Unformatted text preview: cture 16- cture 16- 1 Magnetic field of a solenoid • A constant magnetic field could be produced by an infinite sheet of current. In practice, however, it is easier and more convenient to use a solenoid . • A solenoid is defined by a current I flowing through a wire that is wrapped n turns per unit length on a cylinder of radius R and length L .

The value of the Ampere’s Law line integral of B∙ dl counterclockwise around the circular path is μ o 3I 1 What is the magnitude of the currents in I 2 and I 3 ? a. I 2 =0, I 3 can be any value b. I 2 =0, I 3 can only be zero c. I 2 =I 1 , I 3 can be any value d. I 2 =2I 1 , I 3 can be any value e. I 2 =0.5I 1 , I 3 can be any value I 1 I 3 I 2 cture 16- cture 16- 5 Ampere’s Law in Magnetostatics The path integral of the dot product of magnetic field and unit vector along a closed loop, Amperian loop , is proportional to the net current encircled by the loop, t C C C B dl B dl I μ = = ∫ ∫ ur r g Ñ Ñ • Choosing a direction of integration. • A current is positive if it flows along the RHR normal direction of the Amperian loop, as defined by the direction of integration. Biot-Savart’s Law can be used to derive another relation: Ampere’s Law 1 2 ( ) i i μ- cture 16- cture 16- 6 Magnetization and “Bound” Current in Matter • Ampere : Aligned magnetic moments in magnetized matter arise due to microscopic current loops inside the material. the material....
