Magnetism 165 19.57 (a) Since the magnetic field is directed from N to S (that is, from left to right within the artery), positive ions with velocity in the direction of the blood flow experience a magnetic deflection toward electrode A . Negative ions will experience a force deflecting them toward electrode B . This separation of charges creates an electric field directed from A toward B . At equilibrium, the electric force caused by this field must balance the magnetic force, so ( ) qvB qE q V d ==∆ or () 6 3 160 10 V 1.33 m s 0.040 0 T 3.00 10 m V v Bd ∆× == = × (b) The magnetic field is directed from N to S. If the charge carriers are negative moving in the direction of v G , the magnetic force is directed toward point B. Negative charges build up at point B , making the potential at A higher than that at B . If the charge carriers are positive moving in the direction of
