capacitor plates as well as the current 1 in the inductor oscillate with constant amplitude at an angular frequency The total energy in the circuit is t q i LC U ϖ = 2 2 he sum of the energy stored in the electric field of the capacitor and the magnetic field of the inductor. . 2 2 The total energy of the circuit does not change with time.
