Motional emf. Thursday, November 10, 2011 Today: lots of nice demos! Superconducting iClicker
The emf, when the loop
shown is pulled out of the
magnetic ﬁeld region, is ε =
0.4x0.02xB V CW. Usually I
/R. But if the loop is
superconducting, what is the
current in it?
A. ε / R = ε / 0 = ∞ A.
B. It cannot be ∞, so it must be 0. The superconductor is
not special - there
w ill be an emf and
non-∞ current, but we
do not know how to
Thursday, November 10, 2011 C. Because it is a superconductor, ε = 0 and I = 0.
D. It is some number between 0 and ∞ that we
do not know how to calculate.
E. It is some number between 0 and ∞ that
cannot be calculated in principle - it is random. Maxwell’s Equations
In the late 1800s the knowledge of electric and magnetic ﬁelds was
summarized with Maxwell’s Equations: ρ

c dt Thursday, November 10, 2011 EMF And Electric Fields
We have now seen that there are two different origins for
electric ﬁelds, that lead to two different types of ﬁelds.
We ﬁrst learned that charge distributions lead to electric
ﬁelds that start / stop on the charges. These electric ﬁelds
are derivatives / slopes of voltages, so the line integral of E.dl
is the voltage difference.
We now also know that changing magnetic ﬁelds lead to emfs
and electric ﬁelds with a different conﬁguration. The resulting
electric ﬁeld does not start or stop on a charge. Instead, like
w ith magnetic ﬁelds, these electric ﬁelds curl around and form
a closed loop. Here the line integral of E.dl around a closed
loop is -dφB/dt, but can be arbitrary if the loop is not closed.
It is not 0, as it would be if charges were generating the
electric ﬁeld. Thursday, November 10, 2011 Faraday’s Law iClicker

B. A (dB/dt) V.
C. -A (dB/dt) V.
D. (A/2) (dB/dt) V.
E. -(A/2) (dB/dt) V.

- The current in an ideal solenoid of area A in
increasing so that the ﬁeld increases into the
page at a rate dB/dt. This induces an emf in a
loop around the solenoid.
What voltage does the voltmeter hooked up
as shown measure? An emf is not a voltage.
For the emf around the loop, there is no
reason to think it is more positive on one side
than the opposite side - the cylinder part of
the probelm is rotationally symmetric. Induced Field / Emf Applications Magnetic regions on

topic of ``inductance’’. Thursday, November 10, 2011 Eddy Currents
Motion of a conductor
through a region of varying
magnetic ﬁelds leads to
e ddy currents circulating
around within the
conductor. Finite resistance
heats the conductor up
w ith power P = I2R. Thursday, November 10, 2011 Eddy Currents
The eddy currents form
patterns, as shown here.
If the disk is rotating freely,
its mechanical energy is
converted to heat and it
slows up. You can see that
the direction of the
magnetic force on the
currents, IdlxB, is to the
right, opposing the rotation
of the disk. This effect leads
to several applications for
e ddy currents. And some
nice demos. Thursday, November 10, 2011 Eddy Current Applications

Generally, if I have magnets moving near conductors, or
conductors moving near magnets, there are eddy currents which
can convert mechanical energy into electric currents, which
through P=I2R heat the conductor.
Let’s see some examples!
